Howdy folks, and thanks for stopping by my page. 

My name is Rusty, and I write stuff. Not necessarily good stuff, but stuff nonetheless. Writing's cheaper than therapy, and I reckon there are at least a few folks out there who'll like my stuff, so what the hell, might as well. 

As far as things you ought to know, I'm both a veteran and a queer man. Those aren't too demographics you see smushed together all that often, which is a shame, because the military is gay as hell. There are a lot of queer folk who served, but you don't really hear too much about them. I aim to change that, if only by a little bit. 

My writing tends to feature characters who have been to war and who live with the consequences. A lot of them are some flavor of queer as well. There may also be a bit of trauma dumping involved, but like I said: it's cheaper than therapy. 

If that sounds like fun to you, then by all means, pull up a chair and grab a bucket of popcorn. At the very least, I try not to be boring. 




No books on the bookshelf.

Due to lack of interest, Have Gun, Will Reincarnate will not be continuing past volume 3 on Ritoria. Anyone who wants to see where the story goes from there is more than welcome to check it out on Tapas, but editing and uploading chapters is a fair amount of work, and there’s been next to no traffic these last couple of months. I’m working on several other projects at the moment, and it’s just not worth diverting time and attention away from them right now. My apologies for the inconvenience.

There will be a delay on this week’s Have Gun, Will Reincarnate. I’ve been manually updating each chapter since the system has been screwy, but my computer died and I can’t do that now. Will hopefully have it fixed by next week. Cheers, and happy Thanksgiving.

I think the scheduling problem has been fixed.

I mean Ritoria's chapter scheduling system. And happy thanksgiving!

11/25/2023 14:16

That’s what they say. Either way, I need to get the computer fixed before I can get more episodes uploaded. Looking at probably early next week. Luckily, if the scheduling problem is fixed, I’ve got about a year’s worth of updates that just need to be scheduled.

Your bio made me lol. Also I like your book cover!

So, uh, I'm not dead. Hasn't been much activity on here, so I haven't been checking in all that often. That said, with volume 2 of Have Gun, Will Reincarnate wrapping up in the next few weeks, I figured I'd pop in to say that I'll be uploading volumes 3 and 4 soon. Also, I've got a couple more projects in the works that'll be coming here eventually. Cheers, and thanks for sticking around.

Chapter 13 of Have Gun, Will Reincarnate is live. Still haven't figured out the notification thing, so here we are.

06/09/2023 16:55

Chapters 11 and 12 of Have Gun: Will Reincarnate are available to read. New chapters each Friday.

06/02/2023 20:57

Howdy folks. Since I'm not sure how to make my notifications work yet, I thought it might be prudent to announce that new chapters of Have Gun, Will Reincarnate will drop every Friday morning until either the heat death of the universe, or I run out of chapters. Coin toss which happens first. Cheers.
