Young author Aaron Galvin talks about his debut novel

Hoosier native Aaron Galvin talks about his debut young adult novel “Salted” and his upcoming book signing.

Hoosier native Aaron Galvin, 31, is no stranger to the spotlight. From working with Hollywood directors Clint Eastwood and Christopher Nolan, to executive producing and starring in his award-winning indie feature film, Wedding Bells & Shotgun Shells, Galvin runs the creative gamut. From May 28th – June 1st, Galvin will be at various stops throughout central Indiana to promote the newest title on his resume: author.

An alum of Ball State University (’05), Galvin recently released his debut novel, Salted, a young adult urban fantasy featuring The Indianapolis Zoo as the principal backdrop. The story centers around a crew of slave catchers sent ashore to recapture an elusive runaway, only to discover a darker secret that forces them into a moral quandary: secure their own freedom at the expense of others, or return empty-handed to face the grisly consequences?

Galvin’s book opened inside the Top 50 of Amazon’s 100 Hottest Selling New Releases and continues to see strong sales. Critics have praised his fresh perspective on lesser-known mythological creatures and applauded his promotion of diversity.

“It’s always hard to find a unique novel on mermaids,” writes Steampunk Sparrow Book Blog. “I’ve seen a spin or two from time to time, but nothing really original, and certainly nothing I’d really describe as ‘cool’. That was until I got the chance to read Salted.”

Indianapolis residents can find Galvin on Friday, May 30th at Indy Reads Books from 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., or at Books & Brews on Sunday, June 1st from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. Print copies of Salted will be available for purchase on-site, or you can buy the e-version on Amazon. You can learn more about Galvin and Salted at his website, He currently lives in Southern California with his wife and daughter.
