As stated by the title of today’s blog… the Ink Soaked Penumbra is now finally complete!
Pick up a copy of Volume 7 today on Smashwords:
or on Amazon:
There’s a lot more Silver Girl sexiness waiting us in the future, too! My editrix has been working hard to get me more, and I’ve been formatting it, preparing it, etc! Artists are hard at work on covers, and I’m very confident that you’ll all love what’s coming your way! 🙂
Speaking of stories people are really enjoying? Last weekend’s “Award Winning Fuckdoll” has been doing real numbers! A lot of people have really seemed to love it, and if you’d like to read the next section now you can do so on my Patreon. If you want to read the first parts…
And if you’d like to see a preview image of Celia and Helena to whet your appetite and tempt you to pick up a copy? My editrix Kia commissioned Kem Nguyen to put together a lovely piece you can see over on my website!
Most writers don’t go back and reread their own work very often. It’s not that we dislike the works (though sometimes it can be a love-hate relationship) but the connection to it is a different one where we can just remember it, or where we don’t get the same enjoyment from examining the words on the page as thoroughly.
Ink Soaked Penumbra?
It’s one I go back to annually and gaze at a section here or there, or reread in its entirety. I’m looking forward to seeing how everyone feels about this expanded, more wholly edited edition!
I really cannot thank Kia enough for her hard work on the series. When it began back in 2005 I didn’t even read back over my own releases before posting them. By the time I reached The Argentum Project, I had a beta reader who pointed out the mistakes they found. Since then I’ve had several people skim for the errors they could find, and I’ve been very grateful to them all. I am similarly grateful to my other current editrix, aleksandra, even if her edited work has been largely confined to ROM/EMCSA releases.
Speaking of the EMCSA/ROM? I recently finished a series about a heroine going through a bovine transformation, but this weekend a new series begins with a tokusatsu twist on a recurring character! If you want to see all of it before anyone else, hop on over and support my patreon!
To start things off, the penultimate section of the Ink Slick Preamble is available now! We look back towards Valerie Raine to see just what’s become of her… and what’s going to happen next.
You can pick up a copy on Smashwords, or Amazon!
So we only have one last story left before the next novel begins… and that story? Want a peek at what it’ll be?
Preorder on Amazon, or add it to your list on Smashwords! (It makes no sense that Smash lacks real preorders, but I could rant about that for years)
As for other doctor-related shenanigans… I got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine! It stung a bit, but as a woman terrified of needles it honestly wasn’t so bad. I’m not looking forward to the side effects that supposedly kick in tomorrow, but honestly? It’s nothing compared to the alternatives so I’m very happy to be part of the effort to keep as many people safe as possible.
My second dose is scheduled in another 21 days, and I am looking forward to it all being done with. This pandemic is NOT over, and it’s important for all of us to do our best to contribute to keeping things safe for people who are in risk groups and cannot take the vaccine.
There’s antivaxxers, and I don’t respect or support them, but some people genuinely have health complications that preclude the possibility of these vaccines. They aren’t being selfish. They don’t deserve to suffer. Please, for all of these people: get vaccines, mask up, and stay away from others as much as is possible.
I want all of us who can to get through this.
My Patreon side of things continues to move right along, too! Last week the end of up a story about a super heroine who fell under the control of a powerful villain breaking free was posted on ROM and the EMCSA, so you can check those out, and if you enjoy them? Support me on Patreon, where this week a story about another heroine in a particularly bad financial situation is going to have a bit of a fun time!
But that’s all for me for now! Take care of yourselves, each other, and I’ll post again next week!
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! That means I’m all but legally-obligated to remind you that until March 4th? My Romancing Roses series is on sale for 50% off on Smashwords!
Long time friends to lovers? Polyamory? Healing and finding love? There’s a story for you! Check it out here:
But that’s not the only thing I have to talk about! It’s been two weeks, so you know what that means!
Out on both Smashwords and Amazon? Ballpoint to the Brain, part two of the Ink Slick Preamble, are available now! It’s got some consensual hypnosis, and a new villain to challenge our heroines! If you enjoyed Poetic License you’ll enjoy this as it takes us ever deeper into the ink…
Over on ROM and the EMCSA I recently finished the Inner Daemon series if you’re excited for more superhero shenanigans! It’s about a heroine who relies a lot on her AI… and if that sounds fun, I think you’ll enjoy it! My Patreon has been exploring a new series, Lightstorm in a Bottle, and if you’d like to see that? Check out My Patreon here!
