Indie Author Spotlight

Pierce Koslosky Jr.



PIERCE KOSLOSKY, JR. graduated with a degree in Psychology from Duke University, and then worked three years in North Carolina’s maximum-security prison. He moved to Nebraska, and four decades later is the chairman and CEO of a manufacturing company. He lives in Omaha with Candy, his wife of thirty-five years, and with one very fortunate golden-doodle. They have four children who could not be less alike.  

 Pierce and his family have gone to Surfside Beach, South Carolina for over twenty-five years. For most of that time they have stayed in blue house on the cover of A Week at Surfside Beach. They bought the home in 2000 and rent it out in summer. Originally a poet, he began writing these short stories fifteen years ago, inspired by entries in their guest book.














Title: A Week at Surfside Beach: A Collection of Short Stories

Series: Stand-Alone

By Pierce Koslosky Jr.

Genre: Short Stories / Literary Fiction

Publication Date: June 9, 2020










Thousands of families and individuals are attracted to the South Carolina coast each year, renting houses up and down the beach throughout the seasons. They bring their lives with them when they come to this magical place. In A Week at Surfside Beach (Loba Publishing, an imprint of Vertel Publishing; June 9, 2020) , author Pierce Koslosky Jr. has crafted sixteen poignant short stories that paint a vivid portrait of the beach’s diverse, temporary inhabitants: those people attracted to a landscape both beautiful and overwhelming in its ability to force introspection and change.

   Set over the course of a single rental season that ends at Christmas, the book’s unrelated characters all have their stays in the blue beach house, yet each story has a distinct message at its core. Readers will follow people in every stage of life—from a six-year-old entering the imaginary world of crabs to an escapee from a retirement home—and witness their varied individual experiences. These are stories of hope and redemption, connection and detachment, and lessons taught and learned.  

Both original and contemplative, heartbreaking and inspirational, A Week at Surfside Beach brings together a collection of tales with seemingly ordinary, simple, and familiar details—yet underneath their calm, relatable surfaces exist the uncomfortable, extraordinary complexities of life.










Thank you! This is from Pierce's publicist, Emily Keough.

Team Kids!

Hello, Everybody, my name is Katiria I've always wanted to do a fundraiser for the less privileged  kids who live on the streets in the state of Florida. I have visited Florida a couple of times when I visit my family members there. I have seen less privileged kids who are struggling on the streets always break my heart whenever I see kids struggle and trying to buy food for themselves and their families. I always give them some money but I always wanted to do something more for them when I leave them but I never got the courage to make a fundraiser for the less privileged kids in Florida. But now with what everything is going on this year with Covid19 the less privileged kids and their families need our help and support more than ever, so I finally got the courage to make a fundraiser on Go Fund Me for them this year.


Your donations would be used to buy food, clothes, shoes, sandal's and books for the less privileged kids and their families on what they need the most. I would like to raise $1000.00 in two weeks but I would greatly appreciate any donations by the end of two weeks. Your support and donations would mean a lot to me because it will encourage me to help more the less privileged kids and their families in the future. I would be eternally grateful for your help and donations in any way you can help.

Take Care, Stay Safe and God Bless!












Life Update & Blog Break!

Friday, April 24, 2020



Hello, my lovely friends as the title say this is a life update and I am also taking a blog break. I can't tell you right now when I am coming back to blogging again, but I am hoping to be back by the end of the summertime if I can. Right now my health and my life are my priorities so, unfortunately, reading books has to take a back seat for a moment but I will read and review books for blog tours that I am still on for May and June. Now the beginning of this month has been very emotional for me in every way, there's is a lot that is going on with me in my health and my life right now I won't go into any of the details now. But what I can tell you that my faith and my Heavenly Father Jesus Christ & my Ever Blessed Mother Virgin Mary has opened my eyes completely to them and I gave them finally my full trust and confidence in them. I always love them but I never really gave them my full trust and confidence in them. But my faith and the supports of my close friends and family members I can tell you I left all my worries, anxieties, mental illness and complete health and my life in their pure ever blessed hands because I know they are always with me wherever I go and now I can truly say that I completely love, confide and trust them with everything within me because they have blessed me so many times and they continue blessing me in every way. And I  am truly thankful and very grateful for my Heavenly Father and My Blessed Ever Virgin Mary for blessing me and for everything they do for me.  Now don't worry my friends I will be back hopefully by the end of the summer but I will be much stronger than ever when I do come back. Much blessing and love to all. Take Care and Stay Safe my friends!
