Book Description:

 

Telepathy creates as many problems as it solves, as most of the members of the secret organization x0 would admit. When new member Lola discovers another group of telepaths with a completely different approach, those problems multiply at the speed of thought.

 

Soon, Lola’s family and friends are in danger. Lucky for her, she’s not your average budding psychic. Each person with whom she is close has a special gift of their own. That’s good, because it’s going to take every power they possess to keep this other group from succeeding with their plan to eradicate x0.

 

One Too Excerpt

One Too book coverGabriel contacted Warren late Sunday night to let him know that the teacher Maurice had been found. Warren could not have been more pleased. He became less so when he was informed that the teacher, too, was surrounded by a wall of fuzzy but impermeable energy.

 

“This group is larger and stronger than I feared,” he fretted.

 

“Maybe not,” Gabriel consoled him. “The wall around the woman has weakened now, which means that they’ve had to move their resources to protect the elder.”

 

“Well then, get more info from her,” Warren barked.

 

“It’s still a strong wall,” Gabriel countered. “And we’re not sure she has all that much else to offer us. We are encouraged that they can only do so much at once.”

 

“Yes, of course, that much is good news. You do fine work, Gabriel—I don’t mean to imply otherwise. I just think you’re being hindered by the careful way we are going at this. How much more effective would you be if you had that old man sitting in a chair right in front of you?”

 

There was a second of silence. Warren supposed that Gabriel was trying to read his mind.

 

“I don’t think kidnapping anyone is a good idea at this point,” he said.

 

“Bullshit. It doesn’t have to be kidnapping. I can find a way to finesse it. We need information. Would having him in a room with you help you get it?”

 

“Of course it would. A lot.”

 

“I thought so,” Warren said. “Then this nonsense has gone on long enough. I’m sending a car to your place. It will be there at 6 a.m. sharp. Most of the Entelechy is still here in New York, so take two of your best, most trusted monads with you. Pack bags, you’ll be flying out tomorrow on my private jet, probably to San Antonio. A driver will meet your plane, he’ll take you to where you’ll find this Maurice. There is nothing else you need to know.”

 

Warren didn’t pause long enough for Gabriel to object.

 

“There will be some muscle there already, totally at your disposal. It shouldn’t be hard to break him, Gabriel—he’s an old man. I want to know everything about this organization. Use every tool possible and do whatever you need to do.”

 

Author Bio and Links

Sherrie Cronin Sherrie grew up in Western Kansas thinking that there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

 

She published her first science fiction short story long ago, and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next story. When it finally came,  it declared to her that it had to be whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

 

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down and  explained that in a fit of practicality she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was that she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying  The bad news was that the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.

 

Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was that they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin  turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. “It’s about time,” were his exact words.

 

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and apparently had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie’s head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly that it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided that she better start writing it before it got any longer. She’s been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

Kindred Spirits Description

Dashing and successful, Richard Bingham has been voted one of the top ten bachelors in New York City. After unwittingly offending a reporter from Manhattan Life magazine, he finds himself on the receiving end of an article that makes his quest of finding the perfect mate nearly impossible.

 

After one dating disaster too many, Richard decides it’s time to seek professional help, so he signs up for the matchmaking services of the East Side Yenta.

 

Philippa Fielding is single and searching for love in London, but her accidental profession of “Message Deliverer from the Great Beyond” puts most men right off.

 

Will Pip’s new “Spirit Helper,” Bertram, be able to set her on the course for true love with a message for Richard?

 

Matchmaking, misunderstandings, and mayhem abound in this fast-paced romantic comedy about love, life, and the afterlife!

 

Interview with author Whitney Dineen

Kindred Spirits Final CoverWhat inspired you to come up with the idea for your book?

All of my books write themselves. I’m just the secretary, really. So when a new story starts, I have no idea what’s coming next. It pretty exciting really!

 

Do you have a favorite scene? If so, what was it?

I love all the scenes where Pip (the heroine) passes on messages from the great beyond. I’d love for someone to come up to me on the street with words from my passed loved ones, so these vignettes hold a lot of meaning to me.

 

When you’re not writing, what are you up to?

When I’m not writing I’m busy raising my two little girls, working in our extensive organic gardens, chasing after free-range chickens, or eating french fries –not necessarily in that order.

