Soooo. We are heading into the final portion of Pride and Prostitutes, and it has been a qualified success, enough so that we are going ahead with this. We will have a lot of changes in the future, but most of them will be behind the scenes.

The one you guys care about (we hope) is what story will be told next! What will we do once Dolly and Co. ride off into the sunset? Certainly we can return to the juicy town of Century, Kansas sometime in the future, but for now, we shall be turning to other times and places.

To wit: here's the the Hollywood-style pitches for the three stories we have on deck. So read them, judge them, and tell us what you think of them and which one you want next!

Shadow of the Crimson Claw

The year is 1897. After her ejection from the Wentworth Academy, Rachel Hastings returns to her Missouri home just in time for her father's backyard spaceship to launch her into an adventure beyond imagining. Among the pirate-haunted moons of Jupiter, Rachel finds herself thrust into the role of hero, leading the growing rebellion against the tyrant whose reach, if he is not stopped, will overshadow the entire solar system. She must face and defeat . . . The Crimson Claw!

Lady Silver

Inexperienced witch Stormy Willowsong inherits her grandmother's powerfully magical estate only to discover that her grandmother was murdered by the cult of the Wolf's Hook. Stormy pits herself against their charismatic leader in an attempt to prevent them from completing the ritual and raising a greater demon. Who will live, who will die, and who will be the final sacrifice?

Age of Winter

The death of the goddess Lammasthu plunged the land into an age of barbarism, an age of strife, an age of winter. Now reborn into a new body, she struggles to remember who she is and to regain her power in a world where everything has changed. Lovers will become mortal enemies, and immortal enemies will become lovers as the world shakes. The very gods make love even as they make war. Only Lammasthu can end the Age of Winter – but does she really want it to end?

We are hoping that changing directions from time to time will help us bring in new people, and we'd like to know what direction you'd like to see us go, even those of you who aren't subscribers but might be if the right thing came along.

So, let us know what you think! And if you have other thoughts, please, leave them in comments. We'd love to hear them!

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 25: Double or Nothing is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Slippery bathtub sex is a go! Hawk is a lucky, lucky cowboy! And there's a slippery, slippery cliffhanger, if leaving readers on the verge of another hot sex scene counts as hanging a cliff.

Don't forget that we aren't posting over New Year's! Our next post will be on January 3rd! We wish you all a happy new year, and hope that 2011 is better than 2010 for all our friends and readers.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] sargon999 has left an admin message over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams.

We have more content planned. Lots of stories after this one. But the only way we can make that happen is if we can make this work. Now, eventually we will probably move to another business model, like direct subscription, but we're committed to the pay-what-you-want model for the duration of Pride and Prostitutes. Take advantage of that.

Jobs are hard to find, and this is pretty much our income. We will be setting up things like a dedicated Twitter, Tumblr, and suchlike in the next week or so, something for me to work on over the New Year's holiday. Hopefully this will boost our numbers. We had to borrow money to make the house payment this month. If we can double our donation intake, it would be possible to live off this. Keep our house. Keep me on my meds. We kind of sort of need that dream to come true.

I cannot thank you all enough, those who have donated for themselves or for others, those who have spread the word, those who have taken the time to leave supportive comments, and those who have ferreted out typos. I appreciate this more than I can articulate.

Chapter 6 of Vengeance and Valor is up at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

This week we have catfighting teenagers and our brave heroine waxes piratical with some truly lovely swearing. When it comes to Princesses of Thuringia, there can be only one!

Special thanks to Sargon, who added some great stuff to the chapter.

Also a huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] karohemd, who has volunteered to take one for the team and translate various bits and bobs into German. Thank you!

Thanks, too, to everyone who suggested names for pirate ships. That was a lot of fun, and you guys came up with some awesome names. I'm not sure I can pick favorites, but you can bet that some of them will be showing up later on! If you hit the comments to the last chapter, you can see most of them. The suggestions were really excellent.

The winner of this week's contest has been chosen and will be notified via email presently, and . . . it's time for a new contest!

This week's theme is . . . Mad Science! While we enjoy the adventures of Virginia, let's not forget about Valor, who is no doubt dreaming up new and dangerous devices for Captain Savage to enjoy!

You too can join in the fun! Just come up with a ridiculous-sounding name for a mad science device, and tell me what it does! Bonus points if the acronym spells something fun!

Take these examples:

Dr Fable's Paraelectric Omni-Polar Gun! The P.O.P. Gun is a handheld bolt array which delivers an electric jolt capable of felling a charging Scotsman in his tracks! What it lacks in long range capabilities it makes up for in punch, and for boarding action there is no better weapon! Its rechargeable long-life battery contains enough power for six to nine bolts! The unpredictability is part of the fun of being a pirate! Its stun setting has an amazing 83% reliability, and because telling good guys from bad guys in the middle of the action can be hard, special filters are available to alter the color of the bolts. Go team Purple!

Von Draco's Zerotryptic Electro-Unified Static Bolt Array! For those who find the P.O.P. Gun to be not dangerous enough, try this high-powered bolt array, commonly called the Z.E.U.S. Cannon! This enormous rifle can fling lightning across great distances, affecting many opponents. Comes with earplugs. Use of a faraday suit is required for safe operation. Not recommended for use indoors. Do not point at pets!

