Two long-time local writers and emerging new publishers, Elia Seely and Nancy Slavin, will celebrate the publication of their novels, respectively titled Whisper Down the Years and Moorings.
The two writers created Feather Mountain Press as a publishing venue dedicated to writers whose novels are well-written, literary, and include soulful characters and storylines.
Seely’s novel, Whisper Down the Years, is a literary mystery set in Orkney Island off the coast of Scotland, where the protagonist, Finn Ross, has retreated to find clarity about his dissolving career and marriage. Ross unwittingly discovers the body of a local eminent musician and his involvement in the case thwarts his desire to return to his native Belfast. An enigmatic island girl and her grandmother join Finn in his pursuit of the mystery, and all three find themselves caught in a web of lies and secrets, revealing threads of old sins and links to shadowy witchcraft.
Slavin’s novel, Moorings, follows a young woman, Anne Holloway, as she journeys from the lower forty-eight up to Alaska to find her biological father. While unraveling the violent, deceitful truth about her family’s history, Anne’s presence precipitates break-ups, boat crashes, and, even, unexpected storms. By making the journey, Anne discovers true identity can be found within.
The Feather Mountain Press Book Launch is open to the public and refreshments will be served. After Seely and Slavin read from their novels, there will be time for Q & A. Book sales will be provided by Cloud and Leaf Bookstore in Manzanita. The Hoffman Center is located at 594 Laneda Avenue in Manzanita. For more information visit feathermountainpress.com.
