i'm back. with a vengeance.
it's dawned on me that, when i do publish, people will be scribbling my words on their binders and notebooks anyways, so someone stealing my work now is not so bad.
to everyone who's left me on their author alert list; review this to let me know if you're still interested in my newer (and better) works and i will send you the link to the new account when i've created it.

thanks everyone.
