Plumb Crazy Tour & Giveaway



Plumb Crazy
Release Date: 06/10/14

Summary from Goodreads:
Small town country girl Elva Presley Hicks is about to attend her five-year class reunion with her best friends, Shay and Margarett.

The discovery of an old fanfic manuscript stirs up memories of her summer job as a plumber’s helper in Houston the summer before senior year. She earned a lot of money that year, but was lonely as heck.

It's not like there weren't any suitors back then. Elva could have chosen between Chase, the obese pig farmer, and Wyatt, the plumber with wandering hands. But Elva yearned for something more, and found it that fateful summer, with electrician, Mitch McCall.

It was magical. Mitch wasn't turned off by Elva's name or fan fiction writing, and Elva didn't lose interest in Mitch after he cut off his nose at work.

Trials and triumphs followed including a friendship implosion, world-wide fanfic humiliation, and goat salvation. It would go down as the most memorable summer of high school.

But as these things sometimes do, the summer romance fizzled and Elva moved on to life after high school. And while she's ready to reminisce, she is unnerved when she runs into Mitch at the reunion. Can they give it another go after so much time has passed, or are they too different now to even try?

The eclectic playlist for Plumb Crazy!

The Band Perry – "If I Die Young"
I played this one so many times because Elva's mom died when she was born. 

Sara Jarosz – Bob Dylan's "Ring the Bells"
Small towns in Texas often have church bells and they ring out for all the important things in life. Church bells ring after Elva receives her first kiss, a monumental disaster.

Middle Class Rut –"New Low"
This is really about finding your way after a new low. Elva is on a journey of reinvention.

Pete Murray – "Opportunity"
It’s all about what Elva is looking for.  She’s here to flower. 

Jack Johnson. "Banana Pancakes"
I can see Elva and Mitch kicking back with this song.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJs9c__Xvf4&feature=related

Seether – "Country Song"
I can imagine Elva playing this and shouting out loud.
Elvis Presley – "Love Me Tender" and "Jailhouse Rock",
How could I not include some Elvis on this playlist?

She and Him – "In the Sun"
You know whatever it is, it's all right and okay.  Elva keeps it all in the sun too.

Mumford and Son – "Awake My Soul"
Elva is really calling out for a soul to awake. This is a perfect song for her.

Trisha Yearwood – "She's in Love with the Boy"
Of course, I had a big romantic ballad to write to.
