              Would you know if a small god paid you a visit? Would you trust in the least of miracles or believe in the messages that appear out of the blue on your computer screen? What would it take to make you believe? As the story unfolds, there is an ancient godling adrift in the Univers...e and he is desperate for believers.This tiny god, who comes to be known as Bob, is small, powerless and unseen. Drifting through the ages he is brought to consciousness following a tragedy but, he must gain followers, as without true believers, there is no capacity for miracles. Worse, without them, he will cease to exist. So, Bob goes to work, invisible and inexperienced, silently watching and hoping for people to love him. He learns all about vending machines and then computers and quickly grasps the human concept of spending money. As the days pass into mundane routine, his energy increases as his unknowing colleagues mutter... Oh God. But modern life takes its toll, even on a higher deity. Bob needs a sacrifice......not any old sacrifice, no blood or guts or murder and mayhem, just a chocolate bar given freely. Ray Charles and Mary Callahan had no idea that their lives were going to be changed forever when a very weak but desperate god introduces himself. Ray's anger over his wrecked car tyre draws Bob like a beacon to him. Mary's emotional turmoil teaches Bob all about love and betrayal. He watches over her but not even a god is safe from making serious mistakes. Soon, a psychiatrist, the Police and even the Pope are brought into the confusion.But then, Bob finds that he needs a far bigger audience if he is going to save the world from impending doom. Can he do it? The first in a new humorous fiction series and written in a tongue-in-cheek style by author Mark Long, this story is both thought-provoking and funny. It's guaranteed to make you smile. Available as a paperback or on Kindle.
