The Corpse and I

It's not every day a girl gets her picture taken with a corpse, but that's what happened to me at BEA. I went to help out at the EPIC Authors booth and next door was a booth containing a corpse in a wheelchair. Naturally, I had to check it out and I couldn't refuse when co-author Lloyd Garner offered to snap my picture with the body.

Corpse of Freedom is the title of a book by brothers Dax and Lloyd Garner, two handsome and talented young men. BEA was a stop on their "Rot 'n' Roll Tour 2008" they'd peridically take the corpse on a wheelchair tour of the convention hall. I have to say, with their moxie and great marketing sense, they're going to go far.

The book is described as "a dark suburban adventure sprinkled with humor and suspense" in which a bored teen digs up the corpse of another teenager and befriends it.

Lloyd told me the screenplay is already written, so don't be surprised if you see a movie by this title turn up at the local theater one of these days.

Oh how creepy!! But it looks like he's smiling for the photo! LOL. If I do see a movie out with that title, I will think of you and this picture. :-)

I did a double take when I first saw it, that's for sure!
