In-Between Days

In-Between Days

Purgatory wasn’t exactly where Owen thought he’d end up, but sometimes you don’t quite get it right on the first go-round. Owen has spent the last twelve years somewhere between Heaven and Hell learning that lesson the hard way. But now Owen’s sentence is complete, his penance done, and he’s ready to meet with his caseworker, the Archangel Michael, to finally take that long-awaited trip to Paradise. But then she walks in to his life and everything changes. Mia, a burst of color cutting through the drab grey of the In-Between. She is excitement enough for Owen to delay salvation for two more weeks, and in that time, learn that he still has a long way to go before moving on.

Al Sikes draws insights from wide-ranging experiences that began in the Midwest and moved east to the power cities of Washington and New York. Sikes’ leadership helped shape the arc of twenty-first-century communication technologies from positions as Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and then President of Hearst New Media. Sikes’ bold leadership at the FCC, eliminating barriers that blocked new technologies, helped lead to digital TV, radio and mobile phone services. He also began actions against Howard Stern that resulted in Stern wishing Sikes dead on his daily radio show. Sikes’ technology insights and his collaborations with technology pioneers were captured in his first book, Fast Forward. Beyond his work in business and government, Sikes draws on experiences chairing The Trinity Forum Board, tending a small apiary with his wife, Marty, and leading a growing jazz festival in his hometown of Easton, Maryland. While living and working in New York City, Sikes founded Read Alliance, which trains teenagers to tutor children with reading deficiencies. In 2004, the Manhattan Institute chose Sikes as one of eight winners of the Social Entrepreneurship Award. This award recognizes enterprising individuals who are helping Americans realize their full potential as citizens and members of society.

Nick Desjardins grew up an army brat, bouncing around the South. As a teenager he started collecting books and records, and when college came, he couldn't quite figure out what to do. The depression probably didn't help. Leaving behind a mostly finished degree, he took to traveling and menial labor jobs, typing away on a beat-up laptop any chance he could get. He's had short fiction published in A Literation, The Underground Literary Journal, Pique Magazine, and Human Parts. He's served as fiction editor for A Literation, as well as content reader for the Birch Gang Review. He spends far too much time trying to figure out the musical preferences of his two dogs and hanging around dive bars.
