#WriteTip - Secondary Characters Need Stories, Too by @JSubject, spotlighting her @DecadentPub #AudioBook and $10 #Giveaway

My Decadent Publishing cohort and newsletter coordinator extraordinaire Jessica Subject has a brand new audiobook release. Before she presents audio sample for Beneath the Starry Sky, I asked her to give me yet another writing tip. To be fair, the word count limit on the 1Night Stand series does make this one rather difficult.

Secondary Characters Need Stories, Too!

by Jessica Subject

Thank you so much to Tara for inviting me back!

My writing tip for today is inspired by my recent audio book release. Beneath the Starry Sky was the second 1Night Stand story I wrote for the line at Decadent Publishing, and was inspired by the first one. Tamara, the heroine of BTSS was a secondary character in Celestial Seduction, Carrie’s best friend. She told Carrie of her experience with the 1Night Stand dating service. Yikes! She’s had her date already, but I hadn’t wrote it. So, I sat down to tell her story. It may have been out of order, but I wrote it.

So, if you’re ever stuck for ideas, or if a certain secondary character has tied up your muse because they want their story written, go ahead and do it.

If you get a chance, I hope you enjoy Tamara’s story in Beneath the Starry Sky!

Beneath the Starry Sky ~ An Audio Book!

A 1Night Stand story

By Jessica E. Subject

Narrated by Audrey Lusk

Left at the altar with bald patches on her head and her self-confidence stripped away, Tamara Johnson must pick up the pieces of her life and face her Alopecia Areata, the autoimmune disease causing her hair to fall out. She is convinced no man will date a bald woman and arranges a one-night stand through Madame Evangeline’s popular service, 1Night Stand. With her new wig held firmly in place, Tamara arrives at the Castillo Hotel in Las Vegas for a night of passion and pleasure. Anything more than one night would mean exposing her bald head, and she will never do that to any man again.

Running into the Castillo Hotel, away from the paparazzi constantly at his heels, Josh Summers wants to spend his next few days locked away from the flashing lights and screaming fans. When he finds an incredibly sexy woman lying on his hotel room bed in nothing but lingerie, he thinks management has made a mistake. Leaving her behind, he heads for the lobby to get the situation rectified. But an unexpected text from Madame Evangeline sends him back to his room. Though unsure whether the woman on the bed is really his perfect match or just another fan believing him to be like his character on television, he knows he must find out, even if it means he must risk telling her his own secrets. If Tamara can handle his imperfections, she just might be his ideal woman.
