Announcing Release of "The One Apart" - a breakthrough novel by Justine Avery

Los Angeles, CA – November 30, 2017 – Justine Avery is pleased to announce the release of The One Apart, her debut novel. "From considerations of life purpose and evil to the realization that death is not a limitation or an end, but affords new beginnings, readers who follow Tres on his journey will find The One Apart an outstanding, well-detailed story that is hard to put down, evocative, thought-provoking, and filled with surprises and hope. ... The One Apart is very highly recommended ... expect far more insight from this read than most, tempered with a purposeful saga to keep readers thoroughly engrossed to the end." --Midwest Book Review.
Justine Avery is known for being "A master of grabbing the reader and pulling them into the story. ... Her writing is off-the-wall ... and always, ALWAYS spellbinding." --The Wishing Shelf Independent Book Awards UK.
In The One Apart, we join Tres as he is born into the world with complete self-awareness and knowledge that seems to come from some other life. As Tres becomes Aaron, a modern young man with family and friends, he comes to know of the true nature of existence and of a strange growing threat to all things. 
This novel offers a very new and unusually mystical take on the idea that our reality is only the tip of the iceberg. It stretches the length of Tres/Aaron’s life, chronicling his childhood, teenage years, and young adulthood, with all the complex experiences that are a part of those periods of life. 
"The story itself is fascinating... I was caught from page one, and the pace never slowed ... a unique perspective on the subject of what it is to be human, to grow up, and what comes after," said Rebecca Demarest for Manhattan Book Review (4 stars).
The Kindle Edition of The One Apart is available starting December 4, 2017 Amazon and other online booksellers.
"A fascinatingly intricate narrative that will captivate readers from beginning to end ... a riveting chronicle of events ... Avery draws the reader in to learn and discover more ... Readers of any age, from teenagers to those more seasoned, will appreciate the masterful narrative that Justine Avery has superbly developed ... The One Apart easily garners a five-star rating and will divulge more insight and perception each time readers explore its pages," said Jessica Tingling for Seattle Book Review (5 stars).

About Justine Avery
Justine Avery is an award-winning author of stories large and small for all. Born in the American Midwest and raised all over the world, she is inherently an explorer, duly fascinated by everything around her and excitedly noting the stories that abound all around. As an avid reader of all genres, she weaves her own stories among them all. She has a predilection for writing speculative fiction and story twists and surprises she can’t even predict herself.

Avery has either lived in or explored all 50 states of the union, over 36 countries, and all but one continent; she lost count after moving 30-some times before the age of 20. She’s intentionally jumped out of airplanes and off the highest bungee jump in New Zealand, scuba dived unintentionally with sharks, designed websites, intranets, and technical manuals, bartered with indigenous Panamanians, welded automobile frames, observed at the Bujinkan Hombu Dojo in Noba, Japan, and masterminded prosperous internet businesses—to name a few adventures. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree that life has never required, and at age 28, she sold everything she owned and quit corporate life—and her final “job”—to freelance and travel the world as she always dreamed of. And she’s never looked back.

Aside from her native English, Avery speaks a bit of Japanese and a bit more Spanish, her accent is an ever-evolving mixture of Midwestern American with notes of the Deep South and indiscriminate British vocabulary and rhythm, and she says “eh”—like the Kiwis, not the Canadians. She currently lives near Los Angeles with her husband, British film director Devon Avery, and their three adopted children: Becks, Sam, and Lia. She writes from wherever her curiosity takes her.

Avery loves to connect with fellow readers and creatives, explorers and imaginers, and cordially invites you to say “hello”—or konnichiwa.