 

What do you love most about writing?

I love that there are an infinite number of stories to be told. I write in four genres and I never know which one is going to take center stage. Every day is a brand new adventure and as long as I write books, will continue to be so.

 

Do you have a favorite writing environment?

I do all of my writing on a desktop in my office. I’ve decorated the room with framed covers from my books for inspiration and my desk faces out the window to aid my daydreaming tendencies. I’m generally wearing yoga pants and drinking copious amounts of coffee.

 

Do you have a favorite genre you like to read (other than the ones you write in)?

I love to read spy thrillers, books on Quantum Physics, and anything regarding conspiracy. So far I haven’t written anything in those genres. But never say never.

 

Kindred Spirits Excerpt

 

After another thirty minutes of banter, Shelly turned off her recorder and announced, “I think I have all I need to write a great piece.” After a beat, she added, “Magazine rules don’t allow me to ask until our professional relationship is over, but maybe once I’ve written my article, we could go out to dinner sometime?”

 

Richard was shocked and answered, “That would be lovely, but isn’t that an engagement ring on your finger?”

 

“Maybe,” she replied coyly, “but an engagement ring isn’t a wedding ring, is it?”

 

“Perhaps not, but it does indicate a prior commitment.”

 

There was no way Shelly could misconstrue the judgment in his voice. She immediately knew she didn’t have a chance with Richard Bingham, so she responded, “I guess it does.”

 

Uncomfortably, Richard met her direct gaze and said, “I don’t mean to be rude, but once I ask a woman to marry me, I would hope she’d stop shopping around for someone better.”

 

“Mr. Bingham,” the reporter icily replied, “I’m sure in your case, she will. But not everyone is lucky to be engaged to a paragon like yourself. Sometimes people reach an age and place in their lives where they compromise their ideals a bit and settle for something instead of continuing on with nothing.”

 

“That’s a sad commentary on single life. No one should settle for anyone less than they truly desire.”

 

“Unfortunately,” she retorted, “only a handful of singles are considered as desirable as you. I’m afraid life is a bit different for those of us who live in the real world.”

 

Richard realized he’d gone too far and tried to amend his earlier statement by adding, “I think you sell yourself short, Ms. Milton. As far as I’m concerned the only reason I won’t have dinner with you is that you’re promised to another.”

 

Shelly responded, “That’s very noble of you.” Gathering her things together, she stood up and declared, “I wish you luck in your great love search, Mr. Bingham. I’m sure you’ll have a better selection of potential mates than the rest of us mortals.”

 

There was a gleam in her eye that Richard found disconcerting. For a moment he wished he’d merely accepted her offer and reneged at a later date. Shelly Milton looked mad, determined, and offended. Not exactly the trifecta of emotions you want to leave a reporter with right before she writes an article about you in a well-respected and well-circulated magazine.

Archer Miller will be awarding a $25 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

GENRE: Science Fiction

 

Evolved Book Description

Humanity has spread to the far reaches of space with The Golden Door, a planetary colonization monopoly, selling off every desirable and not so desirable planet to desperate settlers.

 

Each new world comes with new challenges, and to meet that challenge the children are evolving.

 

When Pieter, and other gifted children like him, become the target of government research they must fight not only for their lives but the future of their kind.

 

Evolved Book Excerpt

Evolved Book CoverMary’s telepathic shout jolted him out of a sound sleep. As his eyes opened flashes of blue light filled his room. He turned his head to check the common area between the cells. Arcs of lightening sizzled through the room. Kakogo cherta, he thought, watching the dancing discharge.

 

It’s Mike. He’s having a nightmare. Mary sounded frantic inside his mind.

 

Can’t you switch him off?

 

He can’t hear me.

 

Pieter stood and approached the barrier between his cell and the common room. The crackling discharge reminded him of a small Tesla coil his teacher brought to class. The lightning followed any hand or finger that touched the glass sphere. But this was on a scale he had never seen.

 

His eyes focused on the room across from his and  caught sight of Joan watching the lights. They were all watching, too terrified to do anything to stop it.

