Book Description: In Magnolias, Sweet Tea, and Exhaust, Carole Townsend goes to ground with NASCAR, following the races at Southern tracks from one to the next, learning about the sport and the culture of NASCAR as she goes. Townsend meets and interviews top drivers as well as some of NASCAR’s rising stars, legends, team owners, pit crews, and fans. In a display of immersion journalism at its best, Townsend takes a ride in one of the cars on a track at race speed, tours the multimillion dollar garages in North Carolina, learns from mechanics, mingles with fans, and participates in the much-coveted infield camping party at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gaining behind-the-scenes access at races, she experiences up close the dedication, competition, and precision of NASCAR teams during qualifying trials and races. Some of the interviews and viewpoints included in the book are 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee Rex White (the 1960 NASCAR Grand National Champion), David Ragan (winner of the 2013 Talladega May race) and his pit crew chief Jay Guy, top contender Clint Bowyer, and driver Johanna Long, the 20-year-old Nationwide Series phenomenon. Team owner Michael Waltrip and 16-year-old rising star Mason Massey also talk with Townsend about the sport’s popularity, its changing face, and today’s challenges. Townsend also covers NASCAR and its “good old boy” roots in bootlegging, as well as Southern food and hospitality as represented by that great tradition—tailgating (a sport in itself). She also discusses the fascinating evolution of NASCAR racing rules and the growing popularity of NASCAR abroad. This is a perfect book for the avid NASCAR fan as well as the more casual fan looking to learn more about this growing phenomenon!

Book Description: This book springs from the imagination. All characters, with the exception of Brett Michaels, and every situation and scenario are fictitious. It is not intended to depict any real person, whether living or deceased. When Brett Michaels is mentioned, it is not the person which is meant but the personality he projects both on stage and on TV. The geography of Western New York has been changed. The quotes from the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid are merely used to express an emotion in an amusing way. In this depiction of an intelligent yet underachieving adult wavering between boredom and the desire for meaning in life, I have attempted to combine the commonplace with the pressing feeling that there must be something more. Danny Gables has just turned thirty years old and he is without direction. He must make a decision but any decision he makes will negate the possibility of the other. Should he commit to what is expected of him, and thus commit to his home-town ways? Or should he meander along and hold out for the possibility that life has more to offer? He spends his time chasing women and frequenting bars, which provide him with the genuine reflections that are lacking in his real life of work and routine. But one day it strikes him to begin an investigation an impractical quest for authenticity that frustrates the people that know him, compromises the tenuous condition of a loved one, and sends him on a path filled with reflections, road trips, too much drinking and general frivolity. Cynical yet droll, rich in sarcasm and brute truism, The Intermittent proves to be a lesson in existentialism.

Book Description: From Victoria Powers’ poverty-stricken upbringing, the only thing her mother passed down to her was this spiteful prophecy: “Nobody will remember you fifteen minutes after your funeral . . .” Now a world-class architect, Victoria is determined to prove her mother wrong. But life isn’t simple as she juggles a daughter’s resentment, a son’s weakness, and a socialite’s vendetta. To make matters worse, she has never allowed a man to dictate her world, but now two men command her thoughts. When her past and present collide, neither the sanctity of Mont Saint Michel, nor the pastoral simplicity of Switzerland can rectify the damage. Protecting all she holds dear and preserving her legacy will require More Than Meets the Eye.
