You Might Want Rethink That Look Ashley. It’s A Bit Off Putting

The thing that I dislike about feminism is that it divides the human race. It divides it into two opposing camps, men and women. Yes, I know nature already did that a very long time ago but it didn’t codify it. At the risk of sounding like an old hippy, I think men and women should put aside their differences and work together as a team for the benefit of all. And like any team, they should be realistic about each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

A few questionable observations at the mall

thedailygrime:

Malls are indeed strange places. We have them in England too, but they don’t seem to be quite as odd as yours. We tend to go for pun based names over here. Book shop chain called “Buy The Book”. push bike shops called “Cycle Logical” etc etc. I’m sure you have that kind of nonsense in America as well.

My favorite part about visiting a mall? Meeting new friends!

We live in a small town. The closest thing we have to a mall experience is one-stop shopping for a bottle of Smirnoff, a chicken sandwich and roofing tar thanks to having a True Value hardware store, Subway restaurant and liquor store all joined by a single parking lot. This is the number one complaint by visiting teenaged tourists, who are often found rocking themselves into a coma when their devices lose cell service and they raise their heads to find they are in a wirelessly foresaken land of mall-less-ness.

“WE ARE IN A WIRELESSLY FORESAKEN LAND OF MALL-LESS-NESS!” I hear them scream.

But today I am laughing at them! Ha-Ha-HA! What makes today different? Because I am doing so from a really big mall. How big, you ask? I don’t mean to brag, but let’s just say it has…

Last Monday, I introduced my upcoming novel, Stranger at Sunsetwhich releases June 30th. What a difference a week makes.

Since then, I’ve been busy setting up promotion for the book, and I’m thrilled to learn so many people want to help. THANK YOU to all those who have shared about it already. Your kindness is incredible. 

It’s going to be a busy two weeks, but I’m looking forward to the frenzy of it. Below is a passage I will include in the book. You get to read it here first. ;)

sas_2kindleStranger at Sunset is a departure from a genre I’ve become known for—literary erotica. It’s also my first novel. Those who have read my novellas and flash fiction know that characters drive my stories. As much as I enjoy telling a good tale, I love writing about the motivations and actions of people.
