Galveston, Tx. -- Heber Taylor's recently released book King Fisher is available in print and as ebooks. King Fisher is the story of an 1800s southwest Texas gunslinger who challenged cattle rustlers on both sides of the Texas border.

But for his efforts, he was pursued by a Texas Ranger.

Also available by Heber Taylor is, The Old Farm, a fictional representation of life in East Texas during the US depression of the early 1900s. He writes passionately about the lives of people who struggled to survive a time of too few resources but a great deal of determination.

Texas Gulf Coast –


            New romance writer Ela Bell makes her debut this year by releasing three novellas. Ms. Bell, a writer of long standing and former college professor, published the three short works under Narrative Magic, which handles writers working within various genres.

The three books, “Heat: An Erotic Romance,” “Hot: An Erotic Romance,” and “Desire at Sea” can be purchased as ebooks at various ebooks outlets, such as ibooks, Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes and Noble’s Nook and several other ebook retailers.

Bell wrote the three books following an interest in texts such as “Fifty Shades of Gray.” However, she says the books are not similar to E.L. James’s work.

“The women in my books are ‘agentic’ in that they express courageousness, independence, competitiveness and assertiveness,” Bell said. “I began with the first novel thinking that I might be as sexually innovative as James; however, as I wrote it, I realized that I need to write a work that I would read. That meant I needed to make the sex easier to get to for readers.

“One of my favorite writers has been Bertrice Small. I noticed that in her more contemporary modern erotica, the characters encounter some conflicts, but ultimately, we the readers get the sex – not as a tease – but soon,” she said.

“Though I enjoy reading historical romances, when I’m ready for something a little more raw and immediate, I look for contemporary erotica. I noticed that even in those works, the writers sometimes teased the reader before the sex was offered. So I wrote the first two novellas with sex scenes early in the narrative.”

Bell admits that the story lines are rather simplistic for “Heat” and “Hot,” but intentionally wrote the pieces in this manner to offer the reader the juicy parts immediately.

“’Heat’ and ‘Hot’ both have female characters as the lead protagonists,” she said. “The male characters figure in prominently, but not as well as the female characters.

Val and Brice feature as central characters in “Heat,” while Sadie and Spenser take the spotlight in “Hot.”

“Each piece is written in third person so that we can see into the minds of the principal characters,” Bell said. “Also, the female characters in ‘Heat’ and ‘Hot’ know each other. Their close friendship is the catalyst for their sexual explorations.”

The third novel in her three works, “Desire at Sea,” features a woman who is also loosely associated with the previous two women. However, Kara is not from the same class or living the same kind of life as the other two women. Her male counterpart, Alex, plays a subdued but powerful role as a sea captain. This makes an interesting contrast to Kara’s troubled past. In spite of this, Kara evinces her own brand of power in overcoming obstacles to her happiness.

All three books are available online and can be purchased for under $5 at various ebook outlets. Ms. Bell plans to offer the books as paperbacks.

Ms. Bell will give free copies of her books to readers who sign up for her newsletter or offer a review. Write to her at
