The Wrong David, my first published work!
It’s official. I am a published author now, albeit self-published, but published nonetheless. I promise to decide on a pen name one day. For now, I’m still Wojo.

ABOUT THE WRONG DAVID
The Wrong David is the story of David, who has never really felt at home in the world. He’s awkward and cynical, and stumbles through life medicating himself with alcohol and cigarettes.
His only friend is his oldest buddy from high school, Brian, who is handsome, out-going, and loved by all. Brian has always taken David under his wing and appointed David as CFO of his wine company.
They meet up in Marseilles to tour vineyards and source new wines. There, David indulges in his most powerful vice of all, Brian’s wife, Vanessa.
Vanessa is a goddess in David’s eyes. She is the only thing that makes him want to be part of the world, but he has never shared his secret with anyone.
As the threesome drink themselves through The French Riviera, David is losing his ability to hide his feelings.
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY
I wrote this story three or four years ago. The Hubs was out of town and I was getting my Eurochannel fix when this unbelievably romantic French video came on and sparked the whole story.
I opened a bottle of Cabernet and wrote through the small hours of the morning.
Since that night, poor David has been buried in my computer files. A few months ago, I decided it was time to introduce him to the world. I sent the story to my editor and then to Kindle Singles.
My pride winced when I never heard back from Kindle Singles. I didn’t know if I should wait for a rejection email, or if they were too busy to even send one. Come to find out, getting into Kindle Singles is kind of a big deal. At the time, I was also switching all of my devices and computers from Windows to Mac OS X, so my ego likes to think maybe the email was lost in the shuffle and Kindle Singles didn’t even receive it.
My back-up plan was to use The Wrong David as a test book. I have been working on a series called The Sculptor of New Hope that I plan to publish within the next few years, and I wanted to check out this self-publish biz for real. I was told many horror stories about self publishing, so I wanted to experience the whole process. I’m the type of girl who learns by doing. The Wrong David has become my Amazon Kindle guinea pig.
