Don’t tell anyone, but I stole Aidee’s page for the day! I promise I’ll give it back soon. Swear… I stole it for something that I hope you’ll find fun. I stole it to tell you about my brand new story, releasing today, and for a giveaway!!
My short story, The Doctor’s Valentine, is published by Solstice Publishing. It’s in their Valentine Anthology called Take Back The Night, which features five authors with tales never before told. My story is more of a contemporary romance than an erotica, but you might find one or two of those in this anthology. The Doctor’s Valentine is a sweet story about what happens when someone decides to put one dream on hold for another. This is a story about what happens when those we love think they know what’s best for us and force us to follow our dreams.
When I was growing up I had a dream that I wanted to be a writer. I wrote little stories everywhere. Some were on napkins, and some were written in my Math textbooks (don’t tell the schoolboard!). By the time I was in high school I carried around a notebook to every one of my classes. It contained poems, stories, and even fanfiction (Gundam Wing was my favorite). I put my dream of becoming a writer on hold to join the military though. While I was in the Navy my dreams never stopped, they were just on hold. Life continues on though. Our dreams change and grow with every passing moment. Dreams are vastly important to our survival. They keep us going when we might otherwise give up or are distraught from a temporary failure. I tend to put themes within my story of what happens when life gets in your way and changes your path or forces you to put your dreams on hold. That’s also the premise behind my short story.
In The Doctor’s Valentine, Sean Gibson’s lifelong dream has been to become an Oncologist. He’s willing to give that up to marry the love of his life though. That same love of his life that’s determined she knows what’s best for him. When he arrives home with a sapphire ring he finds Nicky gone and his heart crushed. With nothing left to lose, he changes his life and accepts a coveted Oncology Residency. If he can’t have one dream, he might as well have the other. Fate is a fickle thing though…
Fate decides to intervene in the form a patient named Thomas. Sean’s life won’t ever be the same.
If time, money, and space didn’t matter; what dream would you pursue and why?
Thank you for joining me! Also, thank you to Aidee for letting me steal her page for a day! I hope you guys enjoy yourselves and I can’t wait to see what you guys answer! Feel free to hit me up on Facebook and let me know what you think of my story!
