Immortal Works releases a new novel by J.D. Spero, Boy On Hold. Available 8/13/2019


Salt Lake City, Utah, August 13, 2019 /PressReleasePing/ - Immortal Works Press is proud to announce the release of Boy On Hold by J.D. Spero. Boy On Hold was inspired by an experience J.D. had with her son, Adam. “One night before bed, my little guy begged to go out in the backyard to find a hedgehog. Seeing all the naive eagerness in his huge hazel eyes, we couldn't say no. Flashlight in hand, he headed out the back door in his bare feet and favorite green pajamas. As I watched him from my kitchen, I noticed my neighbors' windows just beyond our fence. It being so dark outside, their windows were like movie screens. It struck me how clearly I could see inside their homes and how they must be able to see into mine. And there was my Adam with his flashlight, panning our backyard with an innocent hope to find himself a pet.

And the story idea hit…”

About Boy On Hold:

Cabbage Night, 1991. The traditional night of pranks takes a disturbing turn when a violent crime rocks a small Adirondack town. Even more so when the only witness is a seven-year-old boy. Hen Trout, who had hoped to catch a pet hedgehog that night, instead sees his beloved Miss Sally become a victim.

Single mom Marcella Trout is blindsided when Tyler, her seventeen-year-old, is arrested for the very crime Hen witnessed. Now Tyler's eerie mood swings seem dark and frightening and rooted in a family history Marcella has desperately tried to bury. As the criminal investigation churns on, the tenuous fabric of the Trout family begins to unravel...and even Hen begins to question the truth.
