#EllieKeys (Cover Reveal) An Author's Tale by Ellie Keys

AAT Banner Final Title: An Author's Tale
  Author: Ellie Keys Publisher: Booktrope Publication 
Date: January 2016
  GoodReads: synopsis      
 As an author, I enjoy making my own way in life--answering to no one, but myself. I do enjoy meeting fans and attending book events. I was so excited to be invited to sign in New York City with several of my fellow authors. My life was going so well until I made one mistake. His name was Daniel White. Daniel is the cover model extraordinaire. Meeting Daniel changed my whole life. I’m not sure quite what to make of it. He’s stubborn, bossy, and won’t leave me to my own space.
What should I do with him?
If I was writing my own story, I’d have written my character a better ending. This has to get better . . . doesn’t it?

  excerpt        OH! I remembered then. I was on my way to my room. In my inebriated state, I'd mixed up the numbers. I had ended up at his door trying desperately to get my key to work. I recalled hearing some kind of grumbling from the other side of the door, but hadn't really been coherent enough to put two and two together.
I'd fallen through the door when he snatched it open. I was on the floor for a few moments giggling and I heard him curse. It had sounded like he’d said something about eager fans or desperate women. Either way, I'd laughed and told him that he was an asshole for jumping to conclusions because I wasn't what he thought I was. I was just too drunk to realize that I was trying to get into the wrong room.
I’d tried to lift myself up and almost fell. I'd tugged on something, but didn't know what. I didn't know until I was on my knees in the next moment facing his slightly erect rod, which was beautiful and staring me in my face. The one-eyed monster had my full attention.
"Okay, beautiful, you got to see it. Now let go of my pants," I’d heard him say.
My eyes never budged. I was fixated. Before I realized it, I had the head of him in between my lips. Once I had it, I wasn't letting go. I didn't until he'd grabbed my bun and tugged. He lifted all of my size- fourteen, five-foot-four, one-hundred-seventy-plus ass up off the floor and hand me spread eagle in the air perched just above his completely erect pelvis a moment later.
"You want this?" was his question.
I was so flabbergasted and turned on by how easily he lifted me that my response was automatic, "Yes. God, yes!"
He quickly slid the only thing hindering his entry to the side and tested my willingness with his fingers. His probing had my head falling back. My panties had to have been soaked through because I had been more than ready. He was deep within me after just a few slight strokes. I lost count over the course of the night just how many times I fell into the lap of ecstasy. I just recalled being in a constant state of bliss. I remembered feeling exhausted and drifting off to sleep with the cheesiest grin. His hand in my dampened honey blonde tresses helped lull me to sleep.
I know I woke up in the middle of the night and felt really hot. I'd rocked back and felt him behind me. I was in that in-between state where you can't tell dream from reality. So, I just went with it. I woke him enough to have my wicked way with him.
"Oh my ... I can't believe I did this," I groaned into the pillow.
"Yeah, you did and quite well I might add. I'll admit that I've never been with a ... a, um, African American girl and definitely not a plus size one but damn ... " he said as he moved around behind me.
I inwardly groaned again then was pissed and irritated with myself. I was most definitely the dumbest woman to walk the face of the earth. Ever so slowly, I sat up and began to stand my naked body on my shaky legs.
"Whoa there, ba ... ," he began, but I cut him off.
"Do not finish that statement. I'm not your baby. As a matter of fact, if I remember correctly, when I fell into your room last night or this morning, whenever, you thought I was some 'desperate fan'. I wasn't then and I'm not now. I'm going to get my bearings and my damn clothes so I can leave. I need to get ready for the event today. Ugh, my head ... and my stomach. I'm going to use your bathroom first," I informed him as I moved very slowly toward my gown, which was in the direct path of the bathroom. Didn't I have on pants before? Oh yeah, I had them on under the gown.
"Wait. Did I say something wrong?"
I just ignored him and concentrated on getting to my garment then to the bathroom. I'd just made it to the gown when I heard the bed move.

Other pastimes are going to the movies, playing around on social media and she's addicted to word games: Scrabble, Text Twist, Wheel of Fortune.

This degree allows her acknowledge that she may be a little bit off because of all of the talk about hearing voices that don't allow her to sleep. The good thing about that is she is in good company. She was happy to learn that she wasn't alone when she talked to other authors.

Pink Ribbon Giveaway

Blog Hop - Breast Cancer

The Participants

Our Sponsor
Toni Madison is an extraordinary woman.  Thanks to her for this hop. (Click her name to check out her link)

The Reason I Show My Support
I'm so stoked to be part of this hop giveaway.  Every year, I look for something to do to help bring awareness to this month.  I'm all about multitasking.  I decided that I'd combine my giveaway with promotion for an upcoming anthology that I am privileged to be affiliated with as well as awareness for October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.
A woman that will forever be embedded in my memory, not because she is gone from this world, but because of the life that she's lived.  She was diagnosed with cancer during a time when she was supposed to be celebrating one of the greatest gifts a woman can have.  After years of trying to get pregnant, she was able to finally able to have a baby.  Concerned about the issues she was having with breast feeding, she went to the doctor.  The outcome was learning that she had cancer.  The first year of her newborn son's life was spent being too weak to hold him.  She couldn't breastfeed as she wanted to.  Imagine the pain she felt.  It's not something that I would wish on anyone.  The family rallied around her, going as far as shaving their heads, wearing the wigs or scarves when she did and keeping her encouraged.  I continue to share and support causes because of Jen.  She reminds me to keep going in the face of adversity.  I will continue to share her story as I watch her family from afar via Facebook.
You'll find a giveaway, the information for another cause that I am associated with and helpful information about the true reason for this month.  Thanks for stopping by the blog.  I hope it is helpful and inspiring.
