Freebie Fiction Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then it must be time to bend our way into the weekend with Freebie Fiction Friday.

Every Friday I search through the weekend's free titles on Amazon, looking for those that might be of interest to readers, fans, and lovers of bending gender and sexuality. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, and covert it (if need be) with Calibre. I can tell you I do most of my reading on my tablet, using Kindle for PC, and it works beautifully.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, though, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

Chronicles of a Humiliation Backfired by Moctezuma Johnson (#smutpunk)

If you have ever wondered what the term smutpunk refers to, then look no further. Chronicles of a Humiliation Backfired is a "taboo psycho-thriller" from Moctezuma Johnson that is just . . . well, it has to be experienced to be believed.

This is a book that had me raising my eyebrows and dropping my jaw, often at the same time. It is insane, it is explicit, and it is original. When an author can deliver on all of those things, you know you are in for a good long-term relationship . . . but, then again, I already knew that from his Steak & BJ Futa Bundle.

Just as the cover blurb promises, this is a pornographic psycho-thriller about obsession, revenge, and the razor edge between love and hatred. It is weird, twisted, bizarre, and all kinds of kinky. What holds it all together is the characters, who are absolutely fantastic. Moctezuma, Jinx, Jenny, Tasha, and all the rest are well-developed in their own perverse way. Love them or hate them, it is hard not to envy them all.

There are a lot of fetishes in this book, with ass-to-mouth central to the whole story, but you could say it is a book about cum - eating cum, wearing cum, storing cum, using cum, and absorbing cum. These girls (Jinx especially) are absolutely mad for Moctezuma's cum, and they don't lack for imagination in how to enjoy it. There is a good amount of humiliation involved in the act of harvesting, but it is erotic, rather than cruel, with everyone taking some degree of pleasure from the experience.

Of course, beneath all the fetishes, the humiliation, the rambling narrative, and the sheer insanity, there is also a story. It takes a while for it to become clear, to rise above the insane mess, but rest assured all that madness and jealousy is going somewhere. If you are a smutpunk fan, you have probably already read this . . . and, if not, Chronicles of a Humiliation Backfired is a great place to begin.

Moctezuma mixes cyberpunk, futanari, pop art, comics, splatterpunk, and erotica in a high-pitched gender-bender genre-blender running on high. That's why they call him King Smutpunk. If you want to taste what bestselling author Linzi Basset calls "that imminent euphoria that MJ excels at" then you need to start drinking smutpunk up.

Bangkok Noir by Lisabet Sarai (#femdom #bdsm #thriller)

One of the most original books I have encountered in quite some time, Bangkok Noir is a story that I felt was somewhat unbalanced in its straddling of genres, but well-told, and exquisitely detailed. Lisabet Sarai captures the essence of the Bangkok experience beautifully, delivering on the language quirks and cultural nuances that really serve to orient the reader in the world of Diana and her girls.

Let me address that straddling of genres first. This is a story comprised of erotica, murder mystery, and thriller, with the erotica looming large over the narrative, but with the murder mystery dominating the reader's thoughts. I actually expected more of the murder mystery, given the gruesomeness of the killings and the way they serve to bring all the characters together, but it remains in the background for much of the story. As for the erotica element, it (no pun intended) dominates the story, with several relationships, dominant figures of different genders, and as much pain as pleasure. It is there where Diana - the Professor - really comes into her own, although she is a caring woman and a smart businesswoman outside the dungeon.

As for the plot, it is somewhat serpentine, winding through different subplots along the way. Sarai does a fantastic job of maintaining the suspense, giving us just enough clue to suspect several different people of being the killer, yet never makes us feel cheated as the truth is revealed. The subplot involving the offer to buy Diana's bar, and the exploration of just how dark the upper class can be, is fascinating as well, introducing even more suspicions.

