Abby Hayes Guest Post – Strange Inspiration

People often ask where the inspiration for your stories comes from. For me, it could really be anywhere. I see someone interesting walking down the street and I start making up stories about their life. What? You don’t? LOL I can hear a true story, I can listen to a song, I can watch a TV show and hate it, I can see a picture…I just never know. The easiest is to write a short for a themed anthology. Those calls for stories always get me. A story starts in my mind before I can stop it.
Guess the neatest story behind a story I have though is how I came up with my novella, Finding Paradise. It was a multi-step process that really ironed out the plot, but it was a rather unique journey I think.
I work in an office on a college campus in my real life, and often listen to the ladies there – the one’s who are older than me, complain about married life with kids, the lack of a sex life, etc. These frequent conversations of which I listen to, offer smiles about, but can’t really participate in, often get me wondering how their lives could change. To think ahead, to wonder where I will be in ten or twenty years, always gets me.
I heard about a facebook hook up, and a contemporary story idea started brewing. I mean we hear all the time about marriages in trouble thanks to Facebook, but I wanted to give it a different twist, and a happy ending.
What really set the plot though was when I heard one of the ladies where I work mention this song that her mother used to listen to. She had stumbled on it on a blog. It seemed like this particular song had affected many in its time from the way they spoke of all their mothers listening to it. One lady who was a young mom when the song came out said it practically affected a whole generation of woman. So I listened to the song with them, and then several times later that night actually. There is just something about the tone of it. Anyway, the idea of the song started to form Nevaeh‘s back story. By the way, the song was I’ve Never Been To Me by Charlene. Here is the video I watched on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhQWND9jKDA&list=FLqMuXAjWK2Aas0U4heYRrZQ&index=35&feature=plpp_video

