Jon LaPoma Finishes First Draft of Latest Novel

Jonathan LaPoma finished the first draft of his latest novel today, which is inspired by a cross-country road trip he took with a friend after graduating college in 2005. The novel is the first book in a loosely-linked series with UNDERSTANDING THE ALACRAN and DEVELOPING MINDS: AN AMERICAN GHOST STORY as books two and three, respectively. The latest novel doesn’t yet have a title.

He hopes to get started on the fourth, and final, book in the series soon.
