I’ve been sitting here messing about with pictures for the last hour or so. I think that’s about the longest I’ve sat down in the last week and a half (when not in a car). Seriously.

But oh, what a week and a half it has been, and what a lot of work has been done! The new kitchen is finally starting to take some sort of shape–at least, it’s now possible to sor...

“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."

“NO reader has ANY obligation to an author, whether it be to leave a review or to write a "constructive" one. I put out a product. You are consumers of that product. Since when does that mean you have to kiss my ass? Hey, I like Pop-Tarts and eat them a few times a year; since when does that mean I'm obligated to support Kellogg's in any way except legally purchasing the Pop-Tarts before I eat them? I wasn't aware that purchasing and consuming a product meant I was under some sort of fucking thrall in which I'm only allowed to either praise the Pop-Tart (which to be honest isn't hard, especially the S'mores flavor) or, if I am going to criticize a flavor, offer a specific and detailed analysis as to why, phrased in as inoffensive and gentle a manner as possible so as not to upset the gentle people at Kellogg's."

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
Ernest Hemingway

Elena Stacia, I just had to tell you how much I love this series! Chess and Terrible (especially Terrible!) are among my favorite characters ever.... I love that they are not your typical leading characters, but flawed and real. I am so sad that I just finished Chasing Magic, and now have to wait for the next one :(

message 13: by PageTurner (last edited Sep 23, 2014 09:04PM)

PageTurner Stacia, thanks for adding me as a friend! Your Downside Ghosts series is a work of far my favorite UF series EVER!

message 12: by Kim

Kim  *Mo Chridhe* Hi Stacia! I just finished Chasing Magic last night. I loved it so much! I hope you continue writing Downside. I don't think I'll ever get enough of it. I know they're fictional but I care so much about Chess and Terribe. I think this will be a long book hangover.

message 11: by Maggie

Maggie Ms. Kane, I cannot tell you how pleased I am to find a punk author. Your Downside series is among my favorites. Anyone who puts The Stooges in their books is my hero. :)

Derrolyn Anderson You're awesome. Just the name "Foot Foot" alone...LOL XD

message 4: by Lisa

Lisa I recommended your Downside Ghost series to my favorite local book after lunch I was happy to see your books are on display! :~)

message 3: by Lisa

Lisa just ordered the first Megan Chase! I have a feeling I'm going to be re-reading my Downsides again. I can't stop comparing each book to them. :) This is a good thing, except the waiting for #4 will seem long!
Have a great week.
