I went for years not finishing anything.
Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.
- Erica Jong
I can totally relate to Ms. Jong's words, and I know I am not alone. Writing, in any form, requires a bit of bravery. And a thick skin. Ultimately, the work will be judged - by a peer, by a boss, by a client, by an editor, by the readers - even by the writer herself. And we writers are a critical bunch. But there comes a time when you need to let your words, your story, your voice stand on their own and be judged. Which is why this website now exists. A very kind editor has decided to publish one of the novels I actually did finish, Kissing Atticus Primble. And in order for it to be judged by as many people as possible I need to spread the word. Scary? Hell yeah! But it's time. So bear with me and I'll do my best to entertain you.
Released in August of 2014, Kissing Atticus Primble is a typical teen love story...until it isn't. Purchase your copy today at Whimsical Publications or from Amazon or BarnesandNoble.com. For more information please visit the Kissing Atticus Primble page from the main menu.
I'll be participating in a panel discussion for the Bronx Writers Center on December 6th at the Bronx Council on the Arts: 2700 East Tremont Avenue. Stop by!
