Hey, kids, the countdown has begun to the publication of my new novel, Alias Hook, in the UK! On May 1st, my novel will be available from the intrepid small press, Snowbooks, at bookstores across the UK and online.
(Over at The Book Depository, you can pre-order it for $US, with free shipping worldwide.)
Alias Hook presents an alternative view of Peter Pan and the Neverland from the caustic perspective of Captain James Hook, it's prisoner. When a grown woman from a very different era dreams herself to the Neverland in defiance of the boy's rules, the stage is set for a time-traveling love story about male and female, love and war, and the delicate art of growing up.
Laurie King calls Alias Hook a "rich and darkly humorous tale of a man trapped in a child's nightmare. Jensen ably explores the power of storytelling, the cruelty of imagination, and the redemptive possibilities of love. A delicious and thought-provoking read."
For the story so far, read about my inspiration for writing the novel, get a sneak preview of my map of Neverland, and catch up with my illustrated History of Captain Hook on stage, screen, and on the page.
I'm so excited about this book, I've even created an Alias Hook Facebook page. (Not easy for a card-carrying Luddite like moi.) For more info, cool illustrations, and updates, check it out!
