Hunter S. Jones & An Anonymous English Poet

 September Ends

September Ends is a contemporary romance with erotic and supernatural elements bound together by poetry. It reveals the intricate web of passion and desire which entangles Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The story is told through Liz Snow’s diary, Jack O. Savage’s poetry, and from letters sent across the Atlantic. Traveling throughout the lushness of a summertime in Tennessee and Georgia, September Ends journeys into the elegance of London’s West End and is finally settled in the countryside of Cornwall, England, a decade later.

First book signing at Atlanta's SPA SYDELL Midtown

The novel SEPTEMBER ENDS has been a remarkable journey for me this year, in so many ways. It was a creative outlet during a time of crises and personal struggles. It has become a catalyst for friendships and business partnerships that I never expected. Thank you to the anonymous English poet for introducing me to the world of artistic collaboration. (Special note: my first book signing at Spa Sydell's Midtown Atlanta location where I sold twice as many books as had been planned. The event lead to four tentative book signings in Georgia and three other states across the Southeast. Awesome!) Thank you for dear life long friends and fantastic new friends! When Tennessee Williams wrote of "The kindness of strangers." he had to know personally how very true that line was for a writer's life, and how very true it remains. I would also like to thank everyone that has taken the time to read and review SEPTEMBER ENDS. Your support has taken me by surprise and each of your comments are invaluable. Here's a few quotes from reviewers on Amazon:

 "SEPTEMBER ENDS is a story of love, loss and survival"
"A Work of Art"
"A Rare Diamond"
"This is the stuff legends are truly made of" 

For those of you who haven't read this beautiful little book, following is an introduction to the three main characters: Liz Snow, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. The book is currently available on Kindle for 99 cents to make it more accessible for book clubs, and it is also available as a paperback on Amazon. It would make an great holiday gift for the readers in your life. Here's Liz, Pete and Jack...


I am Liz Snow, Elizabeth October Snow, from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Actually I’m from a small town in north Georgia called LaFayette. My grandfather died suddenly when I was young, then I saw my only brother die in a useless traffic accident. So, you see, I’m not your typical girl. Years of anti-depressants, alcohol and bad relationships have damaged me emotionally. I hide myself in my career as a software executive. I never really knew what love was until meeting Peter William Hendrix III of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Or at least that’s what I thought until Pete’s betrayal.


I’m successful, some say handsome, attorney Pete Hendrix of the firm Hendrix, Hendrix & Smith in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. I attended undergrad at Vanderbilt University, graduated law school with honors and returned to Chattanooga to run the family law firm. I live the life my mother always wanted for me. As often as possible, go to my cabin on Walden Ridge. There, I swim in the clear, cool water from the cave, read and spend time in solitude looking onto the scenic Sequatchie Valley, the sacred hunting grounds of the Cherokee Nation before the Trail of Tears. My life is structured and secure. But, I never expected to meet a girl like Liz Snow. I loved Liz with my heart and soul. Then, she discovered my secret.


English poet, novelist, and founder member of The Renaissance Bards trio of spoken word artists, Jack O Savage leapt to prominence on being expelled from Jesus College, Oxford for allegedly plotting an arson attack on the college in which he supposedly planned to 'raise English successist complacency to its foundations', though no charges were ever brought against him. The Sun tabloid newspaper ran a story proclaiming POSH POET GETS CHOP referring to Savage's 'chopper protest' in which he was arrested for 'leaping atop a 17th century oak refectory table and lewdly flaunting his generous masculinity' at a formal disciplinary hearing, a gesture which he later repeated in public and which subsequently went viral on YouTube, receiving over 100 million hits in under two hours.

2013. Literally, the best and worst of times. A year I could've done without. But, also a year in which I have meet--virtually and personally--some of the best and most inspiring people I have ever known. I have worked with music and entertainment legends and soon-to-be legends on my ExpatsPost blog. My books have found an audience, too. Moon Rose Publishing has connected me with a sisterhood of authors that can truly be compared to a sorority. 

Thank you again for your support. Look for the follow up to SEPTEMBER ENDS in 2014, maybe a new Happily Ever After from me, and possibly a weird, wonderful and wacked out follow up to Fables. Watch this space. In the meantime, have a safe and happy Holiday Season everyone. Cheers!