 

Pieter pressed his hand to the clear wall and immediately the blue, static lights flowed to the spot. He felt no pain. The electrical discharge stopped at the other side of the wall, just like the Tesla coil in school. The pops and crackles from the common room made him wary. As he listened he could hear the electric lock mechanism on his door cycle on and off every few seconds.

 

Has he ever done this before? He asked.

 

Not like this, Mary replied. Not this bad.

 

Pieter listened for his door to open and pushed his hand against the clear panel.

 

Author Interview

What inspired you to come up with the idea for your book?

A very good friend suggested am idea for a simple story about a bunch of strange kids on the run. He suggested they all have super powers of some kind. I’m not sure what part of that grabbed my muse but since I prefer to ground my fiction in actual science I started doing home work. I studied genetics, evolution, exoplanets, faster than light travel, gene markers and on and on. Out of all that rose the story I wrote called Evolved.

 

 

Do you have a favorite scene? If so, what was it?

If I did I think it would be Mike’s nightmare. He’s a young man from a troubling past who happens to be able to control electricity. In his nightmare he sets off an electrical storm in the confined quarters where he and the other seven subjects live. Pieter (My hero) manages to stop Mike from himself and the other captives as well. Read it. I think you’ll like it. Look at chapter 4.

 

Any challenges in writing this book?

The volume of research involved. Besides the homework I already mentioned I had to study the Russian language and Orthodox customs. I studied Norse language and customs. Names and history that pop up throughout the book. So don’t let my hard work go to waste. Look for Easter Eggs all through the bok.

 

When you’re not writing, what are you up to?

I’m a homebody. I love to garden and cook, especially baking. It’s no mystery why bread plays a bib part in the social order on my characters.

 

 

What do you love most about writing?

The creation. I have an entire universe to fill with people and animals and a history. Besides, the voices in my head won’t shut up if I don’t write down what they tell me.

 

 

Any tips to share with someone who wants to be published?

Don’t settle. Find a publisher and just as important, an editor you can work with. The people who run my publisher are writers themselves and that makes a huge difference. My editor is someone I trust implicitly. She isn’t someone to pat me on the head and tell me hoe good I am. She is ruthlessly honest and brutally direct. She pushes me to be a better writer and that is what I like most about her.

 

 

How do you go about choosing the names for your characters?

Ethnic origins, occupation and sometimes historical reference. Many family names began as a trade, Cooper, Fletcher, Smith, Wheelwright. Wainwright, Barber and so on. I won’t give away the game but pay attention the the last names in my story.

 

 

What other books have you written?

This the first book I’ve had published but there are two more in this series in the pipeline as well as a two book epic fantasy.

 

How long have you been a writer?

In one way or another I have been a writer for about fifty years. As a writer for radio and theater. Later I was a copywriter for several Advertising Agencies. I tinkered with writing stories for years before finding my niche.

 

Print or e-books–do you have a preference?

I’m 66 and old fashioned so print. Although I have e-books as well and I enjoy them too.

Noble Magic Book Excerpt

Chapter 4:

Noble MagicOff the coast of southern France, a luxurious yacht, at least eighty feet long with large windows and open spaces for sunbathing, rocked gently on the sea. In the lounge, four men sat on a leather sofa, watching the television monitor mounted on the wall with a view of Nemesis in the Elfin chamber. As he delivered his ultimatum to the Elves, the men cheered and shook their fists at the screen. When he ended his threats and the large fireball occurred, they burst into applause. The screen went black.

 

A few moments later, Nemesis entered the room through a black curtain to a standing ovation. He bowed, then pulled up his jeans and slicked his stringy hair away from his face. “I think they got the message. Ecstasy, get this stuff off my face.”

 

Ecstasy clapped loudly and beamed with pride. “Of course, my darling. Sit down. I knew you could do it.” Ecstasy was a man dressed as a woman and threw his arms around Nemesis’ neck and planted a wet kiss on his lips. As he backed away, he waved his wand. “Abracadabra presto change-o! I just love doing your make-up. I love everything about you.”

 

Nemesis’ nose shrunk in size and his color returned to tan. His ugliness was diminished, but didn’t go away. “All right, already. Stop it! Now get a message off to the Dynasty Sisters. They need go in first and get the wand.”

