Entertainment Reporter Bridget Campos Launches New Book
by BWW News Desk - Mar 11, 2016

Recent Author Bridget Campos wanted to start off 2016 with her first book ever! A fictional story that has suspense, drama, love and humor all rolled into one. Story description: Homeless man named Jimmy wanders The Streets of New York looking for an opportunity to sucker any poor sap that will pay attention to him. He soon comes across a lonely Army veteran, Trent, that's willing to spend his money on having drinks at a bar with Jimmy just to fill a void in his life. The drifter is a con artist that will tell any fabricated story or outright lie to get what he wants. Jimmy's perception of people being willfully ignorant is what makes him feel that he could trick anyone. But this only works on people that do not know him. Single mother, Loreal, and her little girl, Gia, look after Jimmy by offering him food or washing his clothes, but the homeless man is ungrateful and misogynistic towards Loreal and other women he comes across. It is not until one day his whole world is turned upside down after his past actions come back to haunt him. Events suddenly unfold that make him realize that all these years things were not what they appeared to be. Soon the drifter is pushed to the brink of madness as he is forced to come to terms with taking responsible for his past actions and the people he harmed along the way, by not living in a fantasy world that he would often reclude to. But will Jimmy be able to make those changes before it is too late? The 116 page suspenseful tale will have you guessing until the very last chapter of who Jimmy really is and what role do the other main characters play in his life both then and now. (Please note the story does contain adult language and some adult content.) 'Upon the Willful Ignorance of Men' is being sold at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Scribd, Smashwords, and other major online retail stores. You can also locate the newly released book through its ISBN: 9781310832734 to see if a digital copy is available at your favorite bookstore or library.

Be sure to also post your review at online book stores such as GoodReads.
