HOLLYWOOD, CA — Sunbury Press has released Shelly Frome’s latest novel “Tinseltown Riff.”

Tinseltown Riff

Tinseltown Riff

About the Book:
Tinseltown Riff centers on Ben Prine, a thirty-something hack screenwriter who, on a Labor Day weekend, finds himself in desperate straits. Latching on to a dubious last-minute opportunity, he unwittingly embarks on a collision course with a Montana tracker connected with a Vegas mob; an odyssey which culminates in a fateful showdown on an abandoned Western movie set.

“Tinseltown Riff is a twisty tale of quirky characters in a dangerous world of shadows and subterfuge, that company town called Los Angeles. Shelly Frome opens the door on a fascinating and all-too-real scene of hustle and hope. One lovely riff.”
– Donald E. Westlake, Oscar nominated and three-time Edgar Award winner, Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, author of over a hundred crime novels, many of which have been made into motion pictures.

“Tinseltown Riff is a kick — a funny, well-told tale about the world’s most insane business.”
– Peter Lefcourt, Emmy Award winner, screenwriter and best-selling novelist specializing in the Hollywood scene.

“Shelly Frome’s Tinseltown Riff takes us on a ride along the Hollywood fringe that is equal parts gritty intrigue and social comedy. In a subculture where get-rich-quick screenwriting workshops are a con and even the Santa Ana winds can be an illusion, Frome’s characters are heartbreakingly real. Under this pulp fiction lurks an unsettling yet compelling truth about the Dream Factory and its high-risk allure.”
– John Fusco, mainstream Hollywood screenwriter of Young Guns, Thunderheart, The Forbidden Kingdom, winner of two Bronze Wrangler awards and the Spur Award for Hidalgo, an Academy Award nominee for Best Screenplay and showrunner for Marco Polo.

“Shelly Frome writes with loving attention to the moment and the milieu of Hollywood and the aridity that surrounds it. Some of the best scenes give us a real taste of the Hispanic world most tourists never see. A fast moving and intriguing book with real energy.”
– Lee Jacobus, book critic, Connecticut Public Radio.

David Parmelee’s novel “The Sea Is a Thief” features Chincoteague during the Civil War

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released David Parmelee’s first novel “The Sea Is a Thief.”

The Sea is a Thief

The Sea is a Thief

About the Book:
“The Sea is a Thief” is set on Chincoteague, Virginia during the Civil War. It tells the story of a dangerous courtship between Sam Dreher, a young Union sailor on a gunship sent to protect the island, and Anna Daisey, a Chincoteague girl whose gifts as a wildlife artist are beginning to blossom. By the time a jealous rival exposes the clandestine romance, their love has grown so strong that they ignore an approaching gale to steal one last day together before a long enforced separation, narrowly cheating death.

As the war rages, Anna awaits her sailor’s return, refining the artistic skills passed on to her by her mentor, the island’s reclusive medicine woman. Sam must fight his way back; stranded behind Confederate lines and injured terribly, he survives by stealth, courage, and a most fortunate encounter with the Underground Railroad. Over the course of years the two are reunited to rekindle their love.

Students come to know the American Civil War as series of political events: debates, campaigns, and battles won or lost. The Sea is a Thief offers a new perspective from the dusty lanes and muddy channels of an oystering island in Virginia, chronicling its effects on a captivating local crew of hardy watermen, rogue hunters, moonshiners and merchants. At the center of the storm stand an unlikely young couple who desire only to love each other in peace.

Of course, the beloved wild ponies of Chincoteague play a central role.

About the Author:
T. Anderson hails from northern Minnesota and draws much inspiration from her Scandinavian roots. With paternal ties to Norway and maternal ties to Sweden, details such as character names and story settings hold great meaning for the author.

While luring readers into a mysterious science fiction thriller, at the same time she asks them to open their minds to new spiritual possibilities.

An artist of many mediums including clay, photography, and paint, T. Anderson is grateful for the opportunity to finally realize her passion for writing as well. She lives outside of Toronto, Canada with her soul mate, Kevan and her adopted canine son, Chico. Anderson is currently writing the second book in the MONAD series and cannot wait for you to read what happens next!
