Hello, lovely readers. It’s been four days since my birthday when I snuck a cover reveal into my digital birthday party and about drove my publisher crazy.
You people should have gotten it first. Sorry about that.
My friends and family didn’t deserve it. I know they didn’t. They don’t love Brian like we do.
That’s right! There’s another book in the Brian Listo saga. It’s called Before Pittsburgh and it’s coming out August 15, 2021.
Here’s the cover:
Isn’t it soooooo beautiful? Thanks to the team at Melissa Williams Designs. If you visit their site and click “Portfolio” you’ll see the absolutely gorgeous cover for After December.
Full cover coming soon including the blurb. But just for ya’ll, here’s the copy:
Tony is dead and Brian’s world has unraveled. He starts counting the days in Barcelona: barfights and threesomes. The months in San Francisco: short stories and a new romance. The seasons in Tucson, Nashville, Manila, and Seattle: The Crew growing up and apart. Three years unfold between before-Tony-died and after. Brian thinks he has finally left Virginia and its ghosts behind.
Then September 11th brings time to a standstill and Brian faces a new devastation.
With so much work to be done Before Pittsburgh, Brian’s world expands in unexpected ways but he is haunted by patterns of loss, redemption, and mourning. Can he earn his place in the lives of the people he loves? Or will he remain disconnected, unforgiven, and alone?
