Here’s the cover. If you’re into this kind of woman… you’ll like the book.
Here’s the blurb:
What if you discovered your best friend could transform into your fantasy woman – or any woman you might desire?
Tom wasn’t looking to hook up when he walked into the bar that night, but then he met Jessica, a curvaceous blonde with crystal blue eyes and a sultry voice. He thought he’d gotten lucky, until Jessica revealed that beneath an ultra realistic mask, wig and elaborate disguise… she was actually Tom’s best friend, James.
How did James transform himself into this stunning woman? What does he have planned for Tom? And will Tom be able to handle the truth about James’ secret life? Find out in His Best Girlfriend, a rewrite of the classic masking short story by Val (written and published with the original author’s permission).
As I point out at the end, in a similar vein to Her Substitute, Her Best Girlfriend is a rewrite/expansion of the original story by Val (who has given his thumbs-up on the final product).
If you’ve read the original, you probably know it’s one of the hottest masking short stories out there. I did my best to add some chrome on this already gleaming story.
Hey all. With just a couple of days to go before the release of Seeing is Deceiving, I figured I owed you one extract, at least!
This is, as you might imagine, spoiler-packed. This book in particular has a lot of twists and turns right from the start, so if you want to preserve the surprises… move right along and pre-order the book.
Seeing is Deceiving is now live in paperback. As in, you can buy it. Right now. And apparently have it in your hot little hands by Wednesday, at least here in the US, with Prime, etc etc.
Damn, Amazon is on a tear. Trying to impress someone?
Anyway, you’d think after doing this for so long I’d know all the stuff but no! This being the first time I’ve actually had a paperback of a book available/submitted at the same time as the ebook, it’s the first time I’ve found out that the paperback can get processed this quick and can go on sale earlier than the pre-order!
At this time of year – still 2022 around these parts – it’s tempting to do one of those retrospective doohickeys, you know, look back at all the great words that were written in your blog.
But we know better than that, don’t we? We do. It’s not like I have a lot of blog entries to peruse. So while 2022 started in what I felt was a positive way, it’s ended in a sort of… medium way. But better than it could have, for sure, because…
Honestly the editing felt like more of a drag than the writing at times, but it’s done and even better, I recently invested in some new software that should help me get the book formatted and ready for publication quicker than ever. So that’s next! No, it won’t be out today (ha!) but I have a good feeling about January. I really do!
It’s a big book (surprise, surprise) and it took way too fucking long but it’s done. So yay! That’s coming closer. It’s real. Itshappening.gif.
Also, let’s be real
I have to remind myself that despite publishing one thing in 2022 and finishing one other thing, that was, in fact, more productive than I’ve been in years.
And I know that I’ve said this before, but man, 2022 sucked in a few very specific ways (and is, in fact, still sucky in some) so the fact that anything came out is good.
What’s up for 2023?
As always, I have plans. As always, they may not come to fruition! But it’s good to have plans.
First thing, obbbbbviously, is publishing Seeing is Deceiving. It will be on Amazon; it will be on Gumroad (and maybe elsewhere) as a PDF and/or other file for those who aren’t Amazon friendly. It will be a paperback for the two of you who want to buy a physical copy.
Then – honestly, unsure. I’ve got thoughts. I’ve got ideas. We’ll see which way the muse takes me. Hopefully roughly and from behind.
That’ll do! Gonna go off and (gasp) work on formatting the book. Woo!
Happy New Year, everyone. Here’s to surviving 2023.
Yep, it’s Christmas Eve and nope, the book isn’t finished (editing wise). It’s closer! It gets closer. But it won’t be out this year.
Next year? 99.9% sure. I mean, I could be hit by a bus.
However, I do have a little something. It’s really not much! At all! But it’s something and hey, if I don’t drop it here it’s going nowhere else because: it’s a cut scene.
Literally until this week, this (small) scene was in the draft. And then for reasons I won’t bore you with (right now; I reserve the right to bore you later), it got cut. It ain’t going back in. It’s just never going to happen in the book. So you might as well get it here, eh?
Regardless of the fact this scene isn’t going in the book, it’s still full of spoilers for reasons you’ll see.
Sooo SPOILERS AHEAD. You will spoil stuff about the book if you read beyond this point, regardless of it not being in the book. Trust me.
