Eating Bull, A Medical Thriller

 

EatingBull Book Cover by Lance Buckley

Jeremy, a lonely and obese teenager, shoots into the limelight when a headstrong public health nurse persuades him to sue the food industry. Tossed into a storm of media buzz and bullying, the teen draws the attention of a serial killer who’s targeting the obese. Soon the boy, the nurse, and their loved ones take center stage in a delusional man’s drama.

In this novel of suspense, Eating Bull explores the real-life issues of bullying, fat-shaming, food addiction, and the food industry’s role in obesity.

      Thank you. I appreciate that! Technically the paperback is already for sale on Amazon, but I’m not making an official announcement until the ebook is released too. Oops, I guess I kind of just did.😉

          I have a wide professional network I’ll email upon the book’s release, but I hadn’t thought of taking it beyond that. I might just have to. Great thought. Thank you.

            Considering the timely topic, you might consider secondary school librarians/science depts/ counselors. The big school districts have a central contact person for each of those groups that can share info/recommend to individual buildings.
            They certainly should be interested and want a copy the buildings – many have assignments/discussions for students. And trainings for teachers. Good springboard for that.
            They do have guidelines for language and plot line, so you’ll have to judge if it will pass – or ask one about it. Great issues and kids love scary stuff.

              Good thoughts, thank you. I think I’m a bit limited in the fact it’s a thriller with a fair amount of profanity and short scenes of graphic violence. It’s not for the faint of heart. But thrillers are what I know, and for now, they’re what I write.

              Sight unseen ideas, but I wondered.
              Sounds like a real winer, though.Scary is good. ( at home kids are so much more used to violence and rough language than we ever were…granny would pass out by what’s heard on the streets:) )

              I hear you on that one. My 15-year-old wore me down until I finally agreed to let him watch ‘Fargo’ with me on Halloween night (the movie, not the TV show). What I thought of as shocking for him to see, he took in stride. Guess after reading The Hunger Games, things seem more tame to them, maybe?

              And for the record, you can just imagine how much he enjoyed my parental narration during the movie.😉
