Coming Out, Closing Down, and Writing a Book

July 27, 2013

I started this blog with the intention of developing my voice until I had enough content and enough followers to write a book. I’ve maintained as much anonymity here as possible so that I could write openly and tell my stories without fear of exposing people close to me. Only a few people who know me personally have known the location of this blog. Over time, as I let myself be more and more vulnerable here, I wondered if I would ever reveal who I really was.

I’m going to now, because the book project is happening sooner than I expected, and I would like to invite you to follow it.

A year ago, I met and fell in love with poly writer Franklin Veaux. That relationship has blossomed into an amazing creative partnership, through which we’ve revived his long-dormant vision of writing a book on polyamory and merged it with my own.

The book project is called More Than Two, after his website, and we’re blogging about it at the new More Than Two book blog. We’ll be launching a crowdfunding campaign in August, and you can sign up at the blog to be notified when it launches.

My real name, photo, and bio are there. I considered leaving this blog up, even linking back to it from More Than Two. In the end, I decided against it, mainly because there are people I’ve written about here whose privacy I want to protect. So in coming out publicly on More Than Two, I am also locking down the old posts on this blog. You may see some of them reappear, in some form, in the book. This, my 50th post on this blog, will also be my last one here.

My little handful of followers here are more or less the only people on the Web who have more than a passing familiarity with my writing, or any familiarity at all with my writings on polyamory. I have fewer followers–by several orders of magnitude–than Franklin, and that makes each one of you incredibly important to me. I hope you will continue to follow me at More Than Two.

The chapter of my life documented on this blog is coming to a close. Thank you for sharing it with me.

    I have no recollection of when I found your blog or how I found it, but there this post was in my RSS reader today. I just skimmed through a few of your old entries that are still up, and I am really looking forward to seeing this book that you two are working on! You’re both great writers, and you have valuable knowledge and insight to share. Franklin’s More Than Two website is my favorite poly resource to recommend to people, and it’s going to be wonderful having a book to recommend as well!

      Thank you! But I’m wondering which of my posts are still up? I locked all of them as private, and when I visit the site when not signed in, I can’t see any of them.

        huh, it’s probably a quirk of my RSS reader (feedly)? There’s ten posts old posts that still show up, but if I click on the posts to try to view them as a webpage, then I can’t see them anymore and I get a 404 error. I’ve had this happen before when I used Google Reader, and sometimes posts that someone had published but then deleted would show up for me. I never checked back to see if they later disappeared from Reader as well.

        Ah, cool. I thought it might be something like that.
