Should I tell him about Sushing or play dumb?

Sticking in my comfort zone, I played dumb.

Writer Marco Ocram has a secret superpower--whatever he writes actually happens, there and then. Hoping to win the million-dollar Sushing Prize, he uses his powers to write a true-crime thriller, quickly discovering a freakish murder. But Marco has a major problem--he's a total idiot who can't see beyond his next sentence. Losing control of his plot and his characters, and breaking all the rules of fiction, Marco writes himself into every kind of trouble, until only the world's most incredible ending can save his bacon.

Fast, funny, and utterly different, welcome to the weird world of The Awful Truth.

Review quote

"The Awful Truth is endlessly clever, on the mark with its targets and simply funny." -- Alex Austin, author of Nakamura Reality

"A wickedly amusing parody of a crime novel, but as fast-paced and action-packed as any police procedural. I enjoyed it immensely." -- Minette Walters, author of The Turn of Midnight

"Typing himself into trouble and writing himself out of self-inflicted scenarios, Marco Ocram is the self-referential literary hero we all need. The action and humor starts on page one and doesn't stop until the final sentence." --S.G. Browne, author of Breathers and Less Than Hero
