About the Book

Title: Ahe’ey

Author: Jamie Le Fay

Genre: Epic Fantasy

Morgan is a dreamer, change maker and art lover. She is a feisty, slightly preachy, romantic feminist full of contradictions and insecurities. Morgan uncovers a world where women have the power, and where magic is no longer just a figment of her wild imagination. Sounds like a dream, but it may, in fact, turn into a nightmare.

The world of the Ahe’ey challenges and subverts her views about gender, genes, and nature versus nurture.

The strong and uninvited chemistry between her and the dashing Gabriel makes matters even more complicated. His stunning looks keep short-circuiting her rational mind.

Editorial Reviews


“In this romantic tale, a champion of women’s empowerment stumbles on a hidden–and seemingly perfect–society. A bracing mix of emotionally and intellectually honest fantasy.” – Kirkus Reviews
“A compelling and creative work of paranormal romance. Le Fey takes her characters to places seldomly seen in fantasy fiction that readers will find empowering and prescient. Ahe’ey is a fairly polarizing book. As an example of feminist fantasy fiction, you won’t find much better than this. Ahe’ey is an impressively thought-out story, with many original touches and a fairy-like romance that will deeply satisfy readers of the genre.” Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★
“This book is a thoughtful look at empowerment for women. At the same time, it’s a rollicking trip into a fantasy world complete with dragons, love and strength, and ideas that really get you thinking. This book is highly recommended for all ages.” – HUGEOrange“They’re flawed, real, and honest characters that can be easily related to. Ahe’ey is the kind of novel society needs to read, to create inspiration and to make people think. Ahe’ey is daring, complex, and honest. A must-read novel that tackles heavy and real topics with a mix of serious and humorous, charm and tragedy.” – Reader’s Favorite – ★★★★★

“Ahe’ey contains a richly imagined world that raises complicated and timely questions about our own. Jamie Le Fay’s Ahe’ey is an action-packed love story that puts forth a nuanced vision of gender stereotypes, body politics, and the dark side of seeking perfection.” – Foreword Clarion – ★★★★

Book Excerpt Domme Experience

Book Excerpt

Sam pointed:  It was a cute little power boat.  He helped me onto it, and we checked out the small cabin.  Then, he held my shoulders and kissed me; but it was a quick kiss and he was frowning.  “It’s not going to work.”  I stared at him, and finally shrugged my shoulders.

 

“I wanted us to be on the water today … to help you relax.  And I thought about kayaking, as it would give us some exercise … but we just couldn’t get very far.”

 

I shrugged again.  I wasn’t interested in going very far, except in my relationship with Sam.

 

“So I found this place, where we could rent a small boat,” he gave me the evil smile, “with a cabin, so we can have a little fun.  And I had it all worked out:  It’s only about twelve miles by river from here to Windsor; I thought we could motor up there, have a tour of the castle, and then cruise back.

 

“But there’s a speed limit on the Thames, and two locks that we would have to go through; so it would take us at least three hours to get there.”  That wasn’t going to work – it was already after two.  “So we’ll just be able to putter around for a while, no real destination in mind.  It will be more relaxing …”

 

I hugged Sam, my Sam; the one who always strove for the best, but was willing to accept compromise.  “Puttering around sounds fine, Sam.”

 

Sam got the engine going, then we cast off the lines and motored out through the marina channel to the River Thames.  The boat’s engine did make a ‘puttering’ sound.  We made a right turn, and motored past tree-lined banks, a few boats tied up, and rows of Victorian apartments.  We continued up the river, wind blowing through my hair as I stood in the cockpit next to Sam.  It was quite overcast, now, low clouds darkening the pastoral river scene.

 

The river bent and twisted, our boat following its tortuous course.  When we saw the river forking, Sam idled the engine, and we drifted. “That’s the Shepperton Lock – how we get to the higher part of the river, and continue our cruise.  But first, let’s have some lunch!”

 

We pulled up at a dock, and Sam tied the mooring lines.  It was only a few steps up to the street, and half a block to our right:  The Minnow Pub.  We were happily surprised to see outside tables; at least they had umbrellas, in case it started to rain.

 

Thinking we would go light, Sam ordered the English cheese board with artisan bread and olives.  We took our time, enjoying the food and the local surroundings.  I was glad that we hadn’t tried to squeeze in the long trip to Windsor.

 

I was getting full, already, but Sam gave me the evil eye again, and asked the waiter for a menu.  Five minutes later, a large plate was set between us – it looked like a dessert platter.

 

I looked at Sam, “Which one should we order?”

 

He laughed, “This is the ‘House Sharer’ dessert.  It has a chocolate brownie, New York style cheesecake, a lemon tart, strawberries, and house-made Bourbon vanilla ice cream cookie sandwich.”  All I could do was shake my head.  There would definitely have to be some dieting and exercise when we got back home.

 

After our lengthy meal, we took the boat through the lock – which was an interesting experience.  Several small boats were going through with us, as we all went up several feet, then motored out to the next upstream segment of the Thames.

