Book Excerpt ‘Just Remember to Breathe’

I’m proud to host an excerpt from “Just Remember to Breathe”, a new adult romance novel by author Charles Sheehan-Miles today. I very much enjoyed reading this excerpt, and I hope you do as well!

Book Excerpt

Nothing Significant at all (Alex)
I was late when I got to the Arts and Sciences building, and ran up the six flights of step to the third floor, knowing the elevator would take forever. I checked my phone … it was three o’clock. I needed to get there right now.
I counted down the room numbers, finally reaching a dark hall. The light was out at the end of the hall, casting the area in not quite darkness. There it was, room 301. Next to the door, a student sat, his head resting on his fist, face turned away from me. He was reading a book.
I took a breath. His hair reminded me of Dylan’s, but shorter, of course. That, and his arms were… well, very muscular, and he was tanned. This guy looked like someone out of a catalog. Not that I went fainting over guys with big biceps, but seriously, a girl can look, right?
As I approached though, I felt my heart begin to thump in my chest. Because the closer I got, the more he looked like Dylan. But what would he be doing here? Dylan, who had broken my heart, then disappeared as if he’d never existed, his email deleted, Facebook page closed, Skype account gone. Dylan, who had erased himself from my life, all because of a stupid conversation that shouldn’t have happened.
I slowed down. It couldn’t be. It just… couldn’t be.
He took a breath and shifted position slightly, and I gasped. Because sitting in front of me was the boy who broke my heart. Quietly, I said, “Oh, my God.”
He jumped to his feet. Or rather tried to. He got about halfway up, and a look of excruciating pain swept across his face and he fell down, hard. I almost cried out, as he tried to force his way back up. I started forward to help, and he said his first words to me in six months: “Don’t touch me.”
Typical. I had to stuff down the hurt that threatened to burst to the surface.
He looked… different. Indefinably different. We hadn’t seen each other face to face in almost two years, not since the summer before my senior year in high school. He’d filled out, of course. In all the right places. His arms, which I vividly remembered being held in, had doubled in size. The sleeves of his tee shirt looked like they were going to burst. I guess the Army does that for you. His eyes were still the same piercing blue. For a second I met them, then looked away. I didn’t want to get trapped in those eyes. And damn it, he still smelled the same. A hint of smoke and fresh ground coffee. Sometimes when I walked into a coffee shop in New York, I’d get an overwhelming sensation of him being there, just from the smell. Sometimes memory sucks.
“Dylan,” I said. “What are you doing here?”
“I’m waiting for an appointment.”
“Here?” I asked. That was crazy.
He shrugged. “Work study assignment.”
No.
No way.
“Wait a minute… are you saying you’re in school here?”
He nodded.
“What happened to the Army?” I asked.
He shrugged, looked away, then gestured toward the cane.
“So of all the schools you could have chosen, you came here? To the same place as me?”
Anger swept over his face. “I didn’t come here for you, Alex. I came here because it was the best school I could get in to. I came here for me.”
“What, did you think you could just show up and sweep me back into your arms after ignoring me for the last six months? After erasing me from your life?”
He narrowed his eyes, looked at me directly. In a cold voice, he said, “Actually, I was hoping I just wouldn’t run into you.”
I stifled a sob. I was not going to let him get to me. I spat back, “Well, looks like we both had some bad luck. Because I’m here for my work-study assignment, too.”
His eyes widened. “You’re going to be working for Forrester?”
“Is he the so-called author in residence?”
He nodded.
“Oh, God,” I said. “I’m going to be sick.”
“Thanks. It’s great to see you too, Alex.”
I almost shouted at him, but a jovial voice down the hall called to us. “Hello! You two must be my new research assistants!”
A ridiculous looking man, trying way too hard to look like an author with a capital A, walked toward us. He wore a tweed jacket, with leather patches on the elbows, and corduroy pants. He couldn’t have been much older than thirty-five, but he wore reading glasses perched halfway up his nose.
“Well, hello,” he said. “I’m Max Forrester.”
“Alex Thompson,” I said. I glanced at Dylan. He was glaring at me.
“Dylan Paris,” he said.
“Come in, Alex and Dylan. My apologies for being late. Sometimes I get lost in the throes of creation and forget the time.”
Forrester’s back was already to me as he unlocked his door. I rolled my eyes. Lost in the throes of creation, indeed. You could smell the whiskey on his breath from fifteen feet away. Smelled like he’d gotten lost in the nearest watering hole.
Dylan waved me ahead of him. He was leaning heavily on the cane. What happened to him? I walked in behind Forrester, and Dylan followed me, limping.
“Sit down, you two, sit down. Can I get you some tea? Water? Or something with a little more, um… life?”
“No thanks,” Dylan said, grimacing as he eased himself into his seat. Once seated, he leaned his cane against the wall. His expression was unreadable.
“I’ll take some water,” I said, just to contradict him.
Forrester filled up a small glass with water at a tiny sink in the back of the office and brought it to me. My eyes narrowed a little when I got a look at the glass. It was filthy. Eww. And there was something oily floating on top of the water.
I pretended to take a sip, then set it on the edge of the desk.
“Well, let’s get down to business,” Forrester said. “Do you two know each other?”
“No,” I said, forcefully, just as Dylan said, “Yes.”
Forrester liked that. A smile lit up on his face, then said, “I bet there’s a story there.”
“You’d be wrong,” I replied. I glanced at Dylan, and said, “Nothing significant at all.”
Dylan blinked, and he darted his eyes away from me.
Good. Part of me wanted to hurt him just as badly as he had hurt me.
Unfortunately, Forrester picked up on it. He said, very slowly, “I trust there won’t be a problem.”
“No, no problem,” I said.
“No, sir,” Dylan responded, his voice cool.
“Well then,” Forrester said. “That’s good. So, let me tell you what you’ll be doing. I’m here for a year, and I’m working on a novel. Historical fiction, centered around the draft riots here in New York during the civil war. Are you familiar with them?”
I shook my head, but Dylan said, “Yes. Sad story… some of it turned to lynch mobs.”
Forrester nodded, enthusiastically. “That’s right. Miss Thomas… the story is this. In July 1863, there was a series of riots here in the city. It was mostly poor and working class Irish, protesting because the rich could buy exemption from the draft. The protests turned ugly, then violent. A lot of people were killed.”
“They burned down the orphanage,” Dylan said. What a brown-noser.
“That’s right, Dylan! The colored orphanage burned to the ground. A dozen or more black men were lynched during the riots.”
“So…” I said. “What exactly will we be doing to help?”
“Well, you see, Columbia has a mass of historical material about the riots. Much of it primary sources. As I work on my outline and the actual manuscript, your job will be to help me with the details. The historical context, the source material, all of the information I’ll need to get the story just right.”
“That’s… incredible,” Dylan said. “No offense, Doctor Forrester, but this is way better than I expected as a work study assignment.”
Oh, God. This was going to be one long year.

