In the SPOTLIGHT: Author Blakely Bennett

Author’s Name:  Blakely Bennett

Upcoming release: Stuck In-Between

                As an Author, I appreciate the time, blood, sweat and tears that it takes to put out a book.  In some cases, the work doesn’t reflect the best of who we are as the Author.  So you fine tune, rewrite and all that.  When you take a moment to read another’s work, you want feeling of inspiration that makes you say, “I want to do that.”  You hate to read a work and say, “I could’ve done that.” As I read through the pages of Blakely Bennett’s work, I felt the former not the latter.  I truly enjoy well-written, eloquent works that speak to a person in the first few pages of the story.  It helps that her book covers make you pause and take another look.  Let’s delve into the woman behind the pages.

                A little more about Blakely:

If you don’t know what to expect from the Author, well she sums it up with this “expect me to continue to write unique stories that keep you on the edge of your seat. More specifically, I hope to have Stuck In-Between out by the end of January/beginning of February, which is the first novel in the Bound by Your Love Series. Then my husband and I will work on the sequel to The Demarcation of Jack.” (How great is it that she has a spouse that writes as well? He has to understand the insanity of an Author’s schedule)

What Author would you most like to work with?

“It would be hard to choose but I would probably go with Audrey Niffenegger because of her brilliant work on The Time Traveler’s Wife. I would learn so much about creating a complex and intriguing story.”

Any self-written scene that pulled at your heart strings?

“OMG, many! Especially in the My Body Trilogy.”

Of your works, is there one that is close to your heart?

The novel I am currently writing, Stuck In-Between, which is an erotic romance. I’m in love with the characters and I’m still dying to know how it will all resolve.

Advice to a Newcomer/New Author from the Author

“Be professional! Make or buy professional or current book covers to be competitive in your genre. Always use Editors and several proof readers. Never react to bad reviews online. You must have a thick skin to be an Author. You will never please everyone.”

 To be released in February 10, 2014

Blurb for the book:

{Jacqs is a twenty-eight year old woman caught up in an on again, off again relationship with Bond, who is her best friend and the one who causes her the most heartache. She succumbs, yet again, to his powerful charisma, but vows not make it into more than it is, a great night of sex. 

Bond, too sexy for his own good, wants Jacqs for himself as he “dates” his way through the female population of South Florida. He selfishly doesn’t see the conflict of interest.

Red, Bond’s best friend, has watched Bond take Jacqs for granted for way too long and soon stakes his own claim on her. 

Will Red and Jacqs budding relationship pull apart their tight-knit group of friends and will Jacqs survive being Stuck In Between.}

Looks like it will be a great read!!
