It has certainly been a while since I dipped my virtual pen into the ink well and gave vent to my pearls of wisdom or whatever it is I give vent to (answers please on a postcard)! Enough of this waffle, the purpose of this post is to let you know that my collection of short stories, The First Time is available (http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-First-Time-ebook/dp/B00AIK0DD6).
In this collection of short stories I explore why young women enter the world of prostitution while other stories look at what happens when the
worlds of sex and technology collide.
In “The First Time”, the first story in this collection, we meet Becky a young graduate who enters the world of prostitution in order to clear her debts.
The story looks at the effects of prostitution on Becky and her fellow escort and friend Julie. In “The Pain Behind the Smile” Issie presents her friend,
Peter with a birthday cake, however things are not what they seem.
In “Lucy” the acquaintances of a crusty old bachelor speculate how he could attract and retain the affections of a beautiful young woman. As with “The
Pain Behind the Smile” things are far from what they seem.
“Hemlock” explores what happens when machines attain the capacity to appreciate high culture. The story is both humorous and deeply serious.
I’d be interested to hear what you think of The First Time. Please feel free to leave a review on Amazon.
