Everyone Dies Famous In A Small Town

Everyone Dies Famous In A Small Town is the story of Mika Alonzo a promiscuous, drug-addicted, young girl suffering from schizophrenia who lives in Bishop, California, a small town in the Sierra Nevadas where people seem to be dying all around her under increasingly violent and bizarre circumstances. Is it all in her head or does it have something to do with the water babies, evil spirits that live in the lake whose voices sound like the cries of young children and summon strangers to the lake to be drowned?

This book is as close to bizarro fiction as I get. It's equal parts twisted, perverse, gruesome, and sad and it's all based on actual events. It will be published by Thunderstorm Books sometime in 2010. I'm sure you guys are going to love it.
