Author Jeffery Viles of Columbia, MO releases his second book of fiction, "PecuLIAR Fabrications (short fictions and fake-news Christmas Letters)" in time for the holidays. It written in the quirky, imaginative style Viles applied in his first book, “The Sasquatch Murder”.
— Jeffery Viles credits “ideas that just won’t go away” as the source of inspiration for his works of fiction. It is exactly these quirky, off-beat thoughts that keep Viles’ fans coming back for more. Viles’ highly-praised debut novel, “The Sasquatch Murder (a love story)" www.sasquatchmurder.com, introduced fiction lovers to his unique brand storytelling. The novel, peppered with humor, follows the trial of an individual who is absurdly charged with murdering a Sasquatch.
In PecuLIAR Fabrications (short fictions and fake-news Christmas Letters) Viles unveils a unique series of short stories that include a deer assault on an ordinary Joe and a fake hit man prowling the Oscars. The stories are bookended by examples of annoying state-of-the-family Christmas letters that become more fabricated and hysterical as the novel unfolds. Intermittent “word pictures” cause readers to stop and ponder various concepts as the pages turn.
“Initially the concept of the book evolved from a silly, little hobby I started around the holidays one year,” said Viles. “I always enjoyed the “puffery” of the Christmas “status” letters I received and wondered, ‘what if I take it to the next level?’ I started writing my Christmas letter in which my adventures and accomplishments became more fantastical each year. Before long, I had friends, family and people I barely knew asking to be on my mailing list.”
The idea took hold of Viles and evolved into a blissfully bizarre work of humorous fiction. Quick and easy-to-read cover-to-cover or in short respites, PecuLIAR Fabrications offers a fun escape from today’s challenging world. Reviewers call the book "a brilliant flight of imagination", "absurd and hilarious", as well as, "keen and attentive...satisfying."
Sharing the book is an ideal way to start a new holiday tradition. PecuLIAR Fabrications is available at Amazon in hardcover or eBook, at bookstores everywhere and is soon to be an audible book.
