(PRWEB) September 10, 2014
Every once in while a new literary voice appears, unheralded, unexpected. With Pixel Hall Press's publication of her debut book of fiction -- "Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories" -- Nancy Christie has suddenly become such an acclaimed author. As reviewer Suzy Wilson said, “Nancy Christie seems to have the knack of pulling off the perfect short story.”
About "Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories"
"Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories" is a "masterful collection" of 18 short stories that "takes you on a journey through the human condition." Each one offers lyrical, poignant glimpses into the lives and souls of individuals who face situations for which they are emotionally or mentally unprepared. Unable or unwilling to seize control over their lives, they rely instead on coping methods that range from the passive ("The Healer") and the aggressive ("The Clock") to the humorous ("Traveling Left of Center") and hopeful ("Skating on Thin Ice"). But the outcomes may not be what they anticipated or desired. Will they have time to correct their course or will they crash?
Complimentary Short Story Available
Readers are invited to see for themselves what the critics are raving about. Pixel Hall Press is offering a complimentary short story -- "Annabelle"-- one of the 18 stories in this collection.
"Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories is now available in a quality paperback edition or as an eBook (in all formats) from all bookstores, including Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, as well as local independent bookstores.

About Pixel Hall Press
Pixel Hall Press is a relatively new, old-fashioned small publishing house whose focus is on discovering literary gems and great stories that might otherwise be overlooked. Our mission is to publish books that energize the imagination and intrigue the mind, and to be a conduit between readers and provocative, stimulating, talented authors.
In this era of digital technology, Wall Street involvement and merger mania, many mainstream publishers
seem to have lost sight of core principles and the purpose of publishing. At the other end of the spectrum is
the veritable avalanche of self-published books that are notoriously uneven in quality. Small boutique
imprints like Pixel Hall Press are reclaiming the heart and soul of publishing by reviving the idea that a
publisher's raison d'être is finding and nurturing great writers, and to provide readers with beautiful,
meaningful, truly enjoyable books.
