Where could I find a list of your work? I'd be very interested in having a look.

I wrote for an informational book series in which I profiled beer styles, described the differences in beer glasses, and reviewed beer of the month clubs. The book is called the Buzz on Beer and the publisher is out of business. You may be able to find the book Online.

I also wrote a sci-fi novel which is available in ebook format only. I get a five dollar check every three years or so for that one. It's called Synthetic Blood and Mixed Emotions.

I also wrote for a local newsletter company. And I published a short western story in an online anthology.

My mystery novels are currently unpublished, but a short story featuring the detective is available at overlordstory.blogspot.com

Read it. Liked it. Recommend it!

I assume you'll let us know when we can get a hold of the novels?

I'm currently doing research for a satirical re-write of everyone's favorite book.

RE: Writers?
I write whenever I get a new idea, but i generally write a chapter and then get bored. My problem is that i get good foundation ideas, but then I get extremely bored with the idea once i start writing it out.

I once started a couple of chapters for this strange idea i had, you can find it here: http://s1.zetaboards.com/Naruto_Saigen_R...853/1/#new

I'm currently considering an idea that bounced into my head. I'm not sure if i'd try to make it serious or make it an obvious satire, but i'm considering writing about a different world that follows certain doctrines and has certain customs and believes certain things etc. etc. Basically creating a world that operates as if it were run by religion instead of government and pointing out some ridiculous aspects of religion (mainly christianity) in the process. Which has probably been done before, but eh.

RE: Writers?
I've tried my hand at writing but I was never satisfied with what I came up with and I haven't tried to write any kind of fiction in a long time.

Right now I'm trying to write a wedding ceremony for a wedding I'm performing in September for my friends and I'm hitting a writers block on this one part of the ceremony. I don't know if this really counts though.

RE: Writers?
I'm a bit of a wannabe poet Tongue I've written hundreds of poems, but most of them are utter crap. I haven't written much in the past couple of years though, 'cause I just haven't had the time/motivation/inspiration. I've only published one poem, which was in a university literary magazine that I can't remember the name of at the moment. I've also tried to start numerous stories, but I've never gotten around to writing much more than rough character and plot outlines.

However, I have written a lot of literary analysis for my English Lit. classes. Does that count? Wink

I have two self-published books out that are over achieving. I have a short story coming out at the end of the month with a publisher and I'm working on a novel/series expansion of that short. It's about a priest who loses his faith in a hellhole of a city and becomes a vigilante.

I really hope you enjoy it. It's riddled with typos. Sorry about that.

We need a little more than that if we're going to buy them.

RE: Writers?
I didn't want to come off like a spammer. I haven't posted much. I just lurk a lot.

My first two books are adult comedies. Mr. Undesirable is about a guy who wins the lottery and sets out for revenge:

Lenny Kapowski is a dirt poor, foul mouthed, porn addicted, binge drinking, malcontent. Life has spent fifteen solid years of kicking him when he was down and he has never done anything to change his lot. But, in one lucky moment, Lenny wins a giant lottery jackpot, and he finally sees the path to his redemption. For Lenny, redemption comes in the form of revenge on the man he blames for his life’s woes, Dr. Wayne Stevens.

In high school, Lenny was to take the doctor’s daughter to the Senior Prom, but at the last second her father put a stop to that idea. At a pre-Prom gathering in the exclusive planned community of Rambling Hills, Dr. Stevens forbade Lenny from taking his daughter to the Prom and humiliated the young man in front of his classmates and their parents. The doctor simply would not have his only daughter associating with such-- undesirables.

Now pushing thirty, Lenny is a very rich man. Still, after a life with no focus or drive, what good is all that money? Lenny’s only goal is to reap his vengeance on Dr. Stevens and the residents of the snobbish Rambling Hills Community. Along with his best friend, Norm Grubnik, and his attorney/terrorist, Calvin Greenlee, Lenny sets out on a plan to topple the doctor’s ivory tower. Lenny will be the vicarious champion for the downtrodden. The elitist’s worst nightmare. White trash with cash. Lenny will be the worst thing they could ever imagine.

He will be their neighbor.


The current book I'm promoting is called Picking On Retards:

We are most shaped by the things that we are ashamed of.

Ronald “Butcher” Blake is The Man when it comes to high school football in 1988. With the other heroes of the undefeated Mims High School Mustangs he is one of the elite. The untouchable. That is until he takes it upon himself, while showing off for his teammates, to assault and frighten a mentally disabled boy in the hallway at school. Letting the punishment fit the crime, the principal and his coach devise an ingenious way of teaching Butcher a lesson. He won’t be suspended from school or kicked off the team, provided he agrees to one stipulation.

Butcher Blake will be the new bodyguard for the boy, Ethan Miles.

The rest of the Mustangs, however, don’t like losing their partner in crime to “some retard” and they do all they can to make life even harder on Butcher and his new charge. Led by Derek Skyler and his personal Goon Squad, the remaining members of the team, and even Butcher’s girlfriend, launch an effort to wreck the new arrangement.

No longer elite and no longer untouchable, Butcher begins to see that there is more to life than just football. A realization that he fights every step of the way.

Picking On Retards is a novel about the hardest lessons we learn. The ones about ourselves.
