Greetings, Potentially Faithful Reader!
You don’t necessarily recognize me. Well. Let’s see.
I’m DH Young, a writer who kind of hopes you meant to get to this page. But even if you didn’t? Stick around for a bit. We can try each other out, see how it goes, hold off on the juicy bits until the second date…
Ha. Went right off the reservation, didn’t I? And didn’t even warn you it might happen. Hmm.
Well, now you know something about me: I open my mouth and get myself into trouble. Generally I do it just for fun. A bad habit, I know.
After you look around the site…maybe you can tell me something about yourself too? See, there are plenty of writers who have thousands upon thousands of readers. They can’t respond to individuals. But I’m not one of those. Not sure I even want to be, actually. It sounds sort of lonely. We don’t do lonely around here if we can help it.
That said…I’m an indie, which means I do it all myself (or hire it done). So whatever you find here, it’s my fault. Ditto for the books and stories.
Is my stuff any good? Opinions will vary. Waist sizes too, but I’m not pointing any fingers. Er…what I mean is, so far the reviewers (mostly at Amazon) have been kind, and I’ve dedicated myself to this effort to see where it goes. Always wanted to, and now I can. I promise to do my best. It’s my third “career,” you see (the others having been software and professional poker), and I figure I need to put time and effort into it. Sort of an apprenticeship, only to an ideal rather than a person.
Ideally? You’ll find a book or story you’ll enjoy. Or maybe more than one (this could actually happen…I think). Or maybe you’ll just come along and enjoy the journey with me. It really doesn’t work without you.
I’ve been blogging here since 2009, but that doesn’t mean any of that stuff is going to be worth your while. Maybe! But maybe not, too.
Thing is, the blog has become a place for me to post whatever I happen to be thinking about. Often I write blog posts and hide them from everyone but myself–ridiculous, I realize, but there’s been a lot to think about that involves SECRETS TOO DANGEROUS TO TELL. Or, anyway, secrets not mine.
So, the best stuff? Probably the “New Release Club,” which gets you a free story in your inbox every month. If you want to read random rants and/or rant in return, welcome to the rest of the site! It’s fun here. For some. Maybe for you, even, but we won’t speculate as to why. It’s not done.
I’m rambling. Again. So.
Thanks for coming by!
