Jason’s got it all: beautiful women, fast cars and piles of cash. With a job that literally keeps him up all night, this Channing Tatum lookalike is living the X-rated Hollywood dream. Any twenty-two-year-old guy would jump at the chance to star in Jason’s life…except Jason.
All in one night, Jason became a father and lost the love of his life. Vickie, his chocolate princess, isn’t looking down from heaven with pride, though. What started as an unconventional way to pay the bills has devolved into an obsession and an escape from crippling guilt.
Raising twins alone is a full-time job, but with no other options, Jason doesn’t have a lot of time to look for a way out. Yet it all comes crashing down one night when the sometimes dangerous, addictive world of porn collides with the pressures of fatherhood. As Jason’s dreams spin out of control, he’ll have to make some changes in his life or risk losing everything he’s already sold his body to hold onto.
Filled with steamy sex, intense drama and the dilemmas of a doting dad, 12 Hours of Daylight: A Jason Jules Novella is the literary fusion of Boogie Nights, Mr. Mom and Family Business.
Tameka Mullins is a Detroit, Michigan native, poet, blogger and digital marketer who loves pop culture and traveling to exotic locations. Her writing has been highlighted on NPR and in countless women’s periodicals and e-publications. She’s worked at The Girl Scouts of the USA, WCBS Radio and Newsweek. Her short story, ‘Empty Lens’ is also being featured in the ‘Welcome Home’ YA anthology that is set for publication in September 2017. She currently lives in New York City.
Here, we get some insight into how Jason feels about his work and how it allows him to escape. I wonder if a lot of others who work regular jobs might feel the same.
12 Hours of Daylight - a Jason Jules Novella
It amazes me how fast a meaningless, empty space can be arranged and staged to become something that teems with life and activity. It’s kind of how I feel everyday before I lose myself in my work. On the surface, I’m handsome, muscular and tall, with a magnetic personality; on the inside, I’m a shell, hollowed out by life. But when I step into this transformed space, I can become anyone and be transported anywhere.
