A reawakening – new novellas emerging

Following the closure of my first-ever publisher, SteameReads, my Bucket List series (six novellas strong) has been looking for a new home.

The Bucket List1 lost2

In the meantime, I’ve been super-busy, ghostwriting erotic novellas at the rate of two per week. Not all of these disappear into the ether with someone else’s name on, however. A few, only a few, remain mine.

These are the precious stories which, as they take shape, cling to my mind wailing ‘we’re yours, don’t send us away.’

Well, I couldn’t, could I? Not after that.

Such a story is ‘The Progenitors.’

In such a case, the client gets a simpler version of the (rapidly-expanding) story, something quite different. But at its heart, it contains the same requirements, so the contract is fulfilled. As a bonus, I end up with something quite wonderful, which is a story with the potential for a series.

Born from an original request for a MMF erotic story involving shape-shifting wolves, I tried to find a new angle on this very popular, and much-covered genre.

I hope I’ve done it justice. 🙂

Due for release on June 11th 2015, The Progenitors is the first in the proposed ‘Wolves of New Hampshire’ series.

I’ll be sending out ARCs to my trusted betas soon. If you’re a bona-fide reviewer, and you’d be interested in featuring the story, please let me know in the comments below.

Please note: I’m only permitted to release a limited number of ARCs, and only to publisher-approved reviewers, so I’ll have to be choosy.

Watch this space for more new novellas (I have more!). 😀

iHeart Kelly Love (again)

Kelly Love (not the Australian fashion designer) has been very busy lately.

Not content with one sweet F/F story, she’s already published a sequel, with a third to follow soon.

I gotta find out what brand of coffee she drinks!

Carnal Sin is her second novella length office-based lesbian romp, which follows on from Carnal Lust.

Carnal sin cover

“Stacy Quinn is falling in love with her boss, Marcy. But trouble arrives in the shape of Josefina, a gorgeous, slender, young woman who bears a stunning resemblance to Marcy’s past lover.
As Josefina and Marcy are brought together to work on a series of high-tech adult toys, Stacy begins to worry as the pair see more of each other than they should. Stacy watches helplessly as they share several passionate moments together whilst testing vibrators.
Will Stacy be pushed aside in favor of the stunning young woman? Or will Stacy fight for her one chance at true love?”

At 15k, Carnal Lust is packed with story and steam, plus a good dose of intrigue. Carnal Sin continues the story, where Stacy Quinn must decide if she wants to throw herself into her boss’s arms, heart and soul, or keep a little of herself aside for her regular bed-friend, Rachel. Once again, the sex is hot, hard and sticky, but Stacy is thrown off-track when the beautiful Josefina walks into her life and provides her boss with a new kind of distraction.

I loved this story of women in love and turmoil, as it mirrors six months of my life in a previous, previous, previous job, and a relationship which didn’t end well. But I have my fingers crossed for Stacy’s HEA. Can’t wait for the next story! 😀

iHeart the new release from Kelly Love!

One of my Facebook friends has finally been able to spill the beans on a secret she’s been bursting to announce for the past four weeks.

Kelly Love (not to be confused with the Australian fashion designer) is very excited about her first ever release, a novella length office-based lesbian romp, Carnal Lust. It’s a pure F/F story, with only occasional hints to anything remotely M/F. 😀

carnal love cover

“Stacy Quinn is a hotshot copywriter, working at the world’s top advertising agency. She has the looks, the smarts and the drive. She has it all. Or so it seems…
Stacy has secrets, dark secrets that haunt her every single day. Every night she chases a new woman to satisfy her lust. But each conquest leaves her feeling emptier than the last. When new manager Marcy arrives at the office, Stacy finds the ground shifting beneath her feet.

Will Marcy be another wet, hot and steamy conquest or can their relationship blossom into something more?”

At 15k, Carnal Lust is packed with story and steam, plus a good dose of will-they-won’t-they intrigue. Stacy Quinn bounces (literally) from woman to woman, hoping each one will fill the emptiness within her. The sex is hot, hard and sticky, but leaves Stacy feeling as lonely as ever. However, the new boss provides Stacy with a different kind of distraction, that of writing copy for a range of adult merchandise.  This has the added bonus of bringing the two women close together from the outset.

I’ve been involved in the project as a beta-reader and loved the mixture of fun and hints of darkness that infuse Stacy’s life. Kelly’s also considering a sequel, so more hot boss-and-employee frolics could follow. I already volunteered to beta this one as well. 🙂

If you sneak across to Kelly’s author page, you can even bag yourself a free deleted scene from the book, an idea I love so much I think I’ll steal offer something similar for my own stories.

Here at long last (with a touch of controversy)!!!

Work, Rest&Play-highres

After a tantalisingly long wait, the second Action Station novel is now available to read!

Although I thoroughly enjoyed writing this second story about the sexual awakening of young firefighter Jensen Brother, it’s already ruffled a few feathers in the M/M genre, because the story also features…wait for it…a woman!

Wait, you cry. How can a hot M/M romance have a woman in it?

