Jon Blackwell, a career chaser as a professional musician who shifted to writing novels, has completed his new book “Smokey Jack and the Colonel”: a character-driven story of Smokey Jack, a Jack Russell pup, and his riveting deeds of fighting dangers that reek of dread and evil together with his peers.

Author Blackwell presents a series of gripping circumstances that challenge the characters, testing their survival instincts for good measure: “It was too dark. The Colonel couldn’t be sure of what he was seeing. But it’d looked like … a hand. A sudden certainty coursed through the Colonel as he hopped over the fence and steeled his nerves for a confrontation as he recognized that the General was in what he considered ‘protection mode.’ And the Colonel could only think of one reason he’d behave like that. After all, as far as he could tell, Lily was the only person who’d really had any contact with the dog this summer, so naturally, he considered her his favorite and would fight to protect her. The Colonel admired that, but he still had to set the dog straight so he could get her to the hospital, if what he’d seen wasn’t just a trick of the moonlight and an old man seeing what he wanted to see—Lily, alive and safe.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jon Blackwell’s enthralling tale is a highly pivotal and magnanimous reflection of a dog’s life, and lets readers feel the suspense as Smokey Jack proves his chivalry in dealing with threats and disasters.

Readers who wish to experience this masterful work can purchase “Smokey Jack and the Colonel” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
