Hi guys. New York has been my main source of inspiration, and my debut novelette “Smack the Bishop” is up there on Kindle. Bella Christie has written a nice review (below), but I was worried that she is saying that my novelette is too short (16,000 words). So maybe someone can let me know what you think when you get a moment.

“Yes! Let’s hear it for the women! At last, “Smack the Bishop” is a piece of erotica that takes a passing look at a stud stereotype and throws him into the trashcan. Instead we meet Froggie who looks like Art Garfunkel’s younger brother, has ginger hair between his legs and a cherubic piece of equipment. I think I’m in love with Froggie! Thank you Softly for sparing us the monotonous truncheon of implausible dimensions.
The characters are well drawn, and Macy and the girls take control of events, so there is no risk that the women become passive playmates for alpha males. The women’s adventures are Chaucerian, and I found myself laughing out loud at the scrapes they get into, whether in a scene like “Oh Sir Jasper do not touch me!” or a scene like the Raglan House Club, a striptease joint that puts young Froggie onto the stage.
They escape to a millionaire’s playground in Rio de Janeiro. I loved their journey from Stroud, a gritty little town in the Cotswolds, to the wide open spaces of a yacht and a penthouse overlooking the Copacabana beach. Un-put-down-able, and 50 shades better than most. If anything, it all ended too quickly, but I notice that another 3 titles are on their way. Can’t wait!”
