The Indie Spirit

This weekend I met Conrad Trump ,who was signing books at the Berkely Springs Apple Butter Festival. He’s published several short stories under the name Chapin Shaw Tucker, but he decided to publish his novel under his real name. Parisa is about an injured champion snowboarder from West Virginia who accidentally releases an ancient magical spirit.

It sure looks like his home town is rallying behind him. There was a wonderful profile in the local paper, the Morgan Messenger, and Douglas Autos was advertising the book on their traffic stopping electronic sign. Berkeley Springs is an Arts town, with a growing population of local authors.

Can’t wait to read the book!
