ABOUT SOUTHERN STRIFE
 (Previously, The Promised Land):

The pain and rage of clashing cultural landscapes explode in this provocative and sobering look of America's south during the mid-1960's. Twelve-year-old Joy Bradford moves with her mother Jessica from their white Connecticut suburb to the racially divided town of Willets Point, Florida. Her friendship with Clay, a mixed-race boy and also a newcomer in town, sends shockwaves through her family and the community, increasing the growing racial tension that already exists.

Clay's well-educated, African-American father Clytus attempts to open a clothing store in the white section of downtown Willets Point. This prompts Jessica's new lawyer cum boyfriend and leader of the local Klan chapter, Bill McKendrick, to join with other white citizens in driving the family out of town. This forceful demand sets off an explosive confrontation that will change them all forever.

An absorbing and suspenseful coming-of-age story set against the tumultuous backdrop of racial tensions in mid-1960's America, Southern Strife is a spellbinding journey full of insight and intensity.

Southern Strife was previously titled "The Promise Land".


Reaching for the Gods - Laith Doory
Genre - Contemporary Fiction 
Rating - R
4.2 (9 reviews)
FREE until 9 December 2012
An offbeat, behind the scenes account of a Hollywood soap opera set in 1984 with a cast of characters including a dominatrix to the stars, a transgender hooker and an ageing actress with a very dark past.

It is the year of the Los Angeles Olympics, and Merle LaBrune plans to remain young for however long it takes for her to ascend a pantheon of Hollywood idols and be worshipped as a latter-day Aphrodite, goddess of love. However, she has the unerring feeling she is about to be dropped from the long running soap in which she stars. 

Her life is further complicated by her live-in lover’s decision to bring his daughter, Heidi, to come live with them. Heidi does her utmost to make Merle’s life a living hell.

In spite of so many cards stacked against her, Merle almost pulls it off in her ambition for godhood, banged up in jail as she atones for the sins of mankind, but her delusions are finally shattered when she is finally confronted with her true identity.
