  1. Hi,

    My name is Chris Tusa, and my novel, Dirty Little Angels, is due out
    March 1st from the University if West Alabama. I am writing because I
    was hoping you’d be willing to consider my novel for inclusion in your
    blog (or for possible review). I’ve provided a brief summary below:

    Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and
    abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year
    old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of
    financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to
    God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her
    faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by
    Moses’s lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin
    spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert
    into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses’s twisted
    religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and
    Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from
    which there may be no escape.
