Price: $4.99
Columnist Donny Love, after twenty years of chasing dreams, returns to his gritty hometown of Hamilton, Ontario with his wife Cathy, whose patience is wearing thin. They're expecting their first child and the pressure's on. He takes a job writing an entertainment column for the Hamilton Gazette, the steel town's daily paper. In the midst of a mid-life crisis, he writes a series of columns inventing a heroic and fantastic past for a long-lost friend named Steven McCartney. The columns take on a life of their own, as the public goes crazy for this mythical figure. Soon, Donny's exaggerated claims begin to haunt him in unexpected and humorous ways, as the column spreads like wildfire across North America. Even Hollywood latches onto the story, with ridiculous results.

    You know, most of the time these self-published novels are a pile of crap, but I have to say that I LOVE this guy's book! Its satire carves a nice big piece out of LaLa Land's butt! And for anyone who ever felt a narcissistic pang of regret for the fame he never achieved (but clearly deserved!)---well, let's just say that this book takes the mickey out of that little ego-trip. The characters in this novel are often over-the-top but reminded me powerfully of people I know. I can't believe that those nimrods down in Hollywood haven't jumped all over this baby! -- Bob Chamberlain, Editor-In-Chief, The Hamilton Gazette
