The latest:

Okay, all — stay tuned for newz about the Far Seek Chronicles. Yes, they are currently off the market, but I’m working hard to get them back on AND release a 4th in the series. WOOOO! So stay with me, luv bugs!

We’ve got some grooviness going on, friends. R.G. Emanuelle and I JUST RELEASED our 2nd food-themed anthology together, Order Up: A Menu of Lesbian Romance & Erotica.

cover_A_Order-Up_500x800Here’s the fancy-schmancy TABLE OF CONTENTS! If you remember our Lambda finalist anthology, All You Can Eat, this is sort of a follow-up, and it, like the other, includes recipes with the stories. Some are for real and others are added bits of fun to each story. Regardless, we hope you join us for fun and frolicking!

And look at THIS.

If Looks Could KillThat right there is a forthcoming longish novella that’ll be out and about in AUGUST 2016. What’s it about? THIS!

Eleanor “Ellie” O’Donnell is part of a special investigative unit within the New York City Police Department. She’s tasked with figuring http://thelesbiantalkshow.podbean.com/e/ww-free-stories-and-book-pirates/out the relationship between internationally known fashion mogul and all-around ice queen Marya Hampstead and a local Russian crime family. The only way Ellie can do that is to pretend she’s an aspiring designer and take a job as an intern at Hampstead’s fashion empire. And in the fast-paced world of clothes, critics, and competition, Ellie uncovers far more than runway gossip, including secrets that will kill far more than a bad outfit.

Also, if you’d like to find out MOAR about what’s going on at Women and Words, the site I co-admin with fellow author Jove Belle, we’ve got a podcast and you can catch it every week RIGHT HERE.

  1. Hi, there–thanks for stopping by!

    NOTE: SPOILER BELOW! Don’t read any further if you haven’t read “Some Kind of River.”

    At this point, I’m not planning a sequel to “Some Kind of River,” which I originally wrote and published with Torquere Press in 2008, I believe it was. When the rights to that story reverted to me, I then re-wrote it as a novella and self-published it on Kindle (as you know). When I originally wrote the story, I had never conceived of it as anything but a standalone, because I like thinking of Dez and Mel as happy in their initial decision to act on their attraction and engage in a relationship. I don’t like thinking of them as possibly not working out, and a sequel would have to delve into whether or not their relationship was going to work or not, and I don’t like thinking of them as not working out, though obviously that does happen with relationships. But here, I wanted to retain the elements of romance and hopefulness between them. That’s why I wrote “Some Kind of River” as a standalone, because I liked trying to capture that moment where two people realize they have deeper feelings for each other and they might make a good match, and I liked thinking that readers could maybe see possibility in their own lives, because these two took a chance.

    Now, I have delved into the “meat” of relationships in the two series I write. One is a mystery series set in New Mexico and the other is a sci fi series. The main characters in each of them experience the euphoria and romance of finding someone who might be really special, and in each book, I explore deeper layers of those relationships because people and relationships change as time passes. Those two series I initially conceived of and designed as series, so I was fully prepared to throw my characters into the messy aspects of relationships, in addition to the fun stuff.

    Having said that, I am currently finishing up another romance novella with a couple of characters I think you might enjoy and that one I conceived as something that would, in fact, have a sequel. I’ll leave it at that. I hope to publish this novella on Kindle next month (March 2013).

    And having said all that, I have another standalone romance full-length novel that I’ve just about completed. I hope to possibly have that ready for public consumption this fall. Stay tuned… ๐Ÿ˜€

    And thank you so much for reading and I’m so glad you like Dez and Mel. They do have a special place in my heart.

    Cheers!

  2. Just finished “From the Boots Up”. Wow. I grew up a country girl and memories came flooding back. That book didn’t even feel like I was reading. It was like I was living it. You know its a good book when you can’t remember turning any pages and next thing you know it is the end. I would love a follow up.

  3. I absolutely loved From the Boots Up! I enjoyed all the warm hearted characters. Looking forward to reading more… very easy read! Great writing Andi…

  4. From the Boots Up,is the best lesbian romance book I have ever read. I sure hope you have another one on the way.

  5. Hi Andi,

    Just wanted to say thank you for the great work you’re doing. I’m always happy to find a great bard and you work is up there with the best. I especially loved your fantasy series and can’t wait for the next book.:) You’re work reminds me of Elizabeth Moon’s Vatta’s series. Which I hope you take as a compliment. All the best for the future.

    A fan.

  10. Just read From The Boots Up and From The Hat Down. Great characters all round. Loved them all! It was easy to become involved in the twists and turns of Meg and Gina’s relationship and couldn’t turn the pages fast enought (figuratively speaking as was an ebook!)
    Looking forward to reading more of your books as they’re published.
    Cheers
