New Release: Unexpected by P.F. Citizen One (10/7/2016)

October 5, 2016-

Unexpected by P.F. Citizen One

 

Title: Unexpected-Short Stories from Around The World

Author: P.F. Citizen One

Genre: Fiction/Short Stories/World Travel/Literature

Format: Kindle 

Publisher: Bookbaby

Publication Date: October 7, 2016

Synopsis:    A series of short, true life stories, which are the product of the travels and observations of one man. The stories are a miscellaneous collection of the funny and sad, of tragedy, love and friendship. And they are all, in a way, unexpected.  
Unexpected takes you on a journey from a Brazilian working on the oil rigs of Venezuela, who gets the shock of his life, to the uplifting story of a Chinese beggar living on the streets, entertaining passers-by with his songs and surviving through the mercy and kindness of others.  
There is a story for each of us in this book. Each one is subtly different and each carries either a message of hope for lost, or of caution for the unwary.
Unexpected is just that. Just as life is and just as the course of our lives run, at times unexpectedly.

AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR P.F. CITIZEN

If you had to describe your book as a whole in three sentences (they can be long sentences) what would they be? 
Unexpected is a collection of true life short stories my travels around the world and the people I have met. The book features seven thought-provoking, humorous and engaging stories that end with the most unlikely twist.

 What was the inspiration for the selection of short stories? Why did you decide this instead of one continuous novel?  I have learned a lot about life from listening and being kind to people, as well as from stories others have shared with me. I actively listen, and often feel like I’ve heard these stories many times before, until I realize that each story is unexpected and instructive. These experiences have inspired me to write.

I wanted to write the type of stories that I would enjoy reading: true life stories. Short stories. At first, you feel like you’ve heard these stories many times before, until you read the ending. This is true life—unexpected.

Can you tell us more about one story?

In one of the stories, The Wedding Contract, a man who was forced to sign a pre-nuptial agreement simply because his wife was wealthy and he was considered poor. As time went on, fortunes changed and the man became far wealthier than his wife. His wife and friends dreaded the worst from him because of his new financial position but what he did next was shocking.

Finally where can my readers keep up with you and your writing?   You can keep up with me through my website or my Facebook page:

New Release- Uber Chronicles: Field Notes From the Front Seat by Jessie Newburn

Low_res__Uber_Chronicles__Field_Notes_from_the_Front_Seat__by_Jessie_Newburn.png

Title: Uber Chronicles: Field Notes From The Front Seat

Author: Jessie Newburn

Genre: Non-Fiction/Urban Adventures

Format: eBook

Publisher: Stellium Communications

Publication Date: July 19, 2016

Synopsis:

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive for Uber? Have you ever been curious as to what kind of people use Uber? Where they are going? What do they talk about during the ride? How do they behave, or misbehave?

This is the book to read!

Jessie Newburn’s “Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat,” the first in a series, answers those questions and more … in the form of storytelling.

Driving for Uber since early 2016, Jessie chronicles her experiences with each–and every–passenger, from the conversations with interesting people with fascinating stories, to the incredibly everyday, ho-hum-ness of people who just need a ride from one place to another.

But don’t let the ho-hum-ness of the ride fool you.

As Gabe Karpati, one of her earlier readers, says, “There is a relaxing magical quality to the way she writes these stories. A sweet quiet zen silence that is shining through every line. Jessie presents these encounters like a meditation, where the seer observes but doesn’t get entangled.”

Ten different days and nights out driving for Uber.
Fifty-six passengers.
Fifty-six stories.

So, come along for the ride. Join in. Listen in. And experience what Uber is like from the front seat of the car.

Uber Chronicles — Book Review

By Ahmed Ehimare Audu

The book Uber Chronicles: Field Notes from the Front Seat was loaned to me by a friend to whom I had spoken  about my interest in driving professionally for Uber. “Read it,” she said.

At first I was skeptical about reading it as I thought it was going to read like a highly technical driving manual on using Uber, but I was really amazed with the work done by the author of this book as she did a fantastic job of delivering a very readable and enlightening account of her experience driving for Uber.

The book is an excellent guide to newbie and experienced Uber drivers, passengers, enthusiasts or anyone looking for a good read. It highlights captivating stories from otherwise mundane journeys and with the conversational tone she uses when describing each story, each is really unique.

The book reads somewhat like a diary and is made up of ten unique chapters which introduce a series of trips she makes on a typical day driving for Uber. Each chapter has several trips and she makes a story which revolves around her passenger from each trip. The first chapter provides a background of the author and talks about her initial misgivings and concerns about professional driving after which she describes each of the rides for that particular day.

The subsequent chapters follow the same format and as it progresses the reader can easily see the increased mastery of driving with Uber and in her relationship with her passengers. At the end of each trip, she gives a key experience learnt from the trip which basically summarizes the main idea of that trip.

This book has really helped save me weeks of mistakes, poor reviews and frustration that I might have suffered had I made a dive into the world of professional driving directly. Her first-hand analysis of the experience of driving almost made me almost feel behind the wheel and apart from the tips which she drops during each journey on mastering the Uber app and driving, there are lessons on driver etiquette, dress styles suitable for the different seasons. I also learned a lot on how to read and interact with each passenger.

She is really objective in her evaluation of the Uber driving and the app and from her experience passengers and drivers would understand better how the Uber GPS works in specifying passenger location and passenger area. She provides her Uber account at the end of the book so the authenticity of the experiences is not in doubt. This book is an easy for anyone and I have since gone to get my own copy of the book from Amazon.
