Diverse Reader is so pleased to have author Candice Blake here to show you the cover of her new book and share a little about it! I hope you enjoy :D
Heya, I want to thank Meredith so much for the opportunity to guest post in her blog! I have to admit that doing a guest post on Diverse Reader was a bit scary and intimidating. I have a bad habit of procrastinating with things that I am unfamiliar with. Meredith has been really understanding and accommodating with this, and I thank her for that! <3
I am so honored to get to share my upcoming release with everyone!
I've never really given readers a behind the scenes look of my process when writing so I am hoping to use this opportunity to share!
When I first started planning out this series, I knew it was going to be about four brothers. In the first book, we get to look into the lives of two of them, Leo and Kingston. Throughout the series, I am going to reveal more about the whole family, including the two other brothers and their parents.
In the first book, we focus on Leo's story, the second youngest brother. I've always loved reading books that follow characters through a long period of time, so I try to do that throughout the whole series.
I write a lot of age gap and May to December books. But this one is a bit different because Leo, the younger MC takes on the more dominant role in the relationship. Graves is much older than Leo and he takes on the more submissive role. Graves is a huge softy, and after his divorce, he's been finding it hard to get back into dating. That's where Leo comes in to help out.
I've been trying to play around with different themes and tropes to make my stories less conventional, and I've been having a lot of fun in the writing process.
What I didn't expect was to fall in love with so many of the side characters in this book. There's Kingston, who is Leo's younger brother, and the next MC in the series. There's Leo's dad who has a very touching scene with his son Leo. (I won't reveal too much information on that so I don't spoil the story for you!) Then, there’s Graves’s best friend, Shawn, who helps guide Graves through this new relationship with a younger man.
Alright, enough chit-chat! Here's the cover and blurb for Leo (Beckford Brothers Book 1)!
RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, APRIL 2, 2019
