War Veteran and Former Army Journalist Releases Contemporary Fiction Novel, Loveless in the Nam

Vietnam veteran and ex-Communications Director for Hawaii’s governor, Jim Boersema is pleased to announce the promotion of his contemporary novel, “Loveless in the Nam.”

Honolulu, HI, March 02, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Lt. Frank Loveless is an anti-hero and self-centered jerk. A craven coward and womanizer, he always lands on his feet and comes out of every situation, no matter how dire, being awarded yet another metal and honor. Accompany him in his combat adventures – or misadventures – is this novel that’s unlike other sober fiction or serious memoirs about the Vietnam War.

Although it revolves around a serious war, this story doesn’t reveal a deep message of good vs. evil or make a mature man out of the main character. It portrays how a self-centered screwball is thrown into the jungles of war, surrounded by blood and gore, and yet survives unscathed time after time due to cowardice and incredible luck.

Frank Loveless’ inexplicable ability to bed any woman he wants often lands him in hot water – like getting his orders switched from a cushy desk job to infantry grunt. Yet he somehow continues to come out on top, being awarded medals and accolades and being recognized by no less than the President. Follow Frank Loveless and his service in the Vietnam conflict as a 2nd Lieutenant in Jim Boersema’s novel – Loveless in the Nam.

“An engagingly flawed protagonist and a grounded sense of reality make Boersema’s novel a smooth, fitfully thoughtful entertainment.” – Kirkus Reviews

Loveless in the Nam is available in both print and ebook formats.
