Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"For reasons beyond it being my first attempt at fiction, A Confidence Carol is an extremely personal work for me, and several of the scenes are almost identical to some of my own life experiences (thankfully that doesn't apply to any of the ones with spirits).

The idea for the story came to me as I was going to sleep one night in October of 2012, and I remember rolling over in bed to write the concept down, as I had done with countless other ideas. At the time, I simply wondered "what would happen if I wrote a book about dating advice in the framework of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol?" The classic is one of my all-time favorites (especially The Muppets version), and I thought it would be an absolute blast to write a parody-work or literary remix based around it.

And it was. But as I started to write A Dating Carol, as it was originally known, I started to realize two things: A) I didn't have quite enough dating experience at the time to posit myself as some sort of expert and to write a whole book about it and B) there was a lot more to self-improvement that I wanted Ethan to learn in the story than how to talk to women in a bar.

In short, the story is a summation of everything I have learned in my own personal development so far in my twenties. With the help of his late best friend's ghost and the three other spirits that visit Ethan, A Confidence Carol touches on everything from body language, dealing with rejection, a healthier dating mentality, to pursuing your passion, with plenty of pop culture and subtle literary references thrown in (Prufrock, anyone?). I am very pleased with the way the story turned out, and all I hope is that the reader can find it relateable, poignant, and inspiring."
