When Jacob Devlin was four years old, he would lounge around in Batman pajamas and make semi-autobiographical picture books about an adventurous python named Jake the Snake. Eventually, he traded his favorite blue crayon for a black pen, and he never put it down. When not reading or writing, Jacob loves geeking out at comic book conventions and blasting Italian pop rock music in his car. He does most of these things in southern Arizona.

I'm the kind of guy who finds a story in an abstract photo or a song. It also helps to stick my characters in the hot seat and "interview" them as if we were talking face to face. I do that a lot on my blog, not just to generate ideas but also because it's a lot of fun!(less)

Similarly, read, read, read! Cultivate things that inspire you, but don't wait for inspiration to come. Make lists of your favorite books, songs, TV characters, places, etc. Inspiration is everywhere. Don't wait for it. Create it. I also highly recommend falling into a good writing community or finding some honest, constructive critique partners with similar goals! If writing is in your heart, don't give it up.(less)

I had an exciting challenge writing THE UNSEEN.


In addition to the fact that I’d never written a sequel before and needed to raise the stakes, my biggest challenge had to do with the setting and tone of the book. While the first book takes place in an original town filled with familiar characters, book two is set primarily in a place we’ve all heard of: Wonderland!


Playing with a familiar territo...

4.5 stars and I'm only rounding down because it was so darn bleak and now I need to watch cartoons or something until I can smile again.

But seriously, what a book! I think this one was longer than any of the previous three, and I tore through it fast
