Epiphany Literary Journal, Fall, 2015, Bent But Not Broken: A Penis Adventure

Hello Friends, Blog Readers and those who have stumbled upon Open Trench by mistake.

I am proud to share the news that the first chapter of my manuscript, Bent But Not Broken: A Penis Adventure, has been published in the esteemed literary journal, Epiphany.

The Fall issue is entitled Pent Up Humanity.

Nice, right?

$13 for this issue,
$20 for a year's subscription (Fall and Spring)

Purchase Here at any time:

Bent But Not Broken: A Penis Adventure is a humorous romp through the medical treatment and relationship torture of acquiring a penis disease.  You'll have to read the whole book one day to see how it turns out.
But do purchase this literary journal to read the first chapter because, you know, when was the last time you did that? You'll enjoy this collection, I believe.
