I am pleased to tell you about Alex in ’63, my first novel, and I hope you may be interested in pre-ordering it.
Writing this fiction story has been a lot of fun; and now I look forward to sharing it with readers who have “ever been thirteen”.
My goal is to have it published sometime this winter. As an independent author/publisher, I am using a pre-ordering process, so I can better gauge how many books to have printed. No payment will be required from you until the book is ready to enter your life. The retail price, I am estimating, will be $20-$25 in soft-cover.
If you would like to pre-order a copy or copies, please send an email, or phone me.
About Alex in ’63:
If you’ve ever been thirteen…
Alex Wheeler reminds us what it’s like to be a teenager on a collision course with self-doubt, intimidation, love, and mystery. At the start of grade 9—in his hometown Calgary, Alberta—Alex is trying to figure out how to deal with a moody, football-star brother; an attractive, but vindictive high school girl; and a strict, ex-navy, school principal. At the same time, local incidents and international events impact Alex and his family in deeply personal ways. Maybe a girl, recently arrived from England, can embolden him as she shares glimpses of a pop-culture revolution unfolding back home.
Alex in ‘63 is a bumpy-road tribute to home and school and neighbourhood.
