Crossed Genres to publish Kelly Jennings’ Broken Slate

Jan 24th, 2010 | By | Category: News & Announcements

Crossed Genres is excited to announce that we will publish Kelly Jennings’ novel Broken Slate.

Raised in New Orleans, Kelly Jennings teaches writing and literature at the University of Fort Smith-Arkansas. She is partway through a five-book series about Martin Eduardo and the contract labor revolution on Julian. The first book, Martin’s War, is due out with Verb Noire press early in 2010. A short story set in the same universe, Lunch Money, was published in issue 13 of Crossed Genres.

A prequel to Martin’s War, Broken Slate explores a time before the revolution, when Martin was a contract – little better than a slave. In this tense and personal story, Martin is forced to confront the reality that he has greater responsibilities than to himself.

Broken Slate will be serialized for subscribers on the Crossed Genres website beginning in July 2010. After the serialization is complete, Crossed Genres will publish Broken Slate in its entirety.
