This is the 6th episode of Geek Actually, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Cecilia Tan.
Meet your new best girlfriends in this sexy, genre-busting serial that's all about feminism, friendship, and fandom.
Every lady geek has heard about other lady geeks being harassed, but Taneesha never thought it would happen to her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when the coworker she beat at Warcraft makes his beef with her public online. Michelle finds some like-minded people at a kinky party . . . but realizes that she’s still figuring out what turns her on and what definitely turns her off.
Join this tight-knit group of lady geeks as they navigate the ups and downs of their personal and professional lives. Michelle is a hard-nosed fantasy and sci-fi editor used to things going her way. Taneesha is a talented video game programmer used to being the odd (wo)man out. Aditi is a fantasy writer on the verge of her big break. Christina is a rebel on the sidelines of Hollywood. And Elli is a fan-of anything and everything that keeps her from "proper adulting." They might live far apart, but through the power of the internet and a shared love of all things geek, they are ready to face the world together.

Melissa Blue's writing career started on a typewriter one month after her son was born. This would have been an idyllic situation for a writer if it had been 1985, not 2004. She penned that first contemporary romance, upgraded to a computer and hasn't looked back since. Her published works include the Under The Kilt and Dirty Sexy Geeks series, among many others. Outside of writing, Blue works as a mail clerk for the federal government, has a paralegal certificate (that she has more use for as a dust pan) and is a mother of two rambunctious children. She lives in California where the wine is good and, despite popular belief, is not always sunny. TheMelissaBlue.com
Cathy Yardley needs to get out more. When not writing, she's usually lurking on social media, playing Fallout 4, or watching D-list movies and adding to her unnatural mental store of character-actor trivia. She's a fangirl of Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Lord of the Rings, and too many others to name. She lives with her family in Seattle. They are considering performing an intervention for her addiction to pop culture. CathyYardley.com
