Why Protect Your Nips?
Because my best friend made me a logo for my first book that I love so much I wanted to use it everywhere. Because we all have them. Because they provide pleasure and sometimes food. Because they are sensitive and close to our hearts. And because everyone has an opinion on everyone else’s nips (and everything else personal), so they need to be protected. Just like writing. And because you can take it anyway you want. Just like writing. And because I too am influenced and inspired by artists of all genres.
Protect Your Nips is a little random. I am a little random. Some people are capable of becoming excellent at one thing, blogging or writing about one thing their whole careers. It’s a blessing. One I do not have. I’m the kind of writer who

Thoughts to share as I do research for my novels, visions for creating a better world. But, I do not fit in a box, or a brand with a specifically descriptive name. I’m like GE, I do a little bit everything, mostly do good, and sometimes destroy the world. My first book was nonfiction about breastfeeding. My second, a fiction novel about women in Denver politics in 1912. My third, an adult interactive murder mystery. This space is for all my other thoughts, ideas, newly forming themes for future works, and stuff I think is good but no one else wants to publish. All the things that don’t fit in a box - or an explicative brand.
Because obviously you don’t want to missing anything. And because it’s easier to have every new edition of the newsletter go directly to your inbox. And because you pay for the music you love, the TV and movies and podcasts that entertain you. Because you value thinkers as much as producers. Because you know that artists are worth paying for, and you’ve secretly always wanted to be a benefactor with an artist in your attic.
