Between now and print day, the entire new book will be offered to read for free as it's produced week by week, with the latest finished pages going up each Sunday night.
The new story, set over 24 hours, features much of the original cast as they become involved in the largest drugs deal Alleyton has ever seen. Authored and illustrated by Jason Wilson, he is again assisted by his father, convicted drug dealer Tony Spencer, as Crime Consultant.
Jason will also be telling the tale of the book's production by including a 'Making of' section on the home page from this Sunday which will document the making of the book, which he hopes will prove encouragement to many future writers and artists who aspire to self publish.
On publication, Smuggling Vacation courted some controversy from some MPs who argued it was a guide to smuggling drugs -- even tho0ugh the main characters proved hopelessly inept when they unexpectedly found a trove of illegal drugs on a Spanish beach. Jason also said being raised by one of the Midland’s most notorious criminals was a traumatic experience, and told the Sunday Mercury he did not want his book to make the criminals look like heroes.
