That’s Right, I Wrote A Novel
Hello, prospective content consumer!
I’d like to
hawk you my book tell you about my comedic novel, Good Intentions.
It’s about an angel working at a heavenly bureaucracy that’s being “disrupted” by the smartphone revolution, and it contains many musings about how society is being ruined by a combination of our technologically-induced narcissism and a morally bankrupt professional-managerial class.
There’s also a character named Brucie, who’s a tree.
In any case, if you like my technical writing, then maybe you’ll like my creative writing. Please buy the book! (and read it, if you’re so inclined)
So Please Buy The Novel
Good Intentions is available at fine book stores everywhere, and by that, I mean Amazon. Only Amazon. Let’s all bow down to Amazon.
Blurb below if you’d like more information:
Starry Night. Crime and Punishment. WrestleMania X-Seven.
Have you ever pondered where works of art like these come from? Have you ever marveled at a beautiful simile, a clever metaphor, a kick-ass piledriver? Have you ever wondered how mere mortals — flesh-and-blood human beings — can create moments of such transcendence?
The short answer? They can’t. Not without some help.
Enter the Department of Inspirations, the heavenly bureaucracy in charge of inspiring human artistic achievement. From Van Gogh to Vince McMahon, the Department’s agents have inspired many of your most famous creators. More importantly, by interleaving hidden messages into the art you consume, they’ve helped you grow from a weak-willed marsupial offshoot into one that’s at least occasionally ethical.
But if you hadn’t noticed, times are changing.
The social media revolution is drowning you. Feeds of relentlessly optimized content are catering to your most aggressive and marsupial instincts. Put simply: You’re too busy retweeting hot takedowns and stirring up messy Facebook drama to experience transcendence, let alone contemplate any hidden messages.
Indeed, you’re so far gone that G., the manic deity in charge of Inspirations, has decided to ditch the dream of human enlightenment in favor of a new one: complacency.
But this decision has only quickened humanity’s apocalyptic spiral.
Now Agent Zeke, a low-level agent in the Department, must warn you before it’s too late…
