Hi, I’m Nia Farrell, author of The Three Graces series of BDSM menage erotic novellas from Dark Hollows Press. SOMETHING ELSE (The Three Graces Book One) has been called “part paranormal, part BDSM, part love story, all good.” Think kink with a paranormal twist. Grace Murphy is a psychic medium who’s been saving herself for her soulmates and is frustrated that it’s taking them so long to meet. First to come is Nico White, a bisexual American Indian musician. Six months later, they meet J.T. Santiago, a Latino ex-Navy SEAL with PTSD. J.T. is a dominant who has never had a male submissive, but Grace and Nico are a package deal. With these three soulmates, forging a future means healing the past as well as the present, no matter how painful it may be.
I’ve been involved in the metaphysical community for nearly thirty years and drew on personal experience for the story. I’ve done psychic readings at Irish festivals like Grace, co-written music and done sweat lodges like Nico. I have veteran family members and friends with PTSD like J. T. And, like Grace, I remember many of my past lives. I met my soulmate when I was seventeen. We’ll be married 43 years this year.
Let’s Get To Know Nia Farrell
Q: What are the top five books that have influenced your career?
A: Those would have to be the books that shaped me from childhood on. First influence, the Bible (first Domination/submission story that resonated with me was King David and Bathsheba). Next would be Bulfinch’s Mythology. I read every reference book I could get my hands on, especially the Encyclopedia Britannica in our high school library. First romance novel – The Wolf and the Dove by Kathleen Woodiwiss. First erotica – The Beauty trilogy by Anne Rice w/a A. N. Roquelaure.
Q: What’s the funniest thing a reader has ever said/emailed to you?
A: This isn’t from an email, but a reader who reviewed SOMETHING ELSE wrote: “Holy cow! What did I just read? I don’t even know where to begin, but I loved it. I want to read more like this. I can’t get this book out of my head.”
Q: If you could go back in time before you published your first book, what advice would you give yourself about publishing?
A: Have a marketing strategy in place and get savvy about internet promotions.
Q: What fictional character would you punch if the face if you thought you could get away with it without going to jail?
A: Laoghaire from Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER series.
Q: Pick a super-power and tell us what you’d do with it.
A: Bend time. Get more done.
Q: What’s your favorite AND least favorite thing about being a writer/author?
A: My favorite thing is connecting with readers, PA’s, and other authors. I’ve been blessed to have met so many great people, and established authors willing to share the wisdom of their experiences.
The downside for an author is do-it-yourself-promotion. The time spent promoting means less time writing, and I have so many stories to tell….
About SOMETHING ELSE by Nia Farrell
Grace Murphy is the local psychic medium who dreams of her soulmates –Nico White, a bisexual American Indian musician, and J.T. Santiago, an ex-Navy SEAL and former cage fighter with PTSD on top of the guilt that he’s still carrying from other lifetimes that they’ve shared. J.T. is a dominant, but he’s never had a male submissive and Grace and Nico are a package deal. It’s a learning curve for all of them, with J.T.’s initiation into MMF and MM relations and Grace’s introduction to BDSM. With Grace’s yin, J.T’s yang, and Nico’s center balance, the three of them come together as far as J.T.’s PTSD will allow, but forging a future means healing the past, however painful it might be, in an interracial paranormal MMF ménage BDSM erotic romance.
“You need to come out,” I tell him. Please please please. “It’s too cold for swimming, but on warm days, the fish still jump. Or we could kayak.” We have two, but a neighbor has several that he rents to campers, fishermen, and the occasional waterfowl hunter looking for a better way to retrieve downed birds.
Nico seconds the notion. “Sure,” he says, lifting his beer in a toast. “Bring your stuff. Spend the weekend. I’ll give you my room, or there’s a couch.” His choice of words reminds J.T. that, so far, we are friends and nothing more. Hopefully that’s about to change.
The warmth in Nico’s eyes makes me wonder if he’d rather share his room–his bed–with J.T. alone. It would let the two men bond before adding me to the mix. Trouble is, I can’t get a handle on J.T. What’s he up for?
I need J.T. to want us. Both of us. I want what I’ve seen. What I’ve dreamed about. The three of us sharing a bed, together, sometimes with me between, sometimes with Nico. When we looked at prop
My favorite quote from SOMETHING ELSE is:
The men come together, mouths crashing like the Cyanean Rocks, their big bodies meeting, molding, rubbing each other. J.T. rips off Nico’s shirt and tortures his nipples, eliciting hisses and moans that make my weeping pussy clench. J.T. strips off his tee, baring his chiseled torso to Nico’s talented mouth and hands.
Dear lord in heaven, this is so much better than porn.
