One for the Ladies

By Jessica E. Subject
While Unknown Futures is not the first story I wrote an F/F love scene in, it is my first story where the two women end up together in the end.
When I decided to write Unknown Futures, it was originally supposed to be a sequel to Celestial Seduction, carrying on Carrie and Frey’s story. But it didn’t work. I couldn’t think of a plot that would work. Instead I made them minor characters in a new 1Night Stand story. I’d already written two, and wanted to try something different. The line has everything imaginable in terms of plots, but there weren’t any F/F romances at the time. I decided to challenge myself and have my next 1Night Stand story introduce two females looking for love. Challenge being the key word.
But then I thought to myself, I don’t have a penis. If there’s one thing I know, it’s my body. I know what I like, where I like to be touched, and what parts of love-making bring me the most pleasure. I don’t know what sensations men feel during sex, but I do for women. I don’t have to worry about the unknown penis, the unfamiliar male point of view. I can do this!
I have written more F/F stories since Unknown Futures and have been
involved in some events relating to Lesbian Fiction. Every January, KT Grant, a fellow Decadent author,  hosts the Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event. Plus, Anastasia Vitsky, another Decadent author, hosts Love Spanks in February, where participating authors write a short F/F romance (which may or may not involve spanking) for readers to check out for FREE. There are all kinds of giveaways, too. So, if you have not ready any F/F stories, or have read only one that just didn’t float your boat, I hope you will check out these events the showcase a wide range of fiction with two heroines. You may find something you DO like.

Oh, and if you want to try out Unknown Futures, it’s only 99¢ for the month of January. Here’s an excerpt...

“Miss Jewel Barnaby?”
Her eyes darted toward the tall, austere man in surprise, nervous tension knotting her shoulders. She almost didn’t respond. No one had called her Jewel since she’d left the hospital two years ago. Instead they called her ugly, freak, or monster. The doctors had done all they could, but despite the several surgeries and multiple, painful skin grafts, everyone in Prescott, Ontario would always know her as the girl who was splashed in the face with acid on the biggest night of her teenage life.
They’d been in his garage, grabbing blankets for the after-prom party. When he’d tried to get fresh with her, she’d had to tell him, a jock through and through, she wouldn’t sleep with him, that she’d preferred women. But he didn’t take no for an answer. Pinned against his truck, her heart racing in panic, she kneed him in the groin. Doubled over, he’d grabbed sulfuric acid from a shelf behind him and splashed it in her face. Everything after that moment became a blur until she woke up in a hospital, groggy with painkillers, a tube stuck down her throat. She couldn’t see a thing with the bandages covering her eyes, but felt and heard her mother by her side.
From then on, some of her neighbors looked at her with disgust, sympathy, or fear. Others glanced away when she passed, as if she didn’t exist, including her old friends.
The chauffeur simply smiled at her as he reached for her two oversized suitcases. His professional, impassive demeanor calmed some of the butterflies dancing in her stomach.
Standing on the curb, she stared down the road, sure neighbors spied out their windows, wondering why a limo would be picking her up. I need a break from this place. As she slid over the leather seat of the Ford Excursion limousine, her stomach tightened. Madame Evangeline’s text had been brief. Pack for two weeks. The limo will meet you in front of your building in an hour. She’d had no time to do anything but change and throw clothes in a suitcase.
Until now. Had applying to 1Night Stand really been a good idea? She could end up with her date running away, screaming. And why had Madame Evangeline told her to pack for two weeks when her date was only supposed to last one night?
