Letters To My Imaginary Friend Leticia coverAs longtime Beauty Is Imperfection readers might remember, I used to run a serial work on this blog called “Letters to My Imaginary Friend Leticia.” I promised one day that it would turn into a novel, and now it has. I’ve just released it on Amazon as a digital book, and hope to release it in paperback form in the upcoming months. It’s about a frustrated New York trade magazine writer who longs to be a poet and sends letters of his failures to his ideal woman.

The book’s description:

“He’s not a frustrated poet yet, but he’s working hard at it. A writer in 1990s New York suffering from delusions of literary grandeur ends up writing for a concrete and sewage trade publication. His ideals cannot be crushed, however, and they wrap themselves around a wraith-like feminine figure whose imagined perfection he hopes to one day live up to.”

I originally wrote some 26 entries for “Leticia” on this blog. To comply with the exclusivity requirement on Amazon’s KDP Select platform, I have taken down all but two of the original posts. (You can still read the first one here.) For the novel, I have added much to the original story, including a couple of recurring characters.

The cover art is, again, by my friend Corey Brian Sanders.
