‘Miss Whoop Whoop! and the Jumping Pumpkin’ by Craig Carden. Set in two of the most buzzworthy nightclubs ever invented, ‘Miss Whoop Whoop! and the Jumping Pumpkin’ is a wild romp of unusual characters, fun and games, and catch-me-if-you-can theft and deception. As the partying goes on, including dancing, gaming, talent contests and much more, a brilliant mind is at work. Someone extremely clever is outwitting the owners of the Jumping Pumpkin and the Ice Castle. Crime after crime takes place and the identity of the thief becomes an increasingly frustrating mystery. Just who is this most bizarre of thieves and how are they managing to crack the club’s security codes?
In reading ‘Miss Whoop Whoop! and the Jumping Pumpkin’ you will find yourself on a mind ride like no other. See where it takes you. It has also been made available through Draft2Digital to ten other publishing platforms. I hope you can join me and Craig Carden in wishing the story of Miss Whoop Whoop! good fortune.
And so I flew on,
but not as freely as before,
because I will forever remember
the time of darkness
and those precious, precious
moments in the sun
when I were you, and you were me,
and together we were one.
This poem opens the love story ‘Easter Beside an Estuary’ by Craig Carden. It is set in a farming and wilderness area in Zululand, South Africa. The eBook was published some years ago. This week saw the publication of the paperback version.
The photo used for the paperback cover was taken by the author on an isolated South African beach. It is the beach where Brad and Karl spent many happy hours. It is also close to where tragedy came out of the night… http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DGW3BGE
Those who have read Craig Carden’s ‘Easter Beside an Estuary’ have called it a “beautiful love story” and ‘tenderly written”. Brad Peters and Karl van Aswegen meet at a top boarding school, where they fall in love. Their affair reaches its height on a citrus farm in rural Zululand, South Africa. They ride together, swim naked, fish and make love. Brad, the blond and highly artistic one and Karl, the dark-haired sport player, want their closeness to go on forever. Karl’ s turbulent and brooding older brother Stephan, the crocodiles in the river and the snakes in the steamy undergrowth, are not their only danger. One far, far greater comes out of a hot South African night…
