Featured Author: Laci Paige Talks Truckin'


Available May 8, 2012
Hello! Before I start rambling on, I want to thank Leslie for having me as a guest today! Thank you, Leslie!!!

May 8th my debut erotic-romantic novella, Let’s Keep On Truckin’ will be released. I’m very excited for everyone to meet Lily, Alex and Ryder.

What prompted me to write this story? Last year I won an eBook novella from a contest Decadent Publishing held, and I won. I was gifted an erotic tale. After reading it, I decided that, “Hey, I can write something like this.” Well, the story I wrote wasn’t exactly “like this”, but it is a story for adults. It was a fun story to write, and it wasn’t as simple as it seems. I submitted my story to Decadent and it was rejected the first time, but it was accepted after the second try, and then I still had to edit, edit, and edit some more.

How did I come up with the story? Well, my family likes to travel – a lot. We drive up and down East Coast USA to visit friends and family. On one particular day there were a lot of semi-trucks on the highway. My muse got to wondering if anyone ever met or hooked up with a trucker at a rest stop. It took a day to think it through, and a few more days to write up the first draft.

What’s really funny now? I can’t be on the highway without smiling at the big trucks. Oh, and forget about it when I see a truck with the name Ryder on it, or any variation of it, I really smile.  They must think I am a really happy traveler. Little do they know.

I’ve written a few more novellas which I would like to edit, edit and edit a little more on my own before I submit them to my publisher. Weird thing about those; I didn’t intend to do it on purpose, but the other stories revolve around transportation of some sort (limo, sailboat, plane). Hmm…Laci’s Transportation Series?

Readers, I really hope if you read my novella, and you like it, that you’ll send me some review love! Look for it on sale at amazon.com and decadentpublishing.com.

Thanks again, Leslie, for having me!

Let's Keep on Truckin'
by Laci Paige
BLURB: Lily loves traveling on her job since no one can do it better than her. Being out on the open road gives her plenty of time to reflect and avoid unwanted attention, but somehow it always finds her....

When she comes across Ryder, first at a grocery store, then at a rest stop, sexual desire sparks and she knew she had to have him. If only her ex hadn't shown up, igniting a fantasy she never thought possible.

Seeing Alex in a whole new light, Lily realizes second chances are in order, but will she have to choose between the two men? Or could she be happy with both?

EXCERPT: In the candy aisle, I felt someone looking at me. Turning my head, I gazed past a man standing near me. A very nice looking man, but I ignored him, or at least I tried to. His green eyes locked on mine. Warmth and tingles spread throughout my body causing my knees to go weak. The man’s face held sharp features, and his sultry lips rewarded me with a demure smile. I would’ve loved to feel them on mine. He stepped closer to me. My heart rate spiked. Nodding to the shelf in front of us, he focused in on something and reached for it. He stopped mid-reach, and our gazes met again. His arm lowered. I knew I couldn’t look away, and I had a feeling he couldn’t either. I bit my bottom lip, and I saw him take notice. He leaned in close to me, mouth parted to speak.

“Excuse me,” a voice requested. We stepped away from each other so the woman behind us could retrieve candy from the shelf. She sure took her time. Separated by the woman, I kept glancing over at the man. He, too, continued to gaze my way. There was something about him; he made something stir inside me.
