Alright I admit I am a bit obsessive about my favorite authors. I buy both the print and digital versions of their books – well, the one’s I really, really like. So of course I have both versions of Joanne DeMaio’s first book, Whole Latte Life and I’ve read both.
Her second novel – Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans – was released last Monday (March 11th) and I immediately ordered the e-book and placed the print version in my Amazon cart, to order in a week or two. Yeah right! It took me less than half an hour to fast-track that plan. I placed the order.
I read the first chapter of Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans using my Kindle app. and knew that I could go any further. I had to wait for the paperback. I needed to hold the story in my hands. Yes, I’m eccentric that way.
It arrived seconds ago and here I go. I’ll be riding along with Maris Carrington, Eva, Madison and the other characters as they share their lives in 314 pages. I have no doubt that Joanne is going to WOW me again – make me unearth skeletons, examine my life, reassess my dreams, look at my relationships in a new way and redesign how I want to live.
So which version did you buy/are you going to buy – print or digital? Oh what the heck, why not take a walk on the eccentric side and buy both.
Today, I’m sending Joanne love, congratulations and best wishes for readership, awards and the #1 spot of every list her book could possibly qualify for. I’m betting Blue Jeans and Coffee Beans surpasses the response to Whole Latte Life.
Go Joanne. Go Joanne. Go Joanne. I want to be just like you when I grow up.
