This week, the story virtually wrote itself. I was driving to work in T-Hoe, listening to the 70s on Sirius XM, when the urge struck. The minute I got to school, I popped in my flash drive and typed it up. VOILA! Another fake book from Val. Enjoy.
Mild: From Lost to Found in the Hall of the Mountain Kings
Sal Thethicktorian sets out with her landlady, Lillith Findstrom, on a trek through the Pyrenees, in a quest to find themselves. What they find is much, much more than either had bargained for.
Out strolling on a very hot summer day, they remove their backpacks and wineskins, and lie down to rest in a field of tall grass. That’s when things grow cloudy.
Sal dreams that she’s an overfed long-haired leaping gnome, starring in a Hollywood movie. She and Lillith trek on, sipping wine from the goatskins. Before dusk, they stumble into the Hall of the Mountain Kings.
What will Sal and Lillith find? Will they spill the wine? Dig up that girl? IS it just a dream?
Read how Sal and Lillith get lost, and what they find. (129 words)
Fake Reviews for My Fake Book:
Eric Burdon..."Val's book literally SINGS with well-crafted prose. If you don't fake-buy it, this means WAR!"
Farz Findstrom..."This book makes me want to move out of our three-story Victorian home in Minneapolis, leave my overbearing wife Lillith, chuck the whole dermatologist career, and devote my life to writing tales one-tenth as good as Mild."
Pony Thevictorian..."Nay! Not my style. I don't care about what happens to Sal or Lillith. In fact, I don't care about people at all. But I heartily recommend this book, because my mom wrote it"
Anonymous..."All I have to say is: 'Fake-buy this book!' If my name is mentioned even one time in it, I'd better get at least half of the fake-proceeds."
