Local writer/Mercury freelancer/my pal Jamie S. Rich has a handful of novels and comics under his belt—most recently, the Spellcheckers series, out from Oni Press—and he's just begun serializing his newest novel, Bobby Pins & Mary James. You can read the first 40 or so pages right over here. It's about a girl who works at a small comics publisher—territory Rich, a former editor-in-chief at Oni, has some experience with.
Jamie's also made a Spotify playlist for the book—I like it when authors do that. It's here.
