Beyond The Page & Giveaway: “Fourteen Pages” by James Fant

14-Pages Ebook Cover New.

Welcome to CABR James 🙂

What is Fourteen Pages really about?

Fourteen Pages is about Marco and Venice Goldsmith: a desperate couple trying to save their wreck of a marriage. A self-proclaimed marriage expert proposes a bizarre 14-page contract that stipulates (in great detail) the dos and don’ts of their relationship.

Of course the contract includes consequences for violating any of the predetermined rules of their marriage. The question is can they truly follow the contract to the letter without someone being seriously injured?

 

Why did you write this book?

I wrote this book to look at romance from a different angle. Many romance novels are about single people who are building that love that normally leads to marriage. In Fourteen Pages, Marco and Venice are already married. Romantic tension and excitement doesn’t end with marriage. In reality, that’s when it really starts to become most fun and most challenging.

I also wrote Fourteen Pages to answer a “what if” question. Marriage licenses are routine. Marriage contracts are not. So I was thinking one day, possibly after a good argument with my wife, what if marriage contracts were required just like marriage licenses. And what if those contracts included rules and regulations to govern every aspect of the marriage? Perhaps the contract would govern discretionary spending.

Maybe it would govern how many children the couple will have. Or the number of times per week that the couple will have sex. One would think that if two people came together in matrimony with that sort of document, they should have absolutely no troubles. That may or may not be the case. I wanted to have fun with the question and I actually had a lot of fun with it.

 

How would you describe yourself as an author? What types of books do you write?


James Fant photoI’m a story teller. Whether that story is romance, suspense, or mystery, I want to weave a thrilling tale that readers will not want to put down.

I love twists but I’d rather use one big twist than several small ones. I feel like using multiple twists cheapens a story.

Finally, as an author I like to mix fantasy with reality, to write scenes that catch readers off guard.

I write inspirational romance and suspense. The thing that I love about writing fiction is you can create this wonderful and exciting story with lots of twists and turns. But the story can also have meaningful characters and situations that readers can identify with and learn from.

 

What’s next for you in 2013?

I will release two more novels before the end of 2013. The first is a romance novel about a woman who has the power to make her boyfriend do whatever she desires. The second is the beginning of a series of novels about an undercover FBI agent who must do the unthinkable to infiltrate a criminal organization.

Ideal vacation?

Royal Caribbean Cruise

 

Coffee or Tea?

Definitely Coffee

 

If you could spend a day with someone famous, living or dead, who would it be and why?

I would love to spend a day with Shonda Rhimes. I love her work on the TV show “Scandal”, how she grips and surprises her viewers.

I would fill that day with questions about character and plot development. I would probably spend that entire day taking notes.
