  1. You Are Loved! Thanks so much Brice for following All About Lemon, I highly appreciate this 🙂 And as a token of my gratitude, kindly accept this gift especially designed to all of my buddies here in the blogosphere. Simply because You Are Loved! Enjoy and have fun!
    Cheers 🙂

  2. I loved ‘Motive’, it really spoke the truth about a deeply disturbed individual. Thanks for following me. I hope you enjoy my short stories as much as I love your poetry. I look forward to reading more 🙂

  3. ‘Letter to a bank’ is awesome!
    Thank you for following sabrekittydesigns, i will be sure to post more great content for you to enjoy.

    1. I’ve been completely absorbed by poetry writing lately, but I’m working on a transgressive fiction novel about a serial killer who goes on a rampage murdering celebrities, and the short stories usually just come when they do, usually flash fiction. They tend to be absurd concepts; I have one called “Dead Polar Bear” where there is a dead polar bear in the middle of a downtown street, and then I have stories like “White Lingerie” about a man and a women staying together in a hotel the night before the woman’s wedding.

      1. Your story concept for “White Lingerie” reminds me of a Chilean film, En la Cama. You might enjoy it, unless you would be offended by a bit of nudity.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and following, Brice! Your poetry is edgy, and captures a lot of the postmodern angst a lot of us are feeling!

  5. Your poetry is incredible. Every sentence a honest pleasure, bitter some of them may be. Such character and melody. Do you still live in Colorado? I’m from Denver and am returning there soon. I’d love to hear more about Flashlight City and any other projects you’re working on in the area. I’m a poet living in Toronto but am moving back to my native (beautiful and burning) state and city. Would love to know you.

  6. Thanks for subscribing to my blog. It means a lot to have someone following so soon. I must say, you really have a gift for poetry. I typically stick to novels and nonfiction, but I rather enjoyed “When I Was Maybe Twelve Years Old.” Keep up the brilliance!

    1. Thanks a lot! Poetry is so inaccessible and pretentious sometimes, but I think it can be so important when done well. I’m glad you enjoyed my stuff.

  7. Love your site. I’m just getting started on my blog and really appreciate your checking it out and following. Congrats on the award nominations–hope you win!

  8. Hi Brice,

    I’m a little late in visiting, but thanks so much for following my blog; I will do the same and look forward to perusing your work~
    Lauren 🙂

  9. Hi Brice.
    I’m doing this project with a friend: we started an FB page for writers called “Write out Loud” https://www.facebook.com/pages/Write-Out-Loud/178638225550628?ref=hl
    where we’re trying to inspire people to write. It’s still pretty small, but we’ve already had one writing competition that got a lot of positive feedback. We’ve started a new thing where we’re promoting blogs we really like, to show our audience how other people write, and what inspires them.

    I’d really like to feature your blog next, if that’s alright. Do let me know.

      1. hahaha really, well your pic looks like a still from a movie. it has a touch of mystery and swag.
        Hey I’m a Piscean, we see life in stories 🙂

  10. Hi, thanks for liking my post and following my blog. It’s nice to have veteran bloggers looking out for newbies like me! I can’t say I’m big into poetry but I can appreciate your honesty (and the occasional f-bomb :). Keep up the good work!

  11. Thanks for following my blog! I look forward to checking out some of your work! 🙂
