So, I managed to figure out what was causing Amazon to not publish my stories, even though they still haven’t responded to the email I sent to them Thursday morning (they state in their auto-reply that they have a 24 hour response time, 7 days a week, clearly not). It looks like the problem was the author name switch, so I’m going to only put my new name on new stuff, and I’ll abandon trying to relabel older stuff.
With that, however, I am glad to announce that I now have some releases! They’re just omnibus editions, but I know there are people who hold out for them, so I’m happy to announce:
This story was something I wrote because I really do enjoy a good hypnotic story. While Deepening Desires worked, and was a great story, it ended up without a whole lot of room for more. Hypnotic Condition, however, lends itself much more to having further fun stories with the characters. This Omnibus edition contains what I consider the first Arc of the story, and shows how Malcolm manages to use hypnosis to get his long term crush Wendy to be more receptive to his advances. More to come in the next arc, but I don’t think this story will disappoint.
Crystal Rapture was another fun story, even though releases took a bit of a break in the middle. I like many of the images that this story conveys, since the thought of a blank, mindless girl with an athletic body is one that can really stand out in my mind. As is usual, it has my more romantic twist on it, but overall I think it strikes a nice balance between control, eroticism, and softer elements.
And now that the wheels are actually turning, I’m going to be getting back to the grind and starting to write some new stuff. No comments or commitments on what (which people should be pretty used to by now). Soft bots is definitely toward the top of the list, since it’s an unfinished arc, but I’m not sure if I want to write something totally new (I have at least three really strong ideas for completely new series) or a follow-up (which I have at least four strong ideas for follow-ups).
So much to do, so little time. Stupid day job.
