Press Release: Exile on Bridge Street to be Published

I am very happy to announce that a contract has been signed and an agreement struck between myself and Three Rooms Press for the second book in the Auld Irishtown trilogy: Exile on Bridge Street16364_101636159865060_3533431_n

The friendship between author and publisher began with the publication of Light of the Diddicoy in March of 2014. Strong sales and positive reviews helped the two sides to decide to move forward with the second book.

Publication of Exile on Bridge Street is slated for March, 2016 to coincide with the centenary celebrations of Ireland’s Easter Rising. In April of 1916, Irish rebels took control of locations in Dublin. The rebels were executed by British authorities, which inspired a countrywide revolution over the next few years.The Proclamation of Independence, written by rebel leader and poet Padraig Pearse, came to fruition years later.

Light of the Diddicoy took place from October 1915 to April 1916. Exile on Bridge Street takes up where it left off, covering the time frame of April 1916 to February 1919.

Three Rooms PressIn the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhoods, the story of the teenage Irish immigrant William “Liam” Garrity who was taken in by the waterfront, Irish-American gang known as The White Hand continues.

For me, Three Rooms Press and the Auld Irishtown trilogy is a perfect marriage. I am very proud to be associated with a gritty publisher of Dada Poetry, punk rock memoirs, NYC poets and, of course, historical novels of the Irish in Brooklyn.

The second is "Exile on Bridge Street," (Three Rooms Press 2016). This blog is mostly concerned with the books and the history of Brooklyn, the Irish-Americans and the gangs of Brooklyn and New York. I have also written lots of other stuff, namely two other books, the first called, "An Affair of Concoctions" and the book of poetry, "Love and Maladies." There are also articles sprinkled around the internet about anything from the anarchist movement of the Spanish Civil War to the French Symbolists of late 1800s Paris to the Irish Famine.
