The new book from Trailer Park Trash & Vampires author James Wayland is ready to be unleashed upon the world! Dirty Southside Jam is a darkly hilarious thriller about a simple man who thinks he’s had a stroke of good luck, only to find he’s in way over his head. Wayland, who lives in the Virginia countryside with his family, is familiar with the small-town world of working class dead-enders, redneck drug dealers, and corrupt rural lawmen that he brings to life in this novel, and he uses it as the backdrop for a gripping tale you won’t want to put down.
But in order to bring Dirty Southside Jam to you, James Wayland needs your help. In a world of grandiose plans and outrageous fundraising goals, Wayland’s Kickstarter goal of $500 seems quite reasonable. And the fact that you can get your very own copy of Dirty Southside Jam through this Kickstarter campaign for as little as $10 amounts to an incredible deal, considering that the same book from a mainstream publisher would run you $14-17 at your local Barnes & Noble outlet. If you’re willing to throw down a bit more, you can get autographed editions of both Dirty Southside Jam and his first novel, Trailer Park Trash & Vampires. Best of all, if you drop $100, James will name a character in his next novel after you. Raining Blood, the sequel to Trailer Park Trash & Vampires, is scheduled to come out next year, and if you shell out some cash now, by the time next Halloween rolls around, you could be reading about yourself getting eaten by undead vampires! What could be cooler than that?
Wayland’s Kickstarter campaign ends on Saturday, September 21, so you’ve got about three weeks left to make your pledge. In the meantime, you can check out Wayland’s short story, “Red Bones,” for free right here on RVA Mag by clicking here. And his first novel, Trailer Park Trash & Vampires, is still available in illustrated paperback and e-book editions from Amazon. Plus, we’ll have an excerpt from Dirty Southside Jam for your reading pleasure coming up in the next couple of weeks right here on RVAMag.com, so keep an eye out for that!
