In an effort to spread the word about OakTara’s authors, I’d like to introduce you to Jonathan Wakefield, Christian writer. His new book is entitled Fatal Reality. This story will make you think about reality shows in a whole new way!
FATAL REALITY: In this race only the winner will be allowed to live. When media celebrity Kyle Borders wins a spot on Extreme Mortality, the biggest reality show ever, he’s determined to use the opportunity to live out his faith before the worldwide audience. Daniel Vats, the show’s creator, has never killed anyone, but he can hardly wait to start. Kidnapping the contestants, he thrusts them into a fight for survival of the fittest, forcing them to run a perilous race to the death-televised on live feed before the world-on a remote South Pacific Island. Who will live? Who will die? And why is Daniel so vehement about proving Kyle a phony? The shocking revelations will stun the watching audience.
