The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler

Updated on February 19, 2015

I've written four novels, self-published. I am working on the several more. I am promoting my novels, reviewing others, sharing what I know.

The Novel in Development Removed from Hub Pages

In celebration of Novel writing month I participated in writing my second Novel of the Jonas Watcher Series.

The difficulty of writing a series of books is that if you have a number of repetitive characters is including their information for new readers without boring returning readers. The first book does not have this problem, and later books do not suffer as much from the problem because if it is a successful series, then most readers are already familiar with the characters, of the series. New readers will, usually look for earlier books, especially if they like the one they are reading.

During the month I will continue to offer up additional chapters, so if you find you are interested you will be able to read the entire book in pre-edited format. There will be typos, and missed words and perhaps missed elements of the story, because you are getting it as I write it before I reread and edit it. By all means you may make comments and I will respond to all as best as I can. My goal by the end of the month is to have the first draft of the novel completed for my first reread and edit.

If you have not read the first novel it is available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and a number of other onsite locations. The eBook is $1.99.

The unedited version of the second book have been removed from Hub Pages as I have finished it. It has gone through an edit rewrite edit and has gone to Proof. My readers and editors are getting it as I write this..

Background about the series

The Jonas Watcher series takes place circa 1930s. The initial novel is in San Francisco, and that is where most the action will take place. Jonas Watcher is a reluctant Private Investigator with a unique history. The first novel opens with Jonas almost being killed. From there he is caught up in a web of conspiracy, blackmail and murder. To find out more you can visit where you will find a list of novels under development in the Jonas Watcher series. The second novel take place in New Orleans during a controversial time in Louisiana history.

Jonas Watcher: Where to next

What I love about writing a series is that while I am working on one book, I often get ideas for the next in the series.

As "The Case of The Bourbon Street Hustler" is in review:

I have started on "The Case of the Jade Dragon". The story takes place in San Francisco In the 1930s and involves a feud between two Chinese families and an arranged marriage to bring about peace. It involves a reluctant Bride and groom and a clash of traditional values and those of the new world. Jonas is caught in the middle, trying to deliver the bride to her destiny while other factions wish him to fail, even if it includes killing the bride and Jonas.

"The Case of the looking Glass Mirror" will send Jonas down a rabbit hole where he will have to confront his own senses in order to save a little girl and he pet white rabbit, or is it a rabbit at all.

"Where Evil Lurks" is a story about money, inheritance, and Murder!

"The Case of the Bayou Laveau Curse" takes Jonas Watcher back the the bayou's around New Orleans where he must confront a voodoo priestess, zombies, and a lust for gold. He finds himself mixed up in Cajun family feuds and the search for the last will and testament of Marie Laveau.

      While I am writing this novel, I am also looking for a book cover. Noise Trade and Amazon have the cover of my previous book, Jonas Watcher: The Case of the Running Bag. That is the style I am thinking of continuing, but I am open to suggestions.
