"We created this blog as a hub; the nerve center of our collective social-networking, homepages, books and distribution.

This is a place for our unyielding, genuine selves to pool together as many badass books and as much information about as many rock-star writers as we can.

We've done this to give readers, fans, players, and watchers of badass entertainment the badass material they need...

We do not fit the stereotypical author profiles.
We like heavy metal, epic movies, video games, and high octane, in-your-face, full throttle materials.
Many of us have a dark mindset, others are just wild and scattered, and some may or may not need an attitude adjustment.
But that's just the way we like it.
Raw, real, harsh to some, but an epic home for our ilk.

Some of us you may not have discovered until the moment you set your digital foot into this space, but we have bound together a group to prove that quality writing isn't restricted to genre-favoritism and big-publishing.

Our philosophy:
If you like a Thriller written by a badass, chances are, if that badass wrote a Fantasy, you'd like it too. So, if another badass with similar a mindset wrote a fantasy, we believe you may just enjoy that too.

Genre is now irrelevant in this new publishing world.

Instead, we take a good long look at the people behind these stories, and suggest you read them based on who they are; not what genre they write.
Because a badass book is a badass book no matter where it lands on the shelves!
This is because their authors share badass interests and have similar mindsets...Mindsets like your own!

Many of us aren't even "just writers," but artists in a variety of forms.

Here, you fans of the badass slice of life we all thoroughly enjoy, will have a source for new and unexpected originality, and a powerful, ever-expanding collection of soulful stories by badass people.

But more than just books; you will find more about the artists themselves than you might find in other blogs.
We give you their social media, home pages, distribution and the like, so you can connect with some of the most accessible, badass writers out there."

A Badass Reviews - "Carpe Diem"

 "Carpe Diem" (short story) by Badass Author, Michael Loring
As reviewed by resident Badass Author, Justin Osborne

"The protagonist, James, learns first hand that the afterlife ain't what it's cracked up be.

After meeting his sudden demise, James finds himself not in a fluffy clouded Heaven or even a fiery Hell.

Instead he is led around Limbo by a mysterious guide known as 'Bud'. Limbo is filled with James' memories, both good and bad, and 'Bud' finally leads him to the ultimate decision and an answer to the ultimate question.

What comes after Purgatory?
No one knows, not even 'Bud'.

Well written and witty, Mr. Loring describes an ideal Purgatory where anyone would be content to spend eternity, but unfortunately no one can stay. Questions are asked, and some are never answered, but where's the fun in that?

Despite being so short in length, Carpe Diem leaves an impact and will have you asking a few questions yourself.

Seize the day, and pick up Carpe Diem!

Bonus: Carpe Diem is permanently FREE, and you can't go wrong with that!"

Four of Five Stars!
