On Writing, Thoughts

New year, new focus

Hello dear readers,

First off, thanks for following Sitting in Spilt Ink. I started this blog some time in 2012 with no real focus or goal in mind. There have been times when I don’t post an update for months, yet Sitting in Spilt Ink rarely looses followers. So, thanks for sticking around, and I promise this year will be better.

There are a few things I’m excited to begin work on this year. One (which I’ve already begun) is the Emerging Revolutionary War book series. I’m the managing editor of the series, which is composed of entry-level, 192-page books on battles, people, and important events during the war. I design (and sometimes edit) books for the Emerging Civil War series, so if history is your thing, please check them out. Emerging Civil War will also have a book on Civil War pop culture coming out in 2017 (if I’m not mistaken), in which I’ve written two chapters. But I’ll post that when it comes time.

Behind Bars Photo Series

Hey there!

So I’m going to be doing a photo series of animals from the Berlin zoo that are all behind bars. I don’t necessarily love zoos because I know that a lot of animal mistreatment can happen (not necessarily in the Berlin zoo, but in many zoos and especially circuses), and I believe that most of these animals belong in the wild.

Each photo will just be named “Behind Bars” with a ┬ároman numeral next to it to indicate the number photo I’m on.

The series starts today!




It’s a little early but…


Ya know how there’s no such thing as cold, it’s just lack of heat? Maybe there’s no such thing as hate, just lack of love.



Who’s there?
