Honolulu, HI, March 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Written en route across the US and Europe, "Blood Money ~ Tales from Two Continents" captures the English language in a number of locales, showcasing the expressive expansiveness of a written language as it wanderlust-rambles the world, settling its prose, on occasion, in distinct and exact locations. Meet an advertising manager who wakes with a bucket on his head, a writer who tries to keep his stories from becoming too real, a professor who, with the help of his students and friend searches to find his lost cat, and two women who try to control the one thing they can't...their own lives.
An educator and journalist with other incarnations too horrible to speak of, Scott Mastro has traveled the world in search of experiences for his short stories, and he continues to do so.
"An outstanding short story collection can be the crowning glory of post-modern literature, and as proof, I offer readers 'Blood Money - Tales from Two Continents,'" says Mastro. "'Each story is complete, but together, transcends individuality to timelessness and immortality. A dramatic vision of humankind's greatness and shortcomings, BLOOD MONEY takes on Love, Regret, Lust, Revenge, Hopelessness, Hope, Security, Adventure, Frustration and Acceptance. In my stories, it's the characters' uniquely individual experiences, ranging from the sublime to the bizarre, that enable them to ultimately fulfill their destiny. BLOOD MONEY stories use the raw power of everyday language to reveal what the characters think, feel and do, their actions often far beyond what they believed themselves capable of, the culmination of what the soul lives for, and what I hope you will find in this work."
