Glory Guitars: Memoir of a Teenage Degenerate by Gogo Germaine

Sneaking out. Jail tats. Hand jobs. Gogo Germaine and gang created an adolescent infrastructure of immorality in Fort Collins’ punk scene in the ‘90s. The scene’s wastoid punks and sexual nihilism provide a lens to explore the more complex nuances of rape culture. It’s this dichotomy that Glory Guitars straddles like a live rocket: joyful, explosive, visceral, manic and gut-punchingly heartbreaking. Glory Guitars has been excerpted in Suspect Press and is seeking a publishing home with Nat Kimber from the Rights Factory.

Tintabula, a Bedtime Novel

Silence is a sounding thing, to one who listens hungrily. ~Gwendolyn Bennett

Tintabula is a story of sensory delight and overstimulation, exploring the moment when rapture turns to derangement. A modern Alice in Wonderland for the neurodivergent set, this speculative fiction follows Very St. Clair, a young woman with Sensory Processing Disorder, on an odyssey through a dream world where her real-life weakness is a strength. There, she navigates the twists and turns of consciousness, interoception and the psychic landscape. Seeking a publishing home with Nat Kimber from the Rights Factory.