While I am sure the culture would have come across well in the reading, listening to Bangkok Noir as an audiobook really brings Bangkok to life. I struggled with it a bit as first, but once I settled in, it really worked for me, Jazmin Kensington does an amazing job of capturing the different voices and nailing the different accents, even varying the speed with which each character talks.

This is a dark story that takes a realistic look at the professional BDSM lifestyle, and which deals with the pressures that make such release valuable, if not essential to emotional survival.

A dozen years ago Lisabet Sarai experienced a serendipitous fusion of her love of writing and her fascination with sex. Since then she has published two single author short story collections and six erotic novels, including the classic RAW SILK. Dozens of her shorter works have been released as ebooks and in print anthologies. She edited the acclaimed anthologies SACRED EXCHANGE and CREAM and is currently responsible for the altruistic erotica series COMING TOGETHER PRESENTS.

Mistress Of The Air by S. Nano (#femdom #trans #steampunk)

As a fan of S. Nano's Dungeon Mistress Adventures and Adventures in Fetishland, I was definitely eager to give Mistress Of The Air a read . . . and I am delighted to say it is, far and away, my favorite!

This is a comic BDSM-themed steampunk adventure that delivers on every one of those terms. It is funny, it is sexy, and it is exciting, often at the very same time, and even more often in the most inappropriate ways. The characters are parodies and caricatures in many respects, poking fun at Victorian literature, vintage science fiction, pulp adventure, and contemporary erotica, but they are also engaging personalities with whom you cannot help but fall in love.

Lady Sally Rudston-Chichester is a spoiled rich heiress whose innocent sort of arrogance makes her a delight; Victoria is her transvestite maid, an obedient submissive who provides much of the comic relief; and Borghild is her automaton sex-doll, a steampunk marvel that never tires; while Captain Wyndham is the only 'normal' member of the crew, a man with whom Lady Sally flirts uncontrollably, but who is there more to observe on the reader's behalf than to be dominated.

Then, of course, there is the duke, bishop, lawyer, and banker, who are there to be the objects of Lady Sally's whips, floggers, paddles, strap-ons, and steampunk sex toys - which, more often than not, malfunction in glorious moments of painful excess. While they do not get to demonstrate a lot of personality, I loved how the bishop goes to great lengths to keep his vows of chastity while being punished and penetrated. There are also family members of Lady Sally's throughout the world, on whom she descends to impose herself, and who cause no end of mischief in trying to claim her airship for their own means.

There is a plot here, with a comical series of events that keep the adventure moving, but they are secondary to the sexual exploits. I have, quite honestly, never had so much fun with a story as I did with Mistress Of The Air. It was everything I could have wanted from S. Nano, and so much more. If you can stand a little tongue-in-cheek while enjoying steampunk-fired dildos jack-hammering between other cheeks, then this is a must-read.

S. Nano is an author of erotic stories with dark and exotic content in fantasy, paranormal or historical settings, often drawing on the themes of female supremacy, BDSM and fetish but with a seam of quirky humour running through them as well.

Amie Heights the Complete Collection (#trans #femdom #pegging)

I have had my eye on Amie Heights for quite some time now, seeing in her an author who crosses lines (and boundaries) in playing to many of my fetishes. I originally had her pegged for my upcoming Weekend Diversions & Perversions feature (more on that soon), but there the more I read, the more I realized she belongs in the spotlight with all my bent friends! I will leave you to discover the true breadth of her talents in Amie Heights the Complete Collection, but there are a few stories I absolutely have to highlight:

A Toy for Her Men is a fun femdom tale surrounding a most unusual exchange of birthday presents. It may be Anna's birthday, but it is the pegging that she intends to give Josh and Todd that makes the occasion such a delight, Fun, sexy, and marked by some great dialogue.

Double Creampie Clean-Up starts with a clever twist of an age-old porn staple, with Rebecca offering to help out a pair of young movers. Light on plot, it is a very sexy, very messy tale of an open-minded threesome with two horny guys who do not mind cleaning up each other's messes.

