Explore the Exotic Urban Underbelly of the Sunbelt South in The Skin Artist
The morning Bill Becker awakes to find the butterfly tattoo, its wings poised for flight upon his chest, he is aroused and terrified by the itch of new possibilities—and addictions, including Lucy, the tattooed dancer who leads him on a quest for self-understanding. Both Lucy and Bill wrap themselves in new skins of ink, wrought by the same artist, a “shaman” who convinces them that every design will alter their futures.

Exiled from his corporate life and from the failed marriage he left behind in a gated community, Bill journeys through the dark side of Charlotte, North Carolina, where he meets con artists and displaced hillbillies, each of them seeking transformation in the Queen City. Ultimately, Bill confronts the necessity to leave the city in search of his rural roots. There he must come to terms with his estranged family and with the skin he shed many years ago.

Get your copy of The Skin Artist on May 7.

Book release party will be held at The Green Toad Bookstore (198 Main St, Oneonta, New York 13820) on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at 5:30pm. Free and open to the public.
