Elevator Pitch: Summer Complex

First off, thank you to Lish Wells and TwinTales for giving me a like for my Eyes of Excruciation elevator pitch!  I’m thrilled that you all found my pitch interesting. I’m also grateful to mad1642, writingthedreamblog, and Sarahhylockwood for visiting my blog and deciding to follow my young adult adventures. I can promise you that I will continue to write thoughtful and engaging posts to the best of my abilities!

Next up, I present my elevator pitch for Summer Complex, my second full-length YA semi-autobiographical book [with a little bit of fiction sprinkled in for good measures (is that too long of a genre??)] I’m proud to say that I wrote the first draft of this manuscript over the summer of 2012, when I was feeling lost and unsure about my next step in life after having graduated from college. I’m happy to say that I wasn’t alone in my perplexing summer; the friends who helped me ride it out populate the pages of this manuscript, albeit with aliases. This story is for them as much as it is for me.

Summer Complex


Richard-Michael Calzada

Recent engineering graduate Tyler Morris, embittered by a prolonged breakup and string of dead-end job applications, befriends five uniquely screwed up but sincere residents of Meadow Rivers apartment complex, all of whom help Tyler find himself in the barren West Texas town of Presidio Plains.
