There’s some very exciting news to share today, launching another terrific first-time author: I’m overjoyed to announce that Peter Salomon has accepted an offer for his debut YA novel, THE MEMORY OF HENRY FRANKS, which will be published by Brian Farrey at Flux in winter 2013.
This moody, haunting tale is a mystery-suspense-thriller all twined together with some lovely, lyrical writing. Here’s a little snippet about the story, to whet your appetite for what’s to come:
Sometimes, the only thing worse than forgetting is remembering. Sixteen-year-old Henry Franks almost didn’t survive the accident that claimed his mother’s life and, suffering from post-traumatic amnesia, he relies upon his father to tell him who he is. If he can trust his father. A modern Frankenstein story, THE MEMORY OF HENRY FRANKS details one man’s obsessive desire to save his son and one boy’s need to find himself. While a serial killer stalks the small southern town he lives in, Henry unearths the bitter truth behind his mother’s death—and the terrifying secrets of his own dark past.
Many congratulations, Peter!
