Pixel Hall Press to Publish Nancy Christie's Collection of Short Stories TRAVELING LEFT OF CENTER
Nancy Christie's short story eBooks "Alice in Wonderland" and "Annabelle" have been so well received and critically acclaimed that her publisher, Pixel Hall Press has decided to release a collection of her short fiction: "Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories" in both print and eBook formats this summer.
Each of the eighteen stories in "Traveling Left of Center" is a literary tour de force, a microcosm of life seen through the wrong end of the telescope. The protagonists are people who, by accident or design, lack a normal vision or understanding of what the world is or who other people really are. Unable or unwilling to seize control over their lives, they allow fate to dictate the path they take-often with disastrous results. Disturbed, yet highly creative in how they approach their distorted vision of life and reality, they find themselves traveling left of center, as they confront life situations for which they are emotionally or mentally unprepared. Their methods of coping range from the humorous ("Traveling Left of Center") and the aggressive ("The Clock") to the passive ("The Healer") and hopeful ("Skating on Thin Ice").
Nancy Christie's brilliance of capturing the mind and mood of these damaged souls makes for fascinating, visceral reading.
"Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories" will be published in Summer, 2014, Reviewers should contact Cynthia Dadson (cynthia (at) pixelhallpress (dot) com) to be put on the list to receive an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC).
