I'm sharing with you the prologue and first chapel of a novel I'm working on called Teddies.
This is meant to be a dark comedy. (I'm a satire addict.) I welcome
constructive criticism, so please give me tips on anything from grammar
and syntax to style and themes. Please enjoy and comment below with ANY
comments or questions.
Synopsis (click "Read the rest of this entry..." to see the full text):
It's tough when you move to a new school, especially
when a Jewish prophet high on LSD has convinced a cult full of teenaged
upper-class serial killers that you're their messiah, sparking a series
of murders and terror on your town and ending in a massive police chase
after you turn yourself and them all in for several counts of

It came in the form of a text message exchange from oldest son, who had a nickname here but now I can’t remember what it was. Oh yes - Bubta. (Whatever.) Anyway, he’s closing in on age 13 but think he’s more like 15 or 16.
KB's Ponderings In Regards to Angry Chicks in Leather
When Ana from the Book Smugglers bought to my attention an article called Angry Chicks in Leather, that Urban Fantasy author Lillith Saintcrow wrote for
Announcing The Girl Revolution Launch Party.
The Girl Revolution’s only aim is to heal the soul of the world by raising powerful girls. Readers of The Girl Revolution
know that girls are one of the most vital resources of the world. We’re
going to protect them from media consumption and dissolve every single
barrier that exists between girls and gender and economic equality.
How do I know this?
