It’s Saturday in Chicago! Yoga …Brunch … Walking [a lot!]…Food…Speakeasy!
Just your typical Saturday for us, right?! We woke up before the alarm, that was nice, definitely don’t want to miss this! Got dressed in our yoga gear, put our clothes over it, no changing rooms at the event, yoga mat and yoga towels in the beach bag I brought to carry everything. There was some planning that went into this! Headed out, Dunkin’ Donuts was across the street, let’s wake up! There…

Me enamoré de un fantasma que aunque fingió estar, jamás estuvo realmente. Creo que ya es momento de dejar la rosa en la tumba de nuestros recuerdos y despedirme con una última lágrima.
did you get your tickets? what do you mean for what- rolling loud! it's the first time the festival's in town and they have so many artists in the lineup, i'm just hoping i can get to see them all. oh, you wanna know who's coming? well, lets see...
welcome to rolling loud, my first (on this blog) open collab! the theme for this collab is music festivals. be it at a music festival, your character performs at the festival or your reader is a performer, whatever it is, just make sure it's themed around a music festival.

Spring Clean or Another Poem?
Do I really want to bother with housework today? I would really much rather sit down here and play with words on the computer than soap up a lather in a bucket or the washing machine. I’d rather write poems than make everything clean! Kim M. Russell, 19th April 2021 Image found on dreamstime.com My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: Come ‘bother’ up a poem De is back to bother us this…

Something I've discovered is that self-publishing takes money. While I'll itemize costs for you at some point, the gist is that everything, from an ISBN to copyright protection to formatting to website hosting (yes there will be a website!), costs. Part of what has made the rollout of The Killing Type take as long as it has is that I am paying these expenses as I can afford them; sometimes that means saving a few hundred dollars at a time for the next part of the project.
I work to support myself. While it would be a privilege to lean on, say, my family for financial support, I simply don’t have that option. Actually, at 26, I’m making slightly more money than the amount my mother made to support us when I was growing up--still not very much. And while I’m happy to work and always have (my first gig was as a 14-year-old at a hipster toy store), my true dream is to be able to devote myself fulltime to writing stories. You know the stuff: stories that are engaging. Stories that feel like a game or a puzzle, somehow intimate because it’s also about the reader. Stories you want to come back to, hopefully. All that love and calamity.
For a long time I was wary of the donation model of income--maybe I just didn’t feel like I had the right to ask.
I’m asking now. While it’s still fairly bare-bones, I decided to create a Ko-fi account. If you’re interested in supporting this next step of TKT, or future writing of mine (short stories, articles, as well as a longer piece I have planned with an adventure element for the reader), please consider donating. I am also looking into perks I might be able to offer to those who donate, so if you have something in mind, feel free to let me know.
You, dear reader, have always been at the heart of my passion for writing. There is nothing like creating something you can enjoy. I am humbled by your support.
You can find my Ko-fi link in the blog description or

Diamonds and Toads
This is a piece I've been playing with in mind for a little bit, and while I think I've finished with this version, I'm not ready to leave the subject matter.
For some reason, I can't stop thinking about the Diamonds and Toads fairytale. That's the one where your classic poor, beautiful, good, and abused heroine gets "blessed" by a fairy (witch maybe?) and has jewels and flowers fall from her lips everytime she speaks. Her evil stepsister (another classic) gets cursed to have snakes and toads fall from her mouth everytime she speaks.
This fairytale always bothered me, even as a child, and I felt sorry for the fates of both women. I've been playing around with drawing them and I haven't really been satisfied with the outcome yet. I do really like elements of this version which is why I decided to share this piece, but I don't think it represents exactly what I'm looking to show. Still haven't figured out what that is, but it's a journey!
Hey gang! Things are moving along over here in self-publication land, and we are in the home stretch. Naturally, this is also the nittiest, grittiest part of the whole project. But we're very close.
Jess @ziamhaze mentioned to me a while back that knowing how I handle this model of fic-to-publication may be useful to others, and I agree. While there are many many guides on self-pub on the internet, few grapple with the issue of turning fic into true, blue, copyright-able material. I'm planning on posting about the experience of self-publishing--I feel like I've taken a crash course on the subject this season--but I was curious if there were any questions in particular you guys would like to see answered. Y'know, for when you're selling your own wonderful stories. :)
So: what would you most like to know about publication? Or any other aspect of this process. Please let me know and I'll try and make as clear a guide as possible when the time comes.
