Thoughts on Mind Control, Story Recommendations!

Hello, everyone!

I hope you’ve been having a decent April so far! Mine’s been alright. I’m very glad to be getting vaccinated, but also as a warning: be prepared to possibly feel like you have the flu for a good five days or more! It’s not very fun, but it’s much better than brain damage or lung scarring!

Wear a mask! Get vaccinated when you can if you don’t have legitimate health problems that make that impossible!

On other news, I’ve been doing a bit of reading lately, and I have some stories that you should read!

First off, have you read Modren‘s Whiteout? I feel like I’ve mentioned it a time or two but I can’t be bothered to check. If you haven’t, there’s never been a better time! The third follow-up to Whiteout, the Greyscale Anthology, is out now! Each of these are cute ongoing glimpses at the cast of Whiteout. Whiteout itself was a fun (if often anxiety inducing!) story about a super heroine who finds out she may or may not have a bit of a hypnosis fetish after running into the titular villain. I guess she technically isn’t the most titular, but she works for that more-or-less. Heavily recommended, give them a glimpse.

On the other hand, we have Skaetlett‘s Gatekeep Gaslight Girlboss. A hell of a title, right? This one is a fun look at a woman forced to take an internship as part of her college program, and well… a thing Skaetlett gets is how bad capitalists and business women really can be, and they use this to wonderful effect. It’s a fun read, and I recommend it if you like the thought of a businesswoman abusing an intern with mind control.

Additionally, I’ve been continuing to read through trilby as a before-sleep activity, and having a lot of fun with it. Recently finished a story that I don’t know how to properly describe besides “when you find out it was written in tribute to a dead character from another author’s work, you aren’t surprised.” Escapee is sad, and miserable, and it captures a thing I think is under represented sometimes…

Mind controllers who do the kinds of things you see in a lot of these stories?
Bad people. Really bad people.

Something makes me sad when a mind controller who does legitimately bad things is just glossed over, and you get this sense they’re both mind controlling women by the dozen but would never hurt a fly. That’s just… not how anything makes sense to me, without a good reason.

A follow-up to Escapee, Loveknot, also ended up on my to read list. It’s incredibly not Escapee, though it still shows how unrepentant many mind controllers are and expands on that universe in fun ways. It isn’t my favorite trilby story, but it’s still a good read.

So here you are, four stories you can read for free… so you can give them a look, then remember I have a sale going on all month!

All three books in the Debased series are on sale on Smashwords! Get yourself a copy today if you enjoy breasts as a mind control methodology and bratty women who always get what they want!

Don’t forget that this Tuesday, the final tale in the Ink Slick Preamble is being released! Be excited! Be hyped!

But most of all?

Take care of yourselves, and each other.

December, Gift of the Sale, and More!

Hello, everyone!

2020 has been one hell of a long year, and yet somehow I still can’t believe it’s almost over. How does that even work? I don’t know, but 2020 sure is a land of contrasts, huh?

To begin with, this week saw the release of The Argentum Project Volume 8: Identity Crisis. The series is really heating up, so you should grab your copy today!

The Argentum Project Volume 8: Identity Crisis
The Argentum Project Volume 8: Identity Crisis

Available on Amazon and Smashwords!

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!

Pick it up in paperback here on blurb, or here for ebook on itch.io!

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.

Until next week!

Writings Getting A Little Easier

Hello, everyone!

I know activity from me has been slow, and I am really sorry about that. During times like these I know that having a world, a story, something to lose one’s self in is really important and I’ve been slacking on doing my part to help with that… but it’s getting a little easier.

This year has been hard for everyone. I don’t think I speak only for myself in saying that. The ongoing pandemic has both been a horrible problem, and a catalyst setting off unexpected problems that didn’t need to happen–even in the face of such a problem. The dominoes can be exhausting to watch fall.

But you aren’t alone, and you’ve got plenty of us here to help!

My stories might be slow to come out, but you should be over in the MCLiterature discord here: https://discord.gg/JyafaCD

Every week we have people reviewing stories and pointing out things you just can’t afford to miss!

I’m going to recommend you all read Modren’s Whiteout if you haven’t. It’s a CB story and I’ve given a little input here or there, so I’m biased, but I think you’ll all agree it’s hard to NOT be biased in this situation. It’s good stuff. if you want to get new chapters faster you can subscribe to their patreon over here!

You also really need to read HypnoticHarlequin’s latest. It’d be a shame if more people didn’t read her AMAZING work!

That’s all for me, but more is on the horizon… so stay tuned!

Until then, take care of yourselves, and eachother!
