There’s still a ways to go before Novel #3 is ready to show its face to the world. But in the meantime, I’ve managed to prepare a wintery gift to all you faithful readers, just in time for the holiday season: remember that upcoming novelette I mentioned some months back?

Well, it’s time to spill the beans. Clay Tongue: A Novelette will be coming your way on December 19th. That’s right, only a few weeks away!

Clay Tongue is a story about the nature of communication. It’s a tale about what it’s like to be a shy little kid in a big and not-so-shy world. It’s a narrative that examines the limits of human language, the deep connection between the very young and the very elderly, and how the magical realism of youth connects to the painful transition of growing older. Though Clay Tongue may be a story as small as its protagonist, it’s also a story I needed to tell, a journey I poured my heart into, and I’m proud of how it has turned out.

Without further ado, here is the reveal:

From the author of the award-winning Pale Highway and the radio play Something in the Nothing comes a short fantasy of love, shyness, and the secrets of human communication.
Katie  Mirowitz  is  a  small  little  girl  with an even smaller little voice.   She  possesses  a  deep love  for  her  grandfather,  who suffers from aphasia after a bad stroke cuts loose the part of his brain that processes verbal  language.  When  Katie uncovers a miraculous  secret  inside  the pages  of  her  grandfather’s  old journal, as well as an ancient key, she goes out into the woods in search of answers — hoping to uncover a mythical being that, if it exists, may just have the ability to grant wishes.
