Sneak Peek: Carrolwood

Be my patron! | Somewhere Without Horizons

What in the world is going on? I am offering with this latest post a little sneak peek at Carrolwood, the novel I am currently releasing installment style on my Patreon. My patrons get exclusive early access to all my writings, so why not join today? Without further ado, here is a little piece of my over 50,000 word, slow-change, gender swap novel:

Carrolwood Sample

Carl opened his mouth and said, “It’s just math.” But instead of filing the room with his manly bass, the words came out in the most lovely, musical soprano voice. In fact, he sounded exactly like Sunni, who was, of course, the best singer among all the girls at Carrolwood and had played the lead in every musical.

The class, failing to note Carl’s eyes go wide with the shock of betrayal as his hand shot to his throat, laughed. They thought he was making fun of Sunni and were delighted that he sounded JUST LIKE HER. 

“Not appropriate,” Sharp said, wagging her finger.

“I didn’t…” Carl started to object, but immediately stopped speaking as once more he heard that sweet and alluring feminine voice come from his throat.

The bell rang. A shocked and disturbed Carl gathered his books, quickly assuming his usual mask of confidence, eager to cover up his discomfort. He meant to find a private place to test his voice, maybe take a throat lozenge. His mind ran through all the known throat ailments, but he could remember none that would cause someone’s voice to— change. His plans, however, came to an abrupt end when Sunni planted herself in front of him, her hands on her hips, her eyes burning with fury as she stared up into his face. “It’s sexist to make fun of the way girls talk!” She said.

Carl focused. Carl concentrated. He placed- or tried to place— his voice deep in his chest, but when he spoke? “I’m not making…” Once more, that lovely soprano trilled from his lips. “I’m not making fun of how you talk!” He forced himself to say, appalled at how much he sounded like a snotty female.

Sunni put her hands on his chest and shoved him. “Jerk!” She said, spinning, ponytail flying as she stormed off.

Walking to Inspiration!

Holmdel Park, New Jersey

Today, I’m gonna share on where I get my ideas. I’ve written hundreds of gender swap short stories, novels, novellas and now scripts over the years. While they share a common element– someone gets gender swapped– they also are all different and unique in their own ways. Mostly, that does not result from a kind of logical process, but from an imaginative experience.

One of the greatest idea generating activities in my life involves walking. Aside from getting story ideas, I just like to walk. It’s healthy, and for me it’s a form of meditation. When I walk regularly, I just feel better physically, mentally and spiritually.

And, I get ideas. In the case of my current novel, Carrolwood, for example, the voice of the narrator came to me as I walked around my neighborhood after dinner one sweaty summer night. I sort of met this character, and I thought the voice was funny, and I began to think about what kind of story I could tell with that voice. The characters and setting all then just kind of emerged from my subconscious.

Another time I was walking around the beach down at Asbury Park, NJ, where the evil, 19th century clown Tillie still serves as town mascot, and I just started to think about what if Tillie were an evil spirit haunting the town? As I walked around, I took pictures of different locations, and the story ended up being built around that walk.

In addition to getting ideas for stories, I sometimes walk to inspiration while in the middle of a story. Sometimes when I am writing I get in a jam and can’t figure out what the character would or should do, I take a long walk, and the answer a lot of times just comes to me. Sometimes I see the scene in my head, and at those times I am very much inclined to believe in the idea of a muse that is feeding me ideas. It really does feel to me sometimes like I am seeing the story happen and just writing it down rather than “coming up with it.”

There are other ways ideas come to me. Sometimes I create a cover and then write a story to match. I have been inspired sometimes by other authors. For example, I once decided to write a TG story in the style of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Likewise, Forever Mine started out as “forced femme version of YOU (the book and Netflix series). There must be others I can’t think of right now– Oh, yeah– It Girl! What? Just started out as “TG Anime.”

But, I would say, without walking, I think I would write a lot less. There’s just something about walking along a shady, tree-lined path that allows my mind to open itself up and accept the gifts of inspiration!

Gender Fluid Film New to Amazon

The 7 Best Korean Movies on Netflix to Level Up Your Korean ...
In foreground, Woo-jin is one of his female shapes.

Every morning when Woo-Jin wakes up, he finds he has transformed into a completely different person– he may wake up as any gender, age or ethnicity. When the film The Beauty Inside begins, we find him at a place in his life where he has fallen into a routine, working for himself, living largely in isolation and just making the best of his situation.

Of course, that would not be much of a movie, so he soon falls in love with the beautiful Yi-soo, and begins to pursue her though she, at first, has no idea the various people who come into her store are all the same admirer. Finally, he asks her out to dinner, and as the two fall in love he is forced to risk telling her the truth about who he is and how he changes all the time into new people.

Without going any more into the plot, let me say this is a first rate Korean Romance. It’s billed as a rom-com, but it really lives much more in the world of drama, with beautiful cinematography, poetic scenes and heart-wrenching emotions as the two struggle to make their impossible relationship work.

Ueno Juri Chooses 'Beauty Inside' As Her First Korean Movie
Another of Woo-Jin’s female incarnations

The main character spends a fair amount of time as a female, and some of the most poignant and heart felt scenes occur when he is female and opening up to Yi-soo. For fans of TG elements, there are a few sweet moments: getting hit on by his male friend, shopping for his first bra and being so nervous and self-conscious he ends up running from the store, having a “mother daughter” tea with his Mom. One little detail I enjoyed was that as a female, he is often shorter than his girlfriend, and it seems like he is the femme in their relationship at some times.

