(Subject to change at any time and at my whim. 😉 )

Q: Do you really expect anyone to be able to pronounce your last name?

A: Yes, actually, I do. It’s not really that hard. Since it’s from German, the letter combination “ei” is pronounced “i”. So you would say “Shy-rer.” See? Easy!

Q: Are you on social media?

A: Nope.

Q: Why not?

A: Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Okay, I didn’t say this first, but with all the ways of connecting with people anymore, studies are showing that we’re actually growing farther apart. I don’t want to lose that sense of contact with people.

If you would like to send me a message, please feel free to visit my Contact page. Due to everything I have going on in my life, please don’t get upset if I don’t respond right away.

Q: You sure you don’t have any plans to join social media?

A: Not in the near future, at least. If things change, the website will reflect that.

Q: Why don’t you update on a regular schedule?

A: Creativity doesn’t always strike me on a regular basis. I would rather you have something I really thought about than something I just pulled out of my ass because I had a deadline to keep. It’s that whole quality over quantity thing.

Q: Why don’t you post your book reviews here?

A: One: I’m lazy. I generate all my reviews on GoodReads, and while yes, I copy and paste to Amazon, do I really want to go through the effort of doing it one more time here? No. Two: I want you to be able to decide whether or not you really want to read the review before I try to shove it down your throat. If I post it, you’ll more than likely feel obligated to read it. This way, you can decide if it’s your cup of tea or not. Three: Just about everyone who has a blog posts the entirety of their review front and center. I wanted to be different.  So there.  Nyah. 😛

Q: You call that a knife?

A: *pulls out a bigger knife* Now that’s a knife.

Q: Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

A: Oh. The uniform. I’m Luke Skywalker, and I’m here to rescue you.

Q: Are you done with the movie quotes?

A: Eh, I think I may have a few more of them in me… 😉
