First thing my last comment on my now infamous Paris Review Post is up as the featured essay in Literary Orphans.
The title is a nod to 2pac. This song in case you don’t know it.
I’m working on some new non fiction. An attempt at humor about sex work. My failed career as a foot fetish ho. Also in the pipeline some queer flash fiction, some more non fiction this time about my relationship with Western Beauty Ideals and how I came to reject them outright.
Shit even some poetry.
Speaking of poetry I have a new one up at Ink Node.
I’m still working on my freelance shit. Y’all.
I find the whole process so intimidating. I have a collection of resources and some basic how to shit and I know I just have to fucking write the shit.
OH I will have some book reviews coming up as well. I’ve read some good stuff and I will probably dedicate an entry to the Sherman Alexie book I’m reading because several of my favorite of his short works are in it. It is just so damn good.
How about some more stuff to read?
Check out this interview at The Rumpus with poet Danez Smith. Ugh yes. Fuck yes. Yes.
My Muse and beloved dear friend writer Remittance Girl posted this the other day about Bad Men.
Do you ever get the sneaking suspicion life would be a lot easier if we shut up about our erotic fantasies? I do.
Just read it.
I am going to talk about this at greater length later but a lot of my work is rife with various evils. Some of them erotic, some not. It is what moves me and I want to go in about it because I find it really important to talk about. For now go read that.
OH y’all. So I am obsessed with podcasts and I gotta shoutout Mick Betancourt. A.) He’s a funny mother fucker. B.) he’s posted some tidbits of his memoir in progress. Just go look. Listen.
Also this is an old episode but another of my favorite authors Craig Davidson was on the LA Review of Books. Check it out.
Tood Robinson from Thuglit posted a cool little Q&A type video on facebook. If you like your lit dark and grimy you for real need to read Thuglit. I’m serious and I’m not just saying that because I was in it once. Just do it.
Now a bit of self promotion.
As ever (I am getting better about keeping it updated) you can come like my official author page on Facebook here.
You can follow me on twitter @weebeasty but I warn you I ain’t shit. I livetweet things like my period and when I get street harassed. So yeah. That.
Read ALL the XOjane Self care articles here.
Milcah and I are working like hell on Self Care Like a Boss ahead of us birthing the book. Follow along here.
Keep your eye on the etsy shop. I have some new smut to add soon. I’m talking gender bending, Daddy/Girl/, Literary fetish deep dicking type shit. Until then a current favorite from readers is Bite An Erotic Tale. Remember this is grown folks lit.
Here is a taste:
He starts to speak and I lay my hand over his mouth and shake my head.
“Oh no. Not tonight. Shhh.”
I tilt my head forward and use my other hand to yank the collar of his shirt down to expose a patch of his fuzzy skin. I have to stand on tiptoe and use the hand on his mouth for leverage to get myself to the right height and angle, when I’m satisfied I lean in and bite.
OKAY enough. I have work to do.
What are y’all up to?
