South of Imagination and east of Flor de Caña lies Blacktip Island, the setting for Tim W. Jackson’s award-nominated novel, Blacktip Island, as well as the follow-up novel The Secret of Rosalita Flats and for his many short stories.

The Blacktip Times is a weekly record of news and events in the island’s small community of dreamers, reprobates and ne’er-do-wells.

Blacktip Island is fictional. Names, characters, places and incidents are the product of the author’s imagination. Any resemblance to actual people, living or dead, business establishments, events or locales is entirely coincidental.

Closed captions and other considerations for The Blacktip Times are provided by Blacktip Island and The Secret of Rosalita Flats. For more information about the author and his writing, please visit www.timwjackson.com.


Tim W. Jackson’s short fiction has been published in The High Plains Literary Review, Confrontation, the Palo Alto Review, Conceit, The MacGuffin, The Caribbean Writer, Albedo One, and others.
