You all like things are funny, good and free, don’t you? Of course you do, who doesn’t, nobody I want to know, that’s who.
Well if funny, flippin’ good and free and three things you look for in a book, then look no further because I have what you’re after, Mirth Defects by Clint Forgy.
I read and reviewed this book a while ago (the review is currently my most popular post, by a long margin and can be read here) and consider it the best indie book I’ve read all year; it’s filled with the funniest anecdotes you’ll find.
It’s not on sale yet, but if you’re interested in getting your hands on a copy, just nip on over to http://clintforgy.com/books/ where the author is very kindly offering up free copies to visitors.
A newborn boy begins the search for his soul mate.
From the day he was born, JD Ferguson knew what was missing: his soul mate. Mirth Defects, the prequel to The Seduction of Granny, is a fiction novel about the early years of JD Ferguson, his brother Bob, their buddies Gasser Jameson and Tiny Steele, and the adventures they experience growing up in the fictional town of Roadapple Ridge, Iowa.
I heartily recommend you pop on over to http://clintforgy.com/books/ and take advantage of Clint’s generosity, especially if you like reading about tales of childhood and growing up, trains, and boys with more interest in having fun than behaving.
Just got this today, but I’m so backlogged it’ll be 2235 before I start reading it.
Then again, a light, fun read would be therapeutic – might have to bump it up the queue.
I know that feeling, there’s always more to read than there’s time for, and too much stuff getting in the way of the reading. I do recommend bumping this one up though, I’m trying to fit in the sequel amongst the many things I have going on, looking forward to getting to it.
