A hilariously demented Young Adult novel!
When your best friend is just a tiny bit psychotic, you should never actually believe him when he says “Trust me, this is gonna be awesome.”
Of course, you probably wouldn’t believe a voodoo doll could work either. Or that it could cause someone’s leg to blow clean off with a quick prick. But I’ve seen it. It can happen.
And when there’s suddenly a doll of YOU floating around out there–a doll that could be snatched by a Rottweiler and torn to shreds, or a gang of thugs ready to torch it, or any random family of cannibals–well, you know that’s just gonna be a really bad day…

“Fans of Strand’s other novels of outrageous circumstance will not be disappointed. A delightfully ludicrous read.” — School Library Journal
“A snarky and self-aware tone, casual descriptions of mayhem, and narrative tricks contribute to the lunatic atmosphere of this free-wheeling dark comedy that starts off running and doesn’t stop until all plausibility is exhausted. Sam Raimi fans should eat it up.” — Publishers Weekly

Hey, Jeff! Just bought this on Amazon for my Kindle.
Congrats on the book release. The editing in the Kindle edition is fine, but strangely it’s called Bad Day for Voodoo. Missing a letter, there. Oh well, no biggie.

It was a very funny book. I loved every scene! I liked all of the ridiculous things that Tyler did in the book, like talking to a rottweiler! There was so much suspense in the beginning and throughout the rest of the book, especially with Mr. Click’s leg getting blown of and him becoming a zombie later in the book! I did not except any of it!!
ha ha ha haaa Jolly Good Day Sir!!

Hey Jeff Strand, I read your book “A Bad Day For Voodoo” and it is hilarious but also kinda scary. I think your book is really good and I cant wait to read more because it’s one of those books that are kinda relatable characters. Keep up with your good writing skills that make me want to read more.

I just read this and I absolutely loved it!!! This hilarious dark comedy is amazing while balancing out terror with jokes. The characters were so in-depth that I felt I knew the characters my whole life. This book was great for letting me take my mind off Covid-19. I also loved THE GREATEST ZOMBIE MOVIE EVER, HOW YOU RUINED MY LIFE, STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED, and I HAVE A BAD FEELING ABOUT THIS.
Have a good day!
