I’m very proud to report that my debut supernatural thriller Personal Effects: Dark Art was covered in today's episode of National Public Radio's Weekend Edition Saturday, by reporter David Greene.

I'm a superfan of NPR, and a member of my local station (WLRN in Miami), so this an incredible honor. If you’re a first-time visitor to my site thanks to the story, welcome! Personal Effects: Dark Art has been praised as “a stellar first” by Publisher’s Weekly (starred review), called “cutting-edge experimental fiction … that may herald the future of modern fiction” by Library Journal, and was covered in The Washington Post. Permit me to give you a tour of the Personal Effects-related content here at JCHutchins.net:

  • More info on Personal Effects: Dark Art, and reviews from novelists and filmmakers such as Gore Verbinski, director of Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring
  • Personal Effects: Sword of Blood, the free groundbreaking podcast-exclusive audionovella prequel to Dark Art
  • Commit Yourself To The Brink, a community-fueled art experiment where fans can become patients in the asylum seen in Personal Effects: Dark Art
  • The groundbreaking “vlurb” video blurb trailers, feauring video endorsements from celeb storytellers such as the creators of Friday the 13th, Final Destination and The Blair Witch Project

I hope you enjoy what you find here at the site. Keep checking back for more, or subscribe to the blog to receive timely announcements and free fiction.
