This week has gone surprisingly quietly on my side of things. I’ve had plenty of stuff keeping me occupied of course, but the world at large seems to be letting me focus on getting things done… so that’s appreciated!
It has been close to three months or more since I’ve gone further than my mailbox, but that has meant I’ve churned out plenty of fun stories for all of you to enjoy! My support to everyone who is commuting during these difficult times.
That said, next week will finally have the first Inky Prelude dropping! Are you all excited? Because I am very excited!
This story is the first of a series that I think you’ll all quite enjoy. If you’d like to jump on this now, you can add it to your library on Smashwords, or preorder from Amazon!
I have another release dropping this week over on the EMCSA and ROM, namely a story called Golden Snare. Eye fascination, pendulums, coins, and a strap-on! What’s not to love? If you want to read it now you can over on my Patreon at the $10 tier, as well as tomorrow you’ll be able to see the second half of a story my $10 patrons got to see last week!
That’s all from me for the moment! I hope you all continue to enjoy, and that you take good care of yourselves and each other.
I won’t have a blog post until next week after the new year, so I need to get this out here now for it to be relevant! May 2021 be a year full of happiness and joy for all of you. That would be great for all of us to have a nice, happy, cheerful time. Things won’t magically fix overnight… but I wouldn’t mind if they did in quick order.
But this week has a new release… The Argentum Project Volume 12!
Available on both Smashwords and Amazon, you can now see the thrilling conclusion! Patina and The Domina Argenti, facing off for the fate of Midas City… and the world!
If you’d like to have all of it gathered up together? It won’t be out for another couple of weeks–releases are slowing down to every-other-week instead of every week–but you can preorder the compiled The Argentum Project now on both Smashwords or Amazon! The paperback will be up on Amazon soon, but not quite yet. Goodness it’s one heck of a big book, over 240,000 words… and over six-hundred pages!
This weekend a new Eleanor story will be coming out over on MC Stories! The third part will be up on my Patreon, so if you want to get to read it all right away… the $10 tier will hook you up with that right away!
What does the new year hold from me?
A lot of ink.
What does that mean? Well, you’ll be finding out very soon. Things are coming out slower from here on to help with reading, but I promise, hitting 26 updates this year is still going to get a lot of very fun stories. This year on the epub side is going to be a very Silver Girl focused year. I intend to have more sales throughout the year, but every release scheduled? That’s a year of Silver Girl!
If you’ve enjoyed Silver Girl, then I think 2021 will be a lot of fun for you!
For now, I hope you take good care of yourselves… and each other!
So, this week I made a little mistake. While trying to format this week’s release, The Argentum Project Volume 9: Te Nosce…
It accidentally ended up with the text of Volume 8 x.x
That’s really inexcusable, and I’m quite sorry. The problem has been fixed on Smashwords, and I’ve submitted the proper draft to Amazon. Hopefully this will be fixed in short order. For the meantime, please accept my humblest apologies.
That said, the fan who pointed it out DID get a free book of their choice, so I did at least do my best to reward the fan who reached out to me! 🙂
Volume 9 may have had a hiccup, but I think you’ll still really love where The Argentum Project continues to go!
Available on Amazon (even if you buy it before it’s fixed–it’ll update soon!) and Smashwords!
The other day someone was asking me what Smashwords is, why I’m using it, etc… I didn’t even think to mention the benefit of “Oh, and I can actually tweak it on the fly”. It really is a perk…!
So, again? Really sorry about that, but as far as I can remember this is only the… second? Third? Blip like this in my three years, and nearly 100 ebooks on sale, so…
Not so bad, I daresay!
But, that off to one side… don’t forget! The entirety of the Tomes of Modern Magic series is on sale on Smashwords! Use the code VY48S at checkout and save on either one, or both!
I’m a really big fan of Gift of the Sorceress, personally, and $1.99 for a 36k story? That’s gotta have some value to it, right? Check it out! Doesn’t it just have an amazing cover?
Another thing you’ll want to remember is that Tomorrow, Friday the 11th of December 2020, I’ll be hosting an AMA for The Adventures of Silver Girl! There’s a PDF inside of the appropriate channel in my discord server, and I’d be very happy to have you! The 15th anniversary is a really big deal to me, and I’m super excited to continue the celebration!
Over on my Patreon campaign you can see the ending of Candy Pink Rosé without waiting for Saturday… and tomorrow, a new story set in Chronos, Liminal Floor, will be available to read! I think you’ll all love it! It stars Windy of all characters, someone who doesn’t get the spotlight all that often!
I’ve been continuing to simply adore The Kat Came Back by SoVeryFascinated. Please reach out, praise them, let them know just how much it’s loved so they keep writing more! I don’t want them to stop creative for the archive due to a lack of feedback!
Rumor has it that Callidus is working on something special. I don’t want to tip their hand for them, but you should keep aware of their stuff–read their story, Compliance and Acquisition, on MCStories and give feedback there, too!