 

We cruised a short distance, under another bridge, and alongside a park and campground, then took the boat across the river, a little downstream, and tied up to some trees along the bank.  Although we were only about 25 miles from central London, we were in a totally secluded, forested area, only a few other small boats occasionally passing us as they went up- or down-stream.  It was a truly idyllic setting.

 

I knew what Sam wanted; fortunately, it was what I wanted, too.  As Sam set a GPS app on his phone to alarm us if the boat moved, I stepped down into the tiny cabin, and undressed.  There was only a small V-berth in the bow, but it would have to do.

 

As I lay back, my head on the tiny pillow, my legs apart and ready for Sam, I saw him smile as he stepped down into the cabin.  I had expected him to undress, but he came immediately to me, holding my hips, and lowering his head to my already-sensitive tissues.

 

My eyes closed as Sam masterfully manipulated my arousal, bringing me to the brink several times, before he sucked me into his mouth, trilling his tongue against my clit.  We were both moaning, and I couldn’t help taking Sam’s hair in my fists as I arched my back, in the throes of a massive orgasm.

 

Sam was still modulating his stimulation, as I came several times, finally having to pull him by the hair up to me – and away from my throbbing lower parts.  We kissed passionately – perhaps the most longingly ever; we’d never been apart for as long before, either.

 

“Are you getting a little excited, mister?”  I laughed, as I reached down, and held his manhood, then stroked him.  Soon enough, he was undressed, and my legs were apart again for him.

About The Author

An adventuress and traveler, Simone is a sensual being who loves to read stories that excite her.  She takes exception to authors who promote their works as ‘dirty’, ‘filthy’, or ‘smutty’:  She believes that sex is wonderful in all of its incarnations, and doesn’t shy away from graphic descriptions of realistic sexual experiences, no matter how messy.  Her writing is mainly in the ‘literary realism’ style – i.e., it is wild (even outrageous) … but could really happen to you!  She values openness in relationships, and demonstrates this through her characters.

Prior to becoming an author, Simone was a nurse.  One of her pet peeves is reading erotica that gets simple anatomy wrong!  She is continually bewildered by women who haven’t explored their own bodies.  Another pet peeve is the mostly hung-up Victorian society prevalent in the U.S. and U.K., and she tries to do her part to change that by introducing people to new sexual and sensual experiences through her erotic writing.  The activities in Simone’s books are quite realistic, as she has participated in most of these in ‘real life’, as surreal as it may seem.

Simone is currently completing the Experiences series, which will run an estimated 1,000,000 words!  That is why she refers to it as an ‘epic’ romance, although each volume is intended to stand on its own, with a ‘happy for now’ ending.  Experiences combines literary style and philosophical discussion by the characters with graphic portrayal of sex in all of its kinks and fetishes.  You may not like all of the things Simone’s characters do … but neither do they.  Their exploration of new experiences will hopefully motivate some readers to explore their own sexuality to a greater extent.

Simone loves to hear from her readers, so feel free to contact her.   In fact, she hopes you will feel ‘free’ sexually and spiritually, as well.  Please follow her on social media and her blog.  On her website, you may interact directly with the main characters in her books, including asking them questions in order to understand their perspectives in more depth.

 

You can sign up to her mailing list to learn about new releases, and take advantage of promotions.  All readers on the mailing list will be sent an excerpt from each of her next novels, prior to publication.

Author Interview The Visitor

Have you been writing for a long time?

I wrote my first book in 1999

 

What inspired you to start a writing career?

I love telling stories.

 

Is this book a stand-alone, or part of a series?

Both The Visitor and Ernie and the Evils of Insurance are stand alone

 

Why did you choose this genre?

The Visitor was a super challenge in that I actually found out how to create a race-specific Ebola and it is explained in the story, as incredible as that may seem. The book has SI FI aspects, but that part is very real.

 

Ernie and the Evils of Insurance is based on actual cases that I had as a lawyer.  It was easy to incorporate them

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

No

About the Book

Title: The Visitor

Author: Brent Ayscough

Genre: Science Fiction

Tasked by the Federation of Planets to determine if Earthlings present a threat as they venture into space, Tak, an alien anthropologist, leaves her starship orbiting Earth and takes a shuttle to Kansas. Intending to study humans in the United States—as she has learned no Earth language but English—she is detected while descending through the atmosphere and only evades capture by fleeing to Europe, where she lands in Poland. There, she meets an international arms merchant, Baron Von Limbach, who becomes her guide. She studies “typical” human behavior by accompanying the baron as he fulfills his latest assignment—to get the Dalai Lama back into Tibet. His method of halting the communist takeover of Tibet is to create a race-specific Ebola that will only attack Han Chinese, giving Tak a prime example of how barbaric humans can be. However, the CIA and US military are aware of Tak’s presence on Earth and are determined to capture her. And if she is unable to complete her mission and return to her starship—her captain will destroy every living thing on Earth.

 

Author Bio

Bits and pieces of characters he has known, places he has been, seasoned with the spice of his imagination, help him create unusual stories and characters. Extensive collaboration with experts and sources, hopefully, make his stories credible and interesting.

