GPS With Benefits Shout-Out!

Thank you for having me on your blog today. I'm truly honored to be here with all of you!

How many people do you know that make jokes about their GPS device or even talk to it?

Nearly everyone, right?

GPS devices know where you are and how fast you are driving. Who says that, in the near future, they won't be able to know you look at and what you say.

These thoughts form the basis of my new release, GPS WITH BENEFITS, in which a womanizer purchases a new GPS device, not knowing that it has a mind of 'her' own.

"The inspiration for GPS WITH BENEFITS came to me when I was in the car with a friend," Vanessa says. "We made jokes about the GPS device and imagined what it would be like if the GPS was actually aware of what the driver was thinking. I immediately knew that these ideas could be turned into a hilarious story."

I won't reveal more, but GPS WITH BENEFITS has some twists and turns that you won't see coming and that will have you laughing out loud.

Your turn... What's the weirdest or funniest thing a GPS has ever done to you?

By the way, if you leave a comment on this post, you'll automatically be entered to win an Amazon Gift Card of $25.

  1. This happened to my mom as I've never owned a GPS.

    She was on her way to Houston to pick me up from the airport. She was on the freeway, and it had her driving into oncoming traffic!! She only realized that's what was happening when she saw a car in front of her had crashed & was also driving into oncoming traffic.

    GPS' are trying to kill us, lol. x

    I always name our GPS and "chat" with it asking where we need to go, telling it to be quiet, etc. I completely can see it being able to interact one day. When things like Siri exist, it's not hard to imagine.

    Before I replaced my first one, she would reprogram herself and decide where she'd want to go. So, I'd have punched in a destination and since she was going out - she'd redirect me to another destination that had been entered. It was oh-so-helpful.
