Robert Sharpe will sign his book ,“Joy Potential,” from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fri., July 11 and Christopher Watson will sign his book, “The Handyman,” on Sat., July 12 from 1 to 3 p.m.
The signings will be at Clock Tower Books in Georgetown.
Sharpe weaves a tale of self-discovery that is relevant to current times and contains universal principles that are timeless in his new book, Joy Potential: Where You’d Least Expect It. It’s a story about a longtime unemployed middle-aged worker forced to take a temporary graveyard shift job, a job done 20 years ago, in order to pay the bills.
During the week-long assignment the character overcomes fearful expectations and discovers the Joy Potential in each moment.
Watson tells of John Wright who, a year ago, was a new husband and father, a cocky young construction contractor in Charleston working hard to build a future.
Then came the terrible accident that killed his wife and infant daughter and shredded John’s sanity.
Now John barely makes ends meet as a handyman, struggling with post-traumatic stress, drowning his guilt in bourbon every night, planning the way he’ll end his suffering, permanently. Until he meets an Old Charleston blueblood who suspects her daughter’s apparent suicide was actually murder—and the victim herself calls to John to avenge her betrayal and death.
Either John’s going mad, or he truly can speak to the dead. And he realizes the only way he’s going to find out which is to put aside his own pain, and listen to the ghostly voice that will lead him to a murderer.
