Rise of the Tellers 15: Wedding, Part 3

I woke up to donuts and D’s instruction. He looked at me and smiled. “I got married months ago.” “I know. I gave you a kick ass toast,” I said. “I remember. Listen—” “It was a better toast than your Best Man’s toast. I don’t think he will ever forgive me for that.” “I need… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 15: Wedding, Part 3

Rise of the Tellers 14: Wedding, Part 2

I woke up at about one and she hit me right away. “I want all the bridesmaids to wear white!” Bekah said. I sat up. This was my favorite way to wake up. She had started doing this almost instantly when we had gotten engaged but as we got closer to time it picked up… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 14: Wedding, Part 2

Rise of the Tellers 12: Latoka

It was the first house I lived in that had a fenced-in yard. The first house I lived in that had a dishwasher. It was the house I brought my first-born son home to, and the one I carried my wife over the threshold of. I finished my first novel in the house on Latoka.… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 12: Latoka

Rise of the Tellers 9: Please

My birthday was one day off of Grasp’s. Every time I had a party or celebrated at all I thought of him all day. So to break this problem wide open I decided to celebrate my half birthday. My birthday would come and go unmentioned but when the half birthday came around we would go… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 9: Please

Rise of the Tellers 7: Chaste

What if I started writing fantasy? The memoirs stalled out. In this book we have discovered that Bekah and I never had a chance. Not until 2004, not until we got enough away from everyone else and their expectations for us. When we adopted that attitude Bekah had in Knife, Part 1, “Fuck that.” After… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 7: Chaste

Rise of the Tellers 6: The Knife, Part 2

When we drove to New York to go to the wedding of Bliss and her man, Bell came with us as far as Columbus, Ohio. Burg was living there at the time and he was our halfway point. Bell came and the plan was to leave him with Burg for the week and pick him… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 6: The Knife, Part 2

Rise of the Tellers 2: Bell

Disclaimer: I have limited knowledge on warthogs, their breeding habits or their average dimensions. I would not know a good-sized warthog from a petite warthog. I do not claim to be a warthog expert or enthusiast. When I walked away from Siren I walked away from an entire group of friends. In that one move… Continue reading Rise of the Tellers 2: Bell

Aftermath New Girl 9: Legends

Angel and I didn’t survive Christmas Break. She didn’t kick me out when we broke up, but I was no longer being watched. I was much of the time trapped at her house. When Bekah showed up to pick me up one day, I was… well, I was at home. I can’t tell you what… Continue reading Aftermath New Girl 9: Legends

Hollow Man 24: Destiny Part 3

I released Teardrop Road on June 23, 2021. I think it was a Thursday. It was pretty devastating to put it out in the world on the big stage. Having your secrets on a blog is one thing. The worldwide stage opens up doubts and fears that I expected but could never prepare myself for. However, this… Continue reading Hollow Man 24: Destiny Part 3

The New Girl 17: The Death of the Droogs

Bell was here a few weeks ago. He brought Christmas presents for everyone. I got a mug. It is huge and it is made out of an ox horn. It’s one of the most badass things I own, and I will use it next time I have my Barbarian Goat Drinking Party. For details on… Continue reading The New Girl 17: The Death of the Droogs
