Unsolicited 2018

I am excited to announce that Unsolicited Press has crafted a 2018 plan for the reprinting of my first two novels, and the publication of my new novel. Raking the Dust will be released in April, followed by Broken Land in the summer. Nocturne Variations is slated for a November/December release, with plans for a major launch and readings. Stay tuned, and stay true to your heart’s seeing-eye-guides. Or in the immortal words of Le Petit Prince: “What is essential is invisible to the eye, it is only with the heart that one can see rightly.”
NOCTURNE VARIATIONS: Nocturne is a coming-of-age tale, but it is also about the interplay between light and shadow, and how the fragmented self seeks a greater or divine sense of unity. It is about grief, loss, family trauma, ghosts and demons, and the crux of it is embodied and filtered through the protagonist, Piers, a transgender runaway and puppeteer, who bears the scars and stigma of abuse, a Peter Pan love-child of Holden Caulfield and Edie Sedgwick. Her story is told through a jigsaw synthesis of narrative, journal entries, letters, film footage, photographs, monologues, lists, and press clippings.
