ABOUT THE BOOK:

 

He was all they had . . .

In the face of a monster of a man, they were powerless. They couldn’t run, they couldn’t hide, they couldn’t fight. Every aspect of their lives were under his control. It was obedience or oblivion. When that monster of a man went down into a death spiral, he expected them to follow. To break free they needed an outsider, a stranger, a mercenary. They found him.

With all his troubles, and all his flaws, they found him. With all his baggage, and even his reluctance, they cried for him. It wasn’t only a question of would he do it, but could he. It wasn’t only a matter of saving them, but of saving himself.

Gabriel Wright was born, and raised in NYC.  Originally from the borough of the Bronx, Gabriel attended college at the City University of New York (CUNY). Afterwards, he spent 20 years in a career as an IT Professional.  Gabe admits it wasn’t exactly his dream job but he liked the work enough that he would’ve happily toiled away at it until mandatory (or forced) retirement.

Gabriel’s true dream job was being a writer.  It was always in the back of his mind, but it was always something that he thought he’d get around to eventually. Then a not so funny thing happened in Gabe’s IT career – he was laid off.  Although, sadly, it wasn’t the first time, this time he took it as a sign that eventually had finally come.  Gabriel began to write and ultimately producing his first novel Cry for the Mercenary.

Gabriel Wright still lives in NYC with his family.  Along with writing, he’s also trying to make a success of his family-owned bagel shop in Harlem.

The Backup Husband by Robert Germaux

Title: The Backup Husband

Author: Robert Germaux

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Length: 305 pages

ASIN: B00QMKZ0Z2

Available on Amazon

BOOK SYNOPSIS:  When Samantha and Steven meet early in their senior year of college, the attraction is both immediate and powerful.  And why not?  She’s the kind of woman every man desires, and he’s the man at the center of every woman’s dreams.  The two of them quickly forge a strong bond, creating their own little world, a world that they permit only one other person to enter: Steven’s roommate, Paul, every bit a hunk in his own right.  Now two become three, forming a group dynamic that one of their friends, a sociologist, says is “almost scary, how much in sync you guys are.”

The Backup Husband follows Steven, Samantha and Paul as they finish that last year of college and enter their young adult years, the bond among them seemingly unbreakable, until the most powerful force in the world intrudes, exposing how fragile the walls of their world really are.  From Pittsburgh to Paris to San Francisco and beyond, their story unfolds, with moments of unbridled joy punctuated by periods of unbearable sadness.  Along the way, each of the main characters is confronted by one question: What am I willing to do, or not do, in the name of love?  Their responses to that question will send them all down a path from which there can be no return, one that will dramatically alter their lives in ways that none of them could have foreseen.

Robert Germaux Author Photo OneAbout Robert Germaux, The Man with Romance in His Soul:

Robert Germaux is a romantic at heart . . . and he doesn’t mind letting the world know about it.  That’s why he never even considered using a different (read: female) author’s name for The Backup Husband, his modern-day love story.  Although his other novels are mysteries, with either a private detective or a police detective as the main character, in both cases, that detective has a love interest who is central to the story.  In fact, Mr. Germaux can’t imagine writing a book that doesn’t have a strong romantic element as part of the plot.

Just how romantic is Robert Germaux?  In the mid-nineties, his wife slipped on the stairs leading down to her kindergarten classroom.  Cynthia fractured several bones in her foot and ended up missing two months of school.  Every morning, before he left for work, her husband would hide a little note for her someplace where she would be sure to come across it during the day— propped up against a carton of milk in the refrigerator, inside the silverware drawer, under the remote control for the TV.  It’s a memory that both Bob and Cynthia cherish to this day.

Bob has a variety of other interests, including sports (he once signed a contract to pitch for a semi-pro baseball team in Pittsburgh) and travel (he and Cynthia have shared special moments everywhere from Paris to Toronto to Tahiti), but writing is among his favorite activities.  The idea for The Backup Husband came while he was playing the “What if” game one day: What if a woman suddenly realized she might actually be in love with two wonderful men at the same time?  He ended up writing the book in record time, enjoying every minute of the experience, and he hopes that’s the case for his readers, too.

~ Q&A with Author Robert T. Germaux ~

Have you always wanted to be a writer?

No, not at all.  I’ve always enjoyed writing, but the idea of writing a book didn’t occur to me until after I retired from teaching.  I tried a couple of books aimed at middle-school readers, and then my wife suggested I write a book for adults.  As usual, Cynthia’s idea was a good one.

Are there any authors whose works just grabbed you at first reading?

Three names come to mind.  When I was about sixteen, my father introduced me to P.G. Wodehouse’s Bertie and Jeeves novels, and I couldn’t get enough of those characters.  Then in 1974, I came across The Beowulf Manuscript, the first Spenser novel.  I was immediately hooked on anything by Robert B. Parker.  Finally, Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes was so beautifully written, I was sure I would love anything else he wrote, which turned out to be exactly the case.

How long does it take you to write a book?

I pretty much zipped through The Backup Husband in about six months, and Small Talk, my serial killer novel which will be available on Amazon very soon, took just a bit longer.  Most of my other books, however, come in at about a year or so.

Are you a disciplined writer, one who wants to write so many words or pages per day?

I’m a very organized person, but not necessarily disciplined in that way.  Some days, I’ll write a whole chapter, which in my books is usually around 1200 words, but then I might not write another chapter for several days.  However, one thing I’m always doing is making notes about characters, settings, dialogue, etc.  My wife is incredibly understanding about being awakened at two in the morning when I turn on the light to get something down before I forget it.

Do you always know how a book will end when you begin writing it?

Unfortunately, no.  Sometimes I start out with an ending in mind, but as I get deeper into my plot, I’ll realize that that ending won’t work.  Sometimes, as was the case with The Backup Husband, the ending I envisioned works, but I’ll have to change the setting.  And sometimes I simply have no idea how I’ll end a book.  I just start writing and trust that somewhere along the way, I’ll figure it out.

Any advice for new writers?

During the years I taught high school English, I had a poster on my classroom wall that read There is no such thing as good writing, just good rewriting.  I think that’s excellent advice for all writers, new or otherwise.

About the Book:

Being different in America has never been easy; being born different and in the wrong body in Solitude, Virginia in the 1950’s, is brutal. Smiley Hanlon lives day to day trapped in a Coal Miners town, buffeted by the Appalachian’s and generations of hate and mistrust. Any hint of being different, or being a ‘Freak’ is enough to ostracize you, pigeon hole you and make you a target for bullying – or worse. Backed by his best friend and protector, Lee Moore, Smiley made it through the days…until the night everything shattered. Chosen as the lead in a new town production called Dorothy of Oz Coal Camp, it seemed to be the beginning to acceptance and maybe even happiness, but the world is cruel and mankind even crueler. The triumph of the play decayed into a Coal Miners version of “Carrie” culminating in a tragic and horrific moment that would change both Smiley and Lee – forever.

About the Author:

About the Author Just as in his essays, Mr. Howery’s novel, “The Grass Sweeper God” showcases familial and character driven stories about real people with real hardcore prejudices and passions (the American experience dotted with its flaws and beauty). This is only fitting since Mr. Howery’s own experience parrallels the plot line. Real-life characters which represent the struggles of growing up gay in remote Appalachia during the volatile ‘60s. Mr. Howery lives with his companion of thirty years in Virginia where he is at work on his next novel.
