THIRDS Beyond the Books: Volume 1 by Charlie Cochet: Blog Tour, How to be Dexter J. Daley & Giveaway


Hello all! Thank you so much for joining me here today for another stop on the THIRDS Beyond the Books: Volume 1 blog tour! A huge thank you to Two Chicks Obsessed with Books and Eye Candy for having me here today. We’ve talked a little about how THIRDS Beyond the Books came about, as well as Big Cat Rescue where the royalties of this book are being donated to. We have plenty of fun posts heading this way to celebrate the release of this book. So let’s talk a bit about Dex.

Let’s face it, without Dex there would be no THIRDS. He is the heart and soul of the series. I always have fun writing my characters, but I have to admit that I’ve never had as much fun with a character as I’ve had with Dex. It’s hard not to have fun with Dex. Even when he’s being angsty, angry, or dark, he’s still so much fun to write. But what does it take be Dex? Well, here’s a little graphic guide on how to be Dexter. J. Daley.

paula review

This was the funniest thing I have read in a long time! Charlie came up with some great stories to go with her readers’ prompt. Each story was both entertaining and gives us more insight into each character. I liked that she gave us a glimpse at characters who don’t even have books yet. Each and every response to a prompt was entertaining and enlightening. We get to see more of all the characters and discover new things. I really enjoyed this and can’t wait to get more of this cast.

Charlie Cochet is an author by day and artist by night. Always quick to succumb to the whispers of her wayward muse, no star is out of reach when following her passion. From adventurous agents and sexy shifters, to society gentlemen and hardboiled detectives, there’s bound to be plenty of mischief for her heroes to find themselves in, and plenty of romance, too!

Currently residing in Central Florida, Charlie is at the beck and call of a rascally Doxiepoo bent on world domination. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found reading, drawing, or watching movies. She runs on coffee, thrives on music, and loves to hear from readers.
