"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

The Moon is Real update

I've submitted my new novel The Moon is Real to my editor at Oberon Press and will now wait to see what she has to say. It is the third book in a trilogy that includes The Dirty Milkman (2005) and A Place of Pretty Flowers (2007). If Oberon accepts the manuscript it would likely be released in the fall of 2013. If it's rejected then it's back to work...

"One of the leading literary publishers in Canada."

I've decided to try for a press in Atlantic Canada...Oberon has been gracious enough to give me a chance to try this out, and if I can't find a suitor, they will allow me to resubmit it...
