Small Town Author Realizes Big Dreams

West Grey writer celebrates publication: a culmination of passion and sheer will

Alanna Rusnak might look like the average working mom, mini-van and all, but don’t be fooled; she is an assertive go-getter with a professional full-length literary work officially launching on June 23, 2017 in Durham, Ontario in the Municipality of West Grey. 
The Church in the Wildwood tackles poignant and contemporary themes with poetic refinement. Presenting the multi-dimensional narrative of a young man on a gruelling path from tragedy to hope, Rusnak has skillfully enacted on paper the depths and intensities of the human condition. 
“Although harsh,” says one Amazon reviewer, “the story is depicted through a fresh lens of redemption and hope, reminiscent of the innocence conveyed in the book Room by Emma Donoghue. While the plot line is engaging, the personal growth of each character is the true focal point of the book. The reader is taken on a journey from a place of judgement to compassion as the story unfolds, reminding us that…it is wrong to condemn someone without walking a mile in their shoes. We each need a Church in the Wildwood where we can forgive the past and say goodbye to the memories and relics that haunt us.”
Persevering against the brick wall of the publishing world by sheer force of will, Rusnak has built up a faithful readership that recognizes her talent and encourages her forward momentum. Her quiet nature, combined with a marketing and advertising budget of zero, make it all the more fascinating that almost 500 people have added The Church in the Wildwood on Goodreads. This industrious woman is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Canadian literary arts magazine Blank Spaces
The book launch is a great opportunity to support a local entrepreneur and celebrate a literary success story. Learn more at Rusnak is available for radio, tv, and print or digital interviews, guest blogging, and readings.
The Church in the Wildwood is available in paperback from Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and Ebooks are available for Kindle or Kobo and through Chapters/Indigo.