There’s a lot of great stuff going on from me, and I intend to keep making that be the case 🙂
I’ve been fairly busy so I don’t have the most other than that to say, besides, well… My birthday is coming up! That means more art coming up soon!
Drop by my website to see some new art of Olivia, and more is to come! I turn 34 on the 19th! I feel like I should do something special to celebrate, but with so far…? Nothing exciting has been coming to mind.
For now, that’s really all I can think of to say!
OH! Another writer shares my birthday! Skaetlett. They awesome, and worth giving a glance for sure! Intelligence play? Mean businessladies? Good stuff.
You may have heard… and if not, you’re hearing now… but the first in my newest Silver Girl series, Ink Slick Preamble, is now available!
Poetic License, a fun little term to retool for a story, is now available on both Smashwordsand Amazon!
This is a fun little story that follows quite close behind The Argentum Project in terms of continuity. While The Adventures of Silver Girl and Silver Eclipse had a bit of a gap, this is closer o the one between Silver Eclipse and The Memory Remains… if not precisely the same. We’re going to see new sides to familiar characters, as well as introduce some fun new ones…
A series of corruption, lust, desire, and possibly even romance along with slick, dripping-with-sin erotic mind control!
The seven stories of this preamble are the setup for my award winning novel from 2007, now made sexier, more intense, more erotic, and naturally longer than it was when it won that award. If you want to see why I call myself an award winning author? This is what leads up to that point!
People newer to the series would be best advised staring at another point, such as Nocturnal Interlude (also on Smash or Amazon) or the original, The Adventures of Silver Girl (on Smash or Amazon!) but regardless, this is a series I’ve been eager to redebut for a long time, so I hope you all enjoy…!
Over on another angle, while ROM and the EMCSA this week will be getting a fun new series, Inner Daemon (which you can already read on my Patreon!) Patreon will be getting a glimpse of a new heroine in Midas City, well… new to the written word. She’s experienced, but is she ready for what’s to come? The first part of Lightstorm in a Bottle hits on Friday! Don’t miss out!
But that’s all I have to tease you with this week. There’s SO much on the horizon… 2021 may not have solved the problems of 2020? But it’s starting off with some fun, sexy new things from me!
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!
I could have planned Volume 11 of 12 dropping on the penultimate week of the year… but I didn’t! I just did my best to keep to a release cycle!
After this year I’ll be slowing that down–I’ve gotten a lot of feedback that I’m simply releasing too much too quickly–but don’t worry! I’ve got plenty coming your way… like Volume 11: Arrival!
Things are nearing the end. There’s only one volume after this! Don’t miss out, get your copy now on Smashwords or Amazon!
Want to get Volume 12 the moment it drops? Preorder it now, The Argentum Project Volume 12: Tinted Mirror Match, up on both Smashwords and Amazon perfect to get yourself a little something for the very end of the year!
Can you believe in two weeks it’ll be 2021? Or, as I saw an awesome tweet call it, 2020 Turbo? (I woulda gone with EX Alpha Plus myself, but I always take jokes too far.) I hope your holiday seasons have all gone, or go, well! Happy Solstice to those of you who celebrate the changing of the seasons.
This year really has been abysmal for a lot of reasons, but I want to stop and take a moment to thank each and every one of you reading this. Even if you just buy a book or two here or there, support this or that, stop by my discord server, if you’re supporting my work? It means the world to me. I would not be able to have the life I do now without my incredible fans.
Everyone says they have the best fans, and I completely understand why. Other people mean it when they say it too, I’m sure. Having people here to support me and my work is so exciting! It really enriches my life, and makes me want to do everything I can to make all of you happy, too. That means constantly trying to put out the best smut I can!
Next week we’ll be finishing The Argentum Project, and this weekend, the EMCSA and my $5 patrons are getting a glimpse of Chronos from a different point of view–Windy’s! You can already read it for $10, along with the sneak peak for Homecuming Part 2! Check all of that out on my patreon, here!
That’s me for now, but I hope you all really can find some love, comfort, and warmth. If nothing else, I hope you can find a good book to keep you smiling.
Until next time, take care of yourselves, and each other!
I hope you’ve all had a good week! Before we get too far I’d like to first let you all know about this week’s release, and what I’m testing with releases moving ahead. Up this week, as I’m sure you all expected, is The Argentum Project Volume 10: A One Way Ticket to Lust!
At the same time, Volume 11: Arrival is also up for preorder! If you buy it now, on Smashwords or Amazon, you get it the moment it comes out! That’s some good convenience, right? Buy it now, and in a week you get to read the story without worrying about it. Of course, next week I’ll do the same for that release, and so on.
