Failing Upwards


About the Book

Failing Upwards is about mistakes, errors, and accidents — some depressing, many humorous, others perspective altering. It would be an egregious fabrication to say I had imagined I would ever do anything like what takes place in the following stories a decade ago. I have no fucking idea how I ended up here — I have no fucking idea where I will end up next. I only hope it will make for a great fucking story.

Failing Upwards will be available in paperback ($9.99) and ebook ($4.99) formats at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and other book retailers May 31, 2015.
