This will be my last post for the day. It's been great hanging out with everyone, but my husband has this strange idea that I should pay some attention to him now...
I'll leave you (well, sort of; I will still check back to answer comments and questions) with some random thoughts about where ideas come from and whether three's company or a crowd.
Several years ago, I met a guy, and we became friends--and briefly, a little more. Then he disappeared. Two years ago, we ran into each other, and the friendship rekindled. The "a little more" almost did too, but I'd just moved in with the man who's now my husband, so the "little more" wouldn't exactly have been appropriate.
The guy has been a good friend and a big influence on me since I've known him, so it shouldn't have been surprising that he would also influence a novel. Shiny Objects was my version of a "what if"--in this case, what if a woman actually did have a relationship with two men? A question spurred, of course, by the situation with my friend. In fact, he even helped me write a scene for the novel, and the book is dedicated to him and my husband.
Shiny Objects will be released mid-August from Passion in Print Press. When it's available, you'll be able to find it on the Passion in Print website. You can also find out a little more about it on the Upcoming page of my website.
