I gathered her to my breast. One day, I thought, we would remember this time, whenjust like the two little images in her gold locketwe were held together by something we could not even name, a rapture that could not be captured in words. And even as we would grow old, those memories of what both of us went through would keep us here, in this embrace, forever young, forever ensconced in love--

Utterly dumfounded I could not bring myself to say another word, which made it all the more difficult to put together a whole sentence, to beg her to wake up her daughter.
So I was just about to say goodbye and so sorry, my mistake, this will never happen again, I promise, when all of a sudden Mrs. Horowitz said, Natasha isnt here.
What? I cried.
You deaf? I said, she isnt here!
Where, then, is she?
Why should I tell you?

It's one of the bleakest things I've written, set in one of the more evocative settings--a sprawling, windowless factory filled with massive oily machines. Picture it. Smell the grease and the warm metal and the mysterious grimy filth. Within the factory, there are hundreds, possibly thousands, of rooms, most of them sealed behind locked doors. And within these rooms, you'll find the saddest child slaves you've ever imagined, rag-draped Dickensian wretches doing endless menial tasks day after day.

It's Book Launch Day for me!

I'm running this Giveaway here:
http://www.pianojenny.com/book-launch-giveaway-twenty-five/



This is the first launch that I feel like I'm doing "right" (at least sort of), so I'm a mixture of super-excited, but nervous that it will tank and I won't have any "excuse" this time.

Part of "doing it right" meant playing around making image teasers for the first time, mostly just using PicMonkey and free stock from Pexels. No great works of art, but I'm rather pleased with them:

Fiction or Prophecy
« Reply #18083 on: April 25, 2017, 05:54:57 PM »
The world is getting more dangerous every day. With the rise of terrorist attacks through the years, the general public is now in fear of the threat that these terrorist group pose to the free world. To what depths will they stoop to achieve their goals? Author Angelo Thomas Crapanzano addresses these dangers in his immersive new book Fiction or Prophecy.

The idea for Fiction or Prophecy was born through a casual discussion with a neighbor in the author's family room. The discussion was based on the news that one of the terrorists claimed that they were secretly developing a backpack nuclear bomb and planned on bombing ten of America's largest city.

Her tears are still here, in the rainbow. I wait for the nozzle to go through its circular motion, and then slip past it, sensing the last of the mist, right here on my skin. At that moment I imagine myself crossing right through her ghost. Perhaps there is a touch, a light touch between us.
I feel a breath of air as she fades away and I come in--

Writing a scene about empathy can be tricky, you always run the risk of telling too much instead of showing.

I am honored to be interviewed on Tabitha Barret's website, where I also offer a giveaway prize. She was curious to know Why should readers buy my book?  To which I said:

Regardless of genre, books can do one of two things: they can let you escape from reality, or they can set a mirror before you where you can see it, even in its darkest corners, with brilliance and precision you have not faced before. My books do both. Set in a different era, for example WWII London, they sweep you away into remembering every detail of that time, from how women styled their hair to how a telephone call from a booth was connected overseas. But arching over all these details is the way you will engage with my characters, and follow them in the hard choices they must make. Their joys and sorrows may reflect what you have gone through in your past. If you want to see whats in your heart, read my stories.

In the last few weeks I have been collaborating with my gifted narrator, Bob Sterry, on the upcoming audiobook edition of my historical fiction novel, The Edge of Revolt. By collaborating I mean, he's breathing life into it, while I'm doing the easy part: listening. By now Bob is on a roll, so the work is drawing to its end faster than I expected. Before the curtain falls, before I'm left alone in the darkened theatre, I asked him to  share his thoughts about this project and about his craft, so I can share them with you--
