The Snake Handler’s Daughter–

The Snake Handler's Daughter Cover

by P.A. Lassiter

Looking for love in the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong person, and going about it all wrong.

At 66, Martha Browne is on a mission–to find the man of her dreams before the good Lord calls her back to His bosom. An Episcopal priest is a perfect choice, a step up from her origins as the daughter of a snake-handling preacher. Unfortunately, her last priest, Father Zebediah, died while she was chasing him (into a cleaning closet at the church). The new priest, though, is younger and by all appearances, a dream come true.

What Martha doesn’t know is that Father Arthur Endicott, though single and attractive, is also gay. He’s c

ome to Amity, Kentucky, to start his life over and this time to live it honestly. But Martha will not be deterred…not by the attractive church secretary who seems her most serious rival, nor by the new priest’s seeming immunity to her charms, nor by the big-titty floozy she keeps running into when she breaks into the church rectory. Martha will turn the priest’s head come hell or high water.

Trouble in Amity

by PA Lassiter
Todd O’Toole is lost. Despite the burst of fame he experienced when he inadvertently took a picture of a priest misbehaving in a gay cruising park, he has since lost his wife to another woman and can’t find his stride. Then he meets Sheherazade, the exotic beauty who once was married to the priest he disgraced. She’s got everything he ever wanted in a woman—looks, brains, mystery—and, thankfully, a tolerance for a few minor sexual quirks in a mate. When she rejects him, he follows her as she seeks out her obsession and the source of Todd’s ruination, her former husband, who now hawks his priestly wares among the unsuspecting citizens of Amity, Kentucky. What Todd finds there will alter him and his world forever, along with the citizens of that good parish.

    PAL! Your book is faaaabulous, dahling! I scooped up a copy and – oh my! – I’m up to my thigh (hehe). I love the reworking of it (privileged to be one who could assist in the writing process). Good job, babe! Well done! *round of apple-sause*

      Oh Julie…HI! And thanks so much. 🙂 I’m stoked that you’re finding time to read the final book with your busy writing schedule. Your extensive notes on Kentucky and regional language were especially beneficial to me during the process, so I thank you again for that. Lurrrve ya, girl! -PAL

    Hi there! Just to let you know I’ve just ordered The Snake Handler’s Daughter from Amazon in the UK. Will be with me tomorrow. Reading the reviews so far, I am looking forward to meeting the characters! I love your writing!

        Well, the book is mine! Anyone reading this undecided about buying this book – buy it – you won’t regret it. If you are worried that you love the Missing Pieces books so much, you are just not sure you want to read about other characters – don’t worry – there is room in your life for this book and the wonderful people you will be introduced to.

        The author has managed to create characters that are well rounded (very round in one case) and loveable with all their strengths and weaknesses. PAL has a particular skill for establishing a character and then patiently expanding this and altering the reader’s perception – in such a gentle way.

        With her usual wit, humour and understanding of the human psyche, the author has written a page-turning story which is intelligent, knowledgeable, easy to read and heart breaking – all at the same time.

        Oh yes – the sex scenes – is there anyone writing these any better at the moment? (There are certainly those writing them much, much worse!) WOW!

        PAL, you write and I will read. Thank you.

          I am absolutely heart-touched and thrilled that you can relate to my fictional world and its characters. Thank you so much, Chris. This is such a lovely comment, might I ask you to cross-post it here on Amazon as a customer review? The more reviews the book receives on Amazon, the more likely the “book finder” algorithm will recommend it to new readers, which really helps to get the word out. As a small incentive (to you and anyone else who reads this), did you check out the short story “Larry’s Girl” on this page? It’s a funny, sexy tale of Sylvia and Larry during their high school courting days. xx, -PAL

      Hi Anfaal,
      Actually, fanfiction is much easier to write than original fiction because a lot of the work of creating characters and settings is already done for you. However, it does take time and research and editing, and the trouble is that one cannot be paid for that work. Creating new, original fiction is where I am focused at the moment because eventually I hope to be paid. Unfortunately, the new work is requiring all my time at the moment, but Julie Vans and I hope to produce more pieces for the Twenty Years On diary to answer some of the remaining questions about the Cullens’ future. -PAL

        I would like to see the story from Jacob’s viewpoint as he is also a central part of the story.