Just Remember to Breathe

Title: Just Remember to Breathe
Author: Charles Sheehan-Miles
Genre: New Adult Romance
Publisher: Cincinnatus Press
Publication Date: November 12th 2012

Alex Thompson’s life is following the script. A pre-law student at Columbia University, she’s focused on her grades, her life and her future. The last thing she needs is to reconnect with the boy who broke her heart.

Dylan Paris comes home from Afghanistan severely injured and knows that the one thing he cannot do is drag Alex into the mess he’s made of his life.

When Dylan and Alex are assigned to the same work study program and are forced to work side by side, they have to make new ground rules to keep from killing each other.

Only problem is, they keep breaking the rules.

The first rule is to never, ever talk about how they fell in love.

Author Bio

I’m a forty-ish writer of several novels including Republic, Insurgent, Prayer at Rumayla and Just Remember to Breathe. I’ve got a few short stories and two non-fiction books out there as well.

My background: I spent some time traveling the Middle East on my own in the late nineteen eighties, then went back courtesy of the United States Army as a tank crewman during the 1991 Gulf War. After that I spent most of the next two decades pursuing dual careers: nonprofit activist and information technology professional. Eventually the two combined: from 2003 until 2009 I was completely in the nonprofit sector, served as executive director of two nonprofits and director of IT of a third.

Unfortunately, when the 2008 economic crash hit, it took my career with it. For several years I had to retool, and managed restaurants in the Atlanta area. Recently I found my way back into my chosen career: I work in veterans outreach and public affairs for a law firm which represents disabled veterans. In my free time I write books, this blog, play with the kids, and generally try to make it through life doing as much good as possible.

Three strangers share with you, the events that took place ten months ago that changed their lives forever.

Javier escapes his abusive relationship with Rick. But can he trust his traveling companion as they head to Arkansas for safety?

Ryan dreams of the world outside of Arkansas; his only way out is college. Meanwhile, Ryan’s friend returns for the summer with a shocking gift. Can Ryan stop dreaming and focus on the nightmare brewing around him?

Author Bio

Finding your passion can be quite a long journey, as proved by Santino Reynolds. The Chicago-born young adult traveled over fifteen states, living in many of them. From behind a desk to behind enemy lines, Santino’s vibrant list of accolades includes: becoming the Musclemania middle-weight bodybuilding champion, becoming an Iraq war veteran, learning sign language and so much more. But none of those titles filled Santino with the passion he has for story-telling. Santino first began writing short horror stories at the age of eight. However, his first full length novel was a romance inspired by a close relative “coming out” to him. As he continued to write, romance became more of a background and his love for horror took center stage. Even though the genres may change, Santino Reynolds never will. Remnants, hints and allusions to his earlier works are always evident in his latest books. Try to find the House Of Cards reference in Deliver Us. Santino now resides in Arizona and continues to write horror novels. His lifelong dream is a collaboration with the living legend George A. Romero.

