Prick by J.R. Hamilton

indie ebook cover

Prick is my first book, started for National Novel Writing Month, finished later. To be quite honest, it is a sort of low brow piece of meta-fiction, as in the subject or topic of the book is the book’s writing, and the book is simply my day to day: written often in the food court of a dying mall where silver haired people ate cheeseburgers with glazed over eyes; typed late into the night after getting home late from work, after a day of literary theory and cleaning up junk at the behest of managers with hooves just so Santa and his unholy denizens of hell will return to help our year end sales; written at a time when I really didn’t have any friends, just one self-professed “degenerate” drinking whiskey while I drank iced tea; written over the years where I would feel compelled by women, but my past, my diagnosis, my economic status, and my morbid introversion just left me tongue tied with my wishes, my longings in mute chaos, as I would pepper my book with descriptions of porn scenes.

About The Author...

indie author

J.R. Hamilton


I am a schizoaffective, depressive-- sober drunk of 10 years-- after 10 years in a bottle looking for the genie who would make me better from the three year psychotic episode I went thru, while trying to get back to work-- only to find myself at 21 a college flunk out on the brink of a psychotic break-- then the bottle, like I said, 28 being robbed in the street and in a halfway house, at 32 finally completing a really strange piece of creative nonfiction as a college graduate-- summa cum laude, for philosophy and English-- then wrote about 14 books while looking for full time for a couple of years, then not, while working part time and collecting disability, living in housing-- the only way I could find independence. But I am so far away, mopping up floors at a corporate coffee place-- just needed a job again, still sober and most of my books were written sober, but when I was 36 I went back to smoking weed, a habit I have a hard time affording on my knock around retail wages.

I have two more books coming out by January 2020, and I have 11 for sale, 4 creative nonfiction, largely about my life/mental illness/writing/mydrinkingyears/sobriety, and two that are mostly fiction-- both from dark depressing mental states-- both dealing with suicide-- two novellas that were particularly liked by their one reader--
and four volumes of poetry--
1 of which is over 300 pages of adventitious in-the-moment freeverse, with some rather nasty pictures, and it's $100 and shouldn't be bought by anybody, but only adults.

Generally speaking, all my books are intended for mature audiences, though there's more masturbation than sex in much of it--

Most of my books are between $25 and $35 hardcover. I do intend to make softcovers at some point. I did make one short volume of strange sonnets, loosely inspired by Ted Berrigan and Bernadette Mayer's sonnets-- only $5 probably a 45 minute read or less.
