Bet I Can Feminize My Brother! by Claire Bear & Courtney Captisa

What could be more dangerous than four teenage girls with wild ideas and far too much time on their hands? Not much, especially when one of them has something to prove, fate dangles the bait of a county fair womanless pageant before them, and there’s three months of car payments on the line when they Bet I Can Feminize My Brother! Their poor, unwitting – and unwilling – brothers have no idea what they’re in for.

For one brother, it begins with a little blackmail, fueled by photos of a sleepy feminization. For another, it begins with a little ego stroking and outright bribery. For one lucky brother, it’s pretty much a dream come true, no blackmail or coercion required, while for the last . . . well, feminization involves a lot of brute force and big sister bullying. The point being, no matter what your tastes in feminization schemes or sissy boy mindsets, there’s bound be one brother’s story in which you can lose yourself.

Much to my delight, the pageant itself takes up nearly half the story, giving us plenty of time to enjoy the sissies on display. There are some interesting thoughts regarding gender expressed amidst all the laughs and embarrassment, and even if the pageant itself doesn’t end quite as it should (these things are always rigged), there’s a cute little opening left by Claire Bear & Courtney Captisa for a sequel.

All-in-all, a fun, clean, innocent little tale that's full of feminine frills, and sure to please the most curious of brothers or sisters.

Freebie Fiction Friday - Putting the TG in TGIF!

Well, if it's Friday, then that must been it's time for Freebie Fiction Friday . . . time to put the 'TG' in TGIF (and the 'FD' in Friday)!

Every Friday I take the initiative to search through thew newly free titles on Amazon, and to identify those that might be of interest to trans* readers, fans, and lovers. Even if you don't have a Kindle, you can still download the titles through one of Amazon's free reading applications, and covert it (if need be) with Calibre. I can tell you I do most of my reading on my iPad, using Kindle for iPad, and it works beautifully.

Please do be sure to check the price before downloading anything, though, as most freebies are limited time offers, and some are specific to certain regions.

After a few lighter weeks, we have a very nice selection, including some new favorite authors!

The Warm Pink Jelly Express Train by Rod Fleming

The Warm Pink Jelly Express Train by Rod Fleming is a wonderful and incredibly romantic novel with an ingenious premise, peopled with exceptionally real characters.

It is the story of a middle age man, grieving his past marriage, and feeling guilty about his indiscretions, who finds love in a totally unexpected place - and who has to deal with his deeply ingrained preconceptions about the binary gendered system.

At first glance, while this story appears to be a tale of obsession, potentially leading to an almost preordained conclusion of calamity, it turns out to be much bigger and much more different than that. In a somewhat parallel process, just as our heroine Rafy turns out to be not what she seems, neither does our hero, Brian, a man of so much depth and a complete willingness and plan to sacrifice everything for his love.

I suspect the controversy over the Kindle Unlimited compensation changes is largely to blame for the smaller selection these past weeks, but we're looking good today:
