Have I ever told you how much I love dinosaurs? I had a big bucket of them when I was a kid. I would build cities out of blocks and have triceratops and ankylosaurus smash through them, roaring wildly (actually, I was pretty quiet about it). Probably half of the stories I wrote as a kid were about dinos.
I decided to revisit my childhood obsession by pitting the prehistoric beasts against one of my more recent obsessions: drag queens. Oh, and PS they are space dinosaurs.
The book is called Drag Queen Dino Fighters. It is coming May 1st from Eraserhead Press, but is available for preorder now.

From the author of Dungeons & Drag Queens comes a fierce bizarro tale of dinosaur-riding realness.
Ivanna Deflower’s chance at drag superstardom passed her by long ago. She has resigned herself to a normal life raising her son with her ex-wife while occasionally hosting Sunday morning drag queen bingo. And she’s fine with that. She really is.
Until her life is turned upside down by the one thing that’s guaranteed to give a past-her-prime drag queen another shot at the big time: a baby triceratops that can out-dance even the youngest and most sickening divas in Los Angeles.
But the climb to the top isn’t going to be easy. Not only does she have to contend with her shade-throwing former friends, there’s a certain big game-hunting drag king with a vendetta and access to cybernetic technology. And what about all those bright lights in the sky and the shaking ground? Even if she can sashay around all of these obstacles, what is she going to do about her own family?
Drag Queen Dino Fighters is a fun and fabulous high-heeled adventure story that further proves why Wonderland Book Award winner MP Johnson is considered one of the most exciting rising stars in the bizarro fiction genre.
