Daingerfield Island in the Press

John Adam Wasowicz’s Daingerfield Island was featured in the recent editions of the Alexandria Gazette Packet and Publishers Weekly! In the Gazette Packet, Wasowicz shares some insight into his writing process, and talks about one of his novel’s important threads—good vs. evil.  The Publishers Weekly review steps into Wasowicz’s career as a trial attorney, and how that is “put to good use” within the book.

You can pick up your copy of Daingerfield Island online, or at several independent bookstores along the East Coast.  You can also see Wasowicz on his tour!  See our Events page for more information.

NEW RELEASE – Dialogues on the Beach by John C. McLucas

Cover for DIALOGUES ON THE BEACH, a novel by John C. McLucas. A painting by artist Minas Konsolas on the cover: an empty boardwalk bench overlooks an empty Rehoboth beach.

John C. McLucas‘ debut novel, Dialogues on the Beach, is here!

This beautiful paperback, bound in the art of Minás Konsolas, is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Itasca Books, as well as the Ivy Bookshop in Baltimore, Maryland!

Dialogues on the Beach follows Jim, who was…is? in love with his best friend, Tony, but Tony married Rachel, and she is…always was? a fantastic human being and a caring, supportive friend. Still, it’s unfathomable for Jim to think about loving anyone else the way he loved…loves? Tony, and next to impossible for him to consider loving himself.

Until 1993, when Jim joins Tony and Rachel on Rehoboth Beach. Metaphorical lines in the physical sand separate the gay and straight communities, but when Jim meets Joe, that line is erased and redrawn as a labyrinth. Misunderstandings and new perspectives arise at each turn, but one thing remains certain: Jim isn’t the same person he was when he first met Tony. And maybe that’s OK.


Dr. John C. McLucas has taught Italian and Latin at Towson U. since 1984. He has taught Italian language and repertory to voice students at Peabody Conservatory; he is a classically trained singer himself. Dr. McLucas has published numerous scholarly articles and translations as well as poetry and short fiction.
