Today we're pleased to release the Tacky Goblin book trailer! This Saturday is Independent Bookstore Day, but most importantly, the official publication date of T. Sean Steele's novella Tacky Goblin, winner of the 2015 Wild Onion Novella Contest. Pre-order here!
"The enormous energy and the over the top subversive anarchy in Tacky Goblin ... is that of transformation. The book is a wonderful debut by a talented, comic writer."
About Tacky Goblin:
An aimless twenty-something struggles to make sense of reality after he moves to Los Angeles to live with his older sister. His legs are rotting, his apartment is haunted, and he’s in charge of taking care of a human baby that might actually be a dog. On top of it all, he has trouble making friends. Tacky Goblin blunders through particularly strange but familiar misadventures to remind us that, ultimately, learning to take care of yourself is hard.
To celebrate, join us at the Tacky Goblin Release Party:
