Absolutely Amazing eBooks Presents THE NAKED GIRL IN THE TREEHOUSE by Mark Howell

At this very minute the Rolling Stones -- Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and their wild bandmates -- are touring North America. Earlier this week the boys were in Detroit. Tomorrow they'll play Orchard Park, New York. Then they wrap it up on July 15 in Quebec City.

They call it the Zip Code Tour.

But are you sure it's the Stones?

Mark Howell chuckles as he recalls how easy it was to fool people when he and a pal crossed America, their British accents convincing pretty young women that they were members of the "Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World." He says, "We had a blast."

Howell's book about it - titled The Naked Girl In The Treehouse - might be called a roman à clef, a true story masquerading as fiction. It's a hilarious romp, the mad misadventures of two English lads crossing America in 1964 in an electric-blue Plymouth Savoy.

Mark Howell went on to become "legendary" in the publishing world, that term applied to him by Paperback Fanatic. His career stretched from Montreal to London, New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. He edited romance books, ghostwrote spy novels, published pulp paperbacks. His name became known in the underground publishing world. In Florida in the 1980s, as editor and senior writer of the Key West arts and politics publication, Solares Hill, he won 17 journalism awards.

But Howell's favorite accolades came from those who thought he was a Rolling Stone, a pretense that held up well until an astute Midwestern girl noted that newspapers were reporting the Stones to be in California at that moment, not here in her presence!

Howell's pal emerged from a confessional "talk" with his girlfriend du jour, nose freely bleeding. "Well, I think that went pretty well," he announced.

As did their odyssey.

"All is true," states the narrator of this funny almost-true novel from Mark Howell. But like they say, why let truth get in the way of a good story.
