Friday Excerpt: A New Nano

Friday Excerpt: A New Nano

It’s that time of year again! Even though I’m a professional writer and I write nearly every day, I still enjoy doing Nanowrimo. It gives me an excuse to do something challenging or different.  In the interest of challenge, I’ve decided to attempt to complete two projects this November.  1) The first is a huge departure for me. I got an idea for an amateur sleuth character (I watch a ton of detective shows, so I’m not surprised that my subconscious decided it wanted to try writing one). What makes this really different is that the character is a female wheelchair user. What can I say? Olive just came to me and she was so delightful that I had to write about her. 2) In the second half of the month I’ll be trying out the...

Friday Excerpt: new (W)hole

I first finished (W)hole in 2009 and it quickly took on a life of its own, being the only novel of its kind. There has yet to be another book telling the inside story of what it is like to be a disability devotee. Written by a devotee for devotees and for anyone else who is curious about sexuality and what it is like to grow up with a sexual desire that frightens you.  This month (W)hole transforms. It’s second edition is being published through Dev Love Press and it has gone through a series of revisions to improve it. There is now more of the male perspective, as Stewart gets more chapters in his point of view.  Here is one of these new chapters… This was a mistake. Stewart pushed through a hallway thick with people, watching the ground and...

Friday Story: Mariann, Dancing Alone

This is an older story. I wrote it when I was in high school! (Some thirteen years ago now. Yikes). The last scene makes me cry every time. I don’t have  a cover for this yet, but I think I’ll get one put together today because they are fun to make. Hope you enjoy! Mariann, Dancing Alone by Ruth Madison Copyright 1998 by Ruth Madison             Mariann woke up with her fingers tapping the Cha-cha against the blanket.  She turned her face off the pillow and looked at her little purple clock.  Hrmph, she thought, and blinked blearily.  She sat up on her bed and ran fingers through her mass of red hair and let it fall back against her shoulders.  She stretched forward, touching her toes with her fingers.  Her fingers were strong and defined;...

Friday Story: Coworker Crush

Friday Story: Coworker Crush

Fair warning, this story is more explicit than most of mine. It’s an attempt at something closer to erotica! This story is a blind hero, the only one I’ve got so far and the story is loosely based on something that happened at my work place! 😉 Coworker Crush by Ruth Madison Copyright 2011 by Ruth Madison I press the palms of my hands on the smooth, cool surface of the conference table and lean back in my chair, waiting for everyone else to arrive. I love Monday mornings. I know that sounds pathetic, but it’s the best time for me to see Adam while there’s nothing else I need to do. At the weekly meeting I have nothing to contribute, so I can just sit and look at him all I want. He doesn’t know I’m watching him because he’s blind. Though...

Friday Story: The Happiness Pact

I wrote this story ages ago. Like, seriously, ages ago. When I was a teenager like the characters here. I don’t know if it holds up to my later writing. I think I have been improving! It does, however, have a couple of the very sweetest love stories I’ve ever written. My fondness for Alex knows no bounds. This is another story that I might have to work on expanding. What do you think? Should I expand and rework this into a fuller piece? (Cover image from http://www.sxc.hu) When geeky Sophie moves to a new school she has the bad luck to fall for the coolest guy in school. But Jake is dealing with a changing life and rescuing Sophie from her clumsiness might be just what he needs. The Happiness Pact by Ruth Madison Copyright 2011            ...

Friday Story: Guru’s Grace

This week I’m continuing with the Indian theme! This short story has appeared in a collection, but has never been sold on its own. I wrote this while visiting an ashram in southern India. I think you’re really going to enjoy it!   Guru’s Grace by Ruth Madison Copyright 2011 by Ruth Madison   Sumitra knew what her parents were going to ask the guru.  She was turning twenty-nine in two month’s time and they were beyond desperate to get her married.  She went along to try to be a good daughter, but in her heart she knew she could never be happy with the men her parents found and finding one on her own was close to impossible.  There was one very specific thing she needed in a man and she could never tell anyone about it. She sat...
