Trust the Focus: Megan Erickson Shares Exclusive Alternate POV Scene

Megan Erickson

Trust the Focus by Megan EricksonToday we're thrilled to have Megan Erickson here today to introduce a special scene from her book, Trust the Focus, which was released this past Tuesday. Sometimes characters' voices are too loud to be ignored. Megan is here today introduce and share the alternate POV scene from Trust the Focus! Thanks, Megan!

With his college graduation gown expertly pitched into the trash, Justin Akron is ready for the road trip he planned with his best friend Landry— and ready for one last summer of escape from his mother’s controlling grip. Climbing into the Winnebago his father left him, they set out across America in search of the sites his father had captured through the lens of his Nikon.

As an aspiring photographer, Justin can think of no better way to honor his father’s memory than to scatter his father’s ashes at the sites he held sacred. And there’s no one he’d rather share the experience with more than Landry.

But Justin knows he can’t escape forever. Eventually he’ll have to return home and join his mother’s Senate campaign. Nor can he escape the truth of who he is, and fact that he’s in love with his out-and-proud travel companion.

Admitting what he wants could hurt his mother’s conservative political career. But with every click of his shutter and every sprinkle of ash, Justin can’t resist Landry’s pull. And when the truth comes into focus, neither is prepared for the secrets the other is hiding.

Trust the Focus is told from Justin Akron’s POV—a twenty-two-year-old college graduate on a road trip with his best friend, Landry. When I was drafting this book, there was a pivotal scene that was giving me fits. I talked it over with my critique partner, Natalie Blitt, and she suggested, as an exercise, to write the scene from Landry’s POV. That way, the scene would ring true for Justin as well as Landry. It was a really great exercise, and I think this scene works better because of it.

Since the book is told from Justin’s POV, this scene wasn’t used in the final version. But thanks to Heroes and Heartbreakers, you have a chance to read it. Thanks H&H!

Without further ado, get a taste of Megan Erickson's Trust the Focus with an exclusive alternate point of view scene!

I leaned against the RV, my whole body vibrating with anger. I wanted to hop on a bus, get the fuck out of here and away from my best friend hurling that word at me.

The word. The one he knew better than to say. The word Justin had punched a guy for when he’d used it toward me.

Sweatpants Are the New Wranglers: Hot Heroes in Cotton

Make It Right by Megan EricksonToday we've asked author Megan Erickson to come talk about a very serious topic: Men wearing sweatpants. Megan's upcoming release, Make it Right, is a companion book to Make it Count. Both books are part of the Bowler University series, and Make it Right's hero, Max Payton, teaches a self-defense class, so of course he has to don casual, comfortable clothing to do so. Making the heroine (and us!) very happy indeed. Thanks, Megan!

Sweatpants.

On hot guys.

Are hot.

And I’m going to tell you why you need to join me over on the 100% cotton Dark Side. I know what you’re saying. “Ew, Megan. Sweatpants? I like worn jeans on my guy or nothing at all.”

I KNOW. But hear me out? Or actually, let me start with some visual inspiration:
