The Reluctant Jesus: A Satirical Dark Comedy

by Duncan Whitehead

A wild and romping quirky comedy from the author of the bestselling and award-winning novel, The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club.

The year is 1999 and the millennium is fast approaching. Baseball fan and thirty-two-year-old confirmed bachelor and architect, Seth Miller, is content with his life, as long as the Yankees win and his mother stays away from his Greenwich Village apartment. Seth's life though is turned upside down when he is informed by his overbearing and overprotective mother that he is God's youngest son, and by default the second coming of Christ.

Initially convinced that his parents are crazy, his thoughts of their committal to a suitable care facility are superseded when he receives an unsolicited telephone call from God himself. With Armageddon fast approaching, and due to some poor editing and proofreading of the Bible, Seth must assume the role of Christ and fight God's corner in the 'Final Conflict' between good and evil. Despite his initial reluctance and attempts to shirk his new responsibilities, God is insistent, and Seth is cajoled into undertaking the role of Messiah.

With his best friend, and chief follower Bob Nancy, Seth embarks on a calamitous sequence of miracle doing and disciple gathering, all of which fail to inspire the legions of followers expected by God, but leads to a bout of food poisoning for a troop of visiting boy scouts and a suspected attempt on the life of the Mayor.

God, a somewhat nonchalant character, is far more preoccupied with the lack of IT and administrative support he is receiving in heaven, than actual events on Earth; and is already planning to move on to other planets that he and Lucifer are in the process of developing for 'future projects'.

Enter Maggie De Lynne, as Seth's second disciple and love interest, who adds her own perspective to Seth's predicament; which is only compounded when a just as unsuitable anti-Christ, suffering from IBS and with a penchant for dressing up as cartoon characters, visits his apartment.

Throw a 'gangsta' rapping Guardian Angel and Walter, the talking cat - who used to be quiet as a mouse - into the mix, and the scene is set for a hilarious tale of one man's reluctance to save the world and join the family business.

Circumcised at Seventeen: A Previously Uncut Comedy

by Brian Robert Smith

"Just think of it as a bad haircut." Hubert watched the surgeon hold up a sterile bag of circumcision tools. "A week from now you won't feel a thing."

For geeky teenager, Hubert Pubes Rawlings, his new job as a shopping center food court cleaner is one thing, but a picture with the hot cleaning crew exposing him as the only cleaner who's uncut is too much, too fast. When his obscure mother stresses over his nightly dream adventures then catches his father in a single handed affair, she insists Hubert undergo a circumcision. “It’s all about sensitivity, dear. I certainly don’t want you to do like daddy does.”

Meanwhile, because of the picture, Hubert's popularity has soared. His best friend, Will, tries to convince him that it’s a good thing. That may be fine for Will to say, but for Hubert, it's simply not the case.

With the circumcision complete, Hubert struggles with his popularity among the food court hotties. Will's constant encouragement and the cleaning crew's threatening jealousy adds to his problems—not to mention having to keep his secret of being Circumcised at Seventeen.

Diamondacious!: A Lauderdale Lady's Tale

by D.A. Belmont

Diamondacious! sparkles like a bodacious diamond. It’s the funny, sexy, gossipy, tongue-in-cheek saga of Debbie DeVore, who begins her journey as a plain brunette from the wrong side of town, and rises to wealth as an icy, blonde accounting wiz. Was it so bad she cut a few corners to get there?

This frothy beach read begins in Fort Lauderdale but sweeps to New York, Las Vegas, and the capitals of South America. It will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you jealous. You’ll recognize some of the characters from the boldface names of newspapers if you read gossip, the financial pages, and even the political news. But you have never heard these stories with the spin D. A. Belmont gives them in this tautly rendered and remarkably nuanced page-turner. It’s an atmospheric and propulsive chronicle of a time, a place, and a way of life.

Debbie’s friends are fascinating. Beautiful Arden Sloane lives a life of glamor and success but hides the saddest childhood a poor little rich girl could possibly know. Handsome, brilliant, ambitious Peter Pelligrino is both highly educated and accomplished; but his heritage holds him back from happiness with Arden. Karal, fabulous high-end hairdresser to the rich and infamous of Fort Lauderdale is the true friend who helps Debbie become a swan.

Diamondacious! is a crazy, sexy, laugh-out-loud satire. It’s in turn shocking, poignant, and uproarious—written with an eye for detail, an ear for dialogue, and a knack for comic timing. It’s full of the straight story and the other one too. At the same time, it’s never graphic, and the good guys always come out on top—financially at least. Debbie is a woman who loves life and who reaches out to help herself (and her true friends) to all the world has to offer.

The House on Persimmon Road

by Jackie Weger

Need Help? Hire a Ghost. She Cooks.Lottie Roberts is restless and lonely. She’s been sitting on her bones for decades, waiting for her ticket to heaven until… Justine Hale and her family take up residence in Lottie’s two-hundred-year-old plantation house. Lottie senses in Justine a kindred spirit—filled with heartache and in reduced circumstances—which Lottie considers mirrors her own situation exactly. Yet Justine is trying to do the right thing. Else why is she burdened with a bankrupt mother without an ounce of common sense? Or an ex mother-in-law who looks like a pickled beet with a tongue sharper than a hatchet? And where is the father of the recalcitrant eleven year-old boy and the eight-year-old afraid of her own shadow?


Justine needs help and Lottie is of a mind to provide it. But before Lottie can say squat and Justine even unlocks the front door, Tucker Highsmith shows up to steal her thunder. His dark eyes, lazy grin, and sexy Alabama drawl coupled with the dern braggart’s Mr. Fix-it talents just might be the answer to all of Justine’s problems. Or maybe not, because Lottie has her own agenda since she found her bones on a hidden staircase.
