What makes a book exciting?




Winter is here. You’re all hunkered down. Your mind is in hibernation; hasn’t had an original thought since Noah built that speed boat ages ago, and put all of civilization in the cargo area. You’re already over-dosing on ball games, celebrity glut, and car ads. The TV remote has become an extra appendage to your hand. Even the games are beginning to blur; bounce the ball, kick the ball, throw the ball, steal the ball, but play inside the boundaries. Is that dull or what?

You know what makes a car race so exciting? It’s not the winner’s flag. Come on, a flag waving? No; it’s all the car crashes during the race. And no, it’s not the final scoreboard at the Super Bowl that gets you excited. It’s all that stomping and kicking that goes on during the game. But then again they play inside those boring boundary lines. Pristine white lines. Ahhh the innocence of football. Dull, huh?
 
Each of us has a sense of the “norm,” or normal, middle of the road. But that isn’t what makes things exciting or interesting, especially books. Books can take us places if the story characters step, or play outside the boundary lines. That intrigues us, whets our curiosity for the different. Think about it. Have you ever recommended a “mild” war, romance, or sci-fiction book to a friend? I haven’t either. When something goes beyond the mundane our attention is hooked. Books of that nature usually make it to your top-shelf of favorite reads.

Well…characters in my erotic escapades “play” also, and most play and “crash” outside the boundaries. Actually some of my characters play in the dirt and by the end of the book they’ve got more smudges on them than any MVP ever, but they’ve got bigger smiles on their faces. That’s because they unleash their MVP (Most Vital Passions). And they get a bit reckless at times. They’re playing with emotions and body parts, the hottest game on the planet!


There’s more naughty "play" in THRILL DRIVEN than at the stadium or on the one-eyed TV screen. Kick your reading up a notch to classy, sassy, and smart fun.


Let the NIGHT ROGUE excite you for the winter holidays. NIGHT ROGUE has a holiday setting complete with snow, and hot sizzling passions that ignite the night. I think you’ll enjoy the erotic escapade.


You’ll have to agree that some of the most entertaining moments you ever had as a kid were when you played in the dirt; stomped in the mud. Yeah, I know, your mom jerked a knot in you afterwards, but I’ll let you work that out with her.

So toss the remote, excite your mind with some entertaining books.

Winter’s here; chill out with a Candi Silk hot read. Enjoy playing in the dirt, again! I promise not to tell your mother.
