Today I want to Welcome Author Jeeper Wade on the blog. Hi Jeeper *waves* I am so happy to have you hear today. So take it away Cowboy...
Sylas Hanson, an accomplished executive chef, was growing tired of his life. He was frustrated with his stagnant career, as well as his reputation for being a ladies man. After yet another rough dinner shift and a meaningless one night stand, Sylas decided he needed a change. Taking charge like always, Sylas made a few phone calls. Within weeks he will start a new job, in a new city. He was confident that his career would explode. He wasn't so sure about his love life, until he walked into La Joie and saw Veronica for the first time. She was everything he wanted and more, or was she?
Would she look past his attitude long enough to see the real Sylas? Would she approve of his relationship ideals, even if it involves spanking? If Veronica agreed, Sylas knew he would care for her and cherish her like no other man before.
So that is a brief blurb about my book Refired. The idea to write a book was born on Twitter. I have met many authors and readers this past year. I have written in the past as a way to escape from reality. So the idea of putting a story on paper was not a foreign concept to me. It was through their encouragement that I decided to move forward with the idea I had.
I pulled the inspiration for Sylas and Refired from bits and pieces of my own life. I have worked in the restaurant industry in various capacities for the last 20 years. The profession is a tough one, long hours, stress; it all leads to a lack of free time. It is a struggle for many people behind the scenes in a restaurant to find long lasting love. Many have (including me) but it can be tense at times working holidays, etc. The partner of a restaurant employee needs to be understanding. That is where the frustrations Sylas felt in his love life were born. He has the great career as a successful chef, but now he wanted love. Sylas desired a love that would last forever with a partner that understood him, his career and his beliefs. That can be a very hard thing to find in the restaurant business.
I truly hope everyone enjoys Sylas’s journey as much as I did writing it.
