It’s Joe Cosentino back again to tell you about my other books like my Nicky and Noah comedy mystery series (Lethe Press). In DRAMA QUEEN (Divine Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award for Best Mystery Novel, Best Crime Novel, Best Humorous Novel, and Best Contemporary Novel of 2015) theatre college professors are dropping like stage curtains. With the inept local detectives, it is up to Directing professor, Nicky Abbondanza to use his theatre skills (including playing other people) to solve the murders, while he directs a murder mystery onstage. Complicating matters is Nicky’s crush on Assistant Professor of Acting, handsome Noah Oliver, the prime suspect in the murder. In DRAMA MUSCLE Nicky and Noah have to use their theatre skills to find out why musclemen are dropping like weights in the Physical Education department while Nicky directs the Student Bodybuilding Competition. In DRAMA CRUISE (not released yet), Nicky and Noah go on a cruise to Alaska, and discover why college theatre professors are going overboard like lifeboats while Nicky directs a murder mystery dinner theatre show onboard ship.
My MM romance novellas are IN MY HEART: AN INFATUATION (Divine Magazine Readers’ Choice Award 2nd Place for Best MM Romance) & A SHOOTING STAR, A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS, and THE NAKED PRINCE AND OTHER TALES FROM FAIRYLAND (Dreamspinner Press).
I also have an MM beach series COZZI COVE: BOUNCING BACK and COZZI COVE: MOVING FORWARD taking place on the New Jersey shore (NineStar Press).
My mother asked me, “As a college professor/department head, don’t you have anything better to do than write books at night?” Hm, I wonder if Stephen King’s mother asked him that?” When I complain about my limited time to visit, she says, “Just think how busy you would be if you had a REAL job like your sister’s (an accountant).” Ah, well.
Anyway, if you’d like to purchase any of my romance novels and novellas just go to my web site at http://www.JoeCosentino.weebly.com. I also love to hear from readers, and the web site helps you reach me easily.
It’s time to get back to my writing. What am I writing next? COZZI COVE: STEPPING OUT, the third novel in the Cozzi Cove beach series. And you guessed it, I’m also writing RAGDOLL, the fifth Jana Lane mystery, where Jana stars in a TV murder mystery series and art imitate life.
Do you like TV mystery series? If so, which ones? Post a comment below about it. As I mentioned above, shortly ONE reader who posts the comment on the blog that tickles my inner child star the most will win an e-book of PAPER DOLL!
Thank you for spending time with me today. It was a blast. I hope you read each of the Jana Lane romance mysteries, and let me know if you love Jana as much as I do!
