Earlier this evening my son was looking at my author's copies of my published work, and asked why most of the short stories were under my real name, but some stories and both novels were by Aundrea Singer.

I explained about pen names, and how I started using the pen name for the gay romances I wrote because I was worried our conservative, fundamentalist neighbors wouldn't let their children play with him anymore if they knew about them. I used the example of this dickwad to remind him that this is how a hell of a lot of people think where we live.

My kid shuddered at the memory of the bigoted dickwad, then said, "I have a suggestion. We take your books to that guy, and do this...."

I thought he was going to mime giving the books to him, and was about to explain why it was a sweet idea but wouldn't make any difference.

My kid actually mimed using the books to hit the bigot over the head.

I love my kid.

The paper says "I wrote this". He thought it was hilarious.
Mommy wrote it

Isn't that just wonderful ^_^ You've got an awesome kid, and I love how openly you discuss things with him. I think that's what the world needs more of.

And this was a great reminder to pre-order the book, almost forgot! ^_^ *off to do some shopping*

A huge and very belated thank you for your comment (and compliment) on my child, and for pre-ordering Blood for Magic! I've always tried to be honest and explain the world to him as best I could. It makes me so happy to know he shares my values, especially as they are the right ones. ;)
