It’s been a week, and I had no idea that this would be as insane as it has been. I’m not going to address reaction to the work in a critical way, because people are allowed to like/dislike it for whatever reasons they might possess. And I am not arguing with them. It does have legit flaws, but every work does, and in the end, it is what it is.
But some people have asked for a few things:
1. Are going to put this up for sale anywhere? Probably not. I released it into the wild, and it has been free for a week, and it should be free. I feel skeevy making money on it now.
That said, I am going to include it in a book of short stories available later this year, probably from Lulu, just for giggles.
2. Are you going to expand it? Probably not.
3. Can I e-book it? I guess you can, but please don’t pass it about too much? I mean, I can’t stop you, but I kind of I dunno, prefer to be able to see the pdf and approve it. I dunno. It just seems strange. But like I said, I can’t stop you.
4. ARE THERE SHIRTS?
Y YES THERE ARE! You can now buy the shirt! All proceeds go to Planned Parenthood. Thanks to the awesome S. Evelyn Vincent over at Octopus Gallery for the design and running the shop. She’s good people, and while you’re at zazzle, stop by her real shop.
5. Are there armbands?
Dear god I hope never.
6. DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE RETWEETED BY FAKE RICK SANTORUM? Yes, yes I did, and it is beautiful.
Lastly. Thank you for all the links and facebook posts and tweets and retweets. Every day I feel heartened that I’m not the only one who feels this way, and that there are a lot of us.
