I was wondering if anyone would be interested in reviewing my new novel, Heaven Sent. I am also up for guest posting, interviews and giveaways. So far, I have been stunned by the reaction I have been getting for the book.
Heaven Sent is trangressional literary fiction, set in the beautiful town of Bristol, UK (until my heroes find themselves on the run and end up in London).
Sixteen year old Carlo has no experience of the world. He desperately wants eternity to provide an alternative to the strict moral imperative of his Catholic parents. When Daizee Byatt, a girl from the other side of the tracks, crashes into Carlo's life, the course of his future veers off the road. This is the story of what Heaven Sent.
It is dark, so a torch might be necessary for some sections - but at its heart Heaven Sent is a beautiful love story that somehow retains an innocence against some unfathomable odds. It is also quite a surreal tale that knocks on the doors of magic realism. Here's the first chapter, it'll give you a taste of the style. http://xavierleret.com/?p=145#more-145
I'd be really happy to hear from anybody who might also be into the idea of hosting me on their blog - that would be truly fabulous and humbling.
This is an ebook only release. I will be doing a printed book later in the year so I am looking to gather some momentum for that.
You can contact me at email@example.com or simply reply to this thread. I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your time.
