It’s less than three weeks away until the release of my erotica series, INKomplete. To celebrate, I’ve been writing a few guest blogs over at the P&K blog – one for each story in the series.
For the first blog, I talk about what I call my “bam!” moments—the moment that a few ideas collide together to create a story. I’ve heard other writers call them Eureka moments or the “moment of conception,” which sounds very grand to me! Read my guest blog to find out what my Bam! moment was for INKarnate.
For the second blog… I wrote about the idea of single parent sacrifices and how single parents seem to give up so much more than couple-parents. It was an idea I explored in my second story, INKapable, and I wanted to explain how I approached Joe’s story.
Head over to P&K to read my words. The third one is due soon!
When Emily begins an apprenticeship at the renowned tattoo studio INKomplete, she didn’t realise she was stepping into a world very different from her middle-class upbringing. But not everybody is happy about her dipping her toe into new waters. Famous tattoo artist, Matt Jones, knows she doesn’t belong. What’s he got against her, and how far will he go to drive her away?
After her husband walked out on her, leaving her to provide for their daughter alone, Joe has no intention of relying on a man for anything ever again. As a successful tattoo artist, she can take care of what’s hers. The only thing she needs is a little fun every now and again. And if a gorgeous man offers her exactly what she needs, if they both know what they’re getting into, it can’t get messy, can it?
Phee has breast cancer. As heart-breaking as it is, she’s determined to be strong so her friends don’t worry. They’re a family, so if she hurts, they hurt, and she can’t allow that. But when lines start to blur between her and her handsome surgeon, trying to hold everything together suddenly feels like the real fight.
It’s been five years since Blakey’s beautiful wife Elizabeth died and his grief is just as sharp today as it was back then. But now he’s desperately lonely too. As he becomes closer to his friend Aisleyne, Blakey fights it with everything he has. How could he even think about moving on? No, friendship is all he has to offer. That will have to be enough.
