My Self Care book is HERE!

Are you ready homies?

Here it is:

Click here to check it out on smashwords.

Basically this is like having an extended remix of some of my self care entries. I'm giving you some tools and ideas and permission to care for yourself.

Here is a tidbit from the beginning:

This little book is about how to self-care as an act of absolute defiance.

This little book is about survival in a world that at best is unfriendly and at worst actively hostile.

This little book is especially for poor people, people feeling fucked up about their body image, people feeling fucked up about their rent, people worried about how they are going to make it day to do.

This little book is for people who are depressed, disabled, able bodied.

This is about you, it is for you because I want you to make it. I want you to have every tool and weapon I can think of to fight through the bad times.
You can get it right now for 2$.

Holy crap right?

If you can't purchase it that's okay too. If you want to help me out or support my indie writing adventures feel free to send friends the link, go to the page and click the like button. Spread it as far and wide as you want to because it is for everyone.

Is it for you?


I decided to write this because almost everything that is written about self care is so fluffy. It is always so pointedly directed at 'women' in cissexist terms.

What about the rest of us?

The thing is, ( I say something like this in the book) so many of us are fucked up. Where do those of us who do not identify with fluffy new age yammering go for support?

I have volunteered.

Come to me.

I am not an expert.

I'm just a writer who has been through some shit and learned some stuff I feel is valuable enough for me to share with people. With my people.

Who are my people?

My people are all kinds of people. Confused people. People with divergent gender ideas and weird hair. Stinky people. Depressed people. Tear filled human cupcake people who only want to eat a fucking cookie and be happy.

You are my people.

Now my darlings I have a lot of work to do right now. So thank you for your support and encouragement and the lovely notes.

I'm the worst correspondent ever but thank you.

Now go forth my homies, care for your fine fine asses in as awesome a fashion as you can.

I am going to eat some food then get back to work.

Homo Out.
