Jacob Nelson Lurie takes the reader on one of the funniest thrill rides through the past, present, and future of Davis Robertson. A young man who is supposed to be preparing for the biggest step in his life, before walking down the aisle to make a lifetime commitment is haunted by the memories of his past. He battles with his desire of a beautiful dream-come-true with all the sentiments of peace and love that flow from Heaven to the outrageous actions and adventures he spent with Hell's Angels, better known as his close friends. As the author opens up the door to a ride you will never forget, the reader becomes addicted immediately to unique characters, laugh-out-loud fun, and touching moments. Each character will remind you of someone you once knew as they come to life, with a personality we will always remember. These characters were created through brutal truth as the author paints each one with flaws in the no-perfection department, while the reader has the advantage to form an opinion, and to be able to compare them to friends they have. What crucial decision does Davis make, and does his lifestyle change, for better or worse? What happened in Vegas, and do the drunken parties end? Is Davis facing the same torment that many go through in modern day relationships? I highly recommend this novel to contemporary fiction lovers, who enjoy creativity, entertainment, and humor. Jacob Nelson Lurie penned a compelling story that's appealing to all readers, with brilliant dialog in a fast moving, witty journey. The fearless author tells-it-like-it-is, through a refreshing writing style, providing colorful insight through the antics of his close friends. Does the wild side of college life continue, along with the parties and alcohol, or do the hangovers become history? How long will Davis worry about promiscuity and unfaithfulness, before walking down the altar? Do many men also go through a living hell, while searching for their true love? How wild was the bachelor party, and who was known for pranks, and fights? The pages are covered in action, the story is impressive, and the ending is amazing. The clever author included everything it takes for this novel to be a success on the movie screen. "THE FRIDAY NIGHT CLUB, A NOVEL" contains incredible word play as in MY COUSIN VINNY, has as much irresistible fun as MEET THE FOCKERS, and is as funny as FOOLS RUSH IN.

**Welcome Author JACOB NELSON LURIE**


Genre:           Literary Fiction/ Humorous Fiction


I received an MA in Screenwriting from Chapman University of Denver in 2000. Since then, I have my second novel, scratch that, I've scrapped the second novel due to overwhelming frustration and a pathetic lack of motivation. Now, I'm working on adapting another one of my screenplays to a novel. As for food on the table, thankfully, the Arizona real estate market has afforded me the ability to continue to work towards a career in writing, because I really didn't want to work in Home Depot.

Dominique L. Watson, business owner and author of three inspirational books, penned her first urban fiction novel. Ari, Heaven, Marissa and Katora are four women, who share a special friendship as they find out how much they all have in common. Each woman goes through life's difficult struggles, which force upon them to make tough decisions that will lead to new paths in some unexpected journeys. After all secrets are revealed, does the friendship between all four ladies become stronger, or totally destroyed? What kind of trouble does Heaven get into, and how often does she get into trouble? How does Ari survive her childhood, after being raised by her mother, who battled through alcoholism, and hardship? Why did Ari attend Nursing school, and what was her real dream? Why did Katora dread visiting her mom's house, and why is Ziaha so mean to Katora? Why did Marissa feel like a mom, while still attending high school, and what major crisis did she face at age fifteen? I highly recommend this novel to all fiction lovers, who enjoy inspirational stories, dealing with friendship, family and the different roads we all take through life's journey. Each story told by the author about the lives of the four ladies will indeed tug at the reader's heart as we witness courage, strength, and determination. What lies and secrets will be revealed, and who will confess? How does Marissa's married life change? Where did Heaven meet Terrence, and who knew about her relationship with him? Does Ari convince her mom to stop drinking? Why was Mama Angie worried about Heaven, and what was Heaven afraid to tell her? Step into the lives of four unique characters, while you experience the storms, the darkness and life's lessons we learn, but never forget. "TOO MUCH UNTOLD" is as touching as WAITING TO EXHALE, with Whitney Houston, and Angela Bassett.
