Steps of the Sun, by American Poet and Novelist, Steven R. Luebke Released on Web-e-Books®

Society Suffers when Ambition is Constrained by the Settled Status Quo

PORTLAND, ME. USA – Steps of the Sun, fiction by Steve Luebke, is being released on Web-e-Books® in support of world-wide, cross-platform distribution of his novel on institutional indifference in American culture. The Tri-Screen Connection, LLC, publisher and distributor of the exclusive e-book, is providing the technology platform and online shopping website for Steps of the Sun.

In Steps of the Sun, poet and novelist Steve Luebke introduces a cast of social proponents drawn from a large, Midwestern, university community. Like many good citizens, these mainstreamers are guided by a traditional moral compass on pre-set life courses bent on enlightening others while trying to achieve something of personal importance.

Nonetheless, they are regular people; ill-equipped for heroics and constrained by modest realms: Evan,   an unsung yet caring priest, who writes church pamphlets on teen sex and sells peanuts and fishing lures on the side; Arthur, a bedraggled graduate student and odd-jobber is a sucker for relationships that misfire; and an attractive young woman, Rachel is a nun with the soul of a modern social worker and a desk in a rotting city district where men lurk in doorways and street children mix with people of questionable intent.

This is where Evan, Arthur, and Rachel look in the eyes of defeated lives. Their common attachment is The Haven, a dilapidated rectory that Rachel transforms into a neighborhood youth center, a bright light on the horizon steps away from official condemnation.

Steps of the Sun breaks new ground by offering a contemporary perspective on world-weariness. The story involves everyday people in a plot that unravels a veritable skein of societal truths in a studied comparison of those who seek change versus those satisfied with the status quo. It is here in the author’s fictitious “city of pathology” that the independent-minded attempt to tackle serious problems while engaged in a battle of will with immoveable members of the establishment.

Media Blurbs:

“Had you not known better, you would have said it was not an orb or even a disc but a yellow stain spread against the sky, as if the sun had been flung against the firmament and cracked, spilling its light.”

“As if in sympathy, the sun, too, bowed beneath the horizon, its brief light surrendered once again to the darkness that extended its domain a little more each day.”

“The sun had begun to slink down in embarrassment, its beams no longer focused on the polished table but against the wall to your left.”
