Coming of age hasn't gotten any easier since
Juliet first admonished Romeo
not to swear his love for her on the
Inconstant Moon.

"Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose,"
or,
"the more things change, the more they stay the same."

In today's digital world, the students at Christie University share the same issues of trust that Shakespeare's immortal lovers faced. And in the 21st century here and now, when one student is brutally attacked on campus, all illusions of safety and invulnerability are shattered.

It all comes down to the eternal question:

Who can you trust?

From the Author:

Although the flavour of my own college years runs through my debut novel, Inconstant Moon is in no way autobiographical.  Instead of the traditional protagonist/antagonists, my "main character" is the ensemble of college students dealing with the upheavals caused by a campus rape.  Although themes of trust and perception tend to run through my fiction, in many ways  Inconstant Moon is atypical.  It is certainly more of a literary novel than I am usually inclined to write.

The story is set in the digital world of the present, and I had a lot of fun weaving elements of today's interactive social media through the lives of my students.  While a traditional sequel is unlikely, I have become quite attached to my characters, so there is a very real possibility that at least some of them will appear in my future work.

Inconstant Moon was my first attempt at writing a novel since the one I didn't quite finish in the ninth grade; it serves as the debut of my own publishing imprint,  Libreleft Books.

One lesson learned through my first adventure in self publishing was the importance of doing an online search before selecting a title.  Inconstant Moon comes from one of my favourite speeches in Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet

The problem in choosing this title is that science fiction writer Larry Niven used the same title for a short story.  And not just any short story, but one that won the prestigious Hugo Award.  If that wasn't bad enough, a collection of his short stories was later released under the same title.  Titles are not copyrightable, but when a new novel shares the title of an established book, it becomes much harder for the the new book to get traction with search engines.  It is far better to choose a unique or unusual title to make your work more easily found online.

From the Inside Flap:

University Life...
is about standing on your own two feet.
Following your dreams.
Learning about life and love.
It's supposed to be safe.
But sometimes it's not.

"INCONSTANT MOON

. . . builds with great intensity
toward a mystery that must be solved.
The answers lie in understanding
adult responsibility and knowing
things aren't always as they appear."
                      -- Debbi Mack
  New York Times bestselling author of
IDENTITY CRISIS and LEAST WANTED
