In addition to being more snarky and mouthy in this space, I’m going to be adding in plugs for my books. This is supposed to be an author page. If it bothers you that a writer has the audacity to shill what they’ve written on their author page, that’s on you.
“A rat race is for rats. We’re not rats. We’re human beings. Reject the insidious pressures in society that would blunt your critical faculties to all that is happening around you, that would caution silence in the face of injustice lest you jeopardise your chances of promotion and self-advancement.”
Jimmy Reid, Alienation, inaugural address as Rector, University of Glasgow (Oct 1971)
I’m going to be adding posts for the books and zines that I’ve released in 2020. They will be back-dated to the release date. I’m only adding in one per day, because there’s no way to turn off notifications in WordPress. Adding them all at once means subscribers would suddenly be spammed with emails for the 14 books and 8 zines I wrote, and the 2 books that I edited. 24. That’s 24 emails. I won’t do that to you. That’s not even everything that I’ve produced this year. It’s just the stuff that I’m happy with.
Anyway, it means you’ll be seeing two, possibly three posts per day from me for a while. The normal daily post, a backlist book post, and possibly some off-the-cuff commentary. My upper limit is three. I’m not trying to overwhelm people.
