From bad checks to bathroom graffiti, Brent Jones has always been drawn to writing. He won a national creative writing competition at the age of fourteen, although he can’t recall what the story was about. Seventeen years later, he gave up his career to pursue creative writing full-time.

Jones writes from his home in Fort Erie, Canada. He’s happily married, a bearded cyclist, a mediocre guitarist, and the proud owner of two dogs with a God complex. Subscribe to his newsletter (AuthorBrentJones.com) or follow him on social media (@AuthorBrentJ) for updates.

Hi Debi,

Thanks for checking out Go Home, Afton. I hope you enjoy it.

Great question.

All four parts in The Afton Morrison Series will be released this year. In fact, they're all available for pre-order right now in most places eBooks are sold.

Go Home, Afton (June 25, 2018)
See You Soon, Afton (August 7, 2018)
Nice Try, Afton (September 17, 2018)
Time’s Up, Afton (October 29, 2018)

This release schedule is also available on my website, at the back of each book, in my social media cover photos, and here on Goodreads, too.

I hope that helps, and I look forward to your review.

“Need a good mystery? Ten thumbs up.”

Need a good mystery? Roller coaster [in See You Soon, Afton]? Check. Intrigue? Yes. Storyline that tracks? Check. Cliffhanger? Ggrrrr! Yes! Ten thumbs up.
