A Woman Down Under Series

A Woman Down Under Series Mock up 3Something the fans have said (and I do listen) is that they hate to wait for a new book in a series to come out.  Once their interest is engaged, they want to know what is going to happen in the next part of the series, right away, not to have to wait.  Well, that’s where this series is a little different.  These are the first four in what I hope will become a fantastic and captivating series for my fans, new and old, to follow.

See, not only is this series new, but it takes place in about the 1850’s of Australia, in the Outback and is told by four different women from their perspective.  No, it isn’t the same story told four different times, but rather their stories told from their points of view and what happens to them.

You can buy any of these and read them in any order too, which I thought might be a plus, another thing that readers sometimes worry about, did they get all of them in the series, are they in order.

* I’m releasing them on the same day, so you don’t have to wait.

* I’m releasing them as novellas, in paperback, on the same day too!

* I’m releasing them on Kindle Unlimited, something I haven’t done in ages, so you can get them potentially for free if you have joined their program.

If you aren’t on Kindle Unlimited, and that is okay, they are only $4.99 *US and really for under $5 you can’t believe the adventure you are about to embark upon!

I really want people to try out my writings, some who might not have read my historical romances before.  Also, my current fans will have this new and awesome series to enjoy as they already know I write detailed and dramatic stories.

So don’t wait, pre-order your copy today from Amazon!

Btw, there are more already written and waiting to come out, but, one at a time, okay?  It’s making my editor’s hair turn gray!  Lol.  I have been working on this for a while because I wanted to try this concept of releasing the series all at once.

Only these first four will be on Kindle Unlimited, the rest, as they are available will come out normally (for me) and randomly and be available on all the platforms.

Enjoy!

An Island Between Us ~ New release

An Island Between UsImagine it’s 1945.  You are waiting for your husbands to return from WW2…and they don’t.

Fast forward to 1949.  You work in a mill where you aren’t appreciated.  You hate it, and people are beginning to wonder why you don’t remarry and give up the traditionally male jobs you do now that you need to support yourself in the burgeoning after-war economy.  They want you to go back to your kitchens, take care of your existing children, remarry, and have more children…the American way.

But what if you don’t want that traditional way of life?  What if you have fallen in love with another woman and wish to make a new life with her?

Marion Whiting and Barbara Jenkins are two such women.  They are stuck in dead-end jobs in a mill, sharing a life they believe no one would understand…and each other.  After finding an ad in the local newspaper, they decide to give up everything for a dream.  They take their children and go. But the work involved in creating their dream just might quash the dream, their relationship, and the life they are building together.  How can two women alone with their children on a secluded island make it all work?

On my website, as they become available in the various distributors, they are listed here:ebook

So you write lesbian fiction…

When I tell strangers I write lesbian fiction, they equate this with erotica or porn.

Let me explain, porn is visual, so no, I don’t write porn.

In my early years, I wrote erotica (rarely now, because I’ve been there, done that).  However, I like to think the love scenes in my books are definitely not fade-to-black.

It’s amazing how many people assume being a lesbian or writing their stories equates to writing erotica or in their ignorant mind’s, porn…do they really think all lesbians are promiscuous?

Last year in Provincetown I was asked what I wrote, as I was deliberately not saying lesbian fiction…my bland answer told around a fire was, “smut.”  It went over very well, we still chuckle at that reply, but who really cares if I do or don’t?

Sometimes I don’t even tell people anything about the lesbian part, I just say fiction…romance, mystery, action-adventure, but mostly drama.  I’m telling about human lives and they just happen to be lesbians.  I’m not ashamed that I write, it simply is not always about the lesbian, it’s about the story.

In fact, with this in mind, I don’t always put the tags on it when I publish it.  I put it out there to the ‘straight’ world, have picked up some great ‘straight’ followers who appreciate a well-written story.  One reviewer wrote on one of my books, it would have been a great story if I just didn’t have the lesbians in it.

I write what I know, from my own perspective.  It isn’t everyone’s view on life.  I’m telling about a marginalized part of our society that needs a voice.  I’m telling their stories.  I hope I give a well-rounded story where lives go on and the viewer, reader, gets to participate….there just happens to be lesbians in the story.

So, on Lesbian Visibility 2019…be out there and visible!

Inn the Dog House

Inn the Dog House Front.jpg

Life has gone to the dogs for Charlie Abella.  Years of showing champion Border Collies has left her feeling burned out.  Moving on with her life, she heads to college and then takes on the world of business.  She is blessed to find a job working in sales for the pet industry where her knowledge and skills will help her move quickly up the corporate ladder and away from the small town of Searsport, Maine where she grew up.  When she loses a beloved relative, Charlie returns to Searsport for the funeral, believing now, she can finally cut all ties to her hometown.

Charlie’s only regret about moving away was leaving behind her favorite aunt.  Aunt Kitty had been her champion and her anchor when she felt her own family didn’t understand her.  Kitty saw herself in her young niece and understood Charlie as no one else could, so it was only natural she would choose to make her favorite niece her heir.  Sadly, she knows only too well that Charlie’s family will disapprove no matter how Charlie decides to use the money she inherits.

Reagan has been left on her own to raise two children.  Possessing few business skills, she is forced to take on a series of dead-end jobs that barely allow her to make ends meet.  Reagan has only her faith and her children to provide solace and support.  When Reagan encounters a woman dog walker on the street, she takes some comfort in feeling ‘at least she is better off than a woman with too many dogs to handle.’ 

Inexplicably, fate constantly causes the two women to bump into each other, and when Reagan feels herself becoming attracted to the woman, she is confused.  Unlike Charlie, Reagan is not a lesbian, and she is frightened by her feelings for this woman.  Will Reagan eventually act on her attraction, or will she continue to resist it? 

The dogs know what is right for this couple.  Now, if only the humans would listen!

Labels ~ Model?

Some things should be labeled, some things should not be…

Some labels that I gladly accept (in no particular order): entrepreneur, lesbian, business owner, mom, writer/author, marketeer, and publisher.

Some labels I never expected to hear: diva, stud, model.

The idea of being called a stud is laughable to this femme lesbian, but there you have it, I have not only been labeled one, but it’s official…and, they are using my picture as a model for their calendar!  I love their explanation of what a divastud is and I really do think I fit it so I gladly accept these new labels even if I laugh at them too!

Check it out here and you can order prints of their calendar while you are there!
