Welcome to Miroer Arts

This is major rework of a website designed to present various creative writing and freelance photography items. It’s a living site that will undergo constant evolution as artistic endeavors ebb and flow. And, there’s always the learning curve associated with my learning how to be use the site editing tool.

That said, I’d like to introduce my “flagship” item, a novel titled “Dark Deception”, available in both hard copy through Amazon and in various e-formats. Please see the site’s About Miroer Arts . . . page for details.

For openers, here’s the “elevator pitch” for Dark Deception:

The text is an emotionally engaging and thought provoking work that centers around a closely-knit trio of women who come to depend on one another as they attempt to live meaningful lives in an authoritarian, faith-based community. The forces their families, friendship, and others in the community exert on the three don’t always work in harmony, and they face limited freedom addressing issues, large and small. The lives of the three and other various characters unfold in a tapestry of emotions and encounters as all attempt to deal with the demands of a community that tolerates no loyal opposition. The book’s characters – both within and outside the faith – meld and collide in a series of encounters that involve family, love, betrayal, and a quest for power and control.

*****************

In addition to the novel, I’ve established a small on-line gallery on at a site called Fine Art America.

Please accept my invitation to visit my profile at http://www.fineartamerica.com/profiles/lawrence-pratt.html. More information about specific photo presentations thorough Cafe Press can be found on the About Miroer Arts . . . page.

All images are suitable for all audiences at home or at work with some of the “critter” items geared for the younger set.

If you’re interested in viewing more images of a specific genre – floral, seascape, etc. – or submitting any questions or comments, please contact me at miroerarts@gmail.com. No attachments or links, please.

Lastly, I’m always appreciative of any word-of-mouth or social network advertising regarding the novel and my photography.

Cheers.

About Miroer Arts Creative Writing & Freelance Photography

Miroer (pronounced “mirror”) Arts is the umbrella under which I’ve been – quite sporadically – pursuing my creative writing and freelance photography for some years. Miroer is derived from the first two letters of the first names of my wife, our son, and our daughter.

As in the past, both written and image efforts will change and be reflected in this site. With my recent retirement, I look forward to expanding the level of both writing and photographic efforts.

========

The single largest undertaking has been the development and publishing of “Dark Deception” – a  novel of contemporary dramatic fiction that reached maturity at an impressive yet very readable 300 pages.

In addition to the Fine Art America “anchor store” for photo images, clothing items with images are available through Cafe Press. Right now there are two images featured on a variety of casual items. Check out

As with Fine Art America, I’m looking to expand the Cafe Press selection in the near future.

Again, feel free to contact me at miroerarts@gmail.com at any time, but no attachments or links, please. I’ll also be checking out the blog side of the website on a somewhat regular basis.

As the site expands, look for dedicated photo pages as well as chapter-by-chapter presentation of my novel, Dark Deception.

Cheers.
