Bridget Primavera is like a lot of women we know. She’s a hardworking mom doing a public-interest beat on the Atlanta local news. She cusses like a sailor when the kids aren’t around. She likes college hoops, beer, and wings. She cracks jokes but wants to make the world a better place.
She didn’t ask or want to become the embodiment of the old Irish goddess Brighid, warrior of the Tuatha Dé Danan, matron of protection and springtime. If anything, that’s just more work in a tough schedule.
The Ballad of Brighid of Atlanta follows her story as she discovers her new identity, rises to fame (or notoriety), and learns to deal with the pressures to seem like a hero when all she wants is to be a hero.
A story in three chapters, published by Creative Impulse Entertainment. Each chapter has one version with joyful, lusty profanity throughout and one which is cleaned up for kids. Ultimately, the story and action are totally appropriate for family reading, but Bridget has a really foul mouth.
Dirty Versions (electronic single issues):
All are available at my bookstore, but also at these retail sites if you have gift certificates or subscriptions or whatever:
Note to Kobo users:
Kobo puts a cap on maximum file size, and chapter two is long enough that I can’t make it fit. If you are a Kobo user and purchased Chapter One through Avid, please let me know at johnnypence at gmail, and I’ll “see what I can do.”
If you want to ask questions or yell at me about any of the projects you see here at the garbagefactory, drop a line. I’m around.
