Hey, folks! L.M. Randem here. :)
I’ve just self-pubbed my first Kindle book under my new pen name, which is a contemporary—and somewhat steamy—romance. No shifters, no vamps, no paranormal anything, just a good old-fashioned love story where a man and a woman fall for each other at first sight.
How was it for me to write this story? Well, let me begin by explaining that the story itself is being told in a trilogy of shorter-style e-books—estimated print length ninety to one-hundred pages each—titled #1 UnDone, #2 UnHinged, and #3 UnStoppable. UnDone was published on April 9, 2014, UnHinged is in the final stages of editing and will be released within the next couple of weeks, and UnStoppable is at about the halfway point of being written and is scheduled to be released within the next month.
As for the content, I’m one of those people who always said I’d never write anything too steamy, because it just wasn’t my thing. I know how it works and all, lol, but it’s like being in someone’s bedroom with them when they should be alone. After much internal and external debate (with friends and family), however, I decided to change my mind. I’ve seen a huge influx of stories from sorta sexy to straight-up erotica, and they all seem to be selling like hotcakes. What’s that saying? I believe it goes like so, ’If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,’ and that’s exactly what I’m attempting to do with this trilogy. There’s at least one long sex scene in each book, and I don’t mind saying that I feel I’ve done a great job writing them with as much class as possible. Each scene gets a little easier to write, too, so perhaps one of these days I’ll become much more comfortable writing in this genre.
In this trilogy, you’ll follow Sam and Billy (short for Belinda), as they are brought together by a strange twist of fate, and fall head-over-heals in love. There are also hurdles they both must overcome, tragedies from the past that come back to haunt them, and unexpected dreams that come true. I hope you’ll give it a chance, and that you enjoy my debut into the world of writing romance and drama.
