9780800759094: Flabbergasted: A Novel

Stockbroker Jay Jarvis just moved east. His dating life's gone south. What else is a guy to do but go fishing? "This is one book you don't want to miss!"--Crossings Book Club "Blackston's light and breezy style makes Flabbergasted an ideal reading choice for a lazy summer night."--Bookpage "Blackston's first novel is refreshingly honest . . . Good writing and an ample dose of humor make this as charming as Bridget Jones' Diary from the male point of view. Highly recommended."--Library Journal "A fun, lighthearted and thoroughly enjoyable 'relational gumbo' of a novel . . . quirky and very satisfying, this novel is an excellent debut."--CCM Magazine "[A] superb first novel."--Christian Retailing "Blackston takes an amusing look at the Christian singles scene, The story proceeds at a leisurely, episodic pace, focusing on dialogue and characterization to provide the plot."--Romantic Times "This book made me laugh out loud."--Liz Curtis Higgs

From the Back Cover:

Stockbroker Jay Jarvis just moved East. His dating life's gone South. What else is a guy to do but go fishing? "Refreshingly honest . . . as charming as Bridget Jones' Diary from the male point of view. Highly recommended."--Library Journal "A fun, lighthearted, and thoroughly enjoyable 'relational gumbo' of a novel."--CCM magazine "This is one book you don't want to miss!"--Crossings Book Club "Blackston's light and breezy style makes ideal reading for a lazy summer night."--Bookpage "An amusing look at the Christian singles scene."--Romantic Times "Amazing. A novel with no illicit sex, bad words, racial slurs, or crime that is simultaneously serious, hilarious, and impossible to put down."--The Dallas Morning News Armed with the knowledge that his second grade teacher always liked his stories and poems, Ray Blackston walked away from the corporate cubicle, bought a laptop, said a prayer, and began typing the first words of Flabbergasted. He does not recommend this method for the faint of heart.

About the Author:

Ray Blackston of Greenville, South Carolina, worked as a buyer and a broker for eleven years before cashing in his modest 401k and leaving his corporate cubicle to write full time. He serves on the missions committee of Grace Church, has traveled to rural Ecuador on a summer missions program, and coaches his six-year-old nephew Action Jackson in T-ball.
