About David G. Swanson

D avid G. Swanson is a humorous writer/novelist who lives in the Southwest Colorado mountain town where he grew up. He delves into both non-fiction and fiction, with the only requirement being that the piece he’s working on at the time has to have a comedic tinge to it. This style of scribbling words on a page is the only requirement for what he does. He’s just that passionate about writing in the style.
Since beginning his odyssey as an author of stories and essays he’s achieved a number of milestones with his writing. A self-published book of essays based on his childhood adventures (or mis-adventures as the case may be) was put out in December, 2015. His website/blog came on line in November of last year, and he’s received recognition for a variety of the pieces he’s authored, whether it’s short story, essay, and even the occasional novel excerpt.

Latest Books

This section of the site contains the 2-pg. synopsis’for the two most recent novel length manuscripts (“Friendship Highway” & “Air Conditioned Bus Tours”), and details about the self-published book of childhood essays (Silverton Style). That manuscript is available through Amazon, purchase off this website, or by contacting the author. He might even send you an autographed copy of the book.  Although having him do this may lower the actual re-sale value of the manuscript since you’re probably looking to make some money off the transaction.

As for the two novel manuscripts; Friendship Highway has a word count of 62,306, 310 pages, and is 35 chapters in length with an epilogue. The Word Count for Air Conditioned Bus Tours is 79,205, the story is 355 pages, and 29 chapters in length. Neither manuscript has seen the radiant light of publication (self-publishing doesn’t count).  Whether or not the pages of these novels are action packed, or sleep inducing is up to the reader (don’t say you weren’t warned).
