It isn’t often I get the chance to sit down with a real author and just chat. The author of Notches stopped by this morning and talked to me about writing and poetry. I hope you enjoy. This may become a recurring event here if I can convince other authors to sit down for a chat.
Thanks for stopping by in what must be a busy schedule as an author with tens of books sold.
ME – thanks for having me. And that’s tens of copies around the world.
ME – one in England, one in Australia. like fifteen in the States. Slowly taking over the world.
Wow! That’s really something. Now I haven’t read your book, Matches
ME – Notches
That’s what I said
ME – you said matches.
Tomato potato. Awfully big diva already. A little success has gotten to your head
ME – I haven’t gotten any success
And you won’t with that kind of attitude. Where do you get your ideas from?
ME – life in general.
ME – over active imagination?
Is that a question?
ME – possibly
And it says here you write poetry?
ME – yes. a couple a day.
ME – for the most part.
Is it any good? Seems excessive.
ME – I don’t read it.
That makes two of us. Back to Matches
ME – Notches
Uh huh, that is what I said. It says here it is a collection?
ME – of short stories. And one poem.
Eww. Okay. Tell the readers a little about the stories in Matches.
ME – are you doing this on purpose?
ME – aggravating me?
No. Of course not. I’m a professional.
ME – the stories in Notches run the gamut. There is a historical piece told in letters from a man to his wife back East.
ME – (M Ennenbach seems to have grown angry for some reason at this point in the interview) and other tales about death, suicide, love, loss, humor
So Nachos is available now through Death’s Head Press?
ME – yes
Available on Amazon?
ME – are you being fucking serious? Did you do any fucking research? Yes. On Amazon. It’s a good book. 5 star average rating there and on Goodreads.
ME – do you even read?
No. Short attention span. I prefer television.
ME – clearly
I sense hostility.
ME – I sense stupidity
I know you are but what am I?
ME – this interview is over. Get your shit together.
You heard it hear first. M Ennenbach is a jerk with a book out. Nachos, from Death’s Head Press. A collection of letters or something. I sort of spaced out.
