Be careful what you write... this advice was given to me when I wrote my second book that introduces the misbehaving, all grown up bad boy, Jed Kane.
See, I have a confidante—my go-to-gal—who I like to run my stories by before I crack open the laptop and put those characters that are in my head (keeping me up all night) into their imaginary rightful place. But when I told my confidante about The Forbidden Claim, her face scrunched up, she winced, and said, “Ow... You better be careful; writing about human trafficking is difficult, and it can be even more dangerous when it’s in a romance novel!”
I thought about what she’d said and I agreed. But after hearing ‘difficult’ and ‘dangerous’, the writer in me was definitely up for the challenge. Besides, human trafficking may be a touchy subject but it certainly exists. I felt strongly the story needed to be told, and with characters like Jinx Collins and Jed Kane the story was told in a way that ended up working. Well... at least the jury is out for my ‘go-to-gal’ and Red Sage Publishing. Check out The Forbidden Claim and let me know what you think? Thanks for joining me today, and thank you, Long and Short Reviews, for inviting me to be a guest blogger on your site!
