Sequels...or something new?

Although I've been crazy-busy at the evil day job and working a lot of overtime, I've been itching to start a new book (or story).

What are you in the mood for? I can and have written to order. Might do it again.

Do you want more erotica/erotic romance and kink - something like Not His Kiss to Take? If you liked that book, was it because of erotic elements or contemporary storyline? Or just Jamie's sass?

BDSM? Or a sequel to A Thread of Deepest Black?

A sequel to Just Lucky that Way? My imagined plot has Mac doing something you wouldn't believe. I can't believe it myself!

Or do you like sci-fi and want to know what the secret is in the sequel to Stranded by Lies?

I would also be happy to revisit Winter and Erik from As He Watches...

OR is there something, some trope, you'd like to read that seldom gets written? I don't do non-con or slavery, but I'm pretty open otherwise. Mmm...maybe not mpreg either...or rockstars...

So if there's something you'd like to see, speak up, otherwise I'll go amuse myself writing smutty m/f and young adult novels.

Send me an email or post here.

Just Lucky That Way Is Here


Just Lucky That Way has been published to Amazon! It takes anywhere from 12 hours to 3 days to show up on the website, but I pressed the magic "publish" button. I will be uploading it Smashwords sometime over the next week and from there it will be available at other retailers such as iTunes/iBooks. If you love buying your books at All Romance eBooks, please leave me a comment here or on Facebook, and I will see about getting publisher status there so I can upload it for sale.

Once the book is live, I will post an excerpt here (Chapter 1). Price on Amazon is $3.99US.






Fortune smiled on Chance Ryan the day he was born and blessed him with an endless supply of good luck. Now he uses that luck working for the Arsenal, a secret federal organization made up of powerful psychics, including his hot, kick-ass partner and a clairvoyant, dragon-lady of a boss with a killer hairpin. 

So with all that good fortune, why in the hell is everything suddenly going wrong?

Duncan “Mac” MacDonnell’s prescient ability tells him his charismatic partner is in serious trouble. When Chance shows up unexpectedly on the run from a man he claims has no face, and bearing a magicked, two-thousand-year-old coin, Mac finds himself unprepared for just how deep that trouble goes. 

For two years the Arsenal has been hunting an impossibly lucky thief and his stolen cache of charmed and cursed items. The unexpected reappearance of the missing coin thrusts Mac and Chance into a danger no psychic could have foretold, and reveals the true nature behind a horrifying crime not even time can erase.

But even as they pursue the mysterious thief, the thief stalks them. He wants Chance’s luck for himself and will stop at nothing to get it. Pitted together against an ancient enemy, and knowing any day could be their last, Mac and Chance finally acknowledge their mutual attraction. But they may have waited too long. Dark forces threaten to tear both them and the Arsenal apart, and destroy any chance they have to find their happily-ever-after.

Just Lucky that Way is Finished!



Just Lucky that Way is finally finished and has been sent off to the editor. Whew!

It's also a full length book now, and after edits, should finish around 76,000 words. Now it's time to work on a cover - it's fun and nerve-wracking at the same time, but one of my favorite things to do. 

I'm working on a blurb at the moment and will post it when it's finalized so you will at least know what it's about. I can tell you it's m/m (of course), friends to lovers, paranormal (psychics), alternate reality(ish), and easy on the sexy-times (not sweet though-hell no). So if you're looking for a lot of story, and you like the themes above, this might be the book for you!

Just Lucky that Way will be available on Amazon, followed by other retailers.

Just Lucky That Way Update


Now that my inner ear issue has resolved itself and the vertigo has gone (and good riddance), I'm back to working on my m/m paranormal novella Just Lucky That Way.

Don't have a definitive date just yet, but I'm aiming to have it out by Halloween, unless real life gives me any more grief. Kids are also going back to school soon - I've forgotten what peace and quiet is.

Will update post as I go.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

A story hint - Chinese Lucky Coins

Just Lucky that Way



I couldn't help myself.  I have no spine.  I caved.

I took a story prompt again this year.

But late.  So I'm going to have to write fast to make my deadline...

The working title is Just Lucky that Way.  It's going to be a contemporary, urban fantasy thriller.  Well, I'm going to try with the "thriller" part, seeings how I'm a more character-driven writer.  But I have plans! And a plot! And a hot man in a kilt! No BDSM this year, though, at the prompter's request. But they didn't say anything about no kink...

I'll post links and an excerpt when it's ready to go, sometime this summer.



Also hope to finish the rest of Stranded by Lies while I'm between Evil Day Jobs, and possibly, the next segment of As He Watches (but that's less likely with that pesky Real Life intruding all the time).

Any requests?

Cliffhangers and Sequels

I hate cliffhangers.  Really hate them.  I never stop wondering - what happened next? Did good triumph over evil? Did the boy get the boy (or girl/shifter/tentacle monster) and live happily ever after? 

So I have to admit feeling a little guilty for leaving the ending for Stranded by Lies at the point I did - I had planned to finish the story after the next scene (which still would have been a cliffhanger), but due to time constraints, I decided I would rather use the rest of the time available editing what I had, rather than trying to rush through the next part, just to finish where I wanted.  Sadly, I am a novel writer, not a short story writer (yes, even though Lies is 45,000 words, for me, that's a short story) and my ideas always seem to grow the more I write.  For this reason, I have decided I won't participate in the Don't Write in the Closet event again next year.  Actually, I have decided not to write anymore, period.

That said, I was wondering if anyone would like me to finish Stranded by Lies? (or hey, possibly even As he Watches) Let me know, as I might dust off my keyboard once again.  I'm not sure when it would be ready, or how I would make it available, but I'd likely combine the two parts and publish it on Smashwords.  Free, of course.

If you're interested, let me know - you can leave a comment, send me an email to finnmarlowe@yahoo.ca, or find me on Facebook or Goodreads.

Thanks, and happy reading!
