Perfection is Failure by Will Mayo

June 2022 C.M.P. Featured Writers

Another great lineup this month! I’ve got some new voices and poetry from regular contributors in there as well. I didn’t get any art submissions. Thought I’d at least get a few. If y’all have any art or know any artists, send it/them my way. I’d love to start featuring some artwork. Send all writing and art submissions to with a bio and photo. I’ll get back to you soon as I can.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next book release! A chapbook by Will Mayo titled Perfection is Failure. Dropping in a couple of weeks on June 14th. Last month How do you recycle a Siberian tiger? by R. Keith was published on May 24th and is still available. I’m working on the cover for The Mourning Hour by Frogg Corpse at the moment. I’ll announce the release date soon. I also have books by Aleathia Drehmer, Dusty Jaggers, David Alec Knight, Ryan Quinn Flanagan, and a few others in the works. If you’ve sent a manuscript and haven’t heard from me yet, please be patient.

Below is a link to the Cajun Mutt Press bibliography, and this month’s featured writers. As always, huge thanks to the writers and readers! I love y’all.

How do you recycle a Siberian tiger? by R. Keith

I still don’t know how to adequately recycle a Siberian tiger after reading R. Keith’s new book but this tiger of a collection burns bright with good old fashioned hardboiled set tails (get it?) and quirky circumstances sprinkled with a dash of snotty yet self-mocking existentialism… A surreal grindhouse collection of stories with some pretty contemplative musings from Canada’s very own non-film-making Tarantino.
—Mike Zone, EIC of Dumpster Fire Press

Entitling a story “Shit Head” might suggest angsty teenage skateboard rebellion, R. Keith’s collection of short stories however, points to a considerably more sophisticated mind, well versed in humor, self-reflection, and a gift of crawling into the murky crevices of the human psyche only the most worldly of wordsmiths possess. Pop-Culture namedropping gets tedious in some hands; in R. Keith’s possession, references to Moesha soon progress to arguments on Basketball courts, while Vanishing Act is an intriguing piece full of romantic allusions to faraway places with strange sounding names that could easily take a dark twist from out of nowhere and soon become the most difficult case Columbo will ever have to solve. Mr. Keith is a unique writer, one I wish I could read more often.
—John Doyle, author of A Stirring At Dusk, and Leaving Henderson County