 

Ecstasy closed his eyes and waved his hands over the crystal ball. He mumbled a spell under his breath and peered inside. He leaned back with a sigh. “Oh dear! The girls have gone on a meditation retreat to mourn their grandfather Shinjan and can’t be disturbed for the next month.”

 

“What? Why didn’t you tell me about this? We did this for them. I told you to keep in touch with them.”

 

“I asked them yesterday and they said they were going to be here. I’m sorry.” Tears filled his eyes. “They lied to me…again.”

 

“Damn it! Don’t cry.” Nemesis rubbed his forehead. “All right. Someone else will go. Who wants to go in first?”

 

Silence.

 

Guest Post by Joni Parker

Here’s a short story:

A Baseball Dream

I woke up this morning dreaming of baseball. No, I’m not a player, but my older brother, Eric, loves the game. Everything he has is covered with baseball logos from his notebook for school to his T-shirts. His goal is to play short stop on the Arizona Diamondbacks, but first, his team needs to win today’s game to qualify for the Little League World Series. I’m excited for him, but I have this thing about my dream. It wasn’t that they won or lost, but I got hit on my left eye with a foul ball. It was so vivid that I had to tell my dad about it.

 

“Don’t worry about it,” he told me. “It’s just a dream.”

 

We left early to get to the ball park in plenty of time. We’d never been to this field before—it was across town. As soon as we got there, my brother ran off to join his teammates and my dad picked out our seats on the bleachers running parallel to the first base line. As I sat down, I felt like I had been here before, but I knew I hadn’t. It was in my dream.

 

With popcorn in one hand and soda can in the other, I watched the first batter on our team come to the plate. His name was Reggie and my brother called him ‘Sandwich,’ for obvious reasons. He struck out and we sighed in unison. ‘Top Cat’ Tom was next and he got a base hit. We cheered as if he’d hit a home run. Then Eric stepped up to the plate. He swung and missed the first pitch, but connected with the second. The sharp ting of the aluminum bat drove us to our feet as we watched the ball rise in the air and curve foul over the first base line. The fence should have caught it, but the ball took on a life of its own, rising higher over the fence and veering directly for me. I watched mesmerized by it—it was coming for me the same way it had in my dream. Was this real?

 

Just before the ball hit my face, my dad reached over and deflected it—the ball glanced off my left cheek and skittered away, but it still hurt and I cried. If it hadn’t been deflected, it would have hit my left eye. Just like my dream.

 

Through my tears, I said, “Dad, my dream came true…just like I told you.”

 

“It’s just a coincidence,” he said as he checked the redness on my face. “Hold the soda can against your cheek. It’ll keep the swelling down. You’ll be okay.” He hugged me with one arm around my shoulder. “Why didn’t you catch it?”

 

“I didn’t catch it in my dream either. Sorry, Dad.”

Trust with Hearts ‒ Behind the Scenes

- writing tips

Trust With Hearts by Kelli A WilkinsBy Kelli A. Wilkins

www.KelliWilkins.com

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing a look at the making of my latest contemporary romance, Trust with Hearts.

 

Readers are always curious about how books “happen” ‒ how do they start out as a random idea and become an actual book, filled with great characters, drama, and sizzling love scenes? The answers vary, and each novel comes to me in a different way.

 

How did Trust with Hearts come about? Is the sexy and sultry Curtis based on a particular country music celebrity? Here’s the scoop…

 

The idea for Trust with Hearts came to me before a country music concert. I was sitting in the front row before the show started, when all of a sudden the whole plot and all the characters jumped into my head. Naturally, I started scribbling down notes (on the back of an envelope, of all things!) before the house lights went down.

 

Although inspired by real-life, the character of Curtis isn’t based on that one particular country music superstar – rather, he’s a blend of three or four cowboy-hat-wearing singer/songwriters. Elements of the “inspirational” singer are there, but I used my imagination to fill in background details and invented whatever else I needed to make the story work.

 

Trust with Hearts is a bit different from my other romances in that it has a more “traditional” romance novel feel – but still contains plenty of heat. Although Sherrie and Curtis are attracted to each other, they’re total strangers and are hesitant about getting involved in a relationship. They’ve both been unlucky in love, and aren’t sure if giving their hearts away is even worth the time or trouble.

