Tales of a Scorched Coffee Pot by Jason McGathey

Here’s the next installment of this series, offering you a visual/audio experience of my forthcoming novel. I’m super stoked about the project, which is finally reaching fruition after a couple solid years’ worth of work! That’s yours truly narrating this clip above. Photos are about 50/50 between ones I’ve shot and ones taken by others, though all applicable to the subject at hand.

Here is the official blurb for my book:

Life in a locally owned, health-conscious grocery store chain…it might be organic, but it sure isn’t natural!

Any lowly peon who has ever worked retail or for that matter an office job will find much to laugh about and relate to in this highly comical epic, of a company whose chaos hits all too close to home. From blowhard bosses who insist “somebody” needs to do something whenever any problems arise, to the crybaby technophobes running riot all over the enterprise, to the widely held misperception that Good With Computers is an actual department, it’s all right here, in this fresh, modern workplace tale so realistic you might swear that you have lived it. But of course, nothing this preposterous could happen for real, right?

“Tales of a Scorched Coffee Pot” is now available for pre-order on Amazon, with an official launch date of March 20, 2024. If you like what you’ve read/seen/heard thus far, get your copy today! Also for those of you brave enough to review my epic work here, I could be persuaded to send you an advance copy — if so just leave me your email address in a comment, or else feel free to send me a message at jasonmcgatheywriter@gmail.com and I will get one out to you.
