Dan O’Shea is a man who has captured my heart. First it was through his witty and flirty comments on Twitter. Then he sealed the deal with his post on author porn that you can find here. And if you are not following him on Twitter yet – you should – @dboshea. Tell him Steena sent you 😉

And then I read Old School. It even has a foreword by Chuck Wendig that leaves you smiling.

I have yet to read an author’s voice with such a raw honesty to it. Every single word you read draws you back. Back to where writing was honest in its true form. His stories are not for the faint of heart. There’s no flowery prose. No happy ending. No heart stopping passions. Well – there’s heart stopping but not for the reasons you think.

I’ve included a link to an audio file. Listen to the voice. If this isn’t Dan himself – I don’t want to know. Seriously. Don’t tell me. Close your eyes while listening to this. I dare you…

what love is
