Milton publisher's latest authors span both coasts

June 19, 2019

Devil’s Party Press of Milton has released two new feature-length novels.

“Mosquitoes and Men,” a Southern Gothic novel by Milton resident Mark Alan Polo, was published June 10. The 260-page softcover is centered around the death of a wealthy father and husband in South Carolina, and the long-guarded secrets revealed during the viewing.

Polo, a graduate of the New York School of Interior Design, is an award-winning interior designer and owner of the Urban Dweller. Polo's clients include celebrities and politicians, and he also works with the Village Improvement Association of Rehoboth Beach Designer Show House. Polo’s VIA design work includes the living room of the 2018 show house in The Pines neighborhood of Rehoboth. Polo is a frequent contributor to Devil’s Party Press anthologies, including his 2018 “Equinox and Suspicious Activity.” “Mosquitoes and Men” is his first full-length novel.

Released April 22, “Charlotte” is a cozy murder mystery by Stan Charnofsky.

A resident of Northridge, Calif., and a professor of psychology at California State University in Northridge, Charnofsky has written several books across a lengthy career that includes playing ball for the New York Yankees farm system during the 1950s and teaching for more than 50 years.

Set in New Hope, Pa., the plot of “Charlotte” involves a mysterious death at a retirement home, and the title character’s attempt to identify the killer. A 207-page softcover, “Charlotte” is Charnofsky’s first novel, part of a planned series with Devil's Party Press.

Both titles are available at select bookstores as well as online retailers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the Devil's Party Press online store.
