‘The Crazy Season’ by Jim Ody | @Jim_Ody_Author @zooloo2008 @QuestionPress | #blogtour #publicationday #teaser

It’s a happy publication day to Jim Ody for his latest book The Crazy Season! For my stop on the blog tour today I have a wee sneak peek to whet your appetite with but first, here is what The Crazy Season is all about. (With thanks to Zoé for the invitation to join the tour and for providing the extract.)

Author : Jim Ody
Title : The Crazy Season
Series : Joel Baxter #1
Pages : 360
Publisher : Question Mark Press
Publication date : May 4, 2021


Joel Baxter is infamous for solving weird and bizarre cases that others avoid. So, when he receives an email from a teenage boy Tim saying his town is cursed, he cannot turn it down.

“…I will more than likely be dead when you read this. There is nothing I can do about it. It’s the curse, and we’ve hit The Crazy Season.” Every 20 years, there are a handful of unexplained teenage deaths and it’s started again.

With the help of his straight-talking friend Melody, they set out to get to the bottom of the alleged curse. Everybody in Black Rock has secrets and nobody wants to speak.

The closer they get to truth the more Joel and Melody realise that their involvement is far from coincidental.


The child was bucking uncontrollably on the front lawn. Grass stains and mud patches were of no concern to her. She growled deeply, out of character. A low, feral and very unchildlike sound forced its way out. Her arms and legs flapped around like they were no longer controlled by the body or mind. Those still close enough could see her eyes roll back into her head, her eyelids flicker and dribble ran down her chin.

This was not a typical Sunday afternoon in this normally quiet slice of suburbia. The looky-loos were forming at a safe distance. Curtains twitched from the curious. 

The world was changing, and this was just another example of how it had spiralled out of control.  

How is that for a teaser? If you’d like to find out more, and of course you do, then you can grab yourself a copy of The Crazy Season right now!

Jim has a very strange sense of humour and is often considered a little odd.  When not writing he will be found playing the drums, watching football and eating chocolate. He lives with his long-suffering wife, three beautiful children and two indignant cats in Swindon, Wiltshire UK.
