Signs of Love’s Vaughn Jackson

Today’s contestant on the fictional reality show Sink or Swim is Vaughn Jackson, 37 years old from San Antonio, TX. Vaughn is a character from the new book Signs of Love by Chanta Jefferson Rand. Vaughn is no stranger to reality shows, but more on that later. For now, the rules of “this” game show. Here’s a recap: the three literary characters with the highest number of unique commenters to their post will be chosen as winners at the end of the year, so be sure to leave a comment. Here are Vaughn’s answers to the Sink or Swim 6.

1. Tell us about the book you’re from.
I’m the hero from the reality TV show romance called Signs of Love by Chanta Jefferson Rand. I get to choose my soul mate from 12 lucky bachelorettes who each have a different zodiac sign – thus the title, Signs of Love. Pretty catchy huh? Yeah, I know. The author is one smart Pisces. You can find Signs of Love on Amazon here.

2. What is something about yourself that no one else knows?
No one except my best friend and manager knows that I’m on a self-imposed hiatus from sex. I’ve got too many damn paternity suits against me, so I’m very distrustful of women. The sad thing is I’ve never even met some of the women accusing me of being their “baby daddy.” But I guess the promise of a huge pay day lures gold-diggers from around the world.

3. Tell us about an unusual job or hobby that you’ve had?
Fifteen years ago, I was the hottest singer on the R&B charts. I was known as the man with the velvet voice. But when I refused to conform to the changing trends in music, my record label turned its back on me. Ever since then, I’ve had a sour taste in my mouth for the entertainment business. But I still got it, baby. I can sing the panties off any woman.

4. What is the strangest or most exciting thing that has ever happened to you?
The most exciting thing was winning four Grammys. The strangest thing would be appearing on Signs of Love. Unfortunately, it’s the only way I can make enough money to pay the IRS the $700,000 in back taxes that I owe them. Correction: I don’t owe them – my sorry ass accountant, Willie Armstrong put all the money I made up his nose and now, the sonofabitch has been missing for six months. So, guess who’s left holding the bag?

5. What would you do if you won a million dollars?
If I won a million dollars, I would try to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. My grandmother, Elsa (who raised me because my parents cared more about drugs than children) is suffering from this devastating disease. Back in the day, she was a gorgeous German burlesque dancer. To me, she’s always been “Grams.” I provide round-the-clock care for her every need. She’s always been there for me and I intend to do the same for her.

6. Please tell us briefly about your author and list web sites.
My author’s site is This site showcases all of her and links to other sites and charities she supports. Each month, a percentage of the proceeds from her books goes to charity.

Chanta’s radio show site is This site provides information on all the authors she interviews on her bi-monthly internet radio show. The guests are limited to romance authors only, but they have a ball (no pun intended) discussing love, romance, and all things related to the romance industry.

For newcomers, this on-line “game show” is inspired by the reality TV-themed mystery novel Sink or Swim.

  1. Thanks Stacy! I just can’t resist a good reality TV show. I hope people will enjoy reading Vaughn and Sloane’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

  2. Thanks for letting Vaughn take some time to chat with us, Chanta! I’ll look forward to reading this book. You and I must be on the same wavelength – we both have a reality TV novel, we’ve both been inspired by astrology (I’m working on Sign of the Messenger, while you have Signs of Love), and you have Dirty Laundry and I have a free story, Laundry Day. (the last line mentions dirty laundry.) Maybe we have the same muse, lol.

  3. I love the inside looks these books are giving us into the life of a reality star. I would love to read this book!

    • Janiera, I love finding about all the nitty gritty details behind the scenes too. Some of my favorite reality shows often have the reunion shows where the contestants dish all the dirt that happened when the cameras weren’t around. Oh, to be a fly on the wall! Keep in mind, Stacy and I are both on So, you can check out our books and read free excerpts. Take care!
