Butcher Babies Singer Carla Harvey To Release First Novel “Death And Other Dances”


Butcher Babies vocalist Carla Harvey will release her first book, “Death And Other Dances” on Monday, August 25th. The following synopsis was provided for the semi-autobiographical novel:

“Autumn Franklin is an awkward, biracial girl growing up in a suburb of Detroit. Already disconnected from her peers at an early age because of her background, she becomes even more withdrawn when her young parents divorce. Ever changing but stubbornly tenacious, she survives the cards she’s been dealt by playing them against the odds. Hurt her and she will not hesitate to “kill you off,” making it easier to walk away.

Transplanting herself from her factory-driven hometown to the alluring City of Angels, she has but one goal: to find herself. Struggling to make solid connections with those around her, Autumn swallows her reservations and pushes limits to the extreme as she transitions between two drastic career changes: from the bowels of the adult entertainment industry to her rebirth as a mortician. There amongst the dead, she learns what it is to live, love, and to allow others inside, finally landing in the most comfortable place of all: her own skin.”

A release party will be held at Book Soup in Los Angeles, CA on August 28th at 7pm with Harvey on hand to sign and provide a reading. Pre-orders for the book can be found here. A new album from the Butcher Babies is also currently in the works.
