Book Debut Day

Violet Hart is a photographer trying to cobble out a life for herself in the womb-like interior of Detroit. Nearing forty, she’s keenly aware that the opportunity for artistic recognition is on the wane. When her lover, Bill Fontenel, a Detroit mortician, needs a photograph of a body, she agrees to takes the picture. Violet is energized by the subject matter, and persuades Bill to allow her to take pictures of some of his other “clients." She is able to interest a gallery owner in mounting a show. 
Violet is overly confident because dead bodies are commonplace in Detroit. This project
soon places Violet in the position of having to strain to meet her quota.
As time runs out, how will Violet come up with enough subjects to photograph without losing her soul or her life in the process?

Should you want to read SHOT IN DETROIT, here are some places to order it. Or come to my book launch at the Huntington Woods Library on June 22nd where Book Beat will be on hand. Or Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor on June 25th (with Bryon Quertermous).
