Music Monday-Deeper Than Perfect

Don’t fear the Monday Blues, music and book talk to the rescue!

Today let’s welcome Afton Locke with the book Deeper Than Perfect.

In my latest release, Deeper Than Perfect, Desiree the heroine goes back in time to 1974 to fall in love with an R&B superstar. I think musicians are hot!

Watch the Book Trailer:


Wake up and Live – Bob Marley

This song and musician are the inspiration and theme of the book. I played it over and over when writing the grand finale.

I Was Made For You – Aretha Franklin

Watching this makes me feel we are meant for one person only, even if that person is in a different plane or time.

More Than a Woman – Tavares

The 70s are known for great dancing. There’s a scene in the story where the couple does some crazy dancing in the house on the spur of the moment.

You’re Beside Me – The Isley Brothers

I played the Isley Brothers a lot while writing the book because they personify 70s romance. This song says a couple can be together even when not physically in the same place.

Distant Lover – Marvin Gaye

With time travel, the threat of separation always hangs over a couple’s head. Knowing one person could travel away in time makes loving moments especially poignant.


Desi Warner is ready to end her life after an accident disfigures her face and destroys her modeling career. Instead, she goes back in time to 1974 to meet her destiny—R&B superstar Bernie Benson. Although her scars vanish, she and Bernie only have one month before a car accident will supposedly claim their lives.

The enigmatic singer ignites her senses, but her restored beauty is an illusion she can’t trust. Abandoned by his mother in childhood, Bernie has his own trust issues. Obsessed with completing his album, he’s just as hooked on his perfect singing career as Desi is to modeling.

Although they open each other’s eyes to different paths, change is not easy. When the fated day of the crash arrives, they must choose between life and perfection. A love that is deeper than perfect may be their only key to survival.

Where readers can find me

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
