New novel released by Rochester author and arts leader; set in NH and focused on LGBT communities

Published on

J. L. Long, Rochester author and the host of the monthly Rochester Writers Night literary salon, has just released his sophomore novel, Ladykillers. This cozy-style mystery novel follows the misadventures of middle-aged trans lesbian Ro Peszke, former cop and current private investigator, as she stumbles her way through a missing persons case, a fledgling romance with a woman ten years her junior, and entirely too much New England snow.

The official book launch and live reading by the author is scheduled for the November Rochester Writers Night event on Wednesday, November 2nd. The reading will be held in the Rose Room at the Rochester Public Library, located at 65 S. Main Street in downtown Rochester, and will begin at 6 p.m. An open mic will follow.

“A thought provoking insight into the .. gender choices of small town America,” writes one advanced reader regarding the novel, “and the price some are willing to pay.”

The book is available through Lulu Books (www.lulu.com/spotlight/jllong) in both ebook and paperback formats, as well as through Amazon. For more information about LADYKILLERS, please visit www.JLLONGWRITES.com or contact author J. L. LONG at jllongwrites@gmail.com or 603-767-1953.
