Tracy Reed has teamed up with Goddess Fish Promotions to celebrate the release of her book What My Friends Don’t Know. As part of her tour Tracy will be awarding a $10 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner. See the bottom of this post for more information.

First, enjoy this quick interview with Tracy.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am like my reader. I love God, fashion and cute guys.  I’m also a lot like my characters, in that I’m a small business owner.  I own an online lingerie store for curvy woman.

Who are some of your favorite authors (or books)?

That’s a tough questions. I’m not going to say they’re my favorites.  I’ll say they are some of the ones I enjoy reading.  Pepper Winters, Elizabeth Lennox, Jasinda Wilder, Kitty Bucholtz, Deborah Blandon, Julia Kent, and Melody Anne.

What do you like most about being a self-published writer?

The thing I like most about self-publishing, is the freedom. I like not having to defend my choices.

What was the inspiration for What My Friends Don’t Know?

I wanted to write a Sex and the City, type of book for Christians. I also, wanted to show people that when it comes to fashion, romance and their career choices, Christians have the same feelings about those subjects.

What’s next for you?

What’s next for me? I have a few things coming.  The follow up to WHAT MY FRIENDS DON’T KNOW and THE GOOD GIRL.  Both are done and in the pre-editing stage.  Part two of GENERATIONAL CURSE, is half-way complete. Later this month, I’m releasing a book of poetry, LOVE NOTES.

MediaKit_BookCover_TheAlexChroniclesBLURB:

Alexandra “Alex” Miller and her best friends are more like sisters. They live by the code that a good girlfriend will stick by you and be honest with you not matter what.

They’ve been friends over twenty years and have seen each other through marriage, divorce, broken engagement, death and other minor crisis. But it’s the secrets they’ve failed to trust each other with. Each of them is holding on to a secret they believe could destroy not only their reputation, but their friendship as well.

Alex and her best friends, Chloe, Taylor, Kendell and Dionne all long for one thing, a happy ending. As they’ve gotten older, they’ve discovered, not everyone gets the fairytale happy ending they want, but the reality life has orchestrated for them.

Excerpt:

He stopped in front of us and my mind immediately filled with thoughts no good Christian girl should know anything about. I wonder what he looks like wet and naked. I looked around hoping I hadn’t said that out loud.

“Hello, Taylor.” He smiled.

Oh God, did You recycle Barry White’s voice box and put it inside this beautiful package? My hormones and body went into a tailspin and I was ruined for any other man on this planet.

“Hi Moses. I’m glad you came.”

He kissed the back of her hand and replied, “Thank you for inviting me. Good evening, I’m Moses Adair.”  He took my hand, turned it over and gently kissed it.  I think my uterus just flipped over.

Moses, lead me to the Promise land. “Alexandra Miller.”

“Are you the Alex?” He asked.

If I wasn’t, I was now. “Which Alex would that be?” I replied with a smile.

“The Alex I’ve been hearing people talk about all evening.”

“Depends on what you’ve heard.” I’m trying to flirt and that’s not something I’m good at. I wanted to tell him, “I’m whoever I need to be in order to keep talking to you.”

“Excuse me,” Taylor said and left us standing in the middle of the room.

“I heard a woman say she hoped the pink dress Alex was wearing would be available at the store, because she liked the way it…” He slowly looked me up and down. When his eyes met mine, he was smiling. I instantly recognized that smile. It’s the same one I had when I first spotted him. “…framed her face.”

I gave him the same smile he gave me. “Then, I guess I am that Alex.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I am a single Christian woman who loves God, Fashion and Cute Guys. Not all women who write Christian fiction will admit to that.

The subjects I write about are considered taboo in Christian fiction. If you want to read about Christians dealing with unrequited love, apprehension to give love another chance, arranged marriages, physical attraction, divorce, annulment, controlling their urges, infidelity, abortion, dating younger men, being a single mother, slipping up and sleeping with your estranged ex, standing up for yourself, being honest about not liking your in-laws, still being attracted to your ex, battling postpartum depression, having challenges in your walk with Christ or if you aren’t too proud to admit you sometimes get angry and yell at God, then you’re in the right place.

The people that read my books have a thing for designer clothes and accessories and aren’t ashamed to admit it. To them a cute Christian guy on their arm is the finish to the perfect outfit. Sort of like lipstick, you don’t have to have it, but it sure makes you feel prettier when you do.
