His Womanly Ways by K. Lynn

hiswomanlywaysAlex is a womanizer. He makes no excuses for it. Yes, he picks up women at the local bar, leaving them with just a memory of a good night and a good lay, but he hasn’t had any complaints yet. That is, until he picks up the wrong woman. Not satisfied to be tossed aside as just another notch in Alex’s bedpost, she curses him, wishing he “knew what it was like for a woman.” And he’s about to find out what she means, embarking on a genderswap journey that he can’t stop.

Alex starts slowly gaining secondary female characteristics. Waking up with his cock gone, replaced by a vagina, was bad enough. Then it gets worse, as his body becomes more like a woman than the man he used to be. Alex tries to hide the changes he’s going through, for fear that someone will discover his secret, but keeping this quite literally “under wraps” might be impossible before the curse runs its course.

With the help of his female best friend, Eve, Alex tries to deal with who he is becoming. He feels like he’s lost his identity, his mind not matching the body he now has. But Eve sticks by him, and they become closer as Alex’s changes progress. What started out as friendship may become something more before Alex’s journey is over. Perhaps this curse was actually a blessing in disguise.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve written a number of manuscripts over the past few years, full-length novels that are in different levels of editing. And I’ve written quite a few short stories and novellas, all of which have been published (or soon to be published). However, I’ve only done NaNoWriMo once. The push to write at such a fast pace, in such a short time, is both freeing and terrifying. But, I figured I’d give it a try once. And as a result, I completed the first draft of His Womanly Ways.

This novel is unlike my usual fare of works, and perhaps that’s why it came so fast to me. I let myself go and just saw where the plot would take me. And it turns out that it took me to quite an interesting place. The only thing I knew going in was that I wanted to do a genderswap book, but one that was unlike those I had read prior. I have always been interested in the genre, but I find most of it jumps straight to objectification rather than exploration. You’re turned into another gender, so the first thing you do is feel yourself up and try to have sex with the nearest willing person? I don’t buy that.

Essentially your body doesn’t match your inner self anymore. That should cause some kind of journey to either accept or reject the situation. That’s what I tried to do with His Womanly Ways. Alex didn’t ask for this to happen to him, and the process is gradual, as is his acceptance of the changes. His mind doesn’t match the image he sees in the mirror, and that’s important to realize.

Did I strike the right note between humor and drama? Create an interesting storyline with realistic characters, despite the extraordinary circumstances they are in? That’s up to the reader to decide, but I do hope I provide a new way to look at the concept. Because a change in gender is not something to take lightly.

Author Bio:
Arabella Sheen is a successfully published British author. Her novels – Blinded by Desire and Temporary Bride – have been well received and are acquiring excellent reviews from her loyal following of romance readers. Arabella likes nothing more than the challenge of a blank page. Starting a new novel, with new ideas and new plots, she aims to excite her readers, drawing them into the sparkling, elegant world of romance, love and passion. Her novels are for the true romantic. They’re places where readers are able to escape with jet-setting billionaires, be flown to exotic locations and cosmopolitan destinations, only to be caught up in the heartbreaking decisions and emotional conflicts her sophisticated, strong alpha hero’s and equally strong resourceful heroine’s have to make.
One of the many things Arabella loves to do is read and when she’s not reading or writing modern romantic novels she is either on her allotment, sowing and planting with the seasons, or she is pandering to the demands of her attention seeking cat.
Having worked and lived in the city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands for nearly twenty years, she now lives in the South of England with her family. As well as constantly developing and promoting her writing career she also works in a busy international hotel where she is able to meet lots of interesting people from various parts of the world and from whom she often gains inspiration and ideas to include and incorporate in her contemporary romance novels.
Arabella hopes her readers have as much pleasure from her ‘easy reading’ ebooks and paperbacks as she has in writing them.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
What inspired me to write TEMPORARY BRIDE was watching a single parent friend struggle as she raised her child. She’s had to make some tough decisions. Decisions not only about her child, but also about her career and life. It was my friends strong determination and strength of mind that brought the heroine, Amy Denver, to life on the page.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My love of vampires and Gothic literature helped me cross over to a genre I thought I’d never write. I wanted to show a side to my vampires I could never do in my mainstream books, and enjoyed the process very much.
