RANDOM ACTS IS BORN!! Visit my blog for chance to win a T-shirt!!!
Come celebrate with Mia the birth of Bradley and Caleb…
Today is October 13th—I sincerely hope a LUCKY 13 for Bradley, Caleb, and Mia—the birthday of my newest adult release, RANDOM ACTS!!
And with this emergence of a new storyline, comes the birth of two new characters.
Bradley Zelder: Yes, admittedly inspired by Bradley Cooper and a sort of character that he often plays. The bad boy, and very naughty, but with a good heart. That is my Bradley. He finds himself in too many women’s beds, physically rather satisfied, but desperate to escape the emotional aspects of relationships.
Caleb Jorde: Inspired by a person I know in real life that cannot be named. (Mysterious, huh?) Classy and perfect and proper and righteous. But inside Caleb is constantly trying to escape his profound fear of random events that he knows can take away his stability.
My idea for the storyline came from the concept of seeing an apparently proud and strong man brought low by random events he cannot control or avoid. To compliment that idea, I thought, let’s see what happens when the obviously broken and damaged person in the relationship must be the one to save the man who seems to have it all. Random Acts is a story of the turning of tables. Of saving each other. Of a cyclical pattern of loving behavior that is required by two very different men in order to deal with the random positive and negative events life throws at them.
Random events—accidents, acts of kindness, acts of violence—are what Bradley and Caleb must face and adapt to in my new release from Dreamspinner Press, Random Acts.
Have you ever been subject to a random act of kindness that you would like to share? Leave a comment on my blog about a random event or just say hello and you will be entered into a drawing to win a Random Acts T-shirt!!
Enjoy the book!!
