Quote of the Week: You seek for knowledge and wisdom, as I once did; and I ardently hope that the gratification of your wishes may not be a serpent to sting you, as mine has been.
HEY YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!
ISSUE 7 of Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens is out. Read it. Love it. Laugh your ass off. And if you don't laugh your ass off or any other part of your body for that matter, then this issue comes with a money back guarantee. (***DISCLAIMER: Only half of money will be refunded if you spit milk or any other liquid out your nose while reading***)
It is free. It is online. It is a PDF. It begins with a letter from a dog and ends with a bag of gold. It is very good.
Read it and find the answers to life's many questions. The same questions that keep you awake all night long, wondering...
What would a dog say to a cat before he gets put to sleep?
What ingredients do you need in order to find true love?
What would the Illuminati family do to your daughter if you screwed up their dry cleaning?
And more importantly...why are the people who cross your lawn wearing gas masks?
Issue 7 includes stories (Rhys Hughes, D. Harlan Wilson, John Edward Lawson, Sean Kilpatrick, Mike Young, Corey Mesler, Andersen Prunty, Cameron Pierce, Amelia Gray, Caleb Ross, Forrest Armstrong, Stefani Nellen, Erik Williams, Jason M. Heim, and Matt Doyle), books reviews (John Edward Lawson's Discouraging At Best and Jeremy C. Shipp's Vacation), and cover art (Jase Daniels).
We're talking cover art so good you might want to use it as your screensaver, next year's Christmas cards and probably a template for your next wall mural, maybe in the kitchen...
Not to mention that it's free.
And to add to that...
Just think... All the bathroom reading, plane reading and sitting in a doctor's office waiting for your flu shot reading combined into one fabulous issue!
We're also selling the last print issue (number 6) for half price. THAT'S RIGHT PEOPLE!!! BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL ON BUST DOWN THE DOOR AND EAT ALL THE CHICKENS! (don't all get up at once and run to the little blue light..you might cause a scene!)
And guess what?

My Interview with Mike Neff on Eclectica You can find his site at Webdelsol. This interview is all about his new book, Year of the Rhinoceros, which not only has an ultra cool film trailer to advertise the book but you can also go to this site and find out how to make your book into a film teaser trailer as well, all located at Net Pix. The book should be available soon through Red Hen Press.
My Review of We Swallow(ed) Spiders In Our Sleep. This is available through Pudding House Chap Book Series and you can find Zach's Blog here.
And if you missed it when it first came out...make sure you check out JD's Whirligigzine! Wheeee!! I love to say that name. If I had a dog, I would name him whirligig.
I will be back here in a few days with a writing blog. If you haven't read some of my archives or if you are new to the site, then feel free to peruse and use.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