 

The book gives them the whole summer to get to know each other. Readers peek into their troubled pasts and follow along as Curtis and Sherrie heal their hearts, love, and learn to trust again.

 

The subplot of the book – Sherrie’s devotion to save Kitty Corner – was crucial because I wanted to give her a purpose, something to build her self-esteem. Sherrie’s cat adoption project lets her help unfortunate cats who need rescuing and good homes. It parallels how Dave takes Sherrie in (aka “rescues” her) and gives her a second chance at a new life.

 

And, on a more personal note, giving Sherrie the “job” of helping cats allowed me to make a social/personal statement. I’m a cat person and I’ve written three cat care books. I always advocate adopting pets (of all kinds) from shelters and giving them a real home. (Would you want to live out the rest of your life in a wire cage?)

 

Back on topic: Knowing how I often write sequels, a reader asked if there will be another book following up Trust with Hearts. Will Dave get his own story?

 

I do have an idea for a sequel in mind. What if Curtis’s cousin Jen suddenly had to move in with Dave? Hmm… I already have a plot brewing in the back of my mind, so if readers would like to see a follow-up story, let me know!

 

And here’s a little-known fact: Once upon a time, Trust with Hearts had an entirely different ending. Curtis and Sherrie were driving back to Dave’s house when they got into a car accident. The Ventura was demolished, Sherrie was thrown clear, but she had to go back into the burning car and rescue Curtis. I opted to delete the “car wreck” chapter after several people told me it felt too “tacked on” and was depressing. This version of the story has a new epilogue, and readers can see that Sherrie and Curtis are certainly living happily-ever-after.

 

I’m glad to say that the book has received some great reviews:

 

Trust with Hearts is a must read. You will laugh, cry, and in the end, you will totally fall in love with the story. It is character rich, and full of drama along with some sizzling scenes to spice it up. The relationship with her characters helps us see that Curtis and Sherrie may not make it, but then, as the drama unfolds, and she shows us their hearts, we realize there just may be more there than meets the eye. This book will remain on my favorites shelf for a long while, and it is a definitely recommended read from this reviewer.” – Rose, Reviewer, Romance at Heart.com

 

 

4.5 stars! Trust with Hearts is beautifully written. You struggle with Sherrie as she tries to regain her footing, and Curtis’s charm is intoxicating as it flows off the pages. I am always thrilled when I get the chance to discover a new-to-me author who I can’t wait to read more from.” – Emily, Reviewer, SingleTitles.com

 

Here’s the book summary and an exclusive excerpt:

 

 TRUST WITH HEARTS

After a bitter breakup, Sherrie Parker seeks refuge at her cousin Dave’s house in rural West Virginia. Early one morning, she runs into Dave’s other houseguest, a singer named Curtis Taylor. The last thing Sherrie wants is to share living quarters with a country music crooner – even if he is sexy, in a cowboy sort of way.

Thrown together by circumstances, Sherrie and Curtis get off to a rocky start, but soon discover they have more in common than they ever imagined. Unable to fight their growing attraction, they give in to their desires and start a sizzling summer romance.

Everything is perfect between them until Sherrie discovers that Curtis is keeping secrets from her – and his biggest secret of all will change everything. Can their newfound love survive, or will destiny keep them apart forever?

 

An exclusive excerpt:

 

As she made her way down the hall, she saw Curtis standing in the living room near the sofa. He had dimmed the lights and lit a few vanilla-scented candles. She approached him slowly, unsure of what to say.

He extended his hand. “How about another dance, darlin’?”

Her heart thundered as she slipped her hand into his. “There’s no music.”

“Wait…” Curtis reached behind her and clicked the CD player’s remote control. An upbeat guitar solo filled the room.

As Curtis settled her to his chest, she melted against him and inhaled his cologne. After a minute, she decided to open up. “I’m a bit nervous.”

“There’s no need to be. Nothin’ will happen here that you don’t want to.”

“It’s not that. I want to, but…” She looked down. “It’s been a while, and I’m not very—”

He squeezed her closer. “Shh, move to the music. Don’t worry about a thing.”

Curtis swayed her around in time with the song. This song wasn’t as sad and lamenting as most of the other country music he had. “Whose CD is this?”

“Mine.”

“I know that. I mean, who’s singing? I like this song.”

