We're going to be a publisher. By late summer or early fall of 2010 Laughing Dog Press is excited to announce the publication, as an e-book, of our first title.
Norman's Conquest by our very own Pete Ledesma tells the story of one week in the life of Norman Sloat. Short, near-sighted and lacking most of his hair and an equal amount of self-confidence, Norman teaches science at Millard Fillmore High School. Hyperaware of his own inadequacy, Norman fantasizes, not about bodacious babes or world conquest, but the middling and realistic fantasy – he feels – of bedding fellow teacher Glenda Balzac. Short, sharp-tongued, near-sighted and nearly androgynous, Glenda teaches remedial English. But Norman, a socially inept military history buff, appears to have no real hope of achieving even this modest aspiration. Enter Rick DaSilva, ex-pro football star, bon-vivant, and current head football coach at Fillmore. Suddenly, Norman finds himself thrust into a slippery seven day adventure. Poker, boxing, Indian bingo, cock fighting, women...at Rick's side, Norman will experience it all - and then some.
Please stay tuned for information about Norman's Conquest.
