Spotlight: Division Clock by Ivan Samokish

Today on the blog, we have Ivan Samokish talking some of his inspiration that went into the making of his novel.

The Division Clock is a modern surreal fantasy novel that aims to explore the depths of the subconscious mind during times of great upheaval. The novel is purely a fictional fantasy yet it attempts to grasp the full scope of a person's struggle to find their own identity, make sense of the world and battle against any form of depression or oppression. 

Below is a quick summary of what the novel is about (although it only touches the surface): "A young man battling with severe depression, loss of memory and gradual onset of madness races to find a stolen magical clock and reset time to save humanity from an evil power. Trapped in his own crazed visions, the line between reality and dreams is gradually blurred, leaving him struggling to overcome an adverse battle for identity, perception and restoration of sanity.

The novel is complete and ready for publication.
It is for sale online on Amazon in eBook and paperback format where you can also preview the first few chapters to gauge whether you want to keep reading.
