CENSORED: Where to buy Twin Affairs & Cursed Blessings

705Twin Affairs has been banned by Amazon since its release. The Kindle format file is available for purchase through Fantastic Fiction Publishing (where it’s ON SALE!), All Romance Ebooks and Smashwords. I’ve also been informed the epub file from Barnes and Noble also works on Kindle.

701As of this week, Cursed Blessings has been labeled as “adult material” on Amazon, which means it no longer shows up on my author page on Amazon AND it doesn’t show up if you search for it by title and by my author name. HOWEVER, it is still for sale on Amazon, but you can only access the page by direct link. This is the direct link. As with all of my books, it is also for sale through ALL major vendors.

I’m asked constantly when Twin Affairs will be released on Kindle format. It’s out, I promise. The only reason you can’t find it is because Amazon thinks they get to determine what you should be able to read. Buy links for all of my stories can always be found in the side column of the front page of my website.

If you’re a fan of books, creativity, self-expression and freedom of speech, I wholeheartedly, encourage you to NOT shop at Amazon and purchase your books direct from the publisher, or ANY other retailer. Their censorship policies are constantly expanding, severely restricting authors, publishers, cover artists, etc. Their censorship bots flag certain words, certain content, penalize and terrorize small, indie publishers. Their bots also have been cracking down on what can be shown in cover art, which is why Cursed Blessings got flagged as adult material and buried on their site. Amazon also keeps a majority of the profits from every single sale they make, with only a very small percentage leftover for the author, publisher, cover artist, editor, proofreader, etc. No other vendor does this. Because Amazon wants the monopoly over the book market, they offer modest “savings” to tempt customers, but those savings hurt the people working their asses off to produce quality products and threatening other vendors who offer similar services without the terrorizing and severe restrictions of freedom of speech and press. I know many people love to shop at Amazon because of how easy the one-click shopping is, but I promise you, there’s a huge unseen cost.

I write my books for ADULTS. I will never censor my content to appease a corporation who fancies themselves the morals and ethics police over grown adults fully capable of making choices for themselves. If you’d like to continue to see kinky, sexy, dirty, thrilling, boundary-pushing content in your books, please shop somewhere besides Amazon.

Thank you so much for reading.

Much love,
Lynn

What I’m Working On Now

I thought I’d tell you all a little about the stories I’m currently working on, as well as all of my stories in progress. If there are any in particular that you’re interested in, I’d love for you to let me know in the comments or by sending me an email! It’s wonderful motivation to keep working hard to get these stories in your hands :)

Editing Lineup / To Be Released Next:

Double Heat (Twin Ties 3):

When Evan and Brennan moved in with their boyfriends, Alek and Luka, they knew things would be complicated, but as their privacy gets eroded, and people around them begin to notice the tangled nature of the four-way relationship, coping becomes a struggle. Once Brennan leaves on a brief trip home, and Evan remains behind to enjoy the full attention of both Alek and Luka, the careful balance of things gets thrown off. Ex-boyfriends surface, haunting Evan and Brennan as regret for poor choices threatens their happiness, and the sexual freedom displayed earlier in their lives draws predators willing to use violence, coercion, mind-games and force to take what they want. Though Luka and Alek struggle to protect those they love, it soon becomes clear that the dangers surrounding them will find ways to rush in, trying to take what’s theirs. (103,000 words)

Loving the Master (The Society of Masters):

Twenty-five-year-old Dominant David Davenport, owner of private gay club, Manse, is used to people treating him as an asset instead of a human being. When the isolation his wealth mandates make him desperate for normalcy, he leaves his security team behind for a simple lunch out with a friend that changes the course of his life forever. The humble charm and naturally submissive nature of Shea Whittier, the teenage waiter who serves them, captures David’s interest, reminding him of a part of his past he’d thought lost forever. When David learns Shea to have been the victim of a mugging, unable to afford healthcare to treat his wounds and without a safe home to return to, David attempts to right the wrongs. Neither of them foresees the danger waiting for Shea as soon as he’s drawn into David’s high-security world, faced with the paranoia of David’s father, and his certainty that the past will repeat itself, threatening both Shea and David’s lives. (90,000 words; Spin-off of Bound by Lies; Ties to Deliver Us and Jack L. Pyke’s Don’t… series)

Learning from the Master (The Society of Masters):

