A Plug for a Pal

James J. Cudney IV is a fellow blogger/writer I very much admire—not only for his writing talent, but for his personableness (yes, it’s a word, LOL) and support—but for his commitment to his craft.  He’s currently doing a blog tour for his latest book and I felt compelled to jump on the bandwagon and provide a plug.

His new offering is Hiding Cracked Glass and it is available for pre-sale soon and will be officially published early October 2020.  For those not in the know, it’s the sequel to the family drama Watching Glass Shatter.  I’m stealing a bit of the blurb from Goodreads (I hope you don’t mind, Jay):

The wealthy Glass family lost its patriarch, Benjamin Glass, sooner than expected. Benjamin’s widow, Olivia, and her 5 sons each react to his death in their own way while preparing for the reading of his will. Olivia receives a very unexpected confession from her late husband about one of their sons that could shatter the whole family.

Intrigued?  I certainly am.  The sequel sounds no less riveting . . .

An ominous blackmail letter appears at an inopportune moment. The recipient’s name is accidentally blurred out upon arrival. Which member of the Glass family is the ruthless missive meant for?  In the powerful sequel to Watching Glass Shatter, Olivia is the first to read the nasty threat and assumes it’s meant for her. When the mysterious letter falls into the wrong hands and is read aloud, it throws the entire Glass family into an inescapable trajectory of self-question.

I can’t wait!  If you haven’t read Watching Glass Shatter—or Father Figure or any of Jay’s Braxton Campus mysteries—I heartily recommend you do.  You won’t be disappointed.  Every book is a solid, absorbing read (the mysteries being lighter and quite entertaining).

WPJayABesides being an author and blogger, Jay’s also a reader and reviewer, genealogist and researcher, and thinker.   Can you spell p-r-o-l-i-f-i-c?

Here a Blog, There a Blog . . . but Who Has a G-R-E-A-T Blog?

Jay (James J. Cudney IV) that’s who.

If you’re thinking of starting a blog or have one going and are wondering how to make it more effective and successful, check out Jay’s 365 Daily Challenge / This is my Truth Now.

https://thisismytruthnow.com     https://jamesjcudney.com

Every day, he writes a post based upon a word.  Since March 2017, he’s posted “a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future.  365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life”.  Love it!  Talk about focus (I yearn for the day I’m free of the 9-to-5 and can apply the same commitment).

I’ve been following Jay for a wee while and admire the energy and output.  (I have to ask: do you sleep, my friend?)  Not only does Jay have a cool and very well organized blog—clean and crisp, and easy to navigate—he has a debut novel (look for it on Amazon).

Watching Glass Shatter, which is a well-crafted, character-driven family saga, has been receiving a whack-load of fantastic reviews (I’m envious).  If you’re writing a book or plan to, check out his book/blog tour; this is the way to go.  Interviews, reviews, and giveaways are a definite must nowadays; he has these covered and then some.

Here’s to a successful tour, Jay . . . and to providing inspiration to fellow aspiring and established bloggers and writers.
