Free sample

The first novel by Guy New York, The Island on the Edge of Normal, follows James from New York City to the coast of Maine where he struggles to forget his past by destroying his memories one page at a time. As he settles into his new life, he finds himself falling in love with Issa, the married women whose house he is sharing. When he learns that Issa and Paul have an open marriage he’s forced to make decisions he’s tried hard to avoid.

But the more comfortable he becomes, the more his past returns, until suddenly it arrives on the island in the form of Jane, the woman he’s been trying so hard to forget. Even as James learns about non-jealous husbands, handsome tourists, and growing up on the edge of normal, he’s still consumed by guilt, fear, and a deep-seated anger that he doesn’t fully understand and can’t let go.

A tale of love, lust, and redemption, The Island on the Edge of Normal pushes the boundaries of what it means to create, destroy, and forgive.

The Ortolan Hunters and Other Disturbing Tales is a beautiful collection of three short stories and a novella. Occasionally funny, sometimes hot, and frequently twisted, the collection dives into sexual desires, erotic one-upmanship, and the boundary between fetish and morality.

The Ortolan Hunters is about a couple fighting over the little birds. When the narrator is finally convinced to procure the exotic, and illegal dish, he decides he needs to teach his partner a lesson. It's intense, delicious, and fairly twisted, to say the least.

The Elevator follows another couple acting out a horrible fantasy with a stranger. It's a disturbing story that flips the rules of consent as they draw out his most basic instincts.

The Unicorn is the funny break in the middle and follows the narrator as he heads over to be the third to some friends who have never had a threesome before. It's safe to say, nothing goes exactly as planned.

The Day The Lights Went out takes place in a NYC Hotel during a blackout. Two strangers meet for a one-night-stand but get interrupted when the place goes dark. Instead of just getting busy they decide to test each other with stories of their past, each trying to prove how horrible they are. In between each story they discuss sexuality, consent, fetish, guilt, and kink, arguing about feminism and masculinity all the while trying to out do each other. Their stories are filthy and border on the edge of acceptable, often falling off the wrong side. But how much are they making up and how much is true? And more importantly, does it matter?
