(Warning: Rant ahead.) Just in case it wasn’t clear from what I write, and in case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook (where I am quite active and vocal) here are a few things I believe. (The following list comes from a post I put up on Facebook back in June… … Read More
*grumble* 7/22/2018 – Various updates, Facebook’s an *ssh*le, yadda-yadda.
Subscribe to my newsletter and never miss an update! So I got whacked with a stint in Facebook jail until next week, so I’m unable to post to groups. All because of a link I posted IN MY OWN READERS GROUP to a site that Fb apparently doesn’t like. It was to a site that … Read More
Sign up for my newsletter! Every once in a while, I’ll see a comment, usually on Facebook or in a review, that goes something like this: “It’s like Tymber has an agenda or something.” I don’t believe it’s merely a coincidence that one of those kinds of comments is pretty much always referring to a … Read More
If you don’t like it? Don’t read it. #BannedBooks #rantalert
So, apparently (quelle shocker) there’s a book kerfluffle right now. An author wrote a dark erotica book that went #1 in the romantic erotica category on Amazon. Then a bunch of other people started reporting it to Amazon. NOT cool. Not cool at ALL. If you don’t like a book, don’t read it. But unless … Read More
What am I reading, a rant about pirates (sorry), and Coming Soon.
I had a new release on Monday, in case you missed it! 🙂 Rhymes With Orange (Suncoast Society 35, MMMF, BDSM) is now available from BookStrand. http://www.bookstrand.com/tymber-dalton Note: It takes 4-6 weeks for books to be released to third-party sites. I have no control over that. If you have a Kindle, you can order directly … Read More
Send in the clones. (Please?!?) & #PeepPimpage
Last week there was another incident of some asshole on Facebook openly asking on her Facebook page for links to pirate sites for e-books “because she’s poor and authors make enough.” I. Can’t. Even. Contrary to popular belief, most writers do not make enough money to quit their evil day jobs. Hence why they have … Read More
Authors: Stop it with the cliffhanger shite already. Seriously. Just…stop.
Okay, I think the blog post title says it all. I GET it. When KU first rolled out back in 2014, some of y’all immediately saw an opportunity to make a little extra change. Take a big book and break it down into smaller chunks so you got more money. Unfortunately, that got out of … Read More
Arguing gun control with an idiot…
*Rant warning. If you don’t want to read a gun control rant, then skip this. I’ve closed comments because I honestly don’t feel like dealing with trolls, or having trolls go after commenters. Feel free to rant on your own website/Fb profile pro/con what I’ve said. tl;dr – I am a gun owner who is … Read More
Kim Davis deserves to be in jail.
(Warning: Ranty Pants are ON.) Kentucky clerk Kim Davis deserves to be in jail, and kudos to the judge for not simply fining her, which might allow her supporters to rally around and raise funds for her, not allowing her personally to feel the fallout of her failure to perform her duties. Yes, my head … Read More
WTF GooglePlay Books? You are ALLOWING pirates to operate!
This shitstain of a cuntnugget needs to go down: https://play.google.com/store/books/author?id=Dogukan+Akbulut ALL the books he has posted are ILLEGALLY POSTED. And I found out today, after discovering he’d posted at least one of mine, that authors have been sending takedown notices to GooglePlay Books for WEEKS and their books are STILL showing up there. The illegally … Read More
“Freedom” to discriminate.
(I want to start out this rant by saying that I’m NOT against religions or people who are religious. I’m not. I use examples in here to explain my points, not to pick on any particular group. I get that there are a WHOLE lot of religious people who are horrified by this law in … Read More
What. The. Actual. Fark. (re: Clean Reader app)
Chuck Wendig made the points better than I could. So, THIS: Fuck You, Clean Reader (And the “dislike” graphic is NOT for Chuck’s post, it’s for the app he’s talking about.) As of me posting this, my big comment is awaiting moderation (probably because I referenced a couple of links in it) but this is … Read More
Grr. Ready the pitchforks…
(Note: This post is NOT directed at the majority of my readers. This post is directed at the ones who STEAL my work and deprive me of income I desperately need right now.) Part of my control panel for my website shows me stats, including page hits, page views, inbound search terms, etc. Honestly? When someone … Read More
Dear The Big Bang Theory Writers: You Suck.
Dear The Big Bang Theory Writers: You suck. It’s called a “character bible,” assholes. Writing 101. Yes, I realize the fact that I’m venting about a TV show makes me more than a little Sheldonesque, but, LIKE SHELDON, I am a TAURUS. You guys dropped the ball big time on tonight’s show. (Should be called … Read More
Dear Vanillas: Fifty Shades of Grey does not represent ME.
Dear Vanillas who are about to go see Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie (or who are refusing to go see the movie because they think it’s about abuse), I am a real-life practitioner of BDSM. I am a switch and submit only to my Sir, although I identify as a Dominant in all other … Read More
