Author Jeff O'Brien is back on Bizzong! once again to regale us with tales of debauchery from the annals of New King Books! (Not anals you sick perverts!) 

Jeff's recent release, HEART SHAVED BOX recently caught the eye of book review podcast and I was inspired to have Jeff back on the show to discuss his latest work, the indie spirit, editing bizarro erotica and the correct spelling of the word typically used to describe male ejaculate.

We talk about nameless 90's porn stars, the evolution of jazz and why sometimes you may just be a crappy writer. Well, something like that anyway. But enough of this nonsense, because let's face facts, you haven't read a word of this! 

On with the show!