That’s the plan, anyway! If this works out, I imagine it could make everyone’s lives a lot easier, including mine. Worrying about pushing the button on Amazon is just… not pleasant, y’know?
Feel free to tell me if you like this, dislike this, etc! I’m always trying to learn how to do this better. I promise, all I’ll do is thank you for reaching out!
Speaking of Patreon however, I’ve unfortunately heard of yet another content creator in my niche who is being warned of their stuff being taken down. We’ll see where that goes, but if my Patreon vanishes? All you’ll need to do is head to this space to get an update about any alternatives I throw together.
Patreon used to make a point about respecting literature, but it seems it only does if it’s a certain “level” of fiction. I’m really tired of fiction like Game of Thrones masturbating to death and misery, but fetish porn? That’s tooooo far!
Reforming that aspect of our society will take a lot of conscious effort, and I do hope for that. Unfortunately, for now… that seems like a bit of a pipe dream.
A lot of what I’ve been doing this week has been prewriting for various future projects. Silver Girl won’t end after The Argentum Project, and I’m already planning for far into that future so I never hit a random, nasty stopping point. While names are all subject to change, naturally, a lot of progress has been made!
If you missed my AMA you missed out on a LOT of fun! There’s still the logs, though! If you head over to The Madam Kistulot’s Domain, my discord server, you can read it now! Modren, the writer of Whiteout, even made it a crossover event! You should read that, because Modren and I may, if all goes well, be working on a future project together that makes me all kinds of exciting!
I’ve also been rereading through a friend’s older writing. Omega Girl and Silver Girl were never very solidly interlinked in a lot of ways–more like the way Superman and Spider-Man were suddenly in the same world and share continuity/etc without a lot of that bleeding over beyond their crossover books–but I intend on having Lacie Ann show up in a future story, too. I’m only not linking to J. Darksong’s works because the other night when I mentioned these plans last, he bemoaned them needing a rewrite and I don’t want to embarrass anyone.
Other good stories I’ve read recently? I haven’t mentioned Skaetlett here nearly enough I think, which is my bad entirely. They do some amazing work, and I recently read my way through How To Pay Your College Loans, which you should check out if the concept of a woman selling herself into slavery to pay off her loans appeals to you. It’s a lot of fun!
Skaetlett, Modren, and frequently-mentioned Doctor D. and Callie are all going to be at Virtual Charmed this year! They’ll be discussing writing erotica from a hypnokink perspective! Sign up here to hop aboard that!
What else is there to discuss? OH! Hypnotic Harlequin, a writer I’ve enjoyed for some time, has a new story you should check out! Dating Doctor Danger is incredibly sexy, and fun, and full of possibilities my mind will be wandering around for awhile. You’ll want to read this one!
Hrm. That’s a lot from me this week, huh?
More coming from me this weekend. Simon already has my latest release in his inbox!
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!
The Argentum Project introduces one of my favorite characters in the entire larger Midas City setting: Aureus. Volume 8 begins to show just why I adore her so much. You should read to find out!
And if you want more reading? I have another recommendation:
Gift of the Sale: Gift of the Sorceress and Wanna Bet are both 50% off for the month of December!
Head to Smashwords, drop by the Tomes of Modern Magic series page, use the coupon code VY48S at checkout, and save 50% on either of them or both! It lasts until January 1st! Wanna Bet is a fun, sexy story with a fun gambling theme based around a chance encounter. Gift of the Sorceress is a sexy Yule story! You should check these out while they’re on sale!
Want more to read? I have a few more recommendations. For one… Did you know you can get Modren’s Whiteout in paperback form now? There’s an extra chapter in there, AND a thanks to me! So you should check it out! I have my copy!
Not only that, but have I mentioned The Kat Came Back recently? It’s a hell of a story, and it’s been keeping me constantly on the edge of my seat. Read it!
Doctor D. also updated It Rings for Thee recently, and if you haven’t been reading that, why not? It’s got brilliant world building, prose that frankly puts mine to shame… you should be jumping on this right now!
Don’t forget that I’m running an AMA on my Discord server, The Madam Kistulot’s Domain, on the 11th! Soon the channel there will have a link to a list of events for a recap of tAoSG, as it will be specifically about that book as more people have had a chance to read it than the rest, and I want to see if my fans will get a kick out of it! You’ll be able to ask the Chronos crew questions if you have them, too!
I feel like I should have a lot more to say here, but that already is a fair bit, huh? I hope you all have a great end to what has likely been a very stressful year. Take care of yourselves and each other.
