Release day for Nikki Blue: Source of Trouble!

Adobe Photoshop PDFThe second book in Jack Chaucer’s four-book series is now available all over cyberspace (380 pages, $13.99 paperback, $2.99 e-book). The third book, “Nikki White: Frozen Upside Down,” is expected to be released in late 2016 or early 2017.

Here’s what book blogger Julie Oakley of Hobart, Australia, had to say after reading “Nikki Blue,” the sequel to “Streaks of Blue”

“Wow, this novel is on a completely different path from the first in the series, but luckliy it works. Our protagonist “Nikki” has grown so much through this novel and we get to grow with her, as does the plot. The plot is very ‘now’, it targets some interesting topics that society today is faced with and in my opinion, shows them for exactly what they are! I love the direction this novel has taken, it is engaging and keeps the reader on their toes!

The writing as always is incredible, it draws you in from the very first page and keeps you interested throughout the novel. It is original, controversial, confronting and honest. If I had to pick a fault with this novel, it is that it ended too soon and too suddenly, however it has left me keen for the next book!

An amazing, fast-paced read, definitely one of my favourites this year!”

Book Blurb for “Nikki Blue: Source of Trouble”

Nicole Janicek has survived being shot, but can she overcome the blues of her early 20s?
Nearly four years after foiling a shooting plot at her high school and saving countless lives, Nikki begins a short-lived internship as a newspaper reporter; gets hired as a flak by an organization whose leadership consists of people labeled troublemakers by the Church of Scientology; confronts the source of her nightmares, Thomas Lee Harvey; puts her long-term relationship with Derek Schobell to the test; learns a disturbing secret from her friend, Adam Upton, and considers a high-risk offer to leave the planet forever.
Can this former teenage hero and trailblazer rescue herself from the consequences of her own decisions? Or does every path in front of her lead to trouble?

Today’s massacre in Oregon is the 142nd school shooting since Newtown

That’s 142 school shootings in less than 3 years. Apparently nothing will stop the madness.
