Author, Clifford B. O'Connell is a new voice emerging on the international literary scene starting this week. His two novels will debut at Frankfurt Book Fair with IPBA.


Working with New Life Options under "Water & Power Press", the 2017 Frankfurt and BEA 2018 is to offer international book rights, translation rights, and look for publishing and distribution to support worldwide readership and promote sales.


Proceeds will be coordinated to support Educational Programs and Animal Rights.


"My life is reflected in my 5 books, two will be released in Frankfurt through the IBPA to promote the work and my favorite causes. Working for human rights and dignity, with books being released dedicated to "the men and women on the planet committed to preserving and not destroying it" or to ""the men and women wrongfully executed in the U.S.", I am using my pen to fight for issues that might otherwise be ignored or glanced over at best.  This is a long harbored literary tradition and I'm sticking to it."


So is Reed Expositions and the honored guests:

""Books are the best weapons," President Emmanuel Macron of France said at the opening of the Frankfurt Book Fair, addressing the unifying power of literature and language. "Without culture, there is no Europe."

The French leader, who joined Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany at the opening ceremony of the world's oldest book fair Tuesday night, spoke of culture's crucial role in Europe, and of how it can be a unifying force at a time of rising nationalism. France is the guest of honor this year, and more than 7,000 exhibitors from over 100 countries are expected to attend.

"Identity of language lives through the confrontations with other languages," Mr. Macron said."

This year:

"Carried by the mission of two generations of Nathans to the show"…you can talk to staff or to Terry Nathan, Executive at the IBPA booth, my hope is I will find my niche and the books will reach their new audiences and new markets."


The Imprints and representation:


New Life Options A/V began at the Buchmesse under Jan Nathan, and the mentoring of fashion photographer and publisher, Ed Lange.  It is delighted to represent and promote Clifford O'Connell to generations of  new readers.  Both books are available in ebook release at this time.  Water & Power Press will work with new formats and explore with show sales and or leads how best to proceed.  In a changing marketplace, collaboration, co-creation, P&D possibilities continue to drive the marketplace and allow readers format choices.