That feels like enough from me for the week!
For now, I’ll bid you all adieu and ask that you take care of yourselves… and each other!
I hope you’re having a lovely Hypnovember, and the continued anniversary of Silver Girl! The original story was posted between November 7th to January 8th, so while I may not count the whole time as the anniversary usually… it’s the 15th, and that feels special to me.
It’s as many as three ‘ten’s!
While this week only saw one brand new release, I have a few exciting announcements if you prefer to make your purchases via Smashwords over Amazon! …but let’s start things off with my latest release, the sixth volume of The Argentum Project!
This volume really has things heating up! Next week is a double-sized volume, so I hope you’re all ready for some drama, some smut, and plenty of mind control!
But, I said there was some big news, right? Right! Everything currently out for Silver Girl is also on Smashwords… except for Silver Eclipse. I’ve been withdrawing from KDP, for a variety of reasons, but unfortunately Silver Eclipse doesn’t run out until December. Once it does, the files are ready, and I’ll push them through! Sorry in the meantime for the delay.
There’s a lot more to come on Smash as I get the rest of my catalogue up there, but formatting takes time, and there’s so much to get done.
A lot of excitement!
I have a big art commission coming up next month, one that I think everyone will love. At the same time, my patreon, where you can support my free stories released online, a story set in Midas City’s first part is currently available at the $10! Its name is Candy Pink Rosé, and I think you can guess some of the characters you might see. You can check it out here!
Work on further Silver Girl releases? Going very smoothly, and a project I began during NaNo last year (I think, time is very fucky for me anymore) is scheduled to be resumed in January. It won’t be seen for awhile yet, but drafts for major projects take a while between being written and released! It’s a story set in the same Midas City universe, but so far I’ve been calling it “Untitled Madam Kistulot Project” or UMKP for short.
If you haven’t been following Tabico and Uzubono’s CORE, there’s an epilogue for volume 15 coming up soon! I’m pretty hyped for that!
Recently while checking out Modren’s Discord I saw she had fun with an AMA about Whiteout featuring the cast within, so I’m thinking of scheduling an AMA for the first Adventures of Silver Girl novel as a celebration of the anniversary. It would be limited to the first story, and the events therein. If you don’t want to miss out, join my server now!
That’s all for this week, but look forward to more same Kistulot Time, same Kistu–wait a tic. Until next time, take care of yourselves, and each other! 🙂
This month has continued to be pretty great for Silver Girl’s 15th anniversary! Before I share some of that, I’d like to start out by linking to the latest volume of The Argentum Project., the latest in the series’ rerelease!
But on to other things! Two very kind fans commissioned some surprise artwork! One of them was Modren a writer I rather enjoy myself, who commissioned this classic picture of the heroine!
I think this does a lovely job of showing off her monochromatic look, her powers… she just looks all kinds of adorable here, doesn’t she?
If you want a bit more than that, there are some more pictures I have yet to put up on my website, including a very sexy picture of Pink? You can check out the Silver Girl Subreddit! I didn’t start it up, but hey, it’s full of lots of good stuff, so give it a glance!
As for more thoughts on Silver Girl to go with this week? When I began writing Silver Girl, I’d always wanted to write novels, big, long, dramatic novels full of intrigue and action and drama. Silver Girl was the first time I really felt like I was on the right track, making something that really worked. It wasn’t the first novel draft I ever completed, but it was the first that didn’t feel like it had any random, weird problems.
Silver Girl has always been a series about exploring fetishes, and exploring the journey of mind control. Characters are mentally manipulated all the time, but it isn’t every story in the genre that really follows the long term effects, the way that a character would adapt and shift and grow. Most mind control stories end with the principle characters pretty thoroughly fucked in a way that doesn’t allow for much follow-up, but I didn’t want Silver Girl to end after just one volume.
More than once people wanted Silver to stay with a certain owner, or in a certain situation. That always felt fair enough to me, but also like it somewhat missed the point. I’ve always tried my best to fully indulge a sequence. This is something I feel much better at now than I was when I started, but it’s always been the goal. When Sarah moves on to the next situation, it’s because from where she started, there’s nowhere else to take it that isn’t redundant.
That isn’t to say there isn’t a way to revisit the same characters, or the same ideas… just that for Sarah, any more with that owner would be more of the same. That doesn’t mean it would be bad, but it means those sections are still there, ready to be read again, and again.
More recently I’ve been taking commissions that explore some of these ideas from a new angle. For example, if you want more Mind Bore? Check out Rewired over on the EMCSA! A story featuring a Chronos favorite will be uploaded there soon, and even sooner on my Patreon if you’d like to see it sooner.
For now, that’s me! I have a lot of writing to do! I hope you’ll be back again next week!
Times are stressful all around, but you’re getting that enough from every other direction. My stance on current events is pretty well known, I’d like to hope. If not, check my twitter, it makes things exceedingly clear.