I know that is a lot of different things, but it all rolled together in my brain, and by the time I got to the computer, the story practically wrote itself. I had my couple who had become sexual strangers after having kids. Then, thanks to the song, she had a friend who had lived the opposite life, one free, sexually and otherwise. Bring them back in touch with each other via Facebook, and yep, I had a story, and the multiple partner situations and sexual fantasies that I love to write.
Interested to know how this all came together?
First, how about an excerpt of Finding Paradise:
With the full moon illuminating the room, Kelly laid in wait for her husband, literally like a bitch in heat. With a steadfast determination, she prepared herself to pounce on the man. To keep her going, she’d sucked down enough coffee after dinner to make her buzz like she had batteries.
When he came in the room, lust made her eyes practically water. He must’ve noticed, because he stopped mid-stride to smirk at her with one eyebrow raised.
“What’s up with you? You look like the cat that ate the canary – guilty and thrilled with yourself at the same time.”
“I want my husband. Is that so wrong?”
“Ah, no, but I’m a little curious as to why tonight. You haven’t been awake at this hour in years.”
She shrugged, gave him a half smile.
“What did you do today? Watch porn while the kids napped?”
“Better, chatted with an old friend on Facebook again.” Immediately she became cognizant of her mistake in blurting such a thing out. She wasn’t sure how he’d react to his wife being turned on by another woman’s life.
“What? What friend? And, what do you mean again? What the hell is going on, Kelly? What the fuck is going on here while I’m at work?”
“Nate, calm down. It’s a her, for one, and old neighbor. And, I like her. And, she’s lived a life better than any romance novel I’ve ever read. I’d heard rumors, and I begged her to share her stories with me. She is refreshingly open, uninhibited in the telling of her past. We’ve chatted twice, yesterday and today, for about a half hour each.”
“This woman tells you sex stories over the chat on Facebook? What kind of woman is she?”
“Quiet down, or you’ll wake the kids.”
“You’re scaring me. What’s happened to my wife?”
“She’s right here. What’s the difference if I read erotic stories and go to sleep fantasizing, or if I hear a story from a friend and try to seduce, although obviously poorly, my own husband?”
“A whole hell of a lot. Erotic? You read erotic novels?”
Yes!” she said, putting fists on her hips.
He shook his head. “First I’ve heard of it. Anyway, something’s changed, because those novels, whatever type they are, have never made you so horny that you stayed up for sex.”
Kelly started to cry. “A lot you know. I’ve tried! You come in to bed so late. I’m so tired. And, what the hell is so wrong with a woman deciding it is time to want that part of her relationship back with her husband? Now that I’m a mom, am I supposed to never initiate sex again? Were you going to be happy with that for the rest of our lives? Isn’t it time we got back some part of our sex life?”
“Oh, Kelly, come on. Don’t cry. I’m sorry, but you’ve got to see why I’d be worried. Why didn’t you tell me before now if you wanted me? I miss you too. It’s not you wanting sex; it’s the other woman. I’m worried. I’m jealous. And, I’m not even sure why, damn it.”
“You want me? You miss me?” She sniffed and smiled.
“Want you? Fuck, Kelly, I ache for you. I’m in misery most of the time because we’re not together. But, I knew you were tired. I didn’t want to be another job for you to complete each day like Dan’s wife told him he was.”
“Dan’s wife said that to him?”
“Yeah, he told me at work a few months after Meghan was born to go harder on the basketball court and easier on you.”
“What kind of idiots do you hire? And, man I felt sorry for that slime yesterday when he posted about his workload on Facebook.”
“Facebook again.” He shook his head as if to clear his mind, and then opened his eyes up wide when he was done. “Specifically, I hired Dan to create and manage websites. I didn’t interview any of my employees about their marriages. Dan was trying to be helpful in his own way. But what about this Nevaeh? She chats with you twice, some woman you grew up with, who I’ve never heard you talk about that I can recall, and she’s telling you about sex… with her husband? Is she married? Or, with others?”
“Others, but she tells the same stories to her husband, and they role play to act out their fantasies. Do you have fantasies, Nate?”
“What? Do you have fantasies? Fantasies I don’t know about?”
“I’ve been reading quite a lot at night. I’ve developed some new ones.”
“Really? These erotic books I never heard about again?”
“You’ve never once asked me what I was reading,” she spat.
“You have a point. What are you reading?”
“Erotic romances, stories with the sex spelled out. Currently one about a vampire,” she challenged him.
“Okay. So, fantasies? You plan on sharing sometime?” He crawled on the bed, a smile easing the tight lines of his jaw.
“You want to hear them?”
“Are you kidding me? Of course! But, not now.”
His mouth crushed down over hers. Her heart skipped a beat, and then continued its fast pace from their fight. His tongue pushed between her lips, swept her mouth in militant fashion, dominated.
He fell down over her. “It’s been so long.”
The seam of her nightgown tore from his tug. Not that it was a particularly sexy one, but it didn’t have Oscar the Grouch on it to amuse her son either. Her hands went for his pants, battling the belt with short, hasty movements. Once it opened, she popped off his button yanking on his pants. He helped her free him. His erection poking between her thighs suggested a taste of heaven. No foreplay, yet she was ready for him. He pushed in, and her inner walls trembled at the abrupt change.
Contractions began in seconds. He rode her hard. His eyes shut tight, his mouth fell open and his heart hammered against hers. Her nails dig into the muscles bunching under her fingers. When her stomach tightened, she cried out. Her inner walls clamped down around his hard cock. He stifled the sound with another branding kiss.
“Come with me,” he demanded against her lips.
She let go, felt her body hum as his warm seed filled her. Their bodies slammed against each other, furious, needy. Flames shot from her core to her limbs until she shattered around him.
“I promise you better next time. This time, I just had to have you,” Nate panted.
Tears slipped from her eyes. “I needed to be taken.”
“Tomorrow, will you share your fantasies with me?”
“All you have to do is ask.”
“My god, fantasies,” he said as he lay down beside her, butt to butt. “My erection is already making a reappearance wondering what they could be, I’ll have you know.”
She giggled. “You’ll just have to wait.”
“Wait, as in you’ve another chat session scheduled with Nevaeh tomorrow first?”
Her chest tightened, and her breathing came in hard gasps.
“Actually, she’s flying in tomorrow, early morning from New York for the reunion this weekend. She has to work on her mother’s house first, getting it ready to sell. Her mom died this year. I’m going to ask her to take me shopping this week. I need her expertise on a few of the necessary items for those fantasies.”

