AAMBC New Book Release
Buffalo City Czar by James Scott
The phone rang, but neither of them had heard it. They were too engrossed in each other to hear anything but the waves of the ocean.
Mrs. Jones smiled back and raised her glass. They crossed their arms and stared into each other’s eyes.
“For better or worse,” he said to her.
“Until death do us apart.”
They both downed their glasses of Dom Perignon Oenotheque, and then embraced for a long juicy kiss.
Mr. Jones was the first to break away. “I have something for you.” He was excited, and then said, “Have a seat, I’ll be right back.”
He hurried to the master bedroom to retrieve his wife’s surprise from his luggage. He tossed the designer suitcase on the bed and unzipped it. That was their last night at the hotel before they left for the Caribbean Islands, so most their clothing had been packed away already.
Right where he had left it, on top of his clothes sat a rectangular shaped, black suede jewelry box. He proudly smiled, opened the box, and then inspected its contents. Satisfied, he closed the box and began zipping the suitcase when he suddenly remembered the kilo of coke he had ingeniously disguised at the bottom of his luggage. He pushed his clothes aside and quickly grabbed the coke that he had poured into a Johnson and Johnson baby powder container. He popped the cap of the container then expertly stuck his long nailed pinky finger inside of the container. He scooped up a hefty mound of the raw Peruvian flake and deeply inhaled the white powder. Damn, this shit is good, he thought, and then did the same to the other nostril. He almost choked as he was interrupted in the middle of taking another hit.
“Babe, what’s taking you so long?” The new bride grew impatient and yelled from the living room.
In a strained voice, he answered, “Just hold your horses’ baby. I’ll be there in a second.”
Meet the Author, James Scott:
relive his life through different circumstances. After enrolling into ITT-Technical school majoring in information technology, James began following his dreams of writing. He hopes to entertain the world with the tales of the dark side. Today, he resides in Atlanta, Georgia a proud father of two of Gods most precious gifts.
2)Tell us about some of your favorite authors that inspired you?
Harold Robins, Sidney Sheldon, Iceberg Slim, and Donald Goines an others inspired me. Those were some of the first books that I began reading in prison. I was so fascinated by the stories that I read that I began reading all kinds of books. Tom Clancy, Eric Jerome Dickey, Annie Rice, and James Patterson. James Patterson was the author that had the most influence on my wanting to write. The way that he puts together a mystery plot had me up late nights wanting to know what happened next.
3) What is a typical day like for you?
(laughter) That’s funny, because if my readers actually knew what a typical day was like for me they would be surprised. However, after work each day, I come home and workout in my gym for 30 to 45 minutes. It relieves the stress from my job and puts my brain at ease. After taking care of my bodily grooming, I eat and pick up where I last left off with my writing. My mood depends on how much time I put into my work.
4) Does your novel Buffalo City Czar have any special connection to your real life or your past?
Absolutely, it’s very much connected to my past. I don’t want to get into details, but, although my novel is a book of fiction, I wrote it based on real life experiences.
5) Tell us your favorite character in Buffalo City Czar and why we should love or love to hate them?
My favorite character is Mike. You got to love him; a little tough man with a short man complex. Knowing his childhood you can’t help but to have sympathy for him. But then you fall in love with his swagger and begin to respect his gangster. When he begins to fall off, because of the death of his woman, it’ll make you want to see him get his shit together. Nevertheless, you would never expect for Mike to make the last move he makes.
6) What plans do you have for marketing and promoting yourself and your brand to readers?
I plan to market myself by any means necessary: internet, bookstores, libraries, book signings, radio.
7) Do you have any plans on publishing any other novels? If so, tell us a little about them.
Yes, as a matter of fact, I have several manuscripts that I plan to publish. God willing, my next novel is about the con game, a mystery/romance novel. Also, I have an erotica, a murder-mystery, and an uncensored autobiography about my life. I am 46-years-young and have experienced a side of life that the average 46-year-old would have never survived. I give all praises to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My life was spared in order for me to share my life with the world.
