Tour Kick Off: Hold On! by @Pete_Darley #giveaway

Romantic Suspense/Thriller
Date Published: July 9, 2014

Two lovers! A deadly conspiracy! A race to freedom! 

When Carringby Industries, a government-contracted arms manufacturer, is raided by what appear to be terrorists, the CEO’s secretary, Belinda Reese, is rescued by Brandon Drake, a dashing young AWOL soldier. Using an experimental test aircraft, he flees with her to his remote, isolated cabin in the mountains of Aspen. 

While assisting in the design of military weaponry, Brandon discovered a plot within his own government to attack its own facilities, under the guidance of immoral politician, Senator Garrison Treadwell. Belinda’s body was not found among the dead at Carringby Industries, and Treadwell suspects that Drake was responsible for rescuing her. In an effort to entrap him, Treadwell arranges for an all points bulletin to be placed on Belinda. 

Deeply in love, Brandon and Belinda attempt to escape from America, only to endure one harrowing experience after another as they try to evade and expose Treadwell’s corrupt faction. 

But on the run, with danger around every corner, Brandon makes a discovery so devastating that it shatters the very foundations of his reality.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

– Potentially, yes.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

 – Getting a publishing contract.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

– Not from my family. I tend to leave them out of it. I’ve learned from my own mistakes, and picked up many tips from my editor about how mainstream novels should be written today, as opposed to yesterday. I’ve also had a lot of support from some of my friends.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

– I’m currently working on Run! – Hold On! Season 3.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

– I used to. I had a penchant for horror novels (believe it or not) and I am a major-league fan of Marvel Comics. With writing and marketing, I don’t get much time to read anymore. When I do, it’s generally to write a review for one of my colleague’s books.
