About Leather to the Corinthians

I know what ails you!

I know life has a way of grinding you like fair trade coffee and you desperately seek some relief, from the absurdities of the modern world that dictate all your beliefs. I’ve got just the thing to ease your worried mind, listen as I unveil a tale of a troubled time…

Gather round all you tattooed, lost soul wandering, Wi-Fi/Lo-Fi mutants! Come! Come listen to the hypnotic beat of my drum! Join me on trip to the Village, a strange and surreal place, where an epic battle will determine the fate of the human race! BRAD PERFECT reports from his NETWORK ONE stronghold, as we watch the late- breaking news unfold! The GENERAL is determined to win this war for the insane clown insurgent wants to settle a score! He’s got a bone to pick with his nemesis the KING, the mad ruler of the Village who only cares about his celebrity status and bling! You’ll meet a young SOLDIER, who fights to survive, losing his humanity along the way!

At root of this evil is the sinister SELL INC., the monster-mega-multi-national corporation whose CEO’s implants light up when he blinks! Then there’s poor PETER, the dull corporate drone whose only wish in life was not to end up alone, His boss sends him on a mission to shut the Limp Pigeon down, such a pity because it’s the only good sex club in town. But alas! Good news! The pigeon is set free when here he discovers a vixen of virtual reality in addition to the fulfillment of a very special fantasy!

Folks, I know you’re feeling the stress, of this big, hairy post-apocalyptic mess, but no worries since you’ll cruise with SCRATCH MICROPHONE, who’ll make sure to get you out of the danger zone. Just take a pill and you’ll chill with his mellow vibe as he leads the good people of his DODGE TRIBE.

If you stay faithful through this crazy crusade, then you’ll earn FR. EVERHARD’s eternal praise! Now, that’s a slam dunk in the eyes of the BIG RED J, hey, why not become an Official Sidekick today!
My friend, I know you may be feeling like life is a curse, but listen up—it could always be worse!

Your gratitude should really begin now.

Leather to the Corinthians is an absurd postmodern fable that defiantly flips a middle finger at modern American life.   Through the perspectives of its multiple characters, Leather to the Corinthians explores the absurdities of organized religion, the military, big business, fast food, advertising, sex, and the media. Witty, with bitter undertones, its story possesses a satirical spirit as it plays with traditional story structure, phrasing and cultural references. Its multiple layers encourage return visits as its characters have many more unique tales to tell.

  1. I’m in the process of self-publishing my first book (which doesn’t fit any genre or target any niche readership). I admire all your planning, research, consultation, etc, but, frankly, I’d buy anything you wrote, just from reading your blog. I’m almost your dad’s age, yet all I’m capable of doing is learning from my mistakes.

    1. I really appreciate this. I am sharing all I can, with the time I have, so that we can all get over the wall and get our work out there. I remember my father telling me that you never stop making mistakes, the key is to not keep making the same ones. Great to meet you.

    1. I was just checking out your blog (fantastic by the way) and I thought, now here is someone that will really dig my book (I hope). Glad you stopped by, it gave me a chance to discover your writing.

      1. Oh sir, you are just too sweet. Thank you very much.

        You had me at “explores the absurdities of organized religion” by the way. <3

  2. A post on eternalddomnation persuaded me to drop by and take a look at you. I’m so glad I did! Liked your page and bought your book. As time permits–so many blogs, so many to visit–I will come knocking again. :)

      1. Hello back at you, Tom. I’ve taken a quick look-see at your blog and will return ASAP. Between my job, writing on my novel, posting on WordPress and keeping up with other things associated with my writing, I don’t get to read much. It takes me a while to visit and comment on posts I like. I’m sure you know where I’m coming from–too much to do and so little time.
