Not often, in my short years on Earth, have I been able to say: “This went exactly the way I planned it.” Usually I’m at the opposite end of the spectrum and require several alternative plans to get me close to the end result I wanted.
The ongoing joke in my family is that if I plan anything go ahead and make a backup plan because something will go wrong. This happens with events, family dinners that I volunteer to cook, trips, and small home projects. Essentially, I’m the walking, talking and singing version of Murphy’s Law.
So, when I received an email stating my book would be published in February I jumped for joy—literally. Now I will tell you a secret. My publisher doesn’t know this, but my story’s setting occurred in the month of February. A rainy, not-so-cold February similar to those we experience in Northwest Arkansas on a yearly basis and please ignore the fact that this year has been the complete opposite of years past. In original edits, the ones I did before submitting to the publisher, I cut two scenes from the opening that gave a clear picture of the timeframe (February). Regardless of the editing I still crossed my fingers when I contracted with Decadent that the story would be published in January or February of 2014.
Who knew my wish would come true.
As to sweet coincidences, my characters in my upcoming 1NS, What You Need, experience an extreme coincidence—Madame Eve pairing them together.
A sexual submissive, Royce wants a woman who’ll make his fantasies come true. The last thing he expects on his 1Night Stand is to be paired with Victoria, his ex-best friend. Haunted by their past, he refuses to deny his newfound attraction or his need for answers. This time, he doesn’t plan to let her go.
Victoria has loved Royce forever, but the sting of his rejection is not so easily forgotten. No longer the naïve girl he knew, she’s matured into a sexual dominant. This domme demands a chance to restart their relationship—on her terms. Knowing that one night will never be enough, she plans a seduction that will last forever.
I don’t think Victoria or Royce planned on finding each other again, though secretly they hoped for it.
