For J.J. Francesco, the seeds of writing were planted with entering Reading Rainbow story contests as a young child. In the coming years, his writing often took unique forms – from making up his own Pokemon to imagining soap opera storylines in his head based off of anime characters. As a teenager, the writing moved to the page, starting with fanfiction, then serialized character dramas, and ultimately resulting in his first novels and short stories. “Mirror, Mirror,” was his first publication in the award-winning college literary magazine Limited Editions, with “Untitled Short Film” following in the next annual issue. Literary magazine Transient, published a third short story, “After School.” In 2014, J.J. published his debut novel, “Blood Chain,” through Rivershore Books. He also serves on the staff of the hit website, NewReleaseTuesday. J.J. lives in Philadelphia with his family.

Simply Awesome! It's got a serial murder, family values, a strong female lead character, and a little bit of Catholicism. Anyone who loves a thrilling crime story is going to love this. Julie is the lead detective on the hunt for a serial killer with a signature. What's his signature? The person who found his last victim is his next target--the next link in the Blood Chain! Strap yourself in for a wild ride that I finished in two sittings. Personally, I loved the attitude of the killer! :)
There were no grammatical errors, the writing style is tight. The story is fast paced and interesting. The characters are well developed and believable. Flow is good and there are no slow points, even with the use of flashbacks.
The only thing I found that some may think is a "negative": The story at times becomes a little "preachy" with regard to religion, but not overly as to offend readers of another faith--- it is there to develop the characters. Mr. Francesco has written a brilliant work with this debut novel, and is sure to have an exciting writing career!
