Happy New Year! Last year was a very exciting year for us as we grew by leaps and bounds and then finished off the year by signing on with distributor, Independent Publishers Group which has meant some amazing things for this little publishing house, even in the two months we’ve been officially working together. We can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring.
Well, we are certain of a few things: lots of new releases! The 2016 seasons will see us release likely ten books. In Spring, we have four and Fall will bring six, maybe seven books. It’s a lot to undertake, but I work with an amazing group of hardworking authors who help me out with all this. Plus, the folks at IPG have been simply amazing, so I’m expecting great things for us all.
I’ve already introduced the Spring 2016 titles, and I wanted to take a moment to reveal the first of the Fall 2016 titles and the first by a new author to Central Avenue: An Elegant Theory by Noah Milligan.
Coulter Zahn is a mild-mannered and shy but promising PhD candidate, completing his research on string theory while his young wife is expecting their first child. Coulter’s delicate mental state becomes further fragmented, however, when his work is criticized, his estranged mother returns, and his wife tells him she’s leaving him.
One evening, with his life and mental health unraveling, Coulter uncharacteristically loses control, irreparably changing the course of the lives around him. The very next morning, he catches a break in his research, discovering the true shape of the universe. Easily influenced by those around him and own untrustworthy psyche, Coulter must decide whether to face the consequence of his actions or finish his research, perhaps making the greatest contribution to science since Einstein’s theory of relativity.
An existential psychological thriller, An Elegant Theory explores how the construction of memory and consciousness can shape motive, guilt, and identity through the lens of a modern-day mad-scientist motif.
From myself and the authors here at Central Avenue Publishing, we wish you the best for 2016…
