Very Paranormal Book Rave: Attending Author Joy Preble Bio and Giveaway

Attending Author
 Joy Preble is the author of the popular and highly acclaimed Dreaming Anastasiaseries. A former English teacher, Joy grew up in Chicago and is a graduate ofNorthwestern University. She is now a full time writer and lives with her family inTexas, where she has learned to say “y’all” without any hint of irony. A tirelessadvocate for literacy and great books, she is at the center of the all-importantTexas YA scene.

When I was writing THE A-WORD, I was so happy because I was getting to write the sequel to last year's THE SWEET DEAD LIFE and give readers another installment of Jenna and Casey's story. I absolutely love this series, which allows me to explore the big questions of the universe-- life! death! the after life! destiny! kissing!-- alongside first dates, high school football, and Tex Mex cuisine and cowboy boots. So who wouldn't love that, right? And I knew I was going to introduce a new grizzled head honcho angel named Bo Shivers, whose presence was going to be a game changer for all involved. Plus, as hinted at above, Jenna was going to have her first real boyfriend, a cupcake baking football player named Ryan Sloboda, with whom she flirted a bit in the first book. In short, I hope everyone loves reading THE A-WORD as much as I enjoyed writing it!ed writing it!

Hardcover, 272 pages

Jenna Samuels is about to turn fifteen. It's been almost a year since her stoner brother, Casey, bit the dust. Almost a year since he returned as her guardian angel, along with his "angel boss," Amber Velasco, the hot twenty-something former EMT. Almost a year since Casey and Amber used up their one-time-only angel power of flight to save Jenna from the evil Dr. Renfroe, swooping down to catch her as she tumbled off the balcony at the Houston Galleria. In short, a lot of A-word shenanigans and a mostly happy ending.

Except now Casey's begun to wonder why he's still hanging around—not that he minds protecting Jenna. She's a handful, but there's got to be a bigger picture, right? Something to distract him from his on again/off again, doomed relationship with cheerleader Lanie Phelps, who has no idea her boyfriend is, well, dead. After all, he can't use his angel wings anymore. Neither can Amber.

Enter Bo Shivers, Amber's "angel boss"—a mysterious A-word guy Jenna and Casey didn't even know existed. Whiskey-guzzling. Handsome in a grizzled way. Unpredictable. Okay, make that crazy. Bo lost his angel wings in an earthly flight a long, long, long time back—and he's been a thorn in Angel Management's side ever since. But Bo knows something is coming. Something big. Something that was worth forfeiting wings for Jenna... something that might just change everything for everyone.
