Camel Press Releases Blood, a novel about a Career Criminal and Ex-Mercenary Seeking Redemption
Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Blood, a novel by Seattle author Jack Remick about a man who seeks redemption for a life steeped in violence., 1/04/2011 - Seattle, WA.—Camel Press is proud to announce the release of Blood (286 pp, $17.95/paper, $25.95/cloth, ISBNs: 978-1-60381-804-9/978-1-60381-805-6), a novel by Seattle author Jack Remick about a man who seeks redemption for a life steeped in violence.

Blood has been earning extravagant praise from reviewers and other authors alike. “A fascinating novel of a truly unusual character, Blood is hard to put down,” says Small Press Bookwatch.

“I am still tortured with awe because I can’t shake the love story in that gruesome cell,” says Stewart Stern, screenwriter for Rebel Without A Cause and The Ugly American.

“A powerful tale written with total intensity,” says Robert J. Ray, author of the Matt Murdock mysteries. “You won’t be able to put it down.”

“Blood is delightful to read,” says Natalie Goldberg, Author of Writing Down the Bones and Old Friend From Far Away. “It has heart and honesty—fun, too. Full of surprise and the heat and throb of human life.”

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

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
