• Erasure

    Posted on 27/08/2014 by Jamie in internet, LGBTQ, rant, Uncategorized.

    So, once upon a time–about 10 years ago–I was in a room with three other people we’ll call Sunshine, 3PO and Booger. (Why do I call him “booger”? Because I picked him! HA! *rimshot*) All of us come from upper/middle class white upbringings. Essentially, we were a coffee house sofa and two cans of hairspray [...]

  • Gathering Rosebuds

    Posted on 20/08/2014 by Jamie in Uncategorized.

    I keep a box under my desk. My handwriting graces a tab on it and reads, “Feel Good, Inc.” Inside are things that make me happy. Notes from friends, a drawing by my daughter, a bottle cap from a night out with my husband, the cork from a champagne bottle we shared on our wedding [...]

  • One Spark of Madness

    Posted on 11/08/2014 by Jamie in Uncategorized.

    At cons or in emails or in general conversation, I’m often asked who inspires me. Who are my influences? Who do I look up to in terms of writing, creating…? This list is diverse and often changes depending on what facet of myself is most magnified at the time… …but one that is almost ever-present [...]

  • I’m Back!

    Posted on 11/08/2014 by Jamie in anthology, bad blogger, Unveiled.

    Hullo, doves! I’m writing to you on this, the first day of school! My daughter started 4th grade today and I’m still trying to figure that out! I understand that this means I have the house to myself again and that’s awesome, right? So what did I do this morning? Plucked my eyebrows and binge-watched [...]

  • IT LIVES!

    Posted on 16/07/2014 by Jamie in editing, gifs ahoy, process, Uncategorized, Unveiled, writers, writing.

    OMG I’m alive! No really, it was hit or miss there for a few weeks. Where have I been, you might ask? Well, I’ve been editing UNVEILED. And that has been a roller coaster. I’m sure that I’ve done something like this in the past, but I feel like I need to take you on [...]

  • In The Presence of Royalty

    Posted on 17/06/2014 by Jamie in boomdeyada, Wild Card.

    This is just a quick post to celebrate yet another first in my writing career. I got my first royalty check!  You might be wondering, “But Jamie, why is this a thing? You’ve been paid for writing before.” (And I will be again, that’s the beauty of it.) Here’s a quick explanation of royalties in [...]

  • So You Have An Author: A Guide

    Posted on 12/06/2014 by Jamie in Phoenix comic Con, writers, you.

    As Con season is upon us, I feel that there are some PSAs that need to be repeated. Obviously, the anti-harassment and anti-douchebaggery messages are at the top of my list. Keep your hands to yourself. Cosplay does not equal consent. Don’t be a dick. But there’s more to going to a convention than costumes [...]

    Hey, kids! So next week is the really big show. My home away from chai, PHOENIX COMIC CON! I’m so fucking excited for this year. I’ve gone for years as an attendee, but this year I’m there in a professional capacity. And I get to meet people that I’ve talked to online for years. Some [...]
