My “Essence”

Dear Diary,

Have you ever wondered why I write these entries every day? Or what makes me sit here and spend a good half hour pouring myself into an entry and then publishing it for the world to see? Have you? Well, the answer is really simple:

These words are my essence, and I want to use them to connect with you. All of you. I want you to be able to see the kinds of things that are going on in my mind, to understand what makes me tick. The next question you probably have is: but why, my dark demonic princess? Why would you want that? What do you have to gain?

The answer to that is also simple: friendship. The more I open up to you, the more you open up to me, and because of that, I’ve developed a lot of relationships that I treasure. It’s symbiotic, rewarding, and a lot of fun.

Yes, getting to know some of you has undoubtedly lead to increased book sales and Patreon subscribers, but those things are secondary – for the first half of my career I didn’t even use social media, and my sales were just fine. Of course, since I started my social media initiative they have skyrocketed, but that was a bit of an unexpected side-effect. I started reaching out because I wanted to get to know my readers, and other authors to boot.

And this is only the beginning.

So hang in there with me, dear loves. The best is yet to come…



“I wake up every morning, look in the mirror and ask, ‘Am I a sex symbol?’ Then I go back to bed again. It’s stupid to think that way.”

    I’m glad that I can give you more than friendship right back at you, Alexa. 😊💙💙😘

    P.S. I’m enjoying Patreon so far and I haven’t got around on reading your Patreon-only stuff much yet! 😉

      I’m glad you’re enjoying it! It’s only going to get better. 🤗

    Your friendship means more to me than words can discribe. So joining Patreon as a VIP for you was a no brainer I didn’t do it for the perks although they are great. Have a great day demonic princess

    This diary entry subconsciously made me think about your delicious essence while reading it from start to finish in its lexical meaning.

      Well, I’m glad I could do that for you! 😅
