PRLog - Jan. 25, 2012 - ROCKFORD, Ill. -- The first new short story published in a year by American writer Doug Shiloh makes its appearance in Canada's Zouch Magazine on January 25th. To celebrate it, Shiloh will record an audio version of the tale. The story is his debut in any Canadian publication. It can be found at http://zouchmagazine.com/
Doug Shiloh: dark humor stories.
The track will be available at Amazon.com and supports iPod®, iTunes®, Windows Media® Player, and WinAMP® and should sell for 99 cents.
"The Paparazzo" is a precursor to Shiloh's anticipated third novel, TORIN BALLANTINE: SEX, DEATH & WRITING. The book is "a modern biography about Torin Ballantine and the many loves who frame the pages of his life, including the red-head Pamela Manning." The chapter details how the book's main characters, Torin and Pamela meet in the spring of 1981 at a Connecticut high school track and field practice session.
"It's a fun story with back-and-forth banter between the two characters and sets the tone for what becomes a bawdy story," Shiloh said. "They're in and out of love with each other but are soul mates."
Shiloh threw discus and javelin and put the shot in high school, and in 2000 he won silver medals at the Prairie State Games. Putting sports in his stories is becoming a bit of a trademark.
"I like putting track and field in my work," he added. "There's something to living day-to-day, and in writing that's so sports-like."
Shiloh is putting the finishing touches on his second novel "WAITING FOR THE END." He then will turn to TORIN BALLANTINE which he admits has a lot of dark humor, with splashes of sex.
"I have a feeling I'll be able to focus on that one rather well," he cracked.
