#MotownWriters September Author of the month @ETLizCrowe Book Excerpt of new release Lady Balls #michiganauthors #michiganwriters #michlit

About the Book

Thanks to a soccer-career-ending accident, Kayla Franklin has given up on everything she ever worked for or wanted from life. She’s been avoiding her family, living in a crappy apartment with her best friend, and slinging overpriced drinks ever since. When TV executive J.D. Baxter crashes into the bar and her life, she’s already determined that rock bottom is her destiny.

Retired NFL quarterback and semi-pro bachelor J.D. used his millions to found a unique sports station in Detroit—one run entirely by women. When he decides that retired player Makayla Franklin will make the perfect subject for a new documentary, he pays a visit to the dive bar where she works, only to have his world knocked way off its axis.

Kayla agrees to his documentary proposal and attempts not to fall for the playboy athlete who’s populated his TV station with plenty of women from his past. When he asks her to pose as his fiancée, things get hilarious, then interesting … and then smoking hot.

Read Excerpt (980 words):

 

The bar was swamped by five o’clock, which was no surprise. Kayla worked as fast as she could, slinging the beer and disgusting bar food with what she thought was a fair bit of rapidity and the proper amount of attitude. She was the opposite of in the mood, which really helped her cope with annoyances like her manager, Brad, who seemed to spend the better part of her every shift staring at her tits. 

But now, here she was, pausing with four huge pints of beer in one hand and a plate of disgusting, orange-cheese-like-substance-covered nachos in the other. Her. A former soccer superstar. The one who was going to take the women’s national team to … oh hell. It didn’t pay to dwell.

Nope, this was her shiny new reality, in her redneck Daisy Dukes and black halter top, customer eyeballs crawling all over her. When her face burned in its familiar self-pity-party pre-teary-ness, she set her jaw, plunked the beers down in front a group of random dudes, all the while leaning over just enough to provide a good view, then headed back to the bar, clearing tables on the way.

And then … it happened. 

Or rather he happened.

Some douchebag with a smart phone stuck to his ear rounded a blind corner and plowed straight into her, sending the contents of all those not-quite-empty glasses of random booze all down the front of her halter top. He’d hit her weak side, the one that had ruined her future as a soccer super star. She sensed herself falling, watched it from a distance in horrifying slow motion. She knew she was about to break the damn glassware too, because landing on her bad knee always made her crumple like a Victorian hysteric.

Resigned, drippy, and clutching the glasses for dear life, she heard the razzing of a group of assholes all the while preparing to hit the deck. Until a strong hand gripped her upper arm, keeping her upright.

“Hey, sorry, whoa…” A gravelly voice hit her ear, sending an inappropriate shockwave to her brain.

She stepped forward with her other foot, which forced her to lunge into him while still hanging onto the empties.

He smelled like sun and outdoors with a hint of soapy cologne. Why she even noticed this, she had no idea. But damn. He smelled really great. She heard his rumbly laugh as she leaned a second too long to be considered polite.

“Yo, Baxter!” She heard some other male voice nearby. “Nice catch. Reel her in and bring her over here.”

The man, whose warm hand still gripped her elbow, raised one eyebrow at her. She blinked, acknowledging that he was, in a word, a perfect specimen. Tall, broad-shouldered and slim, with a model-worthy face boasting a trace of stubble. And, of course, he was wearing a damn suit. Her fantasy weakness—men in suits. This felt a tad contrived, even to her own overheated brain. But she decided to go with it, at least for now.

She’d gone so long without a man’s direct attention she sometimes thought she might declare herself re-virginized. Or maybe that would be re-virgined. Whatever it was, she was feeling it now, with Mr. Man’s deep blue eyes boring into her like a couple of laser beams.

She pulled her arm away and tried to resume a semblance of dignity, even as she got a whiff of the sour beer soaking her halter top. As if reading her mind, Sexy Hero Man’s gaze dropped to her exposed stomach, then lower. She sucked in her gut, then stopped, furious with herself for even thinking she had to do such a thing. 

Yeah. Okay. Fuck this guy.

“Excuse me,” she said, making her way past him and brushing his suit-coated shoulder in the process. The shock of the contact almost sent her tumbling once again. Which only served to ramp up her anger at herself, and at him … at his stupid, sexy, awesome perfection. And her own wimpy, girly reaction to him.

“Wait,” he said.

She turned, still clutching the glassware to her chest like a shield, nearly deafened from the sound of her heartbeat pounding in her ears.

“I’m sorry. Can I … make it up to you?” He stuck his hands into his trouser pockets, his expression no longer predatory, more like embarrassed little kid.

“Stop it,” she said, her voice croaky. She cleared her throat and started backing away from him.

“Stop what?” He advanced toward her, keeping about half a foot of air between them. “I mean, I’m not … shit.” He ran a hand around the back of his neck, his nervousness making her want to giggle. What man who dared to walk on this earth looking like that had any reason to be nervous around her? 

