The Real Alice Cooper Wants To Be Famous by Louis Peddicord

The Real Alice Cooper Wants To Be Famousby Louis Peddicord

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

NOTE: This novel has absolutely nothing to do with a former rock star who called himself Alice Cooper.

Rather, “The Real Alice Cooper Wants To Be Famous” is a suspense thriller, a saga of questing men and women, and a multi-layered love story. It is a wide-ranging, fully-realized novel wherein lives are ripped apart and rebuilt . . . minds are lost . . . murders are committed . . . children are born, and souls are lost and regained.

Much of the novel’s action takes place at Holy Mansion Monastery, a place of studied calm sequestered in the midst of the ongoing dysfunction of the modern world. A handful of monks there along with Brother Gilroy, abbot of the Monastery, are placidly going about their lives when one Alice Cooper, an escapee from an imploded marriage, crashes into their lives. Alice has always had dreams of fame for herself and when a dead derelict inadvertently offers her a shot at such fame, Alice jumps on it with a vengeance.

Needless to say, complications ensue. There is first the matter of Benjamin P. Cooper, CPA, Alice’s discarded husband, who descends into a world of frightful madness and who relentlessly pursues Alice over the years to come. There is also Bradford Hymen, a Maryland State trooper who believes his life has been ruined by this wanton woman. Not least of all there is a thuggish federal government which knows full well that it knows best when it comes to how we work our lives.

Through it all, Alice Cooper has as her guiding star this notion of fame–she must have it, come hell or high water. Ultimately she does achieve everything she’s wished for, and “The Real Alice Cooper” is an account of the rewards that flow from that mania — along with the price of the quest.

The children she bears, the new mate she treasures, the bright and shiny future Alice Cooper explores–these are all grist in the storytelling. It is a telling that is rich in fabric and context while unwrapping the skein of motivations and miscues that mark any individual’s life. Alice and so many of her companions in this years-long saga become real to the reader–both as unique people and as object lessons in our own quest for meaning.

DESCRIPTION:

Forget cute fairies in pretty dresses.

In the world of Aluvia, most fairies are more like irritable, moody insects, and almost everyone views the fairy keeper mark as a gift. But not fourteen-year-old Sierra. She hates being a fairy keeper, but the birthmark is right there on the back of her neck. It shows everyone she was born with the natural ability to communicate, attract, and even control the tiny fairies whose nectar is amazingly powerful.

Fairy nectar can heal people, but it is also a key ingredient in synthesizing Flight, an illegal elixir that produces dreaminess, apathy and hallucinations. She’s forced to care for a whole hive of the bee-like beasties by her Flight-dealing, dark alchemist father.

Then one day, Sierra discovers the fairies of her hatch are mysteriously dead. The fairy queen is missing. Her father’s Flight operation is halted, and he plans to make up for the lost income by trading her little sister to be an elixir runner for another dark alchemist, a dangerous thug. Desperate to protect her sister, Sierra convinces her father she can retrieve the lost queen and get his operation up and running.

The problem? Sierra’s queen wasn’t the only queen to disappear. They’re all gone, every single one, and getting them back will be deadly dangerous.

Sierra journeys with her best friend and her worst enemy–assigned by her father to dog her every step–to find the missing queens. Along the way, they learn that more than just her sister’s life is at stake if they fail.

There are secrets in the Skyclad Mountains where the last wild fairies were seen. The magic Sierra finds there has the power to transform their world, but only if she can first embrace her calling as a fairy keeper.

DESCRIPTION:

Five years ago, Lee Jordan was nearly killed on the job. Now deaf, blind, and mute, he’s recovered enough to live a routine but silent life.

However, now, the LAPD needs him back…

When the cases of many missing persons are tied together with the same M.O., Lee Jordan is called in to help locate people who seemingly walked away from their everyday lives. But did they? Lee’s only assets are his guide dog, fourteen years of experience as a homicide detective–and an intriguing American Sign Language translator named Rachel.

Just as Lee begins to discover something remarkable about himself, he must engage in a battle of wits with a murderer he can’t see or hear. With no weapons but his own mind–and a guide dog with a heart of gold–he sets off alone in Los Angeles to investigate the disappearances.

It’s only a matter of time before more people may die under nefarious circumstances. And the manner of death could put the entire city at risk from…something even more dangerous.

Lee Jordan knows there is more to fighting crime than meets the eye, or ear, or voice. But will he survive his courageous solo pursuit of a twisted killer on the mean streets of L.A.? And can he really stop a madman by himself?
