You have a fairly good story told in the third person. The opening setup, has Deanna on a blind date with Ben. A date she's setup with through a friend named Ivan. The opening was both funny and gross. The central theme, Deanna needs to fart really bad, and I do mean bad! You did a good job of rises the tension. And you made her a believable character through her actions and flaws. The ending wasn't a totally surprise, however, it was still amusing when she finally lets the fart go. The only thing that I didn't understand, was the last three lines of your short story and what it had to do with it or I just didn't get the humor of it.
“I bought the coin sorter,” she said.
“From the infomercial. It works really well.”
Overall, a quick, fun read. Good luck!

A review of Reaping Profitby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 07/24/2014'Reaping Profit' was a very interesting take on the subject of life/death & heaven/hell with an absurdist/comical approach and some hilarious situations. That being said, there were some things I had difficulty with, along with some structural issues that made this a difficult read for me. As far as the characters, the only one I really was concerned with was Jack. Death and... read
A review of P.A.M.by **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 07/15/2014P.A.M is an entertaining, high-octane, fast moving zombie picture. I read this in one sitting and it was overall an enjoyable read. I’ll try and talk high level and hopefully some of this will be helpful. Your opening was untraditional as far as the zombie movies I have seen. Normally we get that opening of 10 or more pages/minutes where all is fine and dandy before the world... read
