Appetite A Cut Above the Rest The Competitive Edge Surfeit for the Senses

Whet your appetite for romance with Talya Andor’s Appetite series! Featuring rival chefs Alex and Nik, this series is full of mouth-watering descriptions (and not just of the food), sizzling (sautéing?) sexual tension, and plenty of chef-style hijinks!

  • In Book 1, A Cut Above the Rest, Alex, fresh from culinary school, takes a job in a restaurant owned by a family friend. Primed to join the ranks of the restaurant’s master chefs, he’s dismayed to learn that he’s nothing more than a kitchen lackey. Worse, his boss is none other than Nik, the beautiful, infuriating, highly talented classmate that Alex could never best—or resist.
  • In Book 2, The Competitive Edge, Alex is working hard at becoming Nik’s equal in the kitchen when a new challenge is thrust upon him. Selected to participate in a new cooking competition, Alex readily accepts… except to win, he’ll have to beat not only a handful of strangers, but also Nik, potentially killing any future they have together…
  • In Book 3, Surfeit for the Senses, with the competition behind them, Alex is determined to focus on the one thing that matters most: his budding relationship with Nik. But life is never easy, and the combined weight of family tragedy, television fame, and new and unexpected responsibilities may prove to be more than their new relationship can take…

You can buy all three books in the Appetite trilogy individually (links above) or save and buy the ebook bundle or paperback compilation!

LT3 News and Updates for July 2, 2014

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Featured Author: Talya Andor

LT3 is mixing up our content this month. July will feature a single author, rather than a handful, and we’re planning some other surprises throughout the month, so stay tuned! You can follow along on LT3’s Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or our new Google Plus.

July’s featured author is Talya Andor!

Talya Andor is a talented author who writes everything from science fiction to contemporary, fantasy to paranormal. She’s written several gay and bisexual novels and short stories for LT3, and we’re pleased to be publishing a lesbian novella from her in our upcoming Damsels in Distress collection (coming soon in February 2015!).

She’s written about professional chefs, college students, psychic twin brothers, vampires, rock stars, and more! Check out her work here, and use coupon code ANDOR at checkout to save 20% on all of her titles (anthologies included!).

(Coupon is good from now through the end of July, and can be used on ebooks or paperbacks. Collection bundles are not included.)

Talya lives in the Pacific Northwest with her girlfriend and their girl-kitty who they believe to be cutest cat in the world, and is constantly balancing a busy slate of boylove stories to write with her day job, hobbies to upkeep, and nail polishes to collect. She has been writing fiction since elementary school and progressed to guy on guy erotica during college, honing her chops on fan fiction until original fiction lured her with its siren call. She loves writing and reading, routinely geeks out over gaming and movies, and watches far too many cooking shows.

You can find Talya at her website, www.talya-andor.com; twitter, @TalyaAndor; or tumblr, http://talya-andor.tumblr.com/.

Prince Telmé Guldbrandsen has been groomed since childhood to become a Prince of the Blood and Commander of the Legion. He will be the youngest person to ever take the Blooding—if he can behave long enough to prove he can be trusted with the responsibility. But behaving is difficult when he is constantly forced to endure Korin: heir to the Reach of the House and the Temple of the Sacred Three, and the snotty brat Telmé is expected to someday marry.

Then the unthinkable happens, and the two young men are thrust into positions for which they are not ready. Facing grief, fear, mistrust, and doubting peers, they must nevertheless find a way to shoulder their new burdens and save the kingdom from the unknown threat that has already come far too close to destroying it.

There are days when Aiden wants nothing more than to leave Tristan to suffer in the messes he’s made. They’ve been through a lot, he, Tristan, and Callie, and he loves them, but Tristan still drives him to thoughts of murder.

Until Tristan goes off on a research trip, and a few days later the magic in Aiden’s tattoo stops glowing—meaning that in all likelihood Tristan is dead.

Rocking Hard: Volume 3

Less Than Three Press presents the last of three volumes of amazing stories along the theme of rock ‘n roll. Authors familiar and new combine for a collection of stories all about music and love.

Rockabye | A.F. Henley
Malcolm knows he doesn’t have much going for him. He isn’t beautiful or blessed or possess much in the way of talent. He’s a damned good chef, but he worked hard and demanded a lot of himself to get that far. If that means everyone else around him is miserable, so be it. They can meet his expectations or get out.

Darien is everything Malcolm will never be: lean, beautiful, charming, adored. He is also the man that Malcolm secretly fantasizes over—and definitely not someone Malcolm ever expected to return that interest. There is no way a rock god like Darien would ever really want a dismal, antagonistic chef.

Songs of the Monsoon | Elyse Night
Lyric is long inured to the crappy bands that cycle through Faerie’s Hollow, the club where he works as a bartender. He fully expects the latest Local Band Night to be another night of ear-bleeding hell—but then Fierce Monsoon takes the stage and blows him away. Even more intriguing are the beautiful twins on bass and drums, who make him want to forget all the reasons he prefers to keep a distance …

This story features an M/M/M relationship that includes twins.

