Stella and Jessica are about to discover everyone’s an Elvis fan; some people just don’t know it yet.

Abstract:
Stella and Jessica are about to discover everyone’s an Elvis Fan; some people just don’t know it yet. Tormented by memories of “The Incident,” Stella and Jessica, two down-and-out reporters, will do anything to save their careers, even if it means becoming Elvis fans. Surviving Elvis Week explores how life doesn’t always turn out the way you planned. Heartfelt and hilarious, this modern day parody of Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, is a touching portrayal of the comic and tragic moments that occur along the road to redemption. An impressive and triumphant debut—it is at once romantic, surprising and completely unforgettable. A must-read!

  GREAT READ! BEST BOOK IN YEARS! , 08/17/2009
Reviewer: Stuart
This is a perfect edge of your seat, laugh out loud, funniest books I have read in years. I have been in a rut with the last few books I have read and this one threw me out of the rut and back in the fast lane! I feel priviledged that I was one of hte first to read it because this is going to be a popular book. Love their work can't wait for another one from these 2 authors.

  What a fun read! , 08/18/2009
Reviewer: Bette J Brown
What a fun read! I loved the trip that followed Murphy’s Law: Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. The characters come to life in this wild romp to visit Graceland and the places along the way that speak to those who are true Elvis fans. Serendipity rules in the lives of these vivid characters with friendship and true love surviving the ride. Anyone who has taken a long bus ride with strangers will identify with the boredom, the smells, and the felling of your life being out of control or at least under the control of others. Many of the individuals in the book, sometimes with great difficulty, undergo a change in terms of everything from appearance to outlook. Their day by day masks collapse to reveal the true human beings lurking beneath. This work of fiction amply illustrates living in terms of second chances, everyday facades, unexpected death, and the willingness to go forward when the easiest (and perhaps the wisest) choice would be to just give it all up! The book definitely illustrates the adage that the journey is more significant than the destination.
