Sneak peek! Null (By the Numbers prologue — erotic contemporary fantasy)

By-the-Numbers-cover-white-to-colorHappy holidays!

Wow. I apologize for disappearing this fall — I promise it wasn’t on purpose. I got caught up in a huge writing project that turned out to be two of them — about two-hundred thousand words, of which my Friendly Menage fantasy  By the Numbers was the last chunk.

Turns out that this and the other 150K+ didn’t play together well. I still want to publish that other piece — I haven’t decided whether it’s a YA fantasy adventure/romance or a NA erotic fantasy, and either way it needs MORE written. 

So I decided to release By the Numbers as a stand-alone piece of erotic contemporary fantasy. 

At that point I knew I needed a prologue. I posted one over a year ago… but that piece no longer fit. So I wrote this short intro to the world of By the Numbers.

I’d love to know what you think! I’ll post some more chapters here over the next couple of weeks.

Prologue — Null

It’s the the world’s oldest story: A girl, her fireman, and her other fireman.

Visitor-collection-1-cover-800When Lea heads off to Atlanta for a job interview, all she’s thinking about is the work. Well, and Sean, her best friend’s brother. Sean, the tall, muscular firefighter. With the gentle Southern drawl and the wicked smile. Whose couch she’s going to be sleeping on.

Well, actually, whose couch she hopes very much she won’t be sleeping on. But it turns out that Andy, Sean’s roommate, is another, equally hot Southern firefighter, and so when a visitor – or perhaps two – joins Lea on that couch, it sparks a series of events that none of them could possibly have foreseen.

But that none of them regrets. Not even a little bit.

This collection contains the first four installments in The Visitor Saga:

  1. The Visitor
  2. The Visitor Comes Home
  3. The Visitor Comes Again
  4. The Visitor Goes to Work

(MF, MMF menage a trois. Bisexuality. Explicit language and scenes of sexuality between consenting adults. Adult readers only.)

Juliet Takes Off (Juliet Takes Flight #2) – Free Story!

Juliet Takes Off (Juliet Takes Flight #2) – Free Story!

Juliet Takes Off Un-Banned!

UN-BANNED!

Free! FREEFREEFREE!

In its infinite wisdom, Amazon has decided to give awayJuliet Takes Off,” the second story in my Juliet Takes Flight series, which last year it briefly decided not to sell at all.

Go figure!

In any case, I thought if they’re going to do it, why not follow suit! It’s one of my favorites among my own stories, and I’m happy to be able to share the goodness. 😉

The sequel to “Juliet Takes Stage,” it’s the story of how Allison (the Juliet of the title) got together with her teacher and Romeo, Ken. Jordan, who becomes very important later in the series, shows up too. 🙂

(Just so no one is surprised: this story is around 10,000 words long and contains scenes of sexually explicit M/F erotic romance between adults over the age of 18, UST, and sexual initiation. It is for adult readers only!)

Happy Birthday, Allison — (FFM sneak preview #2 from Juliet Takes Charge)

Happy Birthday, Allison — (FFM sneak preview #2 from Juliet Takes Charge)

Here’s another forspeis of my most recent story, Juliet Takes Charge!

Juliet Takes Charge by KD West|Model: Mary CynWhen this unassuming Juliet (Allison) asks her lovers to join her in a threesome for her birthday, she has no way of knowing just what it is that they are all going to discover.

A sneak preview from K.D. West’s newest story, Juliet Takes Charge, a crossover between the Juliet Takes Flight and Friendly Ménage series!

In Juliet Takes the Floor, the previous installment, Allison proposed a threesome with her lovers: her best friend Jordan and their one-time teacher Ken.

But is she ready for what she’s asked for? And will Ken and Jordan play along?

After reminding herself just how good her boyfriend and girlfriend each makes her feel, Allison approaches her much-anticipated birthday (and birthday present) more than a little excited, and more than a little terrified.

What happens will shock and surprise all three of them. Jordan, who’s always got all of the answers, and Ken, her teacher in so many ways, are looking to Allison.

It’s time for Juliet to take charge.

Happy Birthday, Allison

West is now available for pre-order exclusively on Amazon in advance of its release this Wednesday.  The next (and next-to-last) installment in West’s Juliet Takes Flight series explores what happens when Allison (whom her lover and former teacher Ken calls Juliet) gets exactly what she asked for — and more than she bargained for.

But is she ready for what she’s asked for? And will her former teacher and her BFF play along?

About K.D. West:

K.D. West is an Amazon best-selling author of contemporary short fiction, a teacher, and a performer living in a small suburb of a big city in the American West:

“Not a huge amount to say — I’m an author of steamy stories who happens to be a teacher; these things don’t mix well in public, so I tend to be fairly quiet about real life in my blogging. I am, however, interested in all sorts of things — books, writing, theater, mythology, and, obviously, erotica! I’m a huge reader of genre fiction — mostly mysteries and fantasy, but also science fiction and historical romance.”

