The Awakening of Jim Bishop: This Changes Everything
Expected Publication Date: January 20th, 2022
Genre: Contemporary Fiction
Publisher: Black Rose Writing
Jim Bishop is alone. His wife died. He lost his job. His brother is on the west coast. But something else, something different, something new is waiting for him.
In uptown Charlotte, the lives of five strangers are bound together as tightly as the twisted metal frame of the bicycle at the center of a horrible hit-and-run accident.
A homeless woman watches as a minister tries to comfort the young computer coder who believes he killed the cyclist, while an exhausted nurse and a power-driven CEO slip off into the night.
As Jim begins to rebuild his life, a strange vagrant helps guide him to the five people involved in the accident, revealing the dangerous secrets and vulnerabilities threatening to destroy each one. Someone has a gun. Someone has been physically abused. A relationship desperately needs mending. Someone will die.
Jim finds himself in situations with his new friends he never expected, giving him opportunities he never saw coming, providing new meaning in ways he never could have imagined.
Filled with tragedy and promise, The Awakening of Jim Bishop is a powerful and moving story of loss, hope and healing sure to provoke thought long after the last page is turned.
TRIGGER WARNINGS: SUICIDE, CHILD ABUSE, RACISM, DARK THEMES
About the Author
“Tell stories.” It’s one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received. Stories inspire people to grow and expand their horizons. They entertain. They challenge. They comfort. Simply put, they make life much better.
I’ve been telling stories all my life. When I worked with adolescents, I told stories that helped kids understand, learn, and develop. Later, as a corporate training manager for Fortune 500 companies, I used stories to demonstrate examples, to encourage better business practices, and to stimulate learning. As an online college professor, I found stories to be instrumental in challenging people to think and comprehend.
Today I continue to tell stories. You’ll find them in my nonfiction curriculum books and all of my novels. I’ve been fortunate to publish five award winners, so far, through independent publishing Houses.

- The 3rd Option (Brandylane Publishing)
