The Mason Jar Press: Novella Tour Kick-Off!

The Mason Jar Press Novella series is coming out Tuesday, July 16th, and we’re celebrating their release with a tour kick-off at Tattooed Mom!

Celebrate the release of three novellas from three amazing writers: The Couples by Nicole Callihan, Manhunt by Jaime Fountaine (host of the popular TMOMs literary series Tire Fire), and All Friends are Necessary by Tomas Moniz (all Mason Jar Press, 2019). Chosen during an open submission period out of hundreds of submissions, these thematically linked pieces speak to one another while containing a strength and style all their own.
THE COUPLES, by Nicole Callihan, finds the protagonist at a crossroads in her marriage and her family life, remembering and reexperiencing her first relationship and all the damage her youth imparted upon her.

Tomas Moniz’s ALL FRIENDS ARE NECESSARY follows a young man in San Francisco as he navigates love, addiction, and the struggles of early adulthood on his way to maturity and independence.

In Jaime Fountaine’s MANHUNT, a girl spends the summer she’s thirteen negotiating a place for herself in her body, her neighborhood, her family, and the world.

You can purchase these titles from Mason Jar Press.

Mason Jar Press is an independent press based out of beautiful Baltimore, MD. They specialize in full-length publications and handmade, limited edition chapbooks by established as well as emerging writers. If you enjoy strong, straight-forward poetry and prose that’s just a little off, then they’ve got something for you.
