Here's the blurb:
A labyrinth of half-remembered Parisian streets, a jaded artist obsessed with black oblongs, a troubled would-be writer, a book, a painting… Joseph Kenspeckle’s world of paper and ink is thrown into heaps when he finally lands a deal for his magnum opus. But why does his past haunt him, why does everyone seem to be keeping secrets, and what strange power do Oliver Nothing’s abstract shapes hold? As Joseph feels himself becoming a cog in an unstoppable machine, he struggles to hold on to the one thing that has kept him going all along – but something is looming to send him over the edge…
Nothing’s Oblong is a darkly comic look at obsession, fate, and one man’s fight to make sense of it.

For those who may be interested, it was influenced by reading Kafka, BS Johnson, and probably quite of other decidedly un-literary stuff that I can't recall...
It would warm both my cockles and my wallet (both in need of some warming right now, I can tell you) if some of you would make this small purchase – If you do, please feel free to spread the word and leave a review (it's on Goodreads as well).
Currently NO is my only available novel, but I am working on two more, and have some more short stories due in print in the summer. Things other than writing have taken priority for too long, so now I'm trying to get back on the literary wagon again. I'm sure you know the feeling.
