The blurb business: “Intimate Dialogues” – new book of short stories

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

ID - FRONT_small_size_COVERI mentioned recently my next book to see the light of life is Intimate Dialogues. Here’s the blurb I’m using to explain what readers can expect (a unavoidable commercial necessity).


Intimate Dialogues
Stories of people in confidential conversations. Dialogues between couples, whether two males, two females, male/female, old/young, couples, strangers, people and TVs or two dogs. On love, loss, hope, impropriety, friendship, death, anger, joy. Some are humorous, some fierce, most emotionally resonant. The talks occur in bars, in living rooms, in hospital waiting rooms, on building ledges, dentist chairs, therapists’ rooms, rest homes, usually face to face, rarely on phones. Always intimate.

Polite babies are going to be nice to you (T-shirts and stuff!)

Thursday, December 13th, 2012



Promises made, promises kept.


I worked with graphic artist/cartoonist Jean-Louis Lejeune, who took my ideas about nice babies (being ridiculously good) and created a series of illustrations of these various ideas that can fit on t-shirts and fabrics and accessories. hidden people calls them “Polite Babies”.


These are babies who are very polite – to one another, their parents, themselves. They are comic, fun.


I put together a short video telling what they are like, how to get them, how to make your very own t-shirts just as you want (or want to give to a young ‘un you know). That’s it. For yourself, a kid, a friend, relatives….


To order (and view) if you are in Europe (and Asia) you can go here:
EUROPE!


If you live somewhere in the Americas (and Asia?) you can go here:
AMERICAS!


But to see the 90 seconds video first to get an idea, click here:

Happy Polite Baby Days.

My ebooks are now available via KOBO

ebooks + Vincent Eaton + hidden people + availability

To date, my books, when offered as ebooks, have been available mostly on Amazon. Some people don’t particularly like Amazon’s business practices or too imposing online market share and shy away from doing business there, and I understand the reasoning. So, while my books appear on a number of competitive sites, perhaps one of the best alternatives is the independent KOBO, where my ebooks are now on offer.


My books are now available on KOBO. Click here.


That’s mostly it. Prices remain the same as on other sites (I try to keep that steady across platforms.) Announcement done.


Thanks for dropping by and having a read. – Vincent

A video of my story RED BALL

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012



A couple of years ago I posted a short-short story called Red Ball, which became rather popular and got comments like “breathtaking” and “This is great. Really creepy!” and “YES! Creepy… for sure.” and “Creepy is the word! Especially the 4th corner.” You can read the original story here.


Now I have gone and made a short video of it. I narrate it. You can see it by clicking on this sentence.


That’s it. Thanks for coming by. V+

T-shirts (finally, at last, in spite of all)

Monday, December 19th, 2011




In my clumsy, icky way, I’m “announcing” something I have thought and developed over ten years. Working with graphic designers and my brain for something I was calling stories on stuff. T-shirts designs and…whatever designs…. Couldn’t ever quite get it right to my fussy satisfaction. Kept delaying getting it out there. Wanted it to be perfect. Shot myself in the foot, both of them, feet, bang and bang. With big plans and great hesitation.


Enough. I say, enough.


If you are in the USA, North America generally, even the Americas, click right here to have a look!.


If you are in Europe or (what they call in the USA) “the rest of the world”, click right here to have a look see.


See if you like something you see.


I’ll get fancy, and develope this, and make videos, and broaden the graphic artists I work with, and work with different materials and outlets and ideas and soon comes polite babies and impolite adults and more kiddie things and in your face as well as on your back…but the main thing is, it is finally out there, out before Christmas (waaaaaaaaaaaay too late, but this was my deadline and I’m hitting it even if it is hitting me back), and and and, that’s it, for now.


Thanks for whatever you are about to do….


STORY – A Last Artistic Statement

Thursday, December 15th, 2011



Experimentally, gingerly, for the first and last time in his life, the artist known as Smithy lifted his right eyelid, placed his right forefinger near the top of his left eyeball and gently but firmly drove that sucker around the orb and smack into his brain.
Once there, he tickled the frontal cortex gently. Something somewhere in him giggled. It was painful but that was where the jokes were located.
He pushed on.


As his finger dug toward the middle of his brain, he began to loose control of his legs. He sat, suddenly, down. His finger, playing at being a brain elevator, rose to the top of his brain, his skull, pushing lightly at various stimulating gray matter as it went, replaying his many memories. His past, his present, not much of his future. Many of his past pleasures were tucked up in there and he briefly fingered their joys, disappointments and the why why whys that still echoed and generally fumed darkly in there.
He moved on, his finger making a left turn at the rear of his brain where he came into a dense layer of smut he had always kept hidden, tucked back in there, just for emergencies. It throbbed and mutated and performed a lascivious dance just for him, as it always reliably did.
But he had no time for these varied once happily anticipated stimulations, as the thrusting journey his finger was taking had made his groin unresponsive, as his dick, his anus, his flaccid sack of lazy balls lolled lackadaisical, finished for good.


He did manage, before passing out of this life and into esoteric choices he would be surprised he would have to make on the other side of this worldly existence, he bumped up against the back of his skull. His fingernail scraped here, against the skull, and, as a last treat, and as a last idea, he went in for some inner urban art.
With his fingernail he scratched letters. It was hard going as his body was now giving up major motor functions at an alarming rate. He was blind, could not speak, and the hearing was dimming—no, there, it too was now gone.
As he died, as he slumped, as his spirit floated, as required, above his body, looking down, his finger gave up its ghost and slipped out of the gray matter, falling out of his head, his eyes boggling, leaving behind, distantly, on the inner wall of his damaged, lights-out brain, the simple ego words on the inside of his skull,
“Smithy was here.”

FUNNY HAHA about HOW TO FIND YOURSELF (or a reasonable facsimile)

See my latest video right here, right now CLICK CLICK CLICK HERE HERE HERE….


Might have noticed. Christmas time. I’m in hustle mode. I made another video, about my How To book. It’s jokey! It’s short. It’s for all those people you care about…even those you don’t. What am I saying, slow person? BUY THIS BOOK for friends/family/enemy/guru/neighbor/alien entities. Whoever. Whatever. Buy forever.


GO HERE to see and hear more — and buy–print or ebooks!


Main Idea:
The aim of this book is to supply readers with practical examples and helpful hints as to how to spot, understand, and instill a real sense of self in your innermost being. Yeah, really. This book’s contents should lead readers with a more practical self-knowledge, peace of mind, spiritual nurturing, fuzzy thinking, and strange sexual longings you really should just keep to yourself.