Her New Cock is pretty much exactly what you would expect, a story of a young woman who wakes up to find something new in her panties. I loved how Amie had her explore her new genitalia, especially when it proves long enough for her to provide her own oral pleasure, but it is arrival of her roommates - Stacy and Steve - who put it over the top.

How to Trans Your Dragon was a definite favorite of mine, putting a new spin on the fantasy trope of sacrificing virgins to appease the dragon. Thad thinks a bit of awkward crossdressing will be enough to save his fiancee, Anisha from being eaten, but what he does not know is that the dragon has other things in mind for his sacrifices . . . and a little gender-bending magic ensures that Thad the maiden does not remain a virgin for long.

I Make Him Wear My Panties was a delightful surprise, a story that kept me guessing with where it was going to go next. There is some great interplay between Tanner and Charity before anything sexual happens, and I loved how the panties were just another toy for their adventures, something soft and pretty and alluring, but not at all effeminate/

MILFs Strap It On and Gangbang His Ass was another favorite, both for the content and for the attitude. Once again, Amie writes of a birthday party where everyone gets a gift, leading a gang of forty-something beauties to seduce their young chauffeur and bring him home to try out their toys on. Passionate and uninhibited, I loved the women here, and I loved how eager Joey is to submit. There is no real force or dominance here, and enjoying the multiple penetrations does not make Joey any less of a man. It is just fun, open-minded sex, and it is hot!

There were plenty of other stories here that I enjoyed, dealing with lactation fetishes, demons, tentacles, bukkake, and more, but the stories above are those that were suitably bent. Well-written, open-minded (I keep coming back to that word) and thoroughly enjoyable. With 38 48 stories (Amie updated it today!) in one collection, you will not find a better deal.

Amie is originally from Nebraska. She moved to Oregon when she was 5 and grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Amie has been writing since she started college in 1992. At graduation Amie started writing erotica exclusively and has recently started publishing her works online. Amie works full time as a server and plays full time as a tom girl.

Shelley: Box Set 1 by J.C. Winchester (#trans #romance #bisexual)

Shelley: Box Set 1 collects the first four erotic transsexual romances by J.C. Winchester, and it is an altogether lovely collection with a wonderful romantic progression and significant character development throughout.

In First Meeting we are introduced to a waitress by the name of Shelley, and a regular customer named Matt. The two have been happily flirting for years, but have never taken their relationship beyond the restaurant . . . until Shelley finally puts her heart on the line and invites him back to her place for a drink. Winchester does a great job of establishing the characters here, making us care about them from the start, and handles the reveal of Shelley's transsexual nature both realistically and compassionately.

With the relationship secure, Cruise of Lust sees the wonderful couple enjoying a little romance at sea. As if the gift of a cruise were not enough, Matt surprises Shelley with one run by and for an LGBT crowd. It is an environment where she can freely be herself, without the need to hide the evidence of her transsexual nature, and that leads to a wonderfully exhibitionist sort of freedom. Here we really get to see Shelley's playful side, sharing in her joy of acceptance. There is some interesting talk of LGBT relationships as well, which not only develops their relationship, but expand Matt's legal clientele.

In The Resort, Shelley is exhausted from her first semester at school, and Matt is overwhelmed at the office. Still very much in love, they decide to join their friends from the cruise to help build an exclusive forest getaway and enjoy some open-minded camping. It is here where the story really begins to open up, as Shelley continues exploring the newfound freedom to express her sexuality, and Matt begins preparing himself to confront his own sexual inhibitions. The introduction of Allie and Katie makes for a wonderful addition to the story, opening up an interesting exploration of pansexual attraction, and allowing Shelley to bring a transsexual lover to their bed who understands her needs, her desires, and her emotions.

