Book synopsis
Don’t say you do if you don't
Chris Jordan has been married to his loving wife Emily for ten years, and they have three children together. He seems to have the perfect life until he becomes attracted to a businesswoman name Tiffany. Tiffany is just in town for business, but when sparks fly between her and Chris, she considers staying a little longer than she planned. Chris soon struggles with making the choice of staying with his stable family life or risk losing it all in order to be with Tiffany. Meanwhile, Tiffany's past may come back to haunt her as there's someone lurking in the shadows that wants her dead. 

Don't Say You Do If You Don't by Charles Burgess is a unique twist on the classic adultery tale. What made this story different was the fact that Chris didn't really have a real reason to step outside of his marriage. He seemed to have a perfect life and his wandering eye got the best of him. This book is the perfect example of how the grass is not always greener on the other side. It also shows that you should take your marriage vows seriously. Burgess also did a good job of incorporating Tiffany's dubious past into this story. Don't Say You Do If You Don't is a fast-paced novel full of life lessons

Book Titles

What made you decide to become an author?
Deciding to become an author-The reason i decided to write, I once played around with a story titled Time out for justice and had people and friends in my neighborhood read the hand written manuscript they loved it and pushed me to finish it, I felt that if I could please people with that story I could do it on another level.

What do you enjoy most about being an author?
What i enjoy most about being an author-having people read and enjoy the stories i create from my imagination, the feedback and compliments, I also love to lose myself in the writing, those times where it takes me to another place, those are great times.

If you could meet one author, who would it be?
If I could meet one author would it be-Sidney Sheldon.

How are you giving back to the literary community?
I started a publishing company titled Underground Publications, this company was started when i realize that 90% of the self-publishing companies prey upon first time authors, my services allow first time authors and also already published authors to afford to print their manuscripts and retain almost all the profit from their work.

Give one tip you would give new authors.
When investing in yourself do your research

What is the biggest lesson you have learned since becoming an author?
You will never please everybody

What’s the one thing that irks you about the literary industry?
When people don't take the time to learn better, so they can do better
