I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the love and support throughout the years. You’ve all helped me through this journey and I have learned a lot and really come into my own and the response to today’s announcement truly overwhelmed me and reminds me of why I chose to do…

You want to be someone else? Come with me.

This is my dog, Lily. My sister and I bought her, without my dads permission and brought her home as a puppy about a year ago. My dad hates her, but me & my 2 sisters love her to death. This dog helps me cope with my depression and shes always great company to my sisters and I. My dad describes her as “tolerable.” Today, after having this dog for over a year, my dad is saying she needs to go, while he is angry at us for bringing her home, she has become part of the family and we can’t get rid of her, it’s too painful. After begging my dad for a while, he was still stuck on getting rid of her. I mentioned tumblr as a final option, and surprisingly he agreed to it. If I can get 200,000 notes by the end of July, we can keep her. He thinks it’s impossible, but I have faith. I’ve seen tumblr do it before. Please guys help me, I love this dog more than myself. Please oh please :c 

Another myth that is firmly upheld is that disabled people are dependent and non-disabled people are independent. No one is actually independent. This is a myth perpetuated by disablism and driven by capitalism - we are all actually interdependent. Chances are, disabled or not, you don’t grow all of your food. Chances are, you didn’t build the car, bike, wheelchair, subway, shoes, or bus that transports you. Chances are you didn’t construct your home. Chances are you didn’t sew your clothing (or make the fabric and thread used to sew it). The difference between the needs that many disabled people have and the needs of people who are not labelled as disabled is that non-disabled people have had their dependencies normalized. The world has been built to accommodate certain needs and call the people who need those things independent, while other needs are considered exceptional. Each of us relies on others every day. We all rely on one another for support, resources, and to meet our needs. We are all interdependent. This interdependence is not weakness; rather, it is a part of our humanity.

Hello, everyone.

I’m coming to you today with a request: reblog this post. Why? Well, lemme tell ya: I’m a starving artist. No, really. I’m not going to get into it because I really don’t believe in motivating income based on personal hard times, but let’s just say that over the course of the last two weeks I’ve had the rug pulled out from under my feet by my former job and all the money I was counting on coming to me to survive is no longer coming. Which is a bit of a shock, but at the same time is not surprising. Still, I digress right now, so let me continue.

If you click here, you’ll be taken to my Amazon.com author page, where you can view the two novels I have written (images above!) and purchase them if you care. There are digital and print versions, and sales of either benefit me greatly either way. Amazon has a fantastic profit margin for independent authors, and it’s been a great experience thus far. I’ve sold enough books to feel marginally successful. Unfortunately, marginally successful isn’t going to butter the bread for me or my two kids anymore. Also, I understand that sci-fi and horror books aren’t for everyone. Furthermore, I understand that there’s a lot of people under the gun right now as far as money is concerned, and that not everyone just has money to spend. So ultimately, here’s my plea:

If you don’t/can’t buy anything, please just reblog this. All I’m looking for is to spread the word a little bit so that I can expand my horizons while investing in other social media to get sales moving. That reblog button is all I’m asking for. I’m not looking for sympathy sales, because hey, who wants to buy a book because a guy is coming up short on cash? Not me. But if someone sees this and thinks, “Well, I’ll click the link,” and they see the books and decide they want to buy a copy simply cause they like what they see? That’s all I’m looking for. A little outreach.

Tumblr, thank you in advance. I know I can’t make money happen from Tumblr alone, but it’s a good place to start. The next couple of months are going to be rough. Regardless, I know I’m going to make it through simply because I don’t have another choice. And if you end up grabbing a book: thank you so very much in advance. Everything helps.

Goodnight, and thank you.
