Hello, everybody, I'm Brendan Detzner. I write short stories, novels, and other stuff, curate the monthly Bad Grammar podcast featuring work by other writers (as well as my own sometimes), and participate in events in and around Chicago. I've had my work published in a few different venues now, but I've never had a collection of my own, and in the process of doing readings and other things I've often found myself in the position of being face to face with someone who's interested in my work and would like to buy something, and of having nothing to offer them.
To change that, I'm putting out a short story collection. It's called "Scarce Resources". A limited "Zero Edition" version of the book is already out, and the final edition with jacket blurbs and thank-yous to all the fine people who contributed to this project will be released in August. To make the book as widely available as I can to bookstores and online vendors like Amazon, to order a print run big enough to make the book nice and inexpensive for readers, and to send out some free copies to reviewers and other key people, I'm going to need a little help.
If you're not familiar with my work you can read and listen to some of the stories that'll be appearing in the book at www.brendandetzner.com. Thanks for your attention!
