Other projects included the meta rock opera Peaches Does Herself, which chronicled her rise to fame, and the book What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches, which documented her between-album work.
She returned to the studio with longtime producer Vice Cooler as well as guests such as Kim Gordon , Feist , and Simonne Jones for 's Rub, a set reflecting the directions dance and hip-hop had taken in the six years since her last album. Listen to Peaches now. Listen to Peaches in full in the Spotify app Play on Spotify. I lolled in my chair slurping a sweet, Texas freestone—pure bliss.
When I opened my eyes, they returned to the newspaper. That three-word title had stunned me so that I had never read the article below it. I read it now. A reprieve. Time for me to wait till he tired of her, or vice versa. The weight of him descended like a load of that hard backyard clay onto my shoulders, and my reverie made sense. What I really, really wanted was to put him back on that moving truck.
I wanted him out of my life and off my mind.
I wanted to find my bliss. I went to my desk, deleted him from my email address book and my phone contacts, blocked him on Facebook. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, let me know you you like the story.

In Rotten Peaches, one woman makes peace with her history and moves forward while another woman slowly descends into Hell. I had great fun doing this self-interview! I am not always a noir person, but this noir was great!
Leonie is so unblushingly dreadful! The plot is wonderful, but characters make it work. I love the way Leonie and Bernice change during the novel, and I love their endings. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lisa de Nikolits has such a nice way with words and is quite the wicked storyteller! Kudos for weaving such a tangled narrative and keeping it flowing, right to the bitter end. Quite the page turner. I loved it! It would make a great film! Really liking it so far. I really liked it.
It was hard to put down. Although these were all very bad people on many levels, I found myself feeling sorry for them as well, or at least for Bernice and Leonie. Their actions were often deplorable, but they were also clearly very damaged people scarred by their upbringing. It would be interesting to see Leonie pop up again somewhere down the road in another story.

A trailer for Rotten Peaches! I really hope you'll check it out! Posts like this gladden a writer's heart! Seen on Instagram! Join the blog tour today! I hope you'll enjoy these candid behind-the-scenes vlogs! In Their Own Words: Twenty Successful Writers on the Craft and Business of Writing gives readers a direct line to the thoughts and experiences of some of the most successful writers on the scene today. From award-winning suspense and horror authors like Jonathan Maberry and Alexandra Sokoloff to mystery masters like J.
Jance and Neal Griffin, In Their Own Words shares insights and firsthand knowledge from writers who simply know how to get it done. The title derived from the Elton John song of the same name refers to outside beauty hiding the ugliness within.
Leonie, a chemist whose beauty cream promises more than it delivers, is having an affair with JayRay, a charismatic conman in pursuit of easy riches. He has his sights set on his half-sister Bernice, a self-help writer who is having an affair with political activist Dirk. That made this book a hard for me to read because throughout the entire book I started hating each of them more and more. I do have to commend the author because she created a group of characters that are all assholes and someone I would avoid in real life.
I was amazed at how well the author was able to make me hate characters right from the start. A really fun day! The characters are crass, broken, disgustingly selfish, and wholeheartedly messed up. How great is that? The story follows the two main characters, Leonie and Bernice, with their bad decisions and constant struggle to maintain their flimsy grasp on their so-called realities. They are as different as night and day, and yet they are similar in that they are both neurotic messes and hard-core survivors.
The plot is full of both surprises and predictable ramifications, and the way the author lays everything out makes predicting the ending nigh impossible. Be warned, the story is full of foul language and sexually explicit references and scenes that are not necessarily drawn out and in full detail but more like quick and dirty moments.
This story will make you shake your head in disbelief at how utterly screwed up these people are and then laugh at how both women crudely land on their feet and have the last word. You have to find out how far they will go to hide their sins even as they continue to commit them. You have to find out if they have even a shred of decency and remorse lurking under the surface.
Reading about people who continually self-destruct and then rise from the ashes is exhausting, but the ending is well worth it.
