Fail to the Chief

by V.R. Craft

Cover: Fail to the Chief

After years of emceeing insipid singing competitions, TV personality Bryan Seafoam can’t wait to host “American President,” the world’s first reality show to elect a country’s Chief Executive. It’s the chance he’s waited a lifetime for—an opportunity to be a real journalist, unearthing skeletons and playing hardball with the top ten candidates.

But it doesn’t take long for the contestants to start digging up dirt of their own and throwing it back at him—literally, in the case of billionaire candidate Ronald Chump when he’s challenged to dig his own moat along the Mexican border. To make matters worse, Bryan’s producer pressures him to be nicer to the candidates, and his former crush, now an experienced political correspondent, shows up—and shows him up at every turn.

When a cheating scandal rocks the show, Bryan suspects it’s just the tip of a very underhanded iceberg. Will exposing the plot to wreck the most hysterical—er, historic—election of all time cost him everything? Or lead to an even bigger reward he never anticipated.

About the Author

V.R. Craft always heard you should write about what you know, so she decided to write a book called Stupid Humans, drawing on her previous experience working in retail and her subsequent desire to get away from planet Earth. She has also worked in marketing, advertising, and public relations, where she found even more material for Stupid Humans. Now self-employed, she enjoys the contact sport of shopping at clearance sales, slamming on the brakes for yard sale signs, and wasting time on social media, where she finds inspiration for a sequel to Stupid Humans every day. She continues to write science fiction stories, some of which appear on her blog, Stellar Sarcasm.
