I Have Gone Crazy

I’ve ordered business cards. It’s all uphill from here, folks.

(Why did I do this, you might ask? Because of posts like this [S.W. Vaughn] and this [Inky Fresh Press] and this [Maria Schneider] and a dozen other articles spanning the course of several years, including agents’ recollections: they remember you better if you have a business card. They like you better if you have a business card. It proves you have some business sense, and are willing to market yourself.)

(And making this purchase is one of those Big Steps I’m taking toward Doing This As a Professional. Watch out, world.)

Ruthanne Reid is one of those pesky fanfiction authors who made good, and thus eschews most labels. Except for being a Generation X-er (or maybe Xennial, according to some guy’s webpage), a musician who loves music but also carries a ton of baggage about it, a self-taught graphic artist who designs her own covers, a spoonie who wrestles Fibromyalgia not unlike yon Hercules and the Nemean lion, a Christian who hesitates to use the word because too many of them are crazy but Jesus is pretty great, a rabid shipper who’s too smart to lay out precisely which ships because of the wars, and an avid reader when she isn’t busy caretaking for some pretty ill folks.

You know. Unlabelable.

Currently a resident of Long Island City and a loving mommy to one current cat and numerous future ones, Ruthanne is happily married to a fellow geek who loves good stories and great games as much as she does. Between the two of them, they own a lot of things that need to be plugged in.

Love the cards. I had a business designing marketing pieces, including business cards, and these are gorgeous. Well done! I also love the new blog layout – crisp, clean, and easy to read. Good for you, girlfriend!
