I was listening to Litopia After Dark podcast on the way into work this morning and I think I’m going to keep writing and send everything I write to Peter Cox. I know he’s not going to respond to me, but he has the greatest accent and my second favorite name, after mine of course.
I finished reading Chuck Wendig’s first Atlanta Burns novel: Shotgun Gravy, and enjoyed the hell out of it. To the point where I went to his kickstarter.com campaign to write more Atlanta novels and gave a few bucks. Shotgun Gravy is a Teen novel about a girl who is a victim of bullying and abuse by her mother’s boyfriend – except she takes matters into her own hands with a shotgun full of bird-shot. It’s only .99 at amazon and well worth the price.
I know school bullying is getting a good amount of attention in the news due to suicides from victims, however this book nails it in the gut with some deep-rooted bigotry and hatred. Highly recommended.
I think I’m going to write a review on Amazon, I linked to the page above.
