Scarlet Woman


The August issue of Scarlet is out and their "Juicy Bits" feature this month is a short extract from my contemporary paranormal novel Wildwood. I picked the scene where Avril has just had a shag and a massive argument with Michael, and then he fucks her on the public road over the hood of his 4x4. The emotional rawness of the powerplay makes it one of my favourite and dirtiest scenes. And not a minotaur-fairy in sight.

I'm in good (and familiar) company, because my Juicy Bit sits right next to short stories by Emily Dubberley (pizza delivery with extra topping), Jeremy Edwards (f/f in the swimming pool) and Charlotte Stein (a quicky with a builder). Heh heh. We get everywhere.

You can download Scarlet here, if you can't buy hardcopy. And it's cheaper.
