Literary Agents: Welcome Aboard!

TRACKS, a novel in stories, is in search of a literary agent.

TRACKS takes place on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago. Each story is told from the perspective of a passenger on the train.

The stories stand alone, but become stronger when linked together. A secondary character in one story becomes the main character in another. Some stories offer new insights on others. The stories look at the decisions each character faces and how those decisions, as well as each character's interactions with the other passengers, alter the path ahead and cast past experiences and choices in a new light.

TRACKS is similar in nature to Joan Silber's National Book Award finalist Ideas of Heaven: a ring of stories and Kate Walbert's Our Kind. It has alwo been compared to Alice Munro's Runaway and Adam Haslett's You Are Not a Stranger Here. The author's writing style has been compared to that of Michael Cunningham and T.C. Boyle.

TRACKS has garnered promising feedback from a professional workshop and a number of serious readers. It was a semi finalist in the Simon and Schuster - Borders - Gather sponsored First Chapters Writing Competition -- one of the top 20 out of 2,675 novel entries.

Excerpts from TRACKS have been published in literary journals and anthologies, featured at The Baltimore Book Festival, read on National Public Radio, and have won awards. These excertps have been enjoyed by thousands of readers and listeners.

After a year of revisions, and a good bit of success, TRACKS is polished and ready to submit to literary agents and publishers. The author is ready to move full-steam ahead in promoting his book once it is published.

Contact author Eric D. Goodman to learn more about TRACKS and to request the manuscript. Just email him at
