Freebie Fetish 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 Fetish Friday.

Every Friday I search through the weekend's free titles on Amazon, looking for those that might be of interest to similarly bent readers, fans, and lovers. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, or covert it with Calibre to load onto a Kobo, iPad, or anything else.

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

Alice by Terri Peterson (transgender thriller)

I find myself struggling as to how to approach a book like Alice. This is a dark story of dark deeds, but whether you find in it a victim, a villain, or a combination of both depends on the experiences and moral values that you bring to the story. Terri Peterson has written a thriller that deserves to find a wider audience than it will likely see, and it is one that will challenge readers, even as it entertains them.

Let us begin with the character of Alice . . . about whom I have to be careful what I say, lest I spoil the heart of the story. Alice is more than just Stephen's feminine identity, more than just a "haven from the horrors of life at home, sanctuary from suffering, and a defense against darkness." She is a separate, well-defined character in and of herself, and she is wonderfully complex. Alice will have readers reeling between feelings of sympathy, excitement, empathy, and horror, and what you feel strongest will guide how you judge her actions.

The first third of the story is precisely the kind of edgy, sometimes uncomfortable, erotic drama that Peterson does so well. It feels authentic, especially in how it refuses to shy away from things the fetishizing of the transgender community. We bear witness to gay bathhouse encounters, back seat quickies, outdoor dogging, and the filth of online sexting. Just when you have become lulled into a false sense of security, though, the story throws a few twists at the read. The first two I have already touched upon as much as I can, and the third . . . well, the third ends in murder.

Yes, the middle third of the story deals with multiple acts of cold-blooded, calculated murder. Like the best moral thriller, Peterson challenges the reader to decide for themselves whether these acts can be excused or at least understood. We are presented with a serial killer who has a motive, a drive for justice that, on the surface at least, is something with which we can identify. Whether (or how much) it matters that the killer is sexually aroused by the death-throes of strangulation . . . well, that is left for the reader to decide.

The final third of the story follows the erotic drama into an equally uncomfortable romance, even as it expands on both the themes of moral justice and murderous arousal. It is here where the promised ties to the Smeared Lipstick saga begin to appear, with the need to hide one crime leading to the desire to expose another, and where we are really challenged to make a choice between villain or vigilante. Alice is a dark, well-crafted thriller . . . one with an emotionally troubling heart, and a character who will stick with you long after the final page is turned.

'Terri' Peterson, was born August 19th, 1969, and spent what she referred to as 'a miserably failed experiment in tyranny' at a typical secondary school, where she was bullied relentlessly and made fun of. She left with no regrets, a handful of qualifications for a career in banking, and bitter memories of time spent being the object of ridicule by her peers. Being myopic, gauche, skinny and flat-chested, sporting a head of rich auburn hair, made her a daily target for abuse, which she escaped by becoming immersed in the fantasy world of writing short stories.

Identity Abduction by M.C. Questgend (crossdressing thriller)

Coming out to friends or family as transgender carries with it stresses, anxieties, and fears that most people will never have to face. And, as if rejection were not bad enough, the threat of exposure carries with it a whole new world of pain. When that rejection and exposure opens the door to blackmail, an Identity Abduction is only the start of Eddie's problems.

M.C. Questgend has crafted a dark, trippy story that leaves the reader spinning, never knowing what to expect next. She does such a fantastic job with all the betrayals, I kept getting lulled into thinking things were finally going to be okay, only to be genuinely surprised by the next double-cross. It is a horrible situation Eddie finds himself in, trapped in a foreign country, all alone, with no identity or legal standing, leaving him at the mercy of strangers. It is extreme, over-the-top even, but once you come to understand how it happened and why, the cleverness of it all is chilling.

There are erotic moments here, definitely of the dubious consent variety, but they have a role to play in the larger story. Every action here has a consequence, and no deed goes unpunished. It is a story full of blackmail, domination, humiliation, and more. As the circle of villains keeps expanding, any hope for Eddie's successful transition back to normal life keeps shrinking. If you know M.C. Questgend, then you know her stories are always character-driven, and that motivations are often more important that actions. Keep that in mind, and the final twists will not only validate Eddie's struggles, but they will satisfy your darkest dreams . . . or nightmares, as the case may be.