He nudged her with the brim of his hat. “Your favorite superstar, CJ.”

“It figures.” She laughed. “I guess I’m starting to like him.”

“You don’t know how happy that makes me,” Curtis said, nuzzling her neck.

The song ended, and she stayed snuggled in Curtis’s arms.

“Another dance? I’ve got lots of music.”

“Sure.” She rested her head against his shoulder as the next song started. It was a slow, haunting tale of lonesome nights.

Curtis caressed her back in time to the song and she cuddled closer. Little by little, her nervousness was fading and being replaced with a smoldering passion.

He kissed her as the song ended. She stroked his chest as their tongues entwined and hungered for more. She was vaguely aware of the songs changing as they were lost in each other. This was nice, but she wanted him to tear off her clothes and ravage her.

“I want you so bad,” she whispered, then turned away. “I can’t believe I said that.”

“It’s okay. I like a vocal girl. Don’t be afraid to tell me what you want… and like. It turns me on,” he said, as he brushed her hair to one side and sucked on her neck, making her moan. He glided his hands up her ribs and cupped her breasts through her shirt. She swayed as he pinched her nipples with his thumbs.

“Now don’t you faint on me.” He took off his hat and settled it on her head, then danced her backward until she was leaning against the wall outside the bedroom. “See if you can hold up this wall while I do sinful things to you.”

She listened to the music as Curtis unbuttoned her blouse. Her skin tingled as he parted the material. She opened her eyes and dared a peek at him. He was staring at her chest.

“You are so beautiful,” he whispered, then kissed the top of each breast.

“Should I take this off?” she asked, reaching for her bra strap.

“No, no. I’ll take care of everything. Tonight’s your night, Sher.”

Intimate Journeys Book Description

The most intimate journeys, though they are polar opposites, involve the unparalleled pleasures of sex and the inevitable unknown of death. Both are an experience unlike anything else: one is sought by everyone, while the other is avoided by everyone – for as long as they can. Sometimes these polar opposites complement each other.

 

Intimate Journeys Book Excerpt

“The Whisper of Ereshkigal,” Intimate Journeys

 

intimate journeys book coverWith closed eyes the tall, bald, square-faced man reveled in the warmth of the setting sun and enjoyed the gentle caress of the breeze that rustled the leafy fronds of the surrounding date palms. He inhaled the heady aroma of perfumed flowers and listened to the buzz of bees flitting from flower to flower. From far below, like the shimmer of the desert heat, rose the music of drums, pipes, lutes, and lyres, the sweet voices of young women singing, and the muted roar of the crowds.

 

“Alulim,” a throaty, seductive voice whispered with the softness of the sun-warmed wind. “I have accepted your sacrifices for many years.”

 

The kneeling man dressed in a leather kilt decorated with hanks of sheep wool, opened his eyes and gazed upon a dusky-skinned woman with bright obsidian eyes, and long raven-black hair that fluttered in the soothing breeze. She wore a shoulder collar of gold, blue lapis lazuli, and red carnelian, and leaf shaped earrings of gold dangled from her ears. She wore a long sleeveless dress of colored wool, and was barefoot.

 

She smiled and held a black and red-henna decorated hand out to him. “Take my hand,” she said with a crooked little smile. “Come with me at last. Enjoy my love.”

 

Thin clouds on which the setting sun cast shades of orange, white, red and yellow floated across the twilight sky behind her. The life-giving sea sparkled in the distance as did the waters of the marshes that reached from the sea up to the surrounding fields…

Genre: Romantic Thriller

Saved Book Description

Theresa Kent is a wife, mom, and hardworking nurse living in rural Colorado. Life is good until her increasingly despondent, unemployed husband suddenly snaps—his vicious attack leaves Theresa fighting for her life as she tries to escape the insane version of the man she loves.

 

Ryan Tucker appears to have it all, except he’s been merely existing, not living, for the the last three years. His emotions get a much needed jump start when he rescues Theresa from the torment her life has become in just a matter of days. Ryan feels an instant and fierce desire to protect this stranger that fell into his life.

 

Hanging over their heads is the knowledge that Theresa’s husband is still out there, hunting for her.

 

Can two broken souls be repaired, or will the demons of the past and present come between the repressed love that grows between them?

