Apparently a number of my stories have been put on sale at Amazon by a person called "Veronica West." I am not Veronica West, nor am I in any way connected to that person. My stories have been stolen. Please do not support this person in any way. I have made a report to Amazon.
I've had a few emails wanting to know what happened in the last few chapters of Bec3 that would explain Bec's current situation.
The answer is that nothing in the last few chapters of Bec3 explains her current situation. Bec3 ends with Bec going to bed and in a good mood.
What happened to Bec that got her where she is now must therefore have happened on Monday.
Congratulations to all of those authors who gained top billing in the recently announced Clitorides Awards. I'm familiar with most of the stories that won and they certainly deserve recognition. I am quite chuffed that my own story, Bec3, is included in that list so thanks to all who voted for it.
I have just posted a new story for the NIS universe. It's an idea I had several years ago and have played with a little during breaks from writing Bec. I need to thank Erik Thread for the excellent feedback that allowed me to improve the story as well as his editing.
Experiment 37 is now posted. It is a direct sequel to Experiment 36 even though I tried to write it as another stand-alone story.
Once again I intended it to be fairly light-hearted and not to be taken too seriously, though I found that I couldn't help myself and ended up inserting some quite tender moments.
I've said it before, I tend to write about broken people. They react differently and that makes them interesting. I'm not trying to make fun of people who have those sorts of issues. Ultimately, I find myself in awe of Sally's parents because they have built a life and a family despite their issues.
I guess another theme within my writing is the importance of family, regardless of how functional or otherwise the family is. Sally is broken too, in her own way, and her family is vital to her. But she needs more than they can give so she has to find that extra support outside of her immediate family. That is not uncommon.
