New From John Hewitt
A snaky vinter, horse racing, relationship revenge and interstellar aliens—REPTILE WINES is a rare-vintage farce.
“Hewitt’s prose, littered with deliciously bizarre dialogue and other vivid details, makes his larger-than-life world feel fit for the big screen…an outrageously weird yet delightfully charming wine-country tale.” —Kirkus Reviews
Available paperback, eBook or Kindle at Amazon or your Independent Bookstore
ONE SHOE, When a Gold Rush is not Enough!
“Take a little northern California history, add a touch of Christopher Moore and a large dash of Elmore Leonard, and you‘ll get something like One Shoe, a comedic look at criminals, the media and the world of gold prospecting…frantic and fun, mixing criminals, small town eccentrics and greed.” —Foreword Book Review
