Joing Justin will be Richard Lovrich performing exerts from his book HAVE A VERY BAD DAY with Ryder Cooley
About Richard Lovrich – AUTHOR – HAVE A VERY BAD DAY “I officially admit to being the author of this book. HAVBD comprised of nearly 300 dark, very short stories about unfortunate events and predominately awful people. I might have spent the same amount of time it took to write and edit this collection learning how to invest, or perhaps working a lucrative side-hustle, but no. So there you have it. My goals for HAVBD remain completely realistic. I expect that Hollywood will make a movie of each story and that Disney will create a HAVBD theme park to provide some respite for adults who are weary of fun. The world, spittle flecked with madness, finally has its book. Enjoy. Would you like to ask me why I had decided to write a book about murder, mayhem, disappointment, failure, revenge, accidents, dismemberment, misery and chaos? Would you like to ask me anything else? I am at your disposal. firstname.lastname@example.org“
