On Writing
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 2,980. Language: English. Published: July 27, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
Sharp and moving reflections and ruminations on the artistry and craft of writing, On Writing reveals an artist brutally frank about the drudgery of work and canny and uncompromising about the absurdities of life—and of art. It exposes an artist grounded in the visceral, whose work reverberates with his central ideal: “Go through it.”
Ashes
Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 2,880. Language: English. Published: July 27, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
Bestselling collection of poetry and prose about survival, loss, and love, beginning with the 2016 John Newlove Poetry Award poem, “defeated.” Ashes deals with a different pain and heals a different heartache. Lafleche takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them—because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
Shameless
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 10,960. Language: English. Published: July 27, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Sex & Relationships  » Men's sexuality, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
A collection of prose depicting depravity, written in the same brutal honesty we’ve come to expect from Lafleche. Shameless is direct attack on the volumes of lifeless politically correct nauseam that has somehow replaced writing as it once was. It’s a slap in the face to anyone who thinks they have a right not to be offended. It’s about time.
One Hundred Little Victories
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 31,300. Language: English. Published: July 27, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Politics & Current Affairs » Islamic militancy, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Islam / Rituals & Practice
One Hundred Little Victories is the anthem for freedom of religion in America. No religion in the modern world is as feared and misunderstood as Islam. It haunts the popular imagination as an extreme faith that promotes terrorism, authoritarian government, female oppression, and Civil War. In this vital narrative, Andrew Lafleche addresses this prejudiced view by offering an unapologetic account.
A Pardonable Offence
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 36,250. Language: English. Published: July 25, 2018. Categories: Fiction » Anthologies » Short stories - single author, Fiction » Literature » Literary
Filled with Andrew Lafleche’s remarkably unsettling interpretations of reality, this singular new short story collection is brimming with intensity accented by an unexpected dark humor. Appalling, thought-provoking, and entertaining, A Pardonable Offence is Andrew Lafleche claiming his voice: extreme and provocative. This collection will delight his growing number of fans and new readers alike.
No Diplomacy
Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 15,400. Language: English. Published: July 25, 2018. Categories: Nonfiction » Politics & Current Affairs » Current affairs, Nonfiction » Biography » Military biography
No Diplomacy is the antithesis to a superhero story. It’s one you can’t unread. Written by a former Canadian infantry soldier, the direct language used in this first person narrative subjects the reader to an uncomfortably vulnerable account of events which took place during the summer of 2010 near Panjwayi District, Afghanistan.
