Cocktails & Cock Tales with Sharita Lira




Today we have Sharita Lira at the cyber bar. Sharita is in one word, crazy. Just crazy enough to have 3 4 different muses running around in her head, driving her to sheer exhaustion with new plot bunnies and complex characters. In addition to being a computer geek and a metalhead, Sharita loves live music, reading, and perusing the net for sexy men to be her muses.  She’s also a founding member and contributor to the heavy metalezine Fourteeng.net.

What we are Drinking
Sharita L: Jack and Coke. Very Simple! ;)
Deanna: First things first. Where are you and what are you wearing?
Sharita: (((Drinks Jack and Coke))) In my kitchen and wearing a brown sundress. Nothing overly sexy, but comfortable since it’ hot. (((laughs)))
Deanna: What’s your poison? Vodka? Gin? Beer?
Sharita: (((Pours some more Jack Daniels in Glass))) Jack Daniels is my favorite poison, although I do love some Tequila from time to time.
Deanna: (((pours them both a round))) Cheers! Now that we’re comfy, tell me about your new book? (((sips on her cocktail)))
Sharita: (((sips and pours more Jack in))) Ah, now that’s better. My latest book is called Something About Jayden. It’s a love story under my sensual pseudonym Rawiya about two men; one older, Isaac Bridges who is closeted and married and the other, a young Hispanic male intern named Jayden DeMario looking to succeed at the company Isaac runs. The two meet and the sparks are evident but Isaac is married, which presents problem one. Problem two? Jayden doesn’t want a relationship on the job.
Deanna: Where did the idea for SOMETHING ABOUT JAYDEN come from? 
Sharita: (((takes another sip))) I actually thought of the idea when I was at work. I love May/December romances and there really aren’t that many stories out there featuring gay main characters of Black and/or Latino descent. More Diversity is needed in all romances. Okay, sorry, off my soapbox. 
Deanna: What was the hardest part of writing this story for you?
Sharita: (((finishing the drink and covers mouth))) Excuse me! Um, I believe the ending, which I always struggle with. I was anxious about ending it too soon. They only had sex once and I think I did a good job with it, but I worried if I needed more action and or sex. After the betas went over it, they all said they went through enough. They’re truly loveable characters. I hated to see their story end.
Deanna: (((pours them another round))) Boy, these things are tasty!! Now, what’s the easiest thing about writing your book?
Sharita: (((gulps immediately)) Um, I’d say the conversation. With Jayyyy… oops (((slurs words))) Jayden it seemed to come real natural. (((fans self))) Um, is it getting hot in here, Deanna?
Deanna: Uh no. So, are you a plotter or a panster? (((Blinks)))
Sharita: (((still fanning and wipes sweat off brow))) I’m a mixture of… all 3… oops (((holds up fingers))) Two. I like to plot and pan. (((giggles)))
Deanna: How long have you been writing?
Sharita: (((laughs out loud))) Not long enough apparently. I really need to slow down on these drinks. That last one hit me hard! (((still laughing like a hyena)))
Deanna: (((clears throat))) Um Sharita, do you ever have writers block? On those occasions that I do, I usually have a cocktail … or three…LOL But that’s just me.
Sharita: Nope, not really. (((hiccups and giggles)))
Deanna: Most of my stories have a theme song, do you do that for your characters?? If so what is it?
Sharita: That would be an old  R&B some, What You Won’t Do For Love. That really isn’t my type of music, but this song spoke to…spoke to… um… me and my characters.
Deanna: Tell us about a scene that you have written then afterwards, when you read it, you shocked yourself? You know I want a dirty answer (((hint hint)))
Sharita: (((Straightens in chair))) I’d have to say the stripper scene I wrote under my Michael Mandrake name for I Like Em Pretty. I think I rocked that scene and showed how beautiful Kajika really is. I captured his dance… the man is just hot. And for this book, the sex scene was beautiful. They only have one and I was floored. I’ll give you a piece down below. And thanks for having me tod…today. (((Covers mouth and giggles))) Let’s have another now that the interview is over!

SOMETHING ABOUT JAYDEN
Isaac Bridges has it all: wealth and success. Yet and still, there are two things he desires more than anything. Denton & Associates back under his family’s name and a male lover he can call his own. 
Jayden Demario, a handsome college student from a tough neighborhood is looking to make his career in advertising. His “madre” encourages him to take time out and find love but he wishes to follow his career path first and foremost. 
Both men are missing a significant other in their lives, will stupid pride and hurtful secrets stand in the way of what could be a perfect union?


Excerpt:
Excited and jumpy about what was to come, Jayden completely ignored the d├ęcor of Isaac’s condo and instead concentrated on their heated embrace. With each kiss, Jayden’s heart fluttered and his stomach was in knots over what was to happen.
When they reached the top, Isaac carried him into the large bedroom with the four-poster bed, dropping him lightly onto the mattress. With a wild look in his eyes, he hovered over Jayden, rubbing his covered erection against Jayden’s inner thigh.
Oh God.
Jayden licked his lips, never breaking the gaze between him and Isaac. He ogled Isaac’s caramel body, loving how firm and perfectly built he was in all the right places. Perfect pecs, the lines and valleys that led to his rock hard abs, the man was a living Greek god, and Jayden couldn’t help but be impressed. He toyed with Isaac’s boxers, tracing the seam, desperately wanting to see what was underneath the black fabric. “Are you going to take these off for me?” Jayden knew he would but wanted to see it sooner rather than later.
“Yes, but I wanted to stare at this lovely body I’ve dreamed about for months. I want to study it…” Isaac dragged his long finger from the tip of Jayden’s chin down his neck and onto his collarbone. “I want to know every part…” Isaac leaned down and placed a light peck on Jayden’s Adam’s apple. “Every nook…” Isaac trailed down to the center of Jayden’s chest with his nose while his finger pinched Jayden’s nipple.
“Ugnnhh…” Jayden winced, and his cock sprung a leak. Damn he wanted this man so bad, but Isaac seemed totally content with playing this way. “Isaac, please…”
“Every crevice…” Isaac continued to move down with his nose and lips to the space in between Jayden’s navel and waist. His tongue fiddled with the gold ring while he gently dragged his fingertips against Jayden’s skin.
“Ooh, Isaac… Oh God… Please…” Jayden clawed the covers and squirmed underneath his touches. “You’re gonna make me suffer for making you wait, right? Oh God, please don’t, I can’t…”
“No suffering… I told you, just exploring. I want to make you completely comfortable.” Isaac circled his belly button with his tongue and dropped lower until he got to Jayden’s waistband. Isaac didn’t bother removing Jayden’s boxers, instead, he dipped some more, nuzzling a space on the side of his erection. He licked it through the fabric, suckled and nibbled on that spot while running his fingers over Jayden’s nut sack.
“Fuuu….Oh God, Isaac… Please…” Jayden gnashed his teeth, and his eyes rolled up into his head. His whole brain turned to mush from what Isaac was doing to him. “Damn, Isaac…you’re gonna make me come, I swear… Oh God. I’m not gonna last.”
