Coffee and Sugar: Excerpt

The ordinary and mundane had never been as appealing to him as it was right now; cleaning a floor, opening a can of vegetables, peeling the sticker off of the tomato sauce bottle, sweeping vomit, tucking his father into bed, watching the television or combing his hair, anything at all was what he would rather be doing and anywhere but here was where he wished he could be.

Coffee and Sugar Excerpt ₢2013

Joao saw them all though, every one of them. He saw how the rapists, junkies, drunks and vile torturous pigs put on their masks and became lawyers and teachers and preachers and prayers and mothers and fathers and judges and doctors and every single person in this entire city, in this whole wide world, every last one of them, they all had their own bastardised and vitiating hill, and they all looked scant and horribly naked under all their clothes and no amount of scouring would ever do away with the second skin of filth and decay of which they lathered and layered and made more perdurable in how they spent their wished upon days.

Amazon fascist stand over tactics - Amazon threaten to refuse the sale of my books

AMAZON THREATEN FREE ART COLLECTIVE
This morning I received an email from Amazon Kindle (KDP) threatening to remove my books from their store because they did a search on one of my books and found that I was providing the books free on man websites which apparently contravenes copyright issues and unless I provided sufficient explanation and a detailed list of where i published my book, they would refuse to sell my ebooks. Below is the list they demanded form me and my response:

Most of my work unfortunately is laden with editorial issues, ask Evie from Dark Matter.
There is nothing i can do on this regard.
I miss a lot when i am doing my own edit and I am emotionally unstable and usually have a mild breakdown at the end of a piece and want it published immediately. I rush things.
I need someone who doesn't to work with me, to be my left brain, whereas I create the art, I need this logical owl to see the issues and line everything up, to cut off the crusts and to make my art presentable.

I earn nothing from my writing. I give the entirety of my art for free and I need someone who can think that the art is more important than their ego or at least, more important than some jingling coins.

I need help !!!!!!!

Coffee and Sugar is almost complete and I will have to justly re-edit A Rising Fall and Utopian Circus and do a re-release to justify a cleaner finish. Down the line.

I am talking to you. You t…

nothing at all

Now is one of those moments where it scares me to think about all the other people out there who might just be feeling more emotionally perturbed than me. it's getting harder to wear that 'nice to see you' smile and not pick at my own eyelids. what choice do i have? my children call me daddy and they have yet to find any difficulties in any of this. and then some days i feel like the messenger of god. today isn't that day.

Coffee and Sugar

Joao smiled and tensed his hand and as he did, Eve tensed hers; entwining her fingers around his, curling the tips underneath so that they stroked at the palm of his hand so gently as if the skin on which she strummed were the nylon strings to his heart.

Excerpt: Coffee and Sugar

The mood in the café was electric. People were pushing over one another, waving crumpled notes patriotically and shouting short sharp commands to get the attention of Joao who; in the midst of frantic baristas taking money, scribbling notes and confusing orders, sat like a thinking monk, his hands entrenched in a jar of coffee, looking with his shut eyes into the life of an old man with missing teeth, scruffy hair, torn shorts, a rather large and oddly shaped middle toe, a nervous twitch on the muscle in the right side of his neck, an uneven beard that looked more like the burnt out scrub ion a desert dune, a runny nose, a virulent cough, a lazy left eye, a crazy right other and a hand full of one cent coins in his clenched fist; a week’s work that he held tighter in his left hand than a mother would, her child through a thunderstorm.

A Rising Fall Review by Evie Kendal - Dark Matter Fanzine

AR1S1NGFALL (“A Rising Fall”) by C. Sean McGeedystopiannovelreviewscience fictionAdd comments Feb202013
AR1S1NGFALL (“A Rising Fall”) by C. Sean McGee a review by Evie Kendal CSM Publishing AR1S1NGFALL is the first book in a dystopian trilogy entitled CITY: aliteraryconcerto by author and artist C. Sean McGee. It is set in a dystopian future that, unlike the standard post-apocalyptic wasteland often depicted in such texts, is actually a vast nothingness of the soul. The inhabitants of this world suffer from what is described as both a physical and metaphysical “famine” – the poisoned soil limiting food production while a lack of direction and purpose plagues their minds to distraction. People are seen queuing in the dirty streets for scraps of information that are “rationed” to them each day to think upon; meanwhile the human race is degrading and descending into cannibalism and violence. It is believed the state of humanity has come about due to the absence of the “empathy gene” i…