Guest Post for Deliver Us Book Tour

I’m hosting a guest post written by author Santino Reynolds today, the blogger behind As Write As Reyn. Santino Reynolds’ debut novel, Deliver Us, is coming in October 2012 from Senzuri Books.

Literature, I Unfriend You

Want to write a novel someday? No? Perfect. This is actually for you readers out there. If you ever plan on writing in the future, then sit down and shut up. This isn’t about me and this isn’t about you writers. It’s about the swill that we have been peddling to poor, undeserving readers that for some strange reason continue to trudge along through it.

Literature, the last bastion of the intellectual masses, has succumbed to the same disease as American television. Reading books today has become the equivalent of a working human brain (with electrical impulses and such) being doused with water. Don’t believe me? I tried to get away from television because it was killing me to have to watch it. And what happened…?

Paris Hilton, Snooki and the Kardashians all have books now. And don’t give me that malarkey that it’s not that bad. Sure they all flaunted their hoo-ha’s on television to our amusement and they all have their own failed line of colognes and contraceptives. But I’m telling you, books are no better than television right now. Want more proof? Joe Paterno has a biography coming out soon. Yes, the coach accused of encroaching the under-aged line of scrimmage has a new novel. I can only imagine the 400 plus pages of KY fueled children’s nightmares. Paterno would run drills with the boys all day, then they would begin practice.

I’m not done yet. Martin Dugard co-authored a book with, hold your applause, Bill O’Reilly. Co-authored? I’ve seen the way O’Reilly treats the guests on his show. So I’m guessing Dugard co-authored the book the same way Lois is a co-star in the Superman movies. Bill O’Reilly revisiting politics of the civil war times would be like a 20th century magician visiting the 1800s. Back then, no one will recognize their tired old tricks and they’ll both hope to come back with a little black souvenir. Draw your own conclusions folks, but I meant a top hat. Michael Vick has a book as well. It’s titled Finally Free. He co-authored the book with Lindsay Lohan, Martha Stewart, Lil’ Kim, Tim Allen, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, Keifer Sutherland, Mike Tyson and a few others. This project was years in the making and Vick actually wanted OJ Simpson on the ground floor, but…

One last book, 50 Shades of Grey by E. L. James. It’s the story of an attractive, wealthy and controlling man that uses his charm and finances to introduce an innocent woman to a world of fancy cars, expensive dinner parties, and sleazy sexual misconduct. Wait, haven’t we heard that story in the news before, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and most definitely Mitt Romney? But I’m not going to knock E. L. James or her book 50 Shades of Grey. I think you and husbands all over thank you for the week of quiet reading and exploratory sex that follows.

Coming out soon is a novel simply entitled Deliver Us. I’m afraid the only thing that author is capable of delivering us from is…wait. This is my novel. Keep your eyes peeled for Deliver Us, written by me, this October. Until then, stay friendly with literature.

Book Review and Giveaway for Intimate Strangers by Anne M. Strick

Title: Intimate Strangers
Author: Anne M. Strick
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Romance
Publisher: Createspace
Published on: January 5th 2011
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon (Paperback) | Amazon (Kindle) | B&N

This wonderful book is the first to focus on one aspect of man’s inhumanity to child that has crossed my path many times: that confusing world of adoptions. Anne M. Strick artfully sets up parallel adoption scenarios that immerse the readers in the very heart of the characters – birth parents, adoptive parents, and most importantly, the hearts of children themselves. With this book, she gives us the impetus to legally, practically and morally move to fulfill for our children the promise of the Pledge of Allegiance – “With Liberty and Justice for All!” Heart-catching, suspense, hot tears and hot sex.

Book Review

Intimate Strangers may be a contemporary romance in the strict sense of the word, it’s unlike any contemporary romance novel I’ve ever read. The main focus of the book is adoption, and how society sometimes rules in favor of biological parents as opposed to in favor of the small, helpless child who is unable to defend himself. We meet with main characters Georgie and Dru, who stand right in the middle of the world of adoptions, and try to help people out wherever they can. There are many joys, but equally as many woes, in this world. People desperate for a child who have to wait for years to get one, although the list of children up for adoption is large enough to accomodate all requests. People who’ve managed to adopt a child, only to get sued by the biological parents later on. Biological parents who, more often than not, didn’t care for the child the first years of their life.

Georgie, one of the main characters, knows first-hand how hard it is to give a child up for adoptions, but she also understands why people do it. She’s made it her personal quest to help adoption parents and children, every single hour of the day. Her passion for this kind of job is obvious, and it made me like her instantly. She’s driven and emotional, although she tries to keep her emotions at bay. She’d led a rough life so far, which also increases my respect for her.

