Most of you probably made your way here via my most-read articles,
Capitalism Has Failed, and Jay-Z’s Streaming Scandal Is Proof and The Difficulty in Defining Donald Glover’s “This is America.” These were among the first pieces I wrote, and I was lucky enough to have Medium’s editors select them to be Member Feature Stories. My collection of my favorite essays, Disposable People, Disposable Planet is available to pre-order on Amazon.
Most of my work will be behind the paywall. I think people should be paid for their work, and Medium has provided an efficient way for me to make a few extra dollars without having to pitch every idea I have. Thanks so much to those of you who are members for putting your five bucks a month into the pool!
And thanks so much to those of you who made the choice to follow me!
I enjoy interacting with my readers, but Medium posts each comment as a new story, so every comment I make pushes my articles down the list of my work under my profile and out of recommendations. This makes it less likely that readers will find my other articles. Unfortunately, this means I won’t be commenting as often as I’d like to. As a way around this, I’ve created a weekly feature, “Kitanya Responds to Comments” where I react to my readers’ responses to my stories.
Medium makes big changes without giving writers much notice, so I’d like to have a way to keep in touch with my readers if I have to switch platforms on short notice. I have a newsletter, where I discuss my story ideas and projects. If you’d like to subcribe, you can sign up below.
I spend a lot of time on Twitter (@kitanyaharrison), so that’s a great place to connect with me, if you’d like to.
I also write fiction under the pseudonym, Harrison Kitteridge. Here’s the book trailer for my debut novel, Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Paper Journal.
You can purchase the book here.
I’ve also written a prequel called Before Holmes Met Watson, and you can read an extended sample on Medium:
Before Holmes Met Watson (a novel) — Prologue
Sherlock Holmes was a thing of the shadows. He was also the bearer of the light that drove out the darkness. Living out…
Thanks for reading, and I hope to keep producing work you enjoy!
