Iteration Eleven — a short story

My latest story, Iteration Eleven, has just been published by HyphenPunk, a magazine that examines the human condition through a postmodern lens.

The stories they publish really sit with me, and I’m absolutely stoked to have my work included in their collection.

Iteration Eleven is a quiet cyberpunk horror flashfic. I’ll estimate it’s about a 5-minute read.

It Starts with a Kiss — re-release coming soon

My sci-fi office romance novella, It Starts with a Kiss, will be re-releasing later this year.

Yep, it has taken me this long to get my act together—about seven months from when the book’s original publisher announced they’d be shutting shop. But who’s counting? 😅

No firm dates yet, but it’ll likely be around October/November time. In the meantime, add yourself to my mailing list to stay updated on this book.

About Henry — out now

A white man kisses the cheek of an Asian woman on the cover of About Henry by JL Peridot

About Henry: A Novella (also known as About Henry) is now available on Amazon. Here’s the lowdown:

Let me tell you about Henry. I could get fired for this, but what the hell.

Julie was perfectly fine, admiring the rich American Henry Aston from a distance. That is, until he asked her out to dinner. But there’s just one problem: CapriLuxe Perth has a strict policy against employees fraternising with the guests.

Sorry, two problems: Henry Aston’s married.

ABOUT HENRY: A NOVELLA presents JL Peridot’s erotic short story, originally published in the notorious CapriLuxe Chronicles anthology, and featured on The Good Bits website and podcast.

It also includes the follow-up story, ABOUT HER, where we discover what happened when the Astons got back from their road trip; what happened after a chance meeting in a cocktail bar on the other side of town; and what happened when Henry finally introduced Julie to his wife.

For anyone saving pennies this month, you can still find the ARC on StoryOrigin until the end of July 🤗

Henry: I have a surprise for you, Julie. / Julie: I want it. / Henry: Are you sure? Yo udon't even know what it is. / Julie: Mm, well, if you're offering, I'll take it.

RSS is not dead, it’s just the LI in a shapeshifter paranormal romance

Remember when RSS/Atom feeds were all the rage and you didn’t have to visit noisy social networks to get updates on your favourite blogs? Instead, you went to your noisy feed reader (eg. Google Reader, Feedburner, Feedly, etc.) and scrolled through hundreds of titles and text previews. Ah, good times.

Well, I don’t want to say those days are gone. They’re not. But they have had to adapt to the rise of social media superpower platforms. I do have an RSS feed on this blog. You can find it at /feed. But I have blog feed on Twitter now too: @jlperidotblog 😄

Not all of my blog posts make it to my main account, so chuck us a follow if you’d like to see the full set of updates* in your timeline.

(* I am not perfect and may sometimes forget to schedule stuff properly)

Admittedly, this isn’t very newsworthy. It’s just a way to test out the automated posting system behind the scenes. Thank you for reading 👋
