“I’m serious about wanting to create a recurring reading experience; it’s not about money.

Chris Allen

“If you hope to make a living doing stand-up, work clean. Corporate events and cruises, where the decent money is for stand-up comedy, won’t tolerate blue material. There’s no choice, if you want to work.”
Gabe Abelson

“Write what’s inside you. Write what you love. Don’t try to predict what readers want, that’s impossible. Write for yourself. Readers will find your work.”
