Rattle Tales Anthology 1 & 2 - Now as Kindle Edition

Rainy day and I'm re-reading the Rattle Tales Anthology 1, marveling at how good it is. Apart from my story Playing Horse about forbidden love, there's a funny story inspired by the Royal Wedding by Erinna Mettler, a sweet monster story by Joe Evans and a fantastic piece by Lonny Pop called Fake Plastic Flowers that makes you feel sick - in a good way. And there are 21 more stories just waiting to be read!

The good news is that Rattle Tales Anthology 2 has been out for a while and both anthologies are available as a Kindle Edition!

Rattle Tales is just growing and growing and I hope they'll do an event in Sweden one day!

I've become a Metaphor Wrestler!

It's not the muscles that count in this new art form and sport ... Metaphor wrestlers battle with words.

This weekend I took part in an exclusive workshop in Gothenburg that resulted in a show where eight wrestlers improvised metaphors on stage to the beat of a live band in a dark room.

More scary than taking part in a Poetry Slam, that's for sure. But what helps is that you create a wrestling character and I am Backpackia! And Backpackia is the thumb that was on its way to Thailand but ended up at the local supermarket ...

However Metaphor Wrestling itself is going to take over the world, you can look at some cool pictures of the wrestlers on the Metaphor Wrestling website.
