Welcome Kenra Daniels to my place today telling us more about how she wrote her latest release!
Hi Victoria – Thanks so much for having me!
When I first started playing around with the idea for Tight Spaces, I had no intentions of actually doing anything with it. See, I’m a Paranormal Romance writer, and, although my paranormals are steamy, the plots are generally more complex than most of the contemporaries I’ve read. When a couple has four separate factions trying to keep them apart, and at least two of those factions would prefer them dead, there isn’t much time for flirting or going dancing.
As I finished edits on Safe Heart: Blood Dragon I (the Paranormal I have on submission now), I found myself with several chapters worth of scenes that suddenly had no book. It seemed a shame to let them sit there and collect dust on my hard drive. So, I read back through them, preparing to use parts of them for a Paranormal short story I’d been thinking of.
Except, the chapters didn’t have a great deal of paranormal content. Developing characters and story line and plot would take a good bit of work, and time I didn’t have. So, I shelved the idea for a few days.
Then my Critique Partner and bestie, Azure Boone (http://www.azureboone.com) and I were talking one day, about a contemporary Erotic Romance she’d just started working on. The conversation evolved and she ended up suggesting I do something contemporary.
From there, it was pretty simple to add to those deleted chapters and scenes, rewriting them, into a contemporary Erotic Romance novella. In the midst of deciding on specific details for the story, it seemed natural to develop those details to fit a series. And the Double Dare Club was born.
The Double Dare Club is the nightclub the bulk of Tight Spaces takes place in. The other stories in the series will be connected with the nightclub in some way.
To celebrate the release of Tight Spaces, I’m giving away some copies of the novella, a $10 Amazon Gift Card, and I’m working on some other things, but I don’t have confirmation on those yet. To read an excerpt, enter the giveaway, and find out more about the Double Dare Club, stop by http://kenradaniels.com/double-dare for more information.
Oh, and while you’re at my site, check out the new page for Archangel’s Creed while you’re at my site to get a sneak peek at the project Azure Boone and I are working on.
Victoria, thanks again for having me here! I look forward to having you visit my blog!
Now for a little more about Tight Spaces and an Excerpt!
With the first anniversary of the messy break up of a long-term relationship bearing down, Amy has the blues. When her friends suggest an evening at the Double Dare, she reluctantly agrees to go along. She doesn’t do the casual sex thing, but it’ll be good to spend time with her friends.
Seeing Jesse at the Double Dare immediately cheers her up. She’s fantasized over him for months. The evening gets more pleasant as they heat up the dance floor. Things go from hot to sizzling, until her ex shows up and confronts Amy in a low blow. Will his interference deter Jesse and Amy from continuing what could be the start of something wonderful?
His smile broadened when his gaze arrived at her generous breasts. “That’s an awfully nice dress for a dump like this, Sweetheart.” His voice, rumbly and intimate, sent a charge directly to Amy’s pussy.
She licked her lips before answering, causing heat to flare in his eyes. “It’s my favorite, so I decided what the hell.”
“If you get tired of the jerks inside, come on back out and keep me company a while. I know how to treat a lady.” His voice promised a good time.
Feeling especially daring, Amy made of point of letting her skirt brush against his pant leg as she walked past. “I’ll just bet you do.” With a long look over her shoulder, she headed on through the heavy steel door.
God! Had she really done that? Embarrassment heated her cheeks. Never in her life had she behaved that way! Every male without sight would read her actions as coming from a bitch in heat. Hopefully those young jerks hadn’t paid attention. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to resist paying her a visit.
