Guillermo Stitch | 9 comments Hi there,

My name is Guillermo Stitch and my short novel, Literature®, will be available via Amazon and Kindle from July 1st.

I'm happy (delighted in fact) to provide ARC's in pdf, mobi or epub formats in exchange for advance Goodreads reviews.

It's a science fiction noir. here's the blurb:

We don't know exactly when Literature® takes place and we don't know exactly where. All we know is that Philip Marlowe would fit right in.

We don't get Marlowe though. We get Billy Stringer. And Billy is on nobody's trail.

He's the prey.

The day hasn't begun very well for Billy. He just messed up his first big assignment, he's definitely going to be late for work, his girlfriend won't get back to him and, for reasons she has something to do with, he's dressed like a clown.

Also, he's pretty sure someone is going to kill him today. But then, that's an occupational hazard, when you're a terrorist.

He's a bookworm too, which wouldn't be a problem–or particularly interesting–except that in Billy's world, fiction is banned. Reading it is what makes him an outlaw.

Why? Because people need to get to work.

It's fight or flight time for Billy and he's made his choice. But he has to see Jane, even if it's for the last time–to explain it all to her, before she finds out what he has become. That means staying alive for a little while.

And the odds are against him....

Although this is my fiction debut, my work has already garnered praise when privatey workshopped with published authors, none of whom were friends of mine. Examples"

"A fine, engaging, playful and original piece of work." Charles Boyle, author of The Age of Cardboard and String and owner of CB Editions, a leading small press in the U.K.

"The most astounding thing I've read in years." Matt Dennison, Rattle, Monkey Puzzle, Gargoyle Magazine.

"Better than Anthony Burgess at his utter best." James Lloyd Davis, Eric Hoffer Prose Award

"Groovy language - a delight to read." Penny Goring, leading light in British Altlit.

Pete Mandra | 1 comments Requesting reviews of my book Overland - the story of my crazy adventure overlanding through Africa.

The book is available for free on my website petemandra.com
If you'd rather I email you a copy, please email me pete (at) petemandra (dot) com

Thanks in advance and I hope you like the book!

Here's the blurb:

Join Paul DuPree, who, with his future wife at his side, quits his job to go for broke in a humor-filled ‘overland’ journey across Africa with some of the strangest fellow travelers you’ll ever meet.

The wild animals? Dangerous. A canvas tent is the only thing separating you from some of Africa’s most notorious beasts.

Life on the road? Rugged and rustic. You’d sell your soul for the taste of a cheeseburger.

And the break-neck speed of the South Africa to Kenya itinerary? Brutal. And be sure to bring more than one spare tire.

Paul’s hypochondriac girlfriend, joining him on the trip, worries she’s going to die from any number of mysterious tropical diseases. Black market deals, corruption and military convoy escorts aren’t found in any guidebook he’s ever read. And his tour companions, strangers from across the globe, drink, party and destroy their way from South Africa to Kenya.

The only thing keeping him going is the continent itself – rugged, mysterious, and beautiful, in a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, dangerous sort of way. Would that be enough, or would his sanity depart him long before he reaches the finish line in Nairobi?

Overland is your ticket to a pain and mosquito free hilarious journey through Africa.
