NOFX has been called one of the world’s most influential and controversial punk bands, but its full story has never truly been told–until now! In NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories (Da Capo Pressl April 12, 2016) band members “Fat Mike” Burkett, Eric Melvin, Erik “Smelly” Sandin, and Aaron “El Hefe” Abeyta look back on more than three decades of the band’s completely inexplicable success, telling the story as only insiers could: the pranks and drunkenness and fun alongside the horrors of murder, suicide, addiction, riots, and terminal illness.
“I can’t shake the feeling that there’s possibly a race of mole people living in the Earth’s core playing a world-sized game of electric football and using some huge magnet to somehow always guide me to safety through the chaos.” ~ Fat Mike in Chapter 6
NOFX has released a dozen albums, sold more than 8 million records, and toured 6 continents; its lead singer co-founded one of the most successful indie labels in the world. Come meet them, come get your book signed!
Note: As of 4/18 a limited number of books will be available at the door.

Life with A.D.D.: Ain’t it Grand?

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on April 19, 2016




Author Enid Jackowitz writes:

“A few years ago I wrote a poem about what my life was like with ADD that I read to many of my ADD clients. They found it funny and honest and resonated with it. So I decided to make my poem into an eBook. I think the book will be helpful not only for people with ADD and those who love them; but also for others to understand what living with ADD is like.
The book, Life With ADD: Ain’t it Grand is available to download on Amazon to your Kindle/IPad/Smartphone for $2.99.”

In Deep Trouble


Long-Distance Scribbler, Terry Odell, is thrilled to announce her second Triple-D Ranch romantic suspense is available for pre-order.

She trusts everyone. He trusts no one.

In her job as a Sheriff’s Department Dispatcher, Cecily Cooper sees plenty of people who could use a second chance. She’s created a program to give the less advantaged a fresh start, and thinks her brother’s Colorado cattle ranch will be the perfect spot for her project. Some responsibility and a touch of physical labor will help these people find an alternative to life on the streets.

Bryce Barrett, ex-Army Ranger now turned cowhand on the Triple-D Ranch, prefers animals to people. People have agendas. Animals don’t. It’s one reason he and Cecily are always on-again, off-again in the relationship department.

When seventeen-year-old Grady Fenton is chosen as the first candidate for Cecily’s program, Cecily is thrilled. Bryce not so much, especially when his boss assigns him to be Grady’s mentor. Can Bryce convince Cecily there’s more to Grady than typical teenage angst? Or is he reading more into the boy’s behavior than is really there? When someone is killing cattle across the state, the Triple-D’s herd is no exception. Does Grady have answers? Sparks fly when Bryce and Cecily must put aside their differences long enough to discover what Grady is hiding. Soon things escalate, and it’s not just the cattle in danger.
