SGN EXCLUSIVE: Jake Biondi releases seventh book in his popular BOYSTOWN series

by MK Scott - SGN Contributing Writer

'It's finally here and I'm so excited,' author Jake Biondi said of his seventh BOYSTOWN book in a press release, which he released on July 7th. 'The fans' wait is over and they can now discover what happened to their favorite characters whose lives were hanging in the balance at the end of the sixth book.'

The seventh book features a cover created by BOYSTOWN designer Anna Crosswell, who is responsible for the recent redesign of all BOYSTOWN book covers. Featuring the image of a casket, the cover of BOYSTOWN Season Seven teases what readers will find inside its pages.

Biondi recently announced a re-launch of his entire book series with an exciting new look.

'It's going to 'wow' readers from coast to coast,' Biondi said of the series' new design. 'I wanted the BOYSTOWN book covers and all the marketing materials to better represent the drama, excitement, and diversity of the BOYSTOWN series. The new covers hint at the story line twists and turns that readers will find within the books' pages.'

Initial reviews of BOYSTOWN Season Seven are very positive.

'Page after page, the reader is confronted with corruption, treachery, and the pure evil that some people are capable of as they seek to control or destroy others.

'Although Biondi appears to have tempered the bitter Ciancio-Mancini dynastical feud primarily through the marriage of two leading family members, it is soon apparent that the festering hatred that the two families have for each other continues to brew under the surface as characters are revealed to have ties to these families that were not previously known. A very entertaining and high energy read by a masterful storyteller,' wrote Roger Ward in his review of the newest BOYSTOWN book. 'The saga is told masterfully through several subplots which include unforeseen twists and turns that will leave the reader stunned and speechless.'

I chatted with Biondi last week via Facebook.

MK Scott: Boystown Season 7 is finally here! What are some key moments in this book?

Jake Biondi: The book begins right where Season Six left off. The resolution of those cliffhangers takes a while, which is part of the reason why this is the longest book in the entire BOYSTOWN series. In addition, fans will immediately notice the presence of a casket on the new book's cover. That should give readers a clue about the twists and turns contained in the new book.

MK: What will make this different from the other six?

JB: I think this is the most emotional book in the series. Fans will learn more about the characters that they love as a particularly sad storyline unfolds. This one is a bit of a tear-jerker.

MK: Tell us about any new characters.

JB: Aiden Carmichael is the book's only new character - and he's one that fans will have a severe reaction to. This is a man who will do anything to get what he wants, except that what he wants isn't revealed until the last few pages of the book. I have a feeling Aiden will be a character that fans love to hate.

MK: I know your dream is to get the series on TV. How is that going?

JB: It's going really well. I'm working with two new TV producers who are themselves huge fans of the book series. That's important because they understand the series well and want to bring it to TV in the most authentic way. The three of us should be able to share some more specific news in the near future.

MK: My Burning Question: Will there be an 8th season and when?

JB: Absolutely. I would imagine that Season Eight will appear around Christmas.

BOYSTOWN Season Seven is available in paperback and all e-book formats. Fans may purchase an autographed copy of BOYSTOWN Season Seven at BoystownTheSeries.com
