Author Extra: Take it Slow by AKM Miles

Take it Slow by AKM Miles

When Daniel Webster returns to Nashville after two years of hell, he doesn’t
go back to his dad’s house. After an amazing rescue he ends up at Mama
Sasy’s diner and finds out that it’s a safe place for young gay guys in
trouble. He certainly fits that bill.

Daniel has problems mentally and physically after all he’s been through, and
it’s going to take a lot to get him back to any form of normal. He finds a
great ally in Benny Adams and they begin a relationship. He’s so thankful
for Benny, but why can’t he embrace Mama Sasy and her group of happy helpers
who throw love at him left and right? Maybe because she’s so close to his
dad, the one Daniel ran away from two years ago because he was so cruel upon
hearing that Daniel thought he was gay. Benny makes him believe in love, and
the broad spectrum of characters at Mama Sasy’s eventually make their way
into his heart. As time moves forward, Daniel gets an idea about what he
wants to do with his life. Benny helps him and they set forth a bold plan. 
It’s gonna get better, but he’s got to get them all to understand that he
needs to take it slow.

Author Extra:

I started this series because I’ve heard my brother talk so often about the
life of truckers. He’s done just about everything from driving, to dispatch,
to shop managing and knows it all. It’s very interesting and much more
involved than I’d thought. I learned more while writing Take It EASY. I
liked the side characters so much that I wanted to do more with them. Well,
and there was the fact that Easy and Mano thought they’d seen Daniel, Nick’s
son, and people wanted to know if anyone saved him. Oh, yeah. And it was
cool.

Mama Sasy’s is fictional, but how badly do we need places like this these
days? That’s a place where young gay guys go when they’re hurt, lost,
afraid, or just need a helping hand. They find what they need and fill these
books with their varied stories. I’m sure there are such places and people
just like Mama, Boddy, and Easy.

I like stories like this that have a setting, like Mama Sasy’s, where more
books could come along. There could be more with characters who need help
and nurturing and love and direction. They’d certainly find all those things
at Mama Sasy’s. They’d probably see Daniel, Benny, Nick, Easy, and Mano,
too.

I hope you like Daniel and Benny’s story and enjoyed seeing how the other
characters are progressing. Let me know. As always, I love to hear from
readers.
