Novellas Get Short Shrift

Hey, authors: you'll need to super-size that manuscript. Because word count really counts if you want to get traditionally published. It's important to literary agents because it's important to the major publishing houses. Many will only accept for review manuscripts that meet their length requirements. American publishers want your submission to be at least 60,000 words. Or 70,000, even 80,000... Read more of this blog post »

When a married couple journey to Morocco during Ramadan, the wife is hoping for a holiday uncomplicated by her husband's battle with alcoholism. Sadly, this is not the case and Lauren Tivey's lush poems illustrate the highs and lows of her love and ...more
What I Did for Love by Mickey J. Corrigan
"The author's trademark humour and approach is evident in Mickey J. Corrigan's latest offering.

The author is never afraid to approach plots that surely are unbelievable in real life but for sure will be happening somewhere out there! That's what ma..." Read more of this review »
What I Did for Love by Mickey J. Corrigan
"‘What I Did for Love’ by Mickey J. Corrigan is an unusual book. It’s about a lady teacher, seductress, cougar. The book is engrossing, and yet disturbing. It took me a while to accept the idea of a woman interested only in boys. Grown men were nev..." Read more of this review »
Mickey and 8 other people liked Imogen's review of The Alcoholic:
The Alcoholic by Jonathan Ames
"I love that when you type 'alcoholic' in the search box, two Bukowsi books that don't have the word 'alcoholic' in their titles come up before anything else.

Anyway, I like Jonathan Ames. You like Jonathan Ames, right? We all like Jonathan Ames. J..." Read more of this review »

Beautiful, creative, brilliant, with science as poetry, as story, written to share a warning: save the trees, save the planet, save ourselves. A work of essential genius.

Bret Easton Ellis
“I am gripped by an existential panic.”
Bret Easton Ellis

Tim O'Brien
“A true war story is never moral. It does not instruct, nor encourage virtue, nor suggest models of proper human behavior, nor restrain men from doing the things men have always done. If a story seems moral, do not believe it. If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. There is no rectitude whatsoever. There is no virtue. As a first rule of thumb, therefore, you can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil.”
