Thrilling Suspense Satire

They Canceled The DJ

The stunning new novel from one of radio’s top mainstream personalities, Freddy Cruz

Released on October 27th in Print and ebook by East 26th Publishing

When a hotheaded DJ is caught in a viral web of vengeance, it’s unlikely he’ll find the wisdom to quiet his inner critic.

Radio jock Aubrey Cortes cares way too much about what others think.  After he humiliates himself in front of a listener-turned-love interest, he’s horrified when the explosive episode goes viral. But, after the disaster turns into a first date, he celebrates with a barrage of search-and-destroy tweets aimed at torpedoing his online critics.

Thrilled when his newfound viral fame lands him a nationally syndicated show, he uses his connections to arrange a backstage pass to meet his new squeeze’s legendary musical idol.

Cue mayhem.

Aubrey’s heart is cruelly betrayed on centerstage, and blows up big time. Again.

And now he wants payback.  Can Aubrey eat humble pie and take a Zen lesson or three, or will he go down in a fiery fit of revenge?

A riotous romp, They Canceled the DJ is an outrageous standalone dark comedy caper packed with over-the-top antics, satirical commentary, and humorous twists.
