Charlie Marx, like many of us, enjoys a good moan from time to time. This particular series of moans and groans resulted in a two and a half week period of him writing this novel until he got it all out of his system. The result is this collection of hilarious views on life, the universe and charity shop charges. Helped by some characters in his head we travel into the mind of this disturbed individual and see the world as it just might be. Along with famous, and infamous, people in situations you will certainly not have imagined them in before, you will find characters like an educationally-deprived scarecrow, an ambitious but ultimately disappointed 5 note and a series of improbable and improper pensioners. Within this novel you will find out God s real name, what the difference is between a hill and a mountain, as well as why Charlie went all the way to Turkey to end up in Amsterdam."

Short Story Press Presents Guide My Career by Jasmine Bowen • Is an actor’s life as glamorous as it seems? • Avion and Jared, two leads in a new historic play, can barely stand each other, let alone stand the horrid historical play they are both starring in. • The story of Elizabeth Woodville and King Edward is well known, but they can’t seem to capture each character in their acting. • Each of the actors in this play is a Blist actor, headed nowhere fast. • Reviews on previews are terrible and they don’t expect to get far. • When strange things start to happen, on and off set, they begin to question who is really in control. • Dangerous accidents push them to their limit. • It’s about standing your ground, believing in your dream, and overcoming obstacles. • These actors believe in their dream so strongly that they are willing to put their lives in danger in order to continue this production. • They find, as long ago, that strength and love come from the oddest places and can overcome. • “No, no, no, we aren’t people. We play people. There’s a difference” • Each of these actors is now propelled towards fame; but at what cost, as their lives flash in front of them? Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.

Why write? The answer is two-fold: For the love of it; or because you have something to say or show. We are a sharing species; a storytelling species. If there is a story (or hopefully, stories) inside you, by all means write. More important learn to write well. In each of these books, I deconstruct a single story to exemplify the principles behind good storytelling, as well as weaknesses in parts that could have been better written.
