The Writer’s Coffee Shop rereleases Gene Doucette’s successful first novel Immortal
On March 8, prepare to learn what it would be like to live forever with Doucette’s humorous tale about Adam, the immortal man. Doucette combines elements from science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction to create a hilarious ride through time.
Immortal is a first person confessional penned by a man who is immortal, but not invincible. In an artful blending of sci-fi, adventure, fantasy and humor, Immortal introduces us to a world with vampires, demons and other “magical” creatures, yet a world without actual magic.
Gene Doucette and his immortal character, Adam, have found a new home with The Writer’s Coffee Shop. Immortal was first published in October of 2010 and has received enthusiastic reviews that can be found on numerous websites including Goodreads.com. Reviewers cannot get enough of Doucette’s original and witty writing style.
Eric Garcia, author of Repo Men, Matchstick Men and the Anonymous Rex series states, "In creating the ageless Adam, Gene Doucette has conjured up a character as witty as he is old, and as charming as he is depraved. IMMORTAL is by turns thrilling, moving, and deeply, darkly funny."
Readers that have already become enthralled with Immortal will be happy to know that the rerelease will include a new short story titled On Gods and Succubi.
The adventures of Adam the Immortal do not end with this book. The Writer’s Coffee Shop will be publishing the second book in this series, Hellenic Immortal, in May of 2012.
In addition to ghostwriting for an immortal man, Gene Doucette has been published as a humorist with Beating Up Daddy: A Year in the Life of an Amateur Father and The Other Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook: A Parody. He is also a screenwriter and a playwright. Gene lives in Cambridge, MA with his wife and two children.

The Library is a friendly environment in which anyone can post and read original and derivative works. The Library is also used by The Writer’s Coffee Shop Publishing House to host regular fiction writing contests.
