TM Smith’s Opposites
I’ve recently read a few dystopian stories and have enjoyed the genre so far. Opposites by TM Smith is definitely not a YA dystopian series. There is romance involved with a variety of gender combinations. I was able to interview TM and we talked about some fun things. Read all about the book along with an excerpt that will leave you smiling. At the very bottom enter for a chance to win one of three prizes; e-book copy of 1 book in the series (winners choice), $15 Amazon e-gift card, Surprise Swag pack (US only shipping).
Amanda C. Stone: Good morning TM! I’m so glad you could join me today. You are a super hero! What’s your super hero name and secret talent?
TM: Smith: Oh my god, this is really hard! Wonder Woman and Super Girl are already taken. You know, I really have no idea. I absolutely love super hero stories, seen all the movies, even read some of the comic books, but I’ve never thought about being one. Quick, ask me something else! 🙂
ACS: Ok, fast! If you could be famous/infamous for one thing, what would you choose?
TMS: I would love for my story to be told in a broader spectrum, much like Erin Brokovich or J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter. With more books being made to movies, and more LGBTQ stories translated to TV and movies in a positive light every year, a girl can dream of possibilities, right?!
ACS: I would love to see some of the fabulous LGBT fiction and romance made into movies and television shows. You’re going to a naughty costume party, what do you go as?
TMS: Something like a renaissance era trollop. I’m completely fascinated with that time and culture. And who wouldn’t want to be the girl Tom Cruise drained then stuffed in a coffin?
ACS: Mmm, Tom Cruise circa Interview With A Vampire… Sorry, where was I? Oh yes. Do you have a library card and know where it is?
TMS: I do not. I live in a smaller town and, sadly, we don’t have a library. I’d have to drive to one of the larger cities and use their library. Thankfully, there is the world wide web and amazon fuels the flames of my kindle!
ACS: Oh my gosh, no library?! I don’t think I’d survive without one. Last question! There is magically 25 hours in a day. What would you do with the extra hour?
TMS: Write! I do not get enough time to write, that is why I only put out a couple stories a year. So if I had more hours in the night, more days in the week, I would spend them spinning tales.
ACS: Thank you so much for stopping by. It was wonderful having you.
TMS: And thank you so much for hosting me! Until next time.
In the year 2081 our planet survived global warming of an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene. This gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians. A new society is born.
In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins Aiya and Aiyan are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.
Love is Love.. it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions and boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi that he is matched with and eventually marries. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites.
*WARNING* Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, lesbian and straight couples.*
Standing outside the door to the room Kaden barely occupied, Aiyan placed his hands on either side of him planting him against the wall. He stared at Kaden for several moments before he smiled, and kissed him. Kaden pulled back and shot a warning glare at him.
“You should go.” Kaden whispered breathlessly. “Goodnight Aiyan.”
Aiyan grinned that crooked smile and planted a kiss on his neck and whispered, “Go where, here?” He moved up and nipped Kaden’s ear lobe with his teeth. “Or here?” he asked. Kaden was beginning to slide down the wall as his legs turned to jelly.
Aiyan stood back laughing, his eyes glistened and he smiled. “Goodnight Kaden, I love you.” Placing a quick peck on his lips, he turned to go.
“And I you.” Kaden said and closed the door behind him before sinking to the floor, no longer able to support himself. He ran the tips of his fingers across his still tingling lips, and smiled.
A military brat born and raised at Ft. Benning Georgia; Smith is an avid reader, reviewer and writer. She now calls Texas home from her small town on the outskirts of the DFW Metroplex. Most days you can find her curled up with her kindle and a good book alongside a glass of something aged and red or a steaming cup of coffee!
At 42 years young, she’s decided to enter the next phase of her life by adding the title of “author” to her list of accomplishments that includes single mom of three disturbingly outspoken and decidedly different kids, one of which is Autistic. Smith is and outspoken advocate for Autism and equal rights for the LGBTQ community.
Her Opposites series is based outside the normal parameters of social acceptability, examining a ‘what if’… What If to be gay or lesbian were the norm? What if to be straight labeled you as an Opposite and made YOU the Outkast?
