Chosen as a finalist in the Summer Writing Contest, an international novella competition, sponsored by 1888, JukePop, and Black Hill Press, 29 BBQs offers readers a peek into Orange County's semi-transient population living the high life in Newport Beach. Homelessness. Love affairs. And a whole lot of other stuff...broken refrigerators, retired surf boards, upside-down motorcycles and Marv must move all of it each month if he wants to keep his arrangement with the leasing company whose 150 properties he currently oversees. Marv is used to collecting things in bulk and then hiding the things he collects--that is until the Collins family moves in. The Collins aren't oddballs. Not even close. If straight were a razor, they'd be a Brazilian wax. But soon these two worlds must collide, and when they do, watch out!--because you never know who might be the one going to jail next or whose revenge is the sweetest.
