What happened to Jude, from Jude’s Law? He was partial owner of the SBC, but isn’t mentioned in any of the other SBC books.
Sorry for any confusion! Jude’s Law and Murphy’s Law were written for Kensington Publishing. The rest of the SBC fighters were written for Berkley. The way contracts are written, publishers have rights to characters/worlds/etc… That makes perfect sense, because a publisher invests a lot of expense in promoting a series. They wouldn’t want to develop a series only to have an author take that series elsewhere. But Kensington was very generous with me, and gave me permission to carry on with my fictionalized “SBC” organization. That said, many of my past characters make cameos in new books. Psst… you might catch a few updated peeks of Jude in the Ultimate Series.
