Free: The Dumb Class: Boomer Junior High

Free: The Dumb Class: Boomer Junior High

If Grease was a rather lighthearted view of the local hoody kids in the nineteen fifties-sixties era, The Dumb Class is a dark-humored, irreverent look at those bygone days. It is funny, poignant and a page-turner from start to finish. The Dumb Class tells about the desires, fears and joys of baby boomer teenagers finding their way along as they deal with the world of parents, siblings, neighbors, teachers, businessmen, doctors, and, of course, the police.

They create their own milieu which is somewhat impervious to the society around them as they experiment, and in fact gain some expertise, with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll years before the hit recording by Ian Dury popularized the phrase. Hoods, elites, nerds, weirdos and freaks make up the characters in this sardonic junior high school baby boomer tale set in 1960. We were just a bunch of greasers trying to have a good time and, well, sometimes, we did. An entertaining and fun read that will be much enjoyed by the boomer set and other kids, too. Free on Kindle.

Tight Board, No Drifter

Tight Board, No Drifter
Here is an introspective and humorous look back at one man’s nearly three decades in radio broadcasting. It’s a love letter to the career that got away, along with a frank assessment of the people who made it work when it was good and made it worse when it wasn’t. It’s at once funny and wistful, brutally honest and self-deprecating. The mechanics of the industry have changed, but the strengths and weaknesses of the people involved resonate just as profoundly today as then. This is a book for anyone who has ever listened to a radio personality or who has been/wanted to be one himself/herself. Hopefully, for the reader, it will be a bright light focused on the human condition. The author has fulfilled a promise not to whine about the way things used to be. $2.99 on Kindle.

The Road To Key West

The Road To Key West

In August of 1971, Kansas Stamps and Will Bell set out to become nothing more than commercial divers in the Florida Keys, but adventure, or misadventure, seems to dog them at every turn.

So pour yourself a margarita and slide into the ‘70s for a while, as you follow Kansas and Will through this cocktail of madcap adventures – on The Road To Key West! $0.99 on Kindle.

That Guy (Humor)

That Guy (Humor)

“That Guy” is a life changing read. My 3rd cousin from Jersey didn’t read it, and he is still doing heroin. Another guy I went to high school with didn’t read it either, and I just heard that his wife left him. My nan and pap didn’t read it either. Now they are both dead. This book will change your life. Just ask the guy who lives down the street from me who just got another D.U.I. He didn’t read this book either.

There have been many great memoirs written by people who struggle with depression, anxiety, addiction, mental illness, Autism, divorce, crappy childhoods, parenting, divorce, hiking mountains, traveling, surviving crashes, being molested, attempting suicide, cancer, and even having lots of cats. I think there is even a memoir written by a guy who was born with no arms or legs, and for the life of me I still can’t figure out how he wrote it.

“That Guy” is just like all those books, only better. It is so powerful that some critics are calling it the next Bible. This is the first ever memoir written about the day to day struggle with being a real as*hole. It was written to inspire the millions and millions of other as*holes in the world who are going through the same things I did. I struggled with being called an as*hole for as long as he could remember, and I didn’t find true happiness until I accepted the person who was staring back at me in the mirror. Then I went out and found people even fatter and uglier than that person and made fun of them until I felt better about myself. Now I probably don’t even need to take my antidepressants anymore, or read that Tony Robbins self-help book my mom bought me for Christmas last year. This is my remarkable true story. $0.99 on Kindle.

Free: Teaching Frankenstein – A Cautionary Tale

Free: Teaching Frankenstein – A Cautionary Tale
Every student has a story…

But you won’t find it here.

Dark, profane, and absurd, this comedy follows the journey of a young teacher on a misguided adventure to resurrect dead dreams. After being let go from his first school, the nameless narrator finds himself at a tough urban high school ready to quit. He decides that the only way to rekindle his passion for teaching is through his favorite novel. It’s a decision that leads him on an unsuspecting journey where he discovers that teaching a book about monsters means dealing with his own first.

The story exposes the importance of friendship and the truth behind what it means to be a teacher. Based on real events, the novel parallels Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic, Frankenstein, and shows that 200 years later, humanity still struggles to identify the real monsters.

It’s a must-read for aspiring educators, teachers, and those struggling with what it means to be a modern-day professional. Free on Kindle.

Free: Return to Casa Grande

Free: Return to Casa Grande
A washed-up 80s soap star is thrust back into the spotlight after an accidental appearance on a hit reality show.

Blaze Hazelwood is a former “household name” actor searching for relevance in an entertainment environment that is remarkably different from what it was in his heyday.

Blaze was the breakout star of Casa Grande, a 1980s primetime soap beloved by millions. Twenty-five years after the show’s finale, the rest of the cast is struggling to get by but Blaze manages to stay busy doing voiceover work as well as participating in marketing focus groups taking on different personas to continually “build his chops.” Blaze loathes reality TV; for he truly believes that it represents everything wrong with the entertainment industry – and quite possibly the world – today.

Harvard educated Allison Hart, meanwhile, has a hit on her hands with Bling it on Featuring T-Bang – a “celebreality” show crafted around Hollywood “bad-boy” Thaddeus Stevens. The show’s popularity doubled the sales of a sponsor’s product and she has been approached to repeat its success for a product line geared towards women in an age group who still romance over Blaze Hazelwood and Casa Grande.

When Blaze unknowingly appears on an episode of Bling it On, the US goes with Blaze Fever – an affliction that many suffered in the 80s. This puts Blaze, Allison, and the former cast of Casa Grande on a collision course filled with hilarity, over the top revelations, and twists and turns that can only be true in a story featuring aging soap opera stars. Free on Kindle.
