Has this ever happened to you? You team up with a group of authors to create a character and write a series of books about him, then some months later find that he’s not only updating his own Twitter feed, but is stalking you on the damn thing too? No? Only me? Arse. Was hoping there might be some sort of support group for that…
Anyway, that aside, here are the full book blurbs for the Hiram Grange series, coming later this year.
Book 1: Hiram Grange and the Village of the Damned, by Jake Burrows

Hiram Grange and the Twelve Little Hitlers, by Scott Christian Carr
Hitler has escaped. Twelve of him, to be precise, each cloned from the original, and hiding in the bizarre American underground. Hiram Grange has been tasked with hunting them down. The only problem: he’s hit rock bottom. His worst binge ever – a mad dance with absinthe, opium and depression…

Book 4: Hiram Grange and the Chosen One, by Kevin Lucia
