Indelibly Marked, #2
by Kim Carmichael
In a temporary world only tattoos are permanent…
Content, consistent and calm described Ivan Harlow’s life to a tee. Satisfied with being a artist at the world-famous Permanent Tattoo, playing the role of eternal side-kick, and of course, hooking up with his best friend’s baby sister, his days are predictable and fun, and nothing has to change. With his live story permanently embedded in his skin, he still can’t help but feel anything he dares to love will only be temporary.
All Emily Elliott wants are some big changes in her life. She wants to make it big in the world makeup, needs to show her three big brothers she is all grown up, and dreams of truly being with Ivan, the man she has wanted since she was seven years old.
However, when the fate of the tattoo shop is put into Ivan and Emily’s hands, they must not only work together outside of the bedroom, but face their own personal truths, and figure out what is permanent, what is temporary and where love fits.
Temporary is Book Two in the Indelibly Marked Series that revolves around the lives and loves of the Elliott Family and Permanent Tattoo. Each full-length book can be read as a stand alone, and features its own couple.
Interview with JB Fellers, Cover Model for Permanent
Have you read Permanent? I have not read it.
If so, is there anything about Shane that you relate to? If not, whats stopping you? I have dyslexia so spending my time reading my school textbooks is all the reading I can take.
How many Tattoos do you have? Any meanings behind them? I have 5 tattoos. All of them have meaning. My first was my 21st bday gift to myself. It is a sun with 3 moons. 3 is my favorite number. My tree is by my favorite artist mc Escher. My lion is colored blue so the tattoo stands for strength, honesty and loyalty (all attributes I hope others see in me). My 4-5 are birds in relief on my back that I drew myself.
Three things about yourself that most people don’t know? 1. I have written 2 books of poetry when I was younger and tried to get them published when I was a teen. 2. My favorite poet is Edgar Allen Poe. 3. I believe the most valuable thing someone can give me, or I them, is time.

What inspired you to write the Indelibly Marked Series? I loved the idea of the bad boy with a heart of gold. I wanted someone who was off the beaten track and totally and completely Los Angeles. Shane was born because I love that look and that image.
Who is your favorite character to write? Oh geez, that’s like asking to choose a favorite child. I have to say that while Shane will always hold a special place in my heart, the title of my favorite person to write has to go to his best friend, Ivan. He is so damaged and so worried and just wants to do the right thing. He’s so afraid of anything upsetting his little universe and I just could really identify with him.
What is your attraction to Tattooed men? It seems like men with tattoos are very deep, so deep that they need to put on their skin what maybe they can’t say in words.
What kind of research did you do for the series? I visited a lot of shops in Hollywood, I interviewed tattoo artists from around the country, and I did an extensive interview with Dirk Vermin (Bad Ink). For some of the plot points in the second book I did consult with two dermatologists.
Are there going to be more books in this series? There will be two more to round off the series. Carson, the quiet brother, and we will end with Dillon.
