Introducing Jetta Black

Wow, I didn’t realize it’s been two months since I last posted. I’ve been hard at work both promoting THE BUSINESS OF DEATH and working on the sequel, THE COMPANY OF ANGELS. The plan was to use NaNoWriMo ’14 to finish ANGELS, but in the last two weeks an idea has taken hold of my brain and won’t let me go. So, I’ll be using November to crank out the rough draft of a new, stand-alone story. Here’s a taste of the main character:

Jetta Black

 

Well, really, it’s a taste of her alter ego: Jetta Black. The story as it stands is a deconstruction of the superhero genre, told in the real world with no fancy superpowers or aliens or maniacal villains. I hope to really explore what the difference between a superhero and a vigilante is, and how we draw the lines between right and wrong. Of course that’s very ambitious, so we’ll see where November takes me.

I do have a quick announcement that I’ll be doing a book signing and talking about sequels at the Dothan, Alabama, 2nd & Charles bookstore on November 15th from 2-4 PM. Other locations are in the works as well, so stay tuned for photos and upcoming “tour” dates. 🙂
