DeviantART has made a big difference in my life. It was the launching pad for my involvement in the creative world. I'll especially miss :iconKingOvRats: and :iconChaosfive-55:, without whom I would be a different person.

Autumn Cthulhu is a new fiction anthology featuring original tales of Lovecraftian horror set in the fall, published by Lovecraft eZine Press!
