I am hard at work on a trilogy called THE DIVINE DANTES that tracks the characters of The Divine Comedy through modern times. It's Goth. It's rock-n-roll. It's the most unique love story you've ever read. Watch for it in the spring of 2013. Please visit me at www.AndrewBarger.com and at my blog: www.AndrewBarger.Blogspot.com.
