Tribulation House -- LIVIN' LARGE!

My third comedy-thriller, Tribulation House, is now available in two formats for your convenience: The original trade paperback, and now large print hardcover. I just got my copy of the latter in the mail today. (And, no, I'm not sure what that new cover design is supposed to represent. It doesn't really say "crime fiction" or "comedy-thriller." It just kind of says "Hmm.")

About the book (as if you didn't know):


Mark Hogan has it all. The job. The family. A position on the board at church. All he's missing is a boat. Not just any boat - a 2008 Bayliner 192. When Reverend Daniel Glory announces that the Rapture is taking place on October 17 at 5:51 a.m., Hogan realizes his boat-buying days are numbered. So he does what any man in his situation would do - he borrows a lot of money from the mob. But then Jesus fails to come back on schedule ...
