New Page on the Site for Classic Reads

I have created a new page under the Fiction tab for some of my favorite stories and poems, as well as others that are available, that are public domain. This means that these stories are old enough that they are freely available for anyone to read online. I hope you enjoy the selection and find use in the links to sites like Project Gutenberg and other freely available literature.

You can navigate via the Fiction tab or here.


Amanda Leanne Status and Issues

This is an announcement to clarify some things and go into some issues that Amanda has been having lately.

If you are familiar with the author, she has a lot of health problems and disabilities. Recently she has been very, very ill and ended up in the hospital. She is back home and recovering but there are some complications and she may end up back in the hospital.

This page has been contacted by several people and organizations requesting copies of her books as donations, some specifying signed copies, for auctions, reviews, and other purposes. Amanda publishes her physical books through a print on demand site. She is her own publisher (Mune’s Quill). This is an extremely low budget business with currently only one nonfiction and 3 fictional books under her name and brand that she has full rights to. Due to disabilities and lack of funding to put into her writing business, she operates on a minimal budget. It cost her money to order books. It takes time to get them. It costs twice as much for her to then send them out. As much as she loves helping people and working with charities, she can not afford to buy stacks of books, sign them, and then mail them out to people for free. She has given away over 1200 ebooks and often runs free promos 1 to 3 times a year on her ebooks where they can be “purchased” for free.

With her current health status, I was a bit appalled at how pushy some got with telling me how to get her to send them free books or even name plates. She is under a lot of stress and is having a rough time. This came off as highly disrespectful and rude. I was polite in informing people of her condition and situation and the return was more pushing asking for freebies and action for a caring but ill person.

Thank you to all who follow and support her and definitely to those who read her works. The best support she can get is having people purchase her books and tell people about them. She makes less than a dollar on each book sale (ebook and paperback) because she keeps her prices low and affordable as much as she can for those who want to read her books.

As for signed copies, she has wanted to purchase a small amount of her books and get name plates and have them signed and sell them on her website for those wanting such a thing. She hopes to eventually have the funding to get book marks and other author merchandise and to do giveaways and so forth (a common trend on social media). But currently this is not feasible for her budget.

She is a private person and this is not something she would usually want said or put out there, but she is under enough stress and so I (a friend who sometimes posts and manages things when she is unavailable) am asking for understanding, patience, and respect.

Thank you all so much.


How to see if my books may not be for you.

TW can be beneficial in genres where it isn’t always expected. When you write some pretty dark and psychological horror and thrillers, especially those with a twist, it can be difficult to give a warning without ruining important events in the book.

There are warnings in the first pages of my books, but if you are buying them before looking inside (or just want to check) you can check out doesthedogdie.com to see what the books may possibly contain and if this will make it more of an unpleasant experience than you wanted.

Most of my writings are based on nightmares, terrifying scenarios, and dark ideas and are often rather grim. I never aim to offend, only to thrill and haunt.

If you want to know how bad a scene is, do not hesitate to comment or message me for more information.

Sever the Circle ebook Issues : SOLVED

Edit: The files have been updated properly! If your wbook version still has an issue in chapter 14, deleted and reinstall for the corrected version. Thank you so much!

Over the holidays I had many people take advantage of the free download opportunities for my books. This was amazing and I thank all of you who have read and enjoyed my books.

I was informed, however, that in chapter 14 of Sever the Circle, there is an all caps line between 2 paragraphs that says “Explain/expand more on weird town stuff”. Oops. Somehow an older version of Sever was uploaded to the ebook while the most recent has been used for the paperback.

I am working to get the files changed out and will post when it is corrected. Some devices will live update with the new version whereas others may have to delete and re-download to get the fixed copy.

I do apologize and appreciate any and all patience. I also appreciate, so very much, everyone’s support and enthusiasm for my writings.

Mind the Mirrors


Dreams are but our brains reflecting what they have seen, experienced, and imagined. These images can be distorted, reversed, warped, and deformed into something terrifying. Delve into stories born from nightmares and contorted into journeys dark and fearsome, the corrupt dreams of a darkened mind.
