My inspiration for stories (the vast majority of which I’ve yet to publish, but I’m working on it) comes from a number of different places. I think the most common place is dreams. I barely remember my dreams. Just flashes of images, or snippets of sound. My waking mind tries to put these together in some sort of coherent fashion, but most of it is missing, so it extrapolates to fill in the gaps. This comes out of my mind and fingers as a story. There are other places it comes from as well. Sometimes I’ll look in the mirror and think about the person that I always wanted to be (Cat’s Tale: The First Lesson ). I might look into that same mirror and reflect back on the path of my life and choices I’ve made to see the person that I might have been (Christine: Courtship). Sometimes, it’s a close friend telling me about a secret desire (Futa Birthday Surprise). The newest one is a combination of factors. In this case, I was taking a break from editing Christine: Love and looking back at some old story ideas and test scenes that I’d written. Then, I read Sally Bend’s take on Indiana Jones/Lara Croft that’s amusing, erotic and wholly entertaining – Futanari Moans and the Mummy’s Hand (Job). Finally, I noticed that my first book sold was actually my second book published: Futa Birthday Surprise. And in Germany, oddly enough. The combination of those three produced a new story. Now, I just have to write it. It should debut right after Christine: Love comes out. I’m sure you’ll love it.
Cat’s Tale: The First Lesson is finished editing. I’ve submitted it to Amazon. It’s going to be FREE on KindleUnlimited, so I’m hoping that a lot of people read it. I’ve already written over 120K words of story, making it longer than most novels, and it’s still not done. It’ll be broken down into bite size ebooks of about 12K each. It’s going through their approval process, so I’m pretty antsy. I’ll post an update when it’s live on their site.
Futa Birthday Surprise is done. 7K words turned into 11K. I’m not sure how, since it’s such a campy little story. It was fun to write. Don’t go looking for a lot of romance in it. Male, female, gay, lesbian, bisexual, dominant women, size, futas, whatever your preferences…it’ll definitely satisfy your carnal needs! It’s up on Smashwords and getting pushed out to their affiliates, like Barnes & Noble, Apple Books, Kobo, etc. It should be available on Amazon tomorrow. I’ll make a Twitter announcement when they send me the confirmation.
Christine: Courtship is published. Christine: Love is done and ready to edit, as is Cat’s Tale: The First Lesson. I’m writing a little Futa Story now to give my brain a bit of a break from serious transgender stories. Trans persons are real, actual people, so they need to be treated as such. Futas are imaginary, so you can do whatever you want. It should be a irreverent, fun little romp. 7 – 8K words tops. It’s going to be Futa-on-Male / Futa-on-Female, so it should have wide appeal hopefully. I’m thinking about calling it “Futa Birthday Surprise” since it’ll be the female’s birthday. After that, I’ll probably do Leslie (which is sorta-kinda a MILF story, sorta-kinda a cuckold story, but not really either. It’s hard to explain), Christine: Pain (where things get pretty rocky for Christine and Alex), and Cat’s Tale 2 (which starts to set the groundwork for what it will become). I’m not sure what the subtitle for that one will be yet. ‘The Second Lesson’ seems like a cop-out, so I’ll have to think of something else relevant to the story. It should be a pretty busy week!
I’m so excited! I published my first book! It’s called Christine: Courtship. It’s about a trans woman named Christine (obviously) and a persistent young man named Alex. It’s a hot, sexy romance, and pretty funny at times. It’s the first in a series of four of that tells their story. Here’s the cover.
I hope you consider checking it out, because it’s really good. It’s on Amazon, Smashwords, and pretty much everywhere you can find ebooks.
I had hoped that Literotica would take down my stories and just leave one or two up for some free advertising, but it’s been a week and I’m getting frustrated because they are delaying me. So, I just told them to delete the entire account. I’ll create a new one if I want. Maybe post a steamy tale. Maybe not. I don’t really care anymore. Thinking about it, those people are a lot less likely to go buy a good, well-written story when they can read an unending stream of mediocre ones for free. There’s plenty of much more effective places to advertise.
It’s been 5 days. I’ve had no response from Literotica and my stories are still up. If they are still up in the morning, I have another idea for getting a response. Two ideas, actually. Hopefully, it doesn’t piss them off too much. So, while I wait, I started working on another story. It’s a story that I’ve never published, so I’m going to finish it. I’ve been told that stories of this nature are expected to be between 6K and 12K words. This will be a series of 3 or 4 stories. The first one is 9,300, so that should fit in perfectly. I finished it, self-edited it, showed it to someone else, who added some editorial notes, created the cover art for the cover, and sent it to an actual editor. I’m just waiting for him to return it with any suggestions. Otherwise, everything is set to go. It’s just a matter of pushing the button at Amazon, and uploading it to Smashwords. I should add this blog into the End Matter under my contact section.
Today is when it all started. After a particularly rough day at work, I’d had enough. I’ve proven that I can take the spark of an idea, turn it into a story, and write it well enough that people will enjoy my work. I got everything that I could think of set up: A new email account, separate banking account, an account on Amazon KDP, an account at Smashwords, PayPal, WordPress, Adobe Stock Photo, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram bugged out and is now locked but I’ll see what I can do, another email inbox specifically devoted to the new email, a Facebook page, and I’m looking to see if there’s anything else that I need to do. I’m going to update and rewrite my stories with all of the lessons that I’ve learned since I began. I’ve requested that all of my stories at Literotica except two be taken down: The original version of Cat chapter 1 (now called Cat’s Tale: The First Lesson), and a short story that I wrote specifically for another author. That one wasn’t so popular, but I didn’t care. I wrote a targeted story incorporating everything that I knew about her and sent it to her. She said it was the best present that she ever got. She’s the one who asked me to put it up for everyone to see. It wasn’t meant for everyone.
