It’s time to reveal the first blurb for Roses are Red, Violets are Stealing Loose Change from my Pockets While I Sleep! This one is from Lynn Mundell, co-editor of 100 Word Story):
David Atkinson’s writing resides smack between the surreal and the fantastic, with rabbits reading Bridget Jones’s Diary, a Heathrow Airport customs line for Americans located in a fish-and-chips kiosk, and Margaret Thatcher as a serial kidnapper. But what he writes about is firmly rooted in reality-the ways that society can get you by the throat and shake you; the insanity woven into the fabric of modern life. Reading [Roses are Red, Violets are Stealing Loose Change from my Pockets While I Sleep], you’ll laugh out loud while right next to you your ghost twin will read along, soberly, nodding in recognition.
