"Dirtyville: 13 Tales of Small Town Naughty" was released a bit over a week ago, and it features not one but two of the Coffee-Fueled team in its e-pages (Emma Hillman and yours truly).
I'm still in a state of delight to have my work sharing space with Ms. Hillman, and with other such luminaries as Scarlett Greyson, Alison Tyler and Sommer Marsden (who conceived, recruited, edited and published this lovely piece of smut).
I wasn't at all surprised at the quality of work the four aforementioned ladies produced. Each of their stories, though quite different from each other, was very well constructed and written.
The strict word limit for these stories was between 300 and 1,000. Normally, you'd think it near impossible to construct a story in that length, let alone create interesting characters to fill it. Normally, it is.
But in Emma's story, "Only On Sundays" I got a wonderful sense of who Jessica was...and who she might want to be as well. I could see the small town around these people, and the way their secrets would keep them all simmering...all day, all week...
Very nice work, Emma.
