Last year, I read and reviewed an unconventional book called The Ghosts of Nagasaki; it was poetic and philosophical. Today, I have the same author, Daniel Clausen, on the blog to share is new FREE e-book. Find out more about it!
What is the book?
The book is a humorous collection of essays and short stories. It’s also free! It’s a great book for anyone who has ever gotten a form rejection letter.
Are you seeking reviews?
Not in particular. If this book was your friend, it would be the kind of friend you found hanging around in a trailer park in a wifebeater, waist-deep in a kiddie pool, drinking a beer on a Tuesday afternoon.
He’s fun to be around for a little bit, just don’t let your friends catch you with him.
What’s the summary/ tag lines:
Have you ever faced rejection?
How about reejecttion?
This short story / essay collection looks at the challenges of being a writer, the challenges of being a human, and the challenges of being on the other side of a form rejection slip.
We regret to inform you that when you read this short story collection you will laugh, you will scream, but mostly you'll wonder how getting reejectted ever felt so good.
Who are you?
I’m the kind of guy Clark Kent ignores. I am humble and hardworking. Adulthood does not come easy to me. I don’t think I’m alone in this…
Also, I write fiction.
I’d love to do a sequel. But everything depends on getting the right title.
Reejecttion: the awakening
Inception-Reejecttion (Tag line: Be ready to experience the rejection within the rejection within the rejection)
Reejecttion 8: Die Daniel Die (Tagline: His story was so bad, they sent an assassin out to make sure he never wrote again).
Reejecttion vs. Predator
Top Ten Reasons to Read the Book:
You will get rejected - promise!
There are good short stories in between rejections

It’s an excellent stomach, back, and triceps workout
