(Review from the author)
bookshelves: written-by-me

I have to say that writing `Sharing Paul', book three in the Portals series was magic. The entire story hit me like a bolt out of the blue while I was in the middle of writing the second book, Devon's Revenge. All of a sudden there was this guy called Paul standing in the Cat Club talking to Nate and his whole story poured out as I sat trying to work out who he was and where he had come from. Originally, I wrote the whole story as a quick little 24K Novella, mainly so I could get the ideas down before I forgot them. Then, after finishing Devon's tale I went back, refined and expanded the story and now Paul, Joshua and Matt's story is being published as a short novel! It's been quite an incredible journey for all concerned.

As with the entire Portals series, I let my imagination go a little wild with this one. I just wrote what was there in my head and my heart and let it stand as is. I can't say I've ever read anything like Paul and Joshua's experience of life, so it was a lot of fun trying to feel my way through how they live and work together - what it would be like to be two distinct people that share a body.

I really hope you enjoy 'Sharing Paul' if you decide to go ahead and read their story.

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* So, Paul an Joshua are the same person? Like a split personality kind of thing?

message 2: by Jade (new) - added it

Jade Archer No, Paul and Joshua are very much two different people, they just happen to share the same body.

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Hmmm, so if there's three individuals, Paul Joshua and Matt, but only two bodies, Paul/Joshua and Matt, is that still considered an m/m/m? Or does Joshua find his own body?

message 4: by Jade (new) - added it

Jade Archer Good question...I'm going to say m/m/m because the relationship exists between the three seperate entities...and I'm not going to spoil the suprise by answering your last question :D

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* O.O

You are such a tease!!!

Lol. Well, it certainly sounds like something new and interesting. I can't wait ^_^

Jade Archer :D Hope you enjoy it, Nikyta.

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions This blurb is great I am really anxious now for this one and I havent even gotten any Devon yet

message 8: by Jade (new) - added it

Jade Archer Thank you...blurbs are hard work. Glad this one has you interested :) I hope you still want to read the series after the little shock I give in Devon's story...trust me...it's important to the overall story arc and not just gimmick :)

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions You keep trying to scare me i think, I want to say I will for sure read the series but I won’t really know until after i get this little shock in Devon's.

The blurb does for sure have me intrigued and I have read a couple m/m/m books now and after the beating and rape scenes in Dynasty of Ghosts (Looksi forgot about those, conveniently when she recommended it) I think I can handle almost anything

message 10: by Jade (new) - added it

Jade Archer Oh! That looks good. Lots of high recommendations from people I trust. I'm going to add it to my TBR pile...the never ending TBR pile :)

Hopefully Devon's little shock won't be too much for you...I very nearly tried to write the series without it, but decided to be brave and true to the story I had originally envisioned instead. I do understand that not everyone will like it though...not trying to scare you...well not much :) The next book after Paul moves to the magic uses world which I'm really looking forward to...and Wolf and Cy are making an appearance soon too :)

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions I loved wolf and Cy that was so cute so I will have to read on just for them. I am feeling brave I wont worry about this shocking twist and will just take it like a man ;)

A warning Dynasty is long and if you are like me once you start you won’t want to stop. I didn't do anything but read it for two days had to force myself to go to bed, there were so few places where i could set it down and not have to know immediately what happened next .

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Lmao. Just to let you know, I didn't rec Dynasty of Ghosts to you. It was someone else in the GB challenge... I just, you know, pushed you to read it faster :P

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions I think you were the reason it was on my list in the first place

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Ummmmm....... Maybe?

Still!! You loved it anyway! If I would have told you there was a rape in the beginning then you never would have read it and that would have been a shame, wouldn't it?

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions yes but it would have been nice after i started to be warned that the two guys would kidnap him, beat him, and then rape him a few times

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Lol. Well, you know my memory, it ain't the greatest ^_^

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Yeah so random thought

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions My thought was too embarrassing to share and now that i have courage i forgot what it was

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* I figured that. Lmao. No clue what the thought was?

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Something about wondering if Jade is writing for the purpose of trying to scare me. But it was more developed in my head I think but it was a random thought and it is gone now. Head is empty, problem solved

message 22: by Jade (new) - added it

Jade Archer Challenge, Bubbles...I only ever write to challenge, never scare...I'm a huge wuss when it comes to horror. Can't hack it at all. But I love a challenge. :)

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions i scare easy

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Lol. Well, I'll take one of your 'challenges' any day, Jade. ;-P

Your head is never empty, Bambi... It's always got something in it ;-)

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Just the mushy stuff never much of substance. Its easier to be sweet if your dumb and pretty, ye?

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Eh, I wouldn't know. I'm not that sweet. Lol. :P

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Bet that one guy says your sweet, the one you sent a picture of to us and i told you to set your brother up with him

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Lol. Yeah, he'll say I'm sweet just to get in my pants... You can never listen to those types of guys and trust me, I'm a raging bitch. My family joke that I have a Category 5 hurricane temper :-/

Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions lol yeah well i understand, you have told me about your mother

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* Lmao. Ah, see, Bambi, you are sweet! You blame the temper on my mom, I like that ;-P

(PNR Book Lover Reviews), Babe, this does really sound AWESOME!!!
I cant wait to give it ago:-)Bring on May the 9th!! Xx
