omg, our novel came out today. wanna help a girl out by spending three bucks on a book?
it’s based on something that actually happened, a real life love story gone terribly, horribly wrong. you can ask me stuff about it, i just can’t reveal certain details because the IRL catherine is still alive and doesn’t wanna be outed. just a warning—we don’t shy from the dark things that happened between these two teenagers in love; we actually downplayed a lot of it because it seemed way too fantastical for fiction. IRL thomas had several psychological diagnoses and got increasingly erratic as time wore on; cath endured it for years, so be warned that it gets pretty dark. there’s a lot of drug use and rude language, too.
we feel it’s important to tell stories like this, though. if our writer’s page manages to get off the ground, we’ll be posting some of the real documents we used (there are boxes) to help write the story, like the letters thomas wrote while involuntarily staying in various mental institutions, and maybe some of the newspaper clippings or even his death certificate. we’ll see what can be dug up!
anyway, thanks for helping spread word about this! if you’re poor like me, shoot me a message. i’ll email it to you. you can maybe buy it later when you’ve got three bucks to spare. i’m dead serious.
oh, and here’s a link for those of you in the UK & thereabouts.
The Fall Season 2 trailer.
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking. So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?
Do cops want CCTV cams removed from businesses and streets? If they don’t want to monitored on their jobs, why should everyone be monitored at theirs (and in their LIVES)? Oh, it makes cops’ job easier to have a video record of crimes and infractions? Huh.
I work in an office and not retail, but I also know that every website I visit, and instant message or email I send is monitored and stored by my employer.
Also, surveillance cameras in public areas are nearly everywhere in America, watching just about everything completely innocent people are doing.
Police should be held to a higher standard than the public they are sworn to protect, and the data shows that cops equipped with cameras are simply better cops.
And the church said?
