Sage Sweetwater pens LORAINE LEATHERBOW: THE HOUSE OF SPLEEN, another lesbian pulp fiction novel, brainchild of Sage Sweetwater Creative Properties, flagship of Stone Creek Woman
Spiritual magic of voodoo born out of Africa's Slave Coast ...
LORAINE LEATHERBOW: THE HOUSE OF SPLEEN has been written with a strong leaning toward the fate of the modern-day coyote, running the gamut of interracial partnerships, past and present, to the cultivation of the yam and the spiritual ties that bind cultures through shamanism and voodoo.
The many elements and ideas in this novel, like all of my novels are the things that are important to me, where my beliefs lie in the words, coming from the beautiful grains of pink-tinted sand dug from deep places from within. What a lap full of proverb cloth this novel will make; "Take the bitter with the sweet...and call it good." (Sage Sweetwater)
LORAINE LEATHERBOW: THE HOUSE OF SPLEEN is a feminist/lesbian novel bent on the spiritual magic of voodoo. The yam is one-fourth of the novel's taproot... planted, harvested, and prepared with old-world simplicity.
Some say she's a medicine woman and some say she's a zombie priestess born out of Africa's Slave Coast. The truth is she's somewhere in between the bring-down-the-house soul sing and the buckskin skirt oar traveler. Loraine Leatherbow is a middle-aged lesbian woman mixed of shackle and scalp heritage. Her African-Negro mother's people were slaves given asylum by her father's Native American people. She's tall, light-dark, and handsome. Her skin is a bronzed cocoa with a copper cast primer undercoat, told that she does not fit the stereotypical rotund shape or blackness of a voodoo priestess.
Loraine uses a pig spleen to cleanse spirit, field, and stable, removing evil infestations, curing sick animals and hushing womens' scrambled minds.
She is the coyote whisperer who communicates with the coyotes telepathically when they are missing from the village, freeing them from traps and cross-hairs with her voodoo.
Originally from New Orleans, she meets young Jolie at Mardi Gras, seduces her with powder from the dried flesh of the hummingbird, then follows young Jolie who is a proud lesbian yam farmer who lives in Arizona.
