"Toulouse-inations" Released!

Toulouse-inations is now available in paperback (174 pages), as well as a Kindle ebook edition!

The paperback retails for 12.99 but is currently discounted by Amazon to a mere 11.69. The Kindle version is being offered, as with previous JSH Book Club releases, at a ridiculously low introductory price of 99 cents (it will be 5.99 after the offer expires.)

Based on the 2008 stage play, Toulouse-inations conjures up a fanciful historical revision of Paris' declining fin de siecle days of the 1880s - as seen through the absinthe-drenched visions of painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

A number of lovely women and peculiar characters weave their way through the woof and warp of Henri's struggling art career. That career is imperiled continously by his bohemian lifestyle and alcoholism, which threatens his health and his sanity as his hallucinations increase in severity.

Included as a bonus: the original theatrical play script, along with notes on the production.

Purchase it here.

JSH Book Club is giving away a FREE print copy of The Moleskin Checklist and all you have to do to enter to win is send a DM (direct message) to either the @catclawtheatre, @telecrylic, or @jshbookclub twitter accounts!

You don't have to say anything in particular in the DM, just send one. Say "hey" or "enter me" or "yeah" or "I hope this one is better than The Devil and Daniel Boone because that one made no sense at all, you freakin' hack."

The lucky winner will be drawn from a hat (of course) on Christmas day.

The Moleskin Checklist is a detective-noir tale of a private investigator named Jack who does more chain-smoking and jazz record collecting than solving crimes. When Jack receives a disturbing package in the mail from criminals whose motives are unclear, he's reluctant to take action. But his mischievous lowlife friend Sappy - who tends to live his life as if he's in the movies - urges him to play this cinematic situation out to the hilt. They soon quickly learn, however, that real life is nothing like the movies and real villains do not behave as predictably as on TV.
