Exclusive Preview: BREAKWATER by Katriona Chapman

Today we have an exclusive preview of Katriona Chapman’s second major graphic work, Breakwater from Avery Hill Publishing. At an old art deco picture house, Chris finds a new friend… then has to decide if she has room in her life for one. In Breakwater, Chapman explores the joys and drawbacks of choosing a casual job over a career path, mental health issues, and the burden that comes with letting other peoples’ problems into your life. The book will be published in the USA on November 10th, 2020.
