Lily Mae Press Releases Anniversary Edition of Burbank's Non-Fiction Novel

Apple Valley, CA, August 17, 2021 – With the launch of Dark Myth Publications' newest imprint focused solely on nonfiction stories under the name Lily Mae Press comes the anniversary edition of S. Sadie Burbank's Red Hills, Green Vines, and Dried Monkey Meat for Dinner.

Ms. Burbank never expected to have anything other than a normal life as a Southern California housewife and mother when she got married and left her family home at the age of 18 in 1959. But the 60's changed all that, and early 1971 found her on a plane headed for what would become the most daring journey of her life. Unbelievable as it seemed, she was headed halfway around the world to a country that she'd had to look up in the World Atlas in order to learn exactly where it was. She was going there to join her lover, Steve. She eagerly looked forward to being greeted by Steve and to making a life with him at the camp he had built for them in the bush of the far northern region of the country, just 3 miles south of the Sierra Leone border. She had no idea that less than six months later, she would be desperately escaping from that camp and speeding back to Robertsfield; literally running for her life.

"I had to keep reminding myself that this was a work of nonfiction. The tales are so fantastical and incredible that it keeps you turning pages well into the night," said Stephanie J. Bardy, Editor in Chief of Dark Myth Publications.

Red Hills, Green Vines, and Dried Monkey Meat for Dinner. 448 pages. ISBN: 978-1-7372-9473-3 $18.95 plus shipping and handling and is available exclusively online at
