My First Authored Book, CLOWN TEAR JUNKIES, to be Published in August 2013

Yikes, I haven’t updated by blog in like seven trillion years!!!

So, yeah, while I did make the following BIG announcement via social media about a month or so ago, I neglected to drop it here at the home base. So here goes: my collection of bizarro short stories, Clown Tear Junkies, will be published by Rooster Republic Press in August 2013. Yup, that’s next month. This will be my first published book, so needless to say I’m a Big Red Barn of excitement! (The poorly conceived “Big Red Barn” metaphor I just wrote doesn’t quite work, doesn’t quite make sense, but pardon me—it’s been a rough day at work and my brain is mush.)

I’ve seen other authors post the table of contents for their upcoming books on their blogs or Facebook timelines before, so what the heck: Imma gonna do it too. Here is the ToC for Clown Tear Junkies, which features a healthy mix of flash fiction and longer stories:

  • I Flunked Kindergarten
  • How Much is That Hospice in the Window?
  • The Date
  • On Planet Zōhlzärt, It’s Okay to Get with Your Grandpa
