BOOK EXCERPT

I dream she is like a wave in a lonely stream,

She is my only love living in my dream.

I dream her heart is chained to a tree,

Her leaves are fallen, but her heart is blown to me.

I dream she is drifting away in the sea,

But I see her coming back to me.

I dream she is a rainbow sitting on the clouds,

Her impeccable beauty makes me proud.

I dream she is the treasure of my life,

A stunning beauty that makes her my wife.

I have a dream she has grown to reach the skies,

I have a dream our immortal love will never die.

Her kisses are an ice-cold wind in the stormy night,

She stole my soul into her eyes glass for me to delight.

Inside The Fire (Day 4)

BLURB
 
The story takes place in Marseilles. Marseilles is a poor city in the South of France. It is a gate to Europe coming through the sea from North Africa. It was created more than 2000 years ago by Greek settlers coming from the town of Phocea, now on the Turkish coast.
 
Marseilles is today famous in Europe as a city of corruption and violence.
 
In this city was born an insane poet Antonin Artaud who wrote amazing books in the first part of the XXth century and is studied everywhere nowadays. However Artaud went mad and spent about ten years in an asylum in the last part of his life, all through WWII. Treated through intensive electroshock, he remained toothless after that.
 
Artaud is being referenced in the book by the nickname that his mother gave him as a child “Nanaqui,” which is also the one he uses in his own writing.
 
In this tale, Nanaqui comes back from the dead to visit us, with his companion Ivan (the Narrator). He is as obscene, crude, maniac, and delirious as a living dead could be. He meets a witch, Sarah, who drops by Marseilles on the way to the film festival of Cannes. Nanaqui wants to have an affair with her, but it turns out that she prefers a penguin to him (the penguin turns out to be gay actually).
 
The story could be read as a modern tale taking place in the blazing heat of Marseilles, by the Mediterranean Sea, a shore haunted by hundreds of years of decaying civilizations, and through Nanaqui, our hero by the spirit of both greatness and madness.
 
Warning: This book contains adult content, explicit language and is not suited for those below 18.
 
BOOK EXCERPT
 
“At the second turning of the second stair,” he said like in a weird painting by Francis Bacon.
 
I summon the fire and I summon the dead and I call out for some weird past gone for good deep under the coast of flesh as the sea drifts away from the land like a raft and we are lost at sea for good with only the seagulls over our head and some hazy clouds emaciated under the red sun and the child and the castle of sand and the tourists turning red too as the heat builds up like in an oven soon enough we will be smoke again to circle the earth as smoke and fall back like the black atomic rain over dying heads
 
“At the second turning of the second stair,” I watched my own figure reclining in the staircase to pick up a broken mirror but no… it was my cut-off head no… it was the reflection of my head in the broken mirror…

SAVING JASMINE (SATAN’S BEARS 1)

BLURB

All Maisy Stringfield wanted to do was to find her sister and make sure she was okay. Jasmine had disappeared before but never for this long. Something was wrong. Maisy took the job working at the Blazing Sun Bar and Biker’s club hoping to get information on where Jasmine might be.

She hadn’t counted on Stud, who was the president of the Satan’s bears and a complication she didn’t need. She didn’t need him chasing her around and interfering in what she needed to do.

Razor was the leader of the wolf pack and determined to take over the Bears and Stud’s territory. He didn’t care who he had to hurt to do it.

Stud was tired and ready to find his mate. When he saw the little waitress working in his bar, he knew she was his. Not to convince her. Keeping her safe while he persuaded her was another chore. He was surrounded by incompetents.

Could he defeat Razor, find Jasmine and convince Maisy to be his?

BOOK EXCERPT

“I like the way you say my name, Sweet Lips. Give me a little taste.”

Stud gently brushed her lips with his, and when she felt herself beginning to respond, he swiped her lips with his tongue. When she gasped, he slid his tongue into battle with hers. He moved his hand to thread through her hair and pull her tighter to him.

“Hey Boss,” she heard one of the guys calling as she started to melt into him. Stud ignored him and continued sipping from her lips as Maisy felt his hands roving her back. “Umm Boss? We need you.” The voice said again, more insistent this time.

“Did you fucking interrupt me?” Stud asked in a quiet, normal tone of voice as he stared deep into her eyes. “I ain’t done with you Mama, but I gotta see what this asshole needs. You save that sugar for me, hear?”

Maisy felt herself nodding before she realized what she was doing. Stud gently and slowly lifted her from his lap and turned to Harvey/Swifty. “Yeah?”

“Trouble, outside now. It’s the Hermits.”

