J. L. Campbell is a frequent visitor to my comment section and may be at yours as well. Joy hails from Jamaica which sounds like absolute paradise when she tells about it. Joy also writes books and she's here today to tell you about her latest which is called Distraction. She also has a contest going on. But enough of me--let's hear directly from the author herself.
You paying attention?
Not only have I hijacked Arlee’s blog, I’m going to whisk you off to Jamaica. Okay, well, not really. Today, I’m gonna detour and talk about writing and friendship. All good stuff. That said, thanks to Arlee for giving me squatter’s rights on this blog.
I’ve found Arlee to be eclectic in his approach to blogging. Check out the sidebar and you’ll find he writes a variety of blogs. I’m like that in terms of my writing. My first book (still unpublished) is young adult fiction, the second action/adventure/romance, and for a while, I stuck with writing romantic suspense. In case you’re wondering, yes, I do have more manuscripts languishing on my hard drive and yes, I cover at least one other genre somewhere in there.
The book I’m touring is about three female friends, who land in a world of trouble because of the choices they make. Distraction is women’s fiction, with one of the strongest themes being friendship. The characters are distinct in their tastes and approach to life, and one particular aspect of their friendship amazes me. We all have our own rules by which we live and yet we find it possible to get along with people who have belief systems and moral values that oppose ours. Ages ago, some wise person who understood human nature, summed up our differences in the phrase variety is the spice of life. I’m fond of saying that the world is an interesting place because we’re all so different.
To find out more about my characters, their friendship and how they end up in a pickle in Distraction, download a complimentary prequel A Baker’s Dozen: Thirteen Steps to Distraction.

Arlee, thanks again for hosting my girls and me.
