Guest Writers

After of few years online, we decided to get some other folks in the act. Being very selective at first we started with “Chick Shit for Chic Chicks” by Melissa Paternick. Then we figured it couldn’t get much worse, so we added “Psycho Sermons, ” by Bel Garion and “Paperback Writer” by P.S. Gifford. Brian Petre also included some insights of life on the road.
