Patreon: Why I Started One

I’ve long been struggling (as you may know by the frequency of these posts) to continue writing creatively (being in school, writing academically is something else entirely), and I figured being forced to give content on a regular basis would give my creative juices a push and also help me supplement life (and spread the word about the books I already have in stores).

Gothic Lit and Music

So my love for the goth subculture was reinvigorated with a journey to a goth club with my darling fiance over the weekend, as well as my reading of Jane Eyre for class (that doesn't start 'till next Tuesday mind you), and I've got to thinking about Goth in music and Lit as you do and how much it moves one if one can identify themselves in the lyrics, imagery, and themes.

Excitement in an Old WiP & Black Faces in Fantasy Literature

But upon coming back to it the other day I did, I remember reading over my work and thinking, "Why isn't she [the MC with all the knowledge and power], black?" There was no reason she couldn't be after all, and I'd been inspired by all of the covers with black protagonists I'd seen in the fantasy section of Barnes and Noble, understanding an apt confusion for readers when they would see my DARK WORLD series and not see any black characters on the covers, though there are black characters in the world.
