Boston, MA, Friday – September 16, 2011 — Blue Mustang Press ( http://www.BlueMustangPress.com ) is pleased to announce Robin Stratton's much anticipated new novel, "On Air" ($14.95 178 pp), is now widely available. During the 1980s protagonist Eric Storm was Boston's hottest radio personality. But it's 2001 and Eric is a full-grown beagle heavier, divorced, and out of work. Complicating matters is Eric's mother. She's getting older and a sudden turn of bad health frightens the unprepared and out of work DJ. Eric's whole world is turned on end when Ma's diary reveals a shocking truth about a life Eric thought he had all the answers for.

Stratton's story deftly resonates with those approaching 50 years of age and who may suddenly find themselves re-examining their lives, their worth and the role friends and family play when faced when life throws them curveball after curveball. Woven into this poignant and touchingly humorous story is the city of Boston and how its community dealt with the questions and doubts raised by 9-11. Stratton skillfully challenges each of us to ask ourselves, "What really matters…and what are we doing about it?"

Robin Stratton is a writing coach in the Boston area, director of the The Newton Writers and Poets Center, editor of "Boston Literary Magazine", and author of "Dealing With Men, Interference from an Unwitting Species & Other Poems", and "The Revision Process – A Guide for Those Weeks, Months or Years Between Your First Draft and Your Last". Her fiction has appeared in "Word Riot", "Poor Richard's Almanac(k)", "Antithesis Common", "Chick Flicks", "63 Channels", "Blink-Ink", "Pig in a Poke", "Shoots and Vines" and many others.
