BLESSEDselling Author E. N. Joy is the writer behind the five book series, “New Day Divas,” coined the “Soap Opera In Print.” Formerly writing secular works under the names Joylynn M. Jossel and JOY, this award winning author has been sharing her literary expertise on conference panels in her home town of Columbus, Ohio as well as cities across the country.
In 2004, Joy branched off into the business of literary consulting in which she provides one-on-one consulting and literary services such as ghost writing, editing, professional read-throughs, write behinds, etc… Her clients consist of first time authors, Essence Magazine bestselling authors, New York Times bestselling authors and entertainers.
Joy no longer pens street lit (in which two of her titles, If I Ruled the World and Dollar Bill, made the Essence Magazine bestsellers list. Dollar Bill also appeared in Newsweek and has been translated to Japanese). She no longer pens erotica or adult contemporary fiction either, in which one of her titles earned the Borders Bestselling African American Romance Award at the Romance Writers of America National Conference. Instead, under the name E.N. Joy, she pens adult Christian fiction, and under the name N. Joy she pens children’s and young adult titles. Joy’s children’s picture book, The Secret Olivia Told Me, received the American Library Association Coretta Scott King Honor. Book club rights were acquired by Scholastic Books and has sold almost 100,000 copies. Elementary and middle school children have fallen in love with reading and creative writing as a result of the readings and workshops Joy performs in schools nation wide.
Currently, Joy is the acquisition editor for Urban Christian, an imprint of Urban Books, LLC in which the titles are distributed by Kensington Publishing Corporation. When she’s not adding her two cents to other authors’ works, she’s diligently working on her own. Joy’s latest project, the “New Day Divas” series, is taking the literary world by storm. She’s had such great success with the series that she’s decided to continue it with the “Still Divas” series. Joy is certain this project is the one that is going to afford her with the title of New York Times Bestselling Author. Until then, she doesn’t mind the title of BLESSEDselling author.
