Dead Next Tuesday

Ed Porteneau is a nerdy 28-year-old who lives an uninspiring life in a rundown apartment in a suburb of Seattle. He works as a Produce Manager in a general store, for a boss he despises. He has a best friend who beats him hands-down in the nerdiness stakes, and his social life consists of playing on his Xbox, visits to comic book stores, and daily phone calls from his overbearing mother.
Not so different to many other nerds his age.

There is one major difference though, and this is that Ed knows when he is going to die.

He is given seven days’ notice and he decides to make the best of the time he has left. He needs a plan and creates for himself a ‘bucket list’ – things the must do before he kicks the bucket -consisting of seven highly ambitious tasks. One for each day he has left.

During the following few days, as he attempts to complete his list, Ed finds himself in one highly unusual situation after another. Some thrilling, some scary, some funny, and some downright embarrassing.

Is there any way Ed can complete his list on time?

Whatever the outcome, he is guaranteed the week of his life.

Dead Next Tuesday is a funny, warm story which will appeal to nerds and non-nerds alike.
Readers can associate with Ed’s occasional lack of confidence and frustrations at his quiet, uneventful life.
He is a thoroughly likeable character and anyone reading the book will be willing him on to complete his bucket list and make a success of his last week on Earth.
