Jen and all three of her Daves have been transported from the 1980s to the new millennium in this reboot of Three Daves, originally published in 2010. The new version will be released by Omnific Publishing. Date to be announced.
I was so excited when my publisher agreed to let me dig my hands back into Three Daves. I’ve always said Three Daves could be told in any modern era. I became curious to see what it would look like in a current setting, so I time traveled Jen and all her Daves from the 1980s to the new millennium. But don’t worry, fellow 80s lovers—that most awesome of eras still gets a nod through David’s retro playlists.
Writers never stop honing their craft, so while I dug my hands back into the manuscript, I took the opportunity to streamline. The writing’s been purged of unnecessary verbiage and passive phrasing. Scenes have been reworked to “show” more and “tell” less. The narrative is less judgmental. The story is the same, but now it’s told in a more active, engaging way.
I had wicked amounts of fun slicing and dicing Jen’s adventures with her Daves. I can’t wait for you all get a chance to read it. Stay tuned for details.
Three Daves Part 1 – David; Sophomore Year
Jennifer Whitney always expected to save her virginity for that special someone. But the nineteen year old college sophomore is tired of waiting for the universe to bring him to her—especially while everyone around her is gaining valuable experience in the bedroom…and in the library stacks and in conversion vans…
Afraid of falling behind, she decides to lose her virginity to her friend David, someone she’d never ever risk a romantic relationship with after what he did to her. Trouble is, she’s been crushing on David since freshman year. Can she really take that step with him and not fall into the trap of hoping things will turn real?
“I asked my interior designer to give me something appropriate for defiling virgins.”
Three Daves Part 2 – Dave: Junior Year
With solid sexual experience under her belt, Jennifer Whitney is determined to return to her good girl status until she meets the right guy. Sexy super-senior Dave is not the right guy. But his mesmerizing eyes and sensual swagger have a way of making up for that—especially when he gives Jen the kind of attention she never dreamed she’d get from someone like him.
Her roommate doesn’t like him. Her friend David isn’t his biggest fan, either. But neither of them understand the persuasive powers of Dave’s delicious tongue and his tiger-like growl. Jen’s proud of herself for resisting his many temptations, yet she knows Dave won’t stick around forever if she never gives him anything…
“Come on, good girl. Be bad.”
Three Daves Part 3 – Big D; Senior Year
Big D is wonderful. Big D is perfect. Big D is taking way too long to make a freaking move. Self-proclaimed good girl Jennifer Whitney never thought she’d be the aggressive one in a relationship. But what choice does she have when her big, beefy hunk of a boyfriend treats her like fragile glass? She knows she can’t let him keep thinking she’s a virgin, but no way can she explain how she lost it, especially when D’s already suspicious of her friendship with David—the guy she lost it to.
By the end of senior year, Jen thought she’d have it all figured out. Instead, she’s forced to rethink who she is and what she wants during one crazy weekend when she has a close encounter with all three of her Daves.
“Of all the fraternity houses on campus, you had to walk into mine.”
