A February Femmes Fatales? Moi? You bet your--

I have no words to express how honored I am to be included among the February Femmes Fatales. So I'll let the Devil do it for me: The Devil Wants A Word

Very seriously, I want to thank Lily Childs not just for hosting the weekly Friday Prediction, which attracts the best dark writers around, but for being such an incredibly warm and welcoming woman. I remember my first time skinny-dipping in the waters of the Prediction, and it has been, hands down, the best prompt community I've come across, and this is in no small part due to Lily herself.

I'm truly honored to be included amongst the February Femmes Fatales. Thank you everyone for reading.

So. The Devil, eh? I actually wrote this last summer, and then had no idea who would possibly publish such a thing. When Lily sent the invite, I jumped at the chance to polish this up and make it the best it could be. And yes, it was written before my Three Word Wednesday piece, Lucky, and obviously long before my current, on-going serial that follows the travails of poor, harassed Death. Which has no title. (title suggestions gladly accepted!)

There's a thread here I should be pulling, I think. Maybe a whole sweater needs to be unraveled! And then I will be naked before you. But don't worry. I've got a nice smile and I bring decent writing. ;-)

Enjoy your weekend! Thanks again for visiting my blog. Worshipping most welcome.


  1. Gods, you daft woman, worshipping would be a complete understatement!

    Egoistic that I am, I now feel I should never have to read anything of poorer quality than "The Devil Wants A Word" -- why shouldn´t I deserve the best?!

    Love you!

  2. An excellent piece! Loved it and yes, Lily's site is terrific isn't it? A very supportive community.

    You're now being followed, by the way, by this fellow femme!


  3. Just read The Devidl Wants A Word. Pure awseomeness, Rebecca! Very well done!

    I'm now off to catch up on your other work about Death. Do you actually know him or the Devil, as you write extremely well about them. :-)

    Happy Sunday!

  4. Thank you so much, guys! I appreciate your support so much. :-)

    David, I don't know him, but it turns out that asuqi might...

  5. Wow That's so awesome!! Ms. Femme Fatal!!! I love it!

    Your new banner looks yummy. Ilove the pink.

  6. Thank you so much for agreeing to contribute to FFF Rebecca (and Asuqi and Susan!) It is my absolute pleasure to showcase your work - it blows my mind.

    Thanks too for your lovely words - I'm all a-blush.
