On July 30, I will be re-releasing the book Jack: Grime and Punishment from the Brothers Grime Series. Lex Valentine of Winterheart design, who does many of my covers, created this awesome new graphic for me. This is the same book you remember, only with a brand new short story at the end featuring Skippy, Jack, Eddie, Gabe, and Ryan. Skippy is still probably my favorite side character, ever.
As an author, you sometimes look back and wish maybe you’d done something differently. In hindsight, I wish I hadn’t called Skippy’s wife Kelly Ann. How was I to know that a very famous Kellyanne was on the horizon and that I’d never see that name again without thinking about the one in the news?
In rereading, I’m still happy with these characters, with this book, with this idea. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Next month, look for Eddie: Grime doesn’t Pay, and in early September, the brand new Brothers Grime Novel, Gabe: Partners in Grime.
Here’s wishing you lots of shade trees, lemonade, and many ways to beat the heat this summer!
