A Re-release from Lucy Felthouse – The Sweetest Revenge (@cw1985) #ff #lesbian #lesfic

Hi all,

I’m delighted to announce that one of my older stories, my sexy spanking F/F tale, The Sweetest Revenge, has been re-released! I received the rights back, so I’ve given it a beautiful new cover, courtesy of Studioenp, and it’s now back on digital shelves for just 99c.

Here’s what it’s all about:

Abigail’s had a crush on Mackenzie the motorcycle courier for months, but Mackenzie doesn’t even know she exists. Nothing exists for Mackenzie, though, except for her pride and joy—her Ducati Monster.

After an unpleasant encounter, Abigail decides to get her own back on Mackenzie—in the worst possible way. Despite the pleas of her colleagues, Abigail plans to hide Mackenzie’s precious motorbike, and take the haughty so and so down a peg or two.

Naturally, when Mackenzie discovers her bike is gone, there are fireworks. It’s April 1st, so she suspects trickery rather than criminal activity, but that doesn’t mean the person responsible will be getting off lightly…

Entertainment for Entertainment’s Sake by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)

Hi everyone,

Today I’d like to talk about entertainment for entertainment’s sake, or TV show/film/book shaming.

Lately I’ve noticed a bit of a trend online, whereby people “shame” others for watching certain TV shows or films, or reading certain books. I felt it was a topic worth discussing… so here I am.

Personally, I watch all kinds of TV shows and films, and read all kinds of books. As long as I’m entertained, it doesn’t really matter to me what the genre is (though obviously there are some genres I don’t enjoy at all), or the tone, etc. Sometimes I’m in the mood for something dark and totally gripping, sometimes I’m in the mood for something dramatic, and sometimes I’m in the mood for something light, funny, something I don’t have to think about too much, or all of those things. That’s my preference, my personal opinion.

So why, then, do people feel the need to shame others for watching/reading certain things? I joined in with a discussion about a certain TV show a while back, and while on the one hand people were commenting saying how much they enjoyed the show, too, some others jumped in and started picking it apart, saying the show was inaccurate (I hadn’t noticed), lacked substance, and so on. I didn’t argue, because that’s not my bag, but it did irritate me. It felt as though myself and the others who’d stated they enjoyed the show were being shamed for liking a show that “lacked substance.” Granted, it is what I’d call a light and fluffy show, and doesn’t require you to think about it an awful lot. But for me, that’s the charm. Sometimes all I want to do is plonk myself down in front of TV and be entertained, and smile, and laugh, and be charmed by something. For me, that show ticked those boxes.

So why is that wrong? Are we only “allowed” to enjoy deeply cerebral TV shows, films and books? Or are we only “allowed” to admit to those things which educate us or make us think? Do we have to keep our enjoyment of entertainment for entertainment’s sake under wraps? Why should we?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that inaccuracy is okay – research can easily prevent that, but mistakes happen. The editor in me picks up on them frequently – in fact I watched a show recently (one of the dark, totally gripping ones, actually!) which completely hooked me. I thought it was fantastic, but I did notice some continuity errors. They bugged me a bit, but not enough for me to stop watching the show, or even comment on it anywhere – life’s too short. But when I Googled afterwards, I saw articles dedicated to pointing out those issues and slating the entire show!

So, let’s discuss. Where do you stand on this debate? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Reading (or watching),

Lucy xx

New Charity Anthology – United in Love edited by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)

Hi folks,

I’m still in deadline hell, so this is just a flying visit to let you know that a project I’ve been working on for a while, United in Love, is now available! It’s a charity anthology where all proceeds are being donated to the British Red Cross’s UK Solidarity Fund. I hope you’ll consider checking it out, and please do spread the word far and wide!

Blurb:

The world could use a lot more love, which is why being united in love is the theme of this short story collection. Each of the characters are dealing with horrific and heartbreaking situations—loss, grief, war, divorce, dementia, disputes over land and more, but what they all have in common is that, with the help of love, of unity, they come through. It may not be all happily-ever-after—since life just doesn’t work that way—but positivity and solidarity shine through in each of the tales and will warm your heart.

So enjoy these stories of unexpected companionship, old lovers reuniting, second chances and creative problem-solving, with the knowledge that the proceeds from your purchase will also have a deeply positive effect—with every penny going to the British Red Cross’s UK Solidarity Fund.
