Heather Cox and Anabasis Publishing has announced the print release of California King by Heather Cox.
Former mortician, model and production designer, Heather Cox is the founder of the Los Angeles-based independent publishing house, Anabasis Publishing. She splits her time between Los Angeles and London. This is her first novel.
It’s 1981 and Hollywood is no Wonderland. The drug scene is rampant, the punk music scene is prevalent, and the city is dirtier than its star-studded sidewalks. Wounded young widow Heather arrives from New York to establish a new life. Among the veteran alcoholics and social deviants she encounters she meets Don, the ambitious musician with the heart of gold. But life is never that simple. She also begins to fall for abusive male prostitute and addict, Bobby, an intimidating and charming fugitive from Manchester. Erotic, ridiculous, always straightforward and gritty, California King follows their story of friendship, pain and obsession.
