Practice to Deceive

Practice to Deceive - mask fiction novel - cover

He was lost in his fantasy. Billy Merrill, master of disguise… he imagined a camera was moving around him, capturing every moment, as he completed his transformation without cuts, without trick shots or editing.

He groaned again as he moved his fingers downward, smoothing out wrinkles, tracing the outline of his mother’s features as they covered his own, subsuming his identity.

An absent mother, a crossdressing boy, an empty house. Will practice make perfect?

When Linda leaves town for business, her son Billy is left to house-sit. He doesn’t stay alone for long, though – Linda soon returns, thanks to a flawless latex mask and Billy’s mastery of disguise. Now Billy has an entire week to spend alone, masquerading as his mature, sexy mother… what could possibly go wrong?

Reviews for Practice to Deceive

You know a book is good when you finish reading it not only in one sitting, but after you finish it you decide to read it a second time; to enjoy the subtleties and small details you might have missed the first time around…. I wholeheartedly recommend this book. For anybody who not only enjoys masking stories, but also well-crafted erotic literature.

– E.A., reviewer

It’s just a really, REALLY good book. It’s the first erotic fiction book I’ve read, but believe me when I say that nothing could top this book as a first impression.

– Reviewer

Practice To Deceive is a rare treasure: a story that is not only erotic, but thoughtfully so, exploring Billy’s motivations for acquiring a perfect mask of his mother’s face, as well as how he feels to take her place and have perfect strangers treat him as her.

– B.L., reviewer

I was looking for a lot out of this, and came away from the first few chapters with some significant expectations, and I am delighted to say that Practice to Deceive not only delivered, but did so in ways that honestly amazed me. This is a story to which any crossdresser can relate, and which any masking aficionado will appreciate.

A word about DRM and Amazon

Kindle is a proprietary format for Amazon, and as such, if Amazon ever folds or you lose access to your Amazon account for some reason, you’d lose access to your books. While I feel confident in saying Amazon will be around for a bit, if you think this could be a problem, you might want to buy a physical paperback version of Practice to Deceive instead.

Buy in paperback

Do I have to explain what a paperback book is? Probably not. Thanks to print-on demand services, you can buy Practice to Deceive as a real-life paperback book. It will be created and printed for you, and shipped to you like any other book.

As a print-on-demand book, the price is considerably higher than you would pay for the ebook version. I cannot avoid this, and have priced the book as competitively as I can. Nonetheless, if you want a physical copy, this is the way to go.

By the way – if you buy the book in paperback I’d love to see it in the wild! Send me a picture.
