For the GRL in San Diego, October 15-18, 2015, today author is Joey James Hook: " Hello there! My name's Joey James Hook. I'm a twenty-five-year old man who lives in many different places. Among my favorite things to do are reading, writing, watching TV, eating ice cream, and listening to loud music. I attended three and a half years of schooling at Western Nevada College.
My passions aside from writing are eating, music - particularly going to shows and rocking out - and going to the beach. My biggest inspirations are the bands Dear Silence, Burn Halo, Eighteen Visions, Atreyu, Bleeding Through, Papa Roach, Asking Alexandria, A Skylit Drive and, more than any other, Avenged Sevenfold. My first novel has been dedicated to the loving memory of Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan (RIP, February 10th, 1981 to December 28, 2009).
I am a freelance writer. I have two novels contracted to ebook publishers, Phoenix to Extasy Books, and One Two Three, Shatter to Silver Publishing. I also do write advertisements for two companies called The Content Authority and Interact Media. They both give their employees a broad subject such as men’s watches with specifications to what they want in the article, and ask the writers employed to write engaging, well-researched 300+ word summaries for the product being sold. I have been writing since I was about nine years old, starting with poetry and moving onto fiction."

For Blake, it’s a test of wills and patience—who will accept him, and who will cast him out? Every connection he makes brings him further and further away from his own ever-growing dark thoughts. Maybe someone can even convince him he’s not just a freak.
Devon’s starting to realize how much it’s a growing up experience. He’s away from his best friend in a whole new world, and he’s got a lot to learn.
Riley, the unlikely friend and frat boy, finds himself pulling away from his typical clique—including Dominic, the bully and star quarterback, and gravitating elsewhere. Work, fascination, friendships—needless to say, they’ll never be the same.
