Carla Harvey, one half of the female-fronted duo that screams for the BUTCHER BABIES, will be releasing her upcoming novel, Death and Other Dances, on August 25 in select bookstores, as well as Amazon, Amazon Europe, and Kindle. This semi-autobiographical work tells the story of Autumn Franklin – an awkward, biracial Detroit native – that is disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background.
When Autumn’s young parents divorce, she becomes even more withdrawn, yet survives the cards that she’s been dealt by relocating to the alluring City of Angels, where she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between a drastic career change: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.
In anticipation of her novel’s release, Carla Harvey will appear at Los Angeles’ Book Soup for a signing and reading on August 28th at 7PM.Â Death and Other Dances can be pre-ordered now here by clicking on this linkÂ http://carlaharvey.bigcartel.com/product/death-and-other-dances-presale.
LA’s extreme metallers, the BUTCHER BABIES, released their debut album, Goliath, last year to critical acclaim, with press hailing it as a “relentless, full-force storm from start to finish” (New Transcendence.com). For a preview of Goliath, be sure to check out the music video for “Magnolia Blvd.“. The album can be purchased digitally at iTunes and as a CD at CM Distro.
