Two years ago, Lodi resident Jeffrey Littorno made his dream come true by self-publishing his first novel entitled Bloom’s Desk. The horror novel rose to number 9 in its Amazon category.

Littorno’s second work Soul Hostage is due for release on February 18th and will be available online through www.Smashwords.com and www.CreateSpace.com as either an ebook or printed version. The title will also be available for order from bookstores.

The author describes Soul Hostage as a dark tale which raises some questions as to the nature of evil. Specifically, the novel tells the story of two small-time criminals who take a hostage during a robbery. This captive soon turns out to be much more than expected and holds the key to making all of their dreams come true. But as things begin to spin out of control, it becomes clear that nothing is as simple as it first appeared,and they may literally be on the road to damnation.

Jeffrey Littorno spent several years as an English teacher in the United States before taking his teaching skills to other countries including Kuwait, Australia, and South Korea. He now lives in Northern California with his wife GyeYeol and a growing number of cats. When not working on his next novel, Littorno teaches prison inmates in Folsom, California. Jeffrey Littorno is the author of Bloom's Desk, Soul Hostage, and the upcoming Stone Cold.

Littorno commented: From a young age, I have been an avid writer. However, there always seemed to be reasons for not devoting myself to it. Over the last few years, I have run out of excuses for not spending more time on my writing. Having completed one novel, starting others was much easier. These days, I am again excited about my writing and look forward to completing many more novels.
