Goodbye Painful Silence.

I did something I never expected to do today. I took down a story. I had a reader mention violence in my stories. I protested that I never have sexual violence in my stories. Then I thought about A Painful Silence. That was my attempt a couple years ago to cross my professional writing career in mystery and thrillers with my love of writing erotica. It didn't work. I ended up with a horror story too brutal for me to even reread. Yet, there it was, in my story list.

I previously marked it as for premium members only, to cut down on accidental viewing, but today I took it down completely. If you were in the process of reading it and would like to continue--really??-- let me know and I'll send you a copy. Otherwise mark that one a learning experience I won't subject you to again.
