Awkward Two, a collection of 33 micro-short stories by 25 incredible writers, will be released to the public on September 27, 2010. (You can pre-order it right here.) Who are these incredible writers? Let’s meet ‘em! We sent the same 9 questions to all the writers. Here are their answers.
Jeffrey Dinsmore, also known as Jeffrey D, is the main brain behind Awkward Press and the man responsible for 90% of the content of this website. He is also responsible for 90% of the world’s orgasms. That second part isn’t true, but what is true is that Jeffrey is one of my favorite people in the world. He is that incredible rare combination of someone who is both wildly talented and deeply good. He’s also one of the funniest people I’ve met, and one of the luckiest as his wife is one of the coolest wives I’ve ever met. The biggest compliment I can pay him is to say that he’s an inspiration to me — which sounds Tony Robbins-y I know, but is true. (Blushing now, Jeff?) For more about Jeffrey, read pretty much anything on this website, or check out his weight loss progress at www.jeffreydinsmore.com.
