Announcement   A feast for the eyes and mind! Feel free to poke around, read a few odd stories and ask questions if you so desire. We're here for your entertainment.

To answer an oft heard inquiry from the usual suspects: Where are the books, Moron? Fear not, Readers. I am in the midst of a slight shop overhaul, where the focus (bad pun intended) has shifted towards photography & raising money for various animal charities. We love critters of all shapes, sizes, genus & species... and I know that you do, too. So please check out our Stamp Out Animal Cruelty photo series (Shop Section: Art for Charity) and help to support local & national organizations that care for those that cannot speak for themselves.

All of the post-production proceeds from sales of Art for Charity photographs go directly to said causes, and you'll get two things for ten dollars: that warm & fuzzy feeling from helping others, as well as a pretty sweet photograph that you & future generations can enjoy for many decades to come. Yep - they're high quality prints, and I can tinker with custom sizes and/or personalized details. You ask, I do. The best part? Buy just one item from thereink and you'll earn a lifetime 10% discount on any future item(s) in either of my stores. Who does that & why? Me... because I already like you, friend.

So let's do the math:

Nifty stuff + very reasonable (dare I say cheap) pricing + charitable contributions to great causes + a permanent discount on future purchases = You gotta buy something right now

Books will return to thereink very soon, and more unusual items are available through our other Etsy store - Tex Metroplex. Thanks for looking, please be kind to animals, and have a beautiful day.

Welcome to our little shop of horrors... er... books and other printed material. We're now officially open for your pleasure and purchase.

A bit of history for you: thereink was supposed to be the name of an independent publishing company, based somewhere along the sleepy coastline of Baja Mexico. The original mind blowing idea was conceived waaay back during the Summer of '95, while two good friends were driving a well beaten 1981 Audi 4000 southbound along Highway 1 in Northern California. The vehicle's brakes gave out on a particularly treacherous curve just north of Big Sur, causing a fantastic split second, death defying reaction by the driver (me). As our lives flashed before us, I realized that I had not yet fulfilled my lifelong dream of being published in paperback. I was twenty-five, red eyed and bushy haired, and the world just had to know what it was that I was thinking while under the influence of whiskey, women and whim.

The concept was rather simple: Ink would take you There, as in the written word could transport a reader from Point A to wherever the story evolved. We would set up the publishing works in an abandoned, sand flea infested motel somewhere just steps from the Pacific, invite other unpublished writers to stay for a while / help assemble the books, and life would be perfect. The idea was kicked around for a few months... and then unemployment and eviction came about, all of the girls and liquor magically disappeared, and before long everything was different and thereink was just an oh yeah type memory.

The ink that once flowed from my arsenal of blue fine tip Papermate ballpoint pens dried up about six years ago, and now all that remains are thousands of pages of mostly illegible, somewhat poetic scribbles and a few tired stories. Thereink did become the name of a very short-lived writing internet venture (long before blogs were all the rage), however the site is now in limbo (http://www.thereink.com, if you're really reading this / are entirely bored). I learned about Etsy a while ago, had a much less creative epiphany, and so the name will be dusted off for a third go round as a vintage book and paper goods market for kind folks like yourself. Hooray for you.

Please take your time in perusing our titles and various items of interest. Feel free to drop a line to pose questions, ask for advice about life, or to share any stories of your own. I may not write these days, but I still love a good - or even bad - tale. Perhaps you'll be the inspiration for me to pick up the pen again.

Thanks for stopping by... and have a beautiful day.
