Other titles might include

How I Saved the World and Died Trying… Several Times : a Catalogue of Failure

or

My Deaths, and What Happened After : Tale of an Autoscopath.

 

A sequel to You Don’t Know Jack that is set before, during, and after Jack, though not necessarily in that order. Apologies for the vague plot summary below; given the interweaving of the plot with Jack, providing any detail (even the main character’s name) would constitute spoilers. Some people might say “That’s probably why no one does stories like this”, and they’d be right. It makes things much harder for yourself.

 

You know how in every amnesiac story there’s a shadowy group trying to take them down which is also somehow connected with the amnesiac’s past?

Dragonfall shines a light on this shadowy mob, telling the story of that organisation through the eyes of one of their members. From dilapidated beginnings, they build power and recruit new members. They chase down the protagonists of Jack and deal with the book’s aftermath, but notions of right and wrong, victim and perpetrator become murky as history repeats itself.

The world isn’t quite so black and white when you’re the one being watched…

Also there’s car chases, secret underground lairs, warehouse fights, explosions, and jokes about how, even in a team of unstoppable badasses, someone has to arrange the laundry roster.

 

Current Status:

19/3/20: Doing the first major edit, to trim 180,000 words down to 100,000.

Once that is done, there will be a concurrent edit of this and Jack, after which Jack just needs a cover and it’ll be released.
