World’s First Laundromance “Heavy Load” by Biff Mitchell Now at Fictionwise

FREDERICTON, New Brunswick – July 25, 2005/ Send2Press Newswire/ -- “You could almost say that Fictionwise has done for ebooks what Gutenberg did for the popularity of reading,” said author Biff Mitchell whose novel “Heavy Load (a laundromance)” has just been picked up by Fictionwise. “Exposure through the world’s most prestigious distributor of ebooks will most certainly boost sales of the book,” said Mitchell.

“Sites like Fictionwise make it easy to find ebook titles,” said Mitchell. “They provide a clearing house for titles from a variety of publishers, including original titles published exclusively through Fictionwise. This makes it easy for readers to connect with their favorite e-writers and explore new ones.”

Originally published by Jacobyte Books in Australia in ebook and paperback formats “Heavy Load” has been well received by critics. Cynthia Penn in WordWeaving called it “a creative masterpiece.” Deborah Fisher in Tregolwyn Reviews recommends it to anyone who believes in “the unfashionable idea that ordinary, everyday life is worth observing.”

In “Heavy Load,” two men and a woman bring their laundry to the Washing Green laundromat on a Saturday morning. Each is at a turning point in their lives and, through as circle of interest that grows between them, they help give each other new direction in their lives. This is done without any of them speaking a word to each other during the entire story, which is narrated by the laundromat itself.

The laundromat is sentient, a story-teller that goes into the minds and bodies of its customers and watches the drama of each person endlessly re-enacting their lives from baby to adult. “The themes are appropriate for adult readers,” said Mitchell. “Because the stories are play-by-play enactments in which every detail it still intact, the language and action gets very gritty at times.”

“Heavy Load” is Mitchell’s second title at Fictionwise. His first, “The War Bug” (Double Dragon Publishing) was a best-seller at EPIC. Two novellas, “Smoke Break” and “The Baton,” published by Echelon Press will also be released at Fictionwise in the near future. This summer, Fictionwise will publish Mitchell’s first non-fiction book, “eMarketing Tools for Writers.”
