Losing it pb cBlurb

Bliss Edwards is determined to lose it…her virginity, that is. Saddled with the burden of being the only one of her friends still possessing the “virgin” moniker, she decides to engage in a one-night-stand with a stranger she meets at a bar.  When she’s got said stranger in bed, though, nerves take over and she kicks him out in the most embarrassing way possible.

 

Cut to the first day of the new semester, and who should her young, hot new theatre professor be but the sexy man she left in her bed eight hours before. Cue most uncomfortable class ever. Now she and the irresistible professor must work together on a play while she tries to keep her hands off of him, fends off advances from her previously platonic best friend, and figures out what to do with her life post-college. Oh the joyous, completely not-awkward life of a 20-something.  Yeah, right.

Available now in eBook!

WELCOME JODI!!

I’ve been waiting for JUST DOWN THE ROAD to hit the stands for months.  When I was writing it, the story flew.  Harmony, Texas, is a town I’ve lived in for a while but this time the characters new and old danced off the pages as fast as I could type.  I love that the readers go on this adventure with me and this time I promise to keep them up.
My story opens with a rancher named Tinch Turner who is grieving the loss of his wife and best friend the only way he knows how, but working too hard and fighting just as hard.  He’s lost the light in his world and sees himself as just waiting to take his last breath.  Only problem is, he runs into is a doctor who sees her job as fighting to keep people alive, even him.
Doctor Addison Spencer moves in just down the road from him and before either realize it they both become involved in the same cause.  One little boy pulls them together and makes them both forget their own problems because his needs are so great.
I’d like to welcome you to step into my town, Harmony, Texas, and get to know the people.  The streets of Harmony, the ranches and farms around, the vast open land that molds a special kind of people, all form together in my head as real as a road map.  My characters, spurs and all, step into my imagination, “have a set” and tell me their stories.  They are as real to me as family and friends and they’ll come alive to you also.
Who knows, when you finish the book, you might just feel like you have another home town.
Remember, always be kind to one another, and enjoy my newest story,
Jodi Thomas

GIVEAWAY AND VISIT WITH JOSEPH DEVON,AUTHOR OF “PROBABILITY ANGELS”..

NURTURE YOUR BOOKS AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS….

JOSEPH DEVON!! 

MEET JOSEPH DEVON!! 

Good morning and welcome to My Book Addiction and More today!!

MBA&M: Tell our readers a few tidbits about yourself?

JOSEPH: I was born in raised in New Jersey, went to college in Atlanta, and then have lived in New York ever since. I love cooking and photography. I’m an avid television watcher. I worked at the Ground Zero recovery site after 9/11 and then as a nanny for five years. I like scotch. Also? I just decided I really like the word tidbit.

 

MBA&M: What made you decide to write “Probability Angels”?

JOSEPH: A few years ago I decided that my writing was getting too predictable and felt forced. So I decided to do a writing project where I wrote a new short story every two weeks for a year. 26 Stories in 52 Weeks is the catchy name I made up. Anyway, the first part of Probability Angels was one of those short stories. As soon as I finished it I knew I could get a lot more out of the world I had created and I continued pushing it and out popped a book.

 

MBA&M: Where did the idea of “Probability Angels” come from?

JOSEPH: As I said, I was doing this crazy writing project where I needed a new short story every two weeks. Which was madness. I didn’t have time to be picky with what I was writing, I usually had to go with whatever my first idea was in order to have it finished by my deadline. My initial thoughts when I wrote the short story that grew into Probability Angels were of a man in a tuxedo at a wedding making a deal with the devil. But then I started wondering if it would be possible to make the devil into a good guy. It seemed like fun to try and turn that concept on its head. Well out of that came the notion that often our strengths and our moments of growth come out of the bad times in our lives. So what if this devil character was bringing on bad moments but for a good purpose? In a nut shell that’s what the Probability Angels do. And the man in the tuxedo turned into Matthew, the main character.

MBA&M: What where some of the challenges in writing “Probability Angels”?

JOSEPH: In these books I have characters that can travel instantly to anywhere in the world, so keeping my time zones straight was beyond tricky. I also tried to draw from a lot of different cultures, since they’re basically immortals I got to make up any character back story I wanted and still have them running around in the present day. That part was fun but it was a double edged sword because I wanted to get it right so I had to read up on Japanese culture and ancient Rome, for example, in order to make sure I was flavoring my characters correctly.

 

MBA&M: Who is your “real life” hero/heroes? Why?

JOSEPH: There are a lot of them. I like anyone who makes a stand for what they believe in or has the courage to create something and show it to the world. Trust me, that’s not easy. So I guess I try and find heroes in the everyday people around me…or does that sound cheesy?

 

MBA&M: What is on your “To Be Read” pile?

 JOSEPH: I’m currently reading even more about ancient Rome in order to prepare for the third book in this series. After that I have a history of clothes to read.

 

MBA&M:  If you could step into a book and that world where would it be? Why?

JOSEPH: God there are so many. I’d love to be in any world where I could have an adventure that isn’t possible in this one. The Narnia books or Tolkien or something along those lines. If I had to pick one, though? I guess I’d go with Harry Potter, because I’d get to have the adventure but then come back to New York City. I’d hate to be stuck in a world without this place in it.

 

MBA&M: What is one of your biggest regrets? Why?

JOSEPH: Tough question. I think most of my regrets involve women. If you have to ask why you might need to get out more. 🙂

 

MBA&M: Please tell our readers where to find you and where “Probability Angels” can be found?

JOSEPH: All my work can be found at josephdevon.com and Probability Angels is available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats as well as in most every other e-reader’s store.

Joseph, would you like to add anything else today?

I’d love to tell your readers about the two contests I’m currently running.

Probability Angels by Joseph Devon

Matthew knows that he died twenty years ago. He has, after all, been bouncing around New York city ever since, causing mischief and having fun as a supernatural being. But recently some problems have been cropping up: not only is he hallucinating things in garbage cans, but his mentor doesn’t think he’s working up to his full potential, his best friend can’t offer any solace but drunken confusion, and his wife is dying in Central Park. See, the past twenty years haven’t meant a thing because now it’s time for Matthew to make his second choice and become a tester of humanity. And that’s all before the zombies show up. Come explore the world of Matthew and Epp and see what a samurai from Feudal Japan has to do with the course of modern physics, what a two-thousand year old Roman slave has to do with the summit of Mount Everest, and what a dead man from Brooklyn has to do with the fate of the world.
