New Novel by Contributing Editor Chuck Augello Available November 24 

A Better Heart, the new novel by Cease, Cows Contributing Editor Chuck Augello will be released on November 24th. Publishers Weekly calls it “madcap and accomplished …Augello has crafted a sweet, funny character study. This comic novel boasts big surprises, heartfelt characters, and a passion for animal rights.”  

Ingrid Newkirk, bestselling author of AnimalKind and founder of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) writes, “Lively, engrossing, fast-paced, and spot-on when it comes to nailing what’s wrong with animal abuse but in a realistic, not preachy way. A great read, a great beach novel.” 


For aspiring indie filmmaker Kevin Stacey, it’s another day on the set of his first film, but when his estranged father, a failed Hollywood actor, arrives unexpectedly with a bundle of cash, a gun, and a stolen capuchin monkey, he’s propelled toward the journey that will change his life.
