What Are AmberPax™ Collections?

Simply put, AmberPax™ Collections are groups of five stories centered around a specific theme. Each story within an AmberPax™ is released individually, on the same day as the others, and can be purchased separately, but these five stories can also be purchased as a single unit (the full AmberPax™) at a discount, currently 25%. Generally, an AmberPax™ is similar to an "anthology" of stories, but instead of the titles being released in only a single volume (file), they are also available individually. These AmberPax™ Collections are sold exclusively through our website and only in electronic format.

THIS BLOG is for news about the Pax Collections - follow it to keep up with releases, find early news of the upcoming collections, and share Pax fun and chat with the authors!

All Amber Paxes can be bought at Amber Quill HERE.

The Ghost of Get Me Some Corners by A.J. Llewellyn & D.J. Manly


It's not always fun being alone especially when you're a ghost. In my initial idea, Get Me Some Corners was the place to go when you wanted to get you some. Gay men knew what that code word meant back in the day when gay bars were all hidden away in dark corners. 

But other things can lurk in dark corners besides sex. And what if those "other things" are compelling you to hang around and find out about secrets that have been kept for many years? 

There is some great sex to be had in Get Me Some Corners but there also might be a price to pay. Maybe they want you to stay…forever. 

When Ian is transferred from the big city, he fears he might be the only gay man in town. He isn't. Gay men have been around for quite some time in this quaint little town but they all might not be alive.  

There is nothing more fascinating and terrifying than a ghost story. And that’s why writers like to write them and readers like to read them.

What do we know about ghosts? Well, contrary to popular belief, most ghosts are not seen wandering around in cemeteries, but rather are found in houses and buildings. Why do the dead hang around and tease the living?

Some believe ghosts are trapped. They don’t know they’re dead. Some stay because their bodies were never buried, never discovered. Some were murdered and they revisit their deaths over and over. Sometimes they seek justice or even revenge for what was done to them in life. Some have some unfinished business. They need to keep a promise to someone or even to warn them about something. Sometimes their emotional ties to a place are too strong and they can’t break away. 

Or perhaps the ghost itself is evil and is being punished by not being allowed to move on.

Whatever it is, it’s intriguing. It can be exciting, terrifying and even deadly. 


When D.J. first proposed this idea to me, I thought, "Wow! How cool!" I've always adored romantic ghost stories such as The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Topper, and of course, Ghost. I've always loved the idea of love being so strong that even death cannot conquer it.

Of course, in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, the love and the passion though simmering, remain chaste until Mrs. Muir dies. As he spirit departs this world, her crusty old sea captain is there waiting to join her on "the other side." 

Romantic? Yes, and undeniably unforgettable. But sexy? Well…maybe not. And what about Ghost? Patrick Swayze has to communicate with his grieving widow via a wacky psychic and though it's funny and memorable and emotionally satisfying, nobody could imagine Demi Moore and Woopi Goldberg (possessed by Swayze) doing the funky chicken.

So. I loved this updated idea and enjoyed the whole realm of possibilities it presented. I thought the sex was hot, hot, hot. No longer did I have to wonder what Rex Harrison's sea captain character did once he got his hands on his sweet, sad, widowed woman.

I could see it. Well, imagine it, because the first sex scene D.J. wrote involved numerous people but it's dark and well, crowded.

Holy ménages, Batman!

I liked the idea of a new guy coming to town and looking for action. Ian doesn't expect the kind of heat he experiencess. When D.J. first laid out the story I was intrigued. Ian's employee, Steve, is a guy who's local. I thought it would be cool if Steve (my character) had experienced the Ghost of Get Me Some Corners.

Of course, we have sex and love and tons of romance in this book, but I can't help thinking of the actual ghost of Get Me Some Corners. I hope that in his misty world he finds true love, that he finds someone who wants him too. 

I am reminded of a lovely quote by Benito Perez Galdos: "I believe that if I should die, and you were to walk near my grave, from the very depths of the earth I would hear your footsteps."

That to me, is what love, and this book I have come to cherish, is all about.


The Ghost of Get Me Some Corners ~ Synopsis:

When Ian gets promoted and transferred to head up a new office for his computer firm in Greenhill Groves, it seems a great boost to his career, but he also suspects it might just be the death knell regarding his sex life. Then, with the help of his hot assistant Steve, Ian learns about a happening dance club located at the end of a dead end street, a legendary spot that gay men used to refer to back in the 1970s as “Get Me Some Corners.”

One night, loaded with high expectations, Ian decides to check out the hook-up joint. To his surprise, he not only meets a gorgeous guy named Zach, but also has the best sex of his life in the club’s darkened back room with multiple partners.

But despite all this, Ian can’t shake the notion that something isn’t quite right at the bar...not quite right at all...
