Frank Sinatra In A Blender - June 1, 2011.

For the last few months I’ve been busy. I’ve had a lot happening. I got an agent in New York and I got a deal on an eBook with Concord ePress. My book comes out next Wednesday, June 1, and I’m excited. It’s been a lot of hard work but in the end I believe I have a strong, very unique book.

It’s called Frank Sinatra in a Blender. It’s about a private detective in St. Louis who drinks. A lot. He has other bad habits too, and he really doesn’t care what you think about them. He’s his own man, and that’s just the way he likes it. He has a drinking problem, a drug problem, and a partner named Frank Sinatra.

Did I mention he carries a shotgun and a chainsaw?

Did I mention the book has a gracious and very generous introduction from Ken Bruen?

Did I mention the book is dedicated to Charlie Sheen?

Stay tuned. Next week you can order a copy for about 8 bucks and see what all the talk is about.

Strong. Like racking an eight plate bar after an ass to the floor squat. Or a half-mile wheelie. Cheers.

Matt, don't know if you will remember me and our summers together as neighbors years ago. I am so proud of you, I know it's been a tough road.

My cousin smoked pot with this guy in 2006 at a truck stop on the outskirts of Utah on a late Thursday afternoon just as the sun dripped in the west like melted wax and evening arrived like a flock of angry woodpeckers and the whole time he kept falling asleep and bogarting the joint, however unintentional it may have been, then he asked my cousin for 5 dollars and sprinted from the pickup before my cousin could give him the money. True story. MCBRIDE is an accident waiting to happen.
