Dylan Debelis (TTR 2.3), Senior Editor at Pelorus Press, is excited to announce the release of his first full-length book of poems from Vine Leaves Press, due out December 12th, 2016. In The Garage? Just Torch It. Debelis balances themes of belonging, love, politics, illness, family and forgiveness with stunning imagery and an intense playfulness. Paced as if the reader is moving through the belly of a burning building, each turn of the page represents the uncovering of things long hidden and the burying of things better left forgotten. This book is a rally cry for the healing power of wonder and the disarming catharsis of grief. Get it HERE.

Lee Krecklow (TTR 1.2), fiction writer from Wisconsin, is set to release his first novel The Expanse Between with Winter Goose Publishing in early 2017. Lee’s eloquently woven words are not to be missed so stay tuned for this exciting release. The gist: When former writer and social recluse Thomas Stone witnesses through his window a violent fight between his neighbor and her boyfriend, the scene ignites memories that, years earlier, inspired his only celebrated novel. Telling its story from three perspectives, The Expanse Between braids lives into a twisted rope of deception, exploitation, and retribution. Get it HERE.

Simone Martel‘s (TTR 2.3) debut novel  A Cat Came Back was just released from Harvard Square Editions on December 12 2016. Told by a woman trapped in the body of a cat, A Cat Came Back intimately portrays a universal struggle: How do you retain your humanity when no one sees you as human?  A Cat Came Back is a moving parable about what it means to be a human being and how sometimes letting go can be the price of holding on to who you are.‭ Get it HERE.
