Welcome to my website!
I’ve had some good news at the start of the new season. The email came on the Autumn equinox. A poetry chapbook I’ve been working on for quite some time is finally ready for the world and will be published by Finishing Line Press. My book will be in very good company. They print the most beautiful books and I have already had one very good experience with them, Paternal Nocturne.
This one is called THE ME I WAS WITH YOU. I have no ideas for a cover so I hope their creative team is on this one unless you have any suggestions?
In other news, The Reader’s Cafe blog for book talk is going pretty well. The readership is growing slowly but steadily and I am grateful for that. I’m open to any book recommendations.
Life in the world of fiction remains the same. Quarantine is Zoom world. Before our change of life, I was busy doing book clubs but now that we’ve all become so proficient on Zoom, maybe we can continue to discuss this book in this new way.
Here is a bit what the Kirkus Reviews had to say about it:
In this literary novel , two intertwined marriages on the rocks are are brought to a crisis point. As in Standing on the Corner of Lost and Found (2011), Tramontano’s expressive prose intimately follows the thoughts of her characters… The four main characters are well drawn and compelling. The author plays with the expectations people have going into marriages and how often they are disappointed— but also how the potential for change is often waiting somewhere on the next block.
What Love Becomes is a work of literary fiction that traces the intimate landscape of two contemporary marriages from their idealistic, yet misguided beginnings. Each couple mistakenly believe their happily ever after will come without really knowing who’ve they’ve married.
Lisa goes to college in high spirits. Determined to cast off her family’s persistent warnings that life is a tragedy waiting to happen, she is devastated when it does.
