Just a quick word about the Read an Ebook Sale that starts tomorrow (Sunday, March 3) at Smashwords. You can find all the Miriam pen-name stories here. I’ve put everything on 50% off. The sale ends March 9.

And yes, I’ve been busy, though not as much with writing or publishing. I’m slowly getting back on track and hope to do the Humpday stories again.



Humpday Story: Hunting the Billionaire Dinosaur


A warm bowl of minestrone soup and a cool glass of lemonade. Everything Millie Samson needs to get away from the weirdness of working for a billionaire dinosaur shapeshifter.

Humpday Story: Death of a Retail Associate

Death-of-a-Retail-Associate-GenericAdam knew exactly what hit him. A cardboard box full of metal hardware—wall brackets, t-stand arms, and pegs for hurdle fixtures. The dumb box weighed a hundred pounds. And it fell on top of his head. 

One thing to die at work, another to die in an elevator while listening to Christmas music. 

A sexy encounter from beyond the grave at a department store. If you enjoy strange fantasy erotica, be sure to read Death of a Retail Associate. Continue reading “Humpday Story: Death of a Retail Associate”

Humpday Story: Femme Phobia


The dark, clowns, and women—three things Jeremy Price fears.

When he seeks out Dr. Jane Bernstein’s help, little choice remains but to face those fears one by one. But even in the safety of Dr. Jane’s office, that last fear can be paralyzing.

Friendly, supportive, but certainly no sexual object, Dr. Jane treats Jeremy as an equal. As a person. Unlike the other women in his life. Even so, Jeremy struggles with one simple request.

He’d rather lay on the sofa than sit in the chair. Aren’t therapy sessions supposed to be that way?

If you enjoy quirky cougar erotica, be sure to read Femme Phobia.

When I washed dishes in the evening, I often got the pleasure of watching her walk out of the building and to her car.

I spent extra time, making sure my dishes were well scrubbed, but I never paid much attention to them. I’d lean against the counter, pressing my boner against the cabinet and imagine pressing up against her firm body. She was shorter than me by a lot, so I daydreamed about my cock against her stomach, with the head right below her breasts. Continue reading “Sunday Quickie: Neighbor With Benefits”
