SANTA CRUZ, CA – April 12, 2011: Finders Keepers, the hilarious debut novel from author Russ Colchamiro, has been awarded a national distribution contract with Small Press United (SPU). SPU is a subsidiary of Independent Publishers Group, one of the country’s largest and most sophisticated independent press distributors.
Also available to consumers through publisher 3 Finger Prints, Finders Keepers is a fast-paced, backpacking romp across Europe, New Zealand and the galactic realm of Eternity.
The reviews are in:
“Unique and funny. … A very imaginative writer.” — Publishers Weekly
“Off-the-wall. … Like nothing else I’ve read before.” — SFBook Reviews
“Finders Keepers is a rollicking novel.” — SF & Fantasy Association of New Zealand
“SPU has an outstanding reputation in the publishing world, and its support for Finders Keepers affirms the quality and national appeal of this exhilarating and highly entertaining novel,” said 3 Finger Prints president and Finders Keepers cover artist Rich Koslowski. “We’re looking forward to a long run with SPU, with Finders Keepers hitting bookstores across the country.”
For fans of uproarious sci-fi and fantasy classics such as Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy, Christopher Moore’s Lamb and A Dirty Job, and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, plus TV shows and movies such as Quantum Leap, Time Bandits and The Big Bang Theory, Finders Keepers is a buddy story that mixes chapter-to-chapter cliffhangers with humor, heart, romance, outrageous characters and time-bending, galaxy-twisting pratfalls.
Caught in the netherworld between college and a career, novice traveler Jason Medley and adventuresome Theo Barnes stumble through hash bars and hangovers, religious zealots and stalkers, food poisoning and thunderstorms, saucy girls and overnight trains—and all under the looming specter of adult responsibility.
But when a jar of the Universe’s DNA accidentally drops to Earth from Eternity, these new friends find their loyalties put to the test—unaware that a motley crew from another realm is feverishly chasing them across the globe, with the fate of the Milky Way hanging in the balance.
Finders Keepers is the first in a planned three-book series.
