(From the back cover)

He is the perfect presidential candidate. Conservatives love his hard-hitting Republican résumé. Liberals love his passion for peaceful diplomacy. The media can’t get enough of his larger-than-life personality. Regular folks can identify with his larger-than-life physique. And all the American people love that he’s an honest, hard-working man who tells it like it is. There’s just one problem: He is William Howard Taft . . . and he was already U.S. president a hundred years ago. So what on earth is he doing alive and well and considering a running mate in 2012?

Jason Heller’s extraordinary debut novel presents the Vonnegut-esque satire of a presidential Rip Van Winkle amid 21st-century media madness. It’s the ultimate what-if scenario for the 2012 election season!

New Year, New You…

Why not try something different? A genre that perhaps you’ve never picked up? I highly recommend Jack McDevitt, a Nebula award-winning author of several series. The series I’m hooked at the moment  are the Priscilla ‘Hutch’ Hutchins Novels. There are currently six novels in the series. I always feel late to the party, but I can’t put these novels down…If you’ve never read any sci-fi, you are missing out…Do yourself a favor and pick up the first one. ‘The Engines of God’. You won’t regret it.

Happy New Year!


A mystery set in the twenties with Dorothy Parker as the sleuth? What’s not to love? I highly reccomend these novels by J.J. Murphy..Product Murder Your Darlings
