Soon to be released 

Belle Carter is an island. Jude Benjamin adrift. Together they navigate through a surreal, southern gothic world of verdant saviors, tuck stop churches, lot lizards and politically incorrect roller derby teams. Belle is the Virginia Slims smoking, tiara wearing, roller derby jamming, driver of a Mary Kay Pink tow truck for the Khamel Towing Company. One faithful day Belle pulls a car out of the James river, only to discover an ancient baby in a jar that looks an awful lot like the one her grandma has on her mantle, in a room where the rocking chair rocks by itself. What happens next?  Hold my beer and watch this…

 


And Your Little Dog Too!

Dot Derecho is the modern, all American girl next door and she’s had a tough life. As Dot was returning home from her Aunt’s funeral, her plane ran into a waterspout and crashed. But Dot is a survivor, as she reminds her little black terrier, Moreover, “we may rock the boat but we always float.” And there is an upside to the plane crash; she managed to pull infamous pop star, Felicia, out of the burning wreckage. As an added bonus, she found a pair of designer shoes - ruby red Jimmy Choo pumps.  Okay, so she found them on a dead woman, crushed by the falling plane, but they fit perfectly. Now Dot is setting out for Media City to find the Media Mogul, who has the power to turn an unknown into a celebrity with a few column inches of print or a talk show appearance. In her quest for fame Dot is joined by the Straw Man, a bar supplies delivery guy, the Silver Bullet, a street performer who wears an outfit made of beer cans, and Grrr, an alternative-lifestyle Sasquatch, each with a story to tell and a dream of riches and fame.
