Behold, a rare sight in the world of The Jacket: a time jump. It’s almost as rare as a unicorn, so take it in while you can, folks. When Randy and I originally discussed how this story was going to go, we envisioned it would occur over a long period of time, like months, maybe years. When I got to writing it, that ended up not being the case. I guess it’s due to my style of storytelling being very in the moment and urgent, a by product of being really into spy thrillers and such. But, I’ve managed to throw in some time jumps for the purposes of breathing room and letting the story and characters grow naturally. Volume 2 will have some more, but not too many.
