Untangling Irrational Thoughts

Being irrational is any person’s Achilles heel. Losing all sense of how to logically work through a situation and exploding into a fit of retail therapy, or comfort eating, or having a relationship altering meltdown.

Dear Media: I Am Not A Murderer

We’ve seen it all. The villain with dissociative identity disorder, the sex-crazed bipolar femme fatale, the depressed bomber, the paranoid lone gunman, the schizophrenic baby snatcher…the list goes on. And on. And on. And on. Oh. We have seen it all. Over time there has been a massive outcry for diversity and visibility in today’s…

I Am Not Ashamed

Hello, Internet! I’m Lex Chase! I always start my blog posts like that, don’t I? Perky. Happy. Usually do a few catchy sentences about whatever topic. If it’s Flash Fiction Friday here on my blog or if I’m on a blog tour. But today, I’m not here to sell you anything. Let’s start again. My…

GayRomLit Wrap-Up!

Hello, Internet! Another GayRomLit has come and gone, leaving behind the warring urge to sleep for a month and create all the things at the same time. I regrettably didn’t take enough pictures. I took a lot of Kansas City, not a lot of the con itself. This year, I decided to make the most…

10-9: The Best Story That Never Was

Hello, Internet! Today is a very special personal holiday for me. Over a decade ago I had begun a story called 10-9. The entire plot, like pretty much all of my novels was inspired from a five-minute conversation with a friend. While it had more than a few moving parts, but the premise was a…

Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year, Internet! What a year it’s been. Hella stressful, but mostly good! Here’s a look back on the greatest hits and what you can expect for the coming year. Looking Back In December 2014, I signed on with DSP Publications. It was exciting, yet terrifying all at once. All of my books got postponed…

My Extreme Makeover Anniversary!

Happy Devil’s Night, Internet! Today is a special day for me. As you can see by this lovely dollar that I shamelessly posted in McGuire’s Irish Pub for all eternity, I bid a fond farewell to what used to be my chest. No, I didn’t have breast cancer, and bless those strong ladies! And no,…

Prioritize The Shit Out Of This: A Series

Extreme Makeover Weight–Wait What?

My dad loves reality TV. (Sad I know, but ours is not to judge!) One of them is Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition on ABC. It’s really not a terrible show, maybe a little overly dramatic in some places, but it really can be very motivating to not so tiny people like myself. I’ve written often…
