Thank you for inviting me here today!

I’m not gonna lie, when SidLove asked if I was interested in a GP on his site, I gave an automatic YES – OF COURSE – DUH!!!! But I had no idea what I was being asked to do. Once I figured it out, I got immediately nervous and now I’ve sat here for a good hour trying to come up with something to say.

Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. Someone suggested I write something relevant to my new release, Double Full. And yes, that’s very important but no, I can’t ever do anything easy! Duh! So I decided against that.

The Current Between UsI know! Instead, I reached deeper into The Current Between Us, starting almost from the beginning. It’s in my dedication. Instead of funny humor, or current events, I’m taking this to unexplainable pain – which for some reason makes perfect sense in my mind.

Five years ago I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to meet Suzette Pylant. She works for Madd in the Dallas office – Mothers Against Drunk Driving. She’s a victim’s advocate. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. For the first time in my life Madd wasn’t a political force, but a support group like none other.  I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her. Texas Pride and The Current Between Us wouldn’t have hit Number 1 on the Amazon best sellers list, Kindle’s name wouldn’t be in print and I never would have healed without her help.

Portions of the sales of all my books will be donated to MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) in both Kindle and Suzette’s name. I can’t thank Suzette and her team enough for stepping into my world. It takes a special person to come stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever.

I could go on and on about both of them, but I won’t.  I am so interested in what you think about this, and Double Full. The best part of writing is talking to the people like yourself who love to read. Message me at kindle@kindlealexander.com and let me know what you think!

On to business! Double Full is scheduled for release October 8, 2013. If you decide to pick it up, please let me know what you think!

Synopsis

Double FullUp and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.

Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?
