"CEREMONY OF FLIES hits the road like a nitrous-fueled GTO...and then pulls the ultimate stunt of getting better. What starts as a deceptively simple hard-boiled noir story twists on itself and adds layers and grows stranger and before you know it, BAM - it's the end of the world and all you can do is hang on by your fingernails. This really, truly is one of the best novellas I've read in year...

Charles Baudelaire
“Let us beware of common folk, common sense, sentiment, inspiration, and the obvious. ”
Charles Baudelaire

Franz Kafka
“From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.”
Franz Kafka, The Trial

Laird Barron
“It’s about walking, or crawling as the case may be, through this messy existence with eyes open. It’s about squeezing a fistful of shit and praying for a diamond.”
Laird Barron

Mary Borsellino
“As soon as teenage girls start to profess love for something, everyone else becomes totally dismissive of it. Teenage girls are open season for the cruelest bullying that our society can dream up. Everyone's vicious to them. They're vicious to each other. Hell, they're even vicious to themselves. It's terrible.

So if teenage girls have something that they love, isn't that a good thing? Isn't it better for them to find some words they believe in, words like the 'fire-proof and fearless' lyrics that Jacqui wrote? Isn't it better for them to put those words on their arm in a tattoo than for them to cut gashes in that same skin? Shouldn't we be grateful when teenage girls love our work? Shouldn't that be a fucking honor?

It's used as the cheapest, easiest test of crap, isn't it? If teenage girls love a movie, a book, a band, then it's immediately classified as mediocre shit. Well, I'm not going to stand for that. Someone needs to treat them like they're precious, and if nobody else is ready to step up, I guess it's up to us to put them on the path to recognizing that about themselves.”
Mary Borsellino, The Devil's Mixtape

Mary Borsellino
“Schools teach kids the greatest love story of all literature is the one where a 19-year-old guy and his 13-year-old girlfriend rack up a body count and then kill themselves together. Then when kids learn the lesson, everyone blames pop music.”
Mary Borsellino, The Devil's Mixtape

Gusto Dave Hi Kate! Thanks for approving us as friends.

I’m Gusto Dave Jackson, Publicity Chair for Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and I wouldn’t be worth my salt if I didn’t contact book lovers to tout our blog and organization. Chiseled in Rock http://chiseledinrock.blogspot.com features side-splitting satire, cartoons, and some flash fiction for intellectual readers.

Today, we’re poking fun at Ken Follett and spreading it on thick about what authors might do to stay published, and debunking stupid writing rules.

We also plug an occasional book and interview bestselling authors. For writers, we offer tips and agent/editor interviews. RMFW has several bestselling and award winning authors as members such as Mario Acevedo, Joanne Kennedy, C.J. Box, and Julie Kazimer. You are invited to follow “The Rock” for contests, entertainment, and an insight to the world of writing! We follow all bloggers who extend the invitation back!


Roxanne Happy to meet you.
