In a luxe read with weighty questions at its center, debut novelist Laura Holtz’s Warm Transfer [May 29, 2018, Gatekeeper Press] breaks into the new media landscape forged by the #MeToo movement with a story of self-discovery, newfound joy and reinvention.
Tamsen Peel isn’t happy in her marriage. Issues ranging from the run-of-the-mill to the run-for-the-hills plague her relationship with high-powered advertising executive Victor. Amid their lavish lifestyle in the uppermost echelon of Chicago elites, Tamsen has lost her sense of identity and hope for the future. Enter an attractive and thoughtful young musician hired to give guitar lessons to the Peels’ special needs son, and Tamsen is ushered into the Warm Transfer she needed but didn’t know she wanted.
It was during a routine customer service call that Holtz learned that the act of an operator remaining on the line with their caller until that caller is successfully transferred to another agent is called a warm transfer. It immediately set her creative wheels spinning and Warm Transfer is the work that grew from that original draft. Metaphorically speaking, a warm transfer happens any time we help others find safe passage to their destination. Warm transfers move us forward, and they are at the heart of Tamsen’s journey.
Ten percent of the profits from Warm Transfer are being donated by Holtz to The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN).
