You're invited to the book launch for Will Morning Ever Come by Darren Tomalty

Darren
Dear Brian, 
I learned so much from attending 3 or 4 of your workshops, thank you Brian. The fire in my belly never went away, even when I moved downtown Toronto. 
I wanted to let you know that I made a valiant attempt at conventional publishing houses, query letters and the like. After 2 years of beautifully written rejection emails by some of the best agents, I went Indie with my book. It's been a fun ride. 
The story is fiction but delves into struggles of coming out with a bigoted father, sexual confusion, nightclubs, substance abuse, all while being humorous and hopeful. The underlying theme is a postcard to Montreal and a love story between a father and son. Comparables would be a gay Secrets of Ya Ya Sisterhood, Fried Green Tomatoes, Piano Man's Daughter and The Prince of Tides
My sincere appreciation. More than anything, I would like to share positive messages about difficult struggles with the younger generation.
Thank you,
Darren

Will Morning Ever Come: A novel
Kyle didn’t see a way out of the antagonism between him and his father, until he learned the truth about him.
When 18-year-old Montreal party boy Kyle Regan resurfaces for his grandmother’s funeral he comes face to face with his angry father, Russell, who shows no sign of tolerating a gay son.
A trio of Dot’s friends are hell-bent on reconciling the gossip by detailing her life, uncovering stories about his father’s childhood that don’t seem to add up.
Kyle’s feels a growing spiritual connection to Grandma that turns his life inside out.
In this postcard to Montreal, Will Morning Ever Come is a moving, often amusing, coming of age story, about the complex bond between father and son.
Will Morning Ever Come is available on Amazon here.

  1. Hi Brian, I've learned that to get your novel out there, it is recommended you have a book trailer. I had some satisfaction in producing one with iMovie.

    Check out the trailer at:

    Also, I've had good news of getting my book picked up by Glad Day Book Store in Toronto. Again, thanks for posting my book information.

    Sincerely,
    Darren
