On Tour 02/07/23-03/19/23 “The Weight Of Flowers” by D.K. Silver

Release Date: February 6, 2023

About The Book:

Born in 1900, Jamison grew up believing that there only existed people of value and those without. This belief was conditioned by her misogynistic father, the Colonel-a man who ruled their Kentucky stud farm home like a dictator, reminding her every day under his roof that she belonged to the latter because she wasn’t born a boy. 

Determined to control her own fate, Jamison secures an assistantship with a successful feminist author in Switzerland. However, within days of her arrival, she receives news that her position has been mysteriously withdrawn. When her father descends upon her Swiss hotel with a suitor in tow, she realizes her role as a pawn in another one of his self-serving schemes. A desperate turn of fate presents itself in the form of a bouquet of flowers along with a party invitation from a stranger, rubber tycoon J.D. Roe, a man who believes his redemption is in her hands.  

Between them all is Carrington Marcs, Jamison’s childhood friend, who spent his young life pining for her. His plans to prove himself on a hunting trip with her father, becomes eclipsed by the Colonel’s own selfish plans for him. 

 Against the background of Swiss neutrality, Jamison takes a stand against her father, the restrictive social mores, and her own fears in a bid for independence and value. The Weight of Flowers tells Jamison and Carrington’s story and how far the Colonel will reach to bring everyone into his own damnation. 

About The Author:

D.K. Silver is the author of The Weight of Flowers, the first in a genre-bending saga. The series explores themes of sexual exploitation and dalliance, greed in its many guises and the quest for self-worth. D.K. Silver is fearless in her determination to explore taboos, using her gifts to relentlessly dig below the surface. As a costume designer, she’s been trained to visually reveal a character’s truer nature -as a writer, she takes it to another level, passionate to unmask the deliciously decadent, the deviant, and the downright misguided aspects of our collective humanness. Her stories are paced like a slow-motion car crash that’s difficult to look away from.

When not at her kitchen table in Carmel-By-The-Sea writing her next project, Signal Hill, you’ll find her teaching yoga or walking the beach. She often divides her time between her own thoughts and the clamoring of characters who vie for her attention. She celebrates long, well-penned sentences with cooking and gardening, and irons her sheets for meditation. On Sundays, you’ll find her letting go on a World Ecstatic Dance Zoom site.

Book Blurbs: 

Unusual romances bloom, and fantasy sometimes makes its way to reality in The Weight ofFlowers. The story is much more than a genre-bending read, it is a psychological and sensual experience. Exuberant, descriptive prose enlivens each page, and complex relationships are deeply explored. Coupled with passionate, incendiary opposite and same sex exploration, amidst its unexpected twists and turns, this debut novel catapults into a category of its own.-Stacey Donovan, New York Times Bestselling Editor, author of Dive and Zalman King’s Red Shoe Diaries book series, book editor, and ghostwriter

D.K. Silver has created a powerful weave of drama in The Weight of Flowers, a tale of a fierce young woman’s striving to break from an overbearing father in the south of the 1920s. Thoroughly engaging in capturing the deep complexities of family and the destructive brutishness of men.-Jeff D. Buchanan author of The Carnal Education of Miss Vicky, The Reader, Earthrise
