The Accidental Everything (Nerds Who Knot, Book 1)
by Amy Bellows
Some omegas go to clubs to pick up alphas. Isaac Evans cruises his poetry readings. It’s not the most professional choice, but what’s a horny omega to do?
He doesn’t mean to have sex with Rhett Donovan of the Donovan Poetry Fellowship—the prestigious grant he dreamed of receiving before he slept with the alpha who awards it. And when Rhett gives him a unique career opportunity, Isaac doesn’t mean to fall in love. If anyone found out about his relationship with Rhett, it could mean a career-ending scandal for them both.
He doesn’t mean to get pregnant either. His life is full of accidents.
After Isaac’s made every possible mistake, he has nothing but his poetry to keep him afloat. But in the game of love, poetry might be enough.
The Accidental Everything is a 24,000-word, non-shifter Omegaverse story featuring Mpreg, knotting, and adorable dads. It is an M/M romance intended for an 18+ audience.

A lust filled and emotional journey. I loved it!
I love discovering new authors and new sub-genres in MM romance and this was my first MPreg story and Oh My Word, what have I done! I loved this story. The emotions Amy was able to inject into the characters felt extremely real to me and while this is a shorter story it is so well detailed and has so much depth I felt like I knew these characters and could relate to them.
The story follows loveable softie and alpha, Rhett and the sassy and unapologetic omega poet, Isaac. I loved Isaac and his back story and how he continues to fight for himself and is unapologetic about his sexuality and sexual proclivities. I found the Omegaverse dynamic and sexy and loved that Rhett is a big teddy bear who wears his heart on his sleeve. I loved the poetry elements throughout the story and really enjoyed the secondary characters. This book is a wonderful journey to a HEA and a perfect (first) MPreg story!!!

Interview with Amy Bellows:
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a librarian by day, MPreg writer by night. I’ve been published in literary magazines, short story anthologies, and online news publications, but The Accidental Everythingis my first published book.
How do you relax?
I love baths with my kindle (that’s not waterproof). I like to live dangerously.
Do you have a favorite quote (either from your own books or one you’ve read or person past or present)?
I love Lord of the Butterflies by Andrea Gibson. It’s a poetry anthology that was published about a month ago. There are a lot of great lines that I could quote, but my favorite poem is called “Your Life.” It’s on YouTube and Spotify if you want to check it out.
What’s your favourite book or a book that changed your life?
I tend to live in the moment when it comes to books, so my book of the moment (or story of the moment) is Rule 47by Lynn Van Dorn. It’s only 11,000 words, but the character work and kink in the book is beyond brilliant.
Who inspires you?
Right now I’m very interested in Leta Blake’s omegaverse world-building. It’s a bit dark for me, but I love how complex it is. Reading her work makes me want to experiment with heavier world-building in my own omegaverse.
How long have you been writing and what made you fall in love with writing?
There was this girl I fell in love with in junior high who ran this writing group, and, well, I had to impress her. Ha ha. In all seriousness, I think it’s my love for books that feeds my love for writing. I always want to read things that don’t exist yet.
Did you always want to be a writer?
Yes, but I love library work too. I enjoy doing both.
What are your ambitions for your writing career?
At this point, I’m just hoping to find readers who will connect with my work. That’s been a very satisfying experience for me. I’m not sure what else to expect.
What’s your favorite part of writing?
I love how intellectually challenging it is.
Why did you choose to write LGBTQ+ romance? Why not another genre?
Probably because I’m queer, but also because the gender roles reflected in most MF romance don’t appeal to me. I still like MF romance, but it’s not as exciting as queer romance for me.
How did you find MPreg?
I cut my teeth on writing MPreg through fan fiction. A fellow fan fiction writer suggested that I try to write it professionally.
What’s your favourite part about the LGBTQ+ and MPreg communities?
People are so willing to help. I’ve had many writers give me advice, and my beta readers give me detailed feedback without expecting me to pay them or read their work in return. That’s not something you find outside of romance.
Describe a scene in your writing that has made you laugh or cry?
There’s a pit bull named Chomper in The Accidental Everythingwho made me giggle a few times.
Tell us a little bit about your writing style.
This is a hard question to answer about your own work. Other writers I’ve worked with have called my writing style voicey and sparse. But I think I’m quite sappy as a romance writer. Ha ha. I want a solid HEA, no holds barred, and I like to give that to my readers.
What does your writing process look like?
I like to start out with a few concept chapters. When I think I understand the heart of the story I write an outline (I use the suggested structure in Romancing the Beatby Gwen Hayes). At that point things tend to go pretty quickly. I usually work on several stories at once, jumping back and forth until all of them are done.
When/where is your favorite time/place to write?
I’m a bit of a writing whore. I can do it anytime, anyplace, and for any reason. But I love to write in a place where I can blast music and drink a cup of coffee.
How do you go about naming your characters?
When I’m writing a romance, I like the couple to have names of varying syllables, so it’s easier to set them apart. The Accidental Everythingis about Rhett and Isaac. My next book, The Bookmobile Baby, is about Art and Simon.
What’s your spirit patronus?
A walrus. I’m totally serious.
Tea or coffee? What’s your drink?
I like both, but coffee is my true love.
I would like to thank Amy for her time and loved getting to know what makes a great writer tick!
