Each short will focus on a TOWY 'farmer' (suicidal person) and their intended kill (person deemed to be worthy of taking out), with Thane Parks as Detective.

BTW - have you visited www.towy.la, the website at the root of the TOWY movement?(less)

Wow, Between the Shades of Grey looks intense. Might have to go on my TBR as well! Keep in touch...


Jelena Bosh Jelena Bosh I haven't heard of that one before but from the synopsis that I read and hearing that It had such an impact on your own life, then its going on my TBR haha. Its strange how a book, even fiction, can have such a strong influence and for me it would have to be "Between the Shades of Grey". I have read a lot of books that I love but this one in particular I just can't seem to forget, its both sweet and sad at the same time. Thank you for the friend request!