“Well fuck. Okay Sweet Lips, I’ll be back for your fine ass later. Let’s roll boys.” He leaned down and brushed another soft kiss on her lips, then he was gone.

The Rushes(Day 2)

The Rushes e-book cover

 

BOOK DETAIL

PUBLISHER: AVID PUBLISHING LLC PUBLISHER WEBSITE: https://www.avid-publishing.com

RELEASE DATE: May 22, 2018

GENRE: Avid book, MM, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy/Drama, New/Young Adult.

WORD COUNT: 66,480 words

PAGE COUNT: 285 pages

BLURB

The Rushes is a brisk and funny tale of friendship, love and ambition set in present-day Hollywood. Aspiring filmmakers Jamie Alford and his BFF, Carson Thorne, must navigate the industry’s ruthless politics and ingrained prejudices, while also trying to maneuver the treacherous waters of romance.

For years, Jamie has been obsessing on his ex, the tortured Owen Worth. And just as he’s about to start afresh with a dashing young producer, Owen reappears to complicate his life.

Carson, who has put romance on the back burner to focus on his career (much to the chagrin of his friend and former film professor, David Mendoza), falls hard for a wildly ambitious screenwriter.

When Jamie and Carson’s best-laid plans are sabotaged by jealousy and betrayal, they must band together to help one another move forward both in their professional and personal lives. But after all, isn’t that what best friends are for?

BOOK EXCERPT

If it had only been a one-time thing, Jamie would have written off the encounter as the byproduct of adolescent hormonal fever. Even the most devout young man can succumb to temptation. But the next night, Owen was sitting outside his cabin again. And the next night and the next.

Each evening, they headed for the lake where they swam naked and kissed and held on to one another for dear life. And each night the lovemaking got better, until Jamie couldn’t believe that a few nights earlier, Owen had been a virgin; that he’d never even been kissed.

Now Jamie finally understood what it was all about; why wars were waged, kingdoms upended, hearts decimated. All for love.

No, it’s not love, Jamie, it’s lust. You’re too young to be in love.

But what may have begun as lust was growing into something more. He and Owen shared intimacies and affection and laughter. Even during the day, whenever they were within sight of each other, an unmistakable electrical charge passed between them. It was hard to miss, and even Toby picked up on it.

“Hey, what’s up with you and Big Bird?” he asked.

Jamie deflected by mentioning the family connection, but the explanation was paper thin.

“Spare me,” Toby said. “I’ve mooned over guys before. I know the look when I see it. You’re not fooling me and I hope you’re not fooling yourself.”

It was all happening so quickly that Jamie seesawed between euphoria and angst. The most telling sign that his emotional equilibrium had been compromised came during his phone calls to

Carson, during which he did not allude to Owen, except for that one time at the beginning of the summer when he mentioned meeting him. “He’s just about what you’d expect. Total loser.”

As far as Carson was concerned, he was still hooking up with Toby. And whenever he inquired, Jamie carefully steered the conversation back to Carson, which required very little effort. Jamie had long ago made peace with the fact that Carson’s favorite topic of conversation was himself – with movies running a close second – and used it to his advantage.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q. What inspired you to start writing?

A. My inspiration was having to make a living. Right out of grad school. Needed a job. Became a daily newspaper reporter. Learned how to write by writing every day.

Q. What was your childhood career dream?

A. My first dream was acting. But I soon learned that the downside of being an actor was having to work with other actors.

Q. What do you like to do when not writing?

A. I read. I watch movies. I listen to music.

Q. Which Author(s) inspire you and your writing?

A. Colm Toibin, Alan Bennett, Michael Cunningham, Alan Hollinghurst, Christopher Isherwood, Gore Vidal.

Q. What is an everyday writing life for you like?

A. Sometimes a pleasure. Sometimes torture.

Q. What is the hardest part about writing for you?

A. Self-doubt, procrastination.

Q. Which book was your debut release?

A. For Avid it was The Rushes. My first novella was Junior Willis. My first novel, Cafe Eisenhower

Q. Tell us about the book published by Avid and your writing process for it.

A. The Rushes grew out of my years reporting on the movie business as well as the numerous short stories I’ve written for Hollywood Dementia.com.

Q. Which character was the hardest for you to write in the book published by Avid.

A. The hardest character was the co-protagonist Jamie Alford, who has the biggest character arc.

Q. How do you come up with the titles of your book?

A. Sometimes it’s right there in front of me. The Rushes was the most difficult because it’s metaphorical. Rushes are raw film footage that has to be edited and coordinated into a movie.

The two main characters are like raw footage and have the edit their lives together. To use what’s good. To discard what doesn’t work.
