First Date, Book Two, the continuation of Drunk Log: It was a dark and snowy night, and Jack and Aria should have been dead. Instead, they find themselves shivering on a riverbank, having survived a fall from the bridge into the currents and debris of the Ohio River. Lucky enough to slam into an anchored barge, they emerge from the water stunned, bruised and still somewhat drunk. Now they must work their way through the muck of the riverside to solid ground. Fully intent on ending it all just minutes before, Jack finds himself clinging to Aria for dear life—a life he feels just might be worth living after all.

Follow Jack and Aria through the next eight hours of their story—hours harrowing, ludicrous and poignant—as they grapple with law enforcement, EMTs, firemen, and the medical system. Confronted by an over-zealous sheriff's deputy, the formidable Nurse Rita, and a drunken priest with anger management issues, they are forced to navigate the immediate aftermath of their bifurcated bar crawl through a blizzard.

First Date is a story of individuals haunted by suicide, remorse and unanswered questions: questions whose answers are not to be found in the bottom of a bottle. Secrets are revealed and souls are bared, but answers are still elusive. For now, they only have each other, a notebook and a teddy bear.

About the Author

Mark E. Scott is a banker living in downtown Cincinnati. In various work iterations he has, in no particular order, served in the U.S. Navy, flipped steaks at a chain restaurant, waited tables, repossessed cars, and delivered boat propellers to boat shops. For reasons not always clear, along the way Mark tried his hand at full-contact Kung Fu fighting, a sport at which he was mediocre at best. More productively, he also managed to obtain undergrad and graduate degrees in secondary education and business, respectively, the latter being the most useful of the two.
