Here it is, and in the interests of variety, I didn't do a selfie with it this time. Instead Cyrano is my model, though he didn't find it exciting enough to actually wake up. :)
To celebrate the arrival of Chicken Soup in print, if you comment here or on my FB page I will add your name to a hat. In one week from today, I will have Andyroo draw out one name to have a print copy sent to that person anywhere in the world.
Here's a five star review from Amazon by Gavin to whet your appetite!
"Merrybard has presented, here, a wonderful first person narrative.
"Satan" - the narrators nickname/alter ego - is you hard as concrete
exterior personality over softer, deeper core kind of bad arse suburban
Aussie. He drives a black utility, "the Nasgul", has long hair and tats,
and his best mate is a white Sheppard named Ghost.
been stuck living with his aging, ex-pat English, parents for too long
and he needs to get away from his matriarchal mother and senile father.
So he finds himself a share house. With very, very different people than
he normally associates with. Is this finally where he can really be
himself? Can he finally let the hard, unsmiling exterior go? It all
seems rather idyllic for a short while
Then weird s*** starts
happening. The world as they - Satan and his housemates - know it
becomes more and more warped. With strange creatures from the
imaginations and myths turning out to be very, very real.
along for the ride. Chicken Soup for Satan is laid out by a very
talented story teller and the first person style works beautifully. I'll
definitely be reading this one again and have already recommended it to
friends and family as well worth the time and money."