The Cabin takes the idea of pansexuality and open relationships even further, with the two couples taking a private vacation together. With a cisgender man and woman, and the two transsexual women who love them, the variety here of experience here is wonderful. There is a testing limits, an exploration of hidden desires, and the revelation of a new level of intimacy for all. There are firsts for both Shelley and Matt that are too exciting to spoil by talking about here, but I loved the way Winchester detailed those encounters, really making the reader appreciate how different sex can be. This chapter is about far more than just sex, however, as the experiences bring Shelley and Matt even closer, bonding them emotionally.

A lovely collection of sweet romance and tasteful erotica, Shelley: Box Set 1 is an absolute delight to read.

JC Winchester grew up reading just about anything he could get his hands on, from cereal boxes to the Hardy Boys. He loves most forms of fiction, particularly fantasy and military sci-fi. When not writing he can usually be found taking care of the horses on his place, riding, hiking, fishing, or the never ending task of splitting firewood.

The Misadventures of Ka-Ron the Knight by Donald Allen Kirch (#trans #fantasy)

My introduction to the "Nown" World Chronicles came about 6 years ago, when I did a lovely little interview with Donald Allen Kirch. I had the opportunity to review the adventures of Ka-Ron and Jatel as they were released over the next two years, and still count the books among my favorite fantasy trilogies.

Now, as the rights to each book revert back to him, Donald is releasing them with a few minor tweaks and some gorgeous new covers. First up, of course, is The Misadventures of Ka-Ron the Knight . . . which I am pleased to say has stood the test of time, and is still an epic, gender-bending read.

This is the kind of book that takes me back to the classic, pulp fantasy novels that I so fondly remember from my high school years. From the plot, to the characters, to the narrative voice, it reminds me at times of authors like Robert E. Howard, Fritz Leiber, and Michael Moorcock. Whereas the trend over the past decade has been towards sad and painful works of grimdark fantasy, this is a return to old-fashioned sword & sorcery fun.

As you might expect from a book about a legendary warrior cursed to live out his life as a beautiful woman, this is also a story with a fair bit of sex (and sexual innuendo), but it is done in a very clever and amusing way. Yes, Ka-Ron awakes from her transformation as an incredibly beautiful, sexually insatiable woman, but there are magical reasons for it . . . and very real consequences because of it. Aside from the sex, there are also some interesting explorations of gender here. Alternately comic and tragic, Ka-Ron’s efforts to adapt to her new situation reveal a hidden depth of maturity and sophistication that you rarely find in erotica.

Readers who find the initial sexual explorations to be a bit too much are strongly advised to stick with it, as there is a wonderfully exciting fantasy tale to follow. As they battle their way through pirates, hungry sea-dragons, a coven of vampires, an undersea realm, and an insane elven king, our heroes find new companions in the form of a wizard, a dwarf, an elf, a vampire, and a man-child upon whom both the curse and the story eventually turn. Ka-Ron and Jatel are the primary POV characters here, but Keeth, Molly, Rohan, and Dorian (especially Dorian!) round out the story perfectly.

The story does turn from comic to dark in the latter chapters, especially with the threat of an elven civil war, but Donald paces it well, knowing just when a bit of humour or sexual adventure is needed. At the same time, he resists the temptation to spice things up just for the sake of spicing things up, allowing the story to carry us along. By the end, we have formed strong bonds with all the characters, and their parting from us is indeed sweet sorrow . . . although we will see them again.

Like I said at the beginning, six years later the story still stands up, and it is just as much of a delight as I remember. In the end, Ka-Ron is far more than just a gender-swapped heroine, and her story works on all levels.

Donald Allen Kirch lives in The United States of America. He is an avid reader of history, Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, the paranormal, and is a "hardcore" Doctor Who fan. After spending two weekends in the famous "Sallie House," a "haunted house" in Atchison, Kansas, he is one of the only authors of his craft who can claim to have been attacked by a ghost!

