We’re proud to announce our upcoming book by Michael Loyd Gray. Michael was one of our Sol Books Prose Series a few years back with his novel Well Deserved, and his new novel, King Biscuit, will help us launch our sister imprint, Tempest Books, books for young adults.
In King Biscuit, Michael Loyd Gray returns once again to his fictional burg of tiny Argus, Illinois, (the setting of his novels Well Deserved and Not Famous Anymore), to tell a coming of age story set in 1966. With the Vietnam War hovering in the background. Seventeen-year-old Billy Ray Fleener, frustrated by the narrow confines of Argus, seeks adventure and a look at the wider world in a novel that puts him on a collision course with the famous as well as infamous.
