James Dean and the Moonlight Madness Sale

A Novella by

Have you ever wondered what happens when a mall shuts down for the night?
We all know that toys come to life after a child goes to sleep, but what if a store mannequin were to awaken from his inanimate slumber? And what if he looks like James Dean ... is, in fact, James Dean? Lucy can't believe it. She thinks she's dreaming. But James Dean sets out to prove her dream is all too real ... and Lucy has the time of her life.


"JAMES DEAN AND THE MOONLIGHT MADNESS SALE was extraordinary and is one of the best e-books I have ever read. Lucy is a flawed heroine and a tragic figure. She's overweight, has low self-esteem and lives in a veritable fantasy world where everyone resembles a movie star. Through flashbacks, we are introduced to Steven (whose looks Lucy attributes to those of Robert Redford) who turns out to be the love of her life. I found the ending to be reminiscent of an episode of the Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits; it was bittersweet and yet hopeful. It isn't often that I'm so moved by a book, but I was moved to tears with this story. Lucy is a heroine that many will be able to relate to and one I won't soon forget. JAMES DEAN AND THE MOONLIGHT MADNESS SALE is an extremely touching story of one woman's search for love and acceptance no matter the consequence. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a sensual yet thought-provoking book that blends reality and fantasy flawlessly."

"Wow! This book packed a huge punch. It starts off with an explosive sex scene and gets even better from there. Lucy's character is very real. She has never been known as the beautiful one, but instead as the redhead who is
overweight. Lucy will come alive to readers and the ending will throw readers for a loop. Miss Dietz does a superb job in hooking her readers from the very first sentence and entertaining them until the very end."
~ Fallen Angels - 5 Angels

"Ms. Dietz shows a brilliance for humour and timing, an uncanny ability to add that touch to the lonely life Lucy lives without it slipping over into farce. She has created with Lucy a strong character that leaps off the page and takes your hand, pulling you into a crazy adventure, leaving you feeling like Pretty in Pink dancing to "Fly me to the Moon" in the arms of a young Robert Redford. Be ready to be in for more than one surprise!"
~ Mon Boudoir

"Denise Dietz has woven an enchanting and sometimes chilling tale of the magnitude that is our self-image; sometimes our friend, sometimes a monster lurking in the shadows, threatening to swallow us whole, but never without repercussion. This story is told with a clever play on words, without becoming contrite. Masterfully told, you will never look at a Midnight Madness Sale in the same way again! Spellbinding!"
~ The Road to Romance

"The reality of this story is like a dip in freezing water, but the pay-off is FANTASTIC. 'JAMES DEAN' is a wonderful, unexpected treatment of life and love that will draw me back time and again -- the first e-book I have ever read that has moved me to swear I will never delete it from my hard-drive!"