“Yo! Kayla!” The sound of Brad’s sharp voice made her flinch. She tried to relax as they maintained a weird locked-eyes thing while the busy restaurant traffic flowed around them. Her sense of unreality ramped up a thousand-fold when he moved into her personal space bubble and leaned toward her ear.

“I’m sorry. Can I buy you a drink later? When you’re done working?”

“Baxter! Dude! I told you to snag that hottie and bring her here,” his friend called from what she assumed was their table.

Kayla used the momentary distraction to take two full steps away from him. He was way too tempting. She was way too needy. But she had no time for or interest in some kind of a hookup. Although her body was sending her clear, opposing signals. Ones that urged her onward, made her want to flirt, to drink, to drag him home with her. She shook her head, and by the time he’d addressed his loud-mouthed table-mate, she’d managed to escape into the crowd.

“Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser” Book Launch


Date And Time

The Detroit Writing Room presents the book launch for “Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser.”

About this Event

You’ve said, “I do!” But, to what?

Many brides and grooms spend weeks, if not months, planning for the big day! The bride has to visit 19 different bridal shops to find that one perfect wedding dress. The centerpieces and bouquets have to be donned with the most exquisite flowers and accents. But after choosing the most quality linen, the finest cuisine and the most elaborate venue for the reception, many people realize they’ve planned for the wedding day—but failed to plan for the success of the marriage itself.

Once the walk down the aisle is over, many realize that they’ve said, “I do!” but they don’t even know to what!

In “Marriage Uncut II: Straight Talk, No Chaser,” five individuals share candid snapshots of moments in time where their marriage seemed more like a roller coaster ride than a “happily ever after” fairytale. On the other side of, “I do!” these individuals soon realized that marriage is about much more than the first dance and cutting a cake!

You may have something old and something new. You’ve found something borrowed and something blue. But, are you prepared for the morning after?

About the event:

At this book launch and signing, there will be a panel talk by the authors featured in the book:

Coni Hookfin

Angie Green

Tenita Johnson

Jermaine Johnson

Natasha Crawford

Orlando Crawford

You’ll have an opportunity to hear their experiences and get your copy of “Marriage Uncut II” signed. The event is free to attend. The book will be available for purchase for $14.99.

Wow! Is it September already? Pamela Hilliard Owens: YB2C and Detroit Ink Publishing @DIPLLC #motownwriters

Wow! It’s September already?!?

It’s September already?!? Well, yes it is. It’s also the 3rd month of the 3rd calendar quarter of the year.

What it is not is the “end” of the summer. Although Labor Day in the U.S. is considered the “unofficial end of summer,” we still have almost three weeks of “official summer” to enjoy!

This week’s newsletter is very short, just a couple of quick announcements. But watch this space, the YB2C Companies are busy as usual with great products, services, and programs to assist you with achieving your goals.

Follow Me on Medium!

As I briefly mentioned in a previous newsletter, I am moving the majority of my content writing to Medium. Because I have websites/blogs for the two main companies, AND the podcast, AND the branding/marketing training course, AND I’m active on all of my social media accounts, my blog posts and articles were in several different places.

By moving just about everything to Medium, my readers can now read all of my writing in one place. Medium has over 60 MILLION readers per month; a much larger following than all of my blogs and social media outlets put together!

Medium is free, offering the reading of up to three articles a month to all members. As an additional benefit to its members, Medium has a paid membership that allows members to read an unlimited number of articles each month on all kinds of interesting topics. The Medium paid membership plan is a very affordable $5/month or $50/year. From the membership fees, Medium pays its writers for most of their articles.

So if you enjoy my blog posts and articles, please follow me on Medium to receive notifications when I have posted stories there. Much appreciated!

If you would like to have a paid Medium membership, you can join the community here.

I look forward to seeing YOU on Medium!

Thanks!

 

It Takes Ten Years to Become an Overnight Success!

We just celebrated eleven years in business last July, and now we’re celebrating eleven months since the publishing of my book that details the year-by-year story of my first ten years as a freelance business owner!

Here is the information from the back cover:

In the middle of 2008, a determined woman who is a former teacher, a former college professor, and a former sales manager decides to start a business so she will no longer have to work for others. It was also the middle of the Great Recession, but she wasn’t thinking about that. She was really just thinking about opening the next month. Relying on her writing and editing skills, and her sales experience, she opens her doors on July 7, 2008. One year passes, and then another and another. As a freelance business owner, she experiences the highs and lows that all business owners go through. But one day, she looks around, and it has been TEN YEARS since she started and she’s a success, with three separate but related businesses and a podcast! Success just didn’t happen overnight, but it did happen.

The book is available on Amazon in both print and Kindle editions. An audio edition will be added soon. If you haven’t purchased your copy yet, it’s available here.

Thanks for your support!

 

Don’t Forget!

You can keep up with everything we’re doing by following us on all of our social media outlets:

Please take a minute to “friend” me and “follow” us. Thanks!

That’s it for this week’s
“YB2C on Wednesday!”
See you next time!
