Call Me A Slut

I was a late bloomer, and I didn’t have a serious boyfriend until my senior year of high school. Before that age, my parents involved me in their bitter divorce battle. Love seemed ugly and sex seemed dangerous, a notion only fueled by the media in that time period.  I was a “good” girl. I even imagined waiting for sex until marriage (yeah, that didn’t happen).

Well, folks, it is many years later, and I wish I had been different. I wish I’d been… a slut. The word itself is so ugly, right? So judgmental? It’s a word meant to keep young girls virginal. It’s a word for control.

Screw control. If I could go back to that younger me, I would tell myself to have some more fun, to embrace my sexuality, and to refuse those labels.

I’m happy to hear songs like Mary Lambert’s Secrets. When my little daughters sing it, I feel hopeful that negative body images and sexual bullying might lesson in their lifetime.

However, the news recently makes me worry in the opposite way. As I see choices limited for women and gay rights threatened, I worry. When I see television shows still praising the “good” girl and condemning the “bad” girl, I worry. When I see young boys stereotyped too, I worry for my son.  As long as sex is consensual, why do we not celebrate it?

When I was younger, I would never consider casual sex. I had a rocking hard body (oh, to be 16 again) and thought I was unattractive. I had guys asking me out, and I would turn them down.  Then I actually had sex—- consensual, fun,  safe, wonderful sex—-and guess what?  I fucking loved it.

I would like to think if I had a time machine I’d go back and have even more of it.

When I see people so self-righteous and uptight, I feel sorry for them. The world is a big and beautiful place, and they’ve made it narrow and small. Let’s face it —- sex can’t be fabulous if your outlook is negative.

So call me a slut, a whore, or immoral. The privilege of getting older is I care less what others think of me.

And the sex just keeps getting better….

Celebrating My Cover Art

HolidayHoax[The]FS

Hello out there,

I’m celebrating my beautiful cover art for The Holiday Hoax. Paul Richmond did a great job capturing the sweetness of the book, didn’t he? The novella is new adult and first person—both things I have never done before—and it celebrates Christmas and Hanukkah.  If you are looking for a tender coming of age holiday tale, I hope you’ll give this one a try!

I’m feeling grateful for having two books on the coming soon page. This one and The Last Guy Breathing. I plan to have a lot of giveaways for my readers over the next weeks (both here and on other blog sites).

A reader will win a copy of The Holiday Hoax today. All you have to do is comment on this blog about a holiday tradition in your family, and I will select a random winner by midnight. Good luck!

The Secrets of Jesse & Noah

Title: The Secrets of Jesse & Noah  

Blurb:

Jesse

He thinks he knows me, the real me.

The person hidden beneath the skin.

But he’s wrong.

I’ve kept secrets and told lies, all so I can protect him.

He’s my best friend, my protector, my everything.

I can’t tell him my darkest secrets, they would ruin him like they’re ruining me.

My secrets are killing me, slowly, painfully.

But they’re my secrets to keep. My secrets to hide.

He says he wants to know the truth.

But the truth would destroy us both.

Noah

I know his secrets, most of them anyway.

But there are things he doesn’t want me to know.

Secrets he keeps from me.

He doesn’t think I can handle the truth. But he’s wrong, I can do anything for him.

We’ve been best friends since the day we met.

And I’ve loved him every day since.

He’s told me things, things about himself no one else knows.

But he doesn’t fully trust me.

I want him to trust me.

I could handle all of his pain, if he’d just let me.

Trisha’s Bio

Trisha Harrington is an Irish girl with a love of all things books and music. She also loves the many Disney characters, Winnie the Pooh especially, although she couldn’t really pick her favorite character. She would like to see Winnie the Pooh living very happily in the Hundred Acre Wood with Eeyore, who wouldn’t be depressed anymore.

Trisha discovered m/m romance at the tender age of fifteen. While her stories tend to be dark and she puts her characters through a lot, she also believes in a HEA for her boys.

She usually creates a playlist and listens to music while she writes, ranging throughout the musical spectrum, although she prefers Rock, Indie Folk, and Pop. She finds it helps her set a mood for whatever she’s working on.

She’s a very chatty person and loves talking to people. Feel free to contact her on Twitter, Facebook, or Goodreads.
