Different by Frank Mundo is FREE this Weekend

You read it right. My book Different is free this Saturday through Monday, March 25-27 on Kindle. Check it out.

If you choose to read it, please share your review on GR and Amazon. Love it or hate it, I appreciate your time and your opinion.

Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Different-Frank-Mundo-ebook/dp/B00H7GAJTM

Different is an illustrated novella for adults. It’s in the Urban Fantasy or Contemporary Fantasy genres. There are six reviews on GR, and four on Amazon: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19454182-different

Summary: If you like those “peculiar” children Tim Burton is about to make famous, you might like Different.

One morning 12-year-old Gregory Gourde wakes up in his bed with an impossible new feature: his head has become a watermelon. We follow Gregory down a rabbit hole of sorts to a new world and an audacious exploration of what it really means to be different in this dark yet humorous nod to Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” and Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

The illustrations in Different are woodcut-style black-and-white drawings (after the famous Alice in Wonderland art) by Keith Draws, who also illustrated my other book, The Brubury Tales (Illustrated Edition) and the cover of my short-story collection, Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy (who, incidentally, makes an appearance in Different).

*Adult language and content. Not for children under 13 or 14.

I hope you enjoy Different.

Classical Carousel Reviews The Brubury Tales

I am honored and so grateful for the amazing reviews and responses to my book The Brubury Tales that continue to come in.

Just today, an in-depth book review of The Brubury Tales was posted at Classical Carousel, an exceptional literary blog that reviews classic books by dead authors almost exclusively. But, because the site was already taking on  Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, The Brubury Tales (my homage to Chaucer’s amazing work) was chosen to be included in a side-by-side reading challenge of old and new! That decision alone was a huge honor and an awesome reminder to me of how lucky I am to keep finding an audience for such an unusual book — based on a work that means so very much to me.

You can read the full review of The Brubury Tales here.

And please be sure to check out the full reviews of The Canterbury Tales as well, and all the many Classical Carousel reviews of some of the best books by some of the best dead writers ever.

The Brubury Tales is available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon.

 

The Brubury Tales is an ambitious homage to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It takes Chaucer’s story and frame to Los Angeles just after the riots, where seven security guards on the graveyard shift swap tales in a hilarious storytelling competition for Christmas vacation time.

Different by Frank Mundo is FREE today at Amazon

Yesterday was my 7th wedding anniversary with my beautiful wife, Nancy.
Today, I’m feeling blessed, so my book “Different” is ‪FREE‬ for everyone to download at Amazon.
Here’s the link in the US: http://www.amazon.com/Different-Frank-Mundo-ebook/dp/B00H7GAJTM

*It’s also free on Amazon UK and all Amazon sites.
I hope you download it and give it shot. It’s definitely an usual book, and a little dark and ‪‎different‬ (not for the younger kids less than 13 years old), but it has a lot of heart, too.

Check it out. Check out the reviews. Maybe it’s something you’ll want to read over the holidays. The best part is, if you don’t like it, it won’t cost you a thing.

I know there’s a billion books out there, so I’m always honored when someone chooses to read my work.

If you do choose to download the book and give it a shot, and you like the book (or don’t like it), please share your review on amazon for other potential readers. I really appreciate your time and effort — and your support of my work.

“Aubade,” New Poem by Frank Mundo Published by Poetic Diversity

Honored that my new poem “Aubade” (which is an aubade and a sonnet) is published in the latest issue of poeticdiversity.
An aubade is a morning love song (as opposed to a serenade, which is in the evening), or a song or poem about lovers separating at dawn. The sun is often addressed directly in this poem.
The poem was written earlier this year for my wife.
