The last two hetero erotic tales I had published at Amber Quill were a historical and a fantasy. Both genres are a notch off my regular style but I am an avid reader of both and felt competent to write in them, as well.
Miss Bea and the Blacksmith came about because someone made a disparaging remark about a blacksmith being an unlikely hero in one of my yahoo groups. If you know me at all, you realize that something like that smacks me in the chops as an outright dare. A blacksmith can't be sexy and handsome and totally cool? Betcha he can! So I st down and opened the gates to that "otherwhere" that is residence to all the characters whose story has not yet been told. Out came Miss Bea and then Angus. I really enjoyed telling their story!
Here is the bulirb and the cover.
dissolute rancher named Murdock. Escaping in the middle of the night with only a few small treasures, she has no real plan except to get away.
The Farm Girl's Dragon owes some inspiration to tales by a couple of semi-contemporary fantasy authors, Elizabeth Moon and the late Anne McCaffery, both of whom I have greatly enjoyed. Several of us were working on a PAX collection about dragon shifters. My initial idea was not working so I slept on it and lo and behold, here comes Yerna, a farm girl who wants to be a knight, and a somewhat unlikely younger-son prince who is the scion of an ancient family of dragon shifters where none have used the power for several generations. Again I had a great time writing their tale!
So here is it's blurb and cover.
