Today was terrible.
I’m probably going to get kicked out of Kindle Direct Publishing for doing this as it’s a violation of their terms but I see a lot of my comics friends on FaceBook talking about how we need to stop portraying guns as weapons that heroes use in the stuff we write that’s aimed towards kids. I couldn’t agree more. So here’s my story, The Monster Hunter, which is a YA story about the negative consequences of guns, free forever.
I don’t care what you do with it. I am officially declaring this story as part of the Public Domain. Read it, print it, illustrate it, print it out and spit on it.
I’m truly, truly sick of this shit.
I know guns aren’t the WHOLE problem, but not ten minutes ago my six-year-old asked me to let him download an iOS game whose self-described top feature is “15 Killer Weapons”.
So I reminded him that we don’t download games with guns - we never have. And you know what he said to me?
“Mommy, a blaster’s not the same thing as a gun.”
What the actual fuck? Where did he hear that? I don’t want to live in a world where that’s a thing first graders say.
Also, really looking forward to reading The Monster Hunter. It’s transferring to my Nook as we speak.
