The world is full of bad books written by amateurs. But why settle for the merely regrettable? Atlanta Nights is a bad book written by experts. -- T. Nielsen Hayden
Atlanta Nights is a book that could only have been produced by an author well-versed in believable storylines, set in conditions that exist today, with believable every-day characters. Accepted by a Traditional Publisher, it is certain to resonate with an audience. It fits their specialty like a glove.
All proceeds from this book go to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Emergency Medical Fund.

"Geez, Bobby, give it a rest..." ...are we a tad on the sensitive side today? Why not worry about your own literary efforts as opposed to what Travis Tea is doing? Last time I checked, anyone is free to publish on lulu.com, and that's exactly what was done here. The fact that it was successful seems to be sticking in your craw. Get over it. "Atlanta Nights" is funny, the story behind it is hysterical, and it is serving a very worthwhile purpose out in the literary community, something you yourself would be well advised to emulate. Drop the sour grapes, it doesn't become you.
Atlanta Nights will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you laugh so hard you cry and cry so hard that you laugh or do both at the same time, creating a kind of wheezy sound. What more can you really ask for in a novel?
"Thank God for lulu.com" Thank you, Lulu.com, for providing a home for writing both good and bad, without prejudice and without calling yourself a traditional publisher. Give me your wired, your bore, Your writing classes yearning to publish for free, The wretched refused of your scheming shore. Send these, the bookless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my Lulu beside the golden snore.
"Oh Atlanta Nights" “Oh Atlanta” is one of my all-time favourite songs. It’s by a band called Little Feat from their album “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now” which is a pun. The studio version is just fine but there’s a couple of live versions floating around, one of which is the greatest, foot-stompingest-get-this-party-going-NOW song you’ll ever wrap your ears around. Or vice versa. “Atlanta Nights” is a book which has a lot in common with the song except for the words “Oh” and “Nights.” It is a collaborative effort featuring some of the finest literary minds since “Naked Came the Stranger,” which could also be a pun if your mind was in naughty mode. To the surprise of no one, “Atlanta Nights” was accepted for publication by Publish America. It was to be “given a chance” like PA’s other 8,000....wait....9,000....hold on a sec, updates still coming in here...10,000....holy moley!....11,000-and-counting other books. Then, the poor, beleaguered, numb-lipped, night shift Message... More > Board Scanner employed by Publish America to track the goings-on in the real world, discovered the hideous truth: “Atlanta Nights” was written by professional writers! These people would expect to be treated like real authors! Like, with dignity and stuff! The klaxon sounded deep in the bowels of Larry’s Bat Cave. To the surprise of no one, Publish America withdrew their offer. Shed no tears though. There’ll be no tag days for Travis Tea. Lulu has ridden to the rescue. Buy this book. It is wickedly funny. It fit my specialty like a glove; perhaps because it resonated with this audience, much as a great song such as “Oh Atlanta."< Less
"Atlanta Nights" This is a book that sure will resonate with an audience...and all writers with a certain Maryland publisher will sit and read their own books again after reading this one. A great book!
