#TNTConfidential Author Interview with Jacey Holbrand (@JaceyHolbrand) & The Encounter #gay #romance




Greetings darlings! Today I have a new to me author sitting here at my side. No, of course I’m not laughing evilly. I’ll be nice, I promise.

Welcome Jacey to In A Dream Beyond and to #TNTConfidential. What happens here, stays here, so tell me, what is your dream?

Jacey: I’d love to touch readers’ hearts with my stories, make enough money with my writing to cover my home expenses, and travel more.

Since it’s your first visit, I must ask: When did you start writing and why?

Jacey: I’ve been writing for years. It one of those things where if I don’t I feel like I’d go crazy.

You’re first book, The Encounter is a male/male romance. Why did you chose to write m/m?

Jacey: I feel love comes in all forms. Why not celebrate that love between men with the written word?

A little bird told me that The Encounter is book 1 of a series called The Agency. What can you tell us about this particular series?

Jacey:
The Encounter is the first book in a series I’ve started called: The Agency. An ‘advertisement’ for The Agency goes something like this: “Seen a ghost? Have issues with a poltergeist? Experienced a close encounter? If you’ve come across something odd and don’t know what your next step is, call The Agency. We’re here to help you regarding your supernatural needs.”

What was your greatest challenge when it came to writing The Encounter?

Jacey: Writing it for a specific purpose. I’d originally targeted the story for an anthology.

Did you have to do any research while writing it?

Jacey: A little. Mostly when it came to the brief sci-fi aspect of the story.

In five words, why will we fall in love with Zen and Seth?

Jacey: They are really cute together.

Summer Loving…
Summer is here! What’s your best summer memory?
Jacey: Traveling with the family in the Caribbean.
Any recommendations to stave off this heat?
Jacey: Stay indoors in the AC!
For women (or for yourself): bikini, trikini, full body bathing suit, other?
Jacey: For me, full body bathing suit. For others, whatever they’re comfortable in.
For men: Board shorts, swim trunks, swim briefs, or string lateral flash thong (picture here)
Jacey: Board shorts
Favorite summer destination?
Jacey: The beach
Any plans for this summer?
Jacey: Writing, writing, writing with a couple of trips thrown in.

The Agency, 1
Evan ‘Zen’ Zenas is the top agent at The Agency and is known for his brusque demeanor. He’s also known to be tough on trainees. Those who find themselves under his tutelage usually don’t last long. When he’s assigned a new assistant, Seth Trivos, Zen’s faced with questions about his past he’s not too keen on answering.

Seth Trivos knew Evan once upon a time, loved him even, but when Evan disappeared, he unknowingly broke Seth’s heart. Now, he’s in Evan’s world as the newest recruit at The Agency, and he’s looking for answers.

Will Zen chase away another new assistant because he doesn’t want to open up about a past encounter or will being forced on a case together make him face the demons he’s been trying to hide from?
Be Warned: m/m sex

I’m so excited! My story The Encounter is now available!

~~~~EXCERPT ~~~~


Zen threw his arms around him in a tight hold and claimed his mouth with wild abandon. Seth’s head reeled. He couldn’t believe he and Zen
were kissing. Granted, it wasn’t anything like the soft moments and slow love making he’d imagined over the years, but he’d take what he could get at the moment.
Zen moved his hands up and down Seth’s back. The heated touch under his jacket and over his shirt seared his skin in a delightful way. Zen’s lips pressed upon his almost too violently. He swept his tongue out, forcing Seth to open his mouth.
Seth adored the taste of him, salty and spicy, and his scent of leather and earth as well.
God, for so long he’d waited to have Zen in his arms, his body close. Zen’s lips trailed down his neck. Seth reached up and cupped the back of Zen’s head. Zen pulled at his shirt, tugging it from the confines of his pants without breaking the kiss. In the process of kissing him, somehow Zen was able to unbutton and unzip both their pants and free their cocks out of the openings.
Desire rushed through Seth, clawing at his insides. Zen clutched at him like a drowning man scrambling for purchase on any floating thing to save him from the watery depths. Hands traveled over his shoulders, up his shirt, feeling all the nuances of his chest and back down to his rock-hard cock. The man held their dicks against each other, and Seth sucked in a long stream of air. The feel of their two satiny lengths rubbing together was a heady sensation.
Zen turned their bodies and laid them down. He stretched over Seth. Seth loved feeling the weight and heat of Zen’s strong body atop his. Still, Zen continued to kiss him, and he continued to surrender to the demand of Zen’s mouth.