Guest Post Black Dawn Tour

Please welcome Mallory McCartney to my blog. Mallory is the author of YA/NA Fantasy “Black Dawn”. I’ll leave the word to Mallory now, who will talk about editing process.

Guest Post

As all first-time authors, the editing process was a lovely learning curve for me! The Clean Reads team is very supportive throughout the entire process, and I can’t thank them enough for that! When I first submit my manuscript, I made sure it adheres to the submission guidelines (formatting etc.). After this it goes through three rounds with three different editors with the Clean Reads team, so every time it’s a fresh pair of eyes. This is where, with editor you go through line edits, content edits, formatting, grammar etc. This takes a couple of months, and once you complete each stage (on time! 😊 ) you go into the final look through of the book. This is where I call on my beta readers, and make any small final changes with the novel. Once this is done, it is submitted to the final stages of publication.

To me the editing stage is an amazing process, I see my manuscript go through my initial draft rewrites prior to this, which is anywhere from four to six times. To see it become a clean and final draft six- eight months later is an amazing feeling, and wouldn’t be possible without the team at Clean Reads, or my beta readers!!!

Book Excerpt The Women Who Love Rome

Book Excerpt

We have all just finished brunch when I empty the remnants on my plate into the trash. I then place everyone’s dishes into the dishwasher and wipe down the table and kitchen counters.

“You guys want to come with me to Puppy Lane to look for Doggie?” India asks us.

“I would love to,” I say to her, “but I’m already late for work.”

“I’ll go with you,” Storm says.

“If anyone needs me, I’ll be in my office reading until my eyeballs pop out,” Rome says before heading into another room.

Storm and India are on their way out when I head upstairs to dress for work. It’s already one in the afternoon, and with so much planned for me at work, my boss would rather I come in late rather than not at all.

Dressed in my navy blue leggings, flip flops and a long white shirt, I grab my clutch purse and head out. Once I reach the outside and open my car door, I stop myself. It dawns on me that with Storm and India having gone searching for Doggie, Rome is alone in the house.

I am already a million hours late for work, but I can’t help spying on Rome before I go. This is a rare moment as Storm and India are always around.

Buzzing with curiosity and anticipation, I make a U-turn back into the house. With a smile on my face, I tip toe towards his office. His office door is open and his back is to me. He faces the window, sitting in his emperor-like chair, reading.

For two minutes, I stand in the doorway, watching him with an eye of adoration. My heart swells with a nervous elation. I’m breathing him, drinking him and consuming him. My want for this man seizes every ounce of my pride, shallowing my breath. Absorbing more of him, I massage my temples and slowly move my head from left to right. I’m wasted, wasted with lust. Then, I realize something. I’m jealous. I want him to target me the same way that he focuses on the script before him, but that’s not likely to happen.

Having enjoyed the view long enough, I am about to head out to work.

“I hear you breathing back that there, Thursday,” Rome says to me.

When I hear these words come from Rome’s mouth, I gasp and almost pee in my panties.

My breathing couldn’t possibly be that loud. Or could it?

And if so, how did he know that it was me and not anyone else?

Seeing that I have been found out, I step into his office. Rome swivels his chair around towards me. “You know stalking is illegal.”

“I wasn’t stalking you,” I say, knowing full well that is exactly what I was doing.

“What’s your term for it?” he asks me.

“I was just checking you out.”

My head must be harder than a brick because even after Rome denied me sex not more than 48 hours ago, I’m seriously considering asking him again.

Am I nuts?

Can I not take a hint or what?

I hoist myself up on the edge of his desk, cross my legs and allow my flip flops to fall to the floor. “So, what are you reading?” I ask him. My voice is innocent and light.

“A story about a personal assistant who instead of going to work, decides to stalk this movie producer.”

“I was not stalking you,” I say with a chuckle, hoping he might believe me though I know that he won’t.

“You believe what you want to believe,” Rome says, “And I’ll believe what is true.”

Rome smiles at me, and I’m bombarded with so much want that I might pass out. In this unofficial drunken state, I cannot resist the urge to be rejected one more time. “You want to go upstairs?” I ask him, my eyes glancing upwards.

“Upstairs?” he questions me as if he doesn’t know what I’m talking about.

“Yeah,” I say, uncrossing my legs. “Don’t you want to take me upstairs and… put me in a coma?”

“Is that what you want?” he asks me, skeptical.

“Yeah. That’s what I want.”

At this moment, I want Rome to set his script down and escort me upstairs, but he says nothing. He strokes his chin. He is deep in thought.

“What do you think?” I ask him, hoping with everything in me that he might say yes. “Do you want to?”

“Yes, I want to,” he says easing back into this chair, “but I’m not going to.”

My mouth falls open in a frozen state.

Is he rejecting me again?

I slide off his desk, my eyes darting at him, mouth twisted. “Why do you have to be such a hard ass?” I say right before I storm out of his office.

I believe that Leonardo DiCaprio is the most fascinating actor of all time. If I could write as well as he acts, I would be rich. What I love to do more than anything else is talk. The book that most reflects my personality is my novel, “The Women Who Love Rome,” which is available for free at Smashwords.com. Contact me at londontracy44@yahoo.
