TFA Sneaks into Fancy Party

Everybody knows The Famous Author writes screwball mysteries, right? The Austin Carr series is more about laughs than it is solving murders, and if there's any smart deductions going on, they happen in the brain of Mama Bones or Luis, not me, Austin Carr.

You know my weakness -- I'm always thinking with the wrong organ. Thus it will come as a shock to many in the world of crime publishing that TFA finds one of his stories inside a new anthology, LAST WORDS, and that his story contained therein is without a laugh. In fact, it's violent and cringe-worthy, in that a young prostitute shows readers one terrible night of her life. LUCHA, he calls it.

You can order a copy of the anthology from Amazon right here.

Edited by ace crime writer and designer Liam Sweeny, LAST WORDS is published by Joyride Press, and features short stories by Les Edgerton, David Jaggers, Paul David Brazill, Steve Weddle, Court Merrigan, Todd Robinson, Tess Makovesky, Christopher Pimental, Gareth Spark and Angel Luis Colon in addition to TFA. The anthology is described as a "collection of hard-hitting stories from eleven of the best writers in the crime, pulp and noir genres."

Tell me how TFA got in that group, I'll tell you where Judge Crater is. He's sneaky, that's all. In other startling news, TFA isn't getting paid: all monies from the sale of LAST WORDS are going to the prison-reform organization, Nation Inside. Also, in case you're wondering, TFA likes the above back cover better than this front cover.

Can't imagine why.

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
avant-guarde-humility =
withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love –
jump into faith…
and you’ll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsXnonillionsX…
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.
Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
-our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

…think about it, girl…
1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
1-outta-1 shall be Divinely Judged;
1-outta-1 goes in either direction then,
depending how WE sinfull mortals
have lived, is where WE go for eternity:
Seventh-Heaven -or- the Abyss o'Misery.
Yes, dear, life’s extremely tough now;
yet, life’s extremely short now:
then, WE have the length and breadth of eternity
to consider where our decisions have placed U.S.
And Satan’s working overtime to steal your indestructible soul.
Don’t let that sly, smooth, sinfull Liar.
I choose Seventh-Heaven.
Choose.
