    The Dropper by Ron McLarty

    "This book is filled with rich pleasures and textures — it reminded me of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. I highly recommend it."
    — Stephen King


    New Book Announced Today!
    The Dropper
    by Ron McLarty



    Hi Folks!

    Today we're pleased to announce The Dropper by Ron McLarty, a brand new signed Limited Edition hardcover with a print run of just 350 copies for the Limited Edition and just 52 copies for the Deluxe Lettered Edition! And because we were so blown away by this book, there will also be a trade hardcover edition for retailers and bookstores!

    The Dropper
    by Ron McLarty

    Featuring Cover Artwork by Les Edwards

    About the Book:
    Some say it's Death, Some say it's darkness, I say it's a game of light...

    Gutsy 17-year-old Albert "Shoe" Horn is an apprentice plumber and part-time boxer in England in 1922, but when his mother dies, he finds himself responsible for an abusive, alcoholic father and a younger brother with special needs.


    This marvelous novel follows the indomitable Shoe's day-to-day survival with poetic grit, cynical genius, respect, and deep affection as he navigates a world full of very real characters: the gentle giant McAvy, his slave-driving boss, the Irish louts that resurrect his temper, the tempting ladies who seek him out, his hilarious plumbing clients, and the formidable “Dropper,” who Shoe fears will take away the most true thing in his life, his brother.

    Find out for yourself why Stephen King proclaimed "The Dropper avoids sentimentality, but not sentiment; Shoe and his brother Bobby live and breathe" when this novel is published as a Cemetery Dance Publications exclusive next year.

      Sounds great!!! I think it's fantastic that CD is publishing titles outside of their normal focus. Bravo!

                Checked on amazon, they don't have the page counted listed either.

                  It's not designed yet, but 350 or so pages would be my guess based on the manuscript!

                    Awesome thanks for the reply. Like someone else said I wanted to give kudos to CD for publishing this book.

                    P.S. How are the sales for this title going?

                              I listened to the audio version of this book and it is tremendous. This will be my first letterd edition from CD. I'll probably have a lettered or two in the Dark Regions grab bag I ordered first, so technically, those will be my first.
