It breaks my heart to share the news with you that my novel, An Ordinary Boy, is going out of print. Late last month I received notice from my publisher, Seventh Window, that they were closing up shop at the end of the year. Though I was sad to learn of this, I knew it was not the end for my debut novel. The publishing rights to An Ordinary Boy will be returned to me, and so I will be able to find a new home for the novel. The book is currently undergoing a much needed copy edit, and I am already in the process of reaching out to publishers. A future reprint will mean a new edition with a possible never-before-published epilogue that answers the questions so many readers have had about what happens to Tom, his friends, and his family.
Though the novel will no longer be purchasable online after tonight, limited copies of the print edition are still available from the NYU Bookstore, the FSA Bookstore at Westchester Community College, and at BGSQD in New York City. Of course, my other books, I Voted for Biddy Schumacher and Erotica, are still in print from New Lit Salon Press.
As the year is ending, I wanted to take this time to thank all the readers and reviewers who stood behind the novel for almost three years. So many of you have said such wonderful and supportive things about my writing and the book. It has meant a great deal to me.
2016 will bring new writing (the start of my second novel – watch this space), and hopefully a much deserved second act for An Ordinary Boy.
Happy New Year, and Thank You.
