Ah, Double Agent Coochie . . . that shameless hussy. While some
may find her silly, immature, and unnecessary, she does serve a purpose to the
story dynamic. Multiple purposes, in fact.
First, she’s the comic relief, and without a comic relief,
the story could get pretty heavy. A virgin auctions her body off to the highest
bidder in an effort to save her dying mother’s life. Heavy stuff, right? Personally,
I like a little hehe-haha with my lip biting and growlies and teary eyes and sniffles
Second, and probably most important, she makes what Lanie
does, how easily she slips into her role, more believable. We all read stories
where the formula is that of a reluctant heroin placed in a situation where she
must be submissive, but finds she likes it. Right? Well, I never buy into it.
Doesn’t matter how hot the sex is. I need the story to be realistic. The
dilemma I was then faced with was how to make Lanie’s submission and eagerness
Enter the Cooch.
Cooch is sort of like an alter ego, if you will. Lanie’s
scapegoat. A coping mechanism to help her mentally and emotionally deal with
the situation she’s found herself in.
Double Agent Coochie makes it possible for Lanie to secretly

Whoa! So it’s been a week since the release of A MILLION DIRTY SECRETS and I feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world. I know that’s a slight exaggeration, but if you’ve been following my Facebook Page, or if you’ve gone out to your local store to pick up a copy of the book, then you know they’re FLYING off the shelves. Like this Target shelf on day #1 of availability.
^^^EMPTY SHELF THAT HAD TO BE RE-STOCKED^^^
Shut the front door! I think I’m still in shock. And then there was this . . . ALL OVER the place . . .
So I’m feeling like a rock star, right? Because, come on . . . that’s pretty dope! (Do people still say dope?) Not really. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I may have shed a tear or two, but thank goodness, the admin of my street team, Parker’s Pimpin’ Posse, was there. Alicia Justice and her bohunk, Joshua Young, drove all the way to my humble abode to keep me in line on release day. They run Jitterbug PR, so they’re pretty adept at handling this sort of thing. Bless them. They’re the real rock stars.
And speaking of rocking, … Read More »
Guess what today is … That’s right, RELEASE DAY!!!!
In honor of today, and because I’m crazy busy, I ran a contest for my street team, Parker’s Pimpin’ Posse, to be able to Jack CL’s Style and blog. The following is the winning post from Nikki Thomson.
Pulling up on my vintage Harley, I kill
the engine before approaching the podium, gently pushing CL Parker out of the
What is up my crazy ass, sassy

divalicious CL Parker a bit of a break.

bus up a few stops then.
My name is Dez and my best friend is
Lanie Talbot. Well, I kinda like her and
shit, so I guess that makes her my best babe.
And she’s one of the most selfless
people I have ever met.
And then, of course, there is Noah Crawford …
And that’s all I’m gonna say ‘bout him
And throughout it … Read More »

Do you know Noah Crawford from my newest series, Million Dollar Duet? Would you like to get to know him before anyone else? Well, you can. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Duet, let me give you an introduction.
Noah Crawford is a drop-dead gorgeous business mogul who has virtually everything he wants – everything, that is, except a woman to satisfy his most basic physical needs. But after things with his ex went south and left him with an irreparable broken heart, Noah isn’t looking to get involved in a serious relationship ever again. Which is why he jumps at the opportunity to enter into a two-year contract with Lanie Talbot, a sexy 24-year-old virgin who, in exchange for $2 million, has agreed to make herself available to him whenever and however he wants. Both may have their own reasons for signing onto the terms, but what neither of them ever expected was to fall in love. Now, they’ll have to attempt to keep the truth of their relationship from everyone else, including Lanie’s family and a business partner whose goal is to take everything Noah holds dear.
Get to know Noah before the rest of the world … Read More »
