We’re Expecting Twins!

Take advantage of our due date by ordering early.

Ron Terranova’s Personal Exorcism, The Red Wing Chronicles, and M.R. Koch’s Halfway to Impossible will be out on Sept 10th.


Max Orbach is teetering recklessly between the two opposing forces of his unfulfilled wife, Caroline, and his troubled best friend, Sam, who obsessively pursues a mysterious woman in New Orleans.The nonlinear story bounces around within the first two decades of the 21st century, as the protagonist struggles to understand his place in the changing professional and social landscape of the early 2000s. Meanwhile, major hurricanes (Sandy in New York, Katrina in New Orleans) seem to randomly shape the course of his life.





Dark, cynical, surreal and sardonically funny, The Red Wing Chronicles is a unique hybrid of a book. Narrated from the point of view of a man sinking into the abyss as he reflects upon his traumatic life and a childhood of sickness and abuse, while haunted by the ghost of a sadistic father. Dark memories are unleashed, and questions and reflections abound regarding the fragile, illusory nature of memory, the tenuousness of sanity, the hypocrisy of authority and the subjectivity of morality. Part memoir, part philosophical rant in a stream of consciousness frenzy, this is the story of one man’s tightrope walk between madness and memory while wearing and being guided by the greatest pair of shoes ever cobbled.



Don’t Avert Your Eyes!

“There have been times when I’m actually afraid to avert my eyes from my Red Wings. For when I do there is not just disorientation but in fact disintegration of losing identity and not knowing who or where I am…”

Ron Terranova’s stream of consciousness personal exorcism must be one of the best memoirs we’ve collectively read. It’s raw, emotional, nonlinear, like the true spirit of memory, jerking us here and there and bringing us to the worst times and we have to fight our way out to remember the good times, the best times, tiny little snippets clasped from a life of abuse.

Dropping September 10th. Pre-orders will be available this week.
