Hello, Potentially Faithful Reader!

A cool present from my sister.

A very nice present from my sister.

Hey! I have some new releases out! My third novel, a story collection, and some of the stories themselves! Plus some other stories from that other collection!

Oh. You don’t necessarily recognize me. Well, I’m David Haywood Young, a writer who kind of hopes you meant to get to this page. But even if you didn’t? Stick around for a bit. We can try each other out, see how it goes, hold off on the juicy bits until the second date…

Oh. Went right off the reservation again, didn’t I? Hmm. And didn’t even warn you it might happen.

Well, now you know something about me: I open my mouth and get myself into trouble. Generally I do it just for fun. A bad habit, I know.

After you look around…maybe you can tell me something about yourself too? See, there are plenty of writers who have thousands upon thousands of readers. They can’t respond to individuals. But I’m not one of those. Not sure I even want to be, actually. It sounds sort of lonely. We don’t do lonely around here if we can help it.

That said…I’m an indie, which means I do it all myself (or hire it done). So whatever you find here, it’s my fault. Ditto for the books and stories.

Is my stuff any good? Opinions will vary. Waist sizes too, but I’m not pointing any fingers. Er…what I mean is, so far the reviewers (mostly at Amazon) have been kind, and I’ve dedicated myself to this effort full-time to see where it goes. Always wanted to, and now I can. I promise to do my best. It’s my third “career,” you see (the others having been software and professional poker), and I figure I need to put time and effort into it. Sort of an apprenticeship, only to an ideal rather than a person.

Ideally? You’ll find a book or story you’d like to read. Or maybe you’ll just come along and enjoy the journey with me. It really doesn’t work without you.

There are descriptions of books and stories, but most of this site’s content is in my blog. If you came here via some accursed device that makes the site navigation difficult (not naming any names, Kindle Paperwhite!) you can use the links below to get around:

Thanks for coming by!
