ALRIGHT.. so am I the only person who is fangirling about the movie Into the Forest? I mean, sure, who doesn’t love Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood… BUT TOGETHER!?
Let’s be real here, anyone who’s ever read the synopsis to the story knows that these ladies are going to bone. Sure it’s incest, and sure most of you are thinking. ewwwww…. But it’s a movie, and these girls should have been lesbians together long ago.
NEW OTP: PageWood

I rest my case.
Not a problem! I’m halfway done with the next chapter. Should be up by tomorrow!
It’s been two whole years and I finally got around to updating it. I will say the first few chapters are rough (this one might be too), but I wasn’t much of a writer back then…. and I can’t say I’ve gotten any better, but I hope ya’ll enjoy it! I know the new chapter is short, but I’m already working on the next one, so it will be coming shortly!
BOOM. Ask and ye shall receive!
Earlier this week I received a diagnosis for all my recent bodily woes and was told I might not get better. It’s possible I might; the human body is still a mystery to even the most brilliant doctors. Unfortunately arriving at my diagnosis cost me thousands of dollars, months of discomfort, and immeasurable stress, and there doesn’t seem to be imminent reprieve. I can’t get a job because some days I am too nauseous to leave the house.
I’ve considered putting up a “donate” button in my sidebar to help me pay off my medical debt, but I’m inherently uncomfortable with that because it could threaten my future therapy license if anyone misinterpreted it as paying and unlicensed person for mental health services. (I don’t provide counseling services on here, but I wouldn’t want anyone to misunderstand that and donate under an incorrect impression.) Aside from that, I’m uncomfortable asking for money without being able to give anything back.
So my solution is to self-publish Wherever the Dandelion Falls and hope enough people are willing to buy it. It’s a product I feel comfortable selling for a profit.
If you want to support both my health and/or the hundreds of hours I put into writing my book, here are ways you can do so:
- Buy a digital copy of Wherever the Dandelion Falls for yourself and/or a friend on Amazon. It is also available on Barnes & Noble, but Amazon’s internal algorithm notices purchase patterns and will promote the book to non-Tumblr people who read lesbian fiction if it sees a sudden influx of purchases. This is how I made the majority of my profit from other books; for each person in the fandom who bought TtLW or MaYaD, twenty non-fandom readers bought a copy. That’s tremendous internet influence you have, Brittanians! If I can sell 500 copies, I will be able to pay off my medical debt. Considering I sold 5000 of my other novels, I’m hopeful. But I can’t do it without you.
- Promote the book by reblogging my post, tweeting, or submitting to LGBT book lists. There are many avenues for doing this and I will trust your collective and individual wisdom for getting the word out there. You probably know more than I do!
- If you’re not able to buy a copy, write a favorable review of Wherever the Dandelion Falls on Amazon, B&N, or GoodReads. *** Please do not mention that it is also published as fanfic.*** I do not intend to take the fanfic version down, but alerting potential buyers that it is available for free cuts into my profits. I worked very hard on this story and I feel it is reasonably priced. Brittana fandom readers get to read the Brittana version for free because they’re awesome. Please be smart about your reviews — It will look suspicious if it gets fifty reviews within a day of being made available.
I’ve always noticed a reflection of the themes of my books in my own life, and the lesson of letting go and trusting the universe has been a tough one to swallow in recent months. Thank you all for your support and kind words during this stressful and emotional time.
For those of you who read Dandelion as fanfic, I hope you enjoy the changes I made to the story; for those of you who haven’t read it, I hope you find Riley and Faye as delightful and frustrating as I do.
I was actually rereading that the other day and wondering if anyone would still be interested in me continuing the story. I’ll give it a go this weekend and post an update here when the new chapter is up!
So I’m coming out of retirement to make another music video. However, I’m stuck on which song to pick for Paily. I’ve narrowed it down, but would appreciate some anchors help in making that final decision.
I’m also open to other suggestions if ya’ll have any?
Setting: Directly after the big Paige/Emily/Allison ‘hug it out’ fest.
Author’s note: This is just a oneshot. It’s been ages since I’ve written anything and there’s wine involved… So be gentle.
