Featured Work: Wine, Women, & Song by John Hartness

Clicking Keys would like to congratulate John G. Hartness on the upcoming release of Wine, Women, & Song, the collected edition of Bubba the Monster Hunter, Season 3!

About the Book

It’s been a year since Bubba settled things with his crazy brother Jason once and for all, and what a year it’s been! The third volume of collected Bubba stories contains more monsters, more inter-dimensional travel, more duels to the death, and more guitar solos than any other season of Bubba yet!

Wine, Women, & Song is a collected edition including the following four novellas:
Moon over Bourbon Street
Night at the Museum
Midsummer
Oh Bubba, Where Art Thou?

Moon Over Bourbon Street – Bubba and the team are on vacation in New Orleans, but it’s anything but easy! There are vampires hunting people, a hot chick in black leather on a Harley, and a butt-nekkid voodoo priest! How in the world is Bubba supposed to stop drinking Hurricanes and figure this mess out?

Night at the Museum – Bubba gets all cultured up when a mysterious figure from Uncle Father Joe’s past drags him into a mess of romantic entanglements, butt-kicking suits of armor, ticked-off museum exhibits, and disembodied vampire heads trying to kill him. And that’s not even the scary stuff!

Midsummer – By far the most high-brow Bubba adventure ever, which ain’t saying much. There are missing kids in Nashville, and Bubba and Agent Amy are called in to investigate. Bubba has to learn how to put an app on his phone, then gets sucked into a dimension with no cell service when Shakespeare meets Pokemon Go! Bubba has to find the missing girls, escape from prison, and rassle an alligator before he can get back home and get some famous hot chicken!

Oh Bubba, Where Art Thou – a Christmas romp full of guest stars as Bubba tries to save the country music industry from Auto-Tune, Bro Country, and demons. Guest star Hank Williams Sr. takes Bubba through time in this redneck Christmas Carol. Can Bubba save country music, or are we doomed to an eternity of Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line?

About the Author

John G. Hartness is a teller of tales, a righter of wrong, defender of ladies’ virtues, and some people call him Maurice, for he speaks of the pompatus of love. He is also the best-selling author of the EPIC-Award-winning series The Black Knight Chronicles from Bell Bridge Books, a comedic urban fantasy series that answers the eternal question “Why aren’t there more fat vampires?”

A graduate of Winthrop University, John lives in Charlotte with his wife Suzy and a very demanding cat. In other lives, he has been an actor, lighting designer, theatre consultant, salesman, electronics technician, and arts administrator. He put his theatre performance degree to good use in the early 2000s, when he served as Managing Director of the Off-Tryon Theatre Company and President of both the Metrolina Theatre Association and the North Carolina Theatre Conference.

Since turning from stage to page, John has published over 20 short stories, half a dozen novels, a good fistful of novellas, and several anthologies. John is the author of the Bubba the Monster Hunter series of comic shorts, the Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter novella series, and the creator and co-editor of the Big Bad anthology series, among other projects.

In 2016, John teamed up with a pair of other publishing industry ne’er-do-wells and founded Falstaff Books, a publishing conglomerate dedicated to pushing the boundaries of literature and entertainment.

In his copious free time John enjoys long walks on the beach, rescuing kittens from trees and recording new episodes of the podcast Authors & Dragons, where he plays a Pathfinder game with five other fantasy authors. John is also a contributor to the Magical Words group blog. An avid Magic: the Gathering player, John is strong in his nerd-fu and has sometimes been referred to as “the Kevin Smith of Charlotte, NC.” And not just for his girth.
