Publication date announced: Haunted Housewives of Allister Alabama
New York, NY (September 11, 2012) – World Weaver Press is pleased to announce The Haunted Housewives of Allister, Alabama (A Cleo Tidwell Paranormal Mystery) by Susan Abel Sullivan, will be available this October with an ebook-only release on October 16, 2012 and a full print and ebook release on October 30, 2012.
The Haunted Housewives of Allister, Alabama is fabulously fun! Not only is it a clever mystery, but it’s a great romp through pop culture and Elvis mania, chock full of Southern charm. Cleo Tidwell is a great, quirky narrator whose wit and charm — not to mention her propensity to get into trouble — will put readers in mind of Stephanie Plum.
Here’s a first taste of the forthcoming The Haunted Housewives of Allister, Alabama:
Who knew one gaudy Velvet Elvis could lead to such a heap of haunted trouble?
When Cleo Tidwell said, “I do,” for the third time, she had no idea her marriage vows would be tested by a tacky piece of art. But Cleo’s not the kind of woman to let a velvet-offense-against-good-taste just hang — oh no, she’s on a mission to oust the King. Trouble is, Elvis won’t leave the building. And he’s attractin’ all manner of kooks, fanatics, and lookie loos to Cleo’s doorstep, including the entire congregation of the Church of the Blue Suede Shoes.
Everyone wants a piece of the painting, but Cleo’s starting to suspect that whatever’s haunting the Velvet Elvis wants a piece of her husband. Why else would her hubby trade in his car for a ’56 pink Caddy, moonlight as an Elvis impersonator, and develop a sudden hankering for fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches? Certainly it can’t be anything as simple as a mid-life crisis, because Cleo is not getting divorced again — her mother would never let her hear the end of it.
Cleo’s life is all shook up by crazies with death threats, psychic warnings “from beyond,” kidnapping attempts, invitations to join the Blue Shoe Loonies, and even murder! Cleo’s in a fight for her life, her marriage, and the perseverance of good taste everywhere.
The Haunted Housewives of Allister, Alabama will be available via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and other retailers in ebook on October 16, 2012, and in print on October 30, 2012.
