“You wanted to see me, Lieutenant General Espinoza?”
“Yes, Captain Botterill. Please come in and close the door.”
Captain Abigail Botterill entered General Espinoza’s office. She was a slender, willowy, red-haired woman of medium height appearing to be in her late twenties. She had a flawless alabaster complexion and exquisite violet eyes. Despite her delicate appearance, Captain Botterill commanded respect. She exuded a definite “fuck around and find out” energy.
Lieutenant General Beowulf Espinoza locked the door behind Captain Botterill. Looking like a leading man from a 1940s action movie, he ran his hand over his wavy, dark-brown hair, his black coffee eyes twinkling merrily.

When Elias Król competed in the El Paso Decathlon on an August day in 1978, he was proud to take first place. Little did he know the best prize wasn't his hard-won trophy; it was the bond he would form with the sweet young woman taking his order at the fried chicken booth.
Madison Sanders wasn't looking for love while working at her family's concession stand, but love was about to find her in the form of a lanky red-haired athlete.
This short and sweet interracial romance with a guaranteed Happy Ever After is part of a developing series but it can also stand on its own. With a very low heat rating and no profanity, it is appropriate for both teen and adult readers.
I'm sharing from the second chapter. The entire first chapter is available at the following link.
“Hey, Darlin’, what can I do you for?”
The power of speech temporarily evaded Elias. He hemmed and hawed and cleared his throat. The big-hearted angel came to his rescue with a cool cup of iced tea.
“Don’t go chug-a-luggin’ it now, y’all don’t wanna give yourself a bellyache,” she warned.
Elias sipped the tea and blamed his flushed face on the heat.
“Thanks,” he said. “Sure is hot out today, ain’t it?”
“Sure is, and yet here us crazy fools are. Y’all are runnin’ in the heat, and I’m standin’ back here with sizzlin’ fry baskets and a grill. Y’all want somethin’ to eat, or do ya have another race to run?”
(Plus just a morsel more...)
“Nah, I’m done for the day. I’m ready to chow down,” Elias replied, glancing at his rescuer’s name tag. “Is there anything special that y’all recommend—um—Maddy?”

I'm happy to do a post for a post or a tweet for a tweet. Your books will be promoted on Readers Roost. I just need a media kit. Comment with your email so I can get back to you or email me at email@example.com. It helps if you write your subject line in all caps so I'm less likely to miss it.
Don't DM me on Twitter. I never check my DMs.
February 2 question - Is there someone who supported or influenced you that perhaps isn't around anymore? Anyone you miss?
My father inspired my love of reading. He was a professor of language arts and humanities. He was trying to write a book after he cut back to teaching part time. Sadly, he had a major hemorrhagic stroke just days after his 68th birthday and full retirement. He had several smaller strokes after that and developed vascular dementia. His book was never completed. He died on November 28, 2010.
I became part of a group of bloggers when I started blogging in 2005. I maintain contact with a couple of them. It was a fun experience leaving quippy comments on one another's blogs. I miss it but I wouldn't have time for it now.
