After graduating from high school, two friends from Germany decide to drive to Scotland.
Oliver Markus Malloy is a German-American novelist and comic artist. Born and raised in Aachen, Germany, he currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.
Malloy began his writing career in the early 1990s, as editor-in-chief of a computer magazine with a monthly circulation of over 500,000, which was distributed by Germany's largest publishing house. After moving to New York, he was the art director for a newspaper in Manhattan, and later the production manager for a newspaper in Brooklyn, before he began self-publishing his cartoons online in May 2000. He has never had another 9-5 job since.
His bestselling trilogy, Bad Choices Make Good Stories, has been downloaded over 100,000 times on Amazon, Apple Books, Google Books, and Kobo.
Join Oliver on his epic road trip from New York to California, as he almost gets blown up in the Sears Tower in Chicago, almost gets bitten by a rattlesnake in Colorado, almost gets eaten by a mountain lion in the Rocky Mountains, almost dies in a sand storm in Death Valley, almost gets killed by a sea elephant in California, almost gets arrested by a Park Ranger on Route 1, almost gets abducted by aliens in Yosemite National Park, almost gets disappeared by the US military, almost has sex with a hooker in Reno, and almost crashes in a helicopter.
Forget everything you think you know about writing and self-publishing. Chances are it's complete bullshit.
Nowadays there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who dream of being a professional writer. And thanks to self-publishing and print-on-demand, there's nothing stopping you or anyone else from publishing whatever you want.
Even if it's complete crap.
The result? Every year, millions of shitty books get self-published. Books that should have never been published in the first place, because they are so bad, nobody wants to read them.
While you're reading this little book, one of two things is likely gonna happen: Either you totally hate this book, because you feel what I'm saying is stepping on your toes and you may feel personally attacked. Or you wholeheartedly agree with this book, because you're one of the few good indie authors who actually have talent.
But even if you hate every word I say, you probably should take the time to read this book anyway, because you'll learn a few very important things. I promise to keep it short.
But that's the thing: virtually nothing you are being told about liberals is actually true. It's propaganda, designed to demonize liberals.
Bill Maher keeps asking the guests on his show: "Why is the D for Democrat so toxic in red states?" Most liberals honestly have no idea why you Trump voters hate liberals so much.
This is why:
You're being lied to, to make you hate liberals.
Be honest: you can barely tolerate me even using the word liberal so many times in a few sentences, because to you it's such a toxic word. Liberals repulse you. They are barely even human, and definitely un-American, right? You think liberals are everything that is wrong with America. Liberals are wrong, bad and evil. Evil demons. America would be a much better place without liberals, right?
That extremely negative emotional response in your head was created by malicious propaganda lies you have been fed about liberals.
Here's a short list of true facts Fox News doesn't want you to know. And it's just the tip of the iceberg.
Hitler and the Nazis were not liberals, not lefties, not socialists, and not democrats. Hitler and his Nazi minions were right-wing Christian conservative nationalists who hated liberals for the same reasons you hate liberals.
I know what you're thinking: 'That's freakin' crazy talk! That can't possibly be true! This guy is a deranged leftie libtard!"
Well, I have news for you: it's absolutely 100% true. And I can easily prove it to you in this short book, if you give me 5 minutes.
This little book is packed with important information you never heard of, if you're a Fox News viewer. And every fact, every bit of information in this book is backed up by reputable sources like Encyclopedia Britannica, The Smithsonian, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, BBC News, The Guardian, The Independent, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Der Spiegel, CBS News, NBC News, Axios News, Military Times, CNN, MSNBC, etc.

But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.
Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.
