The High Water trilogy is complete

Wow! It’s been a few years of putting this together, and now we’re complete. It feels good.

HIGH WATER, PART 3: HANG EM HIGH!

This series started with an idea: what would a bunch of kung fu loving stoners do in a zombie apocalypse?

By the time I got to the third novel, there were Amish zealots, ancient conspiracies, villains becoming heroes, and heroes losing their innocence. Zombies became the most mundane part. The characters came to life in my mind. It became a story of friendship, love, and the mutual adoration of a substance that makes life a little better.

This was the series where I really found my writing chops. The people in the story went from one dimensional characters with funny one liners in High Water, to people struggling with real adversity in High Water: Low Point, to people struggling with the end of the world in Hang ‘Em High.

I’ve moved on to other book series at this point, but High Water will always be the story that launched my foray into literature. Zombie novels are a dime a dozen, but I think I made something special, and I’ll always be proud of it.

Thanks for your support, as always!

Weird Weed is live! Strange stoner stories

WEIRD WEED

Weird_Weed_Cover_for_Kindle

Here’s a project I’ve been working on for awhile. Starting with a few short stories of my own, Weird Weed became a collaborative project between myself, Mara K Eton and Tyler Haas.

If you’ve been reading the blog, you probably know by now that both are writing in this venerated little medium we call Pot Fiction. Tyler draws, Mara writes, and the both of them have strong lungs, it suffices to say.

Inside Weird Weed, you’ll find short stories about 19th century Jamaica, space travel, stoned animals, horror, love and loss, love found, weird sickos and lunatics, beloved friends and generally a lot of weed smoke. Seriously, the ganja drips off this book.

One unfortunate thing I found with some of

these stories is that they aren’t publishable. In fact, I’ve gotten some really disheartening letters back from magazine editors.

Literally: “This will promote drug use”.

Yeah, no shit.

Call it sour grapes, but I think that this is what self publishing is all about: sharing things without a middleman.

If you stay tuned, we’ll have a 4/20 sale where you can pick it up at a discount.

Thanks for all your support.
