Camp Redemption follows Early and Ivey Willingham who live in Sequoyah, Georgia. The two own Camp Redemption, but they are quite different. Early likes to drink and smoke weed while Ivey is a modern day prophet who sees angels in her sleep. Camp Redemption is a Bible camp in the North Georgia mountains that has seen better days. The two are forced to close the camp, but soon finds themselves attracting a motley collection of people in trouble. The people find home here, but the Gilla Newman and the deacons at the Washed in the Blood and the Fire Rapture Preparation Temple want to take over the camp for themselves. No matter what happens going forward, nothing will ever be the same.

Atkins is also the author of Set List. This book takes place in 1970 as Blanchard and John come together to form the rock and roll band, Skye. The two men had limited prospects and big dreams, and set out on their quest for fame and fortune. The musicians will end up on a voyage to musical success that will take them across all fifty states and span four decades. The two each built two lives: one in public and one at home.
