Jake Wheat’s “Color or Die” Serial Killer Book Causes Controversy (Already)
Less than a month away from publication, and already Jake Wheat’s upcoming book “Color or Die,” a strange mish-mash of novel meets coloring book has already caused outrage with Wheat’s former literary agent, who will remain unnamed. His email writes:
“Creative control is given to Wheat for his books, and we have respected that. However upon receiving his submission (which was due to be published December 1st, 2012) I felt it best to withdrawal representation.”
The email goes on to give reasons, which are as follows:
1. Lude/grotesque front and back cover.
2. Over the top explicit content, including child cannibalism and necrophilia.
3. Completely distasteful!
Wheat commented on the email by saying the following:
My former literary agent’s job compromised his own internal conservative morals and judgments. His inability to separate reality from fiction is what keeps him from being respected and professional in his field. He should stick with biographies, non-fiction, and make sure to surround himself with dullards. I will move on, and I am quite proud of my horror masterpiece!
Copies of the book “Color or Die” will be available for sale starting January 1st, 2012 and will be available on Amazon.com soon soon after. Here are the “Lude/grotesque front and back covers” if you dare:
The book, based in Louisville Kentucky, shadows a serial killer named Thaddeus Andrew Burke, with transcripts of murder confessions starting from November 17th, 2012. Thaddeus illustrates his kills and other freakish drawings in the pages of the book, which are done as line art for adults to color. The book is billed for adults only, containing graphic violence, cannibalism, sexual situations, and full frontal nudity.
