Bellah Denoon has had a crush on her boss, Dalton McCoy, for a while, but she’s never acted upon her feelings. They have a perfect working relationship, and she’s hesitant to do anything to disturb it. Until one night she’s attacked in the parking lot, and Dalton comes to her rescue.
Shaken, Bellah goes home with Dalton, not wanting to be alone. Lust temporarily breaks down the barriers between them but he’s her boss. What happens if he doesn’t feel the same? Then again, what if he does?
How Would I Describe "Suddenly"?
For some, this story may sound familiar…and that’s because it was previously in the Executive Assistant Anthology from Evernight. One of the authors in the anthology asked for their rights back to the story, which made Evernight obligated to reverse all the rights to all the authors. I asked the editor what I could do, and I was given the option of expanding and rewriting the story. So Suddenly grew about 3000 words!
Q) What was the hardest or easiest scene to write?
I think the scenes after Bellah was attacked. The romance between her and her boss had to be realistic, but after almost being raped a woman has ZERO interest in sex. So, I had to make sure to balance the horror with her falling in love.
Q) Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
I’ve always been fascinated with this question. For me, ideas come and go all the time, but only the few really stick in my head. I have been published for ten years now, and writing longer than that, that I’m able to tell what plot bunnies will stick around and what’ll disappear. Perhaps the bigger question is how to finish the story…how does a writer come up with different scenarios to make each book unique. And if I ever come up with a logical explanation of how, I’ll make sure to share it!
Q) Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?
This is actually pretty funny, because I don’t like writing series…but I always seem to end up writing them! As a reader, I find series okay if there are only about three or four in a row. But anything more and it gets tedious for me to keep up with the books. There are few exceptions, of course, but for the most part four is my limit. As for a writer, it gets hard to keep all the timelines straight.
Q) What are your upcoming projects?
My writing schedule is now for 2020 publications. I have three definitely planned books on my list: a paranormal, a fantasy, and Book 3 in my World of Danger series. You can keep up with everything I’m planning here: https://bethdcarter.blogspot.com/p/wips.html
Bio & Social Media Links:
I like writing about the very ordinary girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so my heroines will probably never be lawyers, doctors or corporate highrollers. I try to write characters who aren't cookie cutters and push myself to write complicated situations that I have no idea how to resolve, forcing me to think outside the box. I love writing characters who are real, complex and full of flaws, heroes and heroines who find redemption through love. I love to hear from readers so I’ve made it really easy to find me on the web:
