For a limited time, you can get my novella Anya Chases Down the End for free in the Amazon Kindle store. This is a fun, short read — the story of young person chasing after her dreams — in publishing, no less — and how that chase gets a lot more chaotic after she loses track of a coveted manuscript. Off she has to race into the New York City night to track it down, a madcap quest filled with secret door venues, abandoned subway stations, concealed backrooms and crash pads, mysterious missed connections on old school rotary phones, electric alleyway kisses, and revelatory poetry hiding in plain sight.
Here are some quotes from recent reviews:
“Anya Chases Down the End is a fantastic read for a reader of any genre, but I would find it especially fitting for someone who enjoys coming-of-age stories and poetry. There’s drama and chaos, romance, literary excitement, and a remarkable sense of humor within the story that I found enjoyable while reading. I was impressed with the author’s ability to showcase a young main character with a sense of motivation and desire for a successful future.” — Kourtney Bradley (Full review at Reedsy Discovery)
“For me, Anya Chases down the End read a bit like a NYC version of Alice falling down the rabbit hole. It’s a whirlwind of crazy publishing adventures, back rooms upon back rooms upon back rooms, and endless street poets. Honestly, I really kind of loved it. The story feels like a slightly magical, bittersweet exploration of chasing dreams, being present, and learning to say goodbye. It was sweet, it was fun, and it didn’t try to be more than what it was.” (Full review at Goodreads)
