SHOW-OFF AND TELL #19 - Jason Parent - What Hides Within

#19 in the Show-Off and Tell feature is a “look what you could win” feature too. The wonderful What Hides Within, by Jason Parent.

Now, when Dead Roses: Five Dark Tales of Twisted Love came out, I did a week-long series of interviews and reviews with the guys from The Dead Roses Crew. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.

This is how I got to know Jason Parent a little bit better and discovered that he is definitely one of the good guys that more people should know and read.

I was expecting a copy of Dead Roses in the post from Evans Light and he had recently just met up with Jason who very graciously signed, and included a copy of What Hides Within in the box that was delivered.

This is my copy:

This was one of those very unexpected arrivals so makes it a little bit more special as well. I am very glad to say that it was the start of a connection and friendship with Jason that I value very highly.

The good thing for you is that you could own one of these signed beauties as well, by going along to the Confessions Birthday Party on Facebook on 4th February!

If you haven’t picked up any of Jason’s books before, then you really need to fix that!

You can buy What Hides Within here:

In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso.

In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator. When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it's harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he's back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that's another story.

When he's not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists in on knot or takes somebody's head off - he misses the appeal). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes.
