Welcome to the fondue party, everyone.
This afternoon, I feel moved to share the first reviews Rascal: A Manifesto has gotten over on Amazon.
Laugh, cry, get angry, and fall in love with Logospilgrim
By Mike A Klotz on on December 6, 2017
This is the second book I have read from this author. She is raw, powerful and emotional. This book truly is a manifesto. Which anyone might use as affirmations and encouragement to break away from whatever chains may shackle you. It’s not what you expect but it is probably what most of us need. I challenge you to read this book and not be moved into looking closely at your own personal demons.
Permission granted to be yourself
By Michael Sieber on December 9, 2017
I’ve read several books by this author, all of which I enjoyed, but Rascal is special because it’s a powerful, simple and direct message that encourages people to embrace who they are and to not let themselves be controlled or ruled by those with small minds and prejudices. If you’ve ever been told to stop being you, this book is your permission slip to vigorously and unapologetically decline and embrace that which makes you unique. If society deems you to be an oddball, this book is for you.
Brazen and unashamedly brilliant.

“Rascal: A Manifesto” is the perfect title to this book. It is the sun’s rays spotlighting Vampiric abusers of this world and beyond. Showing them for their true horrific and manipulative selves that they are. And they cannot hope to hide from her wrath as she has her phoenix moment of clarity and freedom. Logospilgrim has fast become a favorite artist of mine and I highly recommend her to anyone who has even the faintest glimmer of hope to finding the path to loving oneself.

An unabashed proclamation of humanity and all that goes with it. Logospilgrim asserts her self against those that would seek to take that away. This book is a call to unapologetically be the person you always wanted to be.

Manifesto indeed. Direct and full of heart, this book forces the reader to consider what it means to value oneself in a sea of those who squelch personal fulfillment and happiness.
These words mean a whole fucking hell of a lot. I am extremely grateful to all who have begun sharing their enthusiastic thoughts about the book on Amazon, and thereby helped me get the book out there. Others have ordered a copy and tweeted, “I can’t wait to read it!!”
This is the best gift you can give an author. Especially an independent author.
It makes a real difference.
I got myself some celebratory t-shirts today. Here’s one:
I believe that Rascal CAN be my first book to get over 50 Amazon reviews. This would be… phenomenal. Nothing could describe the exhilaration I’ll feel when this happens.
Even a sentence is enough. ONE SENTENCE.
Do we want a world with bold, original, indomitable voices? If so, strong, unconventional independent voices must be celebrated.
I’ve worked for a long time, I have fought to break the barriers that would have contained me and ultimately couldn’t, and my voice is worth being celebrated. I start by celebrating it myself.
I’ll continue to write, and be what I’m not “supposed” to be, and encourage bold, like-minded individuals to live their power. I will dare, and dare, and dare.
If you’re among those who were born to be bold, don’t dream it, BE IT.
I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’m so glad I’ve reached this point in my life. I’ve forcefully rejected anything that would deny me my identity and individuality. I have wrenched myself from the illegitimate clutches of those who fear self-emancipators and free-thinkers: we devils. I rejected oppressive notions more and more with each step forward, with each snapping bond, with my increasing awareness of the forces that shaped my mind—and I used all of this to claim my life. And as I fought and made progress, my circumstances themselves changed, which facilitated yet more beneficial transformations that brought me back to my glorious, vital, rascal self.
I’ve taken the hand I was dealt and learned to use it to my full advantage, thus making the very best of my own existence in all of its aspects. I have learned to be a magician. I’ve turned problems into gifts; I’ve turned impediments into opportunities. My gold, I’ve polished to a blazing shine.
And this is why, as I write in Rascal, I am mine.
