So, today I’ll chat about the insanity that is my mind at work. Since it never appears to quite go silent in this head, there’s a lot of talk about. I wonder if this is where you should all be afraid?
Ok, seriously, where do the ideas come from? I get asked that a lot in interviews, so I find it a good place to begin. This particular title, which has become part one of a set of three, has a personal story behind it. I have a friend in Italy – he’s very special. At Christmas, we wanted to spend some part of the Holiday together, even if it was visiting via webcam and email. So I decided that my gift would be a story for him. He’s studying for a doctorate, and I was supposed to be working, but I don’t know that either of us was really focused on what we were supposed to be doing. This is how a long distance love affair begins, I think… with a desire to be together in whatever way it’s possible.
So, working from the reality of our situation, the conversations that were honestly so outrageously flirtatious, the idea for a “game” was born – The Game of Seduction. It’s easy to “be” anything you want when you talk to people online – we all know that. We can become whatever we want to be. But, I also believe that if you feel an honest and real bond with someone, what you want to be is who you really are, not a fiction. In that way, as a wise friend of mine pointed out – because of the internet, for the first time you have the opportunity to fall in love with a person’s mind long before you actually meet them… and I think there’s a lot of truth in that. You get to see how a person thinks, and how well you connect in the only way that will really matter over time.
Games of Seduction is the first part of a three part story that will watch this love affair go from being a fantasy from far away to a solid and enduring love. I’ve done a video for it...you can see it here:
Part One is: GAMES OF SEDUCTION, which is available as of May 25th at Moongypsy Press. You can find the details at my website, or my page at the publisher website: http://www.moongypsypress.com/bridger.php
Part Two is: CANDLELIT SEDUCTION – inspired by a gorgeous photograph I saw. (I’ve used it in the video)
Part Three is: THERE IS ONLY YOU – and it’s the HEA that is the stuff of dreams!!
Tomorrow, I’ll post a sexy excerpt from the book!
