A Book of Revelations

Eight Short Stories Where Nothing Is As It Seems.
New from HomePort Press

Life is all about taking risks. A Book of Revelations transports the reader from Private Quarters, where a young musician must negotiate the competing demands of two strong-willed women, to a luxurious yacht in the Caribbean, where an embittered detective finds himself rejecting his Last Chance at love. These eight unique stories are about the instant we must roll the dice or succumb to the status quo. Burch’s vivid and quirky characters—courageous and sometimes campy dwellers in a world beyond the mainstream—will engage, amuse, and compel you with their richly complex revelations.

“Through the quirks and musicality of his vivid characters, Burch enthralls you right up to the moment of revelation. You won’t regret spending time in A Book of Revelations.”
