“Imagine if the magazine Hollywood Insider was a person,” said Coffey. “Now imagine that person is a dead alcoholic. That’s Wine Ghost! She is drama. She is fashion. She insists that wine counts as a fruit. And she may be her newly dead friend’s only hope of having a life after death.”
Here’s the description from Iron Circus:
When Wine Ghost was alive, she was an alcohol-soaked train wreck. Now that she’s dead… Well, not all that much has changed. When an old friend from her living days unexpectedly dies, Wine Ghost is faced with a lot more responsibility than she bargained for. She learned the ropes to hell a long time ago but it’s his first rodeo. And, boy, howdy, it’s a wild one.
“Wine Ghost Goes to Hell is about the different stages of friendship, getting drunk and not knowing any better,” Coffey said. “It’s very much inspired by my experiences and people I’ve known, although we’re all still alive. So far as I know, at least.”
