Science Fiction

Date Published: December 15, 2020

Publisher: FyreSyde Publishing

In the ten years since John Malley lost his wife and daughter, he has slowly faded into obscurity in a rural Pennsylvania town. He spends his days at the local bar and tries to numb the pain of his loss. That is, until Ted’s Dead Rose Tavern becomes the home of the biggest mass killing in the history of the town. John, the lone survivor of the killing-spree, is forced on the run. He heads north where he hopes to hide out at his brother’s house.

Meanwhile, in New York City, young Melanie Parker investigates a disturbing new trend she discovered online. From what she has learned, metallic black bands worn along the forearm are responsible for some form of mind control. Skeptical of this theory, Melanie embarks on a night time excursion that places her in the middle of a riot in the middle of the city. Melanie fights for her life as chaos spreads throughout the city.

As John witnesses the events in New York, he is compelled to take action. But once in the city, John is forced to confront his past.


What is the hardest part of writing your books?
Staying consistent. I tend to write in spurts. When I can stay consistent my writing tends to flow better.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?

It changes with my mood. Depending on the day I might be listening to Elton John or maybe Metallica. It really just depends. Lately, I’ve been listening to Led Zepplin’s “No Quarter” a lot. 


Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

My wife and family are my first go to, after them there are a few other people with whom I can share early versions of my work. 


What book are you reading now?

I’m reading Dune. 


How did you start your writing career?

After graduating college, I was working in a factory and pretty distant from the literary world. But I remember listening to a podcast a number of years ago now, and being blown away by the content- they were talking about how social media and technology in general impacts the way we think. That podcast inspired me to write a short story and from there A Sweet, Soft Glow was born. I was always a writer but I had sort of drifted away from it prior to that podcast.


Tell us about your next release.

I’m working on something really different and I am really excited about the way it’s going. All I can say right now is that I am venturing into the world of conspiracy theories and trying my hand at a little romance. 

About the Author

Josh Magnotta has been a resident of northern Pennsylvania for most of his life. Throughout his early life and teenage years he was an avid writer but during college drifted away from the passion as work and other priorities took precedence. In 2014 he graduated from college and soon began working a swing shift in a factory. It was here, during off shifts where Josh would read during the night to stay awake, that his passion for writing was rekindled. After leaving the factory-life behind Josh went back to college and began work on his first novel, A Sweet, Soft Glow. He has since been writing ever since.
