Celebrate Your Name Week with A.J. Best & a FREE Romance!

Coffee with ColetteGood morning, dear readers!  
Do you have a unique name? Have you ever given someone a unique name?
This is "Celebrate Your Name" week, and today I am joined for Coffee by fellow Secret Cravings Publishing author A.J. Best. She has dropped by to tell you about how she chose the not-so-unique names in her heart-wrenching romance, Forgiveness. (I understand that: I named the two main characters in All My Tomorrows "Alice" and "Peter" - Well, actually my husband did!) 
Plus A.J. has her novella available for you for FREE this week! Now that's a way to celebrate, and I know you won't want to miss it - you would never be able to forgive yourself!

This week is celebrate your name week. Today specifically is Unique Names Day. Which got me to thinking about the names in my book Forgiveness. There really isn't anything unique about these names, so why did I pick them?

Our beloved though a little neurotic heroine is Mary. Having never really looked up names and just let the first name that pops into my head be 'the one', I'd have to say that her name is a little spot on.

Mary: Hebrew baby name. Meaning wished for child; rebellion; bitter.

Unfortunately Mary is a little bitter. Her mother just died and she found out some information that she really wasn't ready to know. Then her husband starts acting a little squirrelly and Mary takes that bitterness, and deflects it to him.

Joe, the good natured well-meaning hero. After looking up his name, I think it might fit pretty well also.

Joe: English baby name. Meaning God will increase.

Trying to make their ten year anniversary a great one, Joe decides to take on something a little sneaky and underhanded. But Joe doesn't understand that it is a little underhanded because there's not a mean bone in his body. He's a lousy liar and just may have been caught in the mistake of a lifetime! Will he pay for his misdeeds or will he be given Forgiveness?

If you'd like to get to know Mary and Joe a little better my book Forgiveness is up for FREE right now on Secret Cravings Publishing store right now. http://store.secretcravingspublishing.com/index.php?main_page=book_info&cPath=4&products_id=355

 Excerpt from Forgiveness


“I’m a naughty, naughty girl,” she cooed. Her eyes were teasing him when she sauntered into the room wearing a skin-tight white corset and a silky white barely-there thong. She chewed her bottom lip playfully in anticipation of his reaction to the outfit she had purchased the night before. The corset caressed the curve of her slender sun-kissed waist. The white lacy fabric and silk ties enhanced the olive tone of her skin.

She became annoyed by his terse response, “Uh huh.” She watched him slide on his freshly laundered slacks. His inattention made her want to throw a lamp at him. “I’m sure you were fine.” She watched him absentmindedly scoop the loose change from the top of the mahogany dresser and drop it into a nearby bowl. She wondered if he had even heard a word she’d said. “Okay, I have some errands to run. Call me on my cell if you need me.”

“Did you hear what I said?” she exhaled. She clenched her teeth and pushed her fingernails further into the flesh of her hands.

“Yeah, kids are bad. You chastised them and all is well.” His lips barely grazed her cheek when he passed her and headed out the door. She watched him put on his gold Rolex as he sauntered down the hall. The Rolex flashed golden in the sunlight, as bright as any hope she had for their future.
