"Hell til' Heaven: The Man-Angel"
Meet Joseph McCarley. In most social circles (none of which he belongs
to) he is known as a drunk, a womanizer and to put it nicely, an
asshole. But there are some, mostly his patients that know him to be
something else. A therapeutic genius.
Joe can save you but not because he wants to. He'll listen to your
grievances, put on a caring face and spout advice faster then Buddha
on a bender, but at the end of the day, the one thing he can't save is
himself. That is, until a car does it for him.
In an unexpected, selfless act, Joe saves the life of another at the
cost of his own, severing his soul from his body. Now a ghost,
stranded on the streets of Boston, with only his guardian angel, Lara,
by his side, Joe seeks to return to the world of the living but only
if he can fight off his inner demons and stay one step ahead of the
literal ones as well, seeking to damn his soul forever.
However, all is not as it seems, for even now, a mysterious dark fire
flickers within Joe, waiting, watching and preparing him for a fate
heaven can't predict and hell can't prepare for . . .

Q: What will readers like about your book?
To put it simply, it is a character driven tale with much growth
and readers will love the exciting and thrilling pacing the book has
to offer. It is very humanistic and mirrors my own life. The main
character is especially relatable as he suffers from many things the
average man or woman suffers from daily (clinical anxiety, alcohol
addiction, sex addiction, loneliness, loss of love, loss of family).
You will really root for him and marvel at the changes to his
character by the end of the story, as well as the twists and action
Q: Why did you self publish?
I had good success compared to others in my search for an agent. I
received back five letters saying they would be very interested in
representing me. However, I am a do it yourselfer and really love the
empowering feeling of going renegade and being a self made man. At the
end of the day, it's the freedom of total creative control that lured
me to self publication.
Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
My favorite authors include Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, Arthur
Conan Doyle, and Geoff Johns. As for my novel, you may purchase it
through amazon at the link provided below. Cheers everyone! If you
ever get yourself to New Hampshire, the beer is on me :)
