I am excited to reveal the cover and announce that my upcoming novella, FRAGILE DREAMS, is now available for pre-order through the JournalStone Publishing website.
The novella will be officially released November 18 as a paperback and as an eBook.
“Fracassi mixes scenes of intense physical drama with deftly-drawn moments from a life lived in the shadow of a heartbreaking absence. Along the way, he never lets the suspense slacken, even as his narrative rockets to its harrowing conclusion.”
— John Langan, author of The Fisherman
About FRAGILE DREAMS:
When a savage earthquake rocks Los Angeles, buildings crumble and highways fall apart. Matthew Calvert, a young family man on the job interview of his life, finds himself at ground zero of the destruction – his building collapses beneath him and he wakes to find himself buried under a mountain of rubble, badly injured, trapped in the dark.
As his injuries worsen with each passing hour, he clings to memories to fight off the fear of impending death, the hope for salvation. Soon, however, the memories turn morbid and his terror escalates.
There are things with him in the dark.
Trying desperately to hold onto his sanity, Matthew clings to the barrier between this life and the next, his mind flipping between reality and delusion, before confronting a final horrifying truth:
Sometimes the hallucinations are real.
