Jaree Francis, author of There’s No Tomorrow, Only Today
Introducing Shawn Weston, an ambitious photographer who is focused on his career. That is until he’s blindsided by an uncanny woman by the name of Kanjia. The more he gets inside of her body, the more she gets inside of his soul.
Most would say that he’s way out of his league, but she thinks he’s just right. His boss thinks he’s dead wrong for slacking on his work performance. Shawn’s got much bigger problems than job security. They say all’s fair in love and war. Shawn Weston is about to find out just how true it is. To get out of the hole he has dug for himself, see how far he will go to get out.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write There’s No Tomorrow, Only Today?
Jaree Francis: I wrote this because I feel like people lose a grip of today for tomorrow. The tomorrow they anticipate may never come. This has been a year of death. People we never could imagine passing have passed. What we can do is embrace today more. This novella brings you into the mix of a love that is magnified substantially by living for the moment.
JP: What sets There’s No Tomorrow, Only Today apart from other novels in its genre?
JF: When I write, I try to give the reader an original experience. I bring them to the world in my mind. That, Mr. Pinkney, would be the defining difference between “this” and “that.”
JP: Why are you willing to give this novella away for free? Tell us more about this situation.
JF: I’m willing to give this novella away for free for a number of reasons. Three quick ones:
1) because I have no doubt that it’s a good read
2) I definitely would like feedback on what can make it ever better or what the reader wants to see more of, etc
3) we are still in a recession, so why not make something available for free?
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish There’s No Tomorrow, Only Today?
JF: My writing process varies for projects. For this project, I let the cage open. It’s somewhat erotic, so I just let it go. The time length to finish There’s No Tomorrow, Only Today is a hard question. It started as a short story I wrote last year. I felt that it had so much more to offer the readers. Based on that, I eventually extended it into a novella this year.
JP: What’s next for Jaree Francis?
JF: What’s next? I don’t know. There’s no tomorrow, only today. Remember? Ok, seriously, I’m just going to focus on putting out the best possible works to challenge the reader and fill the mind with food for thought. That’s the road I’m on.