PROMised: Transformed Into a Girl for Prom by Courtney Captisa (#genderswap #fiction)

If you are going to do a PG-rated magical gender transformation story, then you absolutely need to nail the details that make it work. With no erotic elements with which to engage (or distract) the reader, you need to really focus on the everyday aspects of suddenly living as the opposite gender.

Fortunately, Courtney Captisa has always understood that better than most, but PROMised: Transformed Into a Girl for Prom is a marvellously successful story even for her!

As the story opens, Justin is consoling his best friend, whose girlfriend announced a surprise move just a week before prom. Seeing Liam so confused and heartbroken, Justin promises to find him a new date for prom . . . only to wake up the next morning as a girl named Paige. Even if it is something of a genre cliche, the whole idea of suddenly waking up in a new gender, and having nobody else recognize the fact, can be a lot of fun - if, as I mentioned earlier, it is done well.

Courtney captures the experience perfectly, not only dealing with the hair, clothing, and makeup, but things we take for granted like social interaction. Boys and girls socialize differently, and their friendships involve different verbal and visual interactions. It is subtle stuff that comes naturally to us, but which has to be relearned with an overnight gender swap. Not surprisingly, Paige struggles with it, but I loved the way she used the history of text messages and photos on her cellphone to learn about her new world and how she interacts with people.

While I thought Paige and Liam came up with a plausible explanation for his transformation a little too quickly, I liked how it played out, and how to had to repeatedly adjust their expectations as new circumstances opened up new questions. The final reveal/twist is an especially nice touch, and one I admit I did not see coming.

Getting back to those details, though, PROMised would be worth the price of admission just for the experience of being Transformed Into a Girl for Prom. That is where Courtney really nails the story, covering the whole experience - the dress, the shoes, the hair, the makeup - in a way that will have readers swooning in delight. Just an altogether fun read that more than delivers on its PROMise. :)

Courtney Captisa has had a strong interest in transformation since childhood. In her early teens, she discovered several webpages such as Fictionmania. She enjoys writing clean stories.

Perils of Paul: Initiation by Valerie Whip & Annabelle Brito (#femdom #pegging #erotica)

Although it clearly shares some of the same themes as Perils of Paul: Consequences, I am not really clear on whether Perils of Paul: Initiation is intended to be a sequel. Other than a brief mention of "humiliating experience with dominant women in his younger years" in the cover blurb, it does not appear as if the Paul here shares the history of the Paul there. It is not really important to the story, but it is something that certainly played on my mind, as I kept expecting some reference or comparison to his past submission.

That question aside, Valerie Whip has written a fun bit of erotica here, to which Annabelle Brito once again adds her sexy illustrations. Paul is a young man in college who strikes up a friendship with the beautiful Lacy. He likes her, and would like to be more than friends, so he reluctantly agrees to be part of her sorority initiation, hoping her gratitude will lead to something more.

That initiation is well done, with three young couples blindfolded, carted off to a strange house, and subjected to some kinky bondage games. It is a well-told story, distinguished as much by the dialogue as the erotic details - which included bondage, oral worship, and pegging. It is definitely edgy, riding that fine line of dubcon, and the subtle, open-ended twist at the end is a nice touch.

Valerie Whip has enjoyed living the submissive and the dominant role in her daily life. She relishes the feelings of control or lack of control. She likes taking everyday circumstances and twisting them into stories that others can play out. She has been writing for more than 10 years now and can’t seem to stop composing scenarios that evoke steamy sexual encounters for others. She has to take frequent breaks in her endeavor to compose herself after becoming extremely wet and ready while telling her tales. She hopes you enjoy her stories as much as she does writing them.

Annabelle Brito is an artist and fan of erotic feminization literature. Annabelle is known as the artist for The Rikki Blackwell’s underground hit, The Martin Hastings Saga and recently Kylie Gable’s critically acclaimed The Jaguar series. Annabelle also curates the Force Feminization Illustration Art blog.
