A couple struggling to make ends meet is taking its toll on their relationship. As a result they decide to separate for a while to try and get their careers on track, but while Brenda’s career is moving up, Jim’s is spiraling down the drain. His frustration and extended time off lands him at a goth bar where he meets Olivia, who sees something in him and tries to help him see his mistakes, by teaching him how the other half lives.
His experimentation reinvigorates Jim and his new found focus has carried over to his career as his work ethic has been noticed by his boss, his colleagues and his wife Brenda. As the two try and patch things up, Jim is very secretive about the change in him which has Brenda suspicious so she follows him and discovers his secret. Outraged and humiliated, she decides to show him just how different she can be as she forces Jim to carry out his secret fantasy into a reality he is not ready for.
This was a tough one for me. I was expecting a different story, but it was return to a portion of my past life and reality, although I wasn’t married when I had my experiences.
The story begins as John returns home earlier than expected to find his wife getting satisfaction he couldn’t give her. Only she didn’t find the satisfaction in a toy, but in a bull of a man. This could have ended the story very quickly, but that is not how this story ends.
Rather than leave in humiliation and anger, John is forced to watch, then to participate in ways no straight man could endure. But John was not the man he thought he was and his wife knew it as she trained and commanded him to do unspeakable things, but things he grew to enjoy. His wife Tammy and her new lover would degrade him and turn him from man to timid sissy Jenny… A sissy that would surrender to their commands and “her” new found interests. Between the training, hormones and surgery, Tammy and Bill continued to push the envelope exposing Jenny to the world, humiliating her at every moment especially at the end of this story.
The graphic scenes were very detailed to the point where it put the reader in John’s difficult, but pleasurable positions. That will make you wonder what happened after the story ended.
The last few weeks have given me time to think about a number of things. As a fiction writer and a writer of erotic tales, it’s important that I tell an “entertaining” story and at the same time, not sell out to those who want something so specific it questions my integrity as an independent author. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all of the feedback I get and have never been shy about asking and begging for feedback about my work, but just because someone wants more of “this” or less of “that” doesn’t mean I am simply going to comply. The important thing for me is that I try and reach at least one person – whether they enjoyed the story or not.
While I have some close friends who live near me who have always been supportive and helpful, I get a great deal of feedback from outside the US, which can be exciting knowing that my stories are traveling around the globe, even when it’s a small audience. Over the last few years, I think I have done a great job of being patient when it comes to measuring my success as a writer. I have received quite a bit of feedback related to my work and I am grateful for it. Sometimes I have to beg for feedback, which I really don’t like to do, but I have a few friends who are very helpful and one in particular has been a huge part of my success. I have never met her face to face (not surprising for some of us still in the closet), but her honesty and genuineness has been more than an inspiration to me. She has motivated me without trying. The person I am speaking of is Sally Bend.
I came across Sally’s site via Twitter, where I do most of my book marketing and after reading her reviews of others and having a chance to read her own work, I realized that the style is not important, it’s the interpretation. Sally has reviewed a number of my books and confirmed the direction I was taking with each piece. She is not afraid of giving criticism and at the same time praises authors without spoiling the book.
If you get the chance to visit her site (http://www.sallybend.com) or follower her on Twitter (@bibrary), you won’t be disappointed. Thanks, Sally for your honest and kind words and for reminding me to stay true to who I am… as a writer and as a human being.
Sally was gracious enough to post a web interview with me some time back… Check it out here.
