Thank you for this interview, David . Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?
I am the author of Corporate Porn (Silverthought Press), Emotionless Souls (Brown Paper Publishing), and The Last Breakfast (Brown Paper Publishing). Bleach|Blackout (Offense Mechanisms, an imprint of Silverthought Press), a double novel is my latest book.
I have been writing for several years now, binge writing in between short breaks.
Can you tell us a little about your latest book?
Both books explore a group of people living in the moment, yet not necessarily aware they are in the moment, but rather wasting time to get to the next point in their lives. Is it boredom, or more a feel of today’s generation and lack of cause, or motivation to find a cause?
Bleach is more the type of in your face read that forces you to either accept or not accept the lifestyle being led, there really no room for the in between. Blackout details more of these same characters pulling from their past and being forced to use instinct, rather than wait for life. A story about living.
Bleach opens during the last 60 seconds of 2003 in a bathroom where a girl lies dying and a jaded 30-year-old named Jeremy, who navigates the reader through the endless repulsiveness of the world, watches. Before diving into an explanation of what the is going on, Jeremy doubles back eight days, where you find him in the office ready to embark on a vacation back home to the Midwest. The question is whether Jeremy makes it back to New York.
The entire story builds up to the climax of the "The Party" on New Year's Eve where all the men are dressed as prostitutes, all the women look like pimps and decadence and debauchery dictate the rules. Everything seems to be spiraling out of control, and Jeremy realizes there are no guarantees for him or anyone else.
Blackout picks up two years after Bleach in Las Vegas where Stoner and friends are celebrating his bachelor party complete with strippers and crack cocaine. The ride home is blurry and the next morning in Los Angeles brings a surprise when Stoner’s friends, Chip and Jeremy, wake to find police officers and a dead body they are allegedly responsible for, but neither can recall.
