New Orleans — October 5th, 2023 — Author and storyteller Andrew H.

Invisible Sun book by Andrew H. Housley

Invisible Sun follows the story of Ian, who stands on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans, grappling with the devastating suicide of his brother, Hugo. As Ian unravels the reasons behind his brother's tragic decision, he finds himself questioning his beliefs and the very fabric of reality itself.

"I wanted to push the boundaries of civility and thrust the impact of mental health into the conversation in a simple, unfiltered way -- not to tuck it away or marginalize it in whispers and innuendo. As a society, we have been doing that for far too long," says Housley.

SPR Editorial Review hailed it as "a powerful, soul-baring novel that will be intimately relatable." Early praise comes from literary critics. Readers' Favorite describes this absorbing narrative as "a tough read in the best possible way, blurring the lines between reality and illusion, leaving readers enthralled."

"Now more than ever, people are suffering with depression, isolation, and idealizations of suicide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2000 and 2021, suicide rates surged by around 36%, resulting in 48,183 deaths in 2021, equivalent to nearly one death every 11 minutes. My job as a storyteller is to invite or gently drag readers into these places so as to understand them better. Change begins with understanding. Sometimes, all someone needs is a bit of understanding."

Available at Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Amazon.
