Because some men are ass-heads.

Dude. Dude. DUDE!

If you men really want us to stop milking you for money, attention and free drinks why, why, WHY do you literally make it a rule in your game? It's like you almost demand for us to treat you like a walking ATM.

This. Book. Is. Ridiculous. 

If you bought this book to try to hook up with these hotties of the night you need to stop hanging out in bookstores and go spend time at the gym. If you don't have a beefy wallet, you need a beefy chest. Seriously. It's that simple.

The women who are self proclaimed nerds in this book call themselves, "a nerd" because they read, "a book". And it was probably this one.

If you have a beefy wallet, skip the book and buy the girl.

Asking a stripper what her real name is, then saying to her, "No, don't tell me. I like the mystery." is going to only get you asked for another $20.

Treat us like targeted door prizes at a raffle and by virtue of human nature we'll in turn see how many tickets we can get you to buy.

Why must you perpetuate this?

I hate selling this thing.

Adult Coloring is Becoming More Of a Trend, And Getting More Adult!

The coloring table at our indie bookstore!
It's nothing new. Creative therapy has been used to de-stress and decompress in an official capacity since the 1940s. Intensive art therapy is being given to combat survivors to help with post traumatic stress disorder.

What if you don't want to commit to molding clay or watering down paints? You can pick up some colored pencils!

While coloring books like, The Secret Garden and The Enchanted Forrest are fun for both children and adults, I suggest flipping through others just to be sure they're age appropriate. 

This seemingly innocent coloring book is filled with Hindu mythology. You'd enjoy the Goddesses, Mandalas, and Sacred Geometry.

When it comes to your little one, this kind of coloring will probably not relieve stress. 

The Enchanted Forrest and Secret Garden are both safe bets. You can create your own scenes and find hidden artifacts. For those of you who want a more adult option, there are plenty to choose from!

Has anyone else joined in the color craze?

Feast or Famine!

It's the first Wednesday of the month. Time for Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Support Group post!

I'm feeling very fortunate these days. I landed a freelance writing gig with a company that umbrellas seven different publications, I have an interview today with a San Francisco tech company, and I start grad school next month. 

Another proof of my mystery novel, Chosen is on its way to my twitchy little hands. My editors have been awesome. 

My neck has locked up (I was in a car accident last December) and I haven't been able to run, which makes me depressed. I'm trying to go for a light jog today, but the pinched nerve in my neck dictates that I take it easy. I just know that if I could really run I'd sweat out all the stress.

Until then, I'm slowly masticating the giant bite I took this summer. Trying not to choke.