But November is always an exciting time of year for me, because fifteen years ago, in 2005, November is when I first published Silver Girl to MC Stories! Before going into that any further, I’m going to drop a link to the latest story in the series, the fourth volume of The Argentum Project!
Out now on Amazon and Smashwords, pick up a copy today to see where Patina’s adventures take her next!
But back to Silver Girl’s history a tiny bit. It isn’t too widely known, but the first place Silver Girl was published was actually on Deviant Art of all places! Back in the early 2000’s I used to put the occasional bit of fiction up there and was involved with a corner of the MC community there. It wasn’t very large at the time, and it was much more focused on images, but there were a few of us pervs hanging out, making things deviant.
That was where I met Angie, the woman who originally created Pandora. She was always just on loan to me, but I appreciated the opportunity to help there be more of a character I really enjoyed. Through roleplay, Pandora and Silver Girl got up to all sorts of shenanigans back in the day. It was a lot of fun!
While Silver Girl was first on Deviant Art, putting text there was a simple matter of copying over rich text, without any special spacing between paragraphs. This meant when I brought things over to the EMCSA and took it down from Silver Girl, I missed… a “few” paragraph breaks, at time making dialogue a mess.
It really surprises me sometimes, looking back, that Silver Girl ever caught on to be the strange little thing it is!
Three Silver Girl books began their life as roleplaying transcripts that were enhanced, twisted, tangled together… and the first drafts of these often had very clear breaks between the players involved. These rewrites have in part been to smooth that jarring aspect, as well as enhance how many times a scene was originally written far more bare bones.
Before I began work on this project, I’d always said I wouldn’t “George Lucas” these stories. They were loved, after all, and changing them too much might make that magic go away.
Over time, I’ve come to realize there’s a big difference between one man taking a collaborative art project and making it fit his vision, and a woman who wrote a story between the ages of 18 and 20 trying to make it not so rough. I’ve kept to the notion of never altering the sequence of events through removing content, or adding contradictory content. It could be argued that adjusting Sarah’s attitudes here or there to be less backwards might change some things, but it’s impossible to not write things from an adult perspective and realize how backwards some things I thought really were. These things have had to change, but the story itself remains the same, if, in my opinion, doing a better job of living up to its potential.
So far all of the feedback I’ve gotten for this project has been immensely positive, and it’s been making me really happy! I’ve been working really hard so that this time next year? We’ll be able to look back, see all of the original Silver Girl series published in a new format, all of it be available in paperback… and then we get to see new stories told!
Through the rest of this month I’ll probably be waxing nostalgic about this series here, so I hope you continue to enjoy these little drifts back into the process of getting from The Adventures back in 2005 to The Argentum Project’s re-release now in 2020!
Take care of yourselves and each other, and happy reading!
I hope you’ve all been doing quite well! I’ve been wrestling with Amazon over my paperback release, and I have an update on it, even if it’s hardly the news I want to have.
According to the customer service rep I spoke with, there was a kludge in the queue that publishes paperbacks, and my book got caught up in the mess. That’s not especially pleasant, but there’s nothing anyone can do about it. This unfortunately only fixed as of yesterday, so I had to basically start the publishing process over again, and given the 72 hour counter started all over again. That means hopefully it should be published by Saturday.
I know paperbacks aren’t a big thing for fetish smut, but honestly part of what convinced me to start this project was the allure of having my words on a shelf! At times it’s been stressful, but that’s never stolen from the fun of my words all in a row.
In the meantime, you can still pick up a copy of The Argent Road in ebook format on Amazon, and if you haven’t caught up, you’ll want to… because next week is the start of The Argentum Project!
I can hardly believe it, in just a few short days compared to the start of this project, we’re going to see the start of the next major arc. The Argentum Project was originally released in 2007, after The Memory Remains in 2006 took such a very, very long time to finish.
While The Memory Remains is a somber tale about recovery, The Argentum Project is what happens after our heroine brushes herself off, and rises to the next challenge she’s set herself.
It’s a really good time, and while it doesn’t abandon the darker themes of the series, it isn’t quite as somber.
I’d also like to make a couple of fiction shout-outs! Callidus, who you may remember from the podcast I’ve cohosted The Black Room is finally releasing a story that I had a hand in encouraging! His captions have been great for years, and his prose isn’t half bad either! Check out Compliance and Acquisition over on the EMCSA! You won’t regret it.
Another fun story recently concluded, Modren’s Trigger-Happy Girl Hunt. It’s a hell of a trip, and I for one have really been enjoying the way Modren weaves a scene of the ol emc. Check it out, another must-read!
For now, that’s me!
I really should update the ol website, but I’ve been stubbornly hoping to have another link to add. Serves me right, huh?
In the meantime… you can join me and others in my personal writing discord, the Madam Kistulot’s Domain,or in Mind Control Literature a more generalized server for all of your erotic mind control literature needs! We’d be happy to have you in either place… or both!
Until next time, take care of yourselves… and each other!
