When twenty-something post-grad Nick Fillmore discovers the zine he’s been recruited to edit is a front for drug profits, he begins a dangerous flirtation with an international heroin smuggling conspiracy and in a matter of months finds himself on a fast ride he doesn’t know how to get off of.

After a bag goes missing in an airport transit lounge he is summoned to West Africa to take a voodoo oath with Nigerian mafia. Bound to drug boss Alhaji, he returns to Europe to put the job right, but in Chicago O’Hare Customs gents “blitz” the plane and a courier is arrested.

Thus begins a harried yearlong effort to elude the Feds, prison and a looming existential dead end…. Smuggler relates the real events behind OITNB.

You're welcome.

Thanks. I did it myself—contrary to what Everyone says. I used to publish a zine and got to a design stage where I was like "I got this." Even without photoshop! I like the suitcase sitting there daring you to grab it. Hopefully it gives you a little frisson…. I think it's my next blog stop I really get into how it came about. See Goddess Fish Promotions above for my tour details!

I think it is a good book. I really do. (Can I say that?) I think there's a cogent emotional and artistic method behind it, besides it being a wacky story…. You can get a free download at NetGalley. (Reviews encouraged.)

So there's two Smuggler discussion boards on this site right now. Sorry to get to this one a little late for the party!
