29 Dimes A Love Story by Randolph Randy Camp

EXCERPT from the award-winning story Wet Matches…

Without hesitation, Crystal digs into her purse, fishes out two crumbled five dollar bills and extends them to the smiling teen. Crystal asks, “Where’s your parents?”  Ignoring Crystal’s question, the purple-haired girl spots Jack exiting the store and dashes to meet him halfway. The lively girl quickly stuffs the two wrinkled bills into her jeans as Jack nears the car. The purple-haired girl gets Jack’s attention, ” Hi, I’m tryin’ to get enough money to get something to eat.”  Jack quickly asks, “Where’s your mom and dad?”  Crystal pokes her head out of the window and warns, “Jack, I gave her ten bucks already!”  The purple-haired girl looks at Crystal with an angry sneer then speedily turns away and steps toward the store.

Book ISBN: 978-1478273721…. Set in rural Virginia, ‘FALSE DANDELIONS’ is a contemporary Southern crime fiction novel filled with romance, small town secrets, broken dreams and murder as locals from Spotsylvania County and Fredericksburg, including a young disabled Iraq war veteran, stop a misguided band of Washington, DC criminals from setting up shop in their quiet town. When Lamar returned home from Iraq they gave him a hero’s welcome but he actually never felt like a true hero until he pulled off his greatest mission ever. A mission that will make this disabled vet a local legend, and a mission that will literally blow you away. Jesse is a rising star but when his mother’s body was found in the murky waters of the Rappahannock, he trades his prized guitar for a shotgun. Ever since Turtle was little, he was always somebody’s errand boy. Now, twenty years later, he decides to break the mold and that is just the beginning of many mistakes Turtle will make. Randolph Randy Camp’s ‘FALSE DANDELIONS’ is about the lives and dreams of underdogs. When you’re stuck in a nowhere place, physically or mentally, you dream of leaving. When you’ve been a nobody and strive to become somebody, sometimes you succeed, sometimes you don’t. Once again, this prolific award-winning writer paints a straight forward picture of contemporary Southern life and reminds us that, regardless of your income or race, there’s a touch of Jesse in all of us and there’s a little Turtle in all of us.

One
summer. Seven hearts. 29 Dimes. It wasn’t your typical LA summer. No one
could’ve predicted what happened that day in Silver Lake. It was a summer of
passion, confusion, and growth. One hot, crazy summer. Seven hungry hearts. 29
Dimes. Award-winning, prolific writer Randolph Randy Camp creates a moving,
tender love story amid a wild, crazy summer as Teki, Ronnie, Pepe, Brittany,
Kalib, Tip, and Valerie each will have an experience that will shape and change
their young lives forever. Valerie has the kind of natural beauty that belongs
on magazine covers. All the guys in Silver Lake dream about her. One guy will
get lucky this summer and win her heart. Pepe’s mouth has always gotten him into
trouble. A talented street poet, will Pepe’s provocative, ‘in your face’ anthem
‘Hear My Echo!’ get him into trouble at this summer’s Silver Lake street
festival? Teki will be the first to admit that she’s certainly not your typical
Chinese girl. A gifted musical prodigy, Teki once got kicked out of a
prestigious music academy for rocking a reggae rhythm instead of the required
Beethoven tune at her classical piano recital. Now, at seventeen, Teki fronts an
all-girl progressive reggae band in Silver Lake. Kalib is a young Armenian
computer whiz who is hoping to win Valerie’s heart this summer. Carrying the
agonizing weight of his family’s dark past on his shoulders, Kalib believes that
Valerie’s love could wash away all of that pain, if only he could somehow
convince her to go out with him. A gifted storyteller, Randolph Randy Camp
offers the reader a realistic glimpse of contemporary life in the Los Angeles
community of Silver Lake. If you still believe that love can happen to the most
unlikely people and that love still can be found in the most unusual place then
Randolph Randy Camp’s ’29 Dimes: A Love Story’ is for you. One summer. Seven
hearts. 29 Dimes.
