Happy Labora Day!


Big news. Labora Editions is going to do a print run of my very recent historical fiction Surfing with Mel. Naturally, I’d be thrilled about any kind of print run, but Labora Editions isn’t just any kind of publisher.

Not too terribly long ago books were works of craft, at least, often works of art. So it shall be again, I believe. I call Labora Editions a publishing studio, rather than a company, because I alone constitute the whole operation at present, but also because the quality to which I aspire is of a kind more native to art than to commerce.

Release date is October 1. Please spread the word. And keep checking Labora Editions for production photos!

P.S. We love ya, Mel!


Ryan Charles Trusell, of Ora et Labora et Zombies fame, reluctantly ventures into Kindleland for the love of Lickona:

This weekend I broke down and bought my first kindle book….

Lickona’s story, and perhaps the whole Mel Gibson saga writ large, acts as a kind of Rorschach test, especially for Catholics. Tell me what you think about it and I can probably tell you something about yourself, like a proper sideshow carny. My one-word descriptor, if forced to give it, would be “heartbreaking”.
