Book Description

My name is Simon Nance. Originally from Surfside, California, new freshman at Alamo College. I'm still searching for a major that'll let me catch some rays at the beach. I figure, maybe marine bio or something.

Setting: a ranch near some podunk town east of the Pecos, west of Houston, and way, way, way south of civilization.

Problem: My 'date' has a chaperone. A six-foot four dude with a shotgun the size of a small cannon, who's looking for an excuse to shoot me in the postremo.

Welcome to my world.


My First Date includes preview chapters of the urban fantasy novel by Michael Angel, Centaur of the Crime.

He currently resides in Southern California. Alas, despite keeping a keen eye out for griffins, centaurs, or pegasi, none have yet put in an appearance on Hollywood Boulevard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a quick laugh August 22, 2011
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THis one is so funny! It kind of leaves you wondering if you ever went home to meet someones family if they would be like this. Billy-bob is a great chaperon, Simon is wonderfully confused throughout the whole thing, and Jolene just rolls with the punches. A great laugh in a short period of time. Definately recommnend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your typical "fish out of water" story August 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For anyone who has ever changed schools mid-year, this story is for you.

Simon gets thrust into the "boots and horses" world of a small town in Texas...and his beachcomber look and attitude are making it hard for him to make connections with the other kids. When he finally gets a date with Jolene, he learns that there's a catch...and that leads the reader into a fun situation at the drive-in theater.

It's a quickie read, and shows off Michael Angel and JD Culter's ability to catch the reader in the first couple of paragraphs since you don't have 50pgs like a novel to do that with.

Oh, and take time to read the intro to Centaur of the're going to want to grab the whole novel when you finish that small sample. If you merged Abby and Gibbs from NCIS -- you'd get Dayna Chrissie, the LA CSI who is the odd-woman-out in a very male dominated society of the police department. Michael Angel is on his own for this novel, and he can take you on a ride between worlds like the best of the fantasy-genre authors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short but makes you sympathize with the guy November 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To write a story you need a character - in a setting - with a problem.
That's what Simon (the narrator and beach lover) tell us at the very beginning. He is a real enough guy that you can connect with him, the setting is described well enough to bring some of the Texan biker movies to your mind and the problem - well, it really is a bit of problem when you're trying to impress a girl with your love for Shakespeare and her father shackles you with a chaperon for Romeo & Juliet, isn't it?
It's short, fun but not too engaging. You wont be rolling on the ground, but you'll probably be smiling a lot.

A bit too short. It was funny, but I wanted more information. I didn't feel like reading the preview for the other book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ha! Short and Funny September 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one was good for a quick chuckle. The sad part was that you can actually imagine a world where this would happen, and not just in the heads of brothers and fathers everywhere!

1.0 out of 5 stars Jokes are as flat as the characters and the plot May 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like Angel's "I Got Some Bad Muse For You," this story represents a dubious idea stretched out . . . with some Shakespeare thrown in. The characters are super-thin and the "jokes" often fall flat. If your idea of a typical Southerner is a guy in overalls who carries a shotgun in his lap at the insistence of a father who insists that his college-age daughter take a chaperone to the movies, then this story will be right up your alley. But of course they all love Shakespeare! What a terrific joke, huh?

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing story...enjoyed the writing. December 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a funny quick read in a very conversational style. You kinda feel like you met up with the main character, maybe at the local pub, and somehow fell into his telling you about this one chick he knows. You won't be rolling on the ground laughing but it'll entertain ya.

The author does a good job at maintaining the flow of the story. The characters are not subtle by any means, total over-the-top stereotypes: we have our Jeff Spicolli surfer dude ('Aloha, Mr. Hand!') who goes home with sweet little smalltown, country-fried, girl next door and you soon meet her rootin'-est, tootin'-est, buckle-sportin', bronco-bustin' Pappy and her 'there-have-been-way-too-many-Bubba-jokes' cousin...and don't forget the gap-toothed townies always lookin' to raise a little rukus! Throw in a bit of major property damage and you could call that an eventful night. If you're looking for a quick light read, this would be a good choice.
