On Being A Shambles

Bert Shambles, the main character in DEAD STOCK, has some identity issues:

Then there’s my name. It feels like a curse, like I’ll never be able to be anything good or special with a name like Shambles. According to my mom it was originally Chambliss, but changed when my ancestors came over from France in the 1800s. For some reason none of them ever thought to change it back. Maybe it was some kind of weird French pride thing, I don’t know.

Dead Stock will be published later in 2013 by Cozy Cat Press.
