Announcement by John King

Dear readers and listeners,

Today is not only my birthday, but also that of my first novel, Guy Psycho and the Ziggurat of Shame, out with Beating Windward Press. For those of you who have listened to my podcast awhile, this is the book I went to NYU to write.

Guy Psycho and the Ziggurat of Shame

This is an epic literary adventure in which an alcoholic lounge singer must re-enact the epic of Gilgamesh inside a mountain in Tennessee. Indiana Jones and Alan Quartermain, eat your hearts out.

I first met Guy back in the early oughts, in a story called, “Guy Psycho: Savior of Pop?”—and he keeps showing up for work in my brain.

His confessions have appeared in Bachelor Pad Magazine.

If this might be your jam, please consider supporting a poor writer.

With gratitude,


P. S. If you want to review this novel for a literary magazine or media entity you are affiliated with, please do let me know.
