The Wild West and a Free Kindle Ebook

I have recently been writing a novel set in the old west, but my knowledge of it is limited. Even though I grew up in the south, it was never really something I was interested in. If it is something that you are familiar with, I would appreciate some feedback. What movies should I watch, including dramas, comedies, and documentaries? The same with books. Fiction and history books that I should check out to familiarize myself with that time period. Any comments would be appreciated.

Speaking of books, my most recent ebook is free today and tomorrow. You are welcome to go get it and share the link anywhere and everywhere. I could always use reviews, on the new one as well as the three that I have self-published before. The new book, as stated in the description, is the best (in my humble opinion) of my completed short stories, opinion pieces, rants, raves and whatever other detritus that has floated through my brain and spilled onto the keyboard.

Perspective and Other Detritus

That’s a good thing, right? Right. However, I had to ‘claim’ the book in order for it to show up on my author page. That could take up to five days to happen. So until then, my new book looks like it is from a new author. Since 2011, I have self-published three others and while I don’t have a big audience, there are some people who have read my work. It helps people to see some reviews (which are all good, so far) and a little history, doesn’t it? I think it’s important and since I used the same account and the same name, it should just do this automatically.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t. So for those who are not familiar with my books or need a reminder, I’ll give you the link to my amazon author page and then the one for my new one, Perspective and Other Detritus.

Thank you for your support. And come on, amazon, get your shit together.

visceral, for @zuzugirls

you are the sunshine, a gentle caress
the petals of a lily, surging sweet life into its breast
as we undress

the moon that grips it, slips it
deftly, ever so softly toward the expanse of space
to kiss an ellipsis upon your face

the kind that sparks fire in the mind
of a distant other, the desire to find
fingers sliding up the skirt of a lover

you murder the melancholy, the folly
that resides inside the hearts of men
it starts again
with a whisper of your voice in the din

you are the mystical whisp, a kiss so visceral
dismissing the miserable
with a flick of the wrist,
both literal and physical

just some dumb ebook

I haven’t written anything here in a while. I’ve been meaning to, but you know life gets in the way and all that shit. In the interest of brevity and because I’m tired as fuck after working all week, I’ll get to the point. Tomorrow, December 21st, will mark the second anniversary of my wildly inappropriate comedy ebook on amazon.com, Spank Material for the Clinically Insane. Why should you give a shit? Well maybe because I’m giving it away for free all weekend. I will be promoting it to see how high I can get it to chart in the free comedy book section, so if you would, please tell your friends family, coworkers, your hair stylist (you know they’ll spread the word), your local grocer, dominatrix and anyone else you see on a regular basis. Oh and spread the virus on your twitters and facebooks and all that other junk. Have a merry Kwanzaa or whatever.

Here is the link in case you’re too lazy to google it: Spank Me!

Repost for @Kizisbomb

if your name…

if your name transformed
from words to flesh
i would taste you
on the swell of my tongue

if your soul gave form
as a body of light
i would be taken aback
and blinded

if your speech sought purchase
it indeed
would light upon my ears

and i would surely gasp
and feel holy
in the absence of god
