VANCOUVER, British Columbia - July 30, 2013 - PRLog -- ThinkBox Entertainment is proud to announce the release of Breaking: A Novelette (978-0-9876986-5-0), the second of a series of novelettes that extend the fictional universe of author Matt Hader’s 2011 novel, Bad Reputation. With the roll-out of the novelettes, fans of the book have the opportunity to learn more about their favorite characters. “What were some of these characters doing before the novel began, what were they doing when they weren’t on the page, and what happened after the book ended? ” asks Matt. “I’m going to answer those questions with a series of novelettes (some dramatic, others comedic) that will focus on various characters and certain aspects of their lives that I find most fascinating.”

Inspired by Matt’s childhood experiences, Bad Reputation is an emotionally compelling dark comedy about the struggle to find one’s identity after a lifetime of societal ostracization. “I’ve always wondered what was going on in the mind of a person who was being ostracized,” says Matt. Bad Reputation is my offering as a cautionary tale to those who bully others. You just never know what that ‘victim’ may be plotting.”

In this latest novelette, Matt asks, “How far will a mother go to protect her family…from herself?”

Rita Dimos, a wife and mother of two, grew-up in a dysfunctional family. The abuse she endured was constant; the disabling effects on her persona, permanent. In the novel, Bad Reputation, Rita was intertwined in John Caul's errant revenge scheme and forced to commit murder. Inexplicably, all her pent-up emotional turmoil instantly dissipated the moment she pulled the trigger.

Bad Reputation is a dark comedy, however, Breaking has an even darker tone,” says Hader.

In Breaking, now two years later, Rita’s contented state of mind erodes, allowing her apathetic and sometimes abusive nature to resurface. Her spiraling pretzel logic launches her into a dangerous plot to once again regain emotional harmony for the sake of her family - a plan that involves another homicide. She travels to the New England countryside on a risky journey that could either set her life back in order or cost her the family she adores.

In celebration of the release, Balmoral, the first novelette in the series, will be offered free of charge on Friday Aug 2, 2013 exclusively on (
