Each of these epic dramas carry the reader across the state of Florida to discover details that most people have missed.

CA – New Year’s Babble Eve 2016

00-hbo2016

Join Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman (the co-hosts of the wildly-popular podcast, HOLLYWOOD BABBLE-ON) on New Year’s Eve for Babble-On Comic Con Theatre at 8:00 PM and a live recording of the podcast at 10:00 PM!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

CA – No Man’s Land Signing

000_fenn_nml

Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks, Shameless) signs her new children’s book No Man’s Land at Dark Delicacies on Saturday January 14th at 2:00 PM. She will sign one additional item free with purchase of the book.  Miss Fenn will be autographing additional photos from her personal collections for $35.

A YOUNG BOY’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE LAND OF “NOs” ——- “NO!” was the answer given to everything and everyone the little boy encountered. Not even his loving mother would be able to sway him into a cooperative “YES.” As time went on, the frustration of losing friends and becoming more isolated in his own “No Man’s Land” caused the little boy to grow lonelier and sadder each day. In a story that may not be too uncommon, Sherilyn Fenn sensitively helps explore a seemingly troubled boy’s life and how, in his great despair, he copes with being alone. She seeks to reveal how the smallest of adjustments in perception change and uplift one’s life. The lesson of No Man’s Land will ring true in the hearts of parents and children alike. So simple a lesson, yet so vast.
