Trivial Facts About Love Type Situation

With just less than 2 day for the release. I thought you might want to know some trivial facts about my May/December erotic romance, Love Type Situation.




Trivial Facts about Love Type Situation.


1. First written in the summer of 2014. It all began with a short story about a forty year old woman going with a man who just turned twenty one. The story wasn’t picked up again until December 2014.

2. When I originally wrote the story, Sadie Mendez was supposed to work under Anderw’s mother, but the feeling of the story was too over-explanatory and boring. I wanted to be interesting.

3. Andrew Bishop was originally named Andrew Moynihan, but in order to take the story to a more hip level. I came across with the last name Bishop from a character of 1992’s motion picture Juice, acted by Tupac Shukar.

4. The original title of the story was called, If Loving You Was Wrong, but the story plot didn’t fit with the title.

5. Love Type Situation was inspired by Lisette Melendez’s 1994 song Love Type Situation.

6. The setting of the story was supposed to take place in New Jersey, but when I scrapped the original plot of the story, I decided to take the setting to San Francisco.

7. Andrew Bishop, as the DJ, was the reflection of me when I used to work as a club DJ from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. I was the only straight man working in a gay club from 2001 – 2002, where I was able to play the house music.

8. Since Sadie’s original character didn’t sit well going for a young man in his mid twenties (she was originally forty years old), I decided Sadie’s age to be in her early thirties.

9. The Stinson Beach scene was inspired by my trip to Marin County, California in May 2014.

10. The most difficult part of the story was the middle, where I had to revise over and over to have the build up to the sex scenes in the story.

11. There were a number of songs that inspired me to write the story:
  • If I Ever Fall In Love by Shai (1992)
  • To Be Able to Love by Jessica Folker (The Jonathan Peters Remix) (2001)
  • It’s Gonna Be Alright  by Pussy 2000 (2001)
  • Killing Me Softly by Fugees (1996)
  • All Is Well by Karamel Kel (2012)
  • Girlfriend by N’Sync feat Nelly (2002)
  • Revive by LuvBug (2014)

12. The official project took me three months to complete, in March 2015. The story would have been released some time around early summer or late spring, but there were a number of delays to move the story forward.

13. I, the author, had never lived in San Francisco, but I’m very inspired with the Bay Area lifestyle.

14. Club Bliss is a fictional night club, located in the Castro District of San Francisco, inspired by an actual gay nightclub called Lookout. The only place that actually exists from the story is Orphan Andy’s, a landmarked restaurant on Market Street, serving real comfort food. Did you know Harvey Milk used to dine there in the late seventies?

Be on the look out for the release, this Monday!

Flash Fiction Friday - 08/14/2015: Drats!

Welcome to another segment of Flash Fiction Friday.

Today, I'm doing a little quick comedy in 100 words.

Enjoy!


The man was determined to make it atop of the mountain. He was determined to meet her and prove to her that her love was worth chasing. While he work his way through a small ledge of the mountain, his fingers almost lost grip from the rocks, but he managed to regain his grip, and continued climbing until he met her, sitting atop of the mountain, legs crossed and shirtless with a sexy grin.

“Did you bring protection?” She asked.

The man was happily excited, but when he reached in his pocket, he realized he dropped his condom from climbing.

Thursday Tasters - 08/13/2013: Love Type Situation


Welcome to another segment of Thursday Tasters.

Today, I'm excited about the forthcoming release of my book - Love Type Situation, which will release on Monday, August 24th.

In this scene, I'm going to post a scene between Sadie and Dustin.

Sadie had just had a dinner date with Andrew, and she rode the bus home where she was greeted by Dustin, who was waiting for her in the car. Things become a little tense, because she was avoiding his calls all day long. 

Anyways, come check out this piece in 389 words.




