Talented writer Silja Evelyn soon to publish debut novel

July 31, 2019

We’re delighted to announce that Silja Evelyn will be publishing her first novel with Salad Pages in early 2020.

Silja describes herself as a writer who is “comfortable writing about uncomfortable things”. Her unforgettable debut novel is enthralling and poignant.

Pretty Boy is a dark drama following the personal and moral struggles of Micah, who has dropped out of university to provide for himself and his girlfriend, Ellie. Although Micah and Ellie are devoted to each other, Ellie’s difficult recovery from narcotics addiction places emotional and financial strain on their relationship.  When Micah takes a job as a night-cleaner in an office, the role soon offers Micah more than expected when the C.E.O, Mr. Somers, takes a liking to him. Silja’s debut novel is an unsettling and touching literary creation.

Silja has just completed her Film Studies degree at Anglian Ruskin University and now plans to pursue her dream career as a writer. We’re thrilled to be working with her! You can find out more about Silja here.

More news about Silja and her book coming soon. We’ll keep you posted!
