Author Jack Remick Sets Date for the Launch Party of Blood, a Camel Press Release
On Jan. 23, 2011, author Jack Remick hosts a launch party for Blood (Camel Press), a novel about a man who seeks redemption for a life steeped in violence. The event takes place at Louisa’s Bakery & Café, 22379 Eastlake Ave E, Seattle, WA, 5-7 pm.

BriefingWire.com, 12/02/2010 - Seattle, WA.—On January 23, 2011, author Jack Remick will host a launch party for his novel, Blood (Camel Press, 286 pp, $17.95, ISBN: 978-1-60381-804-9), which tells the tale of a man who seeks redemption for a life steeped in violence. The event will take place at Louisa’s Bakery & Café, 22379 Eastlake Avenue East, Seattle, WA, from 5-7 p.m.

Author Priscilla Long calls Jack Remick “the Jean Genet of the 21st century.”

“A fascinating novel of a truly unusual character, Blood is hard to put down,” says Small Press Bookwatch.

Ex-mercenary Hank Mitchell gets five years hard time for stealing a tubful of women’s underwear. In prison, Mitch finds the peace he needs to write his own story—a saga of family deception, sexual obsession, and contract killing. Now his time is up and his family wants him back in the killing game …

About the novel, Remick explains, “I inadvertently gathered information for the CIA while in Peru but I have no connections to any clandestine, paramilitary, or espionage units of any kind. I wrote Blood to help a close friend come to grips with his bisexuality. But no characters or situations in Blood are based on any actual people or events. The prison in this novel is a fabrication, although one of my close friends spent two years in a Venezuelan prison for political reasons, and his stories lit up my imagination to the extent that I felt comfortable fictionalizing his experiences. The family situation in Blood is a complete fiction, although every character has an analog.”

Jack Remick co-authored The Weekend Novelist Writes a Mystery, with Robert J. Ray. He has a collection of short fiction, Terminal Weird (Black Heron Press), a novel, The Stolen House (Pig Iron Press) as well as work in The Seattle Five Plus One, an anthology (Pig Iron Press). Deeply engaged in the Seattle writing community, Remick teaches, blogs, and participates in writing sessions at Louisa’s Café where he mentors local writers. Jack’s stories and poems have appeared in national magazines such as Carolina Quarterly, Portland Review, Big Hammer, Café Noir Review, and Northwind. Remick has lived and worked extensively in Latin America. Check out his website at Blood.Camelpress.com.

Blood will be available in Kindle ($5.95) and print editions on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, and Amazon.fr.

Other electronic versions can be purchased on Smashwords or at any of the major online ebook stores.
