I’ve worked many jobs in my life, and the best of them has been in a radio station being responsible for what song was going to play next. But I also write fiction novels and I’m working on a story about how music brought love and romance between a female tow truck driver and a male appliance repair mechanic. For me it’s a touching story and all my life’s work has gone into it’s making. I’m hoping to get it published sometime next year and this blog will hopefully give me some support in the marketing.
The premise of my story: Repairing a Towed Heart
The female character, Ashley, drives her tow truck in inner British Columbia 7 days a week, trying to lift her start-up business of its heels. She works like a sumpter, dragging her weather-worn tail across the brambles of life. She has no desire but succeeding in her dream, but at the end of the day she slaps herself in the mirror because secretly–lying to herself quotidian–she hates her job. She prays something greater will enter her life to make it all worthwhile.
The male character, Charles, lives on the less burnt side of the fire log, so to speak. He loves his job, but only works part time because he’s lazy. In fact, the only thing that gets him down is that he’s too lazy to work the amount of work he desires to. He repairs appliances for an old company in Kelowna BC and loves working with his hands. One day, while driving through British Columbia, he sees Ashley depressed at the wheel, helping some sot get his caravan out of a ditch, and he decides to curb his van to lend a hand.
I don’t want to spoil the rest of the story because the next scene doesn’t go like you might expect it to. I’m excited. Stay tuned if you’re at all interested, because this book will be huge for the romance community; I know it!
