BOOK RELEASE: Another Kind of Romance, Vol 2

A good story is like a nice vacation. A break from the everyday. A chance to experience lives and places and worlds you wouldn’t, or couldn’t, get to otherwise and sometimes it doesn’t matter if you speak the language. We like to get away because our daily lives can seems so ordinary and we long for the exotic, the exciting, the different. So … where would you like to go?

How about Mexico in the mid-1970s, where you might meet a beautiful young woman who captures your imagination by singing familiar songs in foreign words that steal your heart? Or a local watering hole that could give you an opportunity to make a good second impression because your first one didn’t go so well? Better yet, how about just home, the place you couldn’t wait to escape but can’t wait to go back because ‘she’s’ there?

Come to Woods River, Michigan, as Bob Pendleton, a successful novelist, turns his story telling skills inward and realises the torch he’s been carrying has shed more heat than light on his love life. Spend some time in a courtroom and watch Jeff face the consequences of a thoughtlessly uttered lie. Stand in the corner and watch Tim struggle with the effect the real world can have on a virtual relationship. Their lives were ordinary, too, until they weren’t.

BOOK RELEASE: Another Kind of Romance, Vol 1

Who is the one love you’ll never get over? What obstacle would be too much to overcome? Would you kill for it? Would you die for it? Have you let it blind you? There are lots of ways to love but one constant is it makes us do things we never thought we could: give ourselves over completely to someone else. Whether it’s that one perfect someone from the past who slipped away but never left your heart or the one who viciously broke it. Do we run away from love because it’s messy and uncertain or do we continue to pursue it for those same reasons? Love stories come in all shapes and shades and happily ever after isn’t always the way it goes. Sometimes it’s a struggle to make it work and sometimes it doesn’t work out the way you thought it would. Let’s do an experiment. Look in a mirror and tell yourself a love story. Not the fantasy kind where sparks fly the first time your eyes meet. Tell the kind of story where you aren’t sure if you’re doing the right thing but can’t stop. Maybe your story will be like one of these. Here are seven stories that might surprise you. From Veronica and Evan, who fulfill each other’s needs in erotically dangerous ways, to Sharon and Vince, who touch each other in ways no one else can. From a husband and father struggling with inner doubts to a young woman enthralled by charm and sophistication. Each tale will transport you to places foreign but familiar. Places you just might find deep in your own heart.

Paul turned on his computer and signed into the account his wife didn’t know about.  He’d created it as someplace to play games without friends and family teasing him.  That was just about three years ago.  For the first two and a half years that’s exactly what happened, too.  But over the last six months or so things had changed.  The games were untouched, no doubt his crops withered on the vine, his top scores long since eclipsed.  None of which mattered as he watched the screen paint with agonizing slowness and his lack of patience rewarded with a red ‘1’ highlighted in the top left corner above the e-mail icon.  A new message from the only person who ever wrote to him there. He clicked the menu.

Natalie’s name appeared at the top of the list. 

LOL.  How did you guess?
