A Second Edition – a re-edit of the first published by Lucid – is being released by Grey Gecko Press!
Before winter 2014 came in full force, I signed a contract with Grey Gecko Press. They are doing a re-release, sans formatting errors and previous book blemishes with a deleted scene, of The Bookshop Hotel.
I’m officially part of their website.
They will also be handling the publication of the second book in the series… and hopefully many more to come.
Stay tuned for a Lily Hollow cover reveal!
I imagine Lily Hollow to be a relegated area… and The Bookshop Hotel to be the place where people re-discover who they are.
For me parks are good when first of all, they’re not impeccable, and when solitude has appropriated them in such a way that solitude itself becomes an emblem, a defining trait for walkers, sporadic at best, who in my opinion should be irrevocably lost or absorbed in thought, and a bit confused, too, as when one walks through a space that’s at once alien and familiar. I don’t know if I should call them abandoned places; what I mean is relegated areas, where the surroundings are suspended for the moment and one can imagine being in any park, anywhere, even at the antipodes. A place that’s cast off, indistinct, or better yet, a place where a person, moved by who knows what kind of distractions, withdraws, turns into a nobody, and ends up being vague.
