Promo for Beautiful Dreams by Alicia Rae

Cover ~ Beautiful Dreams

Event Organized by:  Literati Author Services, Inc.

“My four-wheelers and car were finally delivered?” I asked, unable to contain the enthusiasm in my voice.
“Yep.” He smiled. “And I’m not sure how much longer I can hold off Jason and Damon, so you better get up.” He chuckled.
I bent forward and gave him a smacking kiss on his lips, and then I turned to jump off the bed. At my dresser, I threw on the first clean shirt and pair of jeans that I found in my drawers while feeling extremely thankful that I’d stopped drinking last night. Otherwise, I would have a massive hangover. I tied up my hair in a sloppy bun as I spun around to face Kyle.
“Ready.” I grinned.
Kyle shook his head from side to side in amazement. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen you move so fast.”
I picked up a throw pillow from the floor in front of the bed and chucked it at him. “Ass!” I said jokingly.
His eyebrows perked in a mixture of shock and amusement. “Did you just call me an ass?” he asked in bewilderment.
I nodded, feeling lively this morning. “Yep.” I smirked before spinning on my heels to face the door, and then I looked at him over my shoulder. “And there ain’t nothing you can do about it.” I winked and took a step toward the door.
Kyle leaped off the bed in the blink of an eye. He caught me just as my hand reached to open the door handle. I squealed loudly as he threw me over his shoulder, spun around, and strode back toward the bed. He lightly tossed me onto the mattress. I bounced softly, and he crawled on top, prowling over me with sexy dark eyes heated with challenge. My body hummed with desire for him.
“Oh, beautiful girl,” he chided, making a hoarse low tsking sound from his throat. “You know how much I love a good challenge.”
I rocked my hips up into him, and he emitted a deep moan from his throat as he grabbed my waist. Seconds later, a loud bang sounded on our door.
“Let’s go, Lily!” Jason yelled. “You can do that shit after we ride!” he teased, laughing.
“Damn,” I huffed. I knew we couldn’t make love with company close by anyway, but the thought was temping. Having family stay in our home definitely had its cons.
Kyle chuckled while bending forward to kiss me. “Until later.” He grinned.

Top Ten Pieces of Advice for Aspiring Authors
  1. Take a chance, and follow your dreams.
  2. The hardest part is to start. Grab a notebook or laptop and start an outline or jot down storyline ideas.
  3. Open up your mind and let your characters speak to you.
  4. Join a writers group for support.
  5. Let a close friend read your work. Words of affirmation can work wonders.
  6. When you feel like you’ve reached a dead-end, take a break and come back to it when you are ready with a clear mind.
  7. When you feel like quitting, push through your fears and hesitations.
  8. Block out all the negative and focus on the positive parts of writing.
  9. Read your work again and again until you feel it’s perfect.
  10. Research all of your resources and find out what works best for you. Who you work with is very important.
  11. When you finally make it to the end of the road, do a happy dance

Top Five Things I Love About my Characters…
  1. Their immediate attraction to one another because it’s my favorite type of books to read. When I started The Beautiful Series, Kyle and Lily naturally came to me that way.
  2. Kyle and Lily’s balance of chemistry and friendship. As in any relationship, I think it’s essential to have both. During proof reading, I always find myself blushing one minute and laughing out loud at their playfulness the next. My husband just gives me this funny look. It’s great.
  3. Kyle and Lily’s support for each other. I hope to inspire others that no matter how rough life is at times, you can lean on your partner in a time of need. Relationships are a give and take.
  4. The emotional growth between Kyle and Lily has greater depth than I originally planned for this novel. It’s a love story, yet so much more. I can’t wait to write the rest of their journey.
  5. Family dynamics are such a huge role in our lives, and I look forward to expanding on Kyle and Lily’s families in the future.  ;)
