November is nearly over… can you believe it? We’re nearly through 2020! 2021 won’t instantly fix all of our problems, but it still might help make things feel a little bit better. I won’t sneeze at that!
This week’s release is news, but I also have a sale for a week, more books on Smashwords, and more!
Volume 7 introduces a character who might be my favorite in the whole series. She’s definitely up there for me, anyway. We’ll see if you agree! Check it out, and let me know what you think! A good place to do that? My discord server!
Amusingly, around this time fifteen years ago I only had one story up on the EMCSA. The Adventures of Silver Girl, an incomplete tale of super heroines and mind control. There were a fair few chapters posted, but not enough to make me feel good bout the name Madam Kistulot having only ONE story under it, so… I wrote another story.
And at the time, the name “Black Friday” hadn’t really registered so instead, I named it “The Day After” and now it’s on Smashwords!
For a whole week, until December 2nd, you can get 50% off of both The Day After, and the first rerelease of Marianna’s Conquests, The Fourth! Just head to Smashwords and use the code “CJ92Q” at checkout! It’s not too much of a Thanksgiving treat, but it’s something!
Once that coupon expires, I’ll probably be throwing out a new one for Gift of the Sorceress, so feel free to hold off on that one for the moment if you read this and get to see all the cool things before they happen!
Last time I mentioned a Silver Girl AMA, and I intend on doing that after all! December 11th, drop by The Madam Kistulot’s Domain and you’ll get to talk to me, and the cast of Silver Girl about the first story in the series, The Adventures of Silver Girl! I keep odd hours, but I’ll respond to everyone, so even if you work late, or early, or split shift? Don’t worry! I want this to be fun for everyone!
I’ll be writing up a sheet for the events of tAoSG as a refresher for everyone, as I want to keep it *strictly* limited to that story. Later AMAs will cover further if this one goes well, but I want to make this one more inclusive!
That means if you wanna participate? Check out The Adventures of Silver Girl now, on Amazon or Smashwords, and catch up before December 11th! We’ll all be happy to have you!
That’s it for now, I think! I’ve been converting ebooks all day! To see the full listing of new ebook releases on Smashwords, check out the updates portion of my website!
Until next time, 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!
And that’s a fair bit of fun to start off an update with, I think.
This weekend is Halloween! A fun holiday if ever there was one. Masks, candy, staying in doors and practicing social distancing, all of the fun is there! I’m not the sort of woman who goes to parties or anything (who would have thought a writer would be reclusive) but I know this year has things a little different for everyone.
Hopefully you have some fun alternative plans, and if you need some suggestions? Beyond reading smut, this is the perfect time for a movie marathon. I’ve done years of Halloween films on Christmas, namely Hellraiser, Nightmare on Elm Street, and the Child’s Play/Chucky franchise. Hellraiser is a lot of fun with a few big duds later on in the series (though the latest is quite fun!), Nightmare is a constant up and down, and Child’s Play surprisingly got better as the films went on.
I haven’t seen the remake, and it’s divorced from the original people so I wouldn’t really want to, but Cult of Chucky? Severely underrated film.
The Treehouse of Horror series is a big one for me, too. I tend to watch those every year, though I haven’t gotten to it yet this time around.
Whatever you read, or watch, or do? I hope you have a great time. Another film recommendation would be for the 1986 film “From Beyond”. It’s rent or buy from Amazon video, but I’m sure you can find it lots of other places, too. Good classic Stuart Gordon horror flick with Jeffrey Combs. Can’t go wrong!
I hope that you’ve all been enjoying The Argentum Project! Reintroducing old characters through a new lens is always something I adore doing as a writer… and this series is basically this to a ‘T’. Not every idea previously explored will be visited again in this rather hot, fun exploration of Midas City, and plenty of new fun ones add to the mix… I really enjoy seeing things from a new angle.
What better angle than from the comfort of a nice, warm Hot Tub with some Hot Fun?
To make sure your flow of Silver Girl is uninterrupted, I’ve been hard at work both working on future stories, and at future projects that interlink! Seeds are set in this story that will pay off in unrelated stories, and so on. My hope is to help make the Silver Girl universe sprawling and fun. I think you’ll all get a lot out of some of the fun, sexy directions its sure to go.
After all, there are so many sexy things to do with super heroines… far more than can be contained to only one series, like The Adventures of Silver Girl.
I want to do more of that series eventually, but right at the moment I was just a bit too busy with other projects to have it ready in time. Next year, I’ll be doing my best to have the sixth entry up and ready to go.
For the near future, Amazon and Smashwords will continue to see more and more of The Argentum Project, showing Patina’s sterling exploits as she makes Midas City a safer place. I hope you’re all eager to see what comes next!
In the meantime, Callidus, who you might remember as an excellent photomanipper and the host of the Black Room podcast, has a story going up on the EMCSA! It’s been sizzling hot so far, and you should all check it out! Compliance and Acquisition is free, so you have no excuse!
There are plenty of other great stories there, and I have one going up every week! If you want to see them before anyone else, my patreon campaign is as ever the place to go.
I have some new words to write so I’ll cut this off here, but I hope to see you all here next week for more updates on what I have in store for all of you… as well as recommendations, and other little sexy things that catch my eye!
Oh, and I’ve ordered a bit of sexy art to commemorate the 15th Anniversary of Silver Girl, but it’s going to be a bit late… so I might order a second, just to make up for it.
Still, look forward to that!
Until then… take care of yourselves and each other!
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!