Well, it’s partly the fault of my libido and partly a vehicle to highlight young Jensen’s sexual awakening. As with the first Action Station novella (A Risk of Showers), Jensen gets it on with a couple of the other guys at Rutherford Fire Station and some hot guy-on-guy action follows.

One of them, Craig, is bisexual rather than gay, so when a grateful fire victim, Monique, makes him an offer he can’t refuse, he persuades Jensen along. Both Jesen and Craig were both instumental in saving the woman’s from her burning apartment. Monique’s intent is to reward the guys with sex, but whilst bisexual Craig is eager to accept, Jensen finds  himself left on the sidelines, unable to muster any interest in the woman’s body. He only has eyes for Craig’s muscles and his aroused tackle.

And so, young Jensen realises he is fully gay and is able to put aside any remaining doubts. He is persuaded to join in the threesome, but the woman accepts the lad isn’t interested in her, and watches with some excitement as the two hunky firefighters pleasure each other.

I must admit that my own fantasises crept into play as I wrote this story. The idea of being in bed with two guys whilst they were playing with each other brought me a little thrill…one that mecassitated me scurrying away from the keyboard a couple of times to ‘sort myself out.’

What? You don’t think writers get turned on by their own stories? 😉

Anyway, the result has already caused some arguments about whether Monique ought to be in the story at all.  The best I can suggest is for you to read it and make up your own mind whether this is a female fantasy story, or an awkward genre-stretcher.

In the meantime, be nice to yourself.

Caution: Work, Rest and Play will definitely contain nudity.

 

Warning – You may experience ‘A Risk of Showers!’

A Risk of Showers-highres

It’s release day!

My first M/M novella, ‘A Risk of Showers’ has finally been aired!

For those of you who tend to steer clear of M/M stories, I’ll catch up with you when the next Bucket List story is ready to be released. TBL5 (Stage Fright) has just been completed and sent off to SteameReads today, so it shouldn’t be long.

Meanwhile, A Risk of Showers, the first (hopefully) in a series of ‘Action Station’ stories is now available from the happily-named ‘Spunk Books‘, brother site to SteameReads and a site dedicated entirely to M/M stories.

If you’re so inclined, please browse this new store and see what’s available. The titles are hot, Hot, HOT! The range will continue to grow with time, but I’m proud to count my story amongst the early titles.

A Construct of Angels – two days to go

My Friday will be spent boogie-ing away at this virtual party. Yay! Virtual glass of wine, anyone?

Andrew Toynbee's very own Blog

re-release banner feb 28 2014

Party on here.

With only a few days to go until the relaunch, almost everything is in place for the party. Never having organised one of these before, I was initially faced with a writer’s worst nightmare – the blank page – before my friend Sonya Loveday sent me a list of suggestions. Thank you Sonya! 🙂

I’ve since found inspiration and added a few other items that ought to entertain those who are attending on Friday between 20:00 – midnight GMT (15:00 – 19:00 EST).

Please drop by, even if it’s just to say hello.

Also, please feel free to reblog or share this with anyone you think may be interested.

The party will feature eBook and audiobook giveaways, fun and games, caption contests and general banter… plus I hope to have some cute little items of swag to offer up.

Hope to see you there.

P.S. I would also like to say

The Bucket List Part four – ‘Chilled Out’

TBL4_ChilledOut

Release day is finally here!  When I offered to write a Christmas version of The Bucket List back in August, December (as it always does) seemed to be an age away. Of course, it’s here with a bang, as are Lucy, Amber and all her friends.

This story contains a small surprise. I could tell you, but I will let my very good friend and fellow author Robert Fanshaw reveal the details on his blog. His first book, ‘Shameless Ambition’ was part of the reason I was able to craft ‘Chilled Out’ in the first place. Thanks Robert!

This story was a hoot to create. Anyone who has read other books in The Bucket List series will recognise some old friends from the first and third stories. Whilst the series doesn’t have to be read in order, it does progress with the numbers and regular readers will notice small changes in the characters’ lifestyle.

I’m also hoping to announce the release of a small Lucy-and-Amber freebie… a prequel to the series. More on that when it’s ready.

In the meantime, stay warm, curl up with a good book (might I recommend one of mine or Robert’s?) and drink hot chocolate with no guilt whatsoever!

Five stars for ‘Flames of Passion’

Flames-of-Passion-300dpi

I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that ‘Flames of Passion’ has already received its first five-star review!

Woot! (Is that the right word?) 😀

This is the third story in ‘The Bucket List’ series. Amber is up to her old tricks and poor Lucy is on the receiving end once again.

Or is she?

Is Lucy so suspicious that she is even dreaming about being manipulated by her friend? Perhaps she’s just had too much wine and cheese. That would certainly explain why eight naked fireman are standing round Lucy’s bed, offering to carry her from the smoke-filled house and massage her flame-dried skin whilst delivering warm oxygen directly from a fireman’s lips.

Pick up a copy of ‘Flames of Passion’ (over 18s only) and decide for yourself. But be sure to wear gloves – this book is rated as hot, hot, hot!
