5-star love for Nikki Blue in Illinois …

mybooksathickoryHere’s the kind of 5-star review Jack Chaucer loves to read.

Christina Jackson, 20, of Shawneetown, Illinois, posted this on Goodreads on Feb. 7 about “Nikki Blue: Source of Trouble,” the sequel to “Streaks of Blue”:

“This book was a great read. I was overwhelmed with the emotions of the characters. I felt I was a character myself and that I was there experiencing it all. I found it to be enthralling and a very unpredictable sequel. I commend Chaucer and hope to read more by him soon.”

As a side note, Chaucer lived in Freeport, Illinois, from 1991-93. He worked as a sportswriter at the Freeport Journal-Standard newspaper. Good times.

Thanks to my readers for getting this indie author to 100 copies of “Streaks of Blue” sold since its release on Sept. 27th! In the process, we’ve raised $158.95 so far for Newtown families. And with the recent shootings in New Mexico, Colorado and Philadelphia, among others, this book and this topic continue to be extremely relevant.

A special shout-out to Christina Jackson of Shawneetown, Illinois, who won the Christmas giveaway contest on Goodreads. She said she adored the book and has loaned it to a friend. She said she was inspired by the novel and the fact that I once lived in Freeport, Illinois. Go Pretzels! Thanks also to the 690 other Goodreads members who have added “Streaks of Blue” to their shelves!
