Dear Readers,

I hold my hands up: I'm stuck in a rut. For three years and counting I've been hopelessly in love with the same guy - and the closest we've ever got is a drunken arse grab (NB: this doesn't count). My favourite hobby is googling cats for spinsters and I'm sick of my shoestring salary that barely pays for my shoebox flat.

I need a head-to-toe life makeover. Enter my 'Year of Saying Yes', which is where you come in. To help me sort out my sorry life, I need you to #DareIzzy. For the next 12 months I'll be saying 'yes' to your challenges, no matter how wild, adventurous or plain nuts they are. 'No' is not an option!

Here goes... Wish me luck! I'm going to need it.

Love,

Izzy x

Alexis (Amazon user)

He was a completely normal neighbour on the outside. But inside? I was the only one who knew what went on in there. I've sat below this open window for years listening to the enjoyment of the scandalous women he takes home each weekend.

I couldn't help but play with myself as I listened. I enjoyed getting off before hitting the town with Sarah. She was a little more adventurous than I was, and we usually went our separate ways, but not tonight. Tonight, she would bring me along on one of her sexcapades.

My cravings became much more real after that night. Sarah wasn't around this weekend to help me satisfy them, so I decided to find out exactly what happened on the other side of my neighbour's window...

Enjoy your reading time again!

Sleepwalking: A Lesbian Romance Novella

How many times have you walked past your soul mate before you noticed her?

College senior Leah McAllister is quickly approaching a new chapter of her life, and she's not ready for any of the things that come after graduation. The job market is grim, adult responsibility looms, and when her job writing for the school paper sends her to interview the magnetic Morgan, she even begins questioning her sexuality.

Morgan Park, a few years older and more worldly than Leah, seems to have it all - or at least she did, until her girlfriend started showing signs of bipolar disorder just as they decided to start a family together. Now her life is unraveling before her eyes and she just needs something - or someone - to hold onto.

Life in a small town has been weaving Leah and Morgan slowly together, but their worlds collide in one intense meeting that leaves them each with a decision to make - follow their hearts to each other, or go their separate ways and keep sleepwalking through life.

This 15,000-word novella is the prequel to Cara Malone's debut novel, Awakened (April 2017).

Laurel and James met and fell in love almost instantly. They spent every waking minute together when they were young and after high school graduation, they made sure they attended the same college. During their junior year, James proposed to Laurel and she, of course, said yes. They were elated that their love had endured high school and college.

Both successful in their respective careers, James and Laurel began to spend an increasing amount of time working, hiding behind their smart phones, watching television, and it was no surprise when they began to drift away from each other.

Their level of intimacy over the years had become mundane, mechanical, and obligatory rather than passionate, carefree, and loving. There was no question that they were still in love with one another, but the newness and excitement of the marriage had worn off and like a stick of chewing gum that had lost its flavor, they both needed something more.

Little did James know that Laurel had an itch that needed scratching and that itch would come in the form of a fascinating, beautiful woman, the adventure was about to begin!

If You Say So, Professor!: The Adventures of Dr. Delphine Dupont 1

The gym session went well. Dressed in her black sports bra and tight black shorts, Dr. Dupont was actually conscious of several pairs of eyes on her as she began her 20-minute workout on the exercise bicycle. She didn't really mind the attention; in fact, she would not be wearing that rather skimpy sports bra if she had really objected. But quite a lot depended, naturally enough, on who was paying the attention. Today she was conscious that a young female student - not one of her own, incidentally - was glancing in her direction rather frequently. The girl was quite tall with an attractive figure, short fair hair, and smiling blue eyes. She was dressed as if for tennis - a white T-shirt with a collar, short sleeves, and a pleated short white skirt. And she was pulling some weights on a pulley just to the right of where Dr. Dupont was cycling.

The girl had such a ready smile that Dr. Dupont found herself smiling back from time to time. After her cycle ride, she walked over to the drinks fountain, which was a fair distance from the various exercise machines, and she sensed that someone had moved to stand behind her. Sure enough, it was that same girl, and Dr. Dupont was the first to speak: "You looked like you were pulling some pretty heavy stuff there!"

"Oh no, not really. I don't want to bulk up my arms too much."

"I know what you mean! But you look in really great shape," said Dr. Dupont in genuine admiration.

"Why thank you, I'm sure!" The girl looked genuinely delighted. "And so do you!"

Dr. Dupont smiled inwardly at the compliment but tried to appear unmoved.

"What's your major?" the girl asked.

