Reaching far beyond his home on stage alongside his band mates in the hardcore Christian heavyweights MyChildren MyBride, Joe Lengson has spread his literary wings and released Sleeping in Parking Lots, a novel about love, faith, struggle and the road that can easily be prepared to such hits as blue like jazz . In fact, Lengson wrote the book all over the world while on tour with his band which gives the book a wide array of documented experiences that instantly put the reader right in the story. Though initially, the book began as a hobby, Lengson felt called to dedicate his writings to anyone who struggles with love, loss or accepting God.

Sleeping in Parking Lots is an engrossing piece of literature that shares tips for living a life on the road, dealing with relationships while following such an unconventional career path and all the expected hardship that come a long with simply growing up. The novel will be available in eBook format on the Apple iBookstore, Amazon Kindle, and the Barnes & Noble Nook. It will also be available in paperback format through Lengson’s personal website web.me.com/joelengson, as well as his publishing company at www.Lulu.com.
