For Immediate Release:
VERONIKA CARNABY UPCOMING NOVEL, The Speakeasy, EXPECTED FOR LATE SPRING RELEASE.
Acclaimed American writer and poet Veronika
Carnaby recently announced release plans for her upcoming book, The Speakeasy, slated to hit store shelves and Amazon.com in late spring of 2013.
80 years following the repeal of Prohibition, Veronika Carnaby's highly anticipated novel returns to the era drowned in the shadow of the Great Depression and dominated by outlaws wreaking havoc against a dry society. The story introduces long-lost pals, Norman Delaney and Henry Berrings, who attempt to rekindle their friendship and repair their broken lives by unveiling a saloon in the heart of 1930s New York City. Met with sin, crime, desperation, and betrayal, their efforts test the limits of morality and piece together a story of endurance in the face of struggle.
The book sees Carnaby continuing in the trace of historical fiction, but adds elements different to that of her debut novel, Bohemia. "The forthcoming book will offer readers quite a different story and style from that of my last book," the author expressed in a recent statement. "While history remains a prevalent component, it also falls under the action/adventure and crime genres, making for what I hope to be a powerful and exhilarating story for readers."
The Speakeasy will be available for purchase worldwide on Amazon and in select bookstores.
