What has Beth’s girlfriend ordered in the plainest, squarest, most non-descript parcel? It certainly isn’t books. No-one shuffles that frantically to hide books when you come in unexpectedly.
And what would any right-minded person do when they opened the kitchen drawer to check what had been hidden? But right-minded isn’t a term that’s often applied to Beth.
The Dildo in the Kitchen Drawer is a short story of paranoia, slippery fingers and recalcitrant dogs.
Where to buy:
I have a short story in Freya Publications’ SunKissed anthology. It’s also a great chance to read work from best-selling indie authors Rosen Trevithick, Toni James and Kiki Archer. It’s a fantastically varied collection with funny, sexy chick-lit stories, historic romances and literary stories.
It’s had some brilliant reviews, including one at When Sally Met Sally.
I was incredibly pleased when I read this excerpt from it:
In “I Also Met You In Summer” Clare Ashton demonstrates remarkable mastery of her craft, in a dark and gripping tale about betrayal and revenge. This is a superbly written portrait of a woman facing up to the reality of a cheating partner. A painful yet uplifting story by a supremely talented writer, this is a touching, passion-filled narrative about finding and losing love (although not necessarily in that order).
