Well it’s finally here, it’s been a while in the making, but my novel The Refugee is about to be dropped on Friday May 24th, 2013. If you’ve followed me closely you may be aware of this over the past few years, while I mentioned getting it ready for publication. It’s been an arduous journey getting it from old typed out manuscript to an electronic file, and yes that’s how long ago I wrote the damn thing. It’s been collecting dust for far too long, so now it will finally see the light of day this Friday. It will be released only in eBook format, through Kobo, and you will see the link here on Friday.
The novel is a piece of fiction, based on my experiences as a young man, full of piss and vinegar, a story of a young man trying to drop out of society, and live as a writer in the sub-terrain. Although it’s an honest and earnest piece, it’s also full of naivety of a young writer, however many of you faithful readers will see some of the same things you enjoy about my writing and insight. If you wanted to know what it was like for a young upstart Donlak, this will be your chance to get to know him.
I am both proud and horrified of the book, as any artist I think is, deep down, but I welcome all reactions, horrid and glorious as they come.
And there will be more to follow.
