Promo ~ Have I told you ~ F.L. Jacob ~ Indie Author Event


Caston Black has it all, according to the outside world. The owner of the best-selling gentlemen’s magazine, Black Hollywood, has good looks, fame, fortune, and a reputation that precedes him. He can have any woman he wants, as long as he doesn’t keep them. Caston sets his sights on Sabrina for his next Hollywood Sweetheart. Little does he know he will find the woman to share his life, the one he is meant to keep forever.

Sabrina Bennett has been in a mentally and physically abusive relationship that has destroyed the beautiful, confident dancer who arrived at college three years ago. She thinks the only good thing left in her life is her abusive boyfriend. Keeping her boyfriend happy is her number one priority, no matter how impossible. She’s been broken and molded into a frightened, unsure girl desperate to be worthy of love. 

Meeting by chance one evening, sparks fly between Caston and Sabrina. Neither expected the feelings they bring out in each other. Trying to have a normal relationship in their abnormal world is almost impossible, happiness is a new way of life for the lovers. They want to move forward, but the past won’t let go. 

Can Caston help Sabrina heal from her past abuse? Can Sabrina show Caston he is as strong as he appears to be? When is the price of love too much? What do you do when the biggest threat to the person you love is you? 


Caston snuck up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist.  “What are you thinking about?”

I snuggle into him.  Finally, looking up at him, his eyes melt my insides.  I turn around in his arms and slide my arms around his neck still holding onto my flip flops.  Leaning up on my toes I kiss his soft lips.  “You’re my world.  I’m so thankful you came into my life.” 

My lips find his again, and we’re lost in each other.  When we finally separate, I notice the candles and the blanket in the middle of the opening.  The food is sitting on the blanket with an open bottle of wine.  My mouth dropped open in shock.  “You got all of this at the little cafĂ©?”

“What can I say, I can be very persuasive,” he winked and took my hand to walk me over to the blanket. 

Helping me sit down he sat across from me.  He unbuttoned his shirt just enough to make my heart race.  I could not take my eyes off his forearms when he poured the wine for us.

Author Bio

I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full time employee. Life is crazy and my love for reading had fizzled over the years but thanks to a wonderful group of ladies that I met last year I started reading again. Their love for books turned me on to many great writers who I would have never discovered if I hadn't started reading again! 

I started writing for them. They brought out my love for writing that I haven’t seen in years. Starting this process was tedious and nerve wrecking, but my lovely ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.

Author Interview:

Hi F.L Jacob,

Thank you for taking part in this interview. We are excited to finally talk with you.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?  I’m a mom of two beautiful girls, a wife to an amazing man, a full time employee, and a writer.  Basically I have four full time jobs.  I’m an introvert and very quiet.

What inspired you to start writing and publish your first book?  Last year I started reading again and became a crazy reader.  I would get awful book hangovers and sought out a group that could relate.  Long story short, I started writing for the girls in that group.  I would put the story one chapter at a time on a blog and post the link for them.  After a few months and many messages later with questions if I was going to make it into a book, I decided to do some research into self-publishing.  I talked with my husband and the rest is history.

What was the hardest part of writing “Have I Told You”?  The hardest part was adapting the blog and making it into a book.  I had to go back and basically rewrite the entire first part and expand it. 

Did you enjoy your research? What type of research did you have to do?  I don’t mind research. Sometimes I tell my hubby what I need and he goes to find the information.  For the sexy parts, well I’m going to plead the fifth.

How long did it take you to finish Have I Told You?  Well, technically, it took me ten months if you start counting from when I started the blog.  If you start counting from when I decided to move the blog to a book, it would be four months.

Will there be a second book? Yes, there is a cliffhanger.  I’m sorry.  J  I could have left the book at a happily ever after but there was so much more to Caston and Sabrina’s story. 

If so when should we expect it to be released?  It is already started and I am shooting for the first part of 2014.  I don’t have an exact date yet.

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?  I learned that having four full time jobs is insane.  HA!  I also learned that the indie author community is very tight knit and supportive.  Without the help of a few fellow authors I probably wouldn’t be here now.

What do you use to write your books?  Have I Told You was almost completely written on my iPad.  I got a new laptop for my birthday and I use it now.  It goes with me everywhere. 

Do you listen to music while writing or reading?  If I’m home alone, I have music on.  Most nights I write downstairs while my husband watches television, so that is my background noise.

Who designed your cover?  My cover was photographed and designed by Digital Mitchell Photography.  We had so much fun at the photo shoot.  I can’t wait to work with them again!

When can we expect to see your next book cover?  I’m hoping soon.  I am still figuring out what I want to do for it.  I have an amazing idea, but it would give away the ending of book two and that wouldn’t be cool.  J

What are you currently reading?  I am currently reading Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

If you could write with another author who would it be?  Nicole Edwards or Kendall Grey.  I have great respect for their work and they have both been extremely helpful through my journey. 

Do you have a nickname?  Faline 

Do you ever write naked?  No, I can’t say that I’ve ever written naked.  Well, wait, maybe I have.  I think other authors can testify that showers can give you clarity on tough parts or give you new ideas, so I guess if you count the times I rush out of a shower to write down my thoughts, then yes I have written naked.

Coffee or tea?  Yuck, neither.  Give me a diet coke and I’m a happy camper. 

Where do you come up with your ideas for your stories?  I have a very wild imagination.  Some things are pulled from real life, but twisted to accommodate the story line.  Pictures and objects sometimes speak to me too.

Do you draw on personal experiences for your writing or purely imagination?  Imagination and dreams.  Personal experiences… Once again I’m going to plead the fifth.  I have to keep a little mystery about myself. 

What’s your ideal vacation?  Sun, sand, and a drink in my hand.

Where is your favorite place to write/read? I write where I can in the house.  I don’t have a writing cave.  I wish I did but the good thing about a laptop is it can go anywhere.  Same goes for reading.  I have a kindle but I prefer to read on my phone.  Why, because it is with me all the time so I can read anywhere.

Where can readers find out more about you and your work?  My facebook page,  They can also friend request me.
