My second novel, BURN ME OUT, has just been accepted by a publisher and I couldn't be happier. This is a story I've tried to tell in the past, in different media, that I was never really happy with the final outcome of. It took me a while to realize that I was only hitting the surface of that story and that the only medium that would allow me to fully delve into the story I wanted to tell was prose, where I was free to do whatever I liked in as much depth as I needed.
Now, finally, after a long road, that story is ready to be told to all of you.
Here is the back-cover blurb I've written:
Al Vacarro is a made man, with all the honors and responsibilities that entails. But after a literal lifetime of violence in service to the Castella crime family, Al’s past is catching up with him and neither his present nor any future he can imagine seems to hold any hope for salvation.
For the sake of his family and his very soul, he needs out of "the life."
But how does a man escape the only world he's ever known?
This is a story of blood and desperation, and these are the last twenty-four hours of life as Al knows it.
If that sounds like anything you'd be interested in, keep watching this space for more details.
The novel is set to come out late summer of 2020 from Black Rose Writing.
Stay tuned for more and have a happy holiday!
