Michael La Ronn Michael La Ronn's blog:

Naast mijn wantrouwen sinds de vergiftiging en mijn natuurlijke neiging tot het ontwijken van conflicten, is één van de voornaamste redenen daartoe dat...

Jay  Nichols Jay Nichols's blog:
My debut novel Canis Major will be free the first five days of August. You can catch it here:

http://www.amazon.com/Canis-Major-Jay...

Fair warning: This is a loooong novel. The payoff is worth it, though. You will never read anything quite like it.


That's all.

Last December, I submitted a story for xoJane’s popular column, It Happened To Me. At the time, I’d only been reading xoJane for two months, and I naively considered the site a “safe space.” I had no idea my article would receive such a negative response. Commenters tore me apart.
