Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has gained national attention both for the historic nature of her campaign, if elected she’d be America’s first African-American woman Gov., and for her sideline as an author of romantic suspense novels.

Under the pen name Selena Montgomery, Abrams has written 8 books including:

“She just witnessed her uncle’s murder, she’s running for her life, and now Dr. Katelyn Lyda is face-to-face with a breathtaking man who could be her salvation. Tall, sexy, his eyes full of mysterious promises, he seems to have the answer she needs.

“It’s too bad Sebastian Caine is one of the bad guys . . .”

“Independent, stunning, and smart, Kell Jameson has the life she’s always dreamed about. A partner at a tony Atlanta law firm that represents famous — if guilty — clients, she’s far from her days as a lonely orphan in rural Georgia. But one frantic phone call will bring her back to the place she’s spent years trying to escape….”

Not to be outdone, her potential competitors currently in a run-off for the Republican nomination have each revealed their own pen names and books.

Lieutenant Gov. Casey Cagle claims to have authored several novels under the pen name Jefferson Reagan. They include:

“Politics meets passion as handsome, charismatic K.C. Eagle is running the race of his career but letting little things slide. Will his bold plans to allow students to graduate high school with an associate’s degree or industry certification be tripped up by his own leather laces?

“Will a loyal staffer as beautiful as she is discreet come to his rescue?”

“An inspirational tale of faith and the power of prayer, charismatic and handsome C. K. Seagull was running the race of his career when a degenerative spinal condition made it impossible to go on.

“Could a well-tested and wholly proven outpatient surgery be the miracle he needs to run a similar but lower profile race now and the big one again in 8 years?”

In a thriller set at 35,000 ft. handsomely charismatic sky marshal C.C. “Snoopy” Beagle must thwart a plot by a group of anarcho-homosexuals to hijack the friendly skies.

“Can this good guy with a gun stop these gay guys with an agenda?”

Secretary of State Brian Kemp writes under the name Zane L’Amour and touts his own releases:

“Jake has intentions for the daughter of conservative small mercantile owner Colt Winchester. But Colt has bigger problems trying to find out who’s been using phony telegrams to steal funds from Western Union. Is it career politician Judge Kegel?

“And will Jake become man enough to drive the stage while Colt rides shotgun?

“For comic relief, guess what happens when dad-burned fool Liberius “Lib” Tard stores his TNT sticks by the outhouse and settles down for a cigar.”

“A large influx of banditos have been jumping claims and stealing jobs from the ordinary white settlers of Cherokee County. It’s up to county clerk and conservative small wholesaler Smith Wesson to form a posse and finally lasso them back to the border.

“But first he’ll have to take on establishment sheriff Cuck Cartwrong.”

“A gang of jack-booted thugs has been stealing guns. Conservative small homesteader A. R. Fifteen suspects the slick but exotic Mayor Hussein.

“Will A. R.’s plainspoken ways be able to convince the townsfolk in time? And how can his own peacemaker be modified to make more peace without having to reload?”

Kemp has also released the following titles under the pen name Guccifer 3:

  • Georgia Voter Data A-M
  • Georgia Voter Data N-Z
  • Global Election Management System Instructions and Passwords

A Libertarian candidate will also be on the November ballot and writes under the name L. Rand Hubbert.

“Out of the ashes of a Federal Reserve-induced apocalypse, a group of extraordinary individuals emerge from their secretive gulch to renew the world.

“In the desolation of humanity’s near extinction, the virtue of selfishness is man’s only hope. Luckily, they loaded their escape arc with every species of blockchain technology.”

Perennial wack-job candidate Zazzlop Von Bladderbiddle is again mounting a write-in campaign and has released two collections of rambling nonsense:
