Fetish Friday #8

Click the Show/hide button to see the image. It is hidden because, well, I don't want people to come to this blog and then be assaulted by porn. There might be (other) people around!

I realized that I have a lot of muscly-girl pictures, drawn or real life. They make me all kinds of excited. I know that isn't everyone's tingly-exciting cup of tea, though, so I'll do my best to space those indulgences out with some more explicitness. Because you like that, and so do I, honestly. I just also like the muscles!

Again, this week, I unfortunately can't give you  a source. Some talented 3D person! If you should know who it is, do let me know and I'll edit it in here. :)

Side Note: Last Sunday, my first new material of the new year came out. It's a fantasy erotica series that has a bunch of delicious, hard sex, and also some magic and plot and emotions and junk. You can check it out here: Spiritbound

Freebie! Princess Sophie

For those of you that might just want the free smut, I'm going to spare you the usually enormous preamble and just give you the URL and code. Keep in mind, though, that you'll need an account with Smashwords. They're not sinister at all, and you can even pick the filetype you want according to preference. You click to buy the title, and then input the code. Anyway:

Link: Princess Sophie
Code: BZ52W

This freebie is available until February the 8th, the date on which Dark Lust 2 will launch. Hopefully it'll tide you over until then. Also, it has just been too long since I've done a freebie in general, so hopefully this'll go some way towards making up for that.

If you should happen to like the book, I always appreciate reviews. But, hey, I also understand that maybe you don't really want to go through that effort. In any case, enjoy. :)

Spiritbound (Dark Lust: Book One) Published!

Description: As apprentice to the tribe's spiritual leader, Ysiel is meant to be pure of both heart and mind. Her struggle to remain pure is complicated when the huntress she has desired for years is assigned to be her guard. One fateful day, after the young apprentice returns from spying on her guardian's bath, both of them give in despite their differences. Soon, however, they discover that not all is as it should be in the peaceful tribe. Still reeling from the intensity of their union, they are about to face the adventure of a lifetime...

Spiritbound is the first chapter in a 5-part erotic fantasy story. It follows the adventures of an apprentice and her protector as they struggle to understand the peril they and their tribe are in, while trying to come to terms with their lust for darker things. There is no compromise between the sheets or in life, once they are thrust into the wilds.

Spiritbound is a 10.000+ words futanari story involving spirit magic and hard sex. Fade to black has been abolished here, and so has realism.

The Dark Lust series consists of the following titles:
Spiritbound (25th Jan 2015)
Forestbound (8th Feb 2015)
Soulbound (22nd Feb 2015)
Starbound (8th Mar 2015)
Homebound (22nd Mar 2015)

Author Notes: I can't tell you how happy I am to finally be publishing new material. I -really- hope you enjoy the beginning of this 5-part series. And rest assured. This one will not stop halfway through, because I'm writing the final parts of it right now. It's safe to invest!

Also, I should remind those of you who for one reason or another cannot use Amazon: Send me an email requesting the story and you will get it for free. You can check the contact page for my email. I know it's not ideal, but it's the best I can do while testing out how Kindle Unlimited works out for me.

Fetish Friday #7

Once again, I don't really know where to send you for this one. But, hey, we can just appreciate it here! If you've read a decent amount of my work, you probably know that I like writing about well-built muscly-girls. It's a weakness I know not everyone shares, but... Sometimes we have to write what we like. Not quite as explicit as the other images, I guess, but this series of posts isn't just about porn! It's about what I take inspiration from at certain times when writing.

Side Note: Sunday! This Sunday! First new material in far too long is coming out. It is sadly Amazon-exclusive for now. Even so! Loads of excitement and exclamation marks.

Hey, I Know This

This applies to writing, too. I try to tell myself that what counts is that I keep working on getting better, and that readers enjoy what I write, but it's still inescapable.

With that dose of angst over, let us once again return to looking forward to Sunday! New material! Yaaaay! I'm probably the most excited over this, out of everyone. I really really want to get started up again properly.

Also... Exam-time is over! I'm free! FREE! To write stuff in peace.

Fetish Friday #6

We're back to InCase again. Honestly, I could probably just link you to his Tumblr every week and I doubt you'd be disappointed. I wouldn't exactly call myself a dedicated fan, but every few months I look at what he has drawn lately. I know I'm not disappointed, at least. Which is why this picture is here.

Side Note: We are at last past the glut of bundles I needed to catch up on. So, Sunday next week (25th of January), part 1 of my newest original work, a 5-part fantasy-erotica series, is coming out! You can start looking forward to it all properly, now.

To KU, Or Not To KU

That is, was, the question. I'm very glad that I have the sales I do outside of amazon, and on the good months they've reached somewhere closing on 10% of my sales. But I speak with other erotica writers too, and it seems like KU is a benefit for our kind. The short stories don't suffer as much in terms of royalties as novels do.

So... While it pains me to do it to the few but very loyal readers I have outside of Amazon, I think I'm going to put the upcoming series into Kindle Unlimited. This means it'll be in the KDP Select program, which requires exclusivity with Amazon. In other words, the series won't be going up on Smashwords, Kobo, B&N, Google, and so on.

