Witty with a sick sense of humor. One of the best books I’ve read in a long time!
Too scared to kill himself but also too scared to live, Daniel is a sad, pathetic man; a miserable martyr of depression A year after he was dumped by his self-centered alcoholic girlfriend, he still wallows in the hole she left behind. And, except for the cubicle that he spends forty hours a week in, Daniel rarely leaves the bare white walls that make up his apartment. Trapped in his self-made ennui, his only escape is to hire a hitman. But when one of his few friends kills herself Daniel realizes the error of his ways. He tries to cancel the hit but in the process he offends his contracted killer. Now his impending death is personal and his life is about to get more exciting than he ever could have imagined. Suicide in Tiny Increments is edgy and morbid in the most hilarious ways. But it also pushes the limits of dark literary fiction to make you think. From April V. on Amazon:
This book makes you love, hate, feel sorry for, and cheer for the main character, Daniel, and also examine your own emotional fragility. The writing is funny, honest, and deeply descriptive. Not for the faint of heart, as this work of fiction actually makes you think and feel.
What about film? Could Suicide in Tiny Increments be a movie someday? It’s a sentiment that has been expressed by readers since I first developed the idea. K.Z. echoes that thought in her review on Amazon:
This novel was a product of wit, twisted humor, and bold descriptive skills. An entertaining read from start to finish. Seriously, with the right actors to play the part of the sick, sad—but certainly intriguing– characters, I can easily see this as a satisfying tragicomedy film.
Personally I’m crossing my fingers for Louie C.K…. And you can help make it happen! Read the book, review it on Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, etc., tell your friends, tell everybody! Oh, and don’t forget to like my facebook page. This week I’m running a contest for a signed paperback copy! (US and Canada only).
So where do you get this book anyway? I’m glad you asked… the paperback is available at createspace and Amazon. You can get the Kindle book at Amazon or Smashwords. Smashwords also has just about every other e-reader format and Lulu’s got the epub. No matter how you like to read Suicide in Tiny Increments is available in a format to suit your needs! It’s even available for library distribution, so don’t be afraid to ask your local library to stock it. Seriously. That would really help an author out.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of my novel! Don’t be shy!
