I need a dominatrix to force me to my knees

June 12, 2009

Tom Waits and Charles Bukowski Fistfight in Hell (the ebay inspired novel that I blog about here) is coming along. Very soon I will want to find a publisher interested in a strange, twisted, sad novel with a little internet buzz behind it. If you run or work for an indie press (or want to start one) email me at nathanctyree@gmail.com —

put something about Waits or Bukowski in the subject line.

Don’t make me beg.

A tiny bit of that buzz is here

What’s all this then

Tom Waits and Charles Bukowski Fistfight in Hell will be a novel. This novel will contain a character based on the winner of an eBay auction. You can read more about that at http://ebaythenovel.wordpress.com/ or http://nathantyree.wordpress.com/

On this blog I will keep a diary of the process of creating the book at getting it into print. In this first post all I have to offer are some random notes that I have made. They follow:

This is not a remake of rio bravo

Alcoholic loser
dead beat
sex addict
Friend (don’t know him yet- auction still going) tries to save deadbeat
pro wrestling on small scale
tragic back story
camus
sartre
dread
maybe some poems and lists and stuff
first person
henry chinaski shows up. – – maybe they go to a reading
why do I think Tao lin is in this???
road trip?
funeral?
metaphor heavy
lots of sex
some violence
boots
whiskey discussions
defenestration
sindee???
secondary characters behave like ghosts