Even knowing the basic framework, and having chatted over some of the details, reading through the final draft of Identity Abduction still got my heart racing.

Born in 1971, M.C. Questgend traveled the country with his parents as a military brat. Settling in Texas where he was first introduced to alternative lifestyles, he was able to finish high school and continue his new "hobby" in college. After college, he and "she" returned to start a family, but the strain of his "secret" was too much for his now ex-wife. Married a second time was not the answer, so M.C. has transferred the stress to the pen and keyboard. Writing erotic stories - some loosely based on his and "her" life as well as stories involving aspects of the LGBT community, a community and lifestyle he has come to privately embrace. M.C. Questgend is a pen name used to protect his privacy and anonymity. The intent was to write stories that entertain, inspire and motivate - which are as much sensual and heartwarming as they are sexual and explicit.

Big Daddy's Girls by Angel Belmont (sissy transsexual bisexual)

Big Daddy's Girls is a 4-book (so far) serialized story from Angel Belmont that just tickled my fancy with the first story, excited me with the second, and delighted me with the third and fourth. Angel builds such a wonderful community within Big Daddy's home that you long to be invited, and the adopted sisterhood that Darling finds there is just fabulous.

The story begins on a deliciously quirky note in Becoming His, where a young priest by the name of Frederick finds himself hearing an increasingly erotic (and troubling) confession. The young woman on the other side of the partition shocks him with her secrets, not the least of which is that she is wearing a diaper, before revealing just how much Big Daddy knows of Frederick's own sissy secrets. I am not sure I have ever enjoyed such an odd, unsettling opening to a story. Talk about capturing the reader's attention!

What is even more impressive is how much heart and soul is contained within all the kinky eroticism. We see Frederick struggle with what is a life-altering decision, with so many conflicting emotions that feel genuine. The mystery of it all is wonderful as well, especially with the contract that causes Frederick so much turmoil. It is a story that is full of anxiety, but one that is also full of hope - even with the shocking eroticism of what Frederick must do to prove his commitment.

Where the first book was really our introduction to Frederick, The House of Desires is where we begin to get to know Big Daddy, a wealthy man of erotic tastes who believes in helping his chosen girls realize their deepest, darkest, most depraved fantasies. It opens with Frederick's first formal meeting with Big Daddy, where he accepts the new name of Darling before watching as Rachel, the transsexual maid with the razor-sharp tongue, shows what their Big Daddy is capable of. It is a fantastic scene, intensely sexual, and yet emotionally exciting as well.

This is also where the story opens up to embrace more of Big Daddy's Girls, providing Darling with a taste of what she can expect of her new life. I fully admit, the whole ABDL fetish has never done anything for me, but after reading of Baby-Girl's free-spirited sexual glee . . . her tender nursing by Mommy, the house's resident Madam . . . being carried lovingly to have her diaper changed . . . and her bedtime routine of being pegged before being laid in her crib . . . well, I get it. Big Daddy's Girls is a story of acceptance, no matter how odd the fetish or the fantasy.

The third chapter, All the Way, is pivotal in so many ways. For one, it is where Darling first comes to accept that it might be okay to be a feminine sissy, with all the wants and desires that come with that. She struggles with the image she presents, especially surrounded by so many beautiful, sexually confident sisters, but takes her first step towards self-acceptance. Having witnessed two of her sisters getting sexual with the help, Darling decides to take the initiative with her French tutor - a delightfully amusing seduction scene that also serves to outline the boundaries of appropriate sexual behavior.

This chapter is also pivotal in that Darling meets with Doctor Poppy, the eccentric sort of mad scientist who is responsible for the almost miraculous transitions of Big Daddy's Girls. She makes so much of the story possible, transforming dreams into reality. After that, the pivotal confrontation with Mr. and Mrs. Kimble is deliberately shocking, another pivotal moment that tests Darling's acceptance of other people's fantasies and fetishes. Without saying too much, I marveled at the way Angel turned a dubcon scene of extreme cuckolding into another lesson in how Big Daddy loves and accepts all his girls.

