Valentine's Day 2018

AVAILABLE NOW on Amazon

Everything comes easy for Zach Johnston. Only 24 years old, he’s got it all-- the girl, the high paying tech job, and the rent-controlled apartment in the Village. But when his best friend overdoses and his girlfriend leaves him, his inability to connect with other people overwhelms him.


Equal parts whimsical romantic comedy and cynical literary fiction, LOVE FROM AMANDA TO ZOEY is the story of a successful man who doesn’t feel like he’s successful or a man, and his struggle to understand the meanings of life and Zoey’s latest text.

AUTHOR

Ian Mark first dipped his toes into the writing waters as a high school senior when his essay equating college admissions with dating was published in Boston Globe Magazine. After a string of one-night standard applications he hooked up with NYU and spent the next 3 years immersed in Manhattan (and yes, sigh, occasionally Brooklyn) nightlife. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude with a B.A in English and American Literature in 2015. Forgoing a lucrative career in… uh… Englishonomics maybe? Ian placed his degree somewhere he cannot remember and absconded to Pasadena, CA, where he hosts The Pasadonuts Improv Livestream every week and works as an actor in film and television. His writing has appeared in Hive Magazine, Outrageous Fortune, CelticsBlog, the Newton Tab, and Washington Square News. He grew up in Newton, MA, where he perfected the art of faking illness to skip school and read novels all day. After reading a thousand or so he began imagining writing his own. After a hundred more he jumped in the deep end. This is his first novel. He has no children or pets. Follow him on Twitter @TheRealIanMark