Dr. Dupont smiled inwardly again. That sounded like a nice compliment! I guess this girl must think I'm a student - maybe a mature student!

A short story of lesbian discovery.

More than a month had passed since Raven split with her college boyfriend and she finally felt things were moving along. Fine art was her only real chance of getting an "A" and she was determined to come top of the class. But today she was distracted. Utterly distracted.

Professor Clarke had the class paint hundreds of girls over the years, many fully nude. This model sat with her back to the artists looking over her shoulder. It was modest pose compared to many the class had painted yet Raven stood, brush in hand and stomach full of nerves, barely able to look past her easel.

"Why was I so nervous? I made eye contact with the models plenty of times, but I didn't retreat behind my easel like a child hiding behind her mother's leg. I peeked around the easel, and the same golden eyes met my gaze. She was smiling. Smiling at me."

As the class comes to an end, Raven is stressed and questioning her sexuality. Looking at her progress, she realizes she has no chance of getting an A, unless she cheats. So with the class clearing out and Professor Clarke distracted, Raven decides to smuggle her painting home and do some extra work on it, alone. But her muse has other ideas.

Crystal and Annette enjoy some girl on girl time in the tub then Daria joins the ladies. Then Daria and Tommy the DJ connect and she has an orgasm. But Daria wants more from Annette and Crystal.

Excerpt from Naked Party with the DJ:

Crystal took my hand and led us to one of the bedrooms on the far side of the living room. She and Annette removed their blouses just as I saw piles of clothes spread everywhere in the room. Crystal smiled at me and walked over and, began taking my clothes off.

"It's easier to get naked," she said, "even if you don't want to join in. If what you've seen already doesn't turn you off then nothing else here will. You can participate or not, but it really helps to be naked."

She and Annette looked at each other and laughed and I joined in. "I'm in," I said as the last of what I was wearing hit the floor. I gathered my things together and folded them quickly so I could find them later.

When all three of us were naked Crystal pulled Annette and me to her and we all hugged. "Daria, I would not have brought you here if I didn't think you will enjoy the hell out of it. But, if you ever feel you need to leave, grab me and we'll go, okay?" She asked.

I smiled and leaned over to kiss her. My whole body tingled at the thought of making love to Crystal and Traci, so standing here naked with Crystal and Annette was working its own type of magic on me. That memorable night in the condominium in Vancouver still brought me close to orgasm every time I thought of it. I hadn't seen Traci around campus much, but I sure did think of her at times. And Crystal said she wanted to meet up which was what I had wanted to hear.

Praise for 'Come and Go'

"Imagine Sex and the City or The L Word, set in Hong Kong and you will have a hint of what the book has to offer. Come and Go is basically a unique Hong Kong version of lesbian drama."

"Come and Go is a slick, sweet and shockingly steamy read. The writing is light but lucid, expertly flirting with rosy-eyed romance but yanking the reader back to stark reality with accurate and assertive timing."

Captive Girl

In this brilliant dark science fiction story from her collection Unwelcome Bodies, Nebula-nominated Jennifer Pelland confronts the handicap that is normality...

Alice watches the skies with two other saviors of humankind, children who were altered into monsters to save a space colony from an attack like the one that killed Alice's parents. Alice lives in slavery to duty and machines: yet she's content, supported by the love of her minder, Dr. DeVeaux. Marika.

Then the program is shut down, and Alice is forced to return to normal human functionality.

Loss of purpose...loss of time...loss of her machines.

And the revulsion of her beloved Marika, at Alice's loss of helplessness.

"Her already-glowing reputation may still be just a hint of promising light on the horizon of those who like their fantastic fiction smart, imaginative, and driven by the mysteries of the human spirit, but each new story as brilliant as 'Brushstrokes' and 'The Last Stand of the Elephant Man' brings her inevitable future even closer. Trust me on this: Jennifer Pelland's star has only just begun to rise."

--Adam-Troy Castro, author of Emissaries From the Dead

"Jennifer Pelland is addicted to writing short stories. She's written an essay about this addiction but you don't need to read the essay to know it's true. Each of the tales in this collection is a testament to her love of story-telling, and her imagination. She has a keen sense of irony, and a gift for juxtaposing images and events in a way which enables her to extract emotion at crucial moments from her characters and from the reader."

--theshortreview.com

"Jennifer Pelland is a very good writer. She can evoke a setting, an environment, a mood in just a few sentences. And she does it so intensely that the reader really feels the fear of touching any potentially diseased subway riders; feels the thirst of a world without water; feels the aloneness that comes behind the metal mask."
