Look Away Silence Press Release

PRLog (Press Release) – Jul 14, 2009 – Edward C. Patterson's latest novel, Look Away Silence, will be published. It is a romance set during the height of the AIDS crisis in the gay community and encapsulates the author's experiences in volunteer AIDS services during the 1990's. It is dedicated to the Hyacinth AIDS Foundation and the NAMES Project.

Look Away Silence:

Martin Powers wanted an ironing board for Christmas. Instead he got . . . Matthew Kieler, a non-returnable gift, but a gift that kept on giving. Chance encounters are sometimes the ones that most change our lives. He sold Matt a tie, but got more in the bargain — more than most people would want and more than anyone deserved. Although these lovers may not have had the pink American dream, they had it better than most, even as they faced a crisis that would change us all.

Look Away Silence is a romance set in the time of AIDS, when ignorance could spell trouble and often did. It encompasses the author’s experiences in volunteer community service and personal friendships during a tragic period in American history. The novel is dedicated to the Hyacinth AIDS Foundation, the NAMES Project and to the author’s own fallen angels. “Mothers, do not shun your children, because you never know how long you have to revel in them.”

New Review on Turning Idolater

Got a nice 4-star review for Turning Idolater ($ .99 on the Kindle) from Lila Pinord.

"Never a Dull Moment

Mr. Patterson defines his characters so well, we feel we know them personally. Phillip Flaxen was the Golden Boy of his job as an Internet Stripper who made dates on the side. This job barely kept him in lunch money and he was lucky to eat once a day! Then he meets a fascinating older man who truly loves him and he helps change Phillip's lifestyle. He acquires a decent job that pays better and he loves working with rare books. His ex-roommate, his friend "Sprakie" who took him in during the worst time of his life is quite the character too. His favorite phrase, "Jesus Marie", is enough to drive his friends up the wall. The who-dunnit that winds its way throughout the story is captivating, and we never know who the culprit is until the very end. There's never a dull moment in this book! Good job, Mr. Patterson. Herman Melville and Charles Dickens would be proud."
