Concord author publishes book
A tale of despair shrouded by hope, “November,” by Concord author J. William English, takes readers to St. Dunstans, Scotland, a tiny coastal village where nothing ever happensóat least, it didn’t.
For Liam November O’Callaghan, a struggling writer and recent graduate of the University of Dublin, something is missing no matter how hard he tries to settle back in at home. In addition to the dangerous and difficult choices he faces, a ruthless murderer arrives in the village and makes Liam his target.
According to a press release from the publisher, Tate Publishing and Enterprises, this contemporary tale of conflicted love, bitterness and raw emotion is a bleak and at times dark story, but shrouded with the light of hope. As readers learn, there is always a way out.
The book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

It is now a monthly literary magazine with more than 100 subscribers. A recent high school graduate, English is applying to Cambridge University where he wants to study Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic arts.
Book covers Huntington’s disease
PublishAmerica is the publisher of “Sheltered from the Storm” by Susan E. Lawrence of Salisbury.
Lawrence battles with Huntington’s disease. After publishing “On a High Wire, Without a Net,” she continues to write specifically about her journey in dealing with the disease (HD).
This book specifically targets the stages of the disease. Lawrence believes that all people have something to deal with in life, and the challenges teach people about perseverance, love and gratitude.
She believes as long as there is no cure for HD, it is crucial to be educated about this illness. Those who have HD must also be an active participant and help re-discover areas that may help stall the progression of this disease.
“With HD, we know that the storm will be violent, so why not be…sheltered from the storm.”