West is working on two intertwined series involving a young woman and her older lover (the Juliet Takes Flight and Erotic Tales: Letters to Allison stories), a series of stories about friends discovering that they can become much more (Friendly Ménage Tales), and a series of stories that the Brothers Grimm might have collected, if there had been traditional tales where the heroine got the princess (Sapphic Fairytales). Also on the way: By the Numbers, an erotic paranormal/urban fantasy novel involving a long-lost friend coming all but literally back from the dead, and showing a happily married couple just what they’d been missing.

Three for Three by K.D. West
On Sale Now!

It’s nice that it’s erotica, but even nicer when the person behind the word processor really knows how to create believable characters and situations, and then gets them off—explosively. — K.C. Cave

When do friendship, sex, and love intersect? 

Three of K.D. West’s steamiest, most popular tales, collected for the first time:

  • Truth & Games: Felicity, Ben, and Aaron have been friends for years. During a rainy-day get-together over margaritas, Felicity challenges her men to a game that will bring things to a whole new level. A tale of friendship, romance, and thinking outside the lines.
  • The Visitor: Lea’s got a four-alarm fire burning and she knows just who she wants to put it out. Or does she? Lea is in Atlanta for a job interview, and her best friend’s brother, Sean the firefighter, is happy to give her a place to sleep. But his is the bed she’d rather sleep in. Or perhaps it’s his roommate Andy’s? And when a visitor comes to her that night… Well, who is she to be picky if it’s one, the other, or…? A tale of sexy firefighters, a mystery lover, and embracing the unknown — literally!
  • Over the Top: Danny and Suzie, Luz and Jamie – the four had been planning for over a year on heading up after graduation to the cabin by the lake. Two couples, doing what couples do. But that was before Danny and Suzie decided to be “mature” and break it off. And so now it’s one couple. And Danny. And Danny’s getting frustrated. A tale of desire, frustration, and a friendly, helping… mouth.
  • Bonus! The Trouble with Triplets, Pt. I: Allison has been teasing her lover and former teacher Ken with the idea of a threesome. Ken has another lesson he’d like to impart. (A preview of a story from the Erotic Tales: Letters to Allison series

(MMF ménage à trois three-way sexuality; includes some male bisexuality. For adult readers only)

Have I mentioned its also available in paperback? Also as an audiobook, narrated by the ever-wonderful Milo Churchcutt? Get ’em while they’re hot!

In other news, poking around Amazon’s AuthorCentral can be edifying. Some things I’ve learned:

  • One of the places where my books sell best? Salt Lake City. Didn’t see that coming!
  • I am currently the #537th best selling author of contemporary fiction on the Kindle Store. That’s nice but… doesn’t seem right. (FYI — Amazon’s rankings are all about number of units sold, not revenue, so purveyors of $0.99 short stories will tend to have a bit of an edge of commercial publisher of full-length books priced $9.99 and up, which is how my story Truth & Games ended up beating out Alice Munro’s collection Dear Life a while back, when the story first hit the best-seller lists.)
  • #473 in Erotica, which is also nice, and feels a bit less weird.
  • #2034 in Contemporary Romance and — this one was a shock — #2572 in Fantasy. I had no idea how that happened until I remembered Two Candles and Rose & Lily, my sapphic fairytales. Which Amazon in its infinite wisdom has categorized as SFF. Go figure.
  • Stupid people are stupid. When a series of stories are all subtitled “MMF Ménage” and warn for bisexuality, it’s not terribly sharp to be shocked — SHOCKED! — that there might be, you know, sexual contact between the two guys involved. It’s really not nice to blame your idiocy on the author. It’s downright mean to blame it on the author twice. Though I at least appreciate that she bought all four stories in the series. 😉

Wow! Great review of Juliet Takes First!

Wow! Great review of Juliet Takes First!

Wow! Great review of Juliet Takes First by Sylvie Storm on EreadErotica.com:

Juliet Takes First by KD West

Strong recommend. There is this one part where our teacher loses his wife in a heart-breaking and gripping scene, and it is a brave little thing to include, and a key part of our male character’s psyche and experience. I love these little heart-breakers, they remind me of stories that mess with my heart in great romance, and I hate them and love them at the same time. This is a very well-done story of how a relationship between three people develops, and I love the twisted and turning path it took through their lives. The sex is great too, and I loved it.

A nice job on this one, and this is one that will stick with me in my thoughts. Great stories do that, and this is one of those. Nice job.

Sneak peek: The Visitor Goes to Work!


The Visitor Goes to WorkHere’s a peek at The Visitor Goes to Work, the next installment in my stories about Lea and her two Southern firemen, Sean and Andy!

Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?

Lea’s always taken pride in a job well done. Sean and Andy take pride in Lea doing well, and pleasure in doing Lea well.

As she begins her life in Atlanta in earnest, Lea asks herself if her arrangement with Sean and Andy might not be too much of a good thing. And when they ask for more, are they crossing the line from a friendly threesome… to a friendly ménage?

Never one to take things lying down, Lea gets down to business.

The fourth installment in the Visitor series:

  1. The Visitor
  2. The Visitor Comes Home
  3. The Visitor Comes Again
  4. The Visitor Goes to Work
  5. The Visitor Entertains
  6. The Visitor Takes a Trip
  7. The Visitor Has Company

(M/M/F, some male bisexuality. Explicit language and scenes of sex between consenting adults. Adult readers only.) Continue reading
