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.

This.

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.
