Freudian Slip, by Erica Orloff

Continuing my theme from yesterday about how authors rock (you didn't see that theme? Well it was there) I'd like to tell you about Erica Orloff's newest release, Freudian Slip. Yes, Erica had another book released at the beginning of May -- what can I say, she's prolific.


Here's the back cover blurb for Freudian Slip:

Everyone loves shock jock Julian Shaw…except the guy who shot him.

The raunchy radio DJ expects the dark tunnel, white lights—even his late grandmother greeting him at the pearly gates. Instead, he gets a coma, a spirit guide named Gus and a pushy demon with a deal. His assignment: Katie Darby.

Katie Darby's best friend just stole her guy! Now she's losing her mind.

All she really wants to do is stay in mope mode, but it feels as if someone is watching her, whispering strange thoughts into her head, making her say and do things she would never normally consider. And it's actually making her life better!

Now Julian wants another chance to prove he's a good guy. But he just might have to sell his soul to the devil to get it….



Over the weekend, Erica held a contest on her blog, asking what we would like to hear God say when we arrived at the Pearly Gates. The winner receives a signed copy of her book. She pointed out that her four-year old son would be choosing the winner based on our avatar (picture), so our answers were really just for fun. Well, he picked me! Fortunately my high school teacher/friend is coming here at the end of the month, so she'll play courier to keep shipping costs reasonable. (Thanks Liz!)

Needless to say, I can't WAIT to read it. My friend Amy wrote a good review on her blog if you'd like a little more explanation.

Erica, I was so excited I won, even if it was for completely superficial reasons, lol.

That's a hilarious contest! I didn't realize Freudian Slip was already out! What universe am I living in? Apparently a universe where I am way behind on my blog reading.

Robin said...

Ha! Just Kindled it. I just love this thing. I really do.

Melanie Avila said...

Melanie Avila said...
