I ended up becoming quickly engrossed in [The Fifteenth of June] and loved it! . . . It’s a raw, but realistic look into human nature and relationships, but it will make you laugh out loud, too!

While the plot follows a deceptively simple story line . . . [The Fifteenth of June] is richly layered in questions of identity, familial bonds, and the propensity for individuals to change direction and forage a new fate.

. . . since it’s such a well-written book, the author is able to make you empathize with this sad human being. And then, just when you are as disgusted as you can be with Drew, things change and you start rooting for him. . . . The Fifteenth of June is definitely a strong debut novel and I look forward to reading more from Mr. Jones!

My favorite part of writing The Fifteenth of June was creating the characters—they’re flawed, haunted, quirky, vulgar, relatable, and amusing at times. And I enjoyed every moment of inventing dialogue between them.
I captured some of my favorite quotes from six of the main characters and organized them below as plain text, click to tweet buttons, and images that can be easily shared to Pinterest.
