At first glance, you may expect this book to follow the tradition of backwoods behavior and self deprecating humor commonly found in redneck literature. It seems the approach most authors take when discussing this particular subject matter is from the outside looking in, much like observing captive animals at the local zoo. That perspective, though often entertaining, hardly provides an accurate depiction of what it's actually like to be a monkey. To do that, we'd need to get the story from the inside, straight from the monkey's mouth. Unfortunately though, monkeys can't speak. But rednecks can. And just like no two monkeys are exactly the same, some rednecks have managed to evolve beyond their predecessors. However, it seems that no matter how intelligent they become, they can never quite escape their genetic predisposition toward certain behaviors.A rare blend of satirical humor and heartfelt reality, The Redneck Chronicles is a one-of-a-kind story about growing up in the south. Written in an honest and captivating tone, the author candidly shares the details of his life, allowing you to relive those experiences through the eyes of a "redneck". Reading between the lines you'll undoubtedly discover a timeless memoir that resonates with anyone, of any age, regardless of cultural differences.

"Vampire heroes we can all believe in." --New York Times Bestselling Author, Faith Hunter Book 4: Paint It Black Goblins and Witches and Trolls . . . oh crap! In the fourth installment of The Black Knight Chronicles, Jimmy Black is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day and a darned fine pity party, serving the finest alcohol, when a call from his not-quite-girlfriend-cop forces him to sober up and stare at jawbones. "Cold case" takes on a whole new meaning when vampire detectives risk life and limbs (literally) to connect a series of decades-old kidnappings in Charlotte with current missing persons cases. All clues lead through the veil of Faerieland to the legendary Goblin's Market, a magical bazaar where anything is available--for a price. The boys can barely stay out of trouble in Charlotte. As fresh meat at The Market, they'll be lucky to survive the day. Book 5: In the Still of the Knight The bodies are piling up! Murders are happening outside Charlotte's hottest nightspots. A new vampire society has set up shop in the sewers. And Jimmy Black's about to run afoul of the Master of the City. If Jimmy weren't already a vampire, the week ahead would be the death of him. Between murder, monsters, pesky vampire ethics, and territorial disputes, Jimmy is about to discover how far he's willing to go to save the world and one friend's soul. There are no easy choices, even for vampire geeks. Book 6: Man in Black The latest book in the award-winning Black Knight Chronicles is a raucous ride through the city of Charlotte's seedy underbelly with the most unlikely crime lord ever. Jimmy Black's knack for stumbling into the right place at the wrong time has landed him his dream job--or worst nightmare--Master Vampire of the City. Almost everyone that works for him wants him dead. His best friend isn't speaking to him. His girlfriend is now his ex-girlfriend. And the Vampire Council has appointed a watchdog who'll decide if he lives past Thursday. He has a kidnapping to solve, monsters and demons to fight, and a whole new crime empire to figure out. Then there's Lilith . . . . Join Jimmy as he tries to put his (un)life back together and stay alive long enough to save the world. Again. Author John G. Hartness is the Epic and Manly Wade Wellman Award-winning writer behind The Black Knight Chronicles from Bell Bridge Books, as well as the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter and Bubba the Monster Hunter series. In his copious free time, John enjoys long walks on the beach, rescuing kittens from trees, and playing Magic: the Gathering.

How did Donald Trump, a man with zero direct political experience and no particular affiliation to either political party go in the span of a two-year campaign from preposterous aspirant to President-elect of the United States? It will likely take years, if not decades, before a confident consensus develops, but formulating an answer begins with chronicling the key events in the campaign, in the country, and sometimes in the wider world as they happened. This book is an attempt to provide such a chronicle, by no means the last word but perhaps a useful and entertaining first word toward answering the question, What the heck?

The POTUS Chronicles is a merry romp through some of the most eventful times in the nation's political history. It's a sometimes-bumpy roller coaster ride, "prudently recreating" with George H. W. Bush, wondering what's next for "Bubba" Bill Clinton and his co-president wife, and "misunderestimating" George "Dubya" Bush. Like pages from a reporter's notebook, satirical glimpses of three administrations are captured with the freshness of today's headlines. Besides presenting a breezy account of war and peace and partying at the dawn of a new century, the pages of The POTUS Chronicles contain answers to many questions that trouble the minds of conscientious citizens, such as: Which president had to prove his identity to a skeptical third-grader? What advice did the Bush dog, Millie, give the Clinton cat, Socks? Whose presidential inauguration involved an official road kill patrol? Who is the former first lady who revealed she has conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt? How did the White House staff react when a president choked on a pretzel? What happened to Dick Cheney after a Republican senator switched parties? Relive a memorable era in the nations capital as seen through the lens of a seasoned Washington observer, tongues in cheek.