“Sadie, where the hell have you been? I’ve been calling you all day! Why haven’t you answered my calls?”
She knew why, but she played it off as she pulled her cell phone out of her purse and checked the missed calls on display. Dustin had been calling her all day, and she noticed three voicemails. Now he was waiting for her in front of the apartment complex? This man had gone psycho.
“I’m really sorry, Dustin. I just realized that I had my phone on mute all day.” She looked at her calls. “Hell, I even missed a call from my mother.”
“Where did you go?” Dustin inquired.
“I was out job hunting?”
“Job hunting?” He shot her an odd look. “Why? Sadie, you don’t need to work. I’ll take care of you.”
“Take care of me?” She snapped and looked at him in disbelief. “Dustin, I don’t need a man to take care of me. I mean, I appreciate what you did for me these the last few months, but I want to work. I want to take care of myself.”
Dustin tried to persuade her with his charming demeanor. “If you work, how am I going to see you?”  He took a step closer and pulled her to him. “Come here. I missed you all day, and you look really hot in that outfit. You make me want to take you home and do dirty stuff to you.”
 Pulling away from him, she said, “No, not tonight. I’m not feeling well.”
“Sadie, what’s wrong?” Dustin asked, concerned.
 “I’m just not feeling well. And you can forget about getting some tonight. I just started.”
Dustin gave her a dumbfounded look. “Oh …” He let her go and took a step back. ”Okay then, perhaps I should come back when you’re not … you know ….
Sadie wanted to slap him silly for his comment. Is that all she was to him, just a sex toy? He wanted her at home during the day so he could come around and fuck her then go back home to his wife! She couldn’t believe the shit that was coming out of his mouth. If she could only kick him in the balls and make him wake up to reality.
“I don’t fucking believe you!” She grimaced, walking away. “Goodbye, Dustin!”

Thanks for stopping by.

Tantalizing Tuesday Teaser - 08/11/2014: Temptations From Destiny


Welcome to another segment of Tantalizing Tuesday Teasers.

I'm happy to come up with something naughty this Tuesday evening.

Enjoy!


Royce woke up in his sofa when he heard the doorbell. He wasn’t expecting any company, since he had the entire week off from his job. He longed for a vacation, where he didn’t have to worry about hearing customer complaints, co-workers whining about his job, and finally his boss from coming down on him when things went wrong. He was going to relax at home, doing nothing but catch up on lost sleep, but who the hell was at the door?

He opened the door and noticed a woman with very short dark hair, dressed conservatively in a long black dress that displayed sophistication. It was Destiny, the boss’s daughter coming over. He had her spend the night over his place, just to sober up. Now that she knew where he lived, things were getting a little complicated to tell her no.

“I heard you were staying home on vacation. Mind if I come over?”

Royce, knowing the consequences of having her over, shook his head with a response. “Destiny, you know this is a bad idea.”

She raised up the hem of her black dress, from the side, displaying the dark lacy underwear she’s wearing when she pouted. “Are you sure?”

Thanks for stopping by.

Thursday Tasters - 08/06/2015: Love Type Situation (Killing Me Softly Scene)


Hey, welcome to another segment of Thursday Tasters.

Just four day until the cover reveal of Love Type Situation, and I want to give you 
another taste of my forthcoming release to my May/December erotic romance - Love Type Situation.

For those who have signed up for the cover reveal, thank you. Your help is appreciated.

Anyways, enjoy this snippet in 293 words.

Enjoy!



Andrew put on a song by The Fugees, “Killing Me Softly”. It was a great song for the crowd to mellow out to, yet leave the club feeling good. As for Sadie, she let the feeling of the song’s accapella hit her soul before the instrumentals and beats made her sway sensuously. The hip hop beat had her moving while she extended her arm and then her finger, signaling Andrew to come out and dance.
Andrew set his headphones down and stepped off the stage. He approached her with a grin, asking, “Sadie, may I have this dance?”
Sadie smiled at him. “I thought you’d never ask.”
The two moved close together. They danced among the crowd of people, mostly men, swaying  to the beat.
“You know that’s one of my favorite songs. It brings back some memories.”
“I remember you telling me that when you worked at the youth center years ago.”
“Really?” She was impressed by his memory. “Good memory.”
They danced close. Sadie loved the feel of his hands along the sides of her curves. He was firm but gentle, and Sadie was hoping he would move his hands to places that would get her aroused. She began throwing signals at him as she gazed into his eyes.  She noticed a slight hesitation from him. And then it began to bother her as she asked herself, Why won’t he kiss me? They were halfway into the song, and Sadie was beginning to have doubts that he would ever kiss her.
“Sadie, can I ask you a question?”
“Uh-huh,” She murmured, suddenly seductive.
“How tall are you?”
“Without the heels, I’m five nine.”

“Then you’re the perfect height for me to do this …” He leaned in and kissed her lips.
