Story Behind the Story

Initially, I started writing WTH?! when I was in high school, shortly after reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I imagined the hero, Bubba, as Arthur Beeblebrox’s redneck American cousin.

For the last few months, WTH?! has been my “fun” alternative whenever I come down with a wicked case of Writer’s Block. And that happens enough that WTH?! has become a novel, all on it’s own.

But I’m not sure if this story will ever see the light of day. The style and storyline are very different from Breaking Gravity and Breaking Destiny. I don’t want to confuse or disappoint or, worse, annoy my readers.

The jury is still out on what I will do, ultimately, with this story, but I see three distinct possibilities. One, when I finish I could stick it in a drawer forever. Two, I could put this story on my website as a free bonus for anybody who joins Club Mitty (because if it sucks, it’s free so bite me). Three, I could publish under a new pen name.

I dunno. If you read the preview chapter, I’d love to hear what you think.

Btw, if you didn’t get the “Arthur Beeblebrox” reference above, then maybe you haven’t read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? If you have not read that book, I *highly* recommend you fix that problem, right now!
