Join us as Brandon Witt goes Outside the Margins.
There are a million things I thought I might write about this month, but they all got pushed aside. This month, February, the month of ‘Love,’ is nothing more or less than a Thank You letter. To you, all of you.
In a few months, less than four now, I will be jobless, at least for all practical purposes. Historically, my books have made ALMOST one hundred dollars a month. Enough to nearly pay the car insurance. Not enough to cover for what I pay out for certain book publicity. So, you can see why I felt it was high time to make the leap to writing fulltime.
On the verge of this adventure, leap of faith, living the dream… insanity… the royalty check for the last three months of 2014 came in. I did a double and then triple take at the dollar amount. Then made certain it was really my name on payee line (surely it had gotten sent to the wrong author). Then looked to make sure someone else’s backlog hadn’t accidentally gotten onto my statement.
Unless I get a call from my publisher saying they hired a new account who has math skills akin to my own, it all appears on the up and up.
Don’t get me wrong, the amount wouldn’t scream to a sane person that it was time to quit their day job. (Sane people. Booooooorrrrrrring.) However, it was enough to make me have hope that maybe one day, this leap of faith might actually prove less crazy and suicidal than it feels.
So, thank you. To every one of you who has given my writing a try, whether you loved or detested it. To those of you who were so friendly at GRL and made me feel like a writer. To all of you who showed your love for Dunkyn and made me feel part of this family. To all of you who are so fucked up that you enjoy The Witty Hour (seriously, get some help). To those of you who will give my writing a try in the future. And to those writers, publishers, bloggers, and artists who have paved the way in the MM world and made a space for me.
Truly! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
