And here we are, Pismo Beach and all the clams we can eat..... no, that's not right. Try it again.
And here we are, ladies and gentlemen... yeah, that's better. My 23rd Release Day. The day where everything in Jaclyn Johnson's world changes. Chemical Agent: A Thriller, the seventh full-length story in the series, meets readers for the first time today.
And breathe. This is a tough one, folks.
Every time an author releases a book into the wild, he or she hopes the book is well-received. He or she hopes the book leaves an emotional resonance in the soul of the reader, so much so that the reader tells a few friends about it. That's what I'm truly hoping happens with this book.
Folks, I have an admission: a major character dies in this book (of course, if you've been on my Facebook page or have read a few of the previous blogs, you know that already), and it's a character who has been a rather central part of the storyline up until now. After this book, that changes.
I hope you're all ready for the change.
Chemical Agent is a rather emotional story even more than the death of this character: Jaclyn re-unites with her father's brother's family for the first time since before the tragedy of 9/11, as well as people she hadn't seen since that day, too. Her life became twisted on that day, and in the resulting years, her life had turned into a steady ship, and meeting Tom and Tasha had only given her life more meaning.
Her life turns even more twisted in this book.
Hold on to your hats, gang. Everything changes today.
