When a hotheaded DJ is caught in a viral web of vengeance, it’s unlikely he’ll find the wisdom to quiet his inner critic.

Thrilled when his newfound viral fame lands him a nationally syndicated show, he uses his connections to arrange a backstage pass to meet his new squeeze’s legendary musical idol.

 

Cue mayhem.

 

Aubrey’s heart is cruelly betrayed on centerstage, and blows up big time. Again.

 

And now he wants payback.

 

Can Aubrey eat humble pie and take a Zen lesson or three, or will he go down in a fiery fit of revenge?

 

A riotous romp, They Canceled the DJ is an outrageous standalone dark comedy caper packed with over-the-top antics, satirical commentary, and humorous twists.

THEY CANCELED THE DJ

EARLY PRAISE

"Freddy Cruz’s sophomore novel is all at once intense, witty, humorous and insightful.

His insider knowledge of radio broadcasting has given us a peak behind the curtain into that

fascinating and sometimes unpredictable world. They Canceled The DJ manages to build true-to-life characters that you really care about, and Cruz weaves a story so compelling, that you can’t help but root for our underdog hero all along the way. If you’re looking for a book you’ll have trouble putting down, this is it."

 

-KEVIN QUINN, Radio Personality

“Beneath the hilarious and unapologetic humor of They Canceled the DJ, the unmistakable charisma of Freddy Cruz subtly becomes the main character. Cruz’s distinct voice elevates the typical antihero narrative, crafting an engaging story that refuses to wallow in self-pity, choosing instead to find solace and laughter in life’s less-than-stellar moments.”
