Jack blames her dark writing influences on living close to one of England’s finest forests. Having grown up hearing a history of kidnappings, murders, strange sightings, and sexual exploits her neck of the woods is renowned for, Jack takes that into her writing, having also learned that human coping strategies for intense situations can sometimes make the best of people have disastrously bad moments. Redeeming those flaws is Jack’s drive.

Jack's also a contract editor, working with Dreamspinner Press, DSP Publications, and Harmony Ink. She's also had the absolute pleasure of editing exceedingly talented indie authors like Adrienne Wilder and Joseph Lance Tonlet.

Basically this all means Jack finds herself incredibly humbled to write, edit, an

Hi Lily!

I'm so glad you've enjoyed the Don't lads so far. And yes. :) There are two more novels planned in this series. :)

Don't 5 is with the publishers now, and should be out early next year.

Don't 6, the final novel, will be towards the end of 2017.

Thank you for asking and staying with me through this series!!!

Okay, this a pretty yin and yang post, to be honest: opposite sides to the publishing coin, I suppose. So I'd like to do two posts with this, but get this one over first, as it stings.

For those who are waiting for an update on Don't 6 (Fractured):

For legal reasons that I can't disclose, work on the script is no longer taking place. It is complete and has been with the publisher for two months,... Read more of this blog post »

Oooh, hi, Lynda! I'm hoping to have Gray Matters with the pubisher, in December. That should then make for a 2015 release.Gray's a gorgeous character to handle in paper and I'm almost -- almost -- reluctant to let him go. :)

Tina Hi Jack :) Thx for accepting. I'm part of the Sinfully Sexy M/M team and Macky and Monique FINALLY convinced me to start reading your Don't.

What can I say? I'm already hooked, it's the totally mind fuck, brilliant done! Now I can't wait to read Lynn's third Deliver Us book and your Antidote.

Macky LMAO! Okay its sorted then.. You start at the bottom, I'll take the top..we take our time, meet in the middle, exchange a few pleasantries. You know, like I'll give you shoe lace untying tips...you tell me all the top secret stuff about what you and Lynn have planned next.. That sort of stuff, lol... and then we'll get back to the nitty gritty with 'Rope Boy!' What do you think? Its a plan.... ;)

Nic Hi Jack, it's great friending you on GR and I look forward to chatting books with you. I just finished Don't and absolutely loved it. I was excited to see on your blog that you are working on a sequel and also a collaboration with Lynn Kelling! I will be keeping an eye out for release dates!


Lisa Arbitrary - AttentionIsArbitrary M/M Blog I'm super glad you invited me, thanks Jack. Your writing has completely captivated me. I'm on pins and needles for more :)

Tara Quan Hi there. Thanks for friending me! It's nice seeing other AW folk on Goodreads. It looks like we're in a lot of the same groups ;-).


message 3: by Rach

Rach Thank you so much for the friend invite. I don't think you are a pathetic author. I think I have stars in my eyes that an author has added me

Although I am slightly embarrassed by my pathetic review after you liked it It is not that you are an author but that you are THE AUTHOR!!! I was thinking aggghhhh why didn't I do a better job of it!

About my question with the friend request I was 'flagged' as in some lovely person on GR's thought I had inappropriate m/m pics posted on my profile so they pressed the FLAG button!!

What can I say I love ALL THINGS m/m! I don't see anything wrong with sharing my love and obsession (TMI I know)



a fellow Brit :) I really look forward to the next book in the series- the darker the better for me please

(sorry for the essay I get verbal diarrhoea on GR's and my sarcastic sense of humour also comes out- please forgive me I never mean to offend though)


message 2: by Jack

Jack Pyke You're welcome for the friend request! And I've got to stop looking at that Giff... :)

On the sequel, I've handed the script over to the publishers. It's completed, it just needs to go through editing and production. I'm roughly saying a few months, but I've had no set date yet. As soon as I know, I'll post to let you know.

Thank you for asking! In the mean time, I'm looking forward to catching more of your reviews.

:)


Amanda Thanks for the friend request! And I figured the gif fit since Gray IS a sexy bastard ;). Any hints on when the next book will be out?
