Young Again by Don Trowden and Valerie McKee | Publerati

Young Again. Advance reviews from regular people are great to see. “This book was really a surprise, I scanned the description quickly and it sounded unique so I gave it a try and it exceeded expectations.

Mabel is such a force as a main character. She has lead a long career as a very successful Blues and Jazz artist, but there were regrets of an abusive husband, and the inevitable end of her career. We meet her now at 90 years old, struggling with the pain of getting old and dealing with early dementia. Her granddaughter recently died, and so her young teen Great-granddaughter Priscilla has come to visit for the week.

Priscilla feels like a young Mabel, and their dynamic is really sweet. After hearing Mabel complain of her pain, Priscilla makes a wish that she can be young again for just one week, and huzzah it works! I love the way they write it where it gives you a heightened appreciation for all the amazing things your body can do for you.

With Mabel young, going as Peggy, we bring back her handsome doctor who in some hilarious writing is just a puddle around her beauty. There is some dealing with how much attraction plays into love, although things get a bit sappy towards the end. There are also several other characters all who I found really enjoyable. The ending is a bit perfectly tied up, but I'm not totally mad about it. If anyone can make what they want happen, it's Mabel!

This book was a free download from Netgalley, and I'm so glad I got it!

Mother Tongue by Joyce Kornblatt | Publerati

“In Joyce Kornblatt’s exquisitely written novel, Mother Tongue, a middle-aged woman discovers her long-lost identity along with the layers of loss spiraling from her having been kidnapped at birth. The immediate and long-felt impacts of this tragic loss—crossing generations and continents—are explored with compassion, precision, and depth. Sympathetic characters, an abundance of human wisdom, and beautiful, lyrical prose combine to make Mother Tongue a wonderful read.”

Two great new author blurbs just received. Thanks to these generous authors: “Mother Tongue is a gripping and gorgeously written novel of identity, loss, and redemption." -- Hilma Wolitzer, author of Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket

"A beautiful, wise, spellbinding novel that dramatizes, in the most lucid prose, a woman's pursuit of her own lost identity. The shock of discovery reverberates from the beginning to the end. Mother Tongue is fiction at its best and boldest, with a penetrating focus on the restorative power of truth." -- Joanna Scott, author of The Maniken and Careers for Women

Compass by Murray Lee | Publerati

"A darkly comedic tale, superbly told, COMPASS is a tour-de-force debut from an author whose name we should all remember. This is storytelling at its finest, featuring shape-shifting Arctic landscapes, a wryly laconic Inuit guide, an undersea sorceress, hockey stick harpoons, a chorus of seals and a disturbing finale. I read it wrapped in warm blankets, both grateful and envious at not having to face the same travails as the novel's hapless narrator." — Will Ferguson, Giller Prize-winning author.

A carefree magazine reporter ventures to the Arctic's floe edge and chaos ensues in this adventure novel where survival skills are tested.

Mother Tongue | Publerati

“The “what-if” question that triggered this novel evokes a nightmare scenario: What if I found out I was kidnapped when I was a baby? In beautifully precise prose that resonates like the best poetry, Kornblatt’s central character Nella/Naomi, the kidnap victim and a writer of fiction herself, discovers and creates her own lost story and the lost lives of all those linked to her. In doing so, she evokes the questions we human beings often ask ourselves as we grow and change and redefine our lives: Who am I? Who might I otherwise have been? Who are my ancestors and family and how did they shape me? What replaces the map I had thought was guiding my life? In Mother Tongue, Joyce Kornblatt wisely reminds us that it is only through imagination, compassion, and stories, such as the ones she crafts so elegantly here, that we can save ourselves and those we love.”

Wayne Karlin, author of A Wolf by the Ear

When dead writers speak, we should listen. Great advice for writers and book lovers from Trollope, Coleridge, and Sinclair Lewis in this new blog post. https://publerati.com/when-dead-writers-speak/

When dead writers speak . . . at a recent estate sale, I came upon the book A Reader for Writers: Confidential Talk about Authorship by 27 Writers, edited by William Targ and published in 1951. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming a novelist or publisher, as it is filled wit...

Compass recounts the adventures of a man who, after traveling the world shilling stories for a major geographic magazine about historic expeditions and explorers, sets out on an adventure of his own—an ill-advised and poorly planned trip to the Arctic floe edge under the disorienting twenty-four-hour summer sun. When the ice breaks and his guide disappears, the narrator ends up alone and adrift in the hostile northern sea. He draws on his knowledge of historic expeditions to craft his own, inept, attempt at survival. As time passes and he becomes increasingly disoriented, his obsession with Sedna, the Inuit goddess of the sea, becomes terrifyingly real. Info here: https://publerati.com/compass-by-murray-lee/

In our loud age of celebrity culture, reality television, and cable news, quietly excellent novels...

Craft beers, artisanal cheeses, small-batch bourbons – these and many other niche businesses thrive today by providing quality products for audiences seeking value and exceptional experiences. So why not “small-batch publishing”? Caleb Mason runs Publerati, his independent publishing enterprise, from his home on Vinalhaven, a coastal Maine island reached by a 75-minute ferry ride. There, he happily publishes books like the novel Mother Tongue by Joyce Kornblatt, a once-bestselling author whose later work was turned down again and again. On Vinalhaven, Caleb Mason has situated his business among the lobster boats and the summer cottages by relying not only on good writing but also technology. The key to success, he says, is a focus on scale – the same approach as at your favorite microbrewery. “That scale is made possible by technological advancements,” he tells CCC’s Chris Kenneally. “All my books are print-on-demand available— there has to be an order in hand for the book to be printed and to ship to whoever it’s going to go to. And by going that route and not having the inventory overheads, that made sense for the kind of novels I’m publishing. “The challenge really is, ‘how do I make this effort viable?’ And the only way to do that was to keep costs incredibly low. I do most of the work myself other than graphic design. I do the acquisitions. I pay authors higher royalty rates than they get from traditional publishers, but I don’t pay advances.”

Hi, Neighbor!
Book publishing is changing. The founder and publisher of Publerati, a hybrid ebook publisher and literary agency start-up, writes about the changing scale of publishing. He suggests new ebook and printing technologies disrupt the status quo much like what happened with Airbnb and Uber. His belief is that the economy is shifting from mega to micro businesses...take a look.
