Hometown film director, Adam Drake, welcomed creative minds to join him in Sparta, TN on Sat. June 22, 2013 for the premiere of his movie, THE POD, a science-fiction thriller. Koko Nervelli was one of the authors invited to attend. She gave a sneak peak of her new books, "SUSPENDED" and "THE LIE." (Koko is second from the left rocking the shorts on a hot summer evening.) As always, she is wearing her signature "thinking cap."
People from the past came out of the woodwork. It was humbling and exciting! The Lenoir News Topic wrote a fantastic article about the book and the local places that inspired it. 20% of sales went to support the Caldwell Heritage Museum. They have some extra copies if you missed the event. Pick yours up there, or order from Amazon. (Note: Dates are wrong on pictures. oopsy.)

KOKO NERVELLI BOOKS
The release of HOPE SUCKS! is a new writing experience for me. It is my first attempt at non-fiction. I wrote it as much for myself as for y'all, as I go into some of my important Life Lessons and share my personal experiences with my beloved readers.
Keep watching for upcoming book signings and vendor locations. In the meantime, please visit Amazon.com to order your copy of this and other creative works.
As always, thank you for your support.
