A Brace of Comedies

By Jeff Salter

And when I say a ‘brace’, I hope most readers understand that term.  The two I want to mention today — during ‘free week’ at 4F1H — are “Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold” (my newly-released screwball comedy) and “Rescued By That New Guy in Town” (my second novel published — a romantic comedy).

Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold
a screwball comedy from Dingbat Publishing
$1.95 in Kindle format on Amazon (also available in paperback)

A stubborn boyfriend with the sniffles is the last thing Amanda needs in her apartment during THIS work crisis, but how can she get clueless Jason to leave without just ending their relationship?

Fortunately, her divorced girlfriend hurriedly develops the devious scare-cure. Amanda throws everything at Jason that Christine can dream up and that apartment becomes the least hospitable place a man could possibly imagine. Extensive potpourri and a glued-down toilet seat is just the beginning.

But how serious are the privacy risks as Christine blogs about her scare-cure? Can this crazy scheme really get Jason out of Amanda’s hair at home before she loses her mind at work?

Will Amanda’s relationship even survive the kooky cure of Jason’s man-cold?

Rescued By That New Guy in Town
a romantic comedy from Astraea Press
$2.99 in digital format on both Amazon and B&N
Also available in paperback

When Kris awakens in a costume, behind wooden bars inside a pitch black community center, her only available rescuer is the hung over new guy in town (who’s dressed as a pirate).  Problem is:  she’s sworn off men, especially buccaneers.

            Badly burned four years ago by a player who ruined her financially, Kris Prima’s heart is locked down as tightly as her lifestyle is confined by those massive debts.  When first assisted by recent newcomer Ryan Hazzard, Kris is resentful, slightly afraid, and determined never again to trust men.  But when court-ordered community service brings them together once more, she begins to appreciate Ryan’s charm, good looks, and capable manner.

With all the rumors and assumptions which followed Ryan from a large metropolitan area, how can small town Kris even begin to trust him?  And why won’t he explain any of those situations?  Through her efforts to learn Ryan’s mysterious past, they share further experiences:  many comedic, one quite dangerous, and others very tender.  Despite several misunderstandings, Kris’s bottled up feelings slowly reawaken and she finally learns enough about Ryan to know she wants him in her life somehow. But can Kris regain her ability to trust a man and allow her heart to be freed from its jail?

So treat yourself to some laughter for Valentine’s Day — for less than $5 you can own both titles in digital format.
