#5: JD Ruskin’s Finding Matt Blog Party: Thanks!

December 7, 2014


Thank you for joining me today as I fumbled through my first blog release party. I hope I’ve piqued your interest in Finding Matt. Once last time, here’s the cover and blurb.

Finding Matt


Blurb: When six-year-old Matt Wilson and his Shih Tzu, Pixie, step out of the Stanton Community Hospital and disappear, his desperate parents convince Jaron Greenberg, a local pet psychic, to aid the police in the search. Jaron specializes in finding lost kitties and fixing problem pooches. He isn’t prepared for a case with so much at stake. And as soon as he starts, the abilities he’s had since childhood begin changing and growing in unexpected ways.

Paulo Silva is a veteran detective new to the small town of Stanton. As the low man on the totem pole at Stanton PD, he isn’t happy when the chief assigns him to babysit the pet psychic instead of actively working the missing child case. As Jaron uncovers clues, Paulo starts to wonder if he might be the real thing. Or maybe it’s just his testosterone reacting to what he’s sure is mutual attraction.

    Thanks for sharing your stories and excerpt. Finding Matt sounds like a good read and i will definitely visit your website for your free christmas story.

  2. Susan says:

    What is your favorite genre to write? Paranormal is different from contemporary!

  3. Denise Dechene says:

    Is there any one you would like to corroborate with

  4. Trix says:

    Who is your favorite Muppet and why?

  5. jdruskin says:

    @Susan You’re right that Contemporary and Paranormal are very different. Of the ideas bouncing in my head, more of them are contemporary, but I hope to write some follow up Pet Psychic books if there’s an interest. Finding Matt is a standalone, but I’ve got ideas for more adventures. I still consider myself a newbie, so Finding Matt was a great opportunity to try to write more action scenes than I had in When One Door Opens.

  6. jdruskin says:

    @Denise There are a lot of great writers in M/M, but my strongest hope is to collaborate one day with my beta reader. She isn’t published yet, but she’s a very talented writer.

  7. Susan says:

    I hope you do write more paranormal, as it is my favorite!

  8. jdruskin says:

    @Trix Can I pick two? Statler and Waldorf, because I always loved when they heckled the other muppets/guests from the balcony. Why? Because clearly, I am a horrible person.

  9. Jen CW says:

    What kind of books do you read when you get a chance?

  10. JJ says:

    Would you call yourself a dog person or a cat person?

  11. Carolyn says:

    That was a fun blog party. Thank you. Even if you hadn’t been doing the giveaway with the question, I think that was a fun way to get some interaction going other than just having the blog post to comment on.

    My question is about Finding Matt. What was the easiest thing about the story to write? And what was the most difficult?

  12. jdruskin says:

    @Carolyn Action scenes were the hardest for me to write in Finding Matt. My first book was about an agoraphobic, so he didn’t leave the house a lot. The easiest part writing Finding Matt was describing the dogs interactions. I had an Old English Sheepdog as a child who acted just like Bear, loyal, loving, and protective.

  13. jdruskin says:

    @Jen CW I am a voracious reader of M/M, which probably explains why it takes me so long to write books. My favorites tend to be mysteries and paranormal.

  14. jdruskin says:

    @JJ I would call myself a dog person, but my family has had cats and dogs. Cats are wonderful once you accept that you are not the owner but the willing slave.

  15. Sarah Brady says:

    Good Job on your Blog Party. I’ll be looking for the free story and I hope you’ll visit our Dreamspinner blog party in early January for the release of Sweet Fire. You should totally write more suspense-type stories. This one is really good.
