My eighth book, Die You Doughnut Bastards, is now available. It’s a collection of stories, poems, and illustrations. I started writing it during a marathon in Voodoo Doughnut Too in 2009. Then they kicked me out and I had to walk the five miles home in the cold and dark. Now when I see doughnuts, I want to kill them.
If DYDB receives 50 reviews by Thanksgiving, I’m getting a mohawk, and YOU get to vote on the color. You can review it on Amazon, your blog, or for any print publication or website. One review gets you one vote. Gold, pink, green, black, and everything in between. All colors are fair game. Help me make this very important life decision. Help yourself by reading more sad stories.
Here’s the back cover description:
The bacon storm is rolling in. We hear the grease and sugar beat against the roof and windows. The doughnut people are attacking. We press close together, forgetting for a moment that we hate each other.
In Die You Doughnut Bastards, amputees, lonely young people, and talking animals struggle for survival against the freakish whims of nature. A typewriter made of fetuses is the source of woe for an expecting couple. A girl with a glass jaw hides an otherworldly secret. A demonic loner goes to a birthday party in Hell. You’ll encounter a killer in a marsupial mask, a prison for anorexics, haunted pancakes, and a songwriter with a cult following.
Surreal prose poems give way to personal accounts of alienation and modern love. Vegetarian narwhals are sold at the supermarket. And in a city that might be your own, zombie doughnuts are rising up. Kill yourself before they kill you. Or just kill yourself.
Featuring original illustrations in the style of Daniel Johnston, Die You Doughnut Bastards is the latest way to drown, brought to you by Wonderland Book Award-winning author Cameron Pierce.
