In honor of the imminent release of The Bowman’s Inn anthology I would like to sit down with one of the delightful inn employees. But first, let’s give you a little peek into what to expect from this sweet and sexy collection of stories:
In the city of Anteros, you might find yourself at the Bowman’s Inn. You could be lonely, hurting, or lost more than you know. The bartender, Valentine Archer, will know just what you need. He not only looks like a Greek god, he used to be one. Cupid prefers to be called Val these days. But he still knows how to mend a broken heart.
Six authors have combined their talent to bring you a collection of tales with romance, mystery and maybe a little humor. The delightful short stories feature characters who own or operate the facilities of the Bowman’s Inn or are just passing through. Whatever the case, Cupid has a way to help each of them find what their hearts require. Mark your calendars. The Spring edition of the Bowman’s Inn Anthology is expected to be released in April 2015.
Now with that in mind, allow me to introduce Stacey Moore, one of the fine bartenders working along side Valentine Archer at The Bowman’s Inn.
Brandy Ayers: Hi Stacey, how are you today?
Stacey Moore: I’m pretty good Brandy, how are you doing? That trio of troublemakers from The Arrangement treating you any better?
BA: Ugh, don’t get me started on those three. They’re going to be the death of me. But enough about me, let’s talk about you! But none of that “what’s your favorite color?” BS. Let’s get straight to the point. What is your greatest regret?
SM: Jeez B, you aren’t taking it easy on me! That is really a hard one. I would love to say marrying that asshole of a man, if you can call him that, that I call an ex-husband. But I can’t regret marrying him, because without him I wouldn’t have our amazing daughters. I do regret giving up my career because he wanted me to stay home with the kids. It made it a lot harder to support my girls when he cut and run.
BA: That prick. Don’t worry, karma will catch up with his ass. Okay, let’s lighten the mood a little bit. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
SM: Now that’s easy! Perfect happiness is standing in my kitchen whipping up a batch of my killer cupcakes with my girls. Nothing better than hearing those two giggle while throwing powdered sugar everywhere.
BA: Come on, are you really telling me perfect happiness isn’t something more along the lines of an earth shattering orgasm. Perhaps brought on by Clayton, that sexy as hell brewer that’s been coming into the bar lately?
SM: Haha. Well, that certainly wouldn’t be bad.
BA: My, my, Miss Moore are you blushing?
SM: Oh shut up Brandy! Next question.
BA: Uh huh. Okay, What is your current state of mind?
SM: Crazed. Between working strange hours at the Inn, spending time with my daughters, and trying to keep my head above water with all our bills and keeping the house standing, I barely have time to breath. And, yes, before you ask, I’m also incredibly sexually frustrated.
BA: Well since you brought it up, what is your favorite quality in a man? Personally I’m an ass gal. Nothing like a well formed gluteus maximus!
SM: Do you ever get your mind out of the gutter Brandy?
BA: Very rarely, what would be the fun in that?
SM: You’re crazy. Okay, favorite quality in a man, let me think… I’m going to say loyalty. Someone that is willing to stand by you no matter what. Be a rock for you, but at the same time won’t be afraid to lean on you when he needs you. Of course being funny and smart don’t hurt either.
BA: Don’t forget what he’s got in his pants!
SM: You have a filthy mind woman!
BA: I know, that’s why you love me!
SM: If you so say.
BA: Last question. What is your biggest fear.
SM: I think it’s a tie. First would be that I’m going to irreparably screw up the girls because of all this shit with their father, or I won’t be able to provide for them. Second is that I’ll grow old alone because I won’t ever find someone that I can trust again.
BA: Don’t worry Stacey. If there is one thing I know about Val and The Bowman’s Inn, it’s that he always knows exactly how to help. Thanks for talking with me sweetie! Give the kiddos a hug from their auntie Brandy.
Well that’s it for now. You can read more about Stacey and Clayton in “Strange Brew” look for it soon on Amazon! Have an orgasmic evening!
