It has come to the point where I have to give consideration to who and what I am as an author. It is not an easy thing, nor is it fun.
There are certain questions I must ask myself.
I've noticed that several people want to leave reviews for my work but are worried about being outed.
Here is how to do so anonymous:
Log onto Amazon:
Go to my account
I want to cry.
I shouldn't say want to because tears are already escaping my eyes, so I should say "I am crying"
Hello my friends.
First off, I want people to know that I am feeling better. Yesterday was me going through some things that sometimes crop up.
This came up at counseling yesterday:

The Day After...
This was sent to me as a response to a review that I responded to, but it summarizes why I write:
I would like to say that because of the IOC decision to remove wrestling from the Olympics that I will not be posting any parts of the story this weekend, but that would be a lie (but would make it so
This just in. I made it to number 1 on Amazon. I think it is awesome and thank everyone who supported my work by purchasing a copy. It is truly an honor. Here is a pic as proof.
Wrestling Against Myself is a different kind of story for me, one that I openly share my theology in.
I often wondered why I had to go through a lot of the things that I did. It seemed that the universe thought that I was some cosmic joke and used me as it's whipping boy.
I have to admit, I can't figure life out. I've tried, and every time that I think I know something life sneaks behind me, kicks me in the seat of my skirt and runs away laughing maniacally.
The release of the new book is going smashingly well. Oh my God, I might actually be able to make it as a writer.

It's me again. I know I haven't posted a story since Christmas, but that's because I've been working on a doozy.
This isn't addressed to anyone in particular, but I do have several people in mind.
I met someone.
Three little words but the effect on my life in enormous.
First off, the cheap plug that today is my birthday. I am 38 and 1 depending how you look at things. This will be my first birthday as Katie and that's something to celebrate in and of itself.
Someone had offered to be my editor a while back ago and I wanted to take them up on the offer but couldn't find the message in my inbox.
Last week my van broke while I was delivering Sunday's paper. Not a good thing to happen, but what followed was even worse (See JennC I used the right one).
I do apologize for doing this. I know that a few months ago I changed my nickname from Little Katie to K.T. Leone.
I know I have been on this kick for quite some time (for me 11 days is an eternity), but I can't stress how much it has affected me that I've come out. I am relaxed, I am at ease, I am comfortable.
I keep surprising myself. It's like I never even knew the real me. It's been eye opening.
Things are happening fast and I am happy. Happy for the first time in a long time.
I know I have rubbed a few people the wrong way with my bluntness and the way I approached things in the past.
This is my response to someone who mentioned people looking at my facebook page and seeing me dressed as a woman:
So I've been keeping everyone up to date and just maybe I can help people who are kind of in the same situation as I am. I came out to everyone, and I mean everyone. Were my problems solved? No.
Finding Jenny, the epic length conclusion of the God Bless the Child trilogy (unless I go all Douglas Adams on everyone which is highly probable) is now available at Amazon for the kindle http://www.
As everyone is aware, about two weeks ago I received a phone call from a friend who was in dire straights and in need of a place to live.
The free give away has been a rousing success. I mean, I am floored. I have had over 600 people download God Bless the Child while it was being offered free on Kindle.
As everyone who has been following my blogs lately knows, an old friend from high school has come back into my life and is living with me along with his fiance while they get back on their feet.
Starting Christmas and running until the 29th, God Bless the Child will be free on Amazon for the kindle.
It is with deep sadness and regret that I have to inform the Big Closet community that we lost another one of our members. I have just been informed that Wren Phoenix has passed away.
Okay, I'm starting to grow uncomfortable.
I guess 2012 wasn't done with being extremely shitty.
This is odd and I don't know why I'm the only one who has realized that its happened.

I have a heavy heart, my dear, dear friends...
It has happened again, so maybe it's time to stop thinking that it is a coincidence. This is the second time in 2 weeks and it still gives me hope that I can pass.
Criticism has a bad connotation to it, but it really doesn't have to be taken in a bad way. I will point it out using my own writing as an example.
I really do try to keep on top of my writing. You can ask those part of team WAM that I normally stick to my schedule. BUt I am too heart broken to even try tonight.
I really don't know what's wrong with me. I wish I knew, really I did. It's the fact that I know who I am, I know what I am, but still I hide it from the world and even from myself.
