I swear to fuck…anyone can get a book deal. Me, a natural born writer? Nope. I seem to be the only dude who can’t bag a book deal, and I’m fucking tired of it.
Even one of the chicks from Butcher Babies, Carla Harvey, has a novel coming out. And on my birthday, no less.
The novel is called “Death And Other Dances,” and Harvey recently said it “is a story about the human connection. And how touch connects us all. It’s about loneliness and how in today’s digital age we are more connected yet more disconnected since we don’t actually interact face to face.”
“I worked hospice and funeral homes and I was also a dancer for years I and I saw a correlation between customers at the clubs and also my patients in hospice. I mean, most of the customers I met at the clubs were just lonely and didn’t really have anyone at home. And in addition, a lot of the hospices patients I took care of seemed kind of abandoned by their families as well. And working in these environments, I just came to the conclusion that everyone wants pretty much the same basic thing; everybody wants to be touched, everybody wants to be acknowledged, everybody wants to be loved. We all go to different lengths to find that love in our lives… and that’s what the novel is about. So far everyone who has read it loves it…so I can’t want for it to come out.”
Sounds like easy reading.
