Update 3/3/2016

So…

I’m…starting a publication.

I’m going to publish online ebooks because I can.  I’m going to figure out how to publish ezines and do that too.

And start a skeleton-assembly business.

Oh, and #amwriting.

 

HWA!

My Second Self-Published Ebook: The Autonomous Manifesto

If any of you have been following my blog for a little while you might remember one of my early posts in which I described some writing I’ve been doing on the subject of Autonomy and the right to consent in all chosen collectives. I’ve been writing about these subjects on another blog called All Things Debated and on a Facebook page I made. Finally, just this last August, I self-published my second ebook and first on the subject called The Autonomous Manifesto.

The Autonomous Manifesto, my Second Ebook.

The Autonomous Manifesto is a collection of my essays, rants, and poetry on the subject of autonomy. It’s free for download on Smashwords.com.

For those who don’t know, the first ebook I ever self-published is called What Makes a Mean Girl, and is a collection of poems on negative experiences in sex relations and attempts to find one’s way back to an actual connection with humanity. The poems are short and unpolished, since I mostly just wanted to know I could publish something myself. I’m also the model on the cover.

What Makes a Mean Girl

My next self-published ebook will be called What Makes a Man Eater, and will be a larger collection of poems continuing where What Makes a Mean Girl left off. It will further flesh-out the stories with more polished poetry. I’m hoping to release that anthology by this coming October.

My first self-published poetry anthology, “What Makes a Mean Girl.”

I can’t think of a single person I know who hasn’t heard my rambling that I would one day release my first poetry anthology. I’ve talked about it for two years. I’ve edited dozens of poems I’ve squirreled away and each of those poems can still use a lot more editing…but I’ve done it. I’ve finally self-published my first ebook poetry anthology entitled “What Makes a Mean Girl.”

In the time I obsessively worked on the completion of this anthology I ignored or missed out on some important things – bills, grocery shopping, friends birthday parties, activism events, among others. I would like to apologize to those people I promised socialization or any other form of interaction with in the time it took me to complete my anthology. I didn’t know it at the time, but my work had no intention of letting me go anywhere until it was finished.

Thank you Chris Loving-Life and Benjamin Dover for allowing me to use some of your beautiful photography for the anthology. Thank you Lily Lago for allowing me to use some of your amazing digital artwork.

This is my first self-publication but won’t be my last. I have a lot of exciting projects on the way including a 2nd edition of this anthology with more poems, more photography, and more artwork that I hope to publish by this time next year.
