Why write Lesfic

My writing buddy Niamh Murphy is here today! I’m wiggling in my seat as I type this introduction. Niamh is super cool. She penned a lesfic novel about pirates. You can’t get much cooler than that, can you? Her novel Escape to Pirate Island is one of the novels discounted for the Fall in Love…

Arrgh! Me Matey’s!

Today I’m sharing my blog with a friend and fellow author Alex Westmore.  Alex turned me on (pardon the pun) to writing in the FIRST LGBT Kindleworld EVER on Amazon.  She was fortunate enough to have many authors take one of her stories and create more stories using her characters.  They went into space, they sailed the high seas, you may remember my own Sayyida…which was based on Alex’s own character in her book!  I’d like to tell you a little about two of her books here (Click on her pictures to purchase the book(s)):

By Alex Westmore
Escaping a broken heart isn’t easy. Putting the pieces back together is even harder.

When Harper finds her husband in bed with another woman, she flies as far away from her crumbling life as she can. Although she signs up to volunteer for a village co-op in Egypt, a mishap lands her instead in the untamed wilds of South Africa. With new dangers lurking around every corner, Harper’s heart may not be the only thing that ends up broken, burned, and bruised.

She soon finds companionship in the company of a baby elephant who needs rescuing even more desperately than she does. But the unforgiving landscape and determined poachers could mean risking her own life to secure a better one for this new friend. Will Harper find a way to move to the rhythm of Africa? Or will this prove to be yet another off-beat adventure in her uncoordinated life?

And, most of all, why do her insides twirl whenever Sam draws near? For Harper, the answer could mean the difference between life and death, love or loneliness.

The Pirate’s Booty

By Alex Westmore
Pirate Chicks, Lusty Wenches, Sword Fights and Plunder? What’s not to love?
When Quinn Gallagher’s childhood friend is abducted from a dock in Ireland, she’ll do whatever it takes to come to the rescue–even if that means dressing as a man and joining the crew of one of the most notorious pirate captains the world has ever seen.

Quinn soon finds there is much to enjoy living as a man, in particular the company of other women. When she finds herself falling hard for Lady Fiona, a woman far above her own station, she is torn between revealing her true identity and continuing the façade of being a male pirate. Love is never easy, especially in the sixteenth century and especially under false pretenses.

Can Quinn live with one foot in two different worlds, or must she consign herself to either the lusty life of a pirate or the loveless life of a noble woman? Come sail the high seas in this exciting and erotic adventure with the fierce pirate Gallagher as your guide. You’re in for a wild ride and may even score some booty along the way.
The first in a series of 6.

This book was awesome and the writer brings the characters to life. I recommend it to all those who enjoy a good read – full of excitement and adventure!

The cover of the book drew me in, but the story kept me reading. This book was lent to me by a friend, and I have to say that it was quite and enjoyable read. The characters were well thought out and the story flowed smoothly. It was a bit longer than I am used to, but it was a welcome change. I have read more from this author, and look forward to more.

K’Anne knocks it out of the ball park. I love a swashbuckling good tale. This has all the earmarks of that. With the damsel in distress and the complex captain who rescues her from a life of horror. I’d recommend this for an afternoon read. I didn’t put it down until I was done.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lady Claire Von Hagen was en route to the island of Baleniesia, in the Caribbean, to meet the man her father had dictated she would marry. Lord Von Hagen, Governor of Baleniesia, ruled his island and his daughter with an iron fist, and he had determined that marriage to the distasteful, but wealthy and titled, Sir Edmund Fitzhugh, would be most advantageous. Lady Claire was sailing to Baleniesia to submit to marriage when her ship was captured by pirates. Her abductor, a pirate Captain known as Black Betty, had other plans for Lady Claire. 

Claire had never experienced love of any kind, and she had certainly never conceived of the things that went on between two women. Black Betty taught her things that surprised her, and the freedom she experiences with this woman, and their developing love, capture Claire’s heart. From the islands of the Caribbean to the shores of Canada, and on from there to the continent of Africa and the Orient… together they experience things both had only dreamt about.

Will they survive the dangers of the high seas and the first years of a relationship that neither expected to find?
