October was a month full of fantastic pitch events on Twitter, during which we were able to discover some amazing debut authors. Among them is Nick Mancuso, whose debt novel Fever, was recently acquired by Magnolia Press. Found during #PitDark, Mancuso’s domestic noir tackles drug addiction, domestic abuse, and the melancholy and monotony of affluent suburbia in a surprisingly fresh way. Taking place over the time period of four short weeks, Fever is a captivating read that will appeal to fans of Edan Leupucki’s Woman No. 17 and She Was the Quiet One by Michele Campbell.
Nick Mancuso is a writer and essayist based in New England. His essays and short stories have appeared in Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, The Literary Nest, Quail Bell Literary Magazine, Spry Literary Journal, the Anthropoid Collective, the Garbanzo Literary Journal, Gravel, and The Huffington Post. He is presently at work on a variety of short fiction, essays, and a novel.
Nick holds a double Bachelor of Arts in Literary and Cultural Studies, and Politics and Law from Bryant University, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Fairfield University. He presently lives on the rocky coast of southern Maine with his wife and dog.
