THE MUSTANG CHRONICLES, VOL. 1: ROCKETT '68 is a literary, lyrical action novel written in the Picaresque tradition. The story unfolds from the perspective of the hero, or villain depending on your opinion about such matters, in the first-person present tense. Gripping, taut prose intertwines with more lyrical passages like a singular wine perfectly paired with its course. For connoisseurs and casual readers alike, this novel serves up a savory, stimulating read. TMC Vol. 1 takes place at the zenith of 1960's America and explores the zeitgeist, counterculture, and music that defined a generation and indelibly influenced American culture. TMC Vol. 1 pays homage to 1960's pop Americana in fascinating detail, all the while moving readers inexorably toward the novel's fantastical conclusion. Keep your eyes peeled and intellect at the ready-deeper meaning, subtlety, nuance, and the opportunity for extracurricular exploration abound. While you may find this intro lacking in what decent folk might call "a satisfactory level of detail," rest assured that this book is best discovered rather than explained, such that the reader remains unencumbered by preconceptions and previously-elaborated details. The novel's episodic style eschews linear constraints, along with the well-worn flat trajectory from introduction to conclusion whence all tangents are neatly tied together and presented dutifully at the end-not unlike a dog presenting a ball to his master for a routine game of fetch. You will find no such mundanity in "The Mustang Chronicles, Vol. 1: Rockett '68." Just read it. You'll be glad you did. Warmest Regards, DSJ

About Daimon Saint Jaimes

DAIMON ST. JAIMES is a newly-published fiction author with big ambitions. He has honed his writing craft for two decades while working as a technical writer, content developer, editor, freelance designer, manager, and consultant. During that time, Mr. St. Jaimes created technical content for companies big and small, including major corporations in the technology, finance, and energy sectors. Some people suspect that he has morphed into a dark-leaning wizard, given his long years spent abusing the Adobe Creative Suite and mercilessly beating it into submission. As a professional writer, Mr. St. Jaimes has published countless thousands of copies, perhaps a million+ by now, of various types of technical content. His published works include product manuals, admin guides, user guides, quick start guides, embedded and browser-based help systems, knowledge base articles, training courses, video and digital media content, websites, marketing content, advertising, public relations content, corporate identity packages, and collaborative UI/UX designs. Mr. St. Jaimes is passionate about good fiction, good writing, and good design. He gets "geeked out" over great content, can be persnickety about pronouns, a pain-in-the-ass about precise meaning, and is happy to finally share his first novel with the world. He has also stated on occasion that Camaros "taste like chicken," and he looks forward to one day actually seeing the back end of one. A Camaro, that is.
