Hey, Joe by KC Kendricks

March 28, 2015

It's a brave new world out there! Just in time for My Sexy Saturday (#MSS85), I've dipped my fingers into indie publishing. After having over sixty books published I thought I was competent enough to put out a short story on my own. Finding the photo I turned into the cover helped a lot, too. I saw that picture and I knew I had a story for that guy. 

Here are seven sexy paragraphs from my first indie story, Hey, Joe.


“Riley.” He tapped my hip. “Riley?”

I groaned and made an attempt to slide to the side and get off him. He aided my effort by giving me a shove. I snickered at him. “That’s payback, isn’t it?”

Joe was breathing hard but he managed to speak. “I recall you said, and I quote, ‘Get the fuck off me now’ just before you flipped me to the floor.”

I stroked his cheek with my knuckles. “I helped you up.”

He smiled as a streak of sunlight fell across the bed. His beautiful blue eyes sparkled as he gazed at me. “I’ve missed you, Riley. I’m so sorry--”

“Shh. Don’t you think that after all these years I know?”

“But it was a shitty thing to do to the guy I’m in love with.”

About Hey, Joe:

A vignette of contemporary gay romance

New York City detective Joe Hamilton lives a double life as an undercover operative. When a case takes an unexpected turn, Joe finds himself separated from his partner. He scribbles a cryptic message in a birthday card and drops it in the mailbox.

Riley O’Shea kissed his partner goodbye at the beginning of a normal day only to have Joe disappear without a word. Riley’s worried but after a greeting card arrives with a date and flight number inside, Riley claims the ticket and boards a plane to Chicago. It’s the only way to get the answers he needs – and lots of reunion sex.

It was just an idea I had that never quite grew into a novel. I figured it was time to do something with it and then I saw that photo...excuse me... I still need a moment when I view that photo...

Congrats on dipping your finger into indie publishing.
I'm definitely a greenhorn with the publishing world.

About Hey, Joe… your snippet is intriguing. I don't think one needs to be of the persuasion to be able to enjoy a well written story. I also like your little bit of backstory, definitely makes these characters come to life.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for the A to Z Challenge.

Cheers, Jenny
