Brett Cornell Series

Home of the supreme UNSCRUPULOUS BASTARD himself !!

Monday, December 22, 2014


Well, this must be a Holiday Gift from the Fates themselves (as Brett himself would put it): "DON'T MESS WITH BRETT" actually has 10 reviews posted on Amazon, all of them 5-star reviews.

Have readers started to fall in love with the Unscrupulous Bastard himself?

Have they maybe even begun to understand that he's a fictional character, an anti-hero, and NOT A REAL PERSON?

(That's for the occasional reader who claims they can't stand him.)

Anyway, here's the latest review for "DON'T MESS. . ." --

Loved it!

Verified Purchase     
This review is from: Don't Mess with Brett (Brett Cornell Series Book 9) (Kindle Edition)
Outrageous, over the top, side-splitting funny. This is a book to be savored again and again. Brett is badly behaved, but it doesn't stop a reader rooting for him.

"BEACH BUM BRETT" gets another 5-Star Review !!

This review, posted on Goodreads and written by someone who calls herself Claire, could probably be applicable to any book in the series.

In this case, it was written after she'd just read "BEACH BUM BRETT."

I almost forgot how much I loved these books! Once again I read the whole thing in one evening because it’s just too much fun to put down, and you just HAVE to see how Brett will react to any situation… because it’s usually offensive and wrong and unexpected… but then at times things just work out his way! Although it amazes me that he manages to get ANY women the way he acts and talks to them. And there is plenty of action and it never gets boring at all. This isn’t the deepest of plots ever, but it is entertaining and makes for a fun, engrossing read. I actually recommend other books in the series as well, as they are just as good.    
Sounds like she's a fan !!!

That's right!

The poor, persecuted, self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard -- (that would be Brett Cornell, for those of you who haven't been formally introduced to our "hero") -- takes a couple of shots on the chin in this little extract from "BEACH BUM BRETT" wherein the local homicide detective (Captain Prentiss) has gathered his suspects together -- a la Hercule Poirot, you might say -- and is about to ascertain the precise sequence of events, as related to the murder currently being investigated.

And so, in Brett's own words:

     Then the boring part came when each one of them was asked to relate what had happened all night. The two lifeguards told the same story, just like you’d expect from a pair of losers like them, saying that everybody’d been real friendly with each other and having a good time when “that tough punk” Brett Cornell had burst into their midst and disrupted everything.


     “Me and Steve here,” said Duane, “were just standing out on the terrace with Craig, minding our own business, when that punk-bastard-know-it-all-punk-bastard turns around and slugs me for no reason.”


     “By ‘punk-bastard-know-it-all-punk-bastard’ – I take it you’re referring to me,” I broke in with. Then I leaned in towards Prentiss once again and watched him scrawl something in his little notebook, so I told him,” Make sure you get that right, man. That’s ‘punk-bastard-know-it-all-punk –“


     “I heard what he said,” the guy cut me off, suddenly losing his cool. But then, just as suddenly, he reverted to his old boring self and looked over towards Duane once again and asked him to continue. Whereupon good old Duane told him,


     “After that punk-bastard-punk or whatever-you-wanna-call-him slugged me, I went down for the count, so I don’t know what happened after that, but I’m sure Steve can tell you.”


     “I sure can,” the idiot said, picking up his cue from Idiot #1, and his eyes kind of twinkled as if he were enjoying himself, as he continued,” That punk-bastard-know-it-all-punk –“


      “Just call him Cornell!” Prentiss yelled out, starting to lose it all over again. “We all know who the punk-bastard in question happens to be.”


But rest assured, dear readers. By novel's end, Brett is exonerated of all wrongdoing -- as far as the murder itself is concerned -- and is free to go on his merry way and disrupt and ruin the lives of even more completely innocent, clueless people in the next installment of the series: "DON'T MESS WITH BRETT"

"PHASE 4" -- New Sci-Fi Novel (coming soon)

No, it's not a "Brett Book" --

However, since it was written by Yours Truly ( using the pen name David Dennis), I thought I might devote a brief amount of space here to tell you a little bit about "PHASE 4" --

For example, here's the blurb that I'm planning on including in the description on Amazon:

"Pampered, spoiled, self-centered, Greg Marlowe swaggered out of the Pleasure Dome one evening in late September only to find himself suddenly propelled into what he took to be an alternate reality.

  With his self-confidence beginning to dwindle, he became repeatedly visited by robotic-like beings who seemed determined to subject him to pain – both physical and emotional.

   Could he ever find his way back to the world he had always known, or was he destined to remain locked in a literal battle of minds against a force that no human being had ever encountered before?"
And if Greg Marlowe sounds a little bit like Brett, what can I say except that perhaps there's a little bit of Brett in all of us??  (Scary thought, I thought.)
Speaking of "SCARY" -- Here's the book cover image for "PHASE 4" (below)

Look for it in mid-July 2014 !!!