I've heard from readers who aren't able to use amazon, and that sucks. If you're one of those and want to read the stories anyway, you have two options. Leave a comment beneath the publishing blog post of each part of the series with a way that I can send it to you, or send me an email requesting a copy. Both of those methods will, of course, be free for you. You can find my email on the "Contact" page.

Being in KDP Select isn't a permanent thing. You dedicate to it 90 days at a time. If it turns out that KU isn't an improvement for me, you can expect my stories to be pulled from it and put up on other vendors. If it is an improvement, then that's going to be my default from here on out. I'm leaving all my current work up on all vendors, though. Arguably they could benefit from going Amazon exclusive as well, but it doesn't really feel right to yank it all away.

Ultimately, while I want to make a living off writing eventually, I do it as much for you guys, the readers, as I do it for me. I'm feeling a bit iffy about KU due to this, but at certain points you do have to approach your business as a business, and see what's best for it. This is one of those times. I will say, though, that  KU will have to be very good to me for it to become a permanent thing. I don't feel good leaving those without access to Amazon out to dry.

Now, on to other news! The bundles are done with, and it is time to go on to new things. On the 25th, the first part of the new series will go live on Amazon. I hope you're looking forward to new content from me! And, just in case you didn't catch it, you can read an excerpt from the beginning of the story here.

Dickgirls #1: 10 Erotic Short Stories Published!

Description: Dickgirls is a 10-story bundle of futanari on female erotica contains stories including various dark and rough kinks, and many BDSM elements and themes. Some taboo, some less so. There is cheating, dubcon, breeding, and much more. The heroines of these stories often get more than they initially bargained for. Some find it is what they have always craved, some find it far, far too much.

Live the lives, however briefly, of the lucky ladies, and find excitement in the forbidden things they experience and endure. Whether you like sweet surrender, needy romps or dominant claimings, you will find something for you in this 10-story, 80.000+ word bundle.

This bundle contains the following short stories:
A Different Prince Charming
Brought Back
Cheating in the Caribbean
Roguish Delight
Solon's Maiden
A Twisted Pact
Hard Shoulder
The Grove's Gift
Prayers of Perversion

Author Notes: My first 10 stand-alone futanari stories, all in one bundle. This is a sort of service to any late-comers to my work. You do save $1 over buying the stories in the 5-story bundles, but I don't think anyone's going to be crying too heavily over that. We are now over the little glut of bundles I had to release, and the next book out from me will be part 1 of a 5-part fantasy-erotica series. I've already gotten excellent feedback on it from beta readers, so look forward to it!

Fiction Friday #5

So... Given the mark at the bottom of the gif, you can probably see where it's from. I'll be honest, I don't go to the page. I just found the gif somewhere. But hey, at least you have an idea of where to get it now, right? It's a nice gif for inspiration, anyway.

2015, Looking In

A new year typically comes with resolutions. I plan to do x. I plan to do y. I have those as well. I have tried very hard to keep my goals for 2015 realistic, and that is why I will share them with you now.

My base goal for the year is to publish 1 short story or bundle every other week. This should result in 26 stories, and leave me at 50 published works at the end of 2015. In other words, you can expect a steady trickle of work from me, rather than an avalanche and then a wall of silence.

This goal of publishing a short story every 2 weeks is actually fairly modest. I haven't calculated the average length of my published short stories, but let's just say that it's around 7500 words. Forgetting for a moment that some of the 26 titles will be bundles, this leaves me at around 200k words for the year. That's the equivalent of 1-3 novels, depending on the genre of the novel.

Based on past writing speed, I could write 200k words in roughly 4 months. That's being realistic. I could write it quicker, but this writing thing is a marathon and not a race. That leaves 8 months technically free. What are those 8 months for, then?

This year, they're for finishing up remaining commission work. They're for starting a fantasy novel, or just writing more erotica because I'm not quite confident enough in myself as a writer to believe people would read my stuff without the sex. Definitely writing more erotica, then. Or those months can just be for relaxing, because I seem to be a binge writer. The point is, I set a manageable base goal, and anything beyond that will be a bonus both to me and to you lovely readers.

I set myself up for failure last time around, and I'm trying hard not to do the same now. I -want- to publish a story a week. Heck, I want to publish 5 stories a week. But I know that if I try, I will succeed for a few weeks or months, and then crash and burn. No one wants that, least of all me.

For now, look forward to a 10-story bundle coming this Sunday, and then a 5-part Fantasy Erotica series. After that, who knows. The Dickgirl Decorum series never got finished, but it deserves to be. It will be. And honestly, I want to write more series right now. I have a bunch of good ideas, and it's really just a question of getting time to write them.

Fetish Friday #4

Click the Show/hide button to see the image. It is hidden because, well, I don't want people to come to this blog and then be assaulted by porn. There might be people around!

This is another one that I don't have a source for. Still, I think it's good enough to start the new year off on! Though the dimensions may not quite fit what I typically write, it's still a wonderful, wonderful gif.
