Cover Reveal and

For the past several months, I have been revising, rewriting, and regrinding blogs posts, and if all goes well, the material will be available as a book on Amazon soon. (and free to anyone who asks) The focus will be on running and the role it plays in recovery from addiction, with all sorts of other stuff thrown in.

And for the record and a disclaimer, he had no idea I was going to post this until he was done. I like to pass on the word for good work. All of this because Instant Karma's gonna get me. Gonna smack right me in the face. 

We all shine on.

Christa has stories splattered about the book world, and one has landed in Year'sBest Hardcore Horror, Volume 2.She's been a tireless advocate for addiction awareness and treatment, and has written a truly touching and personal blog post. Check it out:

You’ll probably agree with me when I say that the word ‘epic’ is an overused one. ‘That was an epic party last night, man.’ ‘The cupcakes Betsie made for Jess’s party were epic!’ ‘Whoa, Claire just delivered the most epic of epic burns!’ Despite the propensity for ‘epic’ to be thrown around like a Frisbee at a frat house, I’ve never shied from attributing the term to certain works of fiction, or from feeling more connected to those works because of it.

When I was in middle school, I was always primed for the …

BODY OF CHRIST is the story of a young boy who secretly builds his own Jesus out of communion wavers and the flesh of his dead father. (Of course, his Jesus will rise, like Christ-figures tend to do. )
