Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

A white van with the hood up came into view along with a group of Amish women standing beside it. Gabe pulled the horse and wagon to a stop beside them. Which one was going to concentrate her attention on him? He wished Jonah knew the answer. That way he’d know which sister to avoid. His mother’s cousin Waneta came rushing toward him with a cheerful smile. “Gabriel, it’s goot to see you again.” He got down from the wagon, determined not...

In this excerpt, Danny tries to convince Prescott to take a closer look at the town’s mid-century architecture. Danny Before we walk out of the shop, Prescott stops to put on a pair of leather gloves that are so tight each finger needs to wriggle in on its own until he uses the opposite hand to yank the taut creamy leather down on to his hand in one fell swoop. The leather scene has never really been my turn-on of choice but something about see...

Jen: What inspired you to write HADLEY AND GRACE?  Suzanne: The idea for HADLEY AND GRACE came from my enduring love for the movie Thelma and Louise. I wanted to write the same sort of exciting road-trip adventure that also had an underlying theme of self-discovery and empowerment. As it turned out, I couldn’t actually tell the story as it was originally conceived by the talented Callie Khouri. Fortunately for us, times have changed and we...

She was a bleeding heart. She was going off the deep end. She was becoming a furry—not that there was anything wrong with that. She knew a few really nice furries. No, it was more like she was becoming one of those women who turned prison pen pal to guys like Bundy and Richard Ramirez. There were a dozen explanations going through Neha’s head when she left lockup and returned to the real world, but there was only one image. Joe Peluso, right ...

Hi, S.W.! Welcome to Fresh Fiction. Please introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your new book, PATIENCE & ESTHER.  Hello! I’ve been making comics for ages and started writing/drawing erotica when Spike of Iron Circus hired me to create a story for the 2014 Smut Peddler anthology. Since then, I’ve been an ongoing contributor to Filthy Figments, plus my erotic work has appeared in other places like the French magazine L’Imma...

He was handsome. Lucia had noticed that from the outset. It was difficult to tell beneath all of that grime and hair, but once she got a good look at his face, she could see just how handsome he was. And young; he wasn’t old at all. Well, relatively old. At ten or more years than her twenty and one. He was a man in his prime. But he was also living on the streets, and in addition to the smell of piss from the pot she’d slung at him, she thoug...

As we turn the page from a miserable 2020 into what everyone hopes will be a much better 2021, we’ll look at fiction that involves people trying to rebuild their lives after the even-greater tragedy of World War I—which traumatized the world by adding the first global pandemic on top of an already-horrific war.  In settings varying from England to France to Italy, this month’s collection of stories demonstrates that nothing is stronger tha...

Jedi Knight or Wookie
Guests / May 25, 2005

I just finished a book that would have made GREAT reading while waiting in line for Episode III. Too bad that’s not when I was reading it. In her latest release, THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY MEN I’VE DATED, Shane Bolks references Star Wars more times than any die hard fan wearing a cheap black cape, shiny black mask and breathing heavy would. She cites Yoda as one of the greatest philosophers of all time and classifies me...

Hissy Fit
Guests / May 25, 2005

I am on vacation this week, enjoying a visit from some of my family, but I have been squeezing in time to read. It helps that 2 of my sisters who are visiting a big readers too! I just finished Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews this morning. I thoroughly enjoyed every page! I am looking forward to getting a lot more reading done on Sat. because we are going to the lake for swimming and sailing. I will be slathering on the sunscreen and catc...

It’s Hump Day
Guests / May 25, 2005

For those who might not know Hump day is Wednesday, becuase there’s 2 days of the week already passed, and only 2 days of the week left until the glorious weekend. It’s going to be a three day weekend, and I hope many of you have some wonderful plans. If all goes according to plan my mom is coming Friday afternoon. She’s supposed to be letting me know for sure as she had an angioplasty last week, and was to have seen t...

Midnight Musings
Guests / May 25, 2005

Or, why I sometimes like historical fiction more than anything else… I’m babysitting a script so I thought I’d take the time to ponder on yesterday’s reading since today my reading time was limited to menus and map directions. Had lunch with my friend and co-worker M today and as usual, we discussed our reading. She’s stuck on a book verging on chick-lit (not her favorite by any stretch of the imagination) ...

Our family made a trip to the cinema and saw Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, one of DC’s favorite books. Even though we were the only ones laughing, a fun time was had by all. So much, the dialogue is still being quoted. Marvin the paranoid android: “Life? Don’t talk to me about life!” Mouse 1: “Rubbish, we don’t want to be happy, we want to be famous!” If you have a chance, and the line...

What are you reading?

Time for my weekly update on what I’m reading. And I’m still trying to figure out this whole loading pictures thing and this didn’t work like it was supposed to from the directions so bear with me.In print, I finished advance copies of Susan Gable’s The Pregnancy Test last week and moved on to Holly Jacobs’ Lovehandles, which I finished this weekend. Now I’m reading The Moon Witch by Linda Winstead Jo...

At the beginning of the 19th century, adventure awaits…

Well, two good paranormal books down, I also read two historicals…MR. IMPOSSIBLE by Loretta Chase and THE CHASE by Cheryl Sawyer. (Enough “chase” in that sentence?). Loretta Chase has been a favorite historical romance author of mine for years — way too many to admit here. One of my very favorite historical romances is LORD OF SCOUNDRELS and I wish I could say that MR. IMPOSSIBLE was up there with the best of the...

After my low of the week, and don’t you just hate it when you anticipate a book (or movie for that matter) and then it just doesn’t quite live up to your expectations? It’s an “okay” book or movie, but you were expecting to be blown away? Well, although my one read this week fit the description, I may have had a more open mind about the others I read. CARVED IN STONE by Vickie Taylor was a more than pleasan...

Hollows come alive….Or not…
Guests / May 22, 2005

Been a couple of days, but with work, daughter home from college, husband on vacation and Star Wars Episode III, it’s been difficult to find time to read much less yak on about it in a journal. But ha, did you think I wasn’t reading? Silly you! Finished EVERY WHICH WAY BUT DEAD on Friday. Sad to say, I thought I could finish in a single setting, but this episode, for me at least, is not as good as the first two. Either, she ...
