IN VERITAS forthcoming in spring 2020!

C. J. Lavigne’s debut novel, In Veritas, has been acquired by NeWest Press and will be released in the spring of 2020. As described by NeWest, “A young synesthete leaps between the everyday streets of Ottawa and a parallel realm of magic.”

As described by C.J., “In Veritas is about people who are allergic to technology. It probes the fundamental impossibilities of human communication. It’s an experimental, nonlinear novel that ultimately examines the act of storytelling and the limitations of truth. Also, it has a dog.”

In Veritas will be available in paperback and ebook formats, in bookstores and online. For the latest updates, follow @seajaylav and @NeWestPress on Twitter, or check the NeWest site at
