Author of the first original twiterrature, Small Places, and illustrator of the New York Times best-selling novel, West of Here, Nicholas Belardes has released his new insightful and laugh-out-loud collection of essays, Ranting Out Loud. In his new upcoming book he takes pop culture references and filters it through his sardonic humor and presents relatable stories from his personal experiences. Ranting Out Loud thoughtfully references from the Harry Potter play, relating it to his own cursed childhood, to the strange connection that Star Wars and Catcher in the Rye. This collection of essays holds a mirror up to humanity and shows both the uncomfortable and the hopeful while sprinkling a smart sense of humor to cushion the blow.
Ranting Out Loud is the new upcoming book by Nicholas Belardes and is available for reviews, excerpts, and interviews. We would love to add your wonderful blog to the virtual tour from November 15-December 30. I am happy to send you a pdf of the book for your perusal.

“I couldn’t get enough. Belardes’ essays are addictive: you finish one and can’t wait to start the next. The snappy, fast-paced writing uses pop culture as a lens to look at everything—family, writing, jobs, gender, and ultimately what it means to be human.” —Lara Zielin, author of The Waiting Sky and The Implosion of Aggie Winchester
