New novel by L.L. Holt named Finalist for a 2017 national book prize

Invictus, a new novel about music, race, and redemption, has been named a Finalist for the annual Landmark Prize for Fiction. Homebound Publications made the announcement on February 14, 2017. This year's prize went to Mark Seiler for the novel, River's Child. L.L. Holt was identified as the first of two Finalists for the award.

Several publishers are currently considering Invictus, the story of a Black child born to a devious white musician and his long-suffering wife in late 18th century Germany.  Based largely on fact and the result of years of research in Europe and the U.S., Invictus explores what it means to be different, the power of music and genius, and the indomitable human spirit. Publication is expected during the 2017-18 publishing cycle.
