Muscatine, IA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2013 -- For most, life has brought tragedy. For those yet to experience it, how they will ultimately react is a frequent topic of thought. In his compelling and hard-hitting new novel, author Jose A Gomez Jr captures this spirit with perfect clarity and timeless appeal.
Though it boasts a somewhat tragic narrative, ‘The Meaning of Life’ is leaving readers around the world feeling richly invigorated, uplifted and inspired to question their own beliefs and thoughts.
The story of a boy who wonders about life throughout his childhood, then grows up to experience a slew of tragedies, and finally embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
As the author explains, his novel is positively affecting each and every reader.
“Everyone has been through something tragic, even on a small scale. The few who haven’t will wonder how they would react to encountering something tragic,” says Gomez,
Continuing, “Others just sit and wonder about life or religion, as I always have. I wrote this story from deep in my heart based on events I’ve encountered. I am not a classically trained Author, but the people I have reached out to with this story have been touched very deeply, it made me want to chase this dream.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a consistent string of rave reviews.
While he is busy marketing his first book, Gomez also remains focused on his future works.
“I’ve since written and self-published two more stories, with countless more also at various stages of the writing process. Each book is entirely different, unique and hits on a different aspect of our lives. This true-to-life fiction is growing in popularity as people begin to use reading to learn more about their lives and grow into who they really want to be,” he adds.
