Finally, this cheeky little book that I originally wrote 13 years ago is for sale (at least in a few hours, after it finishes uploading) on Amazon. For Kindle go to: http://www.amazon.com/Muckwhips-Guide-Capturing-Latter-day-ebook/dp/B00ADZ04U8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354051856&sr=8-1&keywords=muckwhip

Muckwhip's Guide for Capturing the Latter-day Soul will be available for Kindle, Nook, and Kobo. Nook and Kobo are still in the process of posting. This book will also be available in print (hardcopy) form, but not until after the first of the year. I hope to do an audio book version soon, but this will come out after the e-book and print versions.

I've always loved this work, but quite honestly, my publisher--13 years ago--was very skeptical. They felt the LDS audience just wasn't ready for a book where "devils" are the main characters. To say nothing of finding them funny or ironic (or moronic). However, 13 years is a loooong time, and since then such phenoms as Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games have made (we hope) such a concept far less shocking. Keep in mind, these are fictional devils. Muckwhip's world is symbolic and metaphorical. Simply put, if you take it too seriously, you'll miss the whole point!

The truth is, this was always a delightful work--a favorite as far as my writing goes and a story for which I was always very proud. Now, after a slight retooling and tweaking to make it appropos for today's audience, I'm thrilled to finally make it available to my readers.

I've first announced this event here, on my blogspot. You are invited to be among the original readers to consume and review this novel. Please let me know what you think. And if you find any typos (doubtful, because we were just sooo careful!), let me know right away so I can fix them for all future downloads. Here's the book's backliner:


In your hands is the clandestine correspondence of Muckwhip the Unmerciful, Viceroy of Vice, whose hyper-bureaucratic department in the Lower Realms is devoted exclusively to the destruction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Muckwhip's infernal "h-mails" to his impish underlings are principally directed against Target 120–16A–44M (AKA, young Stuart Hansen) through his most challenging phases as a teenager, missionary, and husband in his daily struggles to emulate our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Will Muckwhip's Target survive? Find out while catching an eye-popping glimpse into a world of unrestrained backstabbing and outrageous irony. In the grandiloquent tradition of Marlow, Milton, and Lewis, Muckwhip's Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul offers a unique perspective of the diabolical mind—providing readers with life-changing insights powerfully magnified by the enlightened backdrop of the Restored Gospel.

  1. I have been waiting for this book to be published since you started posting example chapters back on cheimerdinger.com! Bummer that I still have to wait until the new year, though. But what's another 5 - 6 weeks compared to 13 years? :)
