D.T. Peterson’s Seduction In Red
When I had D.t. here on my blog last time, he briefly mentioned Seduction in Red in the interview I did (you can read it here). Since then I’ve been waiting to hear more about the book. It’s out now and you don’t want to miss it.Instead of interviewing D.t. again, I decided to ask about his typical writing day. So he’s here today telling us a little bit about his writing. After his guest post, read all about the book and an excerpt that will leave you wanting more. At the very bottom enter for a chance to win a copy of the book.
Typical would not define a day of writing. Sometimes I will spend weeks not writing. I have to be motivated, consumed to write a thought or a scene swirling in my head. Most days, I’m too exhausted from work to write anything I would consider profound. And then there are those times when I’m compelled to write. Dark, soulful scenes I enjoy writing at night, sitting out by the fire and the pond, listening to the waterfall. Early mornings on the weekends when I’m fresh and rested, I love to write the scenes that demand clarity, or the moments that define the course of the book. Others times I write for the personal satisfaction, a way to escape reality and ponder a world where things can be different. Once the characters crawl into your mind, they beckon you to write, to tell their story.
Trevor is young, rich and single; completely open and out about who he is, unwilling to hide it from anyone. Cody is shy and inexperienced, exploring the desires he secretly craves to fulfill for the first time. Unknowingly, they venture down a path which neither of them could have ever imagined.
“I’m Trevor,” he said smiling broadly, stretching out his hand.
“Hi, I’m Cody,” I said shaking his hand.
He held my hand longer than I was used to and I gazed at the rings on his fingers and the bracelets on his wrists.
“How did you know what I was drinking?”
“I noticed you as soon as you walked in,” he said, seductively, smiling.
“Yeah, I’ve never seen you before. You must be new.”
“Oh,” I half smiled back, “I’ve never been here before. It’s my first time.”
“Thought so,” he continued, in between swigging on his beer and checking me out.
“Huh?” I replied, leaning closer towards him, unable to hear him above the music.
“C’mon,” he shouted above the blaring disco music as he grabbed the beer bottles off of the bar, “follow me.”
He led me around the dance floor, to the back of the club where it was less noisy.
“Here,” he said sitting down, closely, next to me at a table, “This is better.”
“It is, I can hear you now.” I agreed.
“You’re really cute,” he started, “but you look really young. How old are you?”
“Just turned twenty one,” I stated proudly.
“Sweet,” he said grinning deviously, “but you look younger…”
“I get that a lot…” I replied.
“It’s cool, I’m twenty three. Not too old for you is it?”
“No idea yet,” I replied nervously.
“Can I ask you something?”
“Yeah,” I replied.
“Have you done anything yet?”
“Yeah, you known, been with another guy?”
“Oh, no. Not yet.”
“Hot. But you want to?”
“I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately.”
“Guess that’s why you’re here,” he chuckled.
“Yeah, I suppose so, I’m curious…”
“How about you?” I asked.
“Me?” he said proudly, “I’ve been out awhile. Can’t ya tell?”
I could actually. He had an air of confidence about him, secure in knowing who he was, not caring about what anyone else thought. He had long blonde hair and stunning blue eyes. He was almost androgynous looking. I couldn’t help but not look at him as I had followed him from the bar, gazing at his lean and slender body.
D.t. Peterson lives in the suburbs of Philadelphia. He enjoys traveling, and being outdoors. His hobbies include canoeing, hiking, whitewater rafting, and furniture making. His debut novel was The Cove.
