Due to the murder of my family and the resulting court cases, police investigations, and FBI investigations, I no longer have time to daily update this website.

Likewise ALL novel, short story, and article writing projects are on hiatus.

All book releases, book signings, workshops, and convention appearances for 2015 (and unknown amount of time after) are on hold while the murder investigation of my family is ongoing.

Writing advice for the worldbuilding, character creation, and other writing how to articles are on hold.

From now on, the bulk of updates here will be about the investigation into the murder of my family.

No, NOT just THIS author website, not JUST the EelKat pename, not just self published books: ALL 15 (fifteen) of my penames are on hiatus, that includes traditional published books as well, newspaper reporting jobs, editing jobs, my work for Harlequin Romance Novels, my work for Disney... EVERYTHING is on hiatus. Every publishing house I work for, every series I write, every penname I write under: they are ALL on hiatus, ALL projects.

There is NOTHING being published under ANY penname, not for ANY series, not for ANY publisher, from 2015 onward. EVERYTHING is on hold due to the murder of my family. I do not know when or even if, any of the projects will be restarted or finished.

Yes, BOTH the magazines I owned are indefinitely shut down because of this as well, with no plans for either magazine to return. The publishing house I own is also closed to submissions from now on, we will no longer be publishing anything. It is unlikely we will reopen the publishing house either.

All book signing tours, workshops, letures, PAX events, ComicCon events, carnival/festival/state fair/car show events are also canceled. I will not be attending ANY of them. If a venue still has my name listed as a guest/speaker/etc it is because they've not yet removed it. I WILL NOT be there, no matter where it is! 


The ONLY thing continuing from this point on, is THIS website, where I'll post updates on the murder investigation, hopefully every week, but, you know how it is when 10 members of your family are beheaded, it's kind of difficult to have a schedule for anything anymore.

My Amazon Sales

A question I am constantly receiving, but rarely answering is:

"How do you make money off your website?"

I make money in multiple ways. Sales of my books off LuLu, Amazon, CreateSpace, and Kindle is of course one way, as is sales of my art off Zazzle and CafePress, along with sales of my dolls and quilts off Etsy, and finally sales of my card readings off Keen and Etsy.These are all sales of products made by me and mailed out directly to customers.

Google AdSense is another way. Many (though not all) of the external links you will find on this site are affiliate links from: Amazon, AllPosters, Click-Bank, Commision-Junction, Link-Share, Share-A-Sale, and Zazzle. These places pay me a percentage of the sale, when you buy an item off of their website.

One of my biggest money makers is Amazon. I thought it would be interesting to see what it was that people buy, when they visit my website, and click on an Amazon link. I found it fascinating to see what people buy, because rarely do they buy the item they clicked on, and most of the items bought are things I never heard of and never would have thought of promoting!

That is what this page is all about. Here you go, a sample of things people bought off Amazon after visiting my website. As you read these, keep in mind that this is a website for authors, writers, editors, and publishers, which promotes items for writers, and yet, here are the things people end up buying instead!
