Best Laid Intentions by Talia Carmichael

When it all comes together
By: Talia Carmichael

Creating a new book is exciting and I love each part. From looking at that blank page then adding the first words to it. Then taking the journey with my characters through their story. I follow where they lead and they surprise me when they take twists and turns. With each word I get to walk along with the characters as they journey toward their happy ever after. And that is the goal—to be a part of their book.

As I write I feel this zing as the story works as it comes together. I know deep within that I've succeeded in what I set out to do. Create a story that brings it all together. I love that sensation and I can't wait to get into that spot in the book when I know it.  After I get the book as I want it, then comes the next parts – submitting, then the waiting. The waiting can…keep you on edge. Then when you hear yes or no at least it is something. If it is that wonderful yes, then comes the editing process.  I enjoy the journey of getting my books ready for publication.

It is interesting to experience all the various steps in the process. From editing, blurbs, cover art and all the in between bits. Finally, the end point of the process—the actual publication of the book. (grin). Once it registers I get mixed feelings of excitement and anxiety. Fellow writers have told me that this is an experience they also get when their book is coming out. You put a lot of work into the story and when it's time to release it to the world it can be wonderful and frightening all at once. But no matter I still love it.

I'm at that stage right now—the excitement of recently released book and butterflies in my stomach. My latest book Best Laid Intentions (Impressions #6) just came out. :) All the processes to get the book from that first blank page to being released were a journey that I have taken before. Yet each time I still get those feelings I mentioned and I know that no matter how many books I get published I will always have those sensations. And I enjoy each and every step. I’m looking forward to it and all hopefully having this feeling often. (grin). I love when it all comes together.

Blurb for Best Laid Intentions:
This is book six in the Impressions series, see the full series listing here

Taking a risk and going after what he wants leads a man to the most pleasurable of results…
Taylor Noble decides to take a chance on pursuing Savage. Savage makes him crave but Taylor knows that anything beyond the physical would be foolish. He has too much on his plate for a relationship. But he can have a good time… After all, there’s no way Savage would want more. And Taylor certainly doesn’t either… Yet, as he gets to know Savage, Taylor finds himself questioning his plans for fun with no strings.

From their very first meeting, Savage Griffin is drawn to Taylor. There’s something Savage cannot define that’s so different when he sees, thinks or talks to Taylor. Knowing Taylor is interested gives him the opportunity to explore more about this man who has captured his attention. Savage plans to take advantage of it. Each and every moment—sexual and platonic—brings him closer to Taylor, who captures all his senses. Now it’s just a matter of convincing Taylor that what they share goes way past the physical to the emotional. Yes, emotions are messy but Savage is ready, willing and able to get Taylor to change his best laid intentions and make some new plans.

Reader Advisory: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series.
