Teaser Thursday- Vegan Werewolf

Teaser Thursday- Vegan Werewolf

This was the scene that started it all. Spawned by a friend’s question “How could a werewolf be vegan,” I dashed off this short scene in May 2010. And it planted the seed that became my Real Werewolves Don’t Eat Meat series. 

The Wolf

No! Oh, God, anything but this!

I tried to see my body. Fur, check. Pretty off-white color, or at least I would have thought it was pretty if it didn’t cover me. Snout…

Publisher Drama… Again

Publisher Drama… Again

Not one of my publishers, fortunately, but it is one that at one point talked to me about writing for them. And one that several of my writer friends have been published by.

Graffiti Art - No Entry

Silver Publishing started off pretty well, with good intentions and an apparent interest in doing the best for their authors.

Then royalty payments started showing up late, if they showed up at all.

Someone took over the…

Went to a piercing place with my older kiddo yesterday. I have four piercings in each ear. I used to have a cartilage piercing in one ear and a navel piercing, but I had to take those out because they kept getting irritated.

I kind of wanted another piercing, so I was talking to the piercer. We agreed that since some of my pants and skirts come to my waist, I shouldn’t get another navel piercing, and that a cartilage piercing might have the same problem as before. He suggested facial piercings (nose, lip, or eyebrow), but I’ve promised my husband I won’t get those.

The female cashier cupped her breasts and said, “How about you get the twins done?”

Um… ouch?

the goal of the non-binary petition is flawed, this one is much more realistic and has a serious concrete goal that will help people definitely more than harm them (which the nb petition has the possibility of doing) 

This, completely. No one should have to be afraid of basic bodily functions because they might get hurt using the “wrong” restroom. If you’re female-gender, you aren’t going to want to use the men’s room, even if you have a penis. If you’re male-gender, you should be able to use the men’s room even if you have a vagina.And if you’re non-gender, gender queer, gender fluid, whatever, you should be able to use a bathroom that doesn’t require you to choose.
Also, from what I’ve observed, it seems completely accepted for a mom to bring little boys into the women’s restroom, but if a dad brings a little girl into the men’s room—or worse, brings her into the women’s room because he’s afraid to bring her into the men’s room—everyone’s horrified. I once had the experience of having a father with a little girl, maybe 3 or 4, asking me to take his daughter to the bathroom, because he was afraid to take her into the men’s room, he couldn’t go into the women’s room, and there was no “Family” restroom. I was a total stranger, and this was his only option other than to let his kid wet her pants. Let’s make all the large single-stall restrooms unisex, and turn the tiny little “family” restrooms into “Pee here if you don’t want to be around people who are biologically or gender-wise different from you.” That would be fair.
