India Bell is looking for a regular writing gig to supplement her royalties. She ends up with two assignments - one, to interview up-and-coming lesbian romance writer Tegan Lowry, and the other? To win a bet to write her own lesbian romance, thus securing for herself a job as an editor.
There's a bit of an issue with the second of those. India writes science fiction, not romance. There's none of that confusing touchy-feely stuff in her science fiction novels. Hell, she doesn't even read romance, and as for the lesbian aspect, she's not sure how to define her sexuality, but if she's a lesbian, then she's so far in the closet, she doesn't even know where the door is. Maybe Tegan could give her some pointers on writing all those sex scenes she's probably going to have to stick in there?
Tegan is thrilled to be interviewed, even by the awkward and socially-inept India. Not that Tegan views herself as anyone's fantasy - she's on crutches, and who would be interested in a cripple? Her deeply romantic fantasies are all lived out on the page. But when India suddenly asks if Tegan will join her in her writing cabin to get some serious work done, she jumps at the chance to leave her horrible basement apartment behind to concentrate on her writing in comfort and peace, with the fascinating, if rather emotionally-unavailable, India Bell.
In the gorgeous cabin on the outskirts of the small tourist town of Rain Falls, Colorado, the two women find themselves struggling with temptation and absurdity. It's a situation they never thought they'd find outside of a romance novel.
About the Author
Indie Publisher and bestselling author of the Rain Falls series, AKA Investigations series, Throwing Caution, and Pitfall, Kelli Jae Baeli enjoys a sales position in the top 5% of lesbian authors. Her writing career began as a child, and that interest in expression through words on a page blossomed into full-length works, when she became frustrated with early examples of lesbian fiction, and decided to write something she would want to read. She's been doing that ever since, authoring and producing 45 books, both non-fiction and fiction, in a variety of genres, and for both gay and straight readers. 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. Creativity comes as easily as breathing to Baeli. A talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, she also loves mixed-media art, painting, pottery, and clay sculpture, as well. Living a life around words, books, art, and music not only fulfills her, but defines her. Formerly a managing editor for two small presses, she founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, and Kind Red Ink Editing, and currently publishes under the imprints Indie Literati Press, and Lesbian Literati Press. Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, Baeli does her own book cover design, typography, and formatting, maintains an author newsletter and video journal series, and is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after eight years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing. A canny mix of businesswoman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each day relentlessly polishing her skills and feeding her muse. After three unfortunate years in New Zealand, she now makes her American home on Holiday Island, near the quaint village of Eureka Springs with her partner, Melissa.
