Product Description

"Mirroring real life, just when you think it can’t get any better – it doesn’t."  ~Opinion Dyke

Christmas is just around the corner. India and Tegan are immersed in their idyllic life in Rain Falls, free of the wretched machinations of one Napoleon Fry, and exploring their storybook romance. Everyone seems so enthusiastic about how India has changed, and rightfully credits Tegan with her transformation.

India thinks of herself as dark-roasted, just like her favorite coffee. She's aware of her dark side, and that darkness is the absence of light. India usually prefers darkness; she prefers the absence. Now, she has this presence. Tegan. And so the darkness doesn't seem all that precious to her anymore.

Not so long ago, India had been certain that she could never share a bed with anyone unless they purred and had paws. And while she's heard Tegan purr in their intimate moments, the paw thing is missing. Unless she counted Tegan's soft hands. Which she decided to count.

To Tegan, India is the gift horse, when all Tegan had known were the Trojan-variety; women who used whatever means necessary to get what they wanted, under the guise of being generous. But now, that life she loathed has been left behind. No more last-call pick-ups from lesbian bars when someone took pity on the gimp-girl; no more dealing with her insensitive and often cruel mother. No more living in that awful basement she had called the Dungeon. The only thing better than what she has right this moment, would be a miracle cure that would get her off the crutches, out of the wheelchair. So she can run. Just take off and run through the wind and rain and snow and sunshine, feeling the strength of her legs and the rhythmic slapping of her feet on the ground. So she could go for walks with India, and hold hands. But she can't expect to have it all. And she doesn't. What she has is plenty good enough. It's almost perfect.

But these two authors understand that there's a line between fact and fiction. And amid the usual humorous moments, they are about to have their relationship tested in ways they can't imagine.

"Ok, the first few pages of the book were hilarious! I mean who hasn't had that conversation. More importantly I loved how this book showed India's growth (and her mistakes) as well as her growing relationships with her sister and mother (Tegan goes without saying). The interactions between Jamaica and India are fantastic. I also enjoyed how Ms. Baeli let us enjoy the story and get to know the characters and not leave us in suspense the whole book waiting for the other shoe to drop about India's father. I wouldn't mind reading more about the people of Rain Falls and the mishaps the deputies can get themselves into." ~Amazon Customer

About the Author

Bestselling author of the Rain Falls series and AKA Investigations series, and Pitfall, Kelli Jae Baeli began writing as a child, exploring poetry and journaling, and eventually moving on to short stories. After a romantic fling in the military with another female soldier, she decided to write a book based on the experience. The story that evolved took on a life of its own, but it became her first novel, As You Were. This was followed quickly by Armchair Detective, a book she said she wrote because she couldn't find other lesbian fiction she liked at the time, and so wanted to write something she would want to read. She's been doing that ever since. Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, she is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after eight years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing. Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, Baeli has also done book cover design, typography, and formatting since 1998. She also founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, and Kind Red Ink Editing, and currently publishes under the imprints Indie Literati Press, and Lesbian Literati Press. Creativity comes as easily as breathing to Baeli. Living a life around words, books, art, and music not only fulfills her, but defines her. An independent publisher, she has authored and produced 42 books, both non-fiction and fiction, in a variety of genres. Constantly mining the world around her for literary tidbits, Baeli is always to be found with iPhone in hand, recording or thumbing in notes, a self-confessed story magpie who sees everywhere the fodder for her work. She is a talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, and loves pottery and clay sculpture, as well. A canny mix of business woman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each and every day relentlessly feeding her muse. After three unfortunate years in New Zealand, she now makes her American home in the quaint village of Eureka Springs. Please visit the author at http: //
