My First Novel: Ouch by Pug Grumble

Howdy folks! 

The time has finally come! My first novel, Ouch, is out in stores!

Kindle $3.95:

Paperback $12.95: 

Ouch is definitely a bit more out there than Farlaine, but I might be even more proud of it! It took me years to write and revise and edit and polish, but I'm confident I'm putting out a book that's as good as I can make it. The subject matter may not be for everybody, but I think the writing is top-notch!

In honor of the book's release I also decided to throw together a new website,, which will act as more of an umbrella for my different projects. It doesn't have much on it for now, but I hope to add to it as time passes. If you want to read a chapter of Ouch, it's posted there.

I'll continue to leave the website up and update it with appearances and even occasionally post a blog entry, but with the series completed there's only so much I have to write about Farlaine these days:)

So please consider bookmarking and keeping up to date on any future projects through my mailing list. And consider buying a copy of my new book!

What's it like? Imagine Stephen King and Neil Gaiman riding a narcoleptic porcupine to a Fight Club. 
That's the vibe:)

Here's the jacket copy for anyone who's curious:

Ouch by Pug Grumble
A Comical and Quirky Tale About a Masochist, a Sadist, and a Klutz

Sylvester's got a bit of a thing for pain. In the silliest of ways, he enjoys it. He likes splinters and stubbed toes, pizza burns and ice cream headaches.

He’s dating the perfect girl in Felicia, a sadistic siren who torments any who wander within reach. The kinda girl who sharpens doorknobs and electrifies jukeboxes.

But when Felicia goes to jail, Sylvester can’t help but run into Natalie, a colossal klutz who topples into everything. The kinda girl who twists her ankle on the toilet and gets injured by plastic reindeer.

It's the start of something fun, at least until Felicia gets out of prison.