Excerpt: Coffee and Sugar

Eve smiled as she danced in the light breeze, her fingers catching pockets of air and pulling them with her as she turned on a dime, her heels, high in the air as her body rested on top of her toes and she sprang; like a wildflower, up into the height of the sun, so high that she took Joao’s breath with her and his heart paused as he held sight of her floating like an angel, drifting in the warm summer air, the sea of content unto which he thirsted to drink

Epiphany: coffee and sugar

Epiphany today whilst doing lat pull downs. The gym is my temple where i communicate with the universal orators of story. They put ideas in my head. Much like Muhammad.

I have the ending for Coffee and Sugar. Different to what i had originally thought. More biblical but ok, it is what I see.

Back to writing this afternoon.

This once again will show another turn in my writing and story telling.

I am excited, without all of the emotional show.

Take Risk and Take Care,

Humans can be kind

Hi Sean, just read 'Heaven is full of Arseholes'. Really funny andpoignant too. Great writing feller, keep it up! 

Regards, Franc
"Email I received just now. I've said it before and maybe it is a fact of my growing emotional dysfunction and mental instability but a few kind words jingle so much louder than a few coins in my pocket. i feel like a blind and curious Literary Sperm Donor, quite unsure of the effect of my creation. I have referred many time writing to Literary Masturbation, an individual self gratifying and stimulating process, but it good to know i'm doing it right every now and then. And at this point I would like to reiterate the giant fuck you to literary agents worldwide. Have a great weekend. More Coffee and Sugar writing tomorrow and more updates to follow"

Coffee and Sugar Excerpt

“Are we going to your special place?” asked Joao, his voice gurgling at first as he swallowed a lump in his throat, sounding more like a concerned Muppet than an excited lover.

The Nazi's Coffee - Coffee and Sugar Excerpt

These symbols took him from being a young child, embossed in torment and ridicule, trampled by the abandon of his mother and father and preyed upon by his need for his adoring grandmother; always being the insect having its wings and limbs torn from its body, to being a young man; confident and strong, a leader, powerful, listened, learned, well spoken, assuring, domineering, hardly a victim, always the threat; a king amongst men.

Wanted: Copy editor / reviewer / Nice Human

I need the help of a copy editor or whatever title you want to assume, I will endorse for you.

As you know, there are many slight errors here or there in my published works. Mainly because the writer develops domestic blindness with their work, in that, the sub conscious when confronted with missing words will infact introduce these words into the conscious mind to make up the context and flow of the story; why? Because it is a self generating and supporting mechanism of the mind to generate and correlate understanding also, because i wrote it, my brain knows which word to choose.

So there have been in the three published works so far, some grammar issues and double wording of articles and conjunctions. though this doesn't bother me in the slightest. Anyone can have pretty teeth, but take the note of Shane MacGowan. you don't need pretty teeth to tell a fancy tale. The missing words though bug me, which takes me to my request.

I write and publish all of the work for free and …

Writing Update

Carnaval is nearly toast for another year. The Brazillian method of adopting holidays for every tradition is astounding. We would have been with the developed majority years ago were it not for the exorbitant amount of holidays each and every month.

Carnaval had me taking time off work and writing. Exercising intensely in the gym and running countless kilometers with my dogs and spending the rest of the days like a frayed wire, lying in a heap on my bed while my daughter used my lifeless body for a spring board.

Monday I am back to writing and Coffee and Sugar is speeding along well. I predict maybe that the writing should be done mid March. As I said previously, I am taking a lighter approach to writing now than I did with A Rising Fall and Utopian Circus.

That said, I am still writing at a pace that makes me one of the most productive writers in the world today. Pitted against my rigorous work out regime, my family a=and animal commitments and working 15 hours per day; this title o…

In response to a request for a synopsis

So I do get asked, why are there no blurbs for your books? How do I know if its good or not?

