Welcome of the 21st Century, etc.
Good news. My play Liberation, published by Original Works Publishing, is now available electronically through Amazon. Kindles to conquer! You now can easily pick up my happy-go-lucky, laugh-a-minute play about the Bosnian War. Buy it for your mom.
(Note: the latter in intended as gallows humor...which characterizes the play, actually. It's deadly serious stuff, but, I think, works. It definitely seems to pack a punch. People saw it, cried, walked out of the theatre holding hands. Critics praised it, etc. It's for artistically committed theatres with nerve and passion...so buy it for your local, artistically committed thatre with nerve and passion.)
In short, I'm quite pleased about this. Thanks, Original Works. You can also license performances through them.
