I didn’t mean it…really, I didn’t. Caught up in the moment, is all…I’d been a bad girl, then. How can I make it up to you, Mary? I’ll do anything to quell the incessant burning…please…I’ll tell you a tale, if you like. One of whimsy and thrill…of royalty and– and peasantry. And…and…and…chocolate and wine!” That story, dearest readers, is for another time and place. And this is that story, in all its painful glory.

Omigod, You Guys

I thought I could escape her, like any stupid human who got punched in the jaw by God’s wife (or the devil…) and had to deal with the pain, eventually deciding on distracting her and driving away. Yeah, how did that work?

Oh, right. Being railroaded into telling her the story by way of seasonably expedient traffic and/or a rainstorm. It wasn’t the type where you could just leave, either.

This was Noah-in-the-flood rain. This was live-in-a-car traffic. This was oddly hypnotic weather and, with my jaw and now arm arrested by shooting pain, there was nothing I could do except please Her for the freeing of them. So, without further ado, I began to spiel the story with…

Beloved Q Medina: At first I figured it was another genre fiction book and didn't have any expectations, but by the first few chapters I found myself engrossed in Sid's journey. Some say that genre fiction is predictable, or not as substantial as literary fiction, but this novel was anything but that. I found myse...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...
