An update on Korsakoff Blight

Korsakoff Blight, the novel I self-published in 2017 is a work I’m very proud of. It’s deeply personal and a perfect example of the kind of project I want to release regularly. It’s the purest expression of who I am as a writer and as a human being. But I think it can be more. I think it can be better. I think it can be everything I want it to be. And right now, it isn’t. So I’ve decided to unp...

“I was having a lovely day. It's always a lovely day, for tooth decay.”
Eddie Wright, Broken Bulbs

“I've been riding on the crest of a slump lately.”
Tom Waits

“Likewise and during every day of an unillustrious life, time carries us. But a moment always comes when we have to carry it. We live on the future: “tomorrow,” “later on,” “when you have made your way,” “you will understand when you are old enough.” Such irrelevancies are wonderful, for, after all, it’s a matter of dying. Yet a day comes when a man notices or says that he is thirty. Thus he asserts his youth. But simultaneously he situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it. That revolt of the flesh is the absurd.”
Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

“The problem with introspection is that it has no end.”
Philip K. Dick

“The only words I've said today are "beer" and "thank you".”
Bill Callahan

Eddie Quite busy with my "other" life. Hopefully it'll settle soon. Working with an artist on some sketches on the Broken Bulbs comic. Hopefully will be starting something new as well.

Eddie God bless the internet coincidence.

Thanks a lot! I really like Transient Rant. I'm excited to read "Hector." I read the preview on Lulu. I think we may have a bit in common.

Jenn I did enjoy your book it was thought provoking. I loved the parallels between Frank's broken life, broken dreams, and broken ideas (bulbs?). I liked how you made the reader guess as they went as you jumped right in with the story. I felt led along until the very end when it came full circle and made sense.

Great read!


Stuart Thanks for adding me....I see you are a fan of Ginnetta Correli as well, she is brilliant!!



Robert Thank you for the kind invitation, Eddie. Best of luck to you with your projects!

Roger Cottrell Hi Eddie.

message 5: by M.G.

M.G. I enjoyed reading your interview online and I have to say it seems you and I have a lot in common when it comes to the "self-published world" in which we live. I, too find it difficult at times being inexperienced with marketing, along with all the other "how-to's" of how to get ones book out to the public. I am still waiting for the day I walk into an airport and see my book in someones hands. Hopes and dreams, something I believe every true author has and hopefully never loses. Take care and if you'd ever like to exchange ideas pertaining to ways of promoting our stories please feel free to send me a message.


Andrea Kulman Hi & thank you for being a friend on Good Reads!


message 3: by Raven

Raven Thanks for the invitation Eddie. Although I would have accepted anyway I absolutely had too when I found out the character names in Broken Bulbs. I found that very amusing.

Have a great weekend!
Bonnie


Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

-Jeremy


Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Eddie!

Here’s wishing you a nifty new 2008 filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

I thought I'd let you know that my novel “Vacation” has been nominated for the best Horror Novel of 2007 in the Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll. So far it's ranked 4th.

In case you're interested in voting, feel free to visit the website here:

Thanks again!

-Jeremy :)
