I hope you’ve all had a wonderful time of July so far! Summer has finally hit, and… phew if it hasn’t made things very warm in the pacific northwest! A little too warm, but I’m adjusting fairly well all things considered.
Part of that just includes whining that I swear we used to get a LOT more rain than this… primarily because we did!
Droughts are no good.
But there hasn’t been a drought of content from me, as I think anyone could see! The Ink Soaked Penumbra continues to drip, with Volume 5 being available for preorder on Amazon for next Tuesday and on Smashwords to add to your library. I do not understand why Smashwords does not accept preorders. It is frustrating, but oh well!
Due to a combination of factors I haven’t read nearly enough on the EMCSA lately, but this weekend won’t be an update there… but I will still have a new story on Read Only Mind, or ROM.
Readership on ROM seems like it’s still building up, but the feedback I get there is very nice, so don’t hesitate!
This weekend will give us the second half of Lifted Up to Surrender… but if you want to pledge $10 to my Patreon, you can get more of the aphrodisiac filled, corruption soaked, heroine goodness that is Sync Scent?
This week’s release includes some of my favorite of my own writing! I continue to write stuff that I really love and aim for sexier, more emotionally resonant, all of the best sorts of stories that everyone would love to read?
But I’ll always love Ink Soaked Penumbra Volume 4: Self Reunion in a very special way.
But that’s not the only thing that I have to say today!
Awhile back you might recall that I shared a picture from an artist who goes by Hinton Blitz! Well, that was actually the SECOND picture I commissioned from them. The first? Was this one that I’ve posted to my site now! You can see Yana and Valerie enjoying a little time together right here. They’re a great artist, and I really enjoyed the result of their work!
What else do I have to share?
I’m on vacation!
That might not be exciting for you, but it is very exciting for me. I haven’t taken any time off when I haven’t needed it for a very long time. Don’t worry, though! This won’t slow down my release cycle.
In fact, on Patreon this week at the $10 level, you’ll be able to get your hands on the first part of a new story named Sync Scent. Everyone else will get to see the first part of a new story, Lifted up to Surrender, and at the $5 tier will get it in epub, pdf, and mobi formats.
I’ve filled this vacation with fictional mind control, hypnosis, and all sorts of other fun, sexy things.
When I get back to writing, soonish, you’ll be getting a lot more fun writing from me!
This week didn’t see a new release from my epublishing side of things, but there’s one just around the corner so you should be very excited about that! More Ink Soaked Penumbra and Volume 4 is one of my favorite things that I’ve ever written.
That might be silly to say, since it shines a bad light on things ahead, but it’s not that I haven’t written other things that are just as sexy or just as full of delicious character development. I put a lot of my heart and soul into everything that I write!
Volume 4 of Ink Soaked Penmubra is just very special for the exact things it explores, the exact nature of Sarah’s identity, and what it means for her to decide who she is and who she wants to be. It’s meaningful, painful, and uplifting. It also has some good, sexy shenanigans.
I hope you all enjoy it even half as much as I do!
Tomorrow on my Patreon at the $10 level I’ll be releasing the second half of Lifted Up to Surrender, a very fetishy story full of mind control, tight clothing, and lesbian sex. For my $5 patrons, Jade in Repose, a story looking at Jade from Silver Eclipse, will be available in epub, mobi, and pdf formats.
Not the most exciting to talk about at the moment, I’m afraid! I’m really suffering from the heat, and while new writing should continue unabated… gosh, do I wish it was cooler!
Take care of yourselves, and each other… and I hope you continue to enjoy!
I hope you’ve all been doing well! Due to a slight oversight on my part, Ink Soaked Penumbra’s Amazon release was delayed by a day. This was entirely my fault, but hopefully it didn’t bother anyone too terribly much.
That said, if you want to see the next stage of the Ink Soaked Penumbra? It’s available now!
There’s also a fun new picture over on my website. Is it a bit shameless? Does it show that I’ve watched far too much JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure? Yes to both, but that’s not really such a big issue compared to how happy having that picture made me.
I’ve been working with Callidus to prepare for another podcast recording. No guarantee when it will happen, but we’re both really looking forward to it! They’re always a lot of fun, and I’m glad we’re making it more of a habit.
This weekend on ROM/the EMCSA there’ll be a new story with a superhero and her girlfriend going through a very complicated situation. On my Patreon, tomorrow will have the release of a new story with a focus on clothing fetishry and other very fun things.
Life in my corner of the world is relatively calm at the moment. Most of my focus as of late has been on my writing and hanging out with my friends and family. We’re nearly at the start of summer which isn’t a time with a lot going on… well, besides graduation, I guess!
I imagine a lot of people are very excited about school being over for the year soon enough–or already. I hope if that’s the case, you have a great time on the off season.
Talk of schools when on the topic of Mind Control reminds me of trilby’s amazing Legacy, Modren’s Trigger-Happy Girl Hunt, Tabico’s Sweet Oil, A. Regina Cantatis’s Willing Subject, and I’m sure there are plenty more that aren’t coming to mind for me. If you want a story that suits the end of a school year, then my story Strapped would fit the bill!
