Audiobook Version of My Erotic Gay Romance, “For The Love of Samuel” Now Out on Audible, i-Tunes and Amazon…
… what Amos Lassen, a leading reviewer of gay erotica said made “Samuel seem very real and very sexy.” Narrated by me – who else – the author.
It was fun doing the recording and playing a ham as I enacted the various roles of my characters. I’ve listened to only a few audiobooks in the past, but now having done one myself l see how you can add a certain zest and new reality to your words. “For The Love of Samuel” is written in first person, present tense which means my character, Billy, is telling his story as it is happening to him – and you.
Says Amos Lassen in his review:
“There have been countless stories about the quest for youth and everlasting life making it difficult to find a new way to approach it and write about it. Here is where Andrew succeeds. He takes the facts that he has learned and converts them into fantasy and he gives us a very sexy story. It seems that there were certain dog tags that contained the life force of their long dead owners and when the tags were transferred to a new owner, the person returned to the age Samuel was when he lost his life.
We meet some very hot men who have some very hot sex but the reader must be ready to read fast because the novel is fast paced. I actually heard, and thoroughly enjoyed the audio version that made it all seem very real (and very sexy). However, it is not only the sex that keeps the story moving. Writer Andrews tells a good story in wonderful prose…
There are a lot of characters and the story changes directions a few times keeping us alert. This is one of those books that will stay with me for quite a while.”
New Yorker and aging gay man Billy Veleber who abhors growing old has lost Mitch, his former meth head lover, to his habit, and Gus, the older man in his life and mentor, to despair, when he is confronted with the chance to become 21 all over again, through the magical prowess of the dog tag of a long dead Civil War soldier, Samuel Evans. Young again, Billy abandons Manhattan for Fort Lauderdale where he meets Dare, the love of his life, whose clever quick rich venture first bonds them, then threatens to end their idyllic lives together forever.
