“If you've ever clocked in your time staring at cubicle walls, sitting through monotonous, agonizing meetings, or having to explain the most basic functions of a spreedsheet program, this story is for you.” –Andy Laughton, Silverthought Press
Fans of fluffy romance novels and that all too familiar, over hyped, edge of the seat crap should steer clear. This is life at its most jaded. David S. Grant presents Bleach|Blackout, a story in double novel form about New Year’s Eve, drugs, sex, the corporate crunch and the inevitable unpleasantness of life and death.
“Davd S. Grant is very talented. He speaks of a culture that I cannot relate too. However, that does not mean it does not exist. Grant demonstrates the world that young business adults face each day. The action moves fast. There are drugs, alcohol, hangovers, and a desperate desire to live a full life. If you enjoy hard-hitting, brutal stories, you will enjoy Bleach/Blackout.” – Debra Gaynor
“Unexpected plot twists abound and make each of the stories truly remarkable.” – Elaine Raterman
Bleach opens during the last 60 seconds of 2003 in a bathroom where a girl lay dying and a jaded 30-year-old named Jeremy, who navigates the reader through the endless repulsiveness of the world, watches. Today is Friday and he is heading back home, but will he make it back to New York?
Blackout picks up two years after Bleach in Las Vegas complete with strippers and crack cocaine. The ride home is blurry and the next morning in Los Angeles brings a surprise when Stoner’s friends, Chip and Jeremy, wake to find police officers and a dead body they are allegedly responsible for. The initial thought is “What would Steven Tyler do?” Underneath the stories of hangovers and death, Blackout is a story about living. Living for the moment and having a story to tell.
“Sometimes these books read like an encyclopedia article on all the things your parents told you never to do, but it's Grant's ability to insert absolutely hilarious quips and pop culture references and ridiculous situations into this play by play account of wreckless youth that makes it so very worthwhile.”. – Andy Laughton, Silverthought Press
“Grant writes like an artist paints. There is a lot left to interpretation. Is this book for everyone? No. It is for those who truly understand the artistic side to writing.” - Stephanie Rollins
