Anonymous asked: Hi dan! I just finished bartender and loved it! Do you have plans to write more fiction in the future?
Thanks stranger! This will serve as my opportunity to promote the dumb, typo-filled novella I wrote called Bartender, back in college, before I started working for Cracked. It’s an occasionally cringe-worthy action novel that was written more as a love letter to my two friends, Joe and Mike, and my big brothers (and also alcoholism). Completely rewriting it has always been on my to-do list (20,000 words done so far!), but it’s low on that list because it’s such a silly little thing that only like nine people would be interested in reading. I wanted to have it finished so that I could release it for free as an e-book for anyone who bought my next book, How to Fight Presidents, but I didn’t get my act together in time. One day I’ll get it to a good place, but not anytime soon.
I would love to write more fiction, but with all the excitement going on at Cracked right now and the business of promoting How to Fight Presidents looming over my shoulder, I don’t know when exactly I’ll have time. It’s insane to me that my very talented coworkers David Wong and Robert Brockway manage to do basically the same job I’m doing while also writing incredible fiction on the side. Or, insane isn’t the word. Infuriating. That’s it.
