Louise MacGregor's New Adult romance, Right Guy, Wrong Time, is now available as an ebook! Part romantic comedy, part social commentary, part women's empowerment, this novel manages to be a light, entertaining read while also tackling some tough subjects.
Edie, a record label talent scout, experiences date rape as well as sexual harassment at work. Handling her recovery and these challenges is further complicated when she meets an intriguing new love interest. This offbeat feminist romantic comedy moves beyond “girl meets guy,” dealing with sexual dysfunction, the ubiquity of rape culture, and what recovery looks like in a world filled with reminders of your assault.
What reviewers are saying:
"...skillfully portrays the reality of assault from a woman’s perspective. [S]ome readers...may find solace in seeing this topic addressed in a romance novel."-- Library Journal
"...the best portrayal of the aftermath of a rape that I have ever read in a novel."
--Steff Pasciuti, Reader Fox Blog

Frayed Edge Press is pleased to announce the publication of Loose in the Bright Fantastic, a new novel by E.B. Moore. Gray-haired Maggie has fled the hospital wearing only her late husband’s ill-fitting wingtips and an ancient mink over her hospital johnny--going on a wild adventure through Boston as her family desperately searches for her.
Early readers have praised the compassion and sensitivity of Loose in the Bright Fantastic, as well as its humor and the centering of an older protagonist:
"[Maggie's] adventure through Boston is hilarious, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful. A fine, satisfying read!" -Juliette Fay, author of Catch Us When We Fall
"...a compassionate and, at times, laugh out loud hilarious tale of family, friendship, and a search for meaning." -Monica R., NetGalley
“...upends the expected story of a failing mind, gifting us with Maggie, a woman who never gives up her potent core of vibrancy and finds one more magnificent adventure.” Randy Susan Meyers, author of Waisted
