hello i love transgressive fiction

pre-order industrial divinity, my standalone transgressive fiction debut! i’m thrilled to finally share this novel with you and am eternally grateful to nuno moreira for his cover, as well as editor michelle hope for her keen eye–and for her generous willingness to forego the proceeds of the editing process in exchange for donating it directly to several charities. and i guess m.f. sullivan deserves a little credit for the typesetting. šŸ˜‰ anyway check this new release out. this one is for fans of chuck palahniuk, j.g. ballard, hubert selby jr., ryu murakami, chandler morrison, and anybody who generally likes splatterpunk, transgressive or bizarro fiction. fans of dottie for you are also particularly urged to check out industrial divinity.

PRE-ORDER INDUSTRIAL DIVINITY TODAY!

Once upon a time lived a woman who was immortal but not invulnerable. This is the story of everything that happened after she discovered that fact. This is the story of a virus. It is the story of a country that is afraid of change. This is the story of a woman who becomes a sadomasochistic performance artist called “The Degenetrix” during a time when the human race is more isolated than ever before.

This is the story of the Degenetrix and the career she built by mutilating herself on the Internet for the pleasure of strangers, of stalkers, and of a mysterious benefactor who showers her with wealth but refuses to reveal his identity. This is the story of love during pandemic, of alienation in an alienated world. This is the story of pain and of lust and of the human mind.

But don’t worry. This is a happy story, and you are permitted to feel happy while you read it. Empathy is the greatest of all human virtues and the human race has been put on this planet called “Earth” so as to learn it.

Such is the will of spider-mother.

hello i love elizabeth bedlam: other author spotlight fridays

maybe not every friday but some fridays i’d like to shine a light on other independent and/or small press authors who i think are amazing and who i wish i’d known about years ago. most of these authors will be free on kindle unlimited or selling shorter titles for between $.99 and $2.99. let me start this adventurous column off by recommending that (in addition to my own works, of course, which you will enjoy if you like elizabeth bedlam and all of which are free on kindle unlimited at this link) you take a peek at horrotica pioneer elizabeth bedlam, the queen of b-movie horror erotica and an author i think every horror fan should read. and comedy fans. and erotica fans. basically, if you like ed wood, pulp fiction in general, puppet combo games and other vintage horror-inspired media, transgressive fiction, or just a fun fucked-up erotica story far from your usual kindle store bullshit, i would strongly encourage you to check out the one and only elizabeth bedlam. not only that but her productivity is phenomenal and i’m so jealous i’d like to cut off her precious hands and try all sorts of experiments to get their magic out for my own use. look at some of these great titles you’re missing out on:

just look at those titles. look at those covers. oh my god. these aren’t even my favorites and i swear every time i look they just get better and better. i love everything about them. i love the aesthetic effect and i love the concepts and have i mentioned i love her titles? holy shit. if they aren’t enough to convince you to invest fifteen minutes in reading one of her amazing shorts for free on kindle unlimited (follow this link) then you just have no sense of humor or are generally uncool and i don’t think i can help you. but if you wish horror and erotica could both stop taking themselves so fucking seriously for at least the length of a short story, please read elizabeth bedlam. if you have even the slightest iota of a sense of humor and love of kitsch, you’ll be super glad you did.

and also read me. regina watts. whose works including the horrotica cannibal love story dottie for you can be found here.

if you would like to be considered for an other author fridays post, talk to me about trading blogs, or are interested in exchanging reviews, you may do so through a message to publicity@paintedblindpublishing.com with ATTN: Regina in the title. i’ll consider everybody but i have peculiar tastes as u may be aware if u kno my work. xxxx
