A New Novel about the Power of Love

Black_Hole_cover_200x320In my new short novel, The Black Hole of the Heart, three characters’ stories intersect around the similarity of emotional upheaval and the mysterious phenomenon of the black hole. With irresistable pull at play, each character falls and then finds a new truth about the possibilities of ending, rebirth, and the power of love.

Read The Black Hole of the Heart, now available in paperback or for Kindle from Amazon.com (click the button below) or from your favorite digital bookstore.

Wally and Kali

When Wally looks for the path to love, he finds a naked yogini, a smiling guru, and a ruthless goddess lighting the way. Wally can't figure out how to transcend his life-long string of not quite right relationships. His latest mismatch introduces him to yoga, and while she's soon gone, Wally is hooked on a journey that brings him love, marriage and, maybe, the help of a goddess!

Wally and Kali celebrates the poignancy and humor of modern love and family, set in the contemporary yoga scene.

Get it in paperback or for Kindle from the button below, or from your favorite digital bookstore.

 

"This book was one of the most enjoyable reads ever, for me. I lean toward the classics when it comes to fiction. Wally and Kali is really brilliantly written. There is a beautiful rhythm and flow to Peter Ferko's writing. His characters are so fully constructed; the world he creates in this book completely enveloped me and I didn't want to leave it. I couldn't wait to return to it. I can't wait to read his future books." —Commenter on Amazon.com

Ibsen used to say, about writing plays, that in the first draft your characters are strangers. In the second draft they are friends, and by the third they are close family.

– Charles Harris, from 9 Steps to Writing Dialogue with Rich Subtext.

Charles Harris has a lovely piece on writing dialogue that has subtext. I always liked my dialog, so I’m going to have to try his guidance on and see if I can add some more depth! The quote above really inspired me.

Write reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and your book site!

While I’m a firm advocate of leaving judgement off the yoga mat, in the publishing world, reviews by readers are essential. If you happen to read one of my books, please do me the honor of commenting about it on the book’s page at Amazon.com, goodreads.com, or your favorite source for books.

It helps more people become aware of the books, so they can decide if it would be interesting for them to read.

Thank you!
