Jim (myrmidude) | 5 comments Now I'm Here by Jim Provenzano

Hi, folks!

My sixth novel, 'Now I'm Here' brings a piano prodigy and a pumpkin farmer together on their first date to a Queen concert. Separated then reunited, they build a life together.

Advance praise:

“Here is a novel of such sweep and breadth that to call it simply a love story is inadequate, even while the love of David and Joshua at the heart of the book resonates so deeply that I could not stop reading their tale. Provenzano is one of our masters; like his character Joshua he is a kind of musician. The instrument he plays on is the heart, and the story of these men rings true for all of us who lived through these years.”
– Jim Grimsley, author of Dream Boy and Winter Birds

"Jim Provenzano has again created characters that a reader can’t help but fall in love with. This is an epic story, a tale as captivating as a favorite piece of music.”
– Mark Abramson, author of Minnesota Boy

“A haunting page turner; Provenzano fearlessly navigates, with wit, unflinching candor and a detective’s tenacity, that deepest mystery: first love, with all its euphoria, madness and wreckage. Gorgeously written, Now I’m Here stands alongside the best of Edmund White and Andrew Holleran. I could spend a year with each sentence.”
- Adam Tendler, pianist, composer, author of 88x50

It's also getting some great advance reviews!

It'll be out on Kindle, Nook and Kobo August 29.
Paperback's out September 20.

Events in San Francisco and West Hollywood include live music of Queen.

My previous YA novels, Every Time I Think of You (Lambda Literary Award winner), its sequel Message of Love (a Lammy Finalist), and my first novel PINS, are popular YA novels.
