American Cool is Susan DiPlacido's hot collection of short stories. So hot, in fact, that Romantic Times gave it 4 1/2 Stars in its latest edition, on newsstands now. Congratulations Susan!
Realistic jargon paints the settings, and the use of unusual points of view is refreshing. A bit like a literary Pulp Fiction, this book offers a glimpse into the exciting, sometimes dangerous lives of people living on the edge.

I'm a little late remembering the anniversary of 9/11. But that's OK, we should reflect on that day often, not just on the anniversary. It's been six years now, and the world is still reverberating from the consequences of the attacks. The subject has slowly been finding its way into our art, with books like Falling Man by Don DeLillo, and films like Oliver Stone's World Trade Center. My own small contribution is included in my collection of inter-connected short stories, Stories From Sunset Hill. You can read it here now for free.
ATTENTION NEW YORKERS!
Into the Sunset by Donald Capone is now available at the New Voices Bookstore, located in the East Village. Look for future bulletins regarding an author signing and reading!

WHEN a thirty year-old bachelor disguises himself as an old man to live in The Sunset, a retirement community, will everything go as smoothly as planned? Of course not! His elderly love interest becomes suspicious of his under-cover-of-darkness-only lovemaking, his neighbor wants to experiment with Viagra®, the head of security is more interested in extortion than security, and the woman who runs the community may be on to his scheme. Can Wayne survive old age?
INTO THE SUNSET is Donald Capone's first novel.
Capone's stories have appeared in Edgar Literary Magazine, Word Riot, and Thieves Jargon, as well as the anthologies See You Next Tuesday and Rebellion: New Voices of Fiction.
