Fictional Novel Shows Strength in Following Your Heart

"This Is Not Where It Ends," the debut novel by Richard Alan Carter follows the intertwining stories of two individuals who feel lost in their everyday lives and yearn for depth and meaning in the small moments they've let pass them by.

Carter wrote this book to show what it feels like to be at a crossroads in life, and how embracing the unknown can pay off more than staying where its comfortable. The stories of Clara Kozlowski and Officer Nelson Little demonstrate the calm clarity that can come with uncertainty if you choose to trust in yourself.

"I wanted to reflect the contemporary struggle and efforts in the lives of those surrounding me," the author said.

"An inspiring debut novel about finding meaning in life even when it seems impossible." - Kirkus Reviews

For the reader who ever suddenly looked around and felt completely lost, or felt the urge to make drastic changes, "This Is Not Where It Ends" will deeply resonate.
