Building it

August 19th, 2014

When creating a story with a town of community it takes many parts to get a sense of what this place is all about. I love creating towns and various types of families. In building towns or communities, they all have their own idiosyncrasies that make them unique. You build it with many layers that not only include the setting but the people, sights and sounds that make a place.

If you think of your own hometown there is no place else in the world like it. There might be similarities but there are things that make it uniquely your hometown. This is what I go for when I write any story. Making it familiar like somewhere, you have been but with differences that make the town special. It is an amazing thing building a place from scratch. Creating the people that inhabit it. Making them live to those reading. The sights that make you know that you are in this town with these people. The sounds that capture you if you walk down the street.

With any good structure all the pieces must be laid together to create a mosaic that tells a story. I want to take you on a journey that engages all the senses. Building it so you can feel like you are part of it. There is nothing better to me than that.

Totally Bound
By: McKenna Jeffries
Coming August 22, 2014
Genre: Contemporary
Series: Rules of Attraction, Book # 1
Length: Short Novel
Format: E-Book

A memorable encounter brings a man in the path of a woman who will set his pulse racing and make him long for forever.

For Bailey Rueben, giving into temptation leads her to knocking a man off his feet. When she finds out who he is, she’s the one who’s swept away. She wants to get to know this man who makes her pulse race. In Garrick, she finds someone who makes her wish she believed in love, but she won’t let that happen to her. Fun is all she wants with him…or does her heart want more?

Garrick Radley has been off the market for a long time and is rusty with the current dating rituals. When he has an opportunity to get near the woman who has captured his attention, he takes it. The misunderstanding that follows makes him wonder if he should continue not to date yet Bailey changes his mind. As he gets to know her, he realizes that he is already in deep. Now it’s just a matter of getting Bailey to accept their mating scents.