First of all, you shouldn't be asking anyone else how you feel. Read it, its ok, gauge yourself.

I was asked for a Synopsis for Heaven is Full of Arseholes, a short story of 9,459 words. I can't make a short story any shorter. It's pretty difficult to write in such a defined space, to write a smaller 2 line piece would just be an insult to the story and your creative intelligence and wanting imagination.

Below is a link to a previous post i did on this issue.

This is the closest I come to blurbs:
A RISING FALL BACK COVER:
"wrong side turn over. don't live your life in summary"

UTOPIAN CIRCUS BACK COVER:
"tis better a story remain untold than be castrated in brief for the sake of being sold"

HEAVEN IS FULL OF ARSEHOLES BACK COVER:
"what does this have to do with god?"

Genesis by Nacho Cerda

Image
For those who don't know his work, take a moment to experience Genesis from Spanish artist Nacho Cerda; the final installment in his death trilogy. This is a beautiful, sensual, distilling and desiccating piece. This was one more of those accidental finds that sped me along to this artistic and philosophical curve i find myself carving with my own hands. I would love to work with him so if any of you have his number.   - C. Sean McGee




GENESIS BY NACHO CERDA

Circle of Life - Toddlers _ Excerpt: Coffee and Sugar ₢2013

“Now when a baby gets a bit older he or she becomes a toddler. As soon as they get those legs working they’re running around grabbing whatever they can and generally, breaking it. To mum and dad, causing a ruckus and making a mess, to the toddler, they’re just having fun, exploring, learning, being. So as soon as a baby gets its legs, it goes from being a kitty cat to a puppy dog. You leave that toddler alone for a second in a room and when you come back, there’ll be paint all over the ceiling, your prized books will all be scribbled upon, cups broken, computers pulled apart, wallets devoured and in the centre of the room, there’ll be a bare bummed little walking terror telling you that they didn’t do it; just like little puppies, learning their limits, sharpening their teeth, pulling things apart, having some fun." 

- FATTS on the circle of life - Toddlers   (Coffee and Sugar)₢213

Excerpt: Fatts (Coffee and Sugar)

"And like the cow, the grown up is given freedom, democracy, shopping malls, pornography, churches, theme parks, rock shows, football and choice. Give a man freedom and he’ll do nothing with it. You wanna make a man strong, you take away his will to fight. You wanna hear him scream, you force his mouth shut but if you want him to be stupid and still just like a cow, take down the fences, put a bell around his neck and make him think he can leave if he wants to"

Baby You're a Rich Man

This track was written by a dear friend of mine, Adam J Keane, the musician responsible for A Rising fall and Utopian Circus albums and a bandmate of mine from Hypercenter and my old conspiring roommate.

This is a cover of The Beatles' Baby You're A Rich Man recorded by Adam as The B-Tools (engineering joke)

This song is the inspiration for COFFEE AND SUGAR which I am currently writing.

Excerpt: Coffee and Sugar

These souls were not to save. They were being saved and the whores who hobbled about with infection drawn upon their skin and tragedy upon their youths, were merely cunting priests whose moral servitude was to invite the devil between their thighs and gaping mouths and to swallow whole; like an open drain, the residue that built upon normal men, threatening to colour them badly, of which they must scrape off of their skin and cleanse the avenues of their minds in a storm of debauching indecency.

CHAPTER 0
“Get over here. Come on, come here little donkey. Look at him; doesn’t he look just like a donkey? He has his mother’s genes; long useless arms, hands like a little girl. And look at those fingers; they’d snap just trying to grip a toothbrush. Hey donkey, bring your daddy a drink” The Bishop said in a drunken slur to Joao whilst chafing some passers-by, rocking waywardly on his white plastic chair; the thin legs bending under the strain of his heaving upper body that twisted and turned with the eschewal of his foul exuberance. From behind the bar came Joao, walking with sullen eyes and full hands; balancing a rickety metal tray holding a large bottle of cachaça and a single glass. As he crossed from the bar to where his father sat by the entrance to the small church, he patiently and obsessively counted every tile, …