Next week will be more of Ink Soaked Penumbra, but I have been working on stories outside of the Midas City universe. Which? Well, they aren’t coming for awhile, but I give a hint and just say “panties.” It won’t be for awhile, but I know a lot of people have been very excited to se more.
This weekend on ROM/the EMCSA I’ll be releasing a story named Meritocramancy, a story about magic and curses. On my Patreon, people will have a chance to see Jade from Silver Eclipse in an all new tale. If you’d like to learn more? Check out my patreon!
I hope that you’ve all been loving this series so far! The responses I’ve seen over in my discord have been very favorable, so I’m imagining that’s the norm. Feel free to join us, and share your thoughts!
There’s also some new art of everyone’s favorite Shadow Kitten over on my website! Clyde_S did an absolutely lovely job with this commission and I’m certain you’ll all agree!
Over here in Oregon I am dying from the heat so while I have a lot of great things I’m working on for all of you, and that’s going well, the heat doesn’t leave a lot of room for much else so I’ll leave you at that for now!
I’ve been writing a lot, and next week I’ll be releasing Ink Soaked Penumbra Volume 2. The feedback so far has been really thrilling, and I’m looking forward to seeing these continued responses.
On the EMCSA/ROM the Tokusatsu inspired series I wrote will continue to release, and on my Patreon there’ll be a story about some fun, sexy magic. I have so many sexy stories for you all to read, and I hope that you’ll follow along with me!
For now, I think that’s all I really have to say. Please check out the podcast, my Patreon if that interests you, and look out for a new release on Tuesday.
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!
I’ve been working really hard to get as many words out as possible, working on commissions and e publishing releases, and keeping up that schedule has lead to a bit of burnout.
As a result, I’m at the moment trying to take it easy without a lot of very exciting things to say about this exact moment… but a friendly reminder that the Mother’s Day sale is still going on, and Ink Soaked Penumbra Volume 1 drops on Tuesday, so be ready for that!
My apologies for not being more exciting. There’s a lot of writing coming your way, including stories on ROM/the EMCSA. Me taking a break from active new writing shouldn’t slow down any of that.
The biggest news from me for the moment is that I’m now fully vaccinated. It doesn’t kick in completely for another week, but as someone who has been very concerned about all of the nonlethal effects of things, this is a big deal for me.
My latest paperback release!
You can pick up the compiled e-book on Smashwords, and that gives you one easy way to read through Poetic License, Ballpoint to the Brain, Blotted Lace, Ink Blots, Sealed with a Kiss, Ink Bot, and Prequill all in one convenient file! If you want a paperback, or prefer the kindle store, you can pick up a copy on Amazon!
There’s a preorder available for the next story’s first volume, Ink Soaked Penumbra, and you can find that on Amazon or Smashwords!
So, that’s pretty exciting! The original series of Silver Girl is six books long now, though that’s hardly the end of the series… book six represents an important milestone: breaking past half way! There’s a lot more sexiness to come, so I hope you’ll join me!
So today is the last day of the Debased April sale, but for May I went a little differently…
Three stories heavily featuring mothers (but not My Girlfriend’s Mom is a Hypnotist) are on sale for 25% off! Through June 3rd, the first Thursday of next month, you can pick up Strapped, Taming the MILF Next Door, and Traditions, all for 25% less than normal! This sale is only on Smashwords, and it’ll be over when next month gets a blogpost, so don’t miss out!
Strapped features a story of a stepmother who has something important to share with her stepdaughter, Taming the MILF Next Door has a precious young woman getting much closer to a very attractive woman, and Traditions has a young woman becoming a part of her mother’s family’s long held traditions.
All of these felt pretty appropriate to me for May, and I hope you enjoy them if you give this sale a look!
In a couple of weeks Ink Soaked Penumbra will release, and that story actually won an award! Way back when, the MC Community as I knew it on the fiction side of things was largely on one forum: the MC Forum. It’s changed a lot since then, but at the time it was under the leadership of JR Parz of Master PC fame. Some people wanted to start off a yearly awards program, to celebrate the most exciting releases of the year…
Some people reacted very poorly.
Between that and some of the very brazen heteronormativity of the MCF, that’s why I created the Argent Garden forum that would become the MC Garden later on.
Regardless, Ink Soaked Penumbra was voted the top FF story of 2007, which made me extremely excited. I don’t know if it’ll be the best story of 2021 on its rerelease, but I’ve done everything I can to make that the case!
That feels like a fair bit to talk about for the week, so that’s all for me! Take care of yourself and each other, and I hope you continue to enjoy!
Oh, before I go, while it seems the sale on Silver Eclipse has ended, my editrix has a post on the Silver Girl subreddit showing that two of the first three paperbacks are currently on sale! This isn’t something I can control, but if you want to grab a copy? Now is a good time!
