ISN'T THAT BIGAMY? by Mike Vogel (Lulu)
What is my deal with finding POD books that take place in Utah? Well, indeed, I have found another winner. Or perhaps I should say it found me.
For all the folks who think it might be a waste of time to pitch your book to me (via email, of course--PDFs preferred), here is a success story. Mike Vogel pitched me, then hooked me. I read the first chapter of ISN'T THAT BIGAMY by Mike Vogel and realized I would need to put aside the afternoon's activities. Here we have a fresh-faced crime novel with the sharp idiosyncrasies of Elmore Leonard mixed with the bizarre "what was he thinking" actions of Carl Hiaasen.
What's not to like?:
A hit man who smokes Virginia Slims.
A mob boss obsessed with CEOs, project management and corporate culture.
A womanizer in a land of plural marriage who can't seem to get lucky.
Very wrong place at the wrong time.
What ensues is a bizarre hunting of poor Stan while he increases his bride count in an effort to satisfy his testosterone-based urges, ending in an all-character blowout that will leave your head spinning. I can't give away too many details without exposing key elements, but rest assured that it is a snappy read and thoroughly enjoyable. Think GET SHORTY meets DOC HOLLYWOOD.
And it's $9.95 through Lulu. How can you beat that?
Perhaps most amazing of all: it has a cool cover, to boot!
Stay tuned, ladies and gents. Who knows what we'll see tomorrow. Even I don't know.
