Advance Praise

“As someone who teaches, edits and reads for a living, I’m always looking for the scene, the character, the story I haven’t read a thousand times over and over. Something with the spark of originality and the courage to be different. When I see that something new, it’s always a joy. And, thanks to Caleb Ross and his Stranger Will, I had those moments of joy repeatedly throughout the book. This is an original—unlike anything you’ve ever read before.”

Rob Roberge, author of More Than They Could Chew and Drive

“Stranger Will is a nightmare landscape littered with the carcasses of fatherhood and various social mores. This is one paranoid, challenging, beautiful, and pitch-dark book. I’m a little afraid of this Ross guy now; but I’ll also read anything he writes.”

Paul Tremblay, author of The Little Sleep  and In The Mean Time

“Just like a Palahniuk novel, Stranger Will reads volatile: it could go any way.

Dipping into The Cult for donations, I love it

I don’t talk much about my son on this blog. Mostly because I am disappointed in him. I mean, damn, he’s two…get a fucking job!

I jest. But you know what isn’t funny? Premature birth (see what I did there? I zig and I zag).

My son was born 6 weeks early, which in the grand scheme of premature births isn’t quite the devastation that many new parents suffer. Jameson is perfect now, despite his early birth, thanks in part to the medical advances encouraged by donations to the March of Dimes March for Babies organization.

I try to keep my pleading posts to a minimum here at my blog, but this time of year brings out the beggar in me.

My wife has set up her annual fundraising micro-site at the March for Babies website with the goal of raising a meager $300 for the March for Babies.… Read the rest

Fresh from our own live readings, me, Ben Tanzer (You Can Make Him Like You), Ryan W. Bradley (publisher, Artistically Declined Press), Nik Korpon (Stay God), and Brandon Tietz (Out of Touch) have a sit down at Bourbon in Washington DC to discuss the hows and whys of author performance.

Performance is part of the author’s life. Many of us may prefer the romance of the hermit writer to the reality of the performing writing, but as the culture shifts to a system of ever-spilling minutia (Twitter) and increasingly fragmented media distribution channels (hundreds of TV channels, YouTube, Hulu, and on and on), the author is expected to play an active role in selling both his book and himself. Performance—live author readings—offers a unique opportunity to do both.