          Hi Ivory,
          You are not alone in wanting to read Jacob’s POV. Writing it is not as simple as it might appear, though, since this website took approximately two years to create. I love Jacob, but I found Edward to be the most complex of the characters in the saga, and that’s why I chose to write from his POV. In the Private Diary of EAC, you’ll find a series of short vignettes where Edward reads Jacob’s mind and gives us the blow-by-blow of his thoughts pertaining to Bella. They are titled “J.B. Fantasy” and “J.B. Memory.” I’m highly amused every time I read them. I know it’s not enough, but it’s a little bit of Jacob for you. -PAL

      Hi Brandi,
      You’re a sweetheart! Thank you for asking about Miss Martha Browne, (publication title to be announced). The original version of it, if you read that one, was my first draft–raw and uncut–not publishable by any professional standard, but I enjoyed posting it as I went along. It kept me motivated to know that people were actually reading what I wrote. I was informed by a book agent that publishing houses will not accept stories that have been published prior to submission, including drafts of stories posted on the author’s website. Since I hadn’t decided whether to seek an agent or self-publish, I took the book down to work on subsequent drafts.

      The real answer to your question, though, is that it takes a long time to produce a quality book. Once it’s written and polished by the writer to “perfection,” it can still take up to three years from the time an agent accepts it to when it appears in print! I’m in a bigger hurry, so probably will self-publish, which still takes plenty of time if you do it right. I finished the first draft of Miss Martha Browne in November 2012, the second draft in May 2013, then put the book out for critique. While it was being read by my critique partners, I spent the summer drafting the followup book (working title, Trouble in Amity). (Doing things this way means that there won’t be such a long gap between publishing the first book and the second one.)

      Just this week, I’ve begun working on the third draft of Miss Martha Browne and I plan to submit it to a couple of agents. If it’s not picked up fairly quickly, I’ll proceed with self-publishing it in the spring, after which it will be available for purchase on this website and through the usual routes. It will have a cover and all the usual EPUB trimmings, like chapter links, etc. I’ve been working hard and still have plenty of work to do, so that’s why I’ve been quiet here for a while. One’s first novel is the toughest, as the learning curve is very steep (and I’m very particular about quality). I’ll keep you posted on the timeline as I know more. Thank you very much for asking. -PAL

    Hi!

    So it’s me again, ahaha! I am really, REALLY, really really really! impress with your version of Twilight Saga so I decided to look at your “Other Projects” (Even though I’m not done with Eclipse yet.) but…. Can’t find any PDF files here? Can you tell me (or better yet, post them here!!!) where the files are?

    PS: What among those books I’m asking will you recommend as a first read after Twilight?

      Last year, I spent some months writing a novel and posting chapters of the first draft online as I went. Then I took it down to edit it for publication. The second draft is now finished, but one more is required before it’s ready. When it is close to publication, I’ll post some teaser chapters here, but in general, if you want to sell a book, publishers do not appreciate it when you put it out for free on the internet first. 🙂 PAL

    Hi there,

    I just wanted to post and tell you I have really enjoyed reading your version of Edward’s Twilight. I have read a lot of fanfiction, and I have to say – I think yours is the best! 🙂

    I just finished Martha Browne and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it! Well done! Will you be writing more?

    Oh, and thanks for the head’s up about The Education of Sebastian! Great read.

    Take care,
    Kim

      Hi Kim! Thank you so much for that wonderful compliment. I’m very glad to hear that you enjoyed my stories.

      In answer to your question, I write continually with no end in sight. 🙂 Currently, I am allowing Miss Martha Brown to sit for a few weeks before I take down the rough draft and begin rewriting the novel for publication. I’ll remain active on Twitter (with a focus on the career side of things) and I’ll remain in touch with readers on Facebook. I’ve started another blog called PA Lassiter’s Survey of Erotic Romance which is slowly becoming a source of recommendations of the very best I find in erotic romance fiction. The SHOP pages on this website currently contain much of that information, but it gradually will be moved over there.

      As far as Twilight goes, I will be posting entries in Edward’s new diary (Twenty Years On), which begins in the year 2032. Life has changed for Edward and his family.

      My next novel will be based on other characters from Amity, Kentucky. The first story is likely to be Rhett & Riley’s, the next phase in their lives as they leave home for college. I also plan to look further into Arthur and Walker’s relationship, as well as follow Frank Crawford after he leaves Amity.

      Thanks for asking… Hope to hear from you again. PAL
