I put the final touches on Sammy Keyes and the Power of Justice Jack today!
282 pages of crazy fun.
(And did you notice, the title is still being tweaked?)
And because I am bleary-eyed and still have miles of un-fun to go before I sleep, this is just a quick check in to say Hi and thank you for your enthused comments from last week … and deliver to you the Prologue (first manuscript page). Hope it makes you chuckle over Sammys past. What a wild ride this has been.
Until next week, THANK YOU for checking in!
Sammy Keyes and the Power of Justice Jack
Wendelin Van Draanen
The City of Santa Martina has some odd ducks swimming in its waters. There’s Madame Nashira the fortune teller that lives in the Heavenly Hotel. There’s the Elvis impersonator who works nights at Maynard’s Market. There’s the Psycho Kitty Queen who used to be a beauty queen but now has a gazillion cats and looks like a ninety year old Barbie.
We’ve also got a cockeyed taxidermist, a whole school of pro-wrestling maniacs, Dusty Mike who hangs out at the graveyard, and a hunched old lady who likes to walk her two-hundred pound pet pig.
And that’s not even taking into account all the bikers and gang guys and—oh yeah! How could I forget?
So really, I thought I’d seen it all. I thought this crazy town couldn’t surprise me with anything new.
And then I met Justice Jack.
