Blurb: When the older man starts frequenting the restaurant where Adam works, he doesn’t know what to think. Kent is everything that defines success and wealth. What could he possibly want with a college kid like Adam?

Kent, refusing to let Adam go, decides to find a way to make the younger man see his worth and their need to be together.
Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?
Thank you! I’m happy to be here. My most recent work is a M/M contemporary erotic short called What You See.
What is What You See all about?
You would think this is the easiest question to answer but it never is! The story centers on Adam and Kent, two men who are as opposite as anyone can be. Kent is an older professional gentleman; Adam is a college kid with a lot of ambition. Kent sees this ambition in Adam and is confident that he wants him but Adam doesn’t agree. Kent works to convince Adam that he’s wrong.
We read a lot of May/December romances involving m/f, how great that you've written a m/m! How did you come up with the idea?
Would you believe while sitting in sushi bar which is where What you See begins? A few months back I stopped in after work to pick up dinner. As I sat there and took in the atmosphere I thought what a lovely place to have a romantic liaison. Normally I wouldn’t frequent a place like that because it was a little pricey which was why I thought of Kent, who was in a position to go and have whatever he wanted.
I know this isn't your first published work, CJ, so tell the readers a little about your other works.
I have several other stories out. A M/F fantasy erotic short called Paint from Excessica Publishing as well as stories being featured in three anthologies presented by BetterSex.com. A story of mine, A Little Knowledge was recently chosen as a weekly winner in the BetterSex.com Erotic Fiction Contest. I also have a few free reads around published by Clean Sheets Magazine and Good Vibrations Magazine.
What can we expect from you in the future, CJ Black?
I have several story ideas in the works, including a contemporary erotic paranormal and another fantasy m/m erotic. Also, a little while ago, I finished a full-length fantasy m/m erotic novel. I put it aside for a bit because I was having some trouble getting it like I wanted but it’s been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve attempted in the past to find a critique partner for it because it needs work.
Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?You’re welcome. Yes, I want to say to my fellow authors, no matter what “writing defeats” you may encounter, keep going. Don’t lose your momentum. Write as often as you can, every free moment you can. That’s what you do.
