Books for a Buck Hop is going on
And Troll Or Derby is appropriately priced to take part. How cool is that?
Between you and me and the wall, running sales and promotions takes a lot of time, and I am ridiculously slammed with work right now, so I probably will not be running any sales on the #1 Top Rated Dark Fantasy on Amazon.com in the foreseeable future. I’m just crazy busy! And busy is good!
SO, if you’ve been on the fence about checking out the best book EVER WRITTEN about trolls and fairies who play roller derby and battle Midwest meth dealers at underground concerts that make Ozzy circa 1980 look tame, GET OFF THAT DAMN FENCE AND SPEND LESS THAN A BUCK ON THIS BOOK. Today’s your lucky day, bro!
Sequel (Troll Or Park) coming asap. Also makes a great gift. Did you know if you are buying a Kindle for your sweetie for Valentine’s Day, you can buy my book today while it’s on sale, and choose delivery to be, say, 2/14 or 2/15? You can.
Book is returning to Barnes & Noble and iTunes, Sony, Kobo, etc. soon, too.
Love ya, very busy, got comic book reviews to write and turn in before my newly-healthy again editor goes all cuckoo on me. ;) (If you’re reading this, Ian, we love you.)
This week I take on Mark Millar’s (not to be confused with Frank Miller, KING OF THE NERDS, omfg) Hit Girl, and Caligula, Heart of Rome. Hrm…
Don’t forget: Books for a Buck Hop. You heard it here first.
Who loves ya, baby?
Thank you for making Troll Or Derby the Top-rated novel in Dark Fantasy on Amazon.
From the bottom of my heart, it means more to me than you can possibly know.
Need to finish a side project then I will dive into Troll Or Park. Feel like I’ve been waiting forever, honestly. Like waiting on my wedding day.
Latest four star review for Troll Or Derby
Roller Deb’s big ambition is to race in the roller derby, until she discovers her mom isn’t her mom, her sister’s boyfriend is a troll, literally, and she’s about to take the term `growth spurt’ to a whole new level. This was such a fun book to read. Imagine the difference between the fairy tale `Sleeping Beauty’ and the movie `Shrek’. Well, that’s what Red Tash has done for YA fantasy - turned everything on its head, and the results are definitely read-worthy. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoyed Shrek or is tired of sugar-coated YA paranormal romance.

Why fairies on roller skates?
Sometimes people ask me “Why fairies on roller skates?”
If you’ve ever played roller derby you get it. Roller derby is magic.
A lot of people haven’t played roller derby, though, so to those people I ask “Have you ever seen Roller Boogie?”
This scene is one of the biggest confluences of fae in cinematic history. Well-glamoured and shimmering in a mixture of sweat and 70s disco attire, please watch this and tell me you don’t see it. It’s the only thing that explains the way they move, the way they slide, the vigor with which they doubtlessly performed take after take in the filming of this cinematic classic.
If that didn’t convince you, PLEASE watch the opening. The romantic lead puts on his skates *to go downstairs*, there’s a man in a wrestling unitard doing handstands on a public bench, they all take off like the pied piper is playing their tune…
…nobody wears a helmet or pad of any kind, and the thing that really clinches it for me? It’s not the para-skaters sailing between twin conga lines or the scantily-clad women without rhythm shaking it in the Parade of Crotches. Oh, no. It has always been the couple making out on top of the dumpster that is full of WIN for me. Fairies! Trolls! In the hizzouse! (Or in the trash, as the case may be.) Watch: the poor guy in the yellow shorts can hardly contain the rage from his case of blue balls, as he pounds the lid of said dumpster before adjusting his waistband . What a fuggin’ troll. It still makes me uncomfortable.
Anyway, please watch this vid and tell me you don’t “get” fairies and trolls on skates.
Then flash forward 30 years and get today’s fairies and trolls on skates—no longer roller boogeying, but in a wonderland, nonetheless. Oh, yes, if less is more, then more is even morer, and I poured it on in this book with full abandon because I wanted it to be fun as the Unseelie Court on Halloween night, babies. Trick or treat. Ding dong. It’s free today for the last time so come and get it.