Dru is equally ambitious to help her clients, although she seemed at first, less emotionally involved. The better we get to know the character though, the more it becomes obvious that this detachment is Dru’s self-defense from the harsh, cruel world outside. She didn’t have a happy childhood, far from it, and she’s still struggling to cope with that ever since.

The plot was great, especially how it all came together in the end. There were some loose pieces in the beginning that had me wondering, but by the end, all was resolved and neatly tied together. This is an intelligent book, rather than just focusing on the romance, it focuses on the underlying issues at hands, and more importantly, on how it’s possible in today’s society that adopted children, growing up in loving, caring homes, still get assigned to biological parents who haven’t cared for them ever since they were born. This really made me think. It’s not because adoptive parents and their children don’t have a biological bond, that they don’t have a bond made of love, commitment and trust. To break that bond would be desastrous for the child. I can’t believe, in today’s society, that judges still rule in favor of biology as opposed to love.

If you’re like me, and you enjoy books that have romance, but don’t focus on the romance entirely, that are cleverly written, and show you unique, enjoyable main characters, you should give Intimate Strangers a try.

Guest Blog Post from author January Bain

I’m hosting January Bain on my blog today. January is the author of a paranormal series with two books out: Forever Man and Forever Woman. She’s now touring Forever Woman and dropping by my blog with a guest post about writing Forever Woman.

Guest Post: Writing Forever Woman

Writing Forever Woman was the kind of experience I can only wish all humans (and especially writers, of course!) could experience at some special time of their live. I found my full writing voice on this magical journey, discovered the richness of an alternate world, and, I won’t hesitant to say, began to envy vampires! What’s not to like? You can to stay young and beautiful forever is you get to be made young; you can acquire great wealth with the full gift of time, you can recover easily from wounds that would smite down a human, and maybe best of all, you get to live with the love of your life forever—that is if you can find them!

That has been Christopher St. John’s, the antagonist’s problem in the novel, as he has lost his mate to betrayal and looks to find another. Well, you can’t just take another man’s love! But he tries and all hell breaks loose. Aidan Hightower, our hero, has his hands full trying to save his love, Winter Kennedy from herself as she has invited Christopher, the head of the Pharaoh Clan to make her a vampire. She has a good reason, but she changes her mind, a woman’s prerogative which the alpha vampire does not take kindly to at all!!!

One of the sparks behind Forever Woman was the revelation to me that if you could give the gift of eternal life to someone, why not chose someone worthy of the gift?! And so the characters that pepper my books are special people, saved for good reason. Winter is a gifted medical nurse with a talent for research and that makes her special to the Pharaoh Clan. Other members of the Clan have their historical gifts too and you will need to read, Forever Woman, to find out what they are!

Excerpt from Forever Woman

The murmur of voices was silenced in an instant by the ancient magistrate’s unearthly cold stare as he stood with full authority, blacked-hooded and paper-white, and read from the book of punishments, his voice heralding the full power of the Condita, the Vampire Establishment.

“It is our character and our will that makes and mars our lives. Your defense that you were not aware of the edict against Human feeding falters as it does not justify the excessive crime of random acts of terror against humans. Modern Vampire lore is clear on this point, as it is written.”

And with a short pause for emphasis, continued his diatribe in the echoing tone of an inhuman mountain of stone. The more astute members of his audience felt an infinitesimal flicker of his savoring the silence before his final pronouncement began.

“Therefore, it is the verdict of this court that the vampyre, Katrianna Ivanski, in absentia, for her crimes against the Condita, be chained for no less than twenty four hours to the punishment polus in the central courtyard of the templum. May the Confuto have mercy on your undead soul.”

Forever Woman

Title: Forever Woman
Author: January Bain
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Champagne Books
Publication Date: October 1st 2012

What if you had an incurable disease? Maybe you too would think that becoming a vampire was your only choice. What wannabe vampire Winter Kennedy didn’t count on was falling in love with a human after making contact with an ancient vampire of the Pharaoh Clan.The vampire, Christopher St. John, won’t accept that she has changed her mind and whisks her away to his Alaskan mountain top home. Will her true love, Aiden Hightower, be able to rescue her from her final fate?

Author Bio

January Bain, Storyteller, hails from Ashern, Manitoba, Canada. Married to the love of her life, her husband Don, she has combined her love of romance with her interest in vampires to create the FOREVER SERIES of books. She teaches high school Computer and Business courses during the day and writes in every spare moment she possibly can.

If she could be a super character, she has said it would be “super-teach” endowed with the gift of healing like the heroine in her first novel, Forever Man, to help heal broken spirits. She hopes her characters will touch your heart. She loves to be approached about the journey of writing and can be reached at her website.
