About Eli Godbolt

I am not just a writer.

I am a father. Three gorgeous children - and so I am blessed.

I have been a writer since I can remember. Short stories mostly, but every now and then a longer piece would leak out onto the page. I love the thrill of losing yourself in a piece of writing - where it swallows you whole and its world is your world and you breathe in the air of somewhere foreign.

I am thirty-two and live in Washington state. I love a good story, close friends, and the beauty of words.

Review by: William Barcelona on July 9, 2012 :
After reading this book, I can summarize my feelings on it with one sentence about the skill of the author:
Eli Godbolt knows how to describe.
The reason this skill is so important and integral to this book about small town life is that he takes the world he sees in his head and delivers it to the reader masterfully. Enthralling characters. Real emotion. If you cannot identify with the small town aspect of the book, you will identify with the nostalgic ambiance and sense of personal history even if your stories are much different from the ones described. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

From the beginning to the end Small Town Glory is the type of book that you don't want to put down. It's an intriguing look into small town life and the problems that arise in such communities. The story leaves you with the impression that anything could get swept under the rug if you let it.

Review by: Aleksey Kozlov on July 6, 2012 :
A rare combination of eerie storytelling with great humor woven in. This novel takes the reader on a journey to not only the small town setting, but into the psyche of each masterfully crafted character. This book will burrow its way into the reader's mind and linger long after it has been set down. Excellent read!

Review by: Noel Hoffmann on July 6, 2012 :
Wow! Reading this book is sort of like the first time you have a rock pop. You put it in your mouth and it's sweet but a little scary at the same time. Strangely provocative in its own right. The author has a lilting style that digs really deep into the graphic nature of people and the things that make us tick. Some passages you read over and over again because the author just got it so right.

It's definitely an excellent read!
