CHRIS SANDSTROM TAKES ON THE REALITY TV INDUSTRY
Every night millions of Americans sink into their couches and disappear into the fantasy world of reality television. Tonight the nations' eyes are fixed firmly on Jacoby Simmons.
As Jacoby stares across the stage at Carly he sees the shy, sensitive girl who baked him sugar cookies and shares his love for cheesy 80s movies. Though he's only known her for a few weeks he sees the first girl to ever really capture his heart. What he fails to see, what the viewing audience already knows, is that Carly is a prostitute, as were half of the other women that he previously
dismissed from this reality dating competition.
"Reality TV and Hookers” is a satire of the reality television industry told from the narrative perspective of an unnamed producer recounting the tale of his greatest ratings success. He tests the viewing public’s appetite for sex, sleaze, and controversy by adding this major twist to the traditional Bachelor format. The story follows the arc of the program from the initial concept and casting to the dramatically televised conclusion where Jacoby, Carly, and narrator face the consequences of their decisions.

PAPERBACK & EBOOK
"This had all the addictiveness of a reality tv show without the moral hangover I get from enjoying those shows. A quick and entertaining read."
"A great read. Smart and funny, stupid and hilarious all at the same time. This was one of those books you pick up and don't find yourself putting down. A pretty good commentary of the worst (or the best) part of the life and times we live in. Got a few odd looks around town reading this one. Made we want to embrace the degenerate side of myself that I've trying oh so hard to repress. Good work Chris! Looking forward to the next tale!"
"This book is a quick, light read from an insightful and starkly hilarious author. He has a wit that verges upon Carlin-esque."
"This was a thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining read. I highly recommend reading it. Quick read, but worth picking up for sure."
"Well written and fun to read. If you pick it up and you won't be able to put it back down. Great original idea."
