Is there any way at all to get a hard copy of your non-fanfictiony stories? Besides just printing it out, I mean. I would just about kill to get a real-life bound copy of Game Theory.
There’s not, I’m afraid. For a few reasons, but the two biggest reasons are:
1. It’s not edited to a standard where I’d be happy releasing it to hard copy. And editing something that’s 4.5 standard books long is…a full-time job that I kind of don’t have time for at the moment. Boo. If only I had more hands. And brainspace!
2. It’s too long for most POD (Print on Demand) services anyway, and would need to be broken down into about three or four books (which would each still be longer than the standard sized novel, and therefore more expensive - it may end up costing $35-50 US just for Game Theory, for example - tbh, it may end up costing more, because it’s the need for extra pages etc. that ends up blowing out the costs for POD).
That being said, I am working on non-fanfictiony stories (this should be the official name :D) that are in book form. But they’ll be - at least initially - eBooks. I’m hoping to release the first in the next 3-6 months (it mostly depends on how fast a turnaround I can get from my primary beta, who is extremely heavily pregnant, lol). If there’s enough of a call for it, especially through Patreon and similar spaces, I’ll consider a POD outlet too like Lulu. (I’m already a member there, just in case).
(And I would just about kill to get a real-life bound copy of Game Theory too anon oh my god. Like trust me, if it happened, there’d probably be like, little internal illustrations and the cover would get the whole works and so on but it’d be such a vanity project. With my health and stuff, it’s hard to justify years of work when there’s so many other things to be working on.
Please stop praising Taylor Swift for “reclaiming the snake”.
She got caught out in several lies and STILL continued to play the victim (don’t even get me started on how she’s played into the innocent white female narrative) - something she’s built her whole damn career on.
What she’s doing by “reclaiming the snake” is pretty much saying she has nothing to apologise for. And YET AGAIN making herself out to be someone to be pitied and to rally behind because she’s so brave and she’s the underdog. It’s frustrating and embarrassing and the fact that she’s STILL using this whole narrative just shows that she hasn’t learned anything.
