What a great year 2020 is turning out to be! We're thrilled to be adding author Jeff Pollak to our group of talented Acorns. Jeff has signed with Acorn Publishing to release his debut novel, FIRST SECOND COMING, in August 2020.
Jeff Pollak grew up in Riverdale – not the one in the Archie comics and movies, the one in the Bronx. After graduating college in Buffalo’s often frozen tundra, he moved to Los Angeles to thaw out and learn to play golf without losing the ball in snow drifts. While there, a law school accepted him into their night program. Now retired from life as a civil trial litigator, Jeff lives in the Crescenta Valley where the closest Jeff comes to winter i...

While we could sing our own praise, we'll let Kirkus do it for us:
"His prose is brisk and funny, its tone set by Haskell’s comic kvetching and hand-wringing. (“I might become radioactive and turn into one of those green, hairy creatures I read about in my comic books,” he frets after reading about toxic waste in the San Fernando Valley.) Haskell’s endless neurotic uncertainty over who to be and what to do will captivate readers. An entertaining and perceptive YA take on the predicament of gay adolescence." - Kirkus Reviews
Today is the release of Haskell Himself by the immensely talented, Gary Seigel!
Meet Haskell Hodge. At sixteen he’s already garnered so...
