New Publishing Company Focused on Funny Books
By: Uban Creek Books
"When I began putting this company together last year and signing authors, I had no idea we'd launch at a time when people so desperately need to laugh," says the company's founder. "But people constantly use humor to get through tough times, and I'm sure this time will be no different. We always do."
Uban Creek Books will launch with six books this year, all related to comedy. While the majority of works will be fiction, Uban Creek will also offer a line of nonfiction titles from gift books to books designed to help people tell jokes or learn more about the history of comedy.
Among the titles set for release are:
1. A Vote for Jesus: A Satire on Campaigning, Corruption & Political Crucifixion (April 14, 2020). A political satire ripped right from today's headlines about a poor carpenter taking on a immensely powerful senator. The perfect way to understand and laugh at the way elections really work.
2. Sayings from My Father: Twisted Wit and Wisdom from a Wise and Witty Man (May 2020). Funny quips and malapropisms that offer surprising dad-style wisdom. Perfect for Father's Day.
3. Jokerboy (Fall 2020) A veteran comic looks to sell his Borscht Belt act to an up-and-coming comic so he can quit the business and finally get his Saturday nights back. This novel from two comedy legends (including one TV star) provides a touching insight into old-world and new-world comedy.
4. Peter's Principles for Political Success (Fall 2020). Drawn from the pages of A Vote for Jesus, this satirical handbook on election tactics offers a timely, accurate, and funny guideline for the contemporary campaign manager.
Uban Creek Books maintains that it has no real criteria for its books -- just anything that makes them laugh. They expect to be open to new submissions later this year.
