Bad boys? Word.

Along with the endlessly magnetic Victor David Giron and Mark S. Brand, both This Podcast Will Change Your Life podcastees, here and here, respectively, we were recently invited to read and talk books at the quite wonderful Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore out in the Forest Park. Along with getting to meet owner Augie Alesky who quite rocks, we also had the chance to talk with books blogger Helen Kossler, who also rocks, and who has decided to collectively deem us as writers of "bad boy books." That is first, for us anyway, and that is awesome, so big thanks Helen for that. For the rest of you, please do take a look, please enjoy some excerpt and please feel free to comment on which celebrity referenced below might be matched with which "bad boy" author.

"All three of these guys have intense day jobs and personal commitments with wives and children but they long for the days when they were footloose and fancy free. Their longing seems almost comical to someone old enough to be their mother. I mean I want to shake them and say, “Welcome to the rest of your life! Responsibility isn’t glamorous but it beats the alternative, which is to be a slacker forever.” These are the literary equivalents of Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn and Matthew McConaughey. Charming but still wondering if Peter Pan had it right."

I hope she meant that your protagonist is the literary equivalent of Owen Wilson, and not that you are. Otherwise, them's fightin' words.
