One Pink Muscle to Go
Raunchy, Existential, Comedy!
and Hardback coming soon.
One Pink Muscle to
Go is a dark comedy about the stratification of
society; unforgiving big business, socially acceptable insanity
and a search for a reality where one can live and find happiness
in the midst of it all…and there is the timeless wisdom… always
appreciate and support your local strippers.
Rivertown, West Virginia was not prepared for the return of
Abigail “Abby” O'Shea. The once sleepy town along the
Monongahela River opposite Stillwell, West Virginia and its
university are changing forever by a seemingly overwhelming
confluence of events. All is not as it appears, as the “new
normal” has come home to roost in a community completely
transformed since O'Shea’s childhood.
The arrival of numerous big box stores, myriad franchise
retailers, countless video gambling shops, the horde of
hydraulic fracturing workers descending on the region and the
ever-expanding institute of higher education result in a
continuous remaking of the landscape and its residents. This
while a disturbing number of people succumb to pharmaceutically
It could be any town in America except for the extraordinary
dynamics in play that make it a story that could only take place
in Rivertown, West Virginia. The fast expanding hamlet sits atop
an old burning coal mine as investors, property developers and
others pour in by the day.
Beautiful young women make their way through life dancing. A
local mining and natural gas tycoon, Baron Hardinger, has
difficulty with his ornamental hermit as stockholders hound him
for answers on some very shaky investments. Emmett Lee Ray, the
overworked unappreciated multitasking dynamo that serves as
mayor, chief of police and fire chief discovers that things are
escalating far beyond his abilities as the pace of life in the
small town quickens. A self-righteous preacher and his frenzied
unforgiving flock prove to be an explosive mixture in this
apocalyptic tale of the America Dream.
