Sponsored Exclusive Giveaway and Interview: Inches Aren’t Everything by Sarah B. Daniels

Inches Aren’t Everything by Sarah B. Daniels
An intriguing and sexy romance novel set around the fitness industry, Inches Aren’t Everything will keep the reader engaged on a flight, on the beach, or even during a little “me time” at home.
BMC owner, Zack Johnston is not happy. Though he’s poured his life and soul into his fitness company, he’s struggling against an irate business partner, a lack of sales, and trainers who either sleep with their clients, take work on the side, or have far too many personal issues to concentrate on their work. Then there’s Orlanda Kennedy, the sensual young woman who sees the world as her own private chess game. With a chip on her shoulder and men melting in her hands, Orlanda has aspirations far and beyond everyone at BMC, and she’s ready to crush them all under her heel. She’s the silent enemy, the snake in the grass, and now she’s ready to pounce.
Only Keith Langley, Zack’s right hand man can be trusted. Even he seems to be losing his grip. Into Zack’s life comes Leena Ryan; a beautiful and confident woman dressed in red, who won’t take no for an answer. Leena is about to push Zack into a whole new world of action, which causes Zack to question everything.
Keith is the natural leader, a squeaky clean all-American trainer who runs the corporate accounts, but ends up healing and managing a high profile star tennis player whose secret sexuality and promiscuous behavior threatens the million-dollar sponsorship that the Tennis Association relies on. Burned out rock stars, luscious twin sister trainers, clients who tempt, trainers who accept, and demanding corporate clients round out the roster of characters who romp, play, scheme and love in this page turner of a popular fiction paper back.

“If you think the world of fitness and personal trainers is all about sit-ups, crunches, and sweating on a treadmill–think again! Inches Aren’t Everything is a sexy and exuberant romp through the boardrooms and the bedrooms of some very intriguing people. If you like working out with a good read, minus the sweat, then this is the book for you. I loved it!”
– S.P. Hozy, author of A Cold Season in Shanghai and The Scarlet Macaw

Sarah B Daniels is a nom-de-plume and she has ratcheted the tension for her sexiest novel yet. A clinical counselor for over 35 years, she uses the stories she lived through to flesh out her sexy romance novels into realistic page-turners.

The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.- Fun, sexy page turner about the fitness industry, trainers, clients, rock stars and sports stars. On the treadmill and between the sheets.

How did you get the idea for the story?- From my years as a counselor and therapist, I hear so many stories... it's amazing how complicated people make their lives.  Plus the stories I heard from my personal trainers over the years. 
--Which character would you most/least like to have dinner with? Orlanda, she's such a complex powerful yet vulnerable woman, it would be fascinating to spend time with her and learn about the ICHI game that is central to her life and character.

--Do you have any other works in progress? Any teasers or release dates?
Yes, I have another novel, working title - Behind Closed Doors - the first of a series of novels about an apartment building and the people who live there, make love there, and leave there.
Every apartment contains its own story. The people within the walls most often stay separate- except for careful interaction in the elevator or between loading and unloading the laundry machines.  But sometimes something happens that brings them together.  A crisis of mind and body. And when this happens, the most surprising people step forward to be counted.  And healing happens on many levels.
--What book(s) is your book’s “cousin”? (Similar kind of read, set-up or style)   
Debbie Macomber books, in that my novels are interactive with very human stories, showing foibles, strength and redemption.  However Sarah B Daniels's books contain more sex in their romance, more heat in the interactions between characters.
--What are some of your favorite books? Do you still have much time to read?  I make time.
Anything by Dylan  Thomas _ I'm currently re-reading his Small boy's Christmas in Wales.
The Four Agreements - I carry the flyleaf around with me in my wallet - it keeps me true to myself and my world.

--If a fairy godmother told you could be put into the world of your favorite book for 24 hours, which book would you pick and why?  West With the Night by Beryl Markham, I visited Kenya once and loved it... It has changed since this book was written... but I would like to be there at that time.

--Do you need anything to write (music, coffee, etc)? Are there any songs on your playlist- songs that inspired you or that were playing while you wrote?  Cool jazz.  Mint tea and a promise of a meet up with a friend later in the day to get me away from the computer!

--If you could have any superpower what would you choose? A harmony wand.  Wave it where ever there is tension, hatred, bigotry and fighting.

--Besides writing, what do you like to do in your free time?  Theatre LOVE going to the theatre with friends, walk and talk and coffee. Plus I'm an animal activist and am involved in community work at different levels.
--What is one thing you would tell your 15 year old self?  Know that you can - don't let anyone rain on your parade!  Operate from a platform of kindness for yourself and others.

--Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?  Don't forget to make time for fun!
