Hi! Sorry I have taken a hiatus from posting delicious recipes, but I have been juggling a lot of things.
One of them has been my novel, “The Automat.” I had finished this a few years ago, but I left it in the hands of an agent, and that did not go too far. I just recently decided to free it from my computer and publish it for e-readers (kindles, nooks, ipads, etc).
The Automat is a fictional story exploring the dark side of human nature and the innate desire of being loved. It is a story of unexpected change in the routine of one’s simple life, of obsession, guilt, and the consequences of betrayal. The Automat will appeal to readers of literary fiction with dark undertones.
The Automat is a story of Horace Gray, a dispirited introvert, who takes notice of a mysterious set of eyes that stare at him from behind the Automat wall. Horace sets out on his own adventure to meet the woman behind the automat wall, and ultimately understand her motives. He soon finds himself obsessed with his new pursuit as everything else around him becomes inconsequential.
I hope some of you will pick up a copy (or download, rather)…and enjoy it. I’m also working on a humor-based book at the moment, taking care of a toddler, working full-time, and getting my doctorate. Life!
