So tired of participating in my life. Wishing I’d died any of the times in the past when I was so close to death.

People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter

This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.

On August 2nd I’ll be at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop from noon until I’m done to sign copies of BRAVO and anything else folks might happen to want signed.
Now:
IF YOU WANT A COPY OF BRAVO and you cannot make it to the signing, for reasons of, say, oh, I dunno, geography, we can help you out!
The staff at Seattle Mystery are awesome. If you call or email (staff@seattlemystery.com), they will be more than happy to not only sell you a copy of my new, and frankly, very dashing and handsome-looking-on-a-bookshelf novel, they will make certain it is personalized as per your request.
You cannot ask for a better store to support, or better folks to rely upon here, people. Seriously.
And if you’re in the Seattle area, please swing by. It’s a lovely store, and they make me sit in a great big Nero Wolfe chair and I bring all my fountain pens and JB teases me about how I need to write another Kodiak novel and how much he misses Bridgett.
Worth the price of admission alone (and admission is free, so… you get it, right?).

The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.

9 photos that prove these “Women Against Feminism” still need feminism

Anti-feminist woman. Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it?

But that’s not the case for the “Women Against Feminism,” a community of women emerging on Tumblr and Facebook, uniting to celebrate their distaste for mainstream feminist movements. Through photos and signs, these women make their message crystal-clear: They don’t ever want to be called a feminist. 

Here are some examples highlighting the multiple flaws in these arguments, in the hopes that the ongoing conversation about feminism can eradicate these messages for good.

Try your hardest to work on your body language, give no signs of being thrown off by their games. Hold your head high and just conversate with your daughter. Tell her how beautiful she is and smile at her. Her smile will more than likely help cheer you up as well!

No, they won’t. Bullies do not stop bullying if they don’t get a reaction, they keep cranking it up until they get a reaction. Many studies on bullying show this. “Ignore them” doesn’t work.

Not just for those in Detroit, but anywhere where the right to water is being restricted or denied!

hey everyone, this post has only gotten a thousand or so notes and only a single follower of mine has reblogged this from me specifically.
Detroit has been shutting water off for entire neighborhoods regardless of whether people paid bills or not. Even if they didn’t, should that really mean that they should die of thirst? Should there really be a cost to stay alive?
Please, spread this. Link it on other sites so someone down the line who needs this anywhere can take back water, something that should be the right of every human being.

Water should not be controlled by corporations. Water should not cost money. No one should be denied access to water, ever.
Fight for your lives. Fight to help others. 
This is moral and ethical.
