Welcome to the Bubble Battles   1 comment

Take a walk through America’s “bubble battles” with someone without a dog in the fight.

 

Hullabaloo Front CoverFor a committed democrat, it sure does suck when you lose an election.

 

You know what I mean?

 

Nearly half the country refuses to listen to the other half. We think we know what the other side means, but we never venture outside our own bubbles to actually find out.

 

Libertarian Connor infiltrates both bubbles in a Midwestern town on Election Wednesday 2016 and brings readers along for a wry non-partisan tour of the “Bubble Battles.” He even offers a solution … not that any bubble dwellers will listen.

 

This novelette is a work of fiction based upon real-life events. Any resemblance to yourself or people you know is purely coincidental.

What’s “Hullabaloo on Main Street” About?   Leave a comment

There’s no question that America is a divided nation with progressives and conservatives living in different bubbles. The 2016 Presidential election results caught the Democrats by surprise, but I think it also caught Trump voters by surprise. The mainstream media had done everything in its power to make them believe they’d be throwing away their votes, but they voted for him anyway. I’m not convinced that was a great choice, but I was and will never be a Clinton supporter.

Having voted for Gary Johnson in protest for the two main parties giving us not a dime’s worth of choice (crooks on my left, clowns on my right, here I am … still not voting for you), I discovered on Election Wednesday that I had no sense of ownership in this election. I just didn’t care.

Then I watched all the riots around the country by people more than a little upset over Trump’s election. I talked to my progressive friends and discovered they were devastated. I listened to my conservative friends and you would have thought we elected Jesus to the Oval Office. Even some Christian friends are insisting Trump is God-ordained.

Well, God used Jephthat┬áto accomplish His will, so … yeah, I still don’t think so.

Finally, I read a Politico article – When a Red State Moves to You? – and Hullabaloo on Main Street was born. It’s short … just a novelette … and it attempts to be funny, to make some political observations under the cover of satire. I tried to have sympathy for both sides, but also to show what I think are the worst parts of both positions. None of it is meant to be mean. I am not mad at anyone.

I hope you will enjoy the book … which the e-book is FREE for the next two days. There’s also an affordably priced paperback.

I should also say, this was kind of a hard book to write because it was set right after the election and so much has happened in only a handful of months … all of which Connor had to be unaware. But more than anything it was a fun challenge to write because it pokes fun at some of the basic premises that cause us to seek our respective bubbles and refuse to be dislodged from them under any circumstances. Connor infiltrates both of those bubbles because he’s a non-voting libertarian. He doesn’t have a dog in the fight … and like me since the election of Donald Trump, he feels like the country dodged one catastrophe only to embrace another … meaning neither side is right and neight is completely wrong. Give it a read. Let me know what you think. Most importantly, leave a review. This book is entered in the Kindle Storyteller contest, so reviews are very important for this one.

Thanks so much.
