Cannes: TAKE NO PRISONERS a novella

It is with great pleasure I announce the first Soccerboy in LA book, Cannes: TAKE NO PRISONERS a novella! It’s a very exciting time, and it’s been very difficult to keep this all under wraps. Generally, this is the space I’d write about things like this but I had to tell myself to wait, be patient.

Well the wait is over, and the book is available right now on Amazon Kindle! But what if I have an ipad, you ask? Get the kindle app; it’s free! The best part, the book carries a special price, it’s only $3.99! Get it now before the price goes up. It’s perfect for the beach, the plane, the train, and the automobile – if you’re a passenger.

But what is it about? Remember the Cannes Diary, the day-by-day recounting of my first trip to Cannes that appeared here back in 2009? Well, I’ve re-written it and expanded it to novella length. That means more action, more ridiculousness, and more naughtiness for your pleasure. Tell your friends that you heard about it first, tell your mama, your dad, your grandma, your brothers and sisters, your cousins and even your enemies. They deserve to be entertained too, yo.

Here’s the official description:

CANNES: TAKE NO PRISONERS a novella is the first book from the writer of the wildly popular Soccerboy in LA blog, Malcolm Devine. The novella follows his real adventures from a trip to the internationally famous Cannes Film Festival, where he was a producer shooting a documentary television show. The subject of the show he’s producing does product placement for films and the event planning for the films’ premiere parties. Alex must deal with a various array of crazy difficulties with the crew, with the host of the show and even his executive producer who have all been seduced by the notorious naughtiness of the Cannes Film Festival to get the show shot and sold.

Best of all, there’s a trailer to whet your appetite! It gives you an idea of the craziness that goes on in the book. And it’s told in a postmodern avant-garde expressionist style. If you’re going to make a book trailer, might as well make it a piece of entertainment in and of itself, right? That’s how we do here.

I’m extremely proud that this is my first book.
