But where's the bong?

My rockin' publisher, VHP, has not only created a cover for my novel but a bunch of fun stuff that has the cover on it that can be ordered here.Given that the novel's characters do a lot of drinking, a beer stein is appropriate.
Dogs love to be dressed in For the May Queen shirts.
Underwear with the novel's logo is quite appropriate, too, since there's a lot of sex in the book.

The only apropos item missing is a For the May Queen bong.

Oh, and the novel can be purchased as well in the near future. I'll let you know as soon as I find out when pre-orders are happening.

Here's what the illustrious Collin Kelley says about the novel:

"The 80s were all about drugs, alcohol and casual sex, and Kate Evans deftly conveys the uncertainty of the era as her feisty Norma Rogers leaves a sheltered home life and dives headfirst into a series of hedonistic adventures at college, including falling in love with Chuck, who just doesn't seem to be that in to her. The clever dialogue, unexpected twists and a meticulous sense of time and place evoke the immediacy of memoir. Funny, poignant and ultimately a testament to lasting friendship, For The May Queen is a trip back to the not-so-distant-past without the hangover."

Collin Kelley, author of Slow To Burn and After the Poison
