Gladstone Manor Publishing just published The Education of Joey G. is a new novel by Gus Kearney.
I am working with Gus on his book marketing program. I’ve launched his website, biggkelt.com, sent out his first book announcement to family and friends via Constant Contact, and sent out press releases to local media.
Gus is from Lansdowne, Pennsylvania (the setting for the movie Silver Linings Playbook). His novel is a series of stories chronicling the experiences of the main character from age six to young adulthood. Joey has to overcome his own failings, as well as the dysfunctional behavior of the people in his life. Set in the 50s through the early 70s, it is woven with the sensibilities, racism and sexual standards of the times.
Gus will be giving a book reading at Reader’s Books in Sonoma on September 19.
