This novella is scheduled for publication by a new New Jersey-based small literary publisher called Black Angel Press This project represents my attempt to pursue publication in a way that may very well be the wave of the future. The imprint provides publicity and a website for sales of print and electronic versions of the book.The total cost of $1,200 will cover hiring a book designer and cover artist, as well as technical preparation of the manuscript. I plan to publicize the book through the imprint's website, as well as my own website and via various online literary blogs, as well as through traditional media. I also intend to schedule readings and book signings at bookstores and other venues in New Jersey and up and down the Hudson River.
