Gone Too Soon

My novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom has been discontinued. It's true. It is no longer available for purchase. Due to certain conflicts I don't care to disclose here, my partnership with Aqueous Books has been dissolved.

I do want to wish the Aqueous authors all the best. I hope your experience will be better than mine.

That being said, I also want to thank everyone who supported this book. Your thoughts, words, and encouragement made it, and continue to make it, all worthwhile. Thank you. You know who you are.

For now I'll leave you with some awesome snippets from some awesome reviews by some fucking awesome people. And tremendous thanks to the gentlemen of Dark Sky Magazine for holding a Greasy giveaway today. To the winners, and to everyone who has a copy, sharing is a good thing.

Pass that Grease on.

“To call Grease Stains a love story is really to sell Bosworth short, and your own self (yeah I went there). Simple love is something for third graders, not even a 1987 sitcom presents love as simple. There needs to be lust, a bit of a mess, and a great divide.”

—Matt Debenedictis, author and proprietor of Safety Third Enterprises. Read Matt's entire review HERE


 It’s the best single-sitting novel[la] I’ve read since Shane Jones’s Lightboxes.

Brian Allen Carr, author of Short Bus (forthcoming from Texas Review Press)


....Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom will return. It'll just be wearing a different jacket.
