I am hosting a book launch for my first novel, The Road Ahead, and I wanted to invite you and all the readers of Quick Brown Fox:
Wednesday, September 21st
6 – 8 p.m.
Ben McNally Books, 366 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario (Map here)
The Road Ahead is the humorous story of an incompetent and inappropriate politician who stumbles from one political scandal to another. Rick Tompkins, a suburban Toronto insurance broker, never considered a career in politics until a good friend, who happens to be the leader of the Conservative party, asks him to run for office.
He accepts the offer, with the understanding that he probably won’t win, but can use the opportunity to gain some visibility for himself and his business. Jerry Switzer, a veteran party worker, is sent in to guide Rick through a campaign in a riding that hasn't elected a Conservative in years.
Rick fumbles his way through the election campaign and manages a surprise win but at the expense of saddling his party with an impossible commitment. Worse, Rick is anything but politically correct. He offends everyone in his path. Still, Rick has one saving asset: a political party machine that is able to spin scandals to its advantage.
I will be there to read and to sign books. You can RSVP at: firstname.lastname@example.org
