I have been struggling financially, as most of us are these days. My spouse lost his job when oil prices dropped and then when the pandemic hit it has been a problem to find anything permanent. He is the primary income earner since I am disabled. I wanted to take some courses and to some side income but it turns out I cannot even sit at the computer desk for very long without my vertigo getting severe- making me unable to utilize those courses for any sort of actual work. It was hard enough to take them and concentrate and I haven’t finished actually. I do most of my writing on my laptop on the couch where I can be more flexible with my position. And a lot of rest, as needed.
So that was- disappointing to say the least that I was limited to that extent I couldn’t even function on a basic level to do minimal side income from home. I found that a bit sad really that my functionality is still so very compromised. I know it is. I know it every damn time I try to do anything during the day so it shouldn’t have been a surprise and yet… it sort of was. I just need to lay down a Lot. Still.
So I am trying other options. Obviously, I believe I will be looking at financial complications for the foreseeable future. So every penny counts. I will be looking at every and all solutions. And I thought I will show you guys some ways you can support my blog, if you desire to, in various ways that may also be cool for you too.

I have started an Etsy store for my art. I only have the two prints in there right now but when I can get out of the house I will be getting more available. Not much stock because I have no idea how they will sell and I am testing the waters as it were. But I do have these ones in there right now… and check back for more soon for some recent watercolours prints I have done.
Are products I represent and if you purchase them I get a a commission from that.
Allay Lamp as a referral code for anyone you buys one and for that you get 25 dollars off and I get 25 dollars for the referral. Now this is a product I really stand behind. You can see my review here.
My spouse loves paint by numbers. Especially since he got laid off. It helps with his anxiety and gives him something to focus on. For me it is a pain distraction but I do not do them as much as he loves them since I got into art therapy. This is his art therapy.

“Thoroughly enjoyed reading this it summed up how it is to live with chronic pain – and with humour! Also made me laugh especially at Fibro fog-Head. It’s not the pain that’s funny the authors attitude is so upfront and direct and explains fibromyalgia so well. I may read it again…”Amazon Review
My Fantasy fiction books under my pen-name
Recent series starts with Lost Magic
Fifty years ago the Alignment between our universe and the Realm started. With it, an influx of Universal Energy which powered up the Earth’s ley lines and people who are sensitive to it became wizards, witches, or psychics. When the Alignment hit translucent spirit entities also crossed over creating all sorts of creatures. However, hidden in society also exists sorcerers who exist whether our world is in an Alignment or not.
Irelynne is a sorcerer monitoring the city of Coldbrooke. Placed to watch wizards and for other entities that may be a negative influence. She agrees to help a vampire help with the murder cases of a few witches and one wizard. She comes across a crime she had not expected while trying to find the murderer and the method of death. A problem that her clan could eradicate by slaughtering everyone involved if she cannot find a way to resolve the situation.
In a world where witches, Wizards, and vampires have all been integrated (though painfully) into modern society, Irelynne – a sorcerer – must hide her unusual magic while investigating a series of murders that only she will be able to solve.
Ire is funny, relatable, and very competent. Zoro is hilarious.
There were fresh takes on common tropes, but with a sense of modernity and respect that can sometimes be lacking in fantasy.
I look forward to the next book.Amazon review
I have a zazzle store I have been playing around with. I might play around with it more and add more items.
