Overview

From the historic groundbreaking Guy Instructional Manual, breaking the ground as we speak, featuring a bonus, low cost, low calorie (but maybe not better) alternative to the upcoming X-Rated College Girl Cookbook, plus, free of charge, the unreadable "How to be a Best Man" and the shocking and forgettable, "Guys Who Knit."

Try to make a good first impression when you meet a girl, often an unplanned occurrence. Watch out for the f-bombs. Put your best foot forward. Loafers are cool, and give the impression you haven't been expelled yet. She'll think you're working on your PhD, whatever that is. Don't hurt your chances. Avoid turnovers. Most bad teams make too many mistakes, through penalties, fumbles, and interceptions. Stay away from those, because, remember, you are in need of, or want, a girlfriend.

Meet the Author

John Blandly has always been an outsider, an underground writer, a contributor to small, obscure literary publications, paid in copies, without a compass, lost in the slush piles of America.

There was a time when Blandly read a lot of Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes), Earle Stanley Gardner, James M. Cain, Ian Fleming, John LaCarre and Ross Macdonald (The Far Side of the Dollar, The Goodbye Look, The Big Sleep). He has read the complete works of Arthur Conan Doyle. He thought Ross, Art and the other guys were great writers. "No Time To Die," is a murder mystery written in the hard-boiled style of noir detective fiction. Blandly is also a fan of Gossip Girl, Ethan Frome, Erma Bombeck, Pride and Prejudice, and Chick Lit.

His influences are J. D. Salinger, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Voltaire, Kafka, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

"Lightman," is based on the screenplay of the same name. Lightman doesn't really have any super powers, just fiddler crabs who help him out as he tries to win the heart of his new girlfriend, Venus.

Blandly's massive corporate front office would like to say thank you to everyone who has bought one of his books. Other than a purchase, there is little in the way of feedback, so, when he is aware that a book is appreciated enough to buy, he is very grateful.

About ten years ago Blandly started writing screenplays. Suddenly it seemed like a book was completed when it got to 100 pages. He tried to put in a lot of dialogue, fast paced action and quick cuts, as if you were watching a movie. So, consider yourself lucky that you have been spared a lot of narrative.

It has been said that there is never a final version of a screenplay--just the current one. If you think your script is perfect, just pick it up in a few weeks or months. Spontaneously, it seems, typos, plot flaws, and all sorts of errors appear, as if out of nowhere. That's like an ebook. There is one way ebooks are better than printed books for a writer--you can easily revise them--edit--fix mistakes--make the book better.

"The Volunteers" was originally published in "Studio" (Australia). Blandly loves Australia and hopes some day to visit there. South America too.

Love stories--that's what Blandly likes in a book or a movie. Some love stories here are "Kiss Me, I'm Irish," "Ace It," "Girlfriends Lost," and "The Volunteers." There may be others.

Blandly has always been interested in astronomy, and gets new books almost every year (almanacs). There are always new discoveries. "The Meddlers," and "Peeps" deal with what might happen if there was virtual travel to nearby stars, which our onboard computer thinks will happen.

Blandly resides in the wilderness of the New York frontier.
Here are some links to navigate with him!

It is said that a prophet is not without honor except in his home town. Blandly says, based on sales of his books, "Looks like my home town is--THE WORLD!"

The young adult novelette, The Volunteers, is based on a number of true stories, or more accurately, harrowing experiences.

Girlfriends Lost is completely fictional--we wish!
We do not know how to explain it right now except to say, Caesar used to write about himself in the third person, but he had far better adventures.
So, enjoy reading "The Death of John Blandly, Continued," included in this novella, and if you can figure it out, let us know, at jjbrearton@aol.com.

John Blandly and his friends, two brothers, Avant Life Guard, Avant Security Guard and their sister, Avant Point Guard, have posted articles and stories on the Internet, and have virtually collaborated on some sites, like Triond. Some of these writings are collected here.
