Over Christmas, Will receives a visit from his only remaining child, his daughter Alicia, who broke off contact with him five years ago. Alicia informs Will that she’s getting married in the spring, and asks him to attend the wedding.
As the wedding nears, Will must find a way to put the pain and guilt he feels Trixie’s death behind him and pull himself together for his daughter’s sake.
Today we have a sneak peek from author Marian D. Schwartz’s literary fiction book,The Writers’ Conference.
After Laura Belmont finishes writing her first novel, she enrolls in The Clymer Workshop, one of the oldest writers’ conferences in the country, where she hopes to make a connection with one of the famous staff authors or a well-known literary agent. The atmosphere at the Workshop is unexpectedly intense. The male writers on the staff are more interested in having sex with Laura than in her manuscript. Staff members worry that their reputations may be at risk. As anxiety builds and hope dwindles, Laura thinks she’s made a mistake. Then something extraordinary happens that makes her change her mind.
A human embryo is allowed to preview the world before deciding whether to be born. His name is Prospect. He will meet a range of people to help him make up his mind. Trish Mesmer is the scientist charged with counseling Prospect. The book is literary fiction at heart, with a somewhat sci-fi premise. The book may not appeal to readers of hard core sci-fi. Those who appreciate the trippy, modern world on display in the movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” or “Being There” may find themselves at home. The Prospect of My Arrival, the literary fiction book by Dwight Okita, is available on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com[subscribe2]
