My novel's called Piggy Moto: All-Star Boar Band, and it's about a quintet of musicians who have set out to change the world's unflattering views about their species (The blurb below says it all). In case anyone is curious, I am podcasting Piggy Moto, so it would be easy (and free) to pop in and get a sample of my writing in audio format. The cover pic (drawn by Analon) is a link to the podcast page, but you can also listen on Podiobooks.com. Piggy Moto *is* in print, available from Fur Planet. I'd love to hear what y'all think about it, should you feel like popping over and giving it a read or a listen.
Here's the blurb:
The great Species Wars have ended, but prejudice and bigotry
persist. Pride and jealousy shape social policy, and lineage, rather
than merit, determines a person's fate. The least and the lowest
live without any voice, trapped under the heels of the well-born.
As a pig, Eberhard Berringer endures the scorn of more noble
species. They think him filthy, base and degenerate. Being a dwarf,
he's even set apart from his own kind, who snicker and stare when he
passes by, but hope for change glimmers on the horizon.
Word of a festival has come from the war-ravaged country of
Lancemyth—an international competition to find the most talented
musicians in all of the known world. With the help of four friends,
Eberhard intends to take that prize and show his countrymen that pigs
are not plebeian. Of course, such endeavors are rarely as simple or
safe as they may seem in the beginning.
pigs' morale. As pranks turn bloody, Eberhard and his friends find
that more than their reputation is at stake; seeing this contest
through could kill them all.
