Jock Stewart Strikes Back

by Malcolm R. Campbell

Since modern-day journalism is going to hell in a hand basket and/or nowhere fast, Jock Stewart strikes back by categorizing news events as satirical, outlandish, strange or political. Nonetheless, according to informed sources, the use of this volume as a journalism textbook has not been authorized anywhere the world is right as rain.

 

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

 

Where does Jock Stewart Strikes Back rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is very unique. I found it very entertaining so I’d have to rank it right up there with the best of all audio books I have listened to.

What other book might you compare Jock Stewart Strikes Back to and why?

I don’t know of any book I can compare it to.

What about Barry Newman’s performance did you like?

I think Mr. Newman did an excellent job. He walked you through the story with great execution. His diction was amazing and his dialects were spot on. I give him a standing ovation.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Breaking News

Any additional comments?

I hope there will be another Jock Stewart book coming out with Mr. Newman narrating. I will be quick to purchase it.

Jock Stewart Strikes Back

by Malcolm R. Campbell

Stewart, who served diligently as the protagonist in Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire, refutes charges that he was raised by alligators or hyenas. When he was a young boy, his dear old daddy said, “Jock, everyone but you and me is scum and I’m not sure about you.”

That proverb opened Jock’s eyes to the realities of the world, primarily that everything is worse than it seems: the small-town newspaper, the Star-Gazer, is allegedly run by fools and buffoons; the Junction City, Texas, government is allegedly corrupt and inept.

Since modern-day journalism is going to hell in a hand basket and/or nowhere fast, Jock Stewart strikes back by categorizing news events as satirical, outlandish, strange or political. Nonetheless, according to informed sources, the use of this volume as a journalism textbook has not been authorized anywhere the world is right as rain.

Jock Stewart Strikes Back audiobook edition is narrated by Barry Newman, professional voice artist and producer,  residing in Florida. Barry has come to the audiobook industry after years  of both writing and voicing radio and TV commercials, and has this to say about his work:  “I truly enjoy reading a well written story and because of my background I am always thinking about what the listener is hearing. Putting myself in that position I must admit that many times I stop in the middle of a paragraph or sentence asking myself ‘Would I want to hear it that way?’ – from the review above, we’re sure listeners will give him a resounding YES.

Malcolm R. Campbell Brings Back Jock Stewart

NEW Jock CVR 3D

JOCK IS BACK!

Warm up your winter chill with Jock Stewart and the Missing Sea of Fire

by Malcolm R. Campbell

NEW Expanded 2nd Edition!

Mainstream humor with a dash of mystery… A throwback to Hollywood’s film noir reporters, Jock Stewart is out of touch with the looming world of digital journalism.

While he goes out of his way to mock those in authority by pretending to kowtow to them, he admits he does his best work by “being an asshole. A mix of Don Rickles and Don Quixote, Stewart is the man for the job when the skirts are up and the chips are down…

Hard-boiled reporter Jock Stewart wakes up on the morning after the Star-Gazer office party with a hangover and an old flame in his bed and he cuddles up with the mayor’s wife in the back seat of a 1953 Desoto. Between these defining moments, he investigates the theft of the mayor’s race horse Sea of Fire and the murder of his publisher’s girl friend, Bambi Hill.

Stewart discovers the truth for his news stories via an interview style based on lies, pretense and audacious behavior…

REVIEW

Small town hi-jinks delivered with healthy doses of sarcasm and wit.  Jock Stewart is like Guy Noir freed from the confines of public radio.  A must-read for anyone who likes their sleuths hard-boiled, their women salty, and their plots with as many twists and turns as a plate of the Purple Platter Diner’s spaghetti. ~ Nancy Whitney-Reiter

The Many Faces of Chelle Cordero Video

Pussycat Tales

You never really own a cat, but they do rule the household.

Holiday Happiness

Flashy gifts can come with hefty price-tags, but it’s the memories that are priceless.

Not Alone

Sometimes forgiveness seems impossible, but then so is turning your back on a friend.

I Swear That Raccoon Just Knocked on the Door

Take one city girl and send her camping in the woods for a tale of humor and triumph.

Stormy Weather

The ominous skies and howling winds of a hurricane lead to an unexpected and warmhearted friendship.

A Mother’s Love

When her child is hurt, there isn’t anything a mother wouldn’t do to make it better.

More Than a Friend

Best friends become lovers and share a lifetime together.

The Meeting

From a random meeting in the south during WW2 to a marriage and love that lasts for an eternity.

The Vacation

An erotic respite was just what she needed, the man who delivered was what she wanted.

Review

Nice variety of short stories!  Chelle Cordero really knows her cats, or should I say the cats who own her. And The Meeting is sweet, tender, and a true love story.    ~Marta Gruenwald

‘The Serial Dater’s Shopping List’ by Morgen Bailey

‘The Serial Dater’s Shopping List’

      31 men in 31 days – what could possibly go wrong?

Isobel MacFarlane is a recently-turned-40 journalist who usually writes a technology column for a newspaper based in Northampton, England, but her somewhat-intimidating boss, William, has set her the task of meeting 31 men, via a local internet dating site, all within a month. Having an active, though fruitless, social life with her friend and ‘Health & Beauty’ colleague Donna, she knows what she wants in a man, so creates a shopping list of dos and don’ts, and starts ticking them off as she meets Mr Could Be Right Except For, Mr Not Bad, Mr Oh My Goodness and Mr Oh So Very Wrong. Follow the ups (there are a few) and downs (there are many) of the dating process and intertwined with her experiences, get to know her colleague and family, including her niece Lola who, apart from being an amazing storyteller, can eat ambidextrously whilst wearing a Princess glove puppet on her right hand, and Baby, William’s non-too-healthy African Grey parrot.

***

Excerpt:

I shake my head, attempt a smile and watch him clear the plate. Finally, he picks up the chicken bones and I expect him to eat them whole, but he just licks them clean and drops them back on the plate. He issues another belch, this time apologising as he realises it was loud enough to draw attention to himself, as if the devouring of an African family’s monthly intake wasn’t bad enough. Throughout the whole episode, there’s not been a word of proper chat between us. He’s been too busy eating and I’ve been concentrating on keeping my hotpot down.

As the last morsel of food disappears into the black hole, the waitress heads for our table, I assume to clear the platter away, but she’s holding a plate above her left shoulder. I’m relieved it’s not big enough to be another meal for two, although I wouldn’t put it past him, but more like a standard sized dinner plate. I will it to be nothing I would normally eat, but am sorely disappointed as laid before me is a double helping of, the waitress announces, “homemade Banoffee pie”. I could cry.

I smile less than half-heartedly at the waitress who looks sympathetically at me before retreating to the kitchen, I assume to gossip about Table 14. At the thought of the beautiful dessert being dismembered in such a way, I look at Tim’s eyebrows. I can’t bear to look any further down as his nose is running and it’s close to meeting the barbecue sauce on his upper lip. I’ve finally had enough and blurt out, “I’m sorry, but I’ve just remembered I’ve left my oven on.” But then I recall Duncan’s battle to lose weight and feel guilty, until Tim’s mouth gapes open revealing a mixture of toffee syrup and pastry, which threaten to spill over the edge like a coin cascade at a fair, and I can’t bear to look at him anymore.

As I get up to leave, he splutters a, “so, do you want to meet again?” and I don’t know what to say without hurting his feelings. I mumble a non-committal, “I’ll message you” and almost do a Usain-Bolt-sprint down the stairs.