Reviews:
“Warning: please refrain from reading Finding Paradise while in the presence of others, as frequent relief may be required. Holy smokes this book is HOT! From Nevaeh’s stories to Kelly, to the women experimenting with one another in a sex shop dressing room, Finding Paradise is one book that I will be reading over and over again instead of putting in a sexy movie. Ms. Hayes has done a few remarkable things with this book: first, she’s written the online chatting scenes as they would be written by any one of us, with a lot of shorthand and some “real life” cringing and questioning after typing something off the wall. Secondly, Ms. Hayes has really included something for everyone in this short story, I won’t ruin the surprise by discussing the amazingly indulgent final sex scene, but let’s just say my husband and I may have to have a serious talk about sex pretty soon! Both the erotic and the mundane are terrifically portrayed in Finding Paradise, and I truly hope that Ms. Hayes decides to put out a follow up book with more tantalizing and playful encounters between Kelly, Nevaeh and their husbands. For exquisite sex scenes, amazing writing and the “real talk” feel for online chat, Finding Paradise is certainly deserving of a JERR Silver Star Award. Bottom line, find your own bit of paradise and pick up Finding ParadiseASAP!” – Silver Star Award at Just Erotic Romance Reviews (5/5 Stars)

”Finding Paradise is a scorching hot read… Kelly and Nevaeh, as well as their respective husbands, are very believable characters. Ms. Hayes has portrayed them in a way that any reader can relate to the emotions and actions of them… Finding Paradise is a unique story that will sit on my shelves for years to come. There is a lot of passion and excitement as some characters explore new sexual adventures and others share their adventures. This story is one of those rare finds that comes across as unique, sexy, hot, and adventurous all rolled into very few pages!” – 4/5 Paddles at BDSM Book Reviews, Reviewed by Star
“This is the first book I have read by Abby Hayes and to say I was intrigued with where the story was going is an understatement. I was expected a little girl on girl, perhaps a menage but a full fledged partner swamp and orgy…I was tickled beyond belief. Hayes built believable characters with Kelly and Navaeh, Nate and Hayden. All in all, Hayes approach was fun, lively and gave a little insight into how a couple can re-kindle a romance by introducing safe avenues into their love life.” – 4/5 Cups at Coffee Beans & Love Scenes Reviews

Three years ago when Shannon Murphy opened her bar, Rage on the Water on the West Bank of Cleveland, her boyfriend at the time – a guy she thought she would spend the rest of her life with – dumped her that year on Valentine’s Day. Never a big fan of the holiday before the breakup, she now loathes it.

Having gone through a bit of a wild phase these past three years, she has given up dating altogether. Instead she’s been exploring her wilder side, in her apartment above the bar, where her kinks and wanton interests will prevail.

This year on Valentine’s Day, a conversation with her long time guy friend, Mark, lands her in a situation beyond any she has experienced before. Mark wants to change the way things have been between them, take the “friends with benefits” sex to the next level, but Shannon shares none of his feelings on the matter. Or so she tells herself.

While ignoring Mark’s changing intentions toward her – like his invitations to go on an actual date – she’s more than a bit excited to play dominatrix and spank a few asses.

Tonight Shannon, staring as Ms. Shan, has four bodies to play with. She goes with each whim of her body and mind, but will they expose her? Will she be able to still play her role well? Or will she give in to all that scares her? With bodies exposed, asses red, it is truly her heart on the line…
