Editor's Note: It's like the show 30-Something set to the soundtrack from Say Anything.
This is a really funny book with a lot of heart!
Book Description: As the last of his friends to find a customer for his surname, hungover from one singles-bar karaoke of "Heat of the Moment" too many, Finn McCallister senses his personal life is circling the drain. In an attempt to outrun his insecurities, Finn trains for a marathon and literally collides with doe-eyed veterinarian Kim.
Those who enjoyed High Fidelity, About a Boy, and A Prayer for Owen Meany will enjoy THE ACCIDENTAL BACHELOR.
Author's Inspiration: I felt there was a huge void in American literature for dry, male humor. And, no one seems to tell the stories of the extraordinary, and humorous, things that happen to ordinary males while they are trying to find purpose in their lives. Also, I'm a huge fan of a well-placed soundtrack song in a movie, something perfected by Cameron Crowe. I crafted this into the book with 80s music and nostalgia from my formative years.
This book is free 6/19-6/20.
The Accidental Bachelor was born from a sophomoric Las Vegas story idea and grew in depth as Tim's personal relationships and faith grew. He lives in Encinitas, just north of San Diego, has an incredible wife, four kids he worships, and is a strong Christian.
