The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to have Happened Somewhere) - Craig Davis

After earning bachelor’s and graduate degrees at the University of Missouri, Craig Davis toiled for 20 years at newspapers, and has spent a lifetime in biblical scholarship. He's a native of Memphis, TN, the land of Elvis and pulled pork, though neither of them have helped him much. He currently lives in Jackson, TN. An amateur musician, he was once wrestled to the ground by a set of bagpipes. He is father to two adult daughters and owner of one dog who refuses to grow up.

Product description:
"The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to have Happened Somewhere)"
Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig. But along with the Big Boss’ favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mailroom! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what's happened to him, and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss.
Joe B.'s great expectations have taken an all-over twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good?

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The book offers clever writing while tackling difficult issues, and the characters will feel familiar to anyone who has held a job. Readers who appreciate spiritual themes will come away with a greater understanding of life, and perhaps a bittersweet longing.

Q: Why did you go indie?
"The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to have Happened Somewhere)" does not fit into any formula or pulp genre, so going independent was the best way to protect the content and control the marketing of the book.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
There are no other authors in the genre of humorous parable, although C.S. Lewis is similar with "Screwtape Letters".
