    A Tale Of Two Turkeys (Maybe Three)

    It was the best of times; it was the worst of times. . .  No, scratch that. It was the worst of times. January at the multiplex. A time for Uwe Boll, for DOA comedies starring Ted Danson and Queen Latifah, for loser thrillers and stale action pics (can I get a Rambo!), and for the JJ Abrams “high concept” film, Cloverfield.

    Here's the cover for the new novel, Softspoken, due out April fifteenth.

    Here's a review:

    Here's what publishers weekly had to say:

    "In this sultry contemporary Southern gothic from Shepard (Trujillo), Sanie
    Bullard, a 28-year-old frustrated writer, is stuck in a stultifying marriage
    and husband Jackson's dilapidated antebellum family mansion in South
    Carolina, where the couple has returned so he can study for his bar exams in
    peace. His brother, Will, is addled with peyote as well as the family's
    weirdness; sister Louise is stranger still. Sanie, at loose ends in the
    "eminently hauntable" family home, hears voices. Unafraid of the ghostly
    voices, Sanie sees the house-and the Bullards-not as monstrous but as a
    "frail, musty puzzle she wants to solve." However, the puzzle is stranger
    and far darker than Sanie imagines. This memorable short novel careens
    through the mundane realities of a Southern small town, from bizarre
    revelations of decadent family history and strange supernatural theory to a
    violent and unexpected conclusion"

    Hello...and goodbye
    I'm forsaking the idea of a journal and doing a group blog with Liz Hand, Paul Witcover, and Paul Di Filippo.