It’s a good watch. Here’s a link:

The Beauty Inside

Curse Me Beautiful (Spoilers)

Curse Me Beautiful: A Paranormal Academy Bully Romance by [Marie Bradford]

Matt Hallows reigns over the all boys Drazin School of Wizardry. The biggest, strongest most athletic kid at the school, he lords it over the other boys, demanding their respect with the force of his will and, when necessary, his fists.

That changes within the first few pages of Marie Bradford’s Curse Me Beautiful, when Hallows arch-rival douses him with a potion that soon changes him into a five foot tall female with generous curves and serious, teen female hormonal issues. Falling squarely in the enemies to lovers genre, the book follows Matt as he gets in touch with his feminine side as, to his horror, he finds himself getting the hots for the very boy who stole his manhood in the first place.

The heart of this novel is the relationship between Matt and Alistair, which begins as pure hatred and evolves into something much more. Bradford is a skilled writer who has clearly studied the genre. The rising tension of the couple’s physical relationship is matched by the merging closeness of their emotional connection. There are twists and turns, pullings backs, and self-discoveries. Hallows, initially horrified at being female, comes to find more and more things he enjoys about his new life and body.

I’ll leave it at that in terms of the plot. Let me finish by saying I have read a lot of gender bender fiction, and this stands as one of the best I have read. You do have to allow the author a few leaps in logic in terms of the plot, but this is a journey worth taking.

The Beauty: Gender Bender Fiction (spoilers).

The Beauty by [Aliya Whiteley]

Aliyah Whiteley’s The Beauty merges Invasion of the Mushroom People, literary fiction flourishes and Old-school Fictionmania for a gender bender experience best described as different. Based in a post-apocalyptic world in which all women have been wiped out my a mysterious plague, when the book starts off we are introduced to a small village composed entirely of men living in a world that has regressed technologically to a more primitive, hunter-gatherer state.

Since it is literary fiction, there must be some shimmering shrine to “the power of narrative” and so these men spend their nights gathered around a campfire as their village story teller regales them with what have become their tribal legends. Outside the town lie the graves of the last women from their group.

Enter the mushroom women. Mysteriously, mushroom creatures begin to emerge from the graves of the vanished women. They can’t speak, but they have female shapes and a kind of psychic empathy. Soon, the men began to couple with the mysterious creatures, who also take over all the manual labor in the village. The men grow weak, their arms smaller, and soon enough one of them discovers that he is pregnant.

This creates some anxiety among the men, and the story flows from there. The book certainly explores the idea of gender, and it is a different approach, the whole thing written in that literary mode meant to suggest the relating of an ancient myth. Check it out.

Trapped Inside? TWO new books!

First of all, I hope everyone out there is safe. It’s a scary time. Wash your hands!

Now, if you are locked down and looking for something fun, I have two very different new ebooks out for your reading pleasure. Forever Mine is a forced femme story inspired by the book and TV series YOU in which a first person narrator talks us through as she targets and then feminizes a man– of course, it’s all for his own good! I would describe this one as dark.

On the brighter but still kind of dark side is 1950s Sitcom Season Two. This one picks up where Season One left off, with our feminized hero still trapped as a woman and living in a 1950s sitcom. The story is written in the manner of The Honeymooners or I Love Lucy, and it loaded with 50s fashion, music and lingo. Links below:

New TG Book: 1950s Sitcom!

Howdy, buckaroos! I have just put out my latest TG ebook, 1950s Sitcom. The premise of this book is that two guys get stuck in a 1950s sitcom in the manner of I Love Lucy or The Honeymooners. One of the guys, of course, finds himself transforming into a sitcom 1950s housewife, while the other settles into a comfortably boozy life as an entitled husband.

The story is broken up into three episodes, and it is very funny, if I do say so myself, while also having an overall Twilight Zone-esque tone of quiet horror. The stories were commissioned by a client who prefers to remain nameless, but I do want to thank Anonymous 2 for this great idea. I hope you enjoy!

If you love slow changes…

I predict you will love The Venus Lily, a premium illustrated story now available on tgcomics.com. The Venus Lily follows the story of Matt Baxter, a hard-boiled private investigator in the mold of Dash Hammet’s Sam Spade. The story stands out for several reasons:

  1. Matt Baxter’s character is thoroughly developed before the change. I like this because it makes his journey more interesting and believable. We get to know him as a man, so his gradual change into a woman has more resonance.
  2. The change is, as the title of this entry suggests, slow. The writer is very patient and Matt’s body changes gradually, leaving him in denial as to what is happening for quite some time.
  3. Matt is skillfully maneuvered into some very feminine roles– no spoilers– that compel him to perform as his new sex. It’s interesting to watch him deal with being a woman in a man’s world.

In addition to the excellent story telling, the story features fantastic illustrations in a jagged, atmospheric style that perfectly compliments to mood and atmosphere of the text. The Venus Lily is one of the top TG publications of the year, and invites multiple readings. I would say that either the story or the illustrations are worth the price, and together they are a bargain! Check it out!
