I invite you to follow along with me on Facebook at facebook.com/kielandfiction! And stay tuned for the release date; Lovelza will be downloadable on Amazon Kindle at a special super-low discount price for a limited time following its launch, so be sure to catch her before the promotion ends!
The main thrill of Lovelza is one of inner conflict, a transgression of morality that gets pushed far out of control. The mystery is not as crime-centric as it is an unveiling of classical antiquity and mythological secrets, that grand quest for spiritual truth in the form of mad science—a quest that quickly spirals into an occult nightmare. The intimacy of reading the protagonist's first-person narrative sets the ultra-personal feel of the story, aided by a diverse and offbeat company of supporting characters. Following the self-righteous ambitions of a young neurologist walking the lines between hero and villain, the plot is a crescendoing storm of twists and turns, and there's no better place to twist and turn than the narrow, dank, labyrinthine streets of modern Venice in the pandemonium of carnival season. It's a scene largely inspired by my own exploration of the historical architecture floating atop this ancient Italian lagoon, and I'm extremely excited to share it with you!
