Pseudopod 359: Face Change

by Jeff Hewitt.

“Face Change” is making it’s debut on Pseudopod. “The main adage of therapy is that the patient must want to change, but we all know change isn’t easy. How far would you go to make the change that you want?”

JEFF HEWITT is a police dispatcher who lives and works in the American South, and has written two self-published novels. He has been married to nursing student Megan Hewitt for four years. His website, www.jeffhewitt.net, is where listeners can find samples of his other works, and especially his second novel AT THE END OF ALL MAGIC, available on his website and Amazon.

“‘I’m going. Thank you for trying as hard as you could, all the same.’ Dr. Adler looked at John’s hand, and something flashed in his eyes.

‘Just a minute! Just a moment! Let me get something for you.’ John watched the doctor stand up and run to his office closet. After digging for a moment, he came back with a DVD in a cardboard sleeve and a slick, black case.

‘These go together. I’ve heard good things, and when I got one in the mail as a sample I knew I had to save it for someone special. I think you’re that person, John.’ Dr. Adler handed John the items. The solid-looking case weighed very little, surprising John.

‘”The Face-Changing System for Success in Life and Business,”‘ read John aloud. He cocked an eyebrow at Adler.

‘I know how it sounds. Most of these systems are a bunch of malarkey, but I really have heard good things from colleagues. It’s not for everyone, but I think you’re just the man for it.’ John tried to hand it back, but Adler refused.

‘Try it out. If you don’t like it, bring it back to me, or give it to a friend. Good luck, John.'”
