Special Karma is self-published.  It is also the first novel set in a Zen practice community in the United States.  These statements go together, as niche publishers like Shambhala and Wisdom Publications specialize in nonfiction.

Special Karma is available now as a paperback though Amazon:

    Special Karma: A Zen Novel of Love and Folly

    Special Karma is a novelized account of my experiences in a Zen Buddhist monastery in America, the first to address the issue of sexual misconduct by a Zen master. Why did I write it as a novel and not a memoir? Good question! The answer is that I wanted to approach this material in a way that would give me a novelist’s freedom in exploring the vulnerabilities and shortcomings of my protagonist, as well as those of the book’s other characters, including the Roshi. As an avid novel-reader, I also hoped to harness the novel’s ability to create a richly detailed world, one that the reader can inhabit and explore.
