My name is Larson Blackburn. If anyone had written a fiction novel that mirrored my life over the past year, I would’ve called it “Science” fiction, or accused said author of being high on crack. . . but the truth is, I’d be the one in denial.
You see, through the most unlikely chain of events, it seems I’ve fallen in love with my nemesis. That’s right. The one and only Troy Babilonia, a.k.a. “Babu the Literary Critic.” Remember him? The one that attempted to ‘black ball’ my masterpiece of literary fiction and take me down with it?
Only the thing is, he failed and I succeeded. Now I’m trying to succeed in this relationship we have together. It’s always a challenge, but I’m the best thing that ever happened to Troy Babilonia!
My name is Troy Babilonia, and yes, I’m sure you follow my literary review column on the Bluffington Gazette: Babu’s Book Talk.
Long story short, one of the Indie Author’s I annihilated last year became so genuinely enamored with me that we managed to fall in love. Yes, I own L. Blackburn’s heart, and trust me, it isn’t always a bed of roses this relationship thing. But, it’s going on one year soon, and boy, do I have a surprise for him! The sparks will fly, that much you can count on.
Hello. My name is Ida Whatley. I’m the elderly neighbor of both Larson and Troy. That’s right, I’ve had a bird’s eye view of their shenanigans over the past six months. All I can say is . . . Oy!
