Every Time I Die singer Keith Buckley to release new novel

Monday, April 2, 2018 4:46 PM PT


Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley will soon release his second novel. Titled Watch, the book will be available in June via publisher Rare Bird Books and is now available for pre-order.

An abstract of the novel is as follows:

When John Harvey's watch stops working on the morning of February 3rd, 1987, he has an epiphany. It occurs to him that every personal trauma he is trying to forget has had one thing in common: they all occurred at some point on the face of that very watch. The loss of his job, the death of his child, Zola's suicide, all contained right there in that tiny circle of finite numbers. So he smashes the watch. Problem solved.

But when John steps out the door to make his daily trek to the local bar as a man newly freed from the tyrannies of time, he is met by a snowstorm that renders him completely blind, and a walk that should have taken just a few minutes begins to feel like years. Because as John Harvey wanders alone through the snow with no sun nor sign to guide him, the 28 year old misanthrope is confronted by the vivid manifestation of every ghost he has devoted his lonely life to avoiding. In the storm he is forced to finally accept the suffering he has been hiding from. In the storm he is forced to understand that the only thing worse than never truly seeing is never truly being seen. In the storm he is forced, for once, to watch.

Buckley released his first novel, Scale, in 2015.

Cool stuff for sure. Guessing will sell about 200 hard copies max due to the target demographic being glued to mobile devices and never buys books.

You know what's more interesting? You can just type V1 shutdown on 2018-03-31 in the captcha and it works

If the novel is half as good as the artwork on the cover, I think we are all in for a treat.

Real talk. This goober wishes he was Chuck Palahniuk but none of the ETID fans know how to read. Total misfire.

All comments from hardcore kids who wear glasses and swear to read yet none of them have ever read further than shit posting comments that they actually rub one out to but will never say anything in real life...to anyone. "Hi I text my friends I don't have while sitting at the dinner table."
