Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Usually a whining dog, who lacks the empathy to understand she can wait another hour to eat breakfast, or the necessary skill sets to effectively use indoor plumbing. Seriously though, it's not knowing what lies ahead each day. My favorite books and movies are the ones I can't predict the outcome. I love the plot's twists and turns. If everyday were a carbon copy and easily predictable, I'd probably mount a flag to my bedpost, rename it Joeland, and stay there all day. Can you tell I'm not fond of schedules? But, we still gotta have 'em! I'll just chose loosely formatted, open-ended routines with lots of room for variables.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Erradicating world hunger, promoting world peace, and eliminating social injustices across the globe. Oh, wait, this isn't a beauty pageant, is it? Thank God. Somebody might request a body of proof for my alleged altruistic works. I still have a day job, so at least 40-60 hours a week go there. Kids and family life make up the majority of the rest, with school activities, sports, and all of the stuff that's part and parcel with being a dad and a husband!

Smashwords book reviews by Joseph S. Davis

  • Alpha Omega on Sep. 19, 2014

    Alpha Omega was a fun read! It had lots of twists and turns that kept me guessing how things would play out. I don't know about you, but I hate to know how a story ends before I get to the conclusion. Alpha Omega will keep you guessing! The author did a great job on interspersing humor throughout the book, too. Give it a try, you'll like it.
  • Darkness Once More (Archie Lemons #1) on Oct. 27, 2014

    I found Stroke of Genius by accident, and decided to start with the first book in the series. Archie Lemons is one of the more unique characters I've come across. As unusual as he is, he's completely believable and Grant did a great job making me want to read on and learn who this guy is. The storyline never had a dull moment. I burned through it and can't wait to read the other two books in the series. To top that off, it's free. I'd gladly pay to keep reading Grant's stuff. Great job and thanks for a fun read!
