[Announcement] High Water Audiobook, narrated by Jeff Hays

You know, it’s always awesome to see someone truly committed to their work.

Jeff Hays has been extremely busy lately. I first heard him narrate Dead of Night, by MR Forbes, among other works, and I was blown away at the performance. He’s got this sarcastic lilt to his voice that lends an edge to the author’s portrayal of people and situations.

I’m happy to say that Jeff is going to narrate my kung fu/zombie/stoner book, and furthermore, turn it into a all out audio drama. Here’s a sample he produced for me just the other day:

How dope is that chapter? I’m pumped.

Please give it a listen and support him. If you’re into audiobooks at all, you’re going to see this guy going places. His portfolio exploded over the past year.

[Non-Fiction] Link between pot smoking and manic behavior, study suggests

I found a link between manic behavior and working a full time job. Where’s my article?

COVENTRY, England – British scientists say they’ve found a significant link between marijuana use and manic behavior. And, teenagers are especially vulnerable to the effects of pot, they say.

The research published in the Journal of Affective Disorders looked at what pot does to people who have certain behaviors.

Their study of 2,000 people found that smoking weed can precede or coincide with manic episodes, such as anger, along with aggressive or violent behavior.

Smoking pot was also associated with depression, and a reduced need to sleep resulting from hyper-activity.

They also found that some pot smokers had episodes of delusion, and sometimes they heard voices.

But, apparently there was no evidence that getting high made you crazy.

The researchers were particularly concerned with teenagers, because smoking pot during that critical stage in their development could lead to problems on down the road.

My book HIGH WATER is a cannabis-infused thriller about a group of pothead martial artists trapped in an infested waterpark during a terrifying dubstep concert.

Here’s the link to the book if you’ve never read it before:

[Non-fiction] “Not minding that it hurts”: Marijuana as a “pain distracter”

With Lawrence in Arabia.jpg

“With Lawrence in Arabia” by Lowell Thomas (photographer) – Lowell Thomas. “With Lawrence in Arabia”, book is in public-domain, full text available at Archive.org; originally from University of Toronto. Licensed under Public Domain via Wikimedia Commons –

Where do THC and Lawrence of Arabia meet? You’ll find out in a minute. This post is going to outline the pain distraction effects of the marijuana plant’s active compounds, specifically THC.

First, a little background on the state of medical marijuana and the current zeitgeist around CBDs.

Charlotte’s Web, a homegrown variety of marijuana documented in Sanjay Gupta’s CNN series, is a CBD-heavy strain that has found successful medical application for people suffering seizures. You could argue that Charlotte’s Web is now just as ingrained in the national consciousness as Maui Wauie. CBD, or Cannabidiol, is famous for its anti inflammatory effects and relatively low psychotropic impact. Strains heavy in CBDs, like Charlotte’s Web, are the go-to variety for treating children. It’s seen as unacceptable that children should experience any psychotropic effects from the drugs they consume. I’m not going to belabor that point here, even though it’s a little ridiculous considering some of the garbage shoved down kids throats, like sugar and caffeine. Continue reading

Interview: R.D. Ronald, author of The Elephant Tree and The Zombie Room

This is the first interview we’ve done here on Pot Fiction, and it’s pretty damn exciting!

rdronaldR.D. Ronald, an up and coming crime novelist, is the author of The Elephant Tree and The Zombie Room. We reviewed The Elephant Tree here. It’s a great read. When RD Ronald suggested that we talk some more, Pot Fiction jumped at the opportunity!

You can find R.D. Ronald on Twitter @RDRonaldauthor, Goodreads, Facebook, and Google+.

RW Tucker, Pot Fiction: You’ve mentioned that your own personal experiences influenced your writing. Many people turn their back on their past lives. Within the bounds of what you are comfortable talking about, of course, what made you want to put those experiences to paper?

R.D. Ronald: When I first went to prison I found the expected assortment of horrible individuals that anyone would expect to be in there. What did surprise me, though, were the number of decent people that had been the victim of horrendous circumstances they either reacted to, or took the only option left open to them. While I was inside I read and read and read, as you would expect, but while working my way through numbers of crime thrillers I began to find the plots somewhat tedious and predictable, and in no way reflective of the people I was surrounded by who had, and still were, living out their very own crime thrillers. I decided to put some ideas down on paper, much of it fiction, some very altered experiences I had lived through or heard of, and let it begin to take shape. I wanted the criminality to be reflected in as open a way as I could without vilifying or glamorising the experience. I had no idea how the readers would eventually take this on board, but I was writing the type of book I wanted to read, not seeking out commercial success by trying to please everyone. Through social media rather than backing from a big publisher I have been able to connect with like-minded souls and luckily for me they seem to love it, which has enabled me to carry on exploring my passion for writing.
