  1. I am trying to start the genre of School Stories for Adults, which does not mean “adult” in the salacious sense! It is meant to convey humorous and poignant moments we may recall from our school days. But it is fictional of course ie a novel. Are you interested in reading a couple of pages from my new book to see if it has a chance?

  2. You’ve helped me discover some really interesting looking new post apocalyptic books here. Thank you very much for sharing these.
    In that genre I would highly recommend A M M by Nick Totem. http://www.nicktotem.com
    The story is told with a really dark tone that suspends a tremendous amount of tension and intrigue. Truly one of the most original and fresh concepts I have read in books of this kind and beautifully written with very strong characters.
