So, my book, The Love Genie: Barbary Coast comes out Friday, June 24th, and I thought I'd see what else was going on in the month of June.
Guess what? It's Aquarium Month.
Now, there's a reason I didn't know this. When my kids were little, I thought it would be fun to have an aquarium. I had fond memories of my two goldfish when I was young. They lived for years. What could be so hard?
So I bought a big aquarium, got the pump, plants, water testing kid, some very cool fish and food. All went well for about a week.
The algae and snails thrived. The fish? Not so much.
Especially because Tom-Tom, the cat, was fascinated by them.
(This is not an actual picture of Tom-Tom, but you get the idea.)
I gave up after a few months. Years later, I walked into the local pharmacy and at the checkout lane, they had these mini aquariums in a 6 or 8 inch cube, all set up with fish and everything. I couldn't resist and got one for my desk at the office. Those were fish of a different kind. They were hardy little buggers and I had them for several years.
When Scott Eugene Anderson inherits his aunt's motel in the foothills of the White Mountains, he decides to turn it into a motel for anonymous sexual fantasies and advertises himself as The Love Genie.
Meaghan Rowe, who doesn't wait for anything, has a sexual itch and she turns to The Love Genie to get it scratched. Chris Baxter has a treasure chest full of lovemaking expertise, but can't do commitment. The two are matched and separately choose The Barbary Coast fantasy aboard a pirate ship.
Given Chris's expertise and Meaghan's impatience, will this relationship walk the plank or will they sail off into the sunset?
The Love Genie -- sexual fantasies with a touch of magic.
The Love Genie: Barbary Coast will be available June 24th from Whispers Publishing.
