“Stop making excuses for why you can’t let yourself have this. It’s not conventional but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real. What’s more important? Loving the man that loves you, or trying to achieve this bullshit idea you have of what a perfect relationship is supposed to be?”
Stacey Wallace Benefiel, Crossing

“Hey, who are you calling easy?" I say, clearing my throat. "I was just thinking how I haven't had sex in over a year. Is that the mark of a loose woman?"

He looks at me, eyes wide. "God, that is a long time."

"Yep, it is." I nod. "A personal record. Before that my longest dry spell was seven months. Definitely more tolerable, although I don't recommend it."

He whistles. "I'm at six now, and I may have watched all the porn on the entire Internet. My condolences to your vagina."

"My vagina thanks you."

Yeah, that's a thing to say. My vagina wishes she could thank him.

He smiles at me sweetly. "Did it like the wreath I sent?”

“Dude, could you please get off my girlfriend before I beat the crap out of you ? I don't want to injure her.”

Thank you for the friendship. I saw that you joined the group I set up about books and writers that don't have a type. Thanks for the support. Do you have any book suggestions for me? I noticed you like romance and YA. I do too. I wrote the book Ladies of Market Street if you want to give it a try. I would love your opinion.

Thanks again,
Em

Yay! I'm glad you found it. In true SWB style, I thought that putting a pen name on the stuff that was meant for adults would keep 10-year-olds from reading it, except it also keeps everyone else from being able to find it. At some point I'm going to have change the name on that. :)

I see that you have a nook. Go with the Smashwords link in the other comment-the epub file will work on that.

Hi! You can find Glimpse on Amazon,Smashwords, and on Goodreads as an e-book. If you were looking for it on Barnes and Noble it's not up yet. It is taking forever!!

Here are the links to Amazon and Smashwords. I've never bought an e-book from Goodreads and I think my pages look different than what the person buying the book sees, so I don't know how to tell you how to do that. :)

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Glimpse-Zellie-...

Thanks!