Drug Use Cuts a Wide Swath Among Author’s Friends Short Stories to Die For “Stink” in Australian slang means a “fight” or something or someone that is not welcome. The Chronicles of a Stink Chicken: Episodes Second Edition features eight short stories and poetry describing the madness and wildness of thoughts and actions resultant from use of illicit drugs. It challenges unsuspecting readers with insets of respected philosophic pretext that asks real questions regarding health authority involvement with ranges of customers in the community, as social changes recreate the society they are created from. It is disarmingly presented within the same context of wild humours and contains spun encounters with insanity. The stories are about some of the author’s school friends who are mainly deceased due to substance abuse. The book also includes health and legal issues, financial truths, and the social negativities that come with using drugs. Humour is used to show how easily a user’s mind may be led into absurd beliefs. Author Kevin Munro says his short stories cover a wide period of his life that are re-weaved and spun. “Therefore, the Stink Chicken is probably myself, however in a somewhat creative and remodeled world. You would be surprised how many elements and events in these absurd stories verging upon the surreal are actually true.”

THE MUSTANG CHRONICLES, VOL. 1: ROCKETT '68 is a literary, lyrical action novel written in the Picaresque tradition. The story unfolds from the perspective of the hero, or villain depending on your opinion about such matters, in the first-person present tense. Gripping, taut prose intertwines with more lyrical passages like a singular wine perfectly paired with its course. For connoisseurs and casual readers alike, this novel serves up a savory, stimulating read. TMC Vol. 1 takes place at the zenith of 1960's America and explores the zeitgeist, counterculture, cars, and music that defined a generation and indelibly influenced American culture. TMC Vol. 1 pays homage to 1960's pop Americana in fascinating detail, all the while moving readers inexorably toward the novel's fantastical conclusion. Keep your eyes peeled and intellect at the ready—deeper meaning, subtlety, and nuance abound. The novel's episodic style eschews linear constraints, along with the well-worn flat trajectory from introduction to conclusion whence all tangents are neatly tied together and presented dutifully at the end—not unlike a dog presenting a ball to his master for a routine game of fetch. You will find no such mundanity in The Mustang Chronicles, Vol. 1: Rockett '68. Just read it. You'll be glad you did. www.themustangchronicles.com

The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera

The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera traces the development of the Florida-Alabama coast as a tourist destination from the late 1920s and early 1930s, when it was sparsely populated with "small fishing villages," through to the tragic and devastating BP/Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010. Harvey H. Jackson III focuses on the stretch of coast from Mobile Bay and Gulf Shores, Alabama, east to Panama City, Florida--an area known as the "Redneck Riviera." Jackson explores the rise of this area as a vacation destination for the lower South's middle- and working-class families following World War II, the building boom of the 1950s and 1960s, and the emergence of the Spring Break "season." From the late sixties through 1979, severe hurricanes destroyed many small motels, cafes, bars, and early cottages that gave the small beach towns their essential character. A second building boom ensued in the 1980s dominated by high-rise condominiums and large resort hotels. Jackson traces the tensions surrounding the gentrification of the late 1980s and 1990s and the collapse of the housing market in 2008. While his major focus is on the social, cultural, and economic development, he also documents the environmental and financial impacts of natural disasters and the politics of beach access and dune and sea turtle protection. The Rise and Decline of the Redneck Riviera is the culmination of sixteen years of research drawn from local newspapers, interviews, documentaries, community histories, and several scholarly studies that have addressed parts of this region's history. From his 1950s-built family vacation cottage in Seagrove Beach, Florida, and on frequent trips to the Alabama coast, Jackson witnessed the changes that have come to the area and has recorded them in a personal, in-depth look at the history and culture of the coast.

Scholar and iconoclast Andrew Ross spent a year living in the much scrutinized, and often demonized, Celebration--the picture-perfect town that Disney is building for 20,000 people in the swamp and scrub of central Florida. Lavishly planned with a downtown center and newly minted antique homes, and front-loaded with an ultraprogressive school, hospital, and high-tech infrastructure, Celebration was to offer a fresh start in a world gone wrong. Yet behind the picket fences, gleaming facades, and "Kodak moment" streetscapes, Ross discovered a real place with real problems, and not a theme park village cooked up by the Imagineers. Compelling and wide-ranging in its analysis, The Celebration Chronicles provides a startlingly fresh perspective on the link between contemporary urban planning and corporate bottom lines.
