Newfie, Come Home! … Now Available

A feel-good read about suicide no less, David Belisle’s latest novella hits Amazon eShelves November 1.

My latest novella, a laugh-out-loud satirical farce, recently hit eReaders, November 1.

The synopsis …

Most of the men in Gord McDougall’s family had run into a bad whack o’ hassle. His father wasn’t immune, attempting to end it all with a shot of Screech and a handful of pills and Flintstone vitamins. Fortunately he survived, seeing the error of his ways. His fatherly advice to Gord is to live large and go out big if he wants to leave a mark. Gord’s doubtful at first, but father knows best. The young man leaves the hospital believing if he wants to be somebody he must kill himself.

But Gord’s no dummy. In order to provide for his family, he meets with an agent to discuss life insurance.  He meets Donna, a mental health worker who suffers from Florence Nightingale Syndrome. She falls for him but Gord refuses to be deterred from his death quest. His prayers appear to be answered when, on a boat to the mainland, he meets Saudi terrorist kingpin Atakan Kihlall. Can Gord kill himself or is all this a waste of time?

I'm a novelist and screenwriter in search of the Great Guffaw. It's kind of like getting hit with a bucket of Gatorade. It's a good time that sticks with you.
