Who could possibly describe the misery you're about to read better than the narrator himself? From the beginning of the book: "I’m an idiot. That about covers it. I’m also a huge jerk, just a giant bag of worthless matter. After years and years of trying, I’ve finally managed to screw up my life completely. My mom always said not to give up. My dad always said, “Shut up and go to bed.” I tried to go with my mom’s advice on this one, but I still completely ruined my life. This is not one of those stories where the guy thinks things are bad and then they get better. I’m not going to learn some big lesson at the end or realize the profound truth of living. Don’t believe me? Skip to the last page and read. Go ahead. I’ll wait. Dare to be different and read the last page. There you go. See? There is no hope for this story, no happy ending. If you can’t handle seeing a pretty decent guy destroy everything and everyone around him because of his own stupidity, stop reading now. I won’t be offended. But, if you like that kind of thing because deep down you’re a sadist, then let’s keep on keeping on. This is the story of how I met the world’s most perfect girl, and how I royally messed it up. Enjoy."

Born in a ditch beside a busy highway, John Dawson Jackson never knew his parents. Taken in by wealthy philanthropists Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Elmo Jackson, he was trained from the age of two in classical piano. A horrible accident left his arm damaged, ending his dream before it began. He was forced to undertake control of his adopted father's oil business, a company that allowed him to travel the globe and explore the far reaches of civilization. As he studied the ancient carvings of the Mesopotamians, he realized just how much of our history has been covered up by powerful people. These findings have been collected into his new novel The Relics. Or maybe this isn't true. Maybe this is true: John Dawson Jackson is an independent author based out of the Knoxville, TN area who has a broad spectrum of interests. Predominantly, his novels integrate the genres of fantasy, history, and horror with intriguing mind bending qualities. Most of his works are based in the supernatural and exist within the same universe--a sometimes frightening, but always exhilarating place where Jackson enjoys playing with the interconnectivity of what is real, myth, and rumor.
