Polished Prose

Today I have a brand new story up at Oysters & Chocolate Erotic. I'm very pleased to offer you the emotionally delicate and slightly weird "In My Father's Footsteps."

“There was a picture of you with his things. I found it years later, when I took stuff out of storage.”

“That’s sweet. A snapshot from the seventies, huh?” She chuckled. “God, what was I wearing?”

I shook my head “no,” and Vicky caught my meaning and blushed.

I'm also very pleased that I lucked into finding the perfect image to place here in conjunction with my story announcement:

Thanks, O&C! (And Kiwi.)

Oh my goodness...I'm behind on reading and just got to this. What a beautiful, incredible story, Jeremy. I think it's one of the first I've read from you that I didn't find as having comedic overtones—and I am so deeply impressed by that contrasting orientation/tone and its emotion, ambiguity (I loved the description near the end around uncertainty), evocativeness, and eroticism. Wow. Thank you so much.

Wow, thank you so much, Emerald! I'm so delighted the piece resonated in these ways. (Thank you also for the wonderful comment at the O&C site!)