Having been invited, introduced, and tested, Darling finds herself fully accepted into The Sisterhood of Big Daddy's Girls in the latest installment. This was, in a word, glorious! We get to see this newly blossoming sissy, still uncomfortable and uncertain of herself, being welcomed into the erotic embrace of her sisters - sissy, transsexual, and cisgender. The shower orgy scene is mind-blowing in its sexual intensity, with so many hands and mouths and other things intertwined, but it is all positive, body-affirming, and emotionally connected. Just wonderful.

After that, the second half of the story feels far more ordinary subdued, but that is what makes it so happy. Darling and Hope take Baby-Girl out for the afternoon, dress her in a teddy bear onesie, and sit and chat while she plays on a public playground. Hope is the youngest of the sisters, and in the early stages of her transition. Even as they are being so warmly welcomed by the world, especially by the cafe that offers Baby-Girl crayons and a paper place-mat without a second thought, they talk of the challenges of social acceptance for the transgender community. It is a lovely way to remind us that not everybody is as understanding as Big Daddy, and the sexual twist that closes out the chapter is perfect.

I absolutely adored the first four chapters of Big Daddy's Girls, and you can bet I will be all over the next installment. I am just in love with the entire concept. If there were more men like Big Daddy and more women like his Girls, the world would be a far better place. I know it is just a fantasy, but I would be lying if I said I was not dreaming of Baby-Girl someday slipping a contract into my hand.

Angel Belmont is the writer of erotic fiction books. Some of the themes you'll see include: Sissy, Feminization, Toys, Hormones, Gender Bending, Diapers, ABDL, Cuckolding, Massive Cocks, Pegging, BDSM, impregnation, Breastfeeding, Oral, Anal, Vaginal, Interracial, and many more filthy delights. Angel is not a lazy writer. The stories will have character development. There will be some dark elements. Knowing the characters will make their adventures that much hotter

Katherine’s Diary: The Story of a Transsexual by Katherine Cummings

I'm an avid reader of first-person accounts by transgender individuals. I find that there is something quite fascinating, compelling, and inspiring observing the struggles and eventual resolution of individuals as they grapple with the expression of their true selves. Katherine's Diary: The Story of a Transsexual is a marvelous and well-written example of such a book. This short review will not do justice to the quality of this work, an outstanding memoir, replete with wonderful photos taken over the course of the author's lifetime. Katherine Cummings is a talented writer, a wonderful story teller, a humorist, and, in her former occupation, an innovative creator of cutting-edge library techniques and procedures. In terms of the later, and parenthetically, Cummings relates that years ago she designed many library systems that are still utilized today.

As outlined in the vignettes Cummings relates, her transition to a female role was quite a series of adventures - many humorous while some others rather sad. In this updated and re-released version of a book that originally came out in 1990, the author has now arrived at her golden years and looks back somewhat nostalgically at past relationships and at those people who influenced her journey, many of whom have since died. Gender transitions generally are the coup de gras for marital couples, and the author's union was no exception. Sadly though, her gender struggle so intensely angered her ex-wife that she expressed her ire at Cummings by having their lengthy marriage that produced three daughters completely annulled.

The author, who through a circuitous journey came to reside in Australia, is a genuine transgender pioneer. Although she, in her modesty, might deny this fact, having transitioned at a time when doing so was not nearly as common as today. But, by being as involved in the burgeoning transgender movement as she was through her writings and activism, I would say she definitely was a driving force.  Katherine's Diary: The Story of a Transsexual is a very worthwhile read.

TG Caption - Boys and their Dolls (dollification genderwap futa)

TG Captions are one of my favorite forms of storytelling. There is no narrative fluff, no extraneous details, just the hook, the twist, and the climax.

This one is for a fan over at reddit, who is "very much into the human dollification" and who loved my Dollmaker captions from last summer. I immediately knew what I wanted to write about here, right down to the final details, it was just a matter of finding the right photo of a doll-like woman with somewhat androgynous sex appeal.

Do you have a fave theme? A request? Let me know in the comments below or pop me an email.
