Those days of youth! Look at how sweet Art and Patricia look on their cover! Again, huge thanks to the wonderful and ever patient Bree Archer for gorgeous work. I'm going to be in contact with all the winners from the competition, by this weekend, and get this little bundle ready for release.
When I was in edits with Queen Barb, we had a mini chat about something. Intimacy. There's plenty between my two stars, but nothing explicitly sexual is written. I dunno man, me and Hot Muse Hank looked at each other and said at exactly the same time, "Swerve it." It just didn't feel right to write that sort of scene in this story. It didn't fit, it didn't work, even though I tried.
I - believe me - am not inhibited or a prude about sex and certainly not hesitant in throwing words around to describe the male and female anatomy. I am quite attached to the "p" word, but there we are. My usual enthusiasm for a shake down wilted when I was poised with typing how Art and Patricia and look I can't even do it now. It's like talking about my young children banging, and I refuse. So no explicit sex scenes here. I'd say sorry, and yet, I think when you do read it, you'll understand.
Besides, I've given all of it to Wynne and Bren, so you won't be missing much. Honest.
Studies of a blurb:
Patricia Nelson has the most important interview of her life coming up. It’s a world away from the girl she used to be. Her future relies on her being accepted into university, so no distractions. That means not getting turnt up, no drinks and definitely no boys. Not even Art. Beautiful, smart, convenient Art. She ain’t got time for that. Truly. None.
Arthur McWorth has never been thought of as a distraction. A nuisance. A terrible influence. The bane of his parents’ life, yes. But to a girl like Patricia, he’ll take distraction any day. Beautiful, smart and single Patricia. Since they’re practically family, he’ll help her get through her university interview. In exchange, he’s allowed to be someone altogether different. A boyfriend.
