ADAM MITCHELL’S NEW BOOK
“BEER, WOMEN AND THE WRITTEN WORD”
IS OUR FEATURED BOOK FOR SEPTEMBER
WE SEE A FUTURE BEST SELLER HERE!
This book follows the path of Mitchell’s semi-autobiographical alter ego, Harry Block.
Through the highs and lows of a job he hates, impending parenthood, the trials, and misadventures of redemption, and a rather long and successful in alcoholism.
All the while dealing with the struggles of the written word and writer’s block (no pun intended)
“Beer, Women, and the Written Word is a slice of life with all its grit and grime, hope for a better future, and the determination to overcome the unexpected obstacles fate loves to throw in our way, and a denouement so twisted I wanted to scream.”
“Put aside your inhibitions and sensitivity and dive into a book whose writing has been compared to James Joyce and Henry Fielding.” Between the Beats
Cover Design: Rachel Bostwick
On Sept. 11, 2001, Mike Dobbs’ life was forever changed. Reeling from his nightmare experience in New York’s subway as the twin towers collapsed, he retreats from his high-power Wall Street life to his run-down country house. Coping with PTSD he resorts to single malt Scotch to dull the memories of death and destruction. Soon he is embroiled in the life of Eileen Benoit and her 7-year old daughter Megan as they flee Eileen’s abusive ex-husband. Suddenly Mike is thrown into a world he knows nothing about, and he is forced to answer the question, how far would you go for someone you love?

Looking for a horror movie based on real life? This selection from Book Riot is a good list to start you off. How many of the books have you read? Have you seen the movies?
There’s something so much scarier about knowing that you’re watching horror movies based on true stories. I know with me personally, any home invasion movie has me sleeping with two knives, one for each hand, and a string of bells across every egress route. Maybe even a blowdart booby trap. But I digress. I think…
How many have you read? This list is from Book Riot.
Do you ever feel a tad claustrophobic here on Earth? At Book Riot, Jenn Northington recommends 50 works of speculative fiction set in space “in all its mystifying, occasionally terrifying, really freaking huge glory.”
