    Endless Joke
    by David Antrobus

    Here's that writers' manual you were reaching and scrambling for. You know the one: filled with juicy writing tidbits and dripping with pop cultural snark and smartassery. Ew. Not an attractive look. But effective. And by the end, you'll either want to kiss me or kill me. With extreme prejudice. Go on. You know you want to.

    Please click on the above thumbnail to buy my short, intense nonfiction book featuring 9/11 and trauma. It's less than the price of a cup of coffee... and contains fewer calories. Although, unlike most caffeine boosts, it might make you cry.

    My story "Solo" appears in this excellent music charity anthology, Music Speaks. It is an odd hybrid of the darkly comic and the eerily apocalyptic... with a musical theme. Aw, rather than me explain it, just read it. Okay, uh, please?

    My story "Unquiet Slumbers" appears in the zombie anthology First Time Dead, Volume 3. It spills blood, gore and genuine tears of sorrow. Anyway, buy this stellar anthology and judge for yourself.

  • Seasons
    by David Antrobus, Edward Lorn, JD Mader, Jo-Anne Teal

    Four stories, four writers, four seasons. Characters broken by life, although not necessarily beaten. Are the seasons reminders of our growth or a glimpse of our slow decay?

    I have two stories in this delightful compendium of every 2012 winner of their Flash Fiction Challenge—one a nasty little horror short, the other an amusing misadventure of Og the caveman, his first appearance.

Dissolute Kinship Wins Readers' Choice Award

This is really a follow up to the last post. The two-week voting period for Big Al's Books and Pals 2013 Readers' Choice Awards is now over, and Dissolute Kinship: A 9/11 Road Trip was fortunate enough to receive the most votes in the Memoir category, enough to win it, which is a great honour and one for which I am humbly grateful. There? Did that sound like a gracious speech? But seriously, winning this award has been a glimmer of light in a pretty dark few weeks for me personally, so I am very appreciative of everyone who read my book, everyone who voted in the contest, all the other fine and awesome independent authors whose books were nominated and, especially, Big Al Kunz and his team over there. Nice work, everyone.

Ah, Jo, always ready to twist my arm to write more. I want to, I really do. Life stuff has been intruding, lately, but yeah. I do appreciate your encouragement.

Diavid, congratulations! Again! And more hugs. And please keep writing. Or I'll send Mader around. You know what happens then. :D
