    Would you be willing to send me a copy as well, please?

      No, I’ve stopped doing that because I send the book and that ends the discourse. It feels like being the victim of a rather brutal one night stand.

      I prefer discourse with my readers. That’s my idea of fair payment for my efforts. If people can’t be bothered to do that, here’s the buy link on smashwords https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/remittancegirl

        I apologise. I hadn’t thought about it that way (I’m not a writer, so please forgive my lack of perspective on that). Let me ask you then: what type of discourse do you seek? I genuinely don’t know, so I thought I’d ask rather than guess. I could gush about your writing (because I find it intensely captivating and erotic, as well as refreshingly well done), but that seems somehow superficial. I’m happy to purchase the book, and will do so using the link above. But, if you can articulate what you’re looking for, I’m happy to discuss with you as well.

    RG,

    I find your work fascinating on a number of levels, but the one that intrigues me the most is that your characters often seem to operate at a juncture where they have a deep-seated need, likely a largely NON-sexual one, that they either do not parse even exists, or if they do, they are unable to articulate. Nonetheless, they are able to tap into and expose this need through/during sexual experiences.

    The Waiting Room exemplifies this, and what I liked the most about the story was seeing parts of this process from multiple sides of multiple characters as the story progressed. The crisp conversations between Alex and Marcus put a lot of the underlying emotions in the story into focus for me in a fundamental way. The ending surprised me at first, in part because it seemed quite sudden, and in part because it felt out of character for Sophie. But later I realized it was ideal for Sophie the way they left it. She is self-aware enough to know that something changed in her, but also to recognize that she doesn’t have the foggiest idea where this change will take her. The ending isn’t actually out of character for her – she’s a somewhat different character at that point!

    Thank you for your beautiful stories.
