A lone man stands behind the bars, inside the cage but he is not a prisoner, he is at work. His name is Mikey Lee Ray and he is a gaming attendant, has been for almost five years and in that time he has pretty much seen it all. But changes are coming, big changes which will surprise even him.
This is a tale of twists and turns where strange and bizarre characters are the norm and where weird situations are the every day occurrence. In between trying to juggle jobs, promote his writing and stay off the booze and away from the video games Mikey does his best to find love.
There are of course certain hazards to working in gambling, aside from the whining and bitching of the old folks who play the slot machines and who routinely lose all their money to it. Number one being that one of these days some short tempered individual will walk into Mikey's place of work and demand 'all the money and now' and who will use a gun to back up his argument.
With Pacino, Jessie, Tyler and others in tow, Mikey's world is a surreal and yet also believable place, a place where you can find yourself completely immersed without noticing as you read the entries and get sucked in to the story of our hapless narrator.
For Mikey it's a year without booze and a year without video games. A time to let go of some addictions while watching as others are routinely and dully consumed by theirs on a daily basis on the job.
Hi there, welcome to my world. Want to know me better? Just take a look at my diverse range of ebooks and dive into the world of Mikey Lee Ray. Some of my ebooks have already been downloaded thousands of times, that's a good start.
I'm always working on new projects, for example last year Richard Batchelor (author of "the Temp Pest") and I began to release the magazine LSD. As the title suggests it's highly experimental. In the long run we'll see if it's successful.
You can now read my novel / diary "Confessions of a Gaming Attendant" for free. I have a few other free titles amongst my written works on Smashwords, just search and ye shall find.
I'd also like to give a shout out to my other writing friends, Brianna Summers (author of "Cherry Popper and the Pimpmaster's Stone") and Katie who are just starting out in writing and doing well I think.
Hope you enjoy your stay in Mikeyland, if you like my writing leave a review and let others know.read more
