    About “Remittance Girl

    • Remittance Girl

      Remittance Girl is a writer of erotic fiction NOT ROMANCE OR EROTIC ROMANCE Most of my work is short stories, but I do write some longer pieces serials, novellas, etc I live as an expat in a small Southeast Asian country, where I teach, write and grow orchids I live with a cat called Seven Although writing is not my main profession, it is the focus of my life I hope that shows in the quality of my work.As a writer, I feel very strongly that the erotica genre has suffered greatly over the years from a lack of quality, good editorship, and a dearth of publishers willing to put new material out there It seems to have been appropriated by two literary camps romantic fiction and pornography These days most erotic fiction is either a romance novel with the spicy bits left in or, on the other side of the spectrum, stroke fiction with the solitary and express purpose of providing guided masturbatory fantasies.This is sad, because I think erotic fiction, as a genre, should be neither and both those things, but it ought to be , as well I have no objection to representations of romantic entanglements in erotica, just as I have no objections to them in a sci fi novel Nor do I have any objections to a reader finding that a specific story arouses them to the point of wanting to masturbate That s also fine But there are perfectly good genres where either of those reader desires are fulfilled specifically.I believe that erotica, as a genre, should deal with the theme of erotic desire and, ideally, how desire informs, changes and manipulates the lives of the characters who are desirous If erotic fiction can be this, then I think it has the potential to be an important cultural product, and should be proudly included in the literary cannon.Some of you will have cleverly noticed that Remittance Girl is not the name I was born with I decided to use a pseudonym because it is in keeping with the tradition of the Victorian pornographers I could have chosen a name that sounded like a name, but where would be the fun it that This is my identity for my writing, and for my online persona I ve had it for many years now.The name itself is a reference to a remittance man describes a remittance man thus Remittance Man In the 19th century, the English usage of the word usually referred to money sent from England the opposite direction to today s usual usage of the term A remittance man was an exile living on money sent from home Within Victorian British culture, this often meant the black sheep of an upper or middle class family who was sent away from the UK to the Empire , and paid to stay away These men were generally of dissolute or drunken character, and may have been sent overseas after one or disgraces at home.If you wish to contact me, please email me at remittancegirl at gmail dot com

    • I will refrain from rating and reviewing this book. As I see it I can't do it because I think it'd get nasty and too personal. I have a sudden urge to vomit.The spoiler is rather shocking and self-explanatory. (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]I can't recommend this book but feel free to read it.

    • The Splinter by Remittance Girl is an amazingly tender and profound novella about desire, pain, the religious life, and ecstasy -- both sexual and divine. It’s beautifully written, and RG treats her characters so lovingly that I can’t let them go. I haven’t read RG’s other, more erotic work, but I sure plan to. Of her stories, this one caught my attention because its themes are of great interest to me (as in, why the heck does a nice churchy girl like me like to read and write about sex? [...]

    • well,that was a new level of crazy fucked upi liked it at first but then it got really looney.d i didn’t see the reason behind what simon did what he did!!!

    • I cried. There are so many stories out there which mangle their characters because of bad choices the writer makes. This is not one of them. This is a difficult subject which highlights the sexual ecstasy of two taboo topics. As usual, Remittance Girl explores, instead of exploits, the topic. Stripping away the "jiggada-jiggada" aspect of erotic writing, she brings the strangeness of the individual into focus with her clearly written prose.For those who love to read about pain or priests, this i [...]

    • I do so enjoy the work of this author. Delores is young, naive and fanatical in her devotion to "God" She portrays her devotion through pain. The Brother who is asked to help her, knows all that she is feeling and therein lies his own demon, he knows how mesmerising her "devotion" becomes. This author's work always leaves you thinking about the book when you have finished. I find that her writing is never mundane or formulamatic. The Splinter was a little different than this author's usual work [...]

    • Never have I given a Remittance Girl less than 4 stars, but for once I'm underwhelmed. It's true that the subject matter is one I tend to avoid both in life and in my reads: suffocating religion. However, this author's writing is usually glorious, and it was good in The Splinter too, so I wasn't too concerned. The characters and plotting did little for me this time though. I didn't enjoy the many POV switches, that made me hop from character to character in what was such a short story already. T [...]

    • I have to say that this is one of the most erotic books I've ever read. That being said, it is not because the book is stuffed to the brim with a bazillion sex scenes (there's only a couple scenes that would qualify), but because the interaction between the characters is so completely sensual and tense and desperate. It's a short at about 19,000 words, but I'm left feeling for the characters and saddened by what occurs when their shortcomings collide, head on. Sniffle. The best Remittance Girl I [...]

    • Remittancr Girl writes exceptionally well, but her resistance to writing Romance apparently makes it hard for her to wrap up her stories originally. This is the third of her novellas that I read, and all of them ended the same way! That's just as repitive as slapping a HEA on the story. I really would have preferred an open ending to this. Very disappointing, as this could have easily been a 5 star read.

    • 4.5 Questioning my Faith starsSeriously messed up short story about a young girl struggling with how much faith is needed to see or feel God.I say

    • Short and sweet. If you like your 'sweet' with a bitter tang.Remittance Girl has a peculiar gift for seeing into decidedly flawed characters and making them shine. It's like seeing the punk kid with the spiky hair, tattoos and a thousand piercings, on his way to do volunteer work in the community. Decidedly foreign yet, for all his strangeness, sympathetically human too.Without wishing to spoil the story, it's about a devout young lady whose a little too devout. Believing she is bound for the nu [...]

    • I have mixed feelings, and overall I'm not sure how I feel about the book. It makes some interesting remarks about the Catholic Church that mirror my own vision of the Church, and to a certain degree it portrays self-flagellation and some aspects of faith as fetishes. It's almost as if it's trying to bring together the spiritual with the physical, and show us that these two can't be separated and that instead, they feed off each other. Or maybe I'm just reading too much into it and I'm doing it [...]

    • This was the third of Remittance Girl's novellas which I have read.It is very well written and thought provoking, however I didn't like it as much as her other two. That is not to sat when compared to other erotica it isn't brilliant!The story addresses addiction, punishment and sub-space without being a BDSM novel. I was a little surprised by the ending as well, although I never expect RG to follow an easy path.I would and have recommended this book, I just didn't love it as much as Gaijin and [...]

    • 4.5/5 - review to come. :) "Please, Simon. I can't do it by myself. I've tried, but I get tired and dizzy. You have to help me, Simon. I want to see the Virgin. I want to feel her grace pouring down on me, cleansing me of sin, and taking me into the divine light." She reached her arm over him, pulling herself up, until her face was next to his. "Please, Simon. I feel so alone. I need to be with Her." (view spoiler)[He does. (hide spoiler)]
