Wilmington creator Jason Mott New York Instances greatest vendor
Dutton, a publishing house, has set up Aug. 10, 2021, as the release date of “Hell of a Book,” the fourth best-selling book by author Jason Mott.
The book follows an African-American author who sold out on a recurring tour when police shot a black man in the headlines. Mott, however, has said that the chapters and stories of the book have been on the minds for over a decade.
According to Dutton, “Hell of a Book” weaves three lines of plot. There is this tour and book-in-book, following a young black boy named Soot in a small rural town in the past. Then there’s The Kid, who follows the author around his travels and probably won’t mind.

In a press release, Dutton described the “Hell of a Book” as “a heartbreaking and magical book (which) is fun and only talks about family, parents and children, art, and money.”
Magic, in one way or another, revolves around Mott’s many myths. He made headlines in 2012 when production company Brad Pitt selected his first book, “The Returned,” even before it was released.
“The Returned,” the best-selling New York Times and USA Today newspaper, was set up in the next world when the dead began to return, not as ghosts but as normal, as they were in life. ABC published a series on the book, titled “Resurrecton,” featuring Omar Epps, Frances Fisher and Kurtwood Smith’s “That ’70s Show,” which lasted two seasons.
Some of Mott’s books were “The Wonder of All Things” (2014) in which a young girl has healing powers, and “The Crossing” (2018), a Jewish book established in the world after the plague.
A native of Bolton, Mott attended Cape Fear Community College and obtained a BFA (forgery) and an MFA (poetry) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
