"What'cha lookin' at, bookworm?"


There are dedicated pages to each of our published novels, with links below. Metarules of the SMF is a novel of gang warfare. To Fail With Flying Colors is a novel on psychopathology and extreme aberrant behavior. In Jim Meirose's innovative novel, Sunday Dinner with Father Dwyer, two sailors on a container-ship bound for Shanghai are a captive audience to a bizarre cooking-show hosted by defrocked priest, Father Dwyer. Also aboard with them: their fears, their guilt, their memories... a man in a barrel... and you, the reader, of course! If you read these, or any of our future publications, we look forward to seeing your reviews on Amazon or Goodreads.