Insanity Girls | Alex Powell
In town for just one night, punk rock star Envy chances upon Silveria, a quiet, shy university student, and ends up spending a wild night together that neither of them expected—a night neither wants to end, but uniting two extremely different worlds is much more difficult than getting lost in a moment.

Just the Beer Light to Guide Us | Ashelia McGregor
Chase and Nico have been close friends since childhood, a bond that they’ll never let anything break. Despite the adult world looming over their shoulders, they’d much rather while away their last summer getting high and listening to music. But when they learn their favorite performer, Alister Skye, will be performing in Arizona, they decide to sneak away and make the trip, come what may.

Twisted Euphoria | James L. Craig
Blaine and Chris grew up close in the foster home where they were raised. A talented singer, Blaine uses his voice and a song Chris wrote for him to get himself into the music industry, far away from the miserable life they lived. But fame and fortune are no replacement for the man he left behind, though it might be too late to get him back…

Keeping It Together | Sylvia A. Winters
Sian should be tucked up in bed when she meets Alisha Hart—beautiful, talented, and the star of a band that’s on its way up. Alisha doesn’t have to worry about curfews or homework or overprotective parents; in fact, she doesn’t seem to care about any rules at all. She makes her own, and lives life her way, something Sian can only dream of, and which draws her helplessly to Alisha. But love is complicated, and if there’s such a thing as fate, it seems dead set against them.

Exit Strategy | May Ridge
Whenever Kenzie and Hunter are together, fists fly. Hunter is all attitude, Kenzie is all snob, and whenever they get close they spark—in more ways than one. When Kenzie can no longer take the tempestuous relationship, he decides they might all be better off if he leaves the band and pursues a solo career, before the sparks catch and turn into a fire…

But Jon Kemp does not match what Raef knows about pirates, and the simple quest Raef anticipated turns out to be an epic journey. For while Jon might be a nobler man than Raef believed, he’s still a pirate. Love and loyalty are not on Jon’s agenda, and he certainly has no plans to love someone not entirely human…

Owen has been struggling with addiction since he was a teenager, but it takes a DUI involving another vehicle for him to finally face his issues. The road to recovery is a rough one, and for Owen it’s a journey made harder by bankruptcy, loneliness, and repressed memories.

His new apartment doesn’t help either. It’s small, worn, and hot as hell. The only way to reach it is a tedious stretch of stairs that seems like the final insult on top of a whole pile of misery. Thankfully, the mess comes with one bright spot: intense, pretty Sebastian, who seems to have a knack for keeping his head up and finding the beauty in everything.

In Despair

Prince Telmé Guldbrandsen has been groomed since childhood to become a Prince of the Blood and Commander of the Legion. He will be the youngest person to ever take the Blooding—if he can behave long enough to prove he can be trusted with the responsibility. But behaving is difficult when he is constantly forced to endure Korin: heir to the Reach of the House and the Temple of the Sacred Three, and the snotty brat Telmé is expected to someday marry.

Then the unthinkable happens, and the two young men are thrust into positions for which they are not ready. Facing grief, fear, mistrust, and doubting peers, they must nevertheless find a way to shoulder their new burdens and save the kingdom from the unknown threat that has already come far too close to destroying it.

Open Submissions: Serial Fiction Line

Fairy Tales submissions

LT3 is actively seeking LGBTQ submissions for our popular serial fiction line. LT3’s serial fiction runs 4-6 stories at a time, with biweekly updates (2-3 stories update on week 1 and the other 2-3 stories update on week 2, ad nauseum). In particular, we’re looking for stories that:

  • Are at least 35,000 (ideally 50,000) word range, but no longer than 200,000 words long. (Note: fairy tale serials can be shorter; we are looking for 10k-50k length for fairy tales.)
  • Be suited to being broken down to 4,000-5,000 word sections.
  • Be extremely engaging. Serials run for months at a time and should keep the reader interested for those months.
  • Be complete. LT3 does not run incomplete stories as serials.

Stories can be any genre and any flavor of LGBTQ. Once a title finishes its serial run, it’s moved to the LT3 Book Market to be sold as an ebook (and paperback if long enough).

So what do you get for serial stories? Well, for general serial stories, you get…

  • 10% of gross subscription sales from while your serial is running. (LT3 has over 500 regular serial subscribers.)
  • Regular ebook and paperback royalties when your book is moved to the LT3 Book Market. (40% royalty through LT3, 35% through third-party distributors, 20% for paperbacks)

Fairy tale serials are slightly different, as we accept shorter stories and compile them together to sell them as an anthology once we compile enough for a print volume. (See: Fairytales Slashed.) If you’re running a fairy tale serial with us, you get:

  • One-time payment of $100
  • 5% of gross subscription sales while your fairy tale is running.
  • Author copies of the ebook and paperback versions of the anthology your book is included in.

