"Do good. Be nice. Have fun," is the philosophy presented in Jesus Swept, the first novel from political blogger and freelance writer James Alexander Protzman. When Gary Gray discovers a mysterious silver bracelet on the shores of Myrtle Beach, the words engraved on the object transform him into Jesus overnight. Down-and-out hooligans Mark and Luke jump on the bandwagon, sweeping floors and evangelizing up the Carolina coast. The novel also follows Hook and Sinker, Liz, Frank, and Dog, with a sprinkling of other kooky characters and mischief in between. An irreverent, satirical look at southern religious sensibilities, Jesus Swept is a witty, provocative novel that espouses the importance of hope, kindness and good old fashioned fun.

He earned his Master of Arts in journalism from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 1980, and over the next 30 years built a successful marketing and research firm. Protzman currently resides in Chapel Hill with his wife, where he is a well-known progressive blogger and freelance writer. fesos Swept is his first novel.
