I am haunted by all the editions of books that are prettier than the ones I already own.

Pictured: me holding the hardback US edition of my novel, Wolf in White Van, on the day I got it from Farrar, Strauss & Giroux: today, Thursday, August 21, 2014. Not to get all emotional with you but the first real ambition I ever had was to be an author. As a child I dreamt of seeing my name on book jackets. Now I am covering up most of that name with my hand, but yet refuse to re-take the picture, because I feel my deep-game goth powers are so strongly in evidence here that it must be shared as-is to give hope to both the revealed & the crypto-goths. 

Huge, huge thanks to all who brought me to this day - teachers, friends, all of you who’ve listened to my songs or read stuff I’ve written and connected with what you found there, who believed in me - may I always be worthy of your support!

Finally, because people will ask so why not get it out of the way up front: the lyric at the piano behind me is “Beyond the Mysterious Beyond” from The Land Before Time 7: The Stone of Cold Fire, a song which I can totally sing the hell out of, and you don’t have to take it from me, you can ask my son, who insists that I sing it at least eight times a day, which I do cheerfully and I’d do a ninth time, too, if he wanted, because, as I am always asking in my better moments, why the hell not.

Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence. 
I would never have been this happy.

do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours

there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.

but you will never be
and have never been
“too much.”

I really can’t wait for winter because then I can start wearing the other 97% of my clothes.

you just have to remain vigilant
