ABOUT THE BOOK:
After losing her mother to The Reaper, the last thing Abby Conner wants to do is worry about her job. But when infertility rates begin to rise, she is forced to wonder--did the avian flu do something to our DNA?
Late hours in the lab with her closest friend Jordan lead to a relationship she never expected. Especially when Jordan introduces her to Edan, his friend and polyamory activist. Together, the three of them combat an oppressive government and a medical mystery to create hope and love in the midst of fear. But can Abby fight her own fears and learn to love two men?
She reached over to Edan and lifted his shirt off over his head. Jordan and Abby both stared for a moment at the chiseled body before them, then Jordan let out a low whistle. “Only you two could look even better without clothes. I am almost embarrassed to be so lucky right now.”
Abby ran her hands over Edan’s bare chest, then stood him up to remove his jeans. His cock stood out from his body, and Abby pulled him into her arms to feel it up against her body. He responded by gently thrusting his hips, placing his hands at her waist. She kissed him again, this time he allowed her to penetrate him with her tongue, and they played for a few moments. She felt Jordan step behind her and shifted her weight back to let him know she wanted him close as well. He pulled her top off, then her pants but left on the black bra and thong she was wearing. She was warm, surrounded by men. Abby turned to face Jordan and Edan pulled her rear into him, cock resting neatly between her cheeks. He groaned, and spoke in her ear, “Abby, I had no idea how beautiful you were under all those clothes. You look gorgeous and you feel so good against me. Is Jordan as handsome as you are beautiful?”
“Oh yes, but you don’t have to take my word for it.” She undressed Jordan quickly. What a sight they must have been, she thought, standing in the living room surrounded by pillows and blankets, naked, save for her undergarments. She looked from one to the other of her men, then they sank into a three way embrace, her in the middle. She rested her head on Jordan’s chest and felt Edan’s hands encircling her waist. Jordan’s hands reached around both of them to cup Edan’s firm ass and pull him closer to them.
Abby felt Edan’s cock push into her backside and moaned softly. She laid back and he began tracing his fingers over her body. He ran his hands lightly over every part of her, then reached around and freed her breasts, tossing her bra across the room. Jordan nodded his assent, smiling his sunny smile. Both men kissed her breasts then, and she felt a hand, Jordan’s she thought, moving up her inner thigh.
The boys rose from her and started kissing each other. Jordan’s wandering hand made it to her pussy and dove in, found her clit and began stroking her in the rhythm he knew she loved. She kept her eyes wide, enjoying the hand on her but also enjoying the show. Edan sat up slightly and began running his hands down Jordan’s back. He moved back and Jordan licked his way down Abby’s thighs to bury his face between her legs. He began licking her clit in his legendary way, sucking her in until she was bucking beneath him. Beyond him she could see Edan caressing Jordan’s legs and ass, occasionally dipping in to finger his asshole. Jordan moaned into her pussy; vibrations coursed through her and she came to shuddering climax.
Why did you become a writer? Was it a dream of yours since you were younger or did the desire to write happen later in your life?
I've been writing all along, as I imagine most of us have. English and writing were always my strong suits in school and I've always written stories for fun. I never considered trying to write for pay until a couple years ago. I tried my hand at National Novel Writing Month and wound up with an entire book! After a lot of revision and rewriting, I decided I wanted to give epublishing a shot. The market is competitive but nice and supportive for a newbie like myself. After some rejection, which is a part of writing life, Triple X is now available! And I couldn't be more excited!
What do you love about being an author? Is there anything you dislike?
I love the ability to tell whatever story I want, to go where I want to go. I love making up the rules. Guess I'm a bit of a control freak, LOL. My characters are near and dear to me, even the "red shirts" and "NPC"s. I really dislike the waiting, rejection, and editing that is part of the package, but hey, without rejection how could I improve myself? I wouldn't want to get a big head (snicker).
How do you balance your personal and writing time?
Um, you tell me? Haha, no really, I have yet to find that perfect balance between story and laundry. If you know the secret, feel free to email it on! Until then, let's just say there is an awful lot of laundry to do.
How do you write? Do your characters come to you first or the plot or the world of the story?
What I get is a random thought from the muse. Usually in the form of "wouldn't XYZ make a cool story?". In the case of Triple X, I really wanted to write a menage novel, and I needed a plot to frame the idea of three folks in love. In that case, the theme of polyamory drove the plot. However, in another unpublished novel, the muses came up with "wouldn't it be cool if the famous female pirate Anne Bonny had a daughter, and she also became a pirate?" And the plot flowed from that idea. So I suppose the answer to the question is "neither"--I get a story from an idea, which could be character or world based, or something different entirely. My muse is a pain that way.
What genre(s) do you write? Why do you write the stories that you write?
I generally write erotic fiction. After that, the genre thing gets fuzzy. I've recently realized I write more sci fi than I originally expected to, but hey, that works. My stories tend to have some fantasy or sci fi elements. Contemporary work, while fun, is just not my bag, baby. Although I do have a contemporary BDSM story coming out with Phaze in October as part of the Coming Together anthology. So there you go--fuzzy. I write what I do because I have fun doing it. I want to enjoy my writing, not agonize over it. So I write sex because I love to do it, and the stories I write are always fun and "romp-ish". And just for fun, the newest WIP is quite serious in tone. Fuzzy. If I ever make it on a shelf, they won't know where to put me!
Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they totally from your imagination?
Depends on the character, but yes there are a few I've borrowed from my life. Usually it is one aspect--a physical description or a quirk. Unless it is someone I don't like, then I'll just write them in so I can kill them off or otherwise torture them. Writing rules! Also, while I try hard not to "Mary Sue", I imagine there is a lot of myself in my characters, too.
Out of all the characters that you've written, who is your favorite and why?
Tough one. I'd probably choose Rebekah Bonny, my fictional child of real famous pirates in A Pirate's Legacy (unpublished). I love her conflict--she's a cutthroat pirate but she also wants a different life, a simpler one with the man she loves. She is at once tender and fierce. She takes no prisoners, makes no apologies and suffers no fools. Her life was tragic and short, but every moment of it was lived hard and well. She captured my imagination, I guess. And for a totally different reason, I'm very fond of Jason Bell, the dashing and silly hero of The Jason Factor. He's hot, he's a cad, he's outrageous. And that is a good time.
What would you want readers to take away from your books?
A reviewer recently said that my book made her think and wonder if "the way things are" is the way things should be. I am immensely gratified by that. I love to make people think twice about their own prejudices. I'd also like people to be turned on, and laugh, and have some fun when they read. That is my main goal--to write books that are fun to read.
Do you have any advice for beginning writers in regards to writing a book?
DO IT. Who cares if it is good? Who cares if it will sell? Just do it. If you don't, you'll never know if it could be good. First drafts always suck. Try NaNoWriMo if you get caught by your internal editor. Writing is hard, but it is also simple. Butt in chair. Period. After that, you can worry about critique and editing and sales and blah blah. Right now, just do it.
What are you reading right now?
The Golden Compass, Phillip Pullman. Awesome, awesome fantasy novel. I'm also looking forward to diving in to Kushiel's Justice, Jacqueline Carey, and the last of the Old Man's War trilogy by John Scalzi, The Last Colony. All fantastic writers, whom I can only hope to be like someday.
If you could be anyone or anything that you wanted, who or what would you be?
See above? Hee hee. Apart from that, I'd like to be rich so my husband can feed me grapes all day while I write. Barring those two, I'm pretty happy the way I am, though I always strive to be better at what I do.
