The Demise of Foxy Jack (AXP1): From The Pen Of Foxy Jack

My end of days is near. I can feel it. The Grim Reaper is just around the corner of my every aged turn. I can hear her seductive siren song calling to me. I might be exaggerating slightly. I’m known to have a flair for the dramatic.

I will not apologize for the life I have led. I have enjoyed great joys and felt deep sorrows. I have loved and been loved. I broke a dear heart once, and had mine irrevocably broken in return. I have ended some lives by my own hand. Many have died at my word. I don’t know why I have been allowed to live. It appears that fortune truly favors the foolish.

But for a choice or two, the turn of a key in a different lock, or a path in the road not taken, I could have been a different soul. Upon my death I hope that I am not judged too harshly. To that end, I have decided to put my life, and the circumstances that surrounded it to paper. I have a case to compile for my judgment day.

I have a story to tell.

The Demise of Foxy Jack is the first novella in the Adventures of the X Pirates series. Amazon readers have made A Murder of Crows, the prolog to these tales, an Amazon best seller in both the Fantasy and Action Adventure categories.

This installment will tell us how a seafaring wanderer discovered an island and founded a town he never wanted to be a part of and how a once purposely lost orphan went from little known actor, to master criminal, to reluctant hero. There’s a traveling troupe of performers, a gang of clever grifters, a sect of stealthy spies, and we’ll learn what happen when Karma, and Destiny join these dark pirate rogueries.

The Demise of Foxy Jack returns you to an all animal world full of epic pirate fantasy, where nothing is what it seems, and everything is suspect. A world where both heroes and villains have a tortured past and every twist and turn tests their resolve. As told by Foxy Jack himself this is a tale of daring choices made, difficult paths taken, great love won and lost, and it’s your next port of call in the Adventures of the X Pirates.

“The Demise of Foxy Jack is a fantasy world where the characters are surprising at every turn. it was a pleasurable read, one that allows you to take time out from our hectic, mad world, and simply enjoy a good adventurous tale.” – Glenn Starkey author of Solomon’s Men
