Research Trip in the planning!!!

So every year in November I take a trip to Illinois to see my Mom for a few days.  Well over the years she has been my biggest fan and supporter of my writing, granted she’s never read a thing I’ve written she’s always encouraging me and helping me with research. 

Well this November when I go for my visit we have a lot of research to do.  Since my paranormal erotica romance is set along Interstate 80, we plan to make a few stops and take photos of the I80 and the interstate 180 interchange, its an off ramp to a very short stretch of interstate, only about 5 miles it was built 30+ years ago for a steel mill that was in the area. I think it was called JPL Steel, but don’t quote me its been a long time since I was in that area.  This interchange has alot of wooded land and it makes the perfect spot for my first crime scene where our Heroine Gwen Davis(yes I changed her name) and Hero Drake Blackburn meet.  The attraction these two feel on first meeting each other is instantaneous, which makes keeping things professional a bit of a challenge.    

After our photo session there its off to a little known gun shop in Peru IL called, “Boomers and Blasters”  Yes that is the name I plan to get photos of this shop as well.  this is also where Gwen gets her “special” weapons.  Then the two of us will journey out to Walcott IA.  Now your thinking whats out there, well it is the home of the World’s Largest Truck Stop.  There will be lots for us to see there and photograph. 

Plus I’m also hoping to do a bit of target shooting myself, why should my Heroine have all the fun.  I’m really hoping to be able to get my hands on “The Judge” by Tauras, that is one gun I really want to fire.  One of those could do some nasty damage to a werewolf hybred serial killer…Till next time, I’m gonna be in my writing cave for awhile plotting this book as well as a few others.

Object placement in my works.

Oh sure that sounds rather mysterious. Well for a while I am going to keep it that way. I want to see how many of my readers can figure out what object keeps coming up in every story. After the first few it won’t be hard to figure out. Lets just say its an accessory a man wears everyday, that was a hint. Some of my readers may get this right away just from this post. Thats ok. But lets keep it a secret for awhile…Shhhhhh…

What I am currently working on now, and how I am inspired.

I carry a notebook around with me all the time.  I find things of inspiration everywhere.  It could be a place, a conversation I over hear, smells, or colors even.  I find it everywhere, even in coffee.  I love how coffee tastes, the bitter and the mellow the sweet and creamy and the smell.  Mmmm coffee, the elixer of life especially the first thing in the morning.  I’m lucky I have a programable coffee maker and at 5:10a.m. every morning I have fresh wonderful coffee to start my day.  Here is an excerpt from my one of my projects with coffee as a focal point.

He’d been watching her for a week now. 

No, he wasn’t a stalker.  She had moved into his neighborhood a few weeks ago.  She stopped every morning at the local coffee shop, the same one he sat at, at an outdoor table. She got a large coffee and a raisin bagel.  He watched her walk down the sidewalk toward the coffee shop.  In the past week their eyes had met a couple times, smiles were exchanged.  Drew made it clear in his smile that he was interested in her.  He could tell she was not unaffected by him.  Each time she met his eyes, she smiled, looked down and tucked a caramel colored curl behind her ear.  As she entered the coffee shop, he noticed, more than once, her hand tremble as she opened the door.

Over the course of the week he’d gotten to “know her”.  Drew speculated that she worked in fashion by the way she dressed and the huge tote bag she hauled around, who knew what was in it.  Her makeup, fresh and light, not too dark for her fair complexion, she had a curvy body that invited hands to roam all over it.  Breasts that seemed a bit too large for her frame and her ass invited a man to caress and fondle it.  Drew felt his cock stir as he thought about her ass.  A quick glance through the coffee shop window gave him an excellent view of the ass in question.  Yes, he was an ass man for sure.  But for now, that would have to wait.  He had been watching it all week, walk away after she got her coffee, its slight wiggle as she walked away captivating him.   ***

Let me know what you think so far, yes there is more… I wouldn’t leave you hanging, well maybe for a little bit, because I’m kind of like that…;)

Happy reading
