High School Ignition
By Ruby Wicked
Publisher: Tate Publishing
Published: April 2016
ISBN: 978-1682709429
ASIN: B01FG1T4B8
Pages: 356
Genre: Psychological fiction

Let us not defy instinct when evil borders normal. Even a physician can wear a white coat with a black lining and the power of a friend’s intuition may not be what the “doctor ordered”.

Garrett Pierce and Scholls Parker become friends fast and furious during their high school science experiment. Garrett is known as “G” on campus.  He is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and an all American kid.  Scholls is strikingly awkward, poor, and an all American nerd. Both possess a quirky humor, evident in the multiple conversations between the two, that bring them to life.

Garrett’s world is greatly disrupted and begins with a new stepbrother and well respected stepfather.  Enter Dr. Peter Berg, the neurologist. To everyone he seems the epitome of medical perfection. You love him and his good works. On the surface he appears normal but to the keen intuition of a nerd, he seems covertly strange. How pray tell? Perhaps the doctor’s verbal psychotic outbursts will shed light on your confusion. In the end, his madness prevails tragedy.

Literary Fiction/Erotica – Second Alibi: The Banality of Life

Second Alibi The Banality of Life Book CoverSecond Alibi: The Banality of Life
By Jonathan Harnisch
Publisher: Babydude Press
Published: August 2014
ISBN: 978-1500482015
ASIN: B00N37L3CQ
Pages: 310
Genre: Erotica, Literary

Afflicted with schizophrenia, Tourette’s Syndrome and other mental illnesses, the prolific and gifted Jonathan Harnisch has transformed the harrowing raw material of his life into what he calls “transgressive fiction” in semi-autobiographical novels such as Jonathan Harnisch: An Alibiography and Living Colorful Beauty. With Second Alibi: The Banality of Life, he revisits the abrasive, triangular psychodrama of his brilliant, questing psychotic Ben Schreiber, Ben’s libertine alter-ego, Georgie Gust, and the sadistic temptress, Claudia Nesbitt, who torments them both, while also including a moving plea for understanding that stands apart from the disturbed fevers of his fiction.

“This is a story, I hope, about my coming to enlightenment,” Harnisch writes, and in that vein he enlightens us, too, about the fantastic terrors of schizophrenia: “What this life is like with the ups and the downs, the confusion, the love and the hate; the black and the white.” He tells us about his moods abruptly shifting 25 times in an hour, his suicide attempts and addictions, the grim realities of sleep deprivation and the fear that his beloved wife has been reading his mind.

Second Alibi toggles unpredictably between semi-coherent rage (Harnisch says he often writes when symptomatic) and cool detachment, and it deploys several forms: Harnisch’s sexually-charged fiction (Claudia is “a slow-moving serpent with a tongue of fire and the ass of a bombshell”); a 106-page screenplay featuring dialogues between Ben and his old antagonists, and with his life-saving therapist, “Dr. C”; self-lacerating entries from “Georgie Gust’s” 2005 diary, and the author’s clear explanations of his condition, apparently written at moments when his symptoms have subsided.

**Due to content of a sexually explicit nature, this book is recommended for a mature audience only.**

Recent Praise for Second Alibi: The Banality of Life:
“At times, Harnisch is energized by the very power of his illness. “The mind and the sickness is all so sublime,” he writes, “the heart of living, colorful beauty.” But in his most lucid moments, this brave and eloquent writer struggles mightily to escape the dark woods of madness: “As always, my journey continues, on and on.” — BlueInk Review

“This story is now shedding light on the experiences of schizophrenics in a language that the non-sufferer can understand.” – From Worldnews Network

“Harnisch’s sense of the inner machinations of human experience spring into life through the text.” – From WOWK 13 News, W.Va, WV

“My brain was spinning by the end. It’s brilliant.” – From Editor, Second Alibi: The Banality of Life

“Second Alibi provides an honest window into the “hollow stuff.” Harnisch is at his best, though, when he leaves his inner critic behind and allows his creativity to color the world around him.” — Foreword Reviews

Jonathan HarnischAbout the Author:
Jonathan Harnisch is a producer, filmmaker, fine artist, musician and published author. He has been diagnosed with several mental illnesses from schizoaffective disorder to Tourette’s syndrome; playfully, he dubs himself the “King of Mental Illness.”  Jonathan holds myriad accolades, and his works captivate the attention of those who experience it. Manic-toned scripts with parallel lives, masochistic tendencies in sexual escapades, and disturbing clarities embellished with addiction, fetish, lust, and love, are just a taste of themes found in Jonathan’s transgressive literature. Conversely, his award-winning films capture the ironies of life, love, self-acceptance, tragedy and fantasy. Jonathan’s art evokes laughter and shock, elation and sadness, but overall forces you to step back and question your own version of reality.

