Jalal Vaziri has looks, money, women—and a habit of running from reality. When he abandons New York and reinvents himself as a poet in a California beach house, he thinks he’s running from a father who hates him, a career mistake, and endless partying. A fresh start is what he needs. And after an intriguing woman enters his life, he believes all his dreams are coming true. But that dream dissolves into nightmare, and Jalal flees again. Only this time, his retreat is blocked by a woman who challenges him to face that it’s himself he’s trying to outrun.
I previewed the cover of my novel The Brevity of Roses on my Facebook page Monday evening. Now I’m sharing it with the rest of the world … or the vast portion of it that reads my blog, at least. [ahem] I don’t have a firm publication date yet, but if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, or sign up for my newsletter, you’ll be the first on your block to know when you can rush to buy a copy.
Update: You can now read a sample chapter here.
