“Oh the Tangled Webs we weave…” with S.A. Ozment – Post + Giveaway

Oh the (1)

Hi Everyone!

I’m S.A. Ozment and I want to introduce my new novella that will be released by DSP on May 18th. It tells the story of a young guy, “Ashley Stevens”, who is an ER nurse by day and a fan boy by night. However, the only object of his affection is the smokin’ hot and extremely talented “Sebastian Gray”.  One night while Ashley is online, Sebastian reaches out to Ashley and thanks him for a job well done. Ashley is in full blown “OMG, I’m talking to Sebastian Gray” and “I’ve drank an entire bottle of wine” mode and fumbles his way through the conversation. Things are going great until Sebastian makes it clear that he believes he is speaking to a “girl” named Ashley.  After a minute of contemplating, Ashley decides to let Sebastian think what he wants as long as the conversation continues.  A few months later the conversation is still continuing and Ashley still has not told Sebastian the truth out of fear of losing what he has gained with his long time idol, who is now his friend.

As a thank you, Sebastian surprises Ashley with a free airline ticket to NYC to attend a fan gathering and then they can enjoy the city together. Ashley tries to get out of the meeting but Sebastian is not taking no for an answer.  Ashley gives in and says yes, knowing that he will have to come clean. I won’t say how the meeting goes but let’s just say Ashley is not the only one keeping secrets.

I originally wrote this story as a submission for the “Star Struck” Anthology. However, to tell the story, it was over the amount of words needed. Therefore, I submitted to DSP as a novella. The story idea came to me while watching the television show “Catfish”. I thought about how I could have two characters innocently catfish each other and still have a happy ending.   I didn’t want a mean spirited catfish story, just a sweet story where the two men didn’t set out to catfish each other, it just kind of happens.  With those thoughts in mind, “Tangled Web” was born.

Have you ever been infatuated with a celebrity and finally had the opportunity to meet them?  Is there a celebrity that you would love to be real friends with? Leave a comment below and tell me your story.  I will pick one winner  (in 3 days) and will send you a copy of my first book, “Illusions” by PDF format.

Hope to hear from you all!

Blurb:

By day Ashley Stevens is a dedicated nurse; by night he runs multiple social media sites for his crush and all-time favorite actor, Sebastian Gray. After a particularly grueling day at work, Ashley drinks away his misery while dreaming about being with Sebastian—only to realize it’s no dream when Sebastian actually contacts him.

Sebastian asks him to officially run his sites and Ashley is thrilled—right up until Sebastian makes it clear that he thinks Ashley is a girl. And maybe it’s the wine, or maybe it’s a fear that if Sebastian knew the truth, he wouldn’t want him, but Ashley never sets him straight. But keeping the secret becomes a nightmare as Ashley and Sebastian talk online night after night, forging a true connection. And the longer Ashley waits to tell the truth, the more tangled the lies become.

A plane ticket from Sebastian along with an invitation to meet in New York City for a fan event brings it all to a head. Ashley must face Sebastian and tell all, but he might not be the only one keeping secrets.

    Well, I once met Johnny Cash, but I didn’t have a crush on him, so I guess that doesn’t count lol I would love to be good friends with Geoffrey Zakarian, Iron Chef. He’s not just handsome and extremely talented, he’s a very intelligent, classy man. I think we could be friends. Not that it will ever happen lol

    Good luck, and thanks for the opportunity. Your new book sounds awesome!

    Congrats on your new book release. It sounds like fun read.

    I don’t really pay too much attention to actors/actresses outside of movies and TV shows. I watch a lot of Criminal Minds so I guess if I had the chance I’ll like to meet Matthew Grey Gubler.
