We caught up with John Adam Wasowicz after his recent signing at the Island Bookstore, and he had these lovely words to say:

We met some wonderful people at Island Bookstore on the Outer Banks, NC. The hospitality of the bookstore staff was extraordinary. It was a reminder of the magical power of a bookstore. The stories customers bring inside with them are as special as the stories in the books awaiting their perusal.

The Priceless Art of Editing

Happy Friday, BHB friends and family!

After reading “They also serve who stand and edit” by editor extraordinaire John E. McIntyre, we couldn’t resist sharing it with you! McIntyre speaks to those who’ve heard the Call of the Editor, offering advice on navigating current publishing practices and moments of self-doubt. It’s an enlightening read for editors, authors, and the people who cut paychecks to both.

Editors are important, and their work is priceless. Thank you, editors, for all that you do!

NEW RELEASE – Daingerfield Island by John Adam Wasowicz

Today’s the big day! The exciting mystery thriller novel, Daingerfield Island, is here!

You can snag a paperback of Daingerfield Island today, whether you’re joining author John Adam Wasowicz for a drink at New Columbia Distillers, picking up a signed copy at Politics and Prose in DC, or shopping online through the BHB catalogue!

Daingerfield Island follows Elmo Katz, a defense attorney from Alexandria.  Katz is no stranger to the bureaucracy and twisted truths that lurk in the justice system, but his world is upended when he finds himself entangled in the roots of a complex terrorist plot. Places he once navigated with ease are now obscured by shadows. Katz must weave his way through political intrigue, courtroom machinations, and police skulduggery to save what’s left of the truth—and himself.

Daingerfield Island – Release Party with Author John Adam Wasowicz

BrickHouse Books is happy to announce the upcoming release of Daingerfield Island, an exciting mystery thriller from author John Adam Wasowicz!

Daingerfield Island introduces us to Elmo Katz, a defense attorney from Alexandria.  Katz is no stranger to the bureaucracy and twisted truths that lurk in the justice system, but his world is upended when he finds himself entangled in the roots of a complex terrorist plot.  Places he once navigated with ease are now obscured by shadows.  Katz must weave his way through political intrigue, courtroom machinations, and police skulduggery to save what’s left of the truth—and himself.

Daingerfield Island puts the ‘I’ in danger: intelligent, imaginative, intriguing. The book is a timely metaphor about the power of alternative facts in a post-truth world.

—Michael Neff, author of All The Dark We Will Not See
