I hope you’re all as excited as I am! Ahhh! The Argentum Project is finally coming out, and you all get to enjoy this release weekly! That’s right, I’m not going biweekly for awhile… it’s going to be week, by week, by week!
Each release is going to have a sizable chunk of story and heat, both. Some will have multiple sections inside, but none of them are shorter than 13k. Even those shorter sections are full of some delicious lusty fun!
So, to start things off right… check out The Argentum Project Volume 1: Bound Ambition
You can find Volume 1 on Amazon, and on Smashwords! Look forward to later volumes ending up both places, too!
So, obviously… that’s my most exciting news of the week! I’ll have more exciting news, but that’s a pretty big deal. The Argentum Project… I can’t understate what an important story it really is for Silver Girl as a series, and for me in specific. It’s long, sure, but it reshaped the way I think of character driven fiction. It reshaped the world of Sarah LaSilvas in a way that’s truly dramatic, and can’t be easily put into words.
So check it out, and see what you think! Please leave a rating/review if you can!
Other news, well, my Patreon campaign continues nice and bright and cheerful! People seem to really love their commissions, and I may end up expanding those slots in the future, or not, depending on how my hands fare. I’m so close to finishing up these rewrites, but I have other projects that I want to polish up for publishing, so we’ll need to see. In the meantime, please do check out my Patreon, and see a whole new way to get my fiction in your hands before anyone else!
With this month’s big obligations locked down, I’ve been very much working at finishing up this rewrite project, and that’s consumed a majority of my time… so I don’t have too much exciting to say! But I can say that I have a lot of good, fun, sexy things coming your way.
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!
I hope you’re all faring well! I’m… somewhat in recovery at the moment, all truth told! It turns out writing 200,000 words or more in a month? Can be very taxing if you achieve it be writing day and night, day and night, taking at most one or two days off at a time.
I’m recovering well, but it does mean that I’ve had to set this week aside and try to focus on recuperation. A shame, but this is a week I imagine many of you have been waiting for a while!
Annoyingly Amazon is taking its sweet time publishing the paperback, but if you want the ebook for The Argent Road compilation including Wherever I May Roam, Dust High, Misted Facets, Nocturnal Interlude, and Informant?
It’s available now!
You can find it on Amazon now, and get access to all five tales in one compiled piece of prose! And a version of the cover with no one in silhouette!
Hopefully the paperback will be up in a day or so. It says 72 hours, but it’s never been that bad. The time I trust it for a paperback, sigh!
Soon, The Argentum Project will begin releasing! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to rerelease that saga. It’s such a big project in terms of its scope, the way it builds from these tales I once called “lead-ins”…
More plot heavy, The Argentum Project doesn’t sacrifice anything on the character front to bring a compelling plot to life. New characters, returning faces… this story has a lot going for it, and I think you’ll all find something to like as the story continues, and Sarah faces new challenges.
For now, that’s me! Next week will likely be a week filled with story recommendations and other things like that, and then the week to follow? We take a turn off of the Argent Road, and proceed onward, to The Argentum Project.
Until then, take care of yourselves, and each other!
I hope that you’ve all had an absolutely wonderful week! Mine’s had some bumps, but it sure is hard to feel too poorly when your air goes from toxic, to clean! As someone with asthma, air quality is a very real concern. Thankfully, that’s not an issue for the moment! We should probably do a bit more about that long term, but that’s not why you’re all here! 🙂
My first big topic of the week is that I plan on slowly putting my Amazon releases up on Smashwords. KU has been less than profitable for me lately, and I really haven’t enjoyed the exclusivity from the start. As a result, every time I release a new story from now on, not only will it be up on Smash as well, but I’ll also be trying to throw up a few of my earlier releases!
KU terms are for 90 days, so unfortunately some of my stories renewed before this could be changed. Sorry to say there. However, I still fully intend on doing my best to make sure that, going forward, dual releases are maintained and my back library is more widely available. It’s also been brought to my attention that some sell erotic fiction on itch.io so I’m tempted to triple post, but that may be a bit much and I’m not sure the value. Let me know if there’s a place you wish you could buy my stories that allows direct submissions! iBooks, iirc, will not be too happy to accept most of my work…
Unfortunately, this will mean next week doesn’t have a Smashwords release, as it’s going to be The Argent Road, the complete compendium of the stories of The Argent Road that lead up to The Argentum Project.
These stories are Wherever I May Roam, Dust High, Misted Facets, Nocturnal Interlude, and Informant. There’s also going to be a paperback! Look forward to all of that hopefully going off without a hitch next week. I’m definitely eager to get my copy on a shelf! I quite respect/understand if you’re more concerned with a digital version. That tends to be how I read most of my smut, too.
So that’s what’s up next for Amazon: a compilation! I know, that’s not very exciting… but what’s going to come after that? That’s a fair bit exciting!
Sadly, some of those stories are still in Kindle Unlimited, and it was either not release the compilation in both places at the same time, or expect everyone to grab up all of the individual pieces before the next big story starts to flow. Hopefully I’ve made the right decision. Let me know if you disagree! I’m certainly happy to hear feedback.
I’ve been doing my best to work up a buffer, because my next story release is going to be a rather big deal… for me, anyway!
The Argentum Project!
This story was originally 100k, the longest of the original series! However… I kinda found that it wasn’t really living up to its potential. Most of the series has become a fair bit longer as a result of this, but when you take a 100k story, and extend sequences, really let them flow and linger and be the hottest they can be, well…
You end up with a story that at the moment is about 245k. That’s 245,000 words!
I’ve done my best to make this story the hottest thing I’ve ever written, and I think it does a great job of achieving that goal. Lots of twisted fetishy heat. Lots of deep character moments. There’s a lot of varied forms of control, and one of the biggest casts the series ever gets! Some old enemies, and new friends…
For the first time, I’d like to show it off to all of you–the cover of The Argentum Project!
As you might imagine, 245k is… a lot of words! The original story took me a long time to write at 100k, and this one took a very large chunk of the year to get this far. Editing is on going, but…
I’m going to try something a little different with this release! We’re going back to Silver Girl’s serial roots!
No section will be released that isn’t a complete experience, while still being a part of the greater whole. When it’s finished the story will be compiled, as I plan on continuing to do with my stories once they get long enough.
Additionally, there won’t be weeks between the release! It’s going to be week, after week, after week, until the series is complete! What I’ll do right after is still up in the air. I have a few plans in mind. However, a week after The Argent Road’s compilation releases… TAP will begin to release, too, simultaneously on Smash and Amazon!
I hope you’re all looking forward to it! I know I am!
That’s been taking up a LOT of my mental focus as of late… but don’t worry, I’m planning to keep right on going! My hope is that I can release the rest of the original series of Silver Girl, rewritten to perfection, without pause! The world is in a chaotic place at the moment, but hopefully you’ll be able to rely on my smut for some fun distractions.
Until next time, take care of yourselves… and each other!
