EBOOK PRICING-Sticky Post. Below is current blog posts!


All else being equal, most people agree that the longer a story is, the more you’re allowed to charge for it. A good barometer for all of this is a simple word count list (I borrowed and adapted this list from the Kindle forums): Flash Fiction – <1,000 words Short Short – 1,000 – 5,000 … Continue reading EBOOK PRICING-Sticky Post.

Men’s Fashion: Spring Greens


We made it through the winter, some areas worse than others and still going through snow and ice. Here in the Pacific Northwest Island of San Juan, we have Spring. March-April spring is getting greener, with trees, flowers and bushes, so the color I give this first four weeks is a bright green. My first … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: Spring Greens

Happy 52nd Birthday to Me


Today is my 52nd Birthday! The second in this pandemic quarantine, which isn't much different from the past 18 years or so living with a kidney transplant. But I'm grateful to have lived so long! The past year (past four years, really) I've been spoiling myself, after paying off bills I was left with after … Continue reading Happy 52nd Birthday to Me

Men’s Fashion: March Navy Bags


March's post is late due to awaiting shipment for two of the bags. I chose Navy as March's color for the end of winter. Navy is such rich color, apropos for the end of the cold season and an introduction to Spring. Navy is an all season color, goes with any outfit or occasion, a … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: March Navy Bags

Men’s Fashion: February Rich Grays


February's color, as you can see here, is a rich gray. In fact, 2021's official colors are Gray and Yellow! I have here (along with a cross section of my life on/around the ottoman, different colors of gray. Showing are 9 bags/clutches/wallets. You can see the reverse side of the calvin klein color block gray … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: February Rich Grays

Men’s Fashion: January Mix & Match


We're in the beginning of Winter, which typically means dark overhead skies, rain, snow, sleet and slush. There isn't much sunshine or bright colors, which brings us to wearing or carrying brighter colors. Winter colors are usually dark grays, browns, blacks or richer gemstone colors. For January I've mentioned the colors are Dark Green, like … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: January Mix & Match

Men’s Fashion: January Dark Greens


I wasn't going to continue the Men's Fashion articles in 2021, because none of the Men's Fashion Bags articles took off in 2020. Very few comments, likes or shares across 'social' media. But, since I enjoy bags, clutches, totes and wallets and I'm still buying new (to me) bags, I'm going to continue to write … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: January Dark Greens

Happy New Year 2021


We all made it through 2020, congratulate yourselves! Personally, 2020 was one big, giant, humungous Major Depressive Episode. Others with Major Depressive Disorder will understand. But here on January 1, 2021, with Politics looking better with an incoming President and Vice-President who know what they're doing, life will start looking better, eventually. I made it … Continue reading Happy New Year 2021

Men’s Fashion: Three Compartment Totes


Two different versions of the Three Compartment Tote, on the left a black and white classic from Calvin Klein and on the right, a dark navy blue from Piel Leather. Both were bought on drastically reduced prices on Amazon and Amazon Warehouse. Love the classic look of this black and white tote, reminds me of … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: Three Compartment Totes

Men’s Fashion: Calvin Klein Sets


Earlier in 2020 I started buying Calvin Klein Sonoma Totes, the North-South Reversible version. I waited until they went on sale, on various sites, usually around $60. I first bought the Aubergine (covered on this website), then the Lavender. When looking for the Lavender, one seller on Poshmark sent me the bright pink, above, instead. … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: Calvin Klein Sets

Men’s Fashion: Double Handle Cargo Totes


Want to know what I love about these cargo totes? No center divider! How fantastic! Those center dividers are either so limp and sloppy they just get in the way. Others are so stiff you almost are unable to fit anything inside. I use smaller clutches and bags so items aren't swimming and diving at … Continue reading Men’s Fashion: Double Handle Cargo Totes