Literary Fiction/Erotica – Jonathan Harnisch: An Alibiography

Jonathan Harnisch Alibiography Book CoverJonathan Harnisch: An Alibiography
By Jonathan Harnisch
Publisher: Etica Press, Ltd

Pages: 804
Genre: Erotica, Literary

What if you had such severe schizophrenia that your life was just one hallucination after another? And what if people kept trying to drag you back out of those hallucinations, to prove that you weren’t living in reality, and that reality was nothing more than a psych hospital? Would you go? Would you make that leap back into reality, leave such a vivid life, for ceramic walls and metal gurneys? Ben Schreiber has Tourette’s syndrome, which causes him to display uncontrollable tics and hops, and to stutter and swear inappropriately. Bullied through his school years, he can never form strong friendships, especially with women. In his late twenties, he plunges into a downward spiral of drug and alcohol abuse, which culminates in an attempted bank robbery. After he is arrested, his psychiatrist, Dr C, quickly recognizes Ben’s affliction as much more than Tourette’s. Inside Ben’s head lives Georgie Gust, Ben’s alter ego. Georgie is obsessed with his manipulative but extremely sexual next-door neighbor, Claudia Nesbitt. Ben is desperately searching for the unconditional love he never received as a boy. He finds it easier to retreat into his mind to share Georgie’s sick obsession with cruel and abusive Claudia than to deal with his real issues. It is up to Dr C to help Ben face the buried terrors of his childhood so that he can finally let go of Georgie and reduce him to the literary character that the writer Ben wants him to be.

Jonathan HarnischAbout the Author:
Envision a blend of a mentally ill mind with unsurpassed resiliency and fiery intellect and your result would be the brilliant Jonathan Harnisch. An all-around artist, Jonathan writes fiction and screenplays, sketches, imagines, and creates. Producer filmmaker, fine artist, musician, and published erotica author, Jonathan holds myriad accolades, and his works captivate the attention of those who experience it. Manic-toned scripts with parallel lives, masochistic tendencies in sexual escapades, and disturbing clarities embellished with addiction, fetish, lust, and love, are just a taste of themes found in Jonathan’s transgressive literature. Conversely, his award-winning films capture the ironies of life, love, self-acceptance, tragedy and fantasy. Jonathan’s art evokes laughter and shock, elation and sadness, but overall forces you to step back and question your own version of reality. Scripts, screenplays, and schizophrenia are defining factors of Jonathan’s life and reality – but surface labels are often incomplete. Jonathan is diagnosed with several mental illnesses from schizoaffective disorder to Tourette’s syndrome; playfully, he dubs himself the “King of Mental Illness.” Despite daily symptomatic struggles and thoughts, Jonathan radiates an authentic, effervescent, and loving spirit. His resiliency emanates from the greatest lesson he’s learned: laughter. His diagnoses and life experiences encourage him to laugh at reality as others see it. Wildly eccentric, open-minded, passionate and driven, Jonathan has a feral imagination. His inherent traits transpose to his art, making his works some of the most original and thought-provoking of modern day. Jonathan Harnisch’s struggles with his mental health conditions are interlinked with the incomprehension of non-sufferers, which provokes him to explain his reality. He has explored a range of media, including film, music, and now the written word, to help the general public understand exactly what it feels like to suffer from schizophrenia. By fictionalizing the day-to-day meetings of multiple personalities, he is illuminating a corner of psychiatry that few understand. As an author with schizophrenia, Jonathan Harnisch is ideally placed to share the unusual perception commonly defined as ‘mental illness’. Harnisch is not dealing with an altered reality, but a double reality. His main characters, Ben Schreiber and Georgie Gust, perfectly illustrate how two lives can share the same body.
