Melissa Lawrence’s life had been planned out for her.  As a wife in the upper echelon of New York society, she was expected to take her place among some of the wealthiest people in America.  A society that judges you on your looks will ignore certain things because of the money your family possesses, which you will eventually inherit; however, certain peccadillos will never be acceptable, and as Melissa becomes Mel and begins to realize her potential, life sends her on a journey she never could have anticipated.

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!

Sayyida ~ Audiobook

Sayyida Audible book.jpg

Sayyida, variously known as a pirate queen, Queen of the Western Seas, or Queen of Tétouan was a REAL and HISTORICAL figure, but not much is known of her.

Sayyida married young, just sixteen, at the insistence of her father.  Her first husband was thirty years older and a friend of her father’s.  Al-Mandri sensed his bride’s intelligence and taught her about his business affairs and diplomacy.  Together, the couple rebuilt Tétouan, which had been destroyed by the Reconquista, and when her husband died in 1515, she became the Governor or Queen of Tétouan in her own right. 

Later, Sayyida was pursued by the King of Fes, Ahmed al-Wattsi, and accepted his marriage proposal, but on her terms: he had to travel to her kingdom to marry her, not the other way around.

Sayyida’s love of the high seas and her appetite for battle and conquest often clash with her duties as wife, mother, and queen.  As hardworking as she is, Sayyida feels an emptiness in her life.  Will Aya, her new slave, silence this longing?  Join us as this fictional version of a real woman takes you into her world and captures your heart….

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?

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!