Interested? Check out LT3’s submission page for all details, and if you’ve got any questions, don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

To clear out stock with older covers, LT3 is offering the paperback versions of The Missing Butterfly by Megan Derr and Stolen Hearts by Sasha L. Miller for 50% off. Supplies are limited, so get your copies while you can!

More Than a Hero

Dale has more than enough work to keep him busy: papers to write, a group project, chores, class, and a cute, if lazy, classmate to flirt with. He definitely does not have time to focus on becoming a real superhero, especially when his every attempt ends in frustration, due mostly to his main rival, a local superhero who insists Dale has no idea what he’s doing and should just give up.

Deadline Approaching: Damsels In Distress

Damsels In Distress

The deadline for LT3’s lesbian collection call, Damsels in Distress is May 31, 2014! Get your F/F (or F/F/F, etc.) stories in before the end of May!

Damsels in Distress — An F/F Collection — How does a damsel handle a dangerous situation? That depends on the damsel. Some use swords. Others words. Some will fight their way, and others seduce. Some stand their ground and others judge it more prudent to run. The one thing they don’t do is sit around and wait for someone else to solve their problems and claim them as a prize. Less Than Three Press invites you to submit stories of women who can find their own way out of trouble.

Now Available! Won’t Back Down

Won't Back Down

MMA. Jousting Knights. Dueling swordsman. Gladiators. They do it for the money, for the love, and the necessity. They aren’t afraid of bruises, blood, and broken bones. Less Than Three Press presents a collection of stories about people who won’t back down even when the whole world seems stacked against them.

Heart’s Tournament by Mell Eight—Torn apart by the guilds vying for control of the city, twin brothers Keel and Saar must learn to fight, and win, if they hope to reunite—but winning might be exactly what tears them apart forever.

Note: This story contains twincest.

Champion by Andrea Speed—Kell is the first Human heavyweight champion in the Ultimate Fighting League of the Unified Worlds, where Humans are considered the lowest of the low. His presence could make a difference for his race, especially with his lover contending for featherweight champion—if they survive.

Canis Project by Kish Swanson—There is no one Liam loves more than his twin brother Alex. In the eyes of society, they probably love each other too much, but that’s never stopped them. When Alex is brutally taken, however, it does stop the police from investigating. Then a stranger offers Liam a chance for revenge against the genetically-engineered monsters who murdered his brother…

Note: This story contains twincest.

Experiment Number Six by Mina MacLeod—When his mission goes sideways, sniper Jason Slate wakes up in a strange hospital, drugged out of his mind, and captive of a shrewd terrorist organization. He’s rescued by the military and placed in the care of Eric Archer, a warrant officer charged with helping him recover. But did the terrorists lose Jason… or let him go?

Knight & Novice by Cassandra Pierce—Renulf’s tedious days of copying manuscripts is interrupted by two unlikely visitors to the Sanctuary: a rampaging, troll-like thief, and the knight who slays him. In thanks for his assistance, Lord Bazel is invited to stay at the Sanctuary for a few days. But when night falls, he asks Renulf to secretly translate a strange manuscript…

Fight to Finish by Diana Sheridan—Maltroos has always been proud to be a Pledger and fight against other swordsmen for the amusement of the king. But he clings to the promise of his secret lover, Prince Saxtry, who vows that one day he will abolish the brutal duels. Then the king announces a Grand Competition—and that all fights will be to the death.

Rule Breaker by Archer Kay Leah—Gren has a very simple list of rules: no attachments, no loyalty, he’ll fight for anyone willing to pay. His only exception to the rule is Tracel, a healer who is also his casual lover. When she is taken hostage, however, Gren realizes he may have broken his rules, and he’ll have to break a few more to get her back.

A Little Magic by Annabelle Kitch—When Thrim is taken to the south, he believes he can sink no lower. The slavers took his dignity, the guards took his book of magic and the arena will take his life. Then an unexpected friendship earns Thrim a new enemy, who uses Thrim’s own magic to shrink him to the size of a rat and leave him even more helpless.

A Good Man by Caitlin Ricci—When Emory loses his job he’s afraid of what his boyfriend will think. A friend at the gym offers a solution: go one round in an upcoming fight and he’ll give Emory a job training the guys. But Emory hasn’t been in the ring for years, and getting back into fighting won’t make his boyfriend any happier than the lost job.

Gladiatrix by S.S. Skye—When Daelan is sold to the kingdom to pay off her father’s debts, she knows she is bound for the Games—and not likely to last long. When she arrives, however, she unexpectedly finds she has a patron who seems determined that Daelan come out of the Games alive…

Feint of Heart by Freddie Milano—For the past six years, Cal has been trying to gain the attention of Sir Taren Veretti outside of training sessions, but Taren refuses to see him as anything but a squire. He’s forced to set aside his amorous goals, however, when he stumbles across a plot that could ruin Veretti and everything they’ve worked for.

Chasing Coyote by August Aimes—Jove has been chasing his quarry for more than a year, but infamous thief and magic worker Coyote always manages to stay one step ahead—until suddenly he isn’t, and Jove is way more tangled up than he ever wanted, in ways he never expected…
