A new rave review for my twisted little short, MANamorphosis, from Rainbow Reviews says, "Only Rick Reed could manage in just twenty pages to spin a tale that is original and jaw-dropping and eye-opening...I am a huge fan of Reed's writing and this is yet another story that surpassed all my expectations ~ not that I ever could have really known what was in store for me upon picking up this tale. I laughed out loud, I chuckled silently, I gasped at the unexpected turns, and I smiled at the message lying just beneath the surface. My only complaint is that it had to end, but it is the perfect size and shape for what it means to be, with just enough length and the right amount of girth to make for an exceptional org ... er, read. No really."
Read the review.
Purchase MANamorphosis for only $2.25. You can also read a short excerpt there as well (too hot for my blog).
And here's a summary:
I awoke one morning from uneasy dreams to find my penis had transformed itself into a vagina...
Thus begins the story of a very unusual day in the life of Rick, one utterly baffled gay man. After the shock wears off about his new, compelling, and completely different genitalia, this promiscuous, fun-loving gay man wonders how he can take advantage of his bizarre new gift.
Bagging a straight man is the first thing that comes to mind. Well, actually bagging whole battalions of straight men spring to mind.
There's only one problem: while he now has his very own love taco, he has none of the customary toppings to go with it. Enter Pete Thickwhistle, friend and drag artist extraordinaire. Pete quickly sets about making his friend's appearance go from butch man to convincing female as fast as you can say "Max Factor."
Rick, now Rickie, sets off on his quest for yards and yards of straight-man flesh. Little does he know that what awaits him is not his lust's desire, but his heart's. Rickie finds that when you go out looking just for sex, you may end up with something a lot more substantial...
