Tip of the Tongue, by American Novelist Stewart J. Bellus Released on Web-e-Books®
Three Lost Souls Are Ensnarled in Secret Fantasy Worlds and Deception
Long Island, NY, USA – Tip of the Tongue, fiction by novelist Stewart J. Bellus, is being released on Web-e-Books® in support of world-wide, cross-platform distribution of his novel on deviant behavior and deception. The Tri-Screen Connection, LLC, publisher and distributor of the exclusive e-book, is providing the technology platform and online shopping website for Tip of the Tongue.
In Tip of the Tongue, author Stewart Bellus examines the lives of three characters battling desperate loneliness and rejection. With echoes from real life public figures who have fallen from grace due to perverse private activities, this outwardly respectable threesome is doomed by hidden vulnerabilities and private fantasies. He knowingly increases their suffering by choosing New York City as the setting, its sheer immensity fully capable of uncivilly isolating lost souls. In this brazen setting -- where emotional beings are easily stranded among artificial structures -- mass media, museums, theaters, and eateries provide indispensable touch points to a distancing humanity. On the conscious level, the individual questions their existence.
There is undoubtedly no better environment than this for pulling together multiple characters with a neurosis -- that special mix of conflicting emotions and behaviors that may lead to perversions, multiple personalities, self-deceptions, and other feel-good mechanisms effected in the pursuit of happiness.
Ordinary people struggling to swim upstream -- a journalist, a high school teacher, and a star student athlete -- the author’s play-actors successfully spawn fantasies to perpetuate life cycles of thrills. Obsessed, temporarily unmindful of the truth, these people conveniently tune-out before their moral personalities have a chance to speak, and offer only glimpses of substitute personas designed to mask and protect an inner ugliness that isn’t meant to be seen.
This elaborate story captures the insanity of fantasy and manipulation gone astray. In a depiction of the antics and betrayals employed by those wedded to a deviant fantasy, Tip of the Tongue helps the reader decide which falsities are worth concealing.

“Today he was prowling the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of his favorite beats.”
“He must have been normal at some point, before the infatuations started, occurring infrequently in the early days, and inspiring more admiration than lust. Worse now, much, much worse, luridness constantly slammed him.”
“She knew self-flagellation wasn’t useful in any way, yet something compelled her to complete the circuit from her bad beginnings to her worse present, a résumé of small failures adding up to a large one, her life.”