 

Saved Book Excerpt

Saved book coverTheresa sat forward, the seatbelt tugging at her collarbone. She smiled as she stared at the crooked, brown, furry trunks that split into thick branches—a melon-sized clump of green reaching for the sky atop each branch. “I’ve killed a cactus before. More than one, actually.”

 

“Ah. Did the cactus do something to deserve an early demise? Or, are you just a silent psychopathic killer of cacti?”

 

She cringed a little at his choice of words, but hid it with a small chuckle. “Neither. I’m just really bad at keeping plants alive. My thumb is not only decisively not green—it’s necrotic. I have necrotic thumb syndrome when it comes to plants.”

 

“Hmm. I see. So, how, exactly, do you go about killing a cactus?”

 

“Well, there are several ways actually. Too much water. Not enough sunlight. And, surprisingly, not enough water. Apparently, you can’t just ignore one and hope it sucks up enough moisture from the air to survive.”

 

“Okay. Necrotic thumb noted. There will be no gifts of living plants from me in your future. How do you fare with the plastic versions?”

 

She snorted at the fake seriousness in his voice. Turning to him, she wrinkled her brow to match his tone. “I can’t guarantee the safety of even synthetic greenery in the care of my black and decaying thumb.”

 

Mouth twitching, he narrowed his eyes and placed a finger alongside his jaw, nodding. “I see. This is more serious than I thought. Dead flowers and chocolate will have to suffice, I suppose.”

 

She laughed, then turned serious, laying her hand on his arm where it rested between them. “Or, we could just say that saving my life and taking care of me when you really didn’t have to is enough of a gift to last an entire lifetime and then some.”

Four Days with Jack — What Will People Think?

- writing tips

by Kelli Wilkins

Four Days with JackHi everyone,

Today I’m sharing a look at the making of my gay romance, Four Days with Jack. In this contemporary novella, best friends David and Jack embark on a sexual relationship. David has always loved Jack and has fantasized about being his lover, but he lacked the courage to admit his feelings—until now.

 

Four Days with Jack is one of the few books I wrote without an outline. I think not having a pre-planned structure let the characters write their own story (so to speak), and took the book in new directions.

 

At first, I didn’t know what the story would be. All I had was a basic plot (straight guy comes out to his gay best friend), a title, and one pivotal scene that takes place in a bathroom. (For those of you who have read the book, you know which scene I’m talking about – but I won’t give it away here.)

 

From there, I let my imagination wander and came up with the resort, the rest of the plot, and the unusual cast of characters that Jack and David encounter. As I wrote, David quickly revealed a major conflict—inner turmoil. Over four days, David and Jack learn a lot about themselves, each other, and what sacrifices they’ll make to stay together.

 

David has kept his true desires a secret from himself and everyone else. He’s afraid of what people will think about him if they know (or even suspect) that he’s gay. How will they react? Will they judge him? If so, how will his life change?

 

These aren’t the typical types of questions that my straight characters have to face in their romances. And this line of thinking really got me wondering about what it’s like for people to come out in real life. Will they be shunned by friends and family? Should they tell anyone? Live a lie? Move to a new state? What if they live in a state that’s more conservative and not gay-friendly? What will their coworkers think? Is their preference really anybody’s business?

 

I picked up on this theme of “What will people think?” and ran with it. In the book, David points out that Jack’s family disowned him when he came out, and David doesn’t want to go through the same type of heartache. Jack’s reply is pretty much: “So? They’ll get over it.”

 

As I was writing this story, I considered “what people would think” about this book. How can a woman write a gay romance? What will people think about the love scenes? Then I reminded myself that I’m a writer, and I create the characters and scenes that make up the book. Basically, the story needs to be told, and I’m the one telling it.

 

Writers need to turn off their internal editors and forge ahead with the story as it should be (and needs to be) told. If we constantly worried about what grandma would think about our writing, or if we were afraid to open up and let the characters and story take us into the bedroom, we’d never write anything except G-rated bedtime fables. And if a friend/relative/whoever has a problem with the subject matter, Jack’s right: they’ll get over it.

 

Or maybe not. One reader commented that she didn’t like the antagonist (Frank). As a writer, I’m glad to hear that! Frank is a blatant homophobic ass who says some pretty awful things to David and Jack, and he treats his own wife like crap.

