New Hampshire Author Extends Marketing Launch of Inspirational Road Novel


New Hampshire author Anthony Catlin extended the marketing launch of his inspirational road novel, French Pond Road, to the end of August due to unprecedented interest from readers. The novel has been hailed by critics.

Henniker, NH, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com)-- New Hampshire author Anthony Catlin announced today that due to interest from readers he was extending the launch of a road novel hailed as inspirational.

The novel, French Pond Road, is the story of a father and son reunited after sixteen years, and is published by Hope Mountain Press. The marketing launch, originally scheduled on July 31, featured a package of bonus gifts offered by experts and authors along with the purchase of one copy of French Pond Road.

“I’m very pleased by how it’s done so far. Many people have contacted me and asked to have the offer put up again,” said Catlin.

Responding to the interest, which saw sales of the book steadily grow since the end of last month, Hope Mountain Press extended the package of bonus gifts through the end of August.

The novel has garnered critical praise for its vivid characters and uplifting message of redemption and hope against the odds. Catlin is a writer and high school teacher in New Hampshire and is also the author of a previous novel, Birdman, published by Trafford Press in 2001.

Both novels feature Billy Kagan, an itinerant roofer who struggles with a legacy of youthful crimes and peccadilloes, including losing contact with his wife and child. He has found some peace of mind and a semblance of order in middle age while living in a trailer on the edge of a state park in central New Hampshire. His way of life is interrupted when his son, following in his father’s delinquent footsteps, appears in his driveway on a motorcycle with his Venezuelan girlfriend in tow.

“It’s about how both father and son struggle with their own self-images in the course of coming to grips with their love and need for each other,” said Catlin.
