Bloated Goat received a great new review on Amazon US:

"I've been reading Bloated Goat on the subway to and from work for the past few days. It got to be really embarrassing because I would be sitting there cackling like a crazy train lady amid the silent, serious strap-hangers. I am going to read it again, just to relish some of my favorite ridiculous moments. Mr. Peterson's silly turn of phrase is effortless, and seems to emit from a genuinely funny person, not just someone trying to be funny for posterity. I was impressed with the diverse cast of characters; sometimes a lot of characters can be hard to follow, but they were all so distinct and original, linked together with a common thread of madness and hilarity. I loved every one of them. After a stressful night at work, I always looked forward to reading a few more pages of this story about friends, feathers and flatulence."

So, there you have it...for $.99 you, too, can enjoy a wacky story that will be leave you "cackling like a crazy train lady."

Great New Reviews

Bloated Goat has received two great new reviews on Amazon.com

Malay<3sia writes, "If you enjoy juvenile humor, you will undoubtedly enjoy this book. With its laugh-out-loud moments, corny humor, and zany cast of characters, this story is like reading a cartoon that comes to life in your head. Some of these characters will stay with me for a very long time."

Grannyreader writes, "I read this with my Granddaughter and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a bit mischevious and absurd, but funny and it was lovely to hear my Granddaughter laugh so much. Fun stuff. I recommend it to everyone for a cheeky giggle."

Now is a great time for you to buy Bloated Goat and see what everyone is talking about. Check out the links to purchase for Kindle, Nook, or Smashwords formats.

You'll discover a whole cast of wacky characters doing what they do best - getting tangled up in humorous situations and making you laugh!

One recent Kindle reviewer said, "...this story is like reading a cartoon that comes to life in your head."

Here's a short excerpt from Chapter 8 of Bloated Goat:

The entire population of the mushroom village was sitting in a large courtyard facing the head table. The Mushroom King was sitting at this wooden dinner table with a large white bib around this neck. He was quite satisfied with himself. He had marinated and seasoned Bloated Goat and placed him on a silver tray face up with an apple in his mouth. Sitting beside the king were his most trusted subjects and other members of the court. Everyone was waiting on the king to start eating, but he decided to start with a toast.

“My dear mushrooms…” he began.

But not everyone was listening to that useless prattle. Walter Wolf knew this was the perfect time to spring his chicken meal. Luckily, the mushroom guards near Cocky’s cage had left their posts and gathered with the poorer mushroom folk at the edge of the crowd to hear the king’s speech. Silently climbing up the tree, he raised his head level with the cage, and whispered, “Psst, hey kid. Psst.”

Cocky had been sadly listening to the king’s toastings and boastings when he was startled by Walter’s voice. He turned quickly and looked at the wolf suspiciously. “What? Are you talking to me?”

“Well, yeah, do you see anyone else in this cage with you? I’m here to bust you out before you get eaten like that bloated meat sack down there,” Walter said pointing in the king’s direction. “Or would you rather wait for your turn on the grill?”

Whether it was sheer stupidity or the hopelessness of the situation, Cocky decided to take the wolf’s help. He knew he shouldn’t be anywhere near a hungry, salivating wolf; in fact, it was rule number seven in the Ultimate Chicken Survival Handbook. It was sandwiched right between rule number six—never trust anyone named The Colonel, and rule number eight—always keep the secret of which came first.

Cocky nodded to Walter. With his super sharp claws, Walter ripped open the lock like it was made of wet paper and hopped from the tree into the cage. “Quickly, quickly, climb onto my back before the guards return.”

You can read the rest of the hilarious story for $.99 on Kindle, Nook, or Smashwords.

Bloated Goat for $.99

Here's another sample from Bloated Goat:

Chapter Thirteen

Walter Wolf knew he was getting close to his prey. He was salivating almost constantly. He could almost taste a slowly roasted chicken leg lightly seasoned with secret herbs and spices. He imagined following that up with a goblet filled with bloated juices and a plate stacked high with tender goat meat. But he couldn’t imagine what he would do with an old saggy shark.

Walter’s stamina was almost at a breaking point. With no real food in his belly for a few weeks, he had thought more than once about eating his mother-in-law, but had decided against that to save his marriage. He had thought about dipping his own tail in ketchup and eating it, but just couldn’t get himself to take the first bite.

Walter had been frustrated lately. Where were the plump little pigs trying to build homes when you needed them? Where was that tasty naïve gingerbread man running through the countryside? And where, oh where, was the little girl dressed in red clothes skipping through the woods with a basket full of goodies?

But now, Walter felt he had caught a break. He was close. Wonderful aromas were floating in the air. He could smell a goat lightly marinated in special sauce. He could smell the fresh and tender chicken with a hint of salt. And finally, he could sniff what could only be described as old lady jockey shorts and mothballs, which made his nose wrinkle in disgust.

Sneaking alongside The River, Walter could hear a large celebration in full swing. He quickly slithered up the bank and hid behind a tall pine. Carefully poking his head around the trunk, he could see what all the lively commotion was about.

A large bonfire was roaring in the middle of thousands of partying mushrooms. Nearby, a barbeque was being handled by several smiling mushroom cooks. One larger mushroom wearing a white chef’s hat and an apron that proudly announced “Kiss a Shroom, Go Ka-boom!” was standing on a raised platform near a large black cauldron. He had several spice shakers and seemed to really enjoy sprinkling various seasonings on Bloated Goat, who was bobbing up and down in the brew.

Walter looked past the fire and saw a wooden cage hanging from a tree. The cage was swinging ever so slightly as a sad young rooster with trembling beak lips watched the cooking scene. He was grasping the bars so tightly that his hands had turned completely white, which wasn’t a hard thing to manage since they were covered in white feathers. The rooster looked utterly downtrodden, and that brought a hungry smile to Walter’s gaunt face. It’s a shame you can’t find cage free chicken anymore, Walter thought. Slinking away into the shadows, he waited for the perfect moment to spring into action.

Check out the rest of the story for $.99 on Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords.
