I try to keep the blog topics to fantasy, science fiction and other speculative fiction (even poetry), however, today I’m making an exception for fellow fantasy author and Story Empire contributor, Harmony Kent. Perhaps you’ll find the book interesting:
Hello, everyone. Harmony here. First up, huge thanks to P.H. for hosting me today! He’s letting me visit today so that I can tell you about my latest book, Backstage. It is an erotic romance novel and deals with some of the sexual coercion scandals that have hit the acting industry in the last year.
Here’s a bit about the book for you:
SHE’S A HOPEFUL ACTRESS
Just when Emma thinks she’s found love. Just when her big chance comes. Just as she finds a little confidence at long last. Right then, it all goes horribly wrong.
HE’S HER MENTOR
John believed he had found ‘the one’. But the demons of his past wouldn’t allow him to break the leash, and when he gets the wrong end of the stick, it just confirms all his old prejudices and hurts.
THEN THERE’S THE BIG MAN WHO CAN MAKE OR BREAK A CAREER, AND THE DEMANDS HE MAKES
Derek Prentis is his name. Coercion is his game. He’s the man with the money. The big man who wants to keep Emma under his control and who will do anything to keep it that way.
THE PERFECT STORM OF ROMANCE, PASSION, AND GREED.
AWAY FROM THE LIMELIGHT, IT’S ALL HAPPENING BACKSTAGE.
And here is a ‘sneek peek’ …
Emma had just put the lid back on the lippy when a knock sounded at the door, muffled by all the garments hung on the back of it. She froze.
‘Emma? It’s me. You okay in there?’
Before attempting a reply, she cleared her throat softly and readied herself. ‘Yes. Fine, thanks.’
Silence fell for a second or two. Just when she thought he’d gone, he called through, ‘Can I come in? You decent?’
Emma laughed like Jayne would and said, ‘When am I ever?’
John chuckled but persisted, ‘So, can I come in?’
Now she felt trapped. She couldn’t just give him the brush off. If she did that, she wouldn’t need any Dereks of the world to wreck her chances.
With one final check in the mirror, she rose and opened the door. ‘Sure,’ she said, ‘come on in.’
When he saw her, he did a double-take. His eyes went wide and round, and his jaw formed an ‘O’ of shock. He rubbed at his chin before he took a step forward. ‘Emma?’
She couldn’t take his scrutiny, so she backed up and turned away, busying herself with tidying the make-up. The awkward silence stretched on. Emma looked at him via the mirror. He stood behind her, just in front of the open door, and watched her. Again, he queried, ‘Emma?’
When she didn’t answer, he turned it into a command, ‘Emma.’
She stilled and stiffened, waiting.
