Saving Destiny's Moments!

We all have a story, made up of many chapters; chapters from our pasts, and chapters yet to be written. Even if we think we know our own story, sometimes our paths go astray --- sometimes they are destined to intertwine with those around us. These new chapters may or may not end well, either way, it’s our story. So what do you do when your story starts spinning out of control? Alone and scared, Destinee Fairchild will crash her way into Jaxon McCall’s world. Will he be able to convince her that there is a happily ever after out there for everyone, or will his playboy ways prove to her that happiness is just a fairy tale?

Q & A with Christine Dawn about 
Saving Destiny's Moments!

Tell us about Saving Destiny’s Moments.

This is a story about a girl named Destinee who is down on her luck ready to give up on life. She has lost everything and everyone that mattered to her. When she is finally ready to give up her life changes forever. After surviving another horrible event she is determined to change her life around, and that starts with paying back every penny to the famous baseball player Jaxon McCall. After agreeing to work with him as his personal assistant she tempted in new and amazing ways. However, there are challenges out there trying to destroy their Destiny.

What initially inspired you to write Saving Destiny’s Moments?

I personally have always wanted to write but it wasn’t until I got together with my counterpart Dawn that I knew we could really do this. We laugh all the time about how I am a little bit Disney in my writing style and she is a little bit 50 shades. The combination of the two of us brought them to life. We spent many days and nights talking about these characters. After a year passed we finally brought them to life in a story we are very proud of.

Tell us little about the characters in Saving Destiny’s Moments.

Destinee Fairchild is stronger than she thinks. She is smart and caring. She has had a rough life with huge losses, but when presented with a challenge she tackles it head on.

Jaxon McCall is a famous baseball player. He devotes his time to making sure he makes a difference in this world. He is a player both on and off the field until he meets a woman who flips his world upside down.

Angela is Jaxon’s long time girlfriend. She is a horrible person who only looks out for herself. She is not happy with his new assistant and isn’t afraid to let her know it.

Harley is a bar owner who quickly names herself Destinee’s best friend. She makes her smile and tells it like it is. Everyone needs a Harley in their lives.

What was the hardest part of writing this book?

The hardest part was making sure Destinee grew in an honest and true way. We wanted the readers to see where she came from and how she grew and developed. This is our first book. So that in itself was hard and stressful. Hoping that the readers will love her and Jaxon as much as we do.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
My personal favorite part is the twist. I loved writing the twist. To me it’s the most intense scenes in the book. I don’t want to say to much so that I don’t give it away but I can say Destinee is a really strong woman to make it through this.

What are your future project(s)?

Right now we are working on a new book call Girl Crush. We are very excited about this project and really hope to have it published this year.

Now an exciting excerpt from Saving Destiny's Moments!

This is it. The moment that I conclude, beyond all reasoning, that LIFE would be better without ME in it. I put the key in the ignition, turning the car on. I sit and listen as this pile of metal rev to life, and my mind wraps around the fact that mine is over.
 “You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago is playing on the radio. How ironic it is to hear your parents’ wedding song at the very moment you are about to join them. Like my name, Destinee, I can’t help but wonder if this is mine. Having the very song that meant so much to them come on the radio, at this moment, has to be a sign that I am making the right decision. I am suddenly calm for the first time in ages, happy almost. I guess what they say is true. Once your mind is made up everything else just falls into place, and a sense of peace engulfs you.
With this new sense of peace, I am able to see more clearly. As I drive, I notice how dark it is out here tonight. The only lights to be seen are from the street lamps lining this road. It’s a curvy road, running the span of a mile, with street lights placed at every intersection. One side full of local hangouts and shopping centers, the other a slight hill lined with trees and bushes. There have been four fatal crashes along this stretch of road, all from cars going over the hillside. Although guard rails have been installed to help prevent future tragedies. They failed to prevent the fourth one from happening a mere 6 months ago, and I plan on making it a fifth time tonight.
 I shift the car into drive, imagining a better place; where this pain doesn’t exist, where memories can no longer haunt me. I imagine this place, where people no longer have the ability to hurt me. I drive toward the hill with no plans of stopping; my foot is to never touch the brake. I have already argued with myself that if my foot touched the brake –it must mean that I want to live. But, I’ve concluded that living is too unbearable to me. I am dead on the inside already and have been for a while. I accelerate, going faster and faster. I want this. I want to die. My thoughts flicker through memories and unreached dreams, and I feel the tears starting to well in my eyes.  I reach to the passenger seat for a tissue, refusing to shed another tear about this joke of a life. As I grab the tissue, my eyes go back to the road. In that moment I see headlights barreling towards me. Oh God! I don’t want to hit anyone. This isn’t supposed to happen. I want to end MY life not take someone else’s!
The car headed straight for me suddenly swerves, as if they are trying to avoid me. That’s when it happens. I feel as though I am moving in slow motion. Every sensation is like a freeze framed moment in time. The screeching of the tires is all I hear before I feel the cars collide.  I hear the glass shatter and the air bag deploy. I feel the momentum as the car goes through the guard rail, thrashing me from side to side while making its way down the hill.  I feel the car turn over not once, but twice. It’s like I am flying through space and I feel so weightless. Just as I begin to give in to this euphoria, I am forced to come crashing back down into the seat.  The car finally comes to a complete stop, halted by an enormous tree. The car is on its hood and I am hanging upside down. The only thing keeping me in this seat is the safety belt, that I must have put on by habit. The irony of me putting on my seatbelt to drive to my death doesn’t escape me, even at this defining moment in time. My face is bloody. I can feel it dripping from the tip of my nose. I know my arm is broken since I can’t move it. My legs are stuck under the mangled pile of metal. My head hurts! It hurts so badly. I slowly realize there is pain everywhere. Wait! This isn’t the peace I was looking for? Why am I still here?
I hear a commotion outside of my car. I desperately close my eyes, hoping that death reaches me soon. I try to let myself slip away. But I hear something else, something that refuses to let me go to that better place.
There is a strong deep voice telling me to hold on. But I don’t want to hold on anymore. I feel arms wrap around me and my eyes begin to flutter open.. “Stay with me”, he says. He himself is covered in blood. I can’t tell if it is his blood or mine.  I see pain wrenched in his eyes. He is stunning really. Like an angel of some sorts. His hair is black and the crimson color of blood.  His eyes are electric blue. He is franticly trying to release me from this death trap. I want to tell him no. I want to tell him this is what I want. I try to scream, No! No! Please don’t save me, I am not worth saving. My voice fails me. Everything just hurts so much. The noises that escape me are not words, they are garbled. Through my haze, he is talking to me. His voice has a calming effect on me and I feel somewhat entranced. “Stay calm” he says, “no need to talk, just stay calm”. These electric blue eyes are willing me to live. There is so much fear laced in those eyes. I’ve never seen such power in a pair of eyes before. He must be some sort of angel sent here for me. The pain is unreal. Every part of me hurts, and as he pulls to free me I feel pieces of metal digging into my abdomen. The pain causes me to repeatedly lose consciousness. But each time I open my eyes, I am met with those of blue.  Suddenly I feel as though I am floating. The angel’s voice is reminding me to hold on; telling me it’s not my time to go. Those are the last words I hear before I completely black out.
