Announcement: "Puppet Boy" - A New Novel from Christian Baines

September 25, 2014 Announcement: New Title from Christian Baines

Bold Strokes Books is pleased to announce the acquisition of Christian Baines's new novel, Puppet Boy, scheduled for release in 2015 from Bold Strokes Liberty Editions.

Puppet Boy - Coming in 2015

A school in turmoil over its senior play, a sly career as a teenage gigolo, an unpredictable girlfriend with damage of her own, and a dangerous housebreaker tied up downstairs. Any of these would make a great plot for budding filmmaker Eric’s first movie.

Unfortunately, they’re his real life.

When Julien, a handsome wannabe actor, transfers to Eric’s class, he’s a distraction, a rival, and one complication too many. Yet Eric can’t stop thinking about him. Helped by Eric’s girlfriend, Mary, they embark on a project that dangerously crosses the line between filmmaking and reality. As the boys become close, Eric soon wants to cross other lines entirely. Does Julien feel the same way, or is Eric being used on the gleefully twisted path to fame?
