Share Article

Exciting new author, Randy Kieffer, uses his own experience as a factory worker of over twelve years to give you a rugged and honest portrayal of middle-class life and addiction.

How would you feel if you were told that your job is being moved out of the country, and that soon you would be unemployed?

In "Factory" (978-0-9828410-0-6, Fiction, Trade Paperback, 252pp, 5.25” x 8”) Randy Kieffer puts you in the minds of four blue-collar factory workers as each reaches their breaking point, while navigating through one day in a plant shutdown.

As all across America has seen the closing of several manufacturing factories, including the author's hometown area of Central New York; Carrier Corp., Marsellus Casket Co., Syracuse China, and soon New Process Gear, readers can relate to the characters fears and questions as to why they are in this position and what they are going to do.

Complicating matters is the implications of addiction and the characters' indecision of their future, once they leave the factory behind. As the day wears on, they come to some surprising revelations about their past, and just who is to blame for their current situation.

Randy Kieffer was born 1979, in Syracuse, NY. He is currently employed at New Process Gear. His ten-plus years at the factory has allowed him to lend a gritty realism and air of authenticity to this story. Randy wrote for the Syracuse Post Standard as a Community Critic (May 08-Feb 09) and credits the position for reigniting his passion to write. He is currently working on his next novel, "Stuart, The Devil."

Phantom Publishing is proud to present, "Factory," which is currently available in paperback form through,, and is available for Nook and Kindle.
