LJ GARLAND: Hey! Today Garland & Gould talk about G-Spots. Do you know where your G-Spot is, Debbie?
DEBBIE GOULD: Wait…I thought we were going to be talking about writing.
LJ GARLAND: We are. Why?
DEBBIE GOULD: Well…you’re talking about G-Spots. Um, I’m not sure that fits the bill here.
LJ GARLAND: What do you mean?
DEBBIE GOULD: Well, aren’t G-Spots um…a special place?
LJ GARLAND: Absolutely!
DEBBIE GOULD: Is this something we should be talking about, I mean publicly?
LJ GARLAND: Sure! Why not? Every author should know where his or her G-Spot is.
DEBBIE GOULD: Umm…
LJ GARLAND: You can find your G-Spot anywhere, anytime. You can find it while in a chair, out on the back porch, on the beach, at a desk. Well, I’ll be honest here, once I found my G-Spot in the front seat of a Chevy Tahoe. It was very interesting.
DEBBIE GOULD: I bet.
LJ GARLAND: Actually, I found another G-Spot while we wrote, In My Sights.
DEBBIE GOULD: You did?
LJ GARLAND: Yep. I realized I’d found it on my couch while listening to music. Hmm…I think I was listening to Daughtry’s It Ain’t Over.
DEBBIE GOULD: Okay, Laura, you really need to explain yourself. What does this have to do with writing?
LJ GARLAND: It has everything to do with writing. Your G-Spot is the place where you write best…your groove spot.
DEBBIE GOULD: Your groove spot?
LJ GARLAND: Yeah. The place where you’re most prolific with your words.
DEBBIE GOULD: Ohhh… I thought, um, never mind.
LJ GARLAND: LOL So where is your G-Spot? Have you found it?
DEBBIE GOULD: Hmmm. The groove spot? Yes. The other, quite frequently recently.
LJ GARLAND: Try to focus, honey.
DEBBIE GOULD: I’m trying. Okay, my GROOVE spot? Mainly, I just have to force myself to sit down and write. Once I get going, the words start flowing. It’s the getting started that slows me down. Music helps to motivate me.
LJ GARLAND: Oh yeah! Music really gets me going. Puts me in the mood for whatever scene I’m writing at the time. My current G-Spot is the hottest when I’m on the couch…but I’ve used the bed, too. How about you? Where did you discover your G-Spot while writing In My Sights?
DEBBIE GOULD: LMAO! The bed, definitely! Have laptop will write.
LJ GARLAND: You know, the G-Spot is all about feeling good, finding that place that gets your juices flowing.
DEBBIE GOULD: And then some, lol. You have to be where you are most comfy, relax and just let it happen.
LJ GARLAND: Exactly!
DEBBIE GOULD: So, now that ya’ll know what Laura is talking about, where is your G-spot?
LJ GARLAND: Oh yeah! Share the deets. Inquiring minds want to know.
“Look, I’m not gonna lie to you.” He loosened his hold on her while he perused her face, settling on her mouth. “I wasn’t sure about this one-night thing to start with, but after seeing you…well, I can definitely follow through. No problem.” He shifted his attention to her eyes, the naked heat swirling in his baby blues causing her breath to catch. “But after what all you told me, I want you to know I get it. We can play this thing any way you want. Fast. Slow. Or I can just hold you.” He trailed his fingers up and down her arms, sending delicious tingles along her skin. “Though I’ll admit, that’s not my first choice.”
She stared at him. God, he was such a gentleman. Without hesitating, she lifted onto her toes, wrapped her arms around his neck, crushed her mouth against his, and…holy crap, what a kiss! Her pulse jumped, her head spun. A fire sparked deep inside her, and her breath caught at the passion winding through her. She didn’t know what she’d been expecting exactly, but not anything like this.
Before she melted into a puddle at his feet, she broke the kiss and gazed up at him. “Does that answer your question?”
A sexy grin curved his lips. “Yes, ma’am.”

L. J. Garland
Though born and raised in the south, L.J. Garland has lived on both the east and west coasts. She adores traveling, the latest adventures added to her Bucket List: Machu Pichu and Australia’s Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef.
Married to her best friend for over twenty years, she spends her time home schooling three rambunctious boys, editing in the epub industry, and writing stories that she hopes catches her readers’ imaginations as much as the characters and plotlines captivate her. In her spare time (what there is of it LOL), she has a multitude of hobbies, including building archery equipment from scratch and creating stained glass. She has a passion for anything that goes Boom! …from fireworks to high-powered combat rifles…it’s all good. She and her husband are both rated helicopter pilots and spent their 10thanniversary flying cross-country from east to west coast…an adventure she highly recommends.
A member of RWA, she has several published books, including Cadence Interrupted, On the Fringes, Dreamspell Revenge Anthology, and MechMan, she’s now teamed up with Debbie Gould. Having complete one manuscript, Sins of the Mind, they are hard at work, brainstorming and writing the creative new Sentinel Series.
Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, at the age of two Debbie and her mother moved to New Jersey, spending many happy years on her grandparents’ horse farm. You’ll sometimes find this setting as a backdrop in her work.
As a teenager, she and her mother found a new home in Vermont, where she currently resides. With a daughter in the Air Force (along with Debbie’s six-year-old grandson), and two sons working for the family Well Drilling business, Debbie now shuffles her time between a full time job as a nurse and her writing career.
About seven years ago, while looking at over three hundred treasured books lining her shelves, she realized there was a multitude of stories of her own clamoring for release. Since then, she’s seriously persevered in keeping the keyboard in constant motion.
With three published books complete, Mountain’s Echo and Infidelity, and November Rain, Debbie is now working with a partner, L.J. Garland. Together, they have finished one manuscript, Sins Of the Mind, and are now working on their Sentinel Series.
Debbie has been a member of KOD, FTHRW, ELEMENTS and RWA Online.
