Nobody has actually seen her for several weeks, except perhaps Edna's son, but he isn't talking. In her search for the truth, Edna plunges deep into danger when she uncovers more than one murder and struggles to prevent another."
Alexis Brooks de Vita announces her newest publication, Dante's Inferno: A Wanderer in Hell, is available in e-book and paperback from Blood Moon Publishing.
"For an urban English-speaker in the twenty-first century, the original language of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, the first act of his trilogy, the Comedy, would read like a shockingly accurate critique of today’s globalized society, if we could understand it. Dante’s Inferno: A Wanderer in Hell gives second-millennial English-language readers a chance to share the pathos, the humor, and the raw political aggression of Dante’s vision of Hell.
Dante’s Inferno: A Wanderer in Hell preserves the meaning of Dante’s verses, line by line. Where a literal translation of his highly philosophical but often slang-rich text will not make sense for the twenty-first century English-speaking reader, the most reasonable compromise of the literal and figurative is used."
Facades, a novel by Alex Marcoux, is coming back in print in paperback from Bella Books and should be available next week. The novel can be pre-ordered today.
"She's a singing sensation.
When rumors about her private life send her CD sales plummeting, Anastasia is trapped with few options. Desperate, manager Sidney Marcum helps her star client concoct a façade to distract fans and media. It seems to work ... for a while.
Sidney has skeletons of her own, life-threatening ones. She won't tell, even though the compelling connection she feels to Anastasia makes her long for a happiness she cannot have. Instead she puts on a brave front and hides her feelings to safeguard her secrets.
Outside forces create cracks in their façades until only Anastasia and Sidney can tell what's real by what's in their hearts. But some secrets come at immeasurable expense."
Watch for more new releases next month.
