ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Novel release and celebration giveaway - Joy Campbell's publishing up a Jamaican storm!

It is my pleasure to tell you about Joy Campbell's fourth novel, Hardware. I'm familiar with Joy's writing  and some of her novels as she often publishes extracts on RomanticFridayWriters to suit the theme of the week.  Her writing has a unique Jamaican flavour, with a big dollop of hot Jamacian culture.

I do love books where I can learn about an exotic culture while following a red-hot story. Do yourself a favour, read the blurb then decide if this is a book you'd enjoy reading.


Camille Moyston has managed to put the nightmare of a violent attack behind her. Having forged a safe, predictable life, the last thing she needs is a cliché, oversexed Jamaican male expressing interest.


For Quinn Mayhew, life is too good to waste time chasing a haughty, irritable woman who is too cautious to accept him for the man he is, but somehow she symbolizes everything he desires in his future.

When Camille's inner fortress finally starts to crumble, Quinn is arrested for murder and everything changes...


Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense/Mystery
Book Length: Plus Novel
Word Count: 93,188
Pages: 340


You can buy it here from Wild Child Publishing. Joy has several other novels published. Check out her website sidebar for more details.
