The Freeing Year: M/s historical fiction

Shemot (Exodus) And these are the ordinances that you shall set before them. Should you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall work [for] six years, and in the seventh [year], he shall go out to freedom without charge. If he comes [in] alone, he shall go out alone; if he is a married man, his wife shall go out with him. If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out alone. But if the slave says, “I love my master, … Continue reading

The Beast (the real story)

I remember being the beast. I remember the hunger, the need, the anger and the despair. I remember the man. The stories say I attacked him for a rose, threatened to kill him or imprison him until he offered me his daughter in exchange. The stories give me too much credit. I attacked him, yes. Blindly furious at the invasion of my territory, the theft of my possessions. (Do you really think he found a seemingly-abandoned palace and tried to take only a rose? He was not so foolish.) Yes, I terrified him. He ran from me like I was … Continue reading

Taming My Wolf

I found him lying in a ditch behind the warehouse. He looked like he’d gotten on the wrong end of a meat tenderizer. Mud mixed with the blood covering his body and stained the little clothing he had a red-brown tie-dye. I managed to get him home. Don’t ask me how. Or why. Healing isn’t my strength, but I had magic enough to burn any infection out of his wounds. I had to cut his clothing off and by the time he was clean, I and every rag I owed was a disgusting mess. Since he showed no sign of … Continue reading

Innocents, Part II

(Part I) The door to the glamourhame opened. “Enter and be silent.” Dannel stepped into the torture chamber and bowed to the fae lord within. The door closed behind him. Dannel had been in the glamourhame once before. When he had been brought here for Lord Falthro to torture to death. He still didn’t know what had made the lord stop and listen to him. Believe in his innocence. Dannel was alive because of the fae’s honor and honesty. He was a slave, and about to be tortured to feed the fae’s glamour, because before learning of Dannel’s innocence the … Continue reading

No November Story–But December Ebook

For a whole bunch of reasons I’ll be talking about in my next Goodreads blog post, October was an insane month for me. As a result of that insanity, November 1st rolled around and I had two half-finished kinky stories, not one finished story. I could have rushed to finish one of them (and probably doing a slap-dash job of it!). But I’m frankly tired of not giving my stories the time and attention they deserve. So here is what is happening instead: I am taking November to finish both stories, as well as edit an ebook gathering together all … Continue reading

It’s Time to Make Kink Intersection Friendly (Dracula and the Wolfman?)

(read Dracula and the Wolfman? here) I don’t remember when I first learned abut intersectionality. Sometime during the difficult year and a half we lived in Tennessee. My teachers included stavvers, Balogun Otajade, and our own stabbity. Like many things I learned during that time, it was an eye opener. A theory that embraced feminism while still acknowledging that my disabled while male partner experienced more prejudice and oppression than most of the women around him. A way of viewing the structure of modern life which didn’t try to force gender, and race, and orientation, and relationship style, and income … Continue reading

Dracula and the Wolfman?

David grabbed the collar and leash out of the draw and walked over to where his pup was snoozing before the fire. A quick back rub woke the pup up and brown eyes gleamed up at him. “Want to go for a walk?” His pup jumped up and immediately started whining and nudging at the collar. David laughed and held up a treat. “Sit.” The pup immediately plopped down on his haunches. “Up.” Bring his front paws up, the pup carefully balanced as David set the treat on his nose. “Get it.” Grabbing the treat with a practiced snap, the … Continue reading

Thoughts on Enthralled: Brain Candy

I had fun writing Enthralled, and I hope you enjoyed reading it. I like to think story is different from my usual. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t believe there is such a thing as ‘just fiction.’Enthralled, and I hope you enjoyed reading it. I like to this story is different from my usual.

Enthralled

I saw him for the first time walking the ancient wood where the priest said demons and fell spirits made their homes. They say the devil is skilled in deception, but to me he seemed an angel lit upon the earth. He stood in a fall of sunlight that slipped through a gap in the autumn leaves. I remember best his eyes. How sad and weary they seemed. For a moment, his eyes met mine, then he stepped back out of the sunlight. His dark skin blended with the shadows of the trees, and I saw no more.   A … Continue reading
