“Nothing could have prepared me for the brilliance of this book.”
“I laughed from start to finish; some of the one-liners are priceless!”
“Derick leaves all worries about controversy and blasphemy at the door and takes this comic novel where a lot of authors are afraid to go!”
“I practically fell off the chair reading it Tears were tripping me.”
“I sat down and read it cover to end in one go (food breaks necessary) as it had me hooked from the start.”
“This is one of the most humorous books I have read in a long time, every page made me smile and laugh out loud.”
“Hilarious and I laughed my head off all the way through it.”
“I read it it in half a day and laughed so much my face actually ached....”
“I read Unholy Romance! in one sitting as I couldn't put it down - the hook was fantastic.”
Unholy Romance! is a hilarious story about Jesus Christ’s second coming. His task, if he can manage to stay alive this time, is to conceive a new set of Commandments which are more relevant to the 21st century than those left behind in stone by ‘old lick-arse’ Moses.
For thirty days, Jesus must live amongst the human race as one of their own, adopting their ways, savage and all as that may be. By doing this he will learn to appreciate his subjects true motivations and so develop more appropriate Commandments. His only ammunition on earth during his brief stay is an allowance of three miracles. As instructed by his dad, God the Father, Jesus must communicate the Commandments to the people through a diary, which he will leave behind as the new Bible. It is this diary that forms the basis for Unholy Romance!
Above all else, this is a tale of an unlikely and ultimately passionate romance between Jesus Christ and Megan Milligan, a feisty, Irish phone sex operator and devoted atheist, as they struggle to come to terms with an unplanned pregnancy!
Anyone over eighteen who can laugh at life without fear of ending up in Costa del Hell!
‘I was in floods of laughter. A great read.’
‘It definitely shows a darker side to Jesus, which I would be delighted to take the credit for.’
‘I may yet take a libel action against Jesus for defamation of character. I do not have a drink problem and am not a rampant homosexual, as seems to be portrayed in the book.’
THE HOLY SPIRIT
‘I have the inside track on the book, which I will sell to the highest bidder.’
‘I wash my hands of this disturbingly controversial page turner.’
‘I’d need to see some evidence that Jesus actually wrote this book before commenting.’
‘Go on my son!’
GOD THE FATHER
‘I could have done with this great read while I was lost in the desert, when all I had for entertainment was a bunch of ‘are we there yet?’ moaners!
‘It’s a great book of two halves…and a cover!
LITERARY AGENT COMMENT:
"Other samples on the subject of Jesus' return to modern earth have passed across our desks here, but none have shown such promise. I do think this is hilarious and would like to see it in print"
