Calderdale-based author Cliff James is set to launch his new novel, Of Bodies Changed.
The book, described as a ‘gay Wuthering Heights in the modern world’ is a gothic romance which tells the story of sexually liberated pagans, environmental warriors and sadistic priests.
After 14 years and 14 rejections, Cliff is delighted that his dream to see the book reach publication has been fulfilled.
He said: “After so long, it feels totally surreal to actually have this novel published and on sale in bookshops. It feels like a dream.”
The book will be launched at Sowerby Bridge’s Dandelion and Burdock restaurant on August 10, from 5-7pm.
