*Book Tour & Giveaway* The Singular Adventures of Jefferson Ball by David Perlmutter-GUEST POST

The Singular Adventures of Jefferson Ball
by David Perlmutter
Genre: YA SciFi Fantasy

There never was a heroine like Jefferson Ball. And, thankfully, there may never be.

She is, simply, the most powerful humanized female dog in a universe full of them. Faster, stronger, more attractive to boys. Unbeatable as a lover. Unfortunately, her brains are not up to this quality, but don’t tell her that.
About the only one who can is Major Hamilton Pomeranian, the diminutive ex-soldier who is Jeff’s best friend and conscience. When she gets too big for her limited clothing, Hamilton tells her what for. And it’s usually only after that point that they are able to escape from whatever convoluted situation they find themselves in.
This potential collection will have readers both laughing and awestruck at the events that happen. And, hopefully, you will be one of them.

David Perlmutter is a freelance writer based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He is the author of America Toons In: A History of Television Animation (McFarland and Co.), The Singular Adventures Of Jefferson Ball (Amazon Kindle), The Pups (Booklocker.com), Certain Private Conversations and Other Stories (Aurora Publishing), Honey and Salt (Scarlet Leaf Publishing), The Encyclopedia of American Animated Cartoon Series (Rowman and Littlefield, forthcoming) and Orthicon; or, the History of a Bad Idea (Linkville Press, forthcoming).

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
The overall plot is always kept well in hand, but I let the characters have free reign in terms of what they say, and sometimes they surprise me.

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
It’s not very long, and I’ve tried to make it as entertaining as possible. Which is more than can be said for a lot of books these days.

What did you edit out of this book?
Profanity. Some of my editors have told me that, the younger your characters are, the less acceptable it will be to have them swear. So, since so many of my lead characters are below voting age, I try to limit their curses to the near-beer variety (i.e. “darn”) and leave the genuine stuff for the more “adult” characters. Although, even then, this is done only when it helps move the story along, and not, as is often the case now, for the joy of doing it.
