No good book has ever been written that has in it symbols arrived at beforehand and stuck in. … I tried to make a real old man, a real boy, a real sea and a real fish and real sharks. But if I made them good and true enough they would mean many things.
–Ernest Hemingway, 1954, referring to The Old Man and the Sea.
That’s right: my début novel, Like Glass, is now available on the Kindle platform! Accessible from four Amazon sites – U.S., U.K., French, and German – you can now have the story of Rob Jackson on any device that supports Kindle – including Android, Blackberry, Windows, Mac, and others!
A little more about the book:
Like Glass is, in essence, a love story. However, to say it is a romance would be misleading.
Rob Jackson is an entrepreneur who lives to work rather than works to live. His best friend is a six-pack of beer and he leads a life that is convenient for him, but to others he merely exists. This simple existence changes the day he receives a phone call which compels him to revisit his past and to tackle both an unfading love and an ever-present hate he’d tried diligently, and unsuccessfully, to forget.
As Rob’s past invades his present, he is forced to come face to face with a lost love and to confront years of painful truths that he had tried to ignore. He soon finds himself on a dark journey of regret and despair as he struggles to come to terms with the hand that life has dealt him.
