Angela- With two young children already in her nest, she is set to finally find a man of substance, for her life and theirs. But when she finds this man belongs to another, will she go for the physical fling that her body yearns for, or will she do what it takes to take this man and keep him for herself?

Nyla- Young and strong, yet tender of heart, she is motivated by passion and courage, while still being hindered by innocence and fear. Can she see herself diving into something new and unknown or has lost loves of the past already left her jaded and unwilling to give her heart up again?

Prince- All his life girls thought his friendship was too valuable to ever risk losing by having sex with him. Tired of being stuck in a never ending friend zone, he was set on leaving the good guy reputation behind him and start getting laid for a change. But after his potential is awoken, will he become just another womanizer, or is there the possibility of something greater…

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I just wanted an outlet for my fantasies and experiences. Most of what you'll read are true events. The characters you'll read about are real people. I simply embellished some stories and did a lot of combining multiple people to make one character.

HUCKLEBERRY MILTON by Bradley J Milton @bradleyjmilton

huckleberrymilton_bradleyjmilton
HUCKLEBERRY MILTON is a brand new rewrite of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, set in a time warp between Haight-Ashbury in the Summer of Love and today, right here on the social-media Internet. It’s like Austin Powers meets The Office with a mix of 80s technology and today’s Internet. The experimental literary cut-up techniques, the pop culture references and and the psychedelic touches make it a book that can be read forwards and back, to and from anywhere. Now who’s got the remote for that 400-channel Russian satellite dish?

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
Having made the international news in 2010 after publication of a new “politically correct” version of Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, in which the infamous and controversial “n-word” in Twain’s classic novel had been replaced with something less offensive to today’s sensibilities, now we get the full monty: business executive, former Deadhead and ’80s technologist Bradley J. Milton has gone far beyond a simple one-word search-and-replace.
