Baron Brady Aims to Satisfy Independent Publishing Publicity Craving with Print-on-Demand Availability of Umbra at


LOS ANGELES, CA —JULY 20, 2007— Baron Brady offers a troubling look at madness and family life with the publication of Umbra in conjunction with Lulu (, the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.


Into every family a little insanity must fall, or so it would seem for the members of the Friend family; though it’s the fear of insanity that divides them and only the most deadly of confrontations that might bring them together again.


Umbra details the strained relationship between two brothers, Sam and Jacob Friend, and the havoc which ensues from their failure to come to terms. Told from the standpoint of five characters, Umbra, examines not only failed family relationships but the nature of sanity itself. And just as unresolved feelings spill over from one generation to the next, perhaps insanity becomes the unwelcome and unavoidable inheritance of the past. With the second generation of the Friend family poised to repeat the same tragedies of the former generation, is there any hope that the future will one day free itself from the past?
