ReadTomLucas Closed for Business. I’VE MOVED TO ROOM1331.COM!

Hello to my readers, friends, family, and those folks who only came to this site after Googling “Why Goodreads Sucks.”

When I first set up my blog in the spring of 2012, it was mainly for escape. I was languishing away in a depressing job — but it did motivate me to revisit my writings and bring me back to creating over consuming.

Since then, much has happened. I’ve seen some success and documented much of my journey here. Many of you have followed and in return, I have followed you. I’ve met so many people IRL and in the digital realm. So many cool, cool people.

I’ve also only gotten busier with every year that passes and there is happily no end in sight…but a side-effect of that has been leaving my blog to gather too much dust. A big part of it was that I had so much content — over 300 posts and too many links, images, tags, topics to manage.

As I get older, I appreciate simplicity more and more. And it’s in the spirit of simplicity that I am no longer going to post here, but rather to my new, cleaner, stripped-down site: room1331.com.

If you followed ReadTomLucas, I am so very grateful and I do hope that you will move with me to the new digs. I’ll be keeping my posting down to only updates, news, and fresh written works.

Hope to see you there!


A Thank You to my Readers.

Just a quick note…

Some of you may know that I recently had back surgery. I have spent the last month at home and I am just now getting back to work. It’s been more of a struggle to keep my head straight than I thought it would be. In fact, many days of late I feel lost in the woods.

A while back I was taught that when I was living in a bad headspace, one thing I could do was to make a gratitude list — things in my life for which I was grateful to have. I’m keeping most of that list to myself, except one thing.

I am grateful for my readers. And lately, I’ve been getting a lot of visitors here and I am not entirely sure why. But it puts a big sloppy grin on my face so I will take it.

For anyone who has ever taken a minute to read one of my posts, poems, or whatevers AND/OR those who have taken the time to listen to my podcasts or interviews AND/OR to those who have read and/or reviewed my books…here’s an owl.


You are the fuel that keeps me going. THANKS!