Most things in life come easily to eighteen-year-old Jenner Parrish, who’s on track to inherit the family business, and is popular, well-liked and good looking. He has everything he could want, except when it comes to love, and sex. Closeted, lonely and desperate, he acquires an invitation to an event at a nearby private gay club, Manse. Feeling out of his element and for the first time quite shy, Jenner is unable to play the wallflower when he captures the attention of the suave, seductive owner of Manse, David Davenport. David is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is gorgeous young Jenner, who begins to realize every fantasy and wild desire could be his for the taking, if only he dares to ask and obediently serve. (12,000 words; Prequel to Bound by Lies and Loving the Master)

What I’m Writing:

(Untitled) – Paranormal/Fantasy, Hardcore BDSM, D/s – This story is about an M/M arranged marriage. I have the whole plot arc planned out in detail and 17,000 words written. It’s a kinky twist on various demands and conditions typically, historically placed upon women during marriages arranged by the betrothed couples’ parents. My short story, Cursed Blessings, was a dark, gritty look at a male pregnancy that transpired through paranormal means. Similarly, strongly in incorporating the paranormal element, this is my take on what happens when two young men are forced to participate in cultural rituals for the good of their families and their people, rather than out of love, and enter into a relationship with a distinct power dynamic, without prior knowledge of each other.

(Untitled)M/M BDSM Romance – Genderqueer, bisexual exotic dancer, Kerry, is going through an identity crisis following his breakup with trans boyfriend, Jamie. Flirtations with one of the club’s security guards – Irish, gay-curious Dom, Ewyn – leads to more, allowing Kerry to explore his submissive side for the very first time. 30,000 words written.

Sequel to Arctic Absolution – As Dixon and Jaye struggle to settle into a normal relationship without the threat of Marcus to get in the way, they think that the past is finally firmly behind them. But when Jaye is sent a reminder that being initiated into a gang, and owing people favors, means he can’t pretend the past away, Dixon must protect Jaye in terrifying new ways. 7,000 words written.

Sacred Submission (working title) – M/M BDSM Contemporary Romance; Aiden is a young man who has recently dropped out of theological school following a spiritual and identity crisis. He’s seduced by Cary, his free-spirited, artist neighbor while trying to rediscover his identity, exploring new, darker paths to happiness and fulfillment through absolute submission, the wonder of human connections and learning to trust. 30,000 words written.

Our Sins (Deliver Us 4) - Because this story will tie together the multiple stories/series, including Deliver Us, Bound by Lies, and Loving the Master, it’s currently on hold until I have less on my plate and more ability to focus on writing. Also, because Trace, Gabe and Dare will be appearing the the 4th installment of the Don’t… series by Jack L. Pyke, and Our Sins takes place after that, I’m also waiting to see how they fare :)

Blurb: Tucker Reynolds is a rising star in country music. The people from his record label tell him he’s destined to be one of the greats—but only if he fits the “good ol’ boy” image country fans expect from him. The trouble is, that’s not the kind of man’s man Tucker really wants to be. Forced into an unsavory relationship with a record executive and frustrated by his regrettably platonic relationship with his best friend and guitarist, Mags Palmer, Tucker turns to kinky sex with male prostitutes for release. Things hit Tucker’s limit when one of Tucker’s bandmates, Jess Grayville, begins to suspect what’s going on, and puts himself in danger to protect Tucker. Desperate for a way out of his troubles, Tucker realizes only honesty, love, and a true song can save himself and the man who stands by him. (M/M)

~* 4.5 STARS for MY BROTHER’S LOVER *~

“Overall I was really impressed with this story. I’ll admit, I went into it for the thrill of the taboo and the promise of lots of sexiness, but I was so pleased to see how much substance there is to this story. Kelling does a great job developing these four characters and the relationships between them. I already have the second book in the series and am really anxious to see where things go for these men. So a great story and one I really enjoyed.” – Jay, Joyfully Jay Reviews

Thank you to them for their time and feedback!!

Pre-Release Review & Release Party – Song of the Lonesome Cowboy

A pre-release review for Song of the Lonesome Cowboy has come out at My Fiction Nook. This is what they had to say…

~* 4.5 STARS *~

“Lynn Kelling does an exceptional job painting a very real picture of a downward spiral and recovery. I at once hated and loved this story. It moved me. It shattered me. I licked up every drop of sweetness and craved more. Lord knows there’s never been a more hard-earned HEA. Song of the Lonesome Cowboy is as terrifying as it is beautiful. Highly recommended for those who dare.” – Dani, My Fiction Nook
