New novel from Darlene Franklin Campbell

Local author Darlene Franklin Campbell, whose previous works include I Listened, Momma and Uncommon Clay, has announced her new novel, Looking for Pork Chop McQuade. The novel goes on sale October 18, 2012. Darlene plans to kick off sales by doing a book signing at the new CVS Pharmacy located on Jamestown Street. The CVS store will carry the new novel, and the book will also be available from Autumn Skies Press, from and from other outlets. It will also be available as a Kindle edition.

About the new novel:
Upon the death of her father, Cupcake McQuade became the caregiver of her morbidly obese and perpetually depressed mother and sister. While she received guidance from her aging Great-Uncle Faucett, she longed for emotional support. Therefore, she married the first man to enter her life, Bob (Pork Chop) McQuade, who turned out to be a conspiracy theorist. Now, eighteen years later, her mother is dead, her sister lives across the road, Uncle Faucett has succumbed to Alzheimer’s and Bob? Bob is missing. In an attempt to find her husband and return her life to normal, Cupcake accepts the help of local sheriff, Daniel Ransom, a man driven by guilt. As they set out to find Bob, Cupcake discovers another person who has been missing from her life—herself.