 

So why is he in the story? For two reasons: 1. to show that not everyone accepts openly gay couples, and 2. to add a level of confrontation and intolerance that help band David and Jack together during a crisis moment. Is Frank an over-the-top stereotype? No, I don’t think so, because he’s a compilation of a few real people I’ve encountered.

 

Even in this day and age, some people are offended by gay romances and consider them “icky” or immoral. (Yes, I was actually told by a book reviewer that gay romances are icky!) My philosophy is pretty simple when it comes to that: it’s a free country, so read whatever you want —but don’t expect me to censor what I write because you have a problem with it.

 

This re-release is a bit different from the original version. I’ve given the story an overhaul and made a lot of changes. New scenes were added, others were completely revised, and a few were deleted. I was happy to make one significant change to this edition: when the book was originally published by Amber Quill Press, gay marriage wasn’t recognized. I’m pleased to report that I’ve included a line where “same-sex couples are getting married all over the country.”

 

Now more than ever, I’m just as proud of my gay romances as I am of my straight romances. Why? Because I’m a romance writer—and in my books, everyone deserves to be in love and live happily-ever-after with whatever partner they choose.

 

And that’s the way it should be… in fiction and in real life.

 

Here’s the book summary and a mild excerpt:

 

Four Days with Jack

 

When David invited his best friend on vacation, he never expected them to fall in love…

 

Spending four days in a tropical paradise with Jack is a dream come true. For years, David has lived a lie and denied his romantic feelings for Jack. Now that they’re together in an isolated Caribbean resort, he finally admits what he really wants—to be Jack’s lover.

Jack has been in love with David for years and is encouraged by his desire to explore a sexual relationship. He’s more than willing to introduce David to the life he has always fantasized about. Their sizzling nighttime encounters confirm David’s long-hidden cravings, but what will happen when they leave the resort?

Will David come out and start a new life with Jack? Or will he go back to his old ways and risk losing the best friend he ever had?

 

The excerpt:

Jack finished brushing his teeth and studied his reflection in the mirror. He looked happy for a change, and for once, he felt content. How many years had he waited, prayed, for this night? He’d been hopelessly in love with David forever. Now they were together. But why? What had prompted David to make the leap?

Obviously breaking up with Allison had played a part in his sudden “conversion,” but what would happen when they got home? Would David come out to his parents and everyone else? Or keep living a lie?

He flicked off the bathroom light and went into the bedroom. David’s steady breathing told him he was asleep. It was no wonder that he was exhausted. They’d had a long day—flying in from Philly, sitting in the sun, drinking… and now this. He smiled. And they still had two more nights in their island paradise.

He walked to the veranda, slid the screen door open, and stepped outside. The night air was a bit chilly, yet the cool breeze felt refreshing. He gazed toward the ocean. A quarter moon reflected off the water. In the distance, he heard calypso music and people laughing. That was an interesting thing about the resort; although hundreds, maybe thousands of people were around, it felt like they were alone.

You have to tell him about Andre. It’s only fair.

He leaned against the railing and sighed. Eventually David would ask him how he could toss aside his live-in boyfriend of two years. He was too morally straight not to question if this was considered cheating.

Ironically, he had been dating Andre exactly as long as David had been with Allison. But Andre had kicked him out a week before David and Allison called it quits.

Despite what happened, part of him still loved Andre. But Andre had only been interested in getting hard and getting off. There was no romance between them, just whatever it took to come. David was different. When he was with him, it wasn’t about sex. They had a connection. They belonged together.

And besides, he couldn’t go back to Andre, not after what he did. It was one thing to have an argument and move out, but when the person you loved hit you—

“What are you doing?”

David’s sleepy-sounding voice broke him from his thoughts, and he cleared his throat. “Watching the water,” he said, then reentered the room. Thinking about the situation with Andre depressed him. Right now, he felt like curling up with David and telling him everything—but he didn’t want to burden him.

“Should I get a wake-up call?”

“Nah, let’s sleep in.” He stripped, then pulled the sheets back and climbed into bed. Instinctively, they rolled onto their sides and kissed.

“Thank you for tonight,” David said, nestling close. “What can I do for you?”

“Hold me, and don’t let go.”
