Review of Charactered Pieces by Caleb J. Ross
Writing that moves you is hard to find while wading through the debris of mainstream literature.
Caleb’s homespun flavor of modern tragedy will move you–surely as a swan dive into oncoming traffic.
Charactered Pieces might be compared to being in a bad relationship: you fall deeper and deeper in love as your heart breaks over and over again. You won’t forget these words, even if (for some ungodly reason) you wanted to.
All you really want is more.
Purchase Charactered Pieces, the masterful collection of short stories. This link also includes more fantastic reviews (in case you don’t believe mine).
This is actually “old” news, but Brandon Tietz has been sporting the following banner with a quote from my review of his book, Out of Touch. Kind of neat. Other big news in the world of BT to come.
At the risk of sounding ametuer, today marks a huge event in my life as a writer. The following link is to a poem I wrote a while back, published by a gutsy poetry editor over at the Oustsider Writer’s Collective (OWC).
This is the first time my work has been published. As an officially published writer, I’d like to thank you fan. Couldn’t have gotten this far without your support. May we both see many more published works.

Got my first rejection slip for Secondhand this afternoon! A generic note from The Seattle Review on a sixth of a piece of paper that is obviously a photocopy of some “master rejection page”. They were quick about it, too–response time was about half of the average wait from them. Building this collect is going to be a blast!
