Truck Stop Jesus
by Buck Storm
Oh, for a simpler time! Paradise Jones dreams of the Hollywood glamour days. Clothes, hair, vintage car–you name it, she’s got it. She’s classic retro, a 21st-century image of her favorite Golden Era stars–Doris, Audrey, Esther, Marilyn. The entertainment rags call Paradise eccentric. The studios rarely call at all. When an altercation with her leering stepfather forces her to flee Los Angeles, Paradise leaves behind everything she loves and longs for.

A few hundred miles east, Doc Morales’ years of hard work in the minors of Major League Baseball have produced exactly one at bat in the Big Show. A collision at first, a blown knee, and adios dreams. Nothing left to live for but pick-up games and his collection of old movies. Nothing, that is, until beautiful, damaged Paradise Jones crashes into his small, Arizona town. So begins an epic road trip that will change everything.

Throw in a couple of oddball bounty hunters, a forgotten movie-star boat captain, a cowboy priest, and a dashboard Jesus that is more than meets the eye, and Paradise and Doc have all the ingredients they need to cook up a fun and quirky slice of Americana pie.

Joan Reeves: On the Rebound: June Posts

I can hardly believe the first half of the year is over. I’ve heard that protest from many people this past week.

I’ve said it far too many times. I’m sure Darling Hubby is sick of hearing me bemoan all the things I didn’t get done.

In June, there were a lot of good posts–on SlingWords and other blogs I read.

June was crazy busy. I Just didn’t have an opportunity to read much nor did I have the chance to pass along links through social media of the posts I’d bookmarked.

So let’s back up and take advantage of the great information offered by blogs. Here are links to some really good posts you should read. Warning: there are quite a few links here.
