Anaphora Literary Press has issued a press release announcing that Something Is Rotten in Fettig will be published in February, 2016. Click below for the release.
Initially, the novel’s working title was The Trial of Leopold Plotkin. It wasn’t until much later that the title was changed to Something Is Rotten in Fettig. I submitted the book under the working title to Gival Press for its annual novel competition.
In early October, Gival Press announced the results of the national competition. The Trial of Leopold Plotkin, the working title, was selected as one of four finalists for the 2015 award. I appreciate this recognition.
