It’s been a few weeks now since Holy Fool, Holy Father has been available through Amazon (e-Book, hardcover and softcover), and through kobo.com supported e-devices as well. My website, http://www.holyfoolholyfatherthenovel.com also contains information and background concerning this book, me as an author, and direct Shopping Cart ordering instructions.
I want this blog to be a place where the curious, the possibly (initially) scandalized, and the enthusiastic (and not so) can share thoughts and feelings about this three-year labor of love, sweat and occasional frustration.
It’s Advent Sunday, the beginning of a new liturgical year, and also an ideal beginning for the discussion of this literary first effort. One thing to note. I have been struck as I have composed this work over the past months and years at how uncannily “the real world” seems to track major themes of this book, even as I’m writing it. My writing approach is “heads-down”, I don’t look to first see what’s going on “out there” before I sit to write. Still, it’s scary to see how, indeed, truth and fiction often make for interesting bedfellows!
Hope to have more to share, and to which to respond, in coming days. Peace to one and all.