Captain Venture's Narcolepsis Aura Pulse Generator comes with its own durable canvas backpack. This combination is known to its appreciators as the N.A.P. Sack, and is capable of inducing sleep in anyone within a 20' radius. Works on toddlers and sky pirates alike! Its active running time exceeds fifteen minutes, but for those desiring a longer nap, it includes a vapor dispersion unit that will permeate the target area with a soothing scent to keep the subjects sleeping peacefully. Three standard-sized canisters ship with the deluxe package: Strumpet, Low Tide, and Undead Monkey. Use of this device in a manner inconsistent with its labeling is thoroughly entertaining.

I think you get the idea! Though your descriptions certainly don't have to be quite that detailed. Or ridiculous. If the most awesome one is something that Valor turns out to need someday, you may see it appear! I will be putting the name of everyone who enters into the pirate hat as always, though, because I love my readers like that.

In the meantime, Go and take a look, enjoy, and if you like what you are reading, please consider making a donation!

Vengeance and Valor Chapter 5 is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

You know the Valor part of the title; now it's time for you to meet the other half.

This week we introduce our second protagonist, Virginia, an orphan whose memories begin at the age of twelve. A bizarre and suspicious entourage arrives at her school, searching for the long-lost Princess of Thuringia. Tall tale or not, they know something about her true identity, and she must decide whether to follow the clues into possible danger, or leave her past behind . . . maybe forever.

Virginia's a handful. I've only spent three chapters with her and I think she's great. I have wanted to tell her story in some form or other for a while now, and am gratified to finally be able to do it. I hope you come to like her as much as I do.

Go get acquainted!

And don't worry, we'll get back to Valor as soon as I've finished her origin arc. I'm eager to see him again, too.

I wrote about 3,800 words yesterday, and I tell you I am having so much fun with this. Sargon beta-reads for me and I trust him to make minor edits as needed. He helped me with the chapter I was working on last night (Chapter 7!) and his tweaks made me laugh out loud multiple times. So I'd like to thank him for being so helpful with this project, and for being almost as enthusiastic about it as I am.

Moving on! The winner for last week's commenting contest has been drawn, and it's time for a new one!

Suggest names for pirate ships! How much fun is that? We've got the Nemesis and the Rakehell. What else can you come up with? I will draw a random commenter's name out of the pirate hat for a pirate surprise (this is not as painful or as dangerous as it sounds) and I might even use one of the names! In which case, yeah, I'll probably give that person a pirate surprise, too.

Thank you all for playing last week. There were many entertaining suggestions for casting Valor. If you want to know who I would've picked, click on over and read!

A big thank you to the donors last week. I'm getting some recurring names, and I really can't tell you how much the ongoing support means to me. Not just financially, but emotionally. This is a lot of fun, but it's also a lot of work, and it's also more than a little scary. (You do all realize you are reading what is basically a first draft, right? There isn't time for serious rewriting or revision.)

It's good to be writing again, and it's good to have readers. My god. That's the best. Keep the comments coming!

And, as always, if you want to donate, now's a good time. Remember, all donors get entered into an end of the month drawing for a free faery jewel from my Etsy shop!

Vengeance and Valor Chapter 4 is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams. And brace yourself for porn, because Captain Savage has kept her hands to herself for about as long as she can stand to!

I have drawn the winner for this month's donor lottery and notified her via email. All the way in Australia! She's picked an item from my Morningstar Hall Etsy Shop and I will be shipping that out tomorrow or early next week.

Thank you so, so much to everyone else who donated. I wish I could make stuff for everyone.

Anyone who donates between now and when I post Chapter 8, which should be August 12th, will be in the drawing for next month's lottery.

Now the fun part for everyone who can't donate:

Starting with this update, I'm introducing weekly contests for all readers.

This week, if you comment on Chapter 4 and tell me who you would cast for Valor, I will put your name into my pirate hat. If I draw it, I will send you a piratical surprise. Not 'spensive, but something I promise is fun, and which I made.

I've given some general information about Valor, but I've been deliberately avoiding describing him in great detail, so there's no right or wrong answer here. I just thought it would be fun to see what people come up with!

Winner of the drawing gets notified in a reply to their comment, after which I'll have you email me your street address.

And yes, I promise I'll let you know who I was thinking of!

I will not delay you further. Go forth and read!

Vengeance and Valor Chapter 3 is up at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams! That's right, more silly steampunk pirate adventure porn!

This week marks the point at which I could no longer read things aloud in polite company. That's right. Sex happens. And there's more next week. I think you will probably all agree that next week is way too far away.

Thank you ever so much to those of you who have been reading and commenting. I feel like I'm off to a great start, and I'm looking forward to future installments immensely. The only trouble with telling a story you would like to read is that you not only have to wait to find out what happens, you actually have to do the work yourself. Once a week is not often enough to read, but unfortunately, it's what I can keep up with on the writing end, and still keep my nice, comfy two-week cushion.

Starting next week there will be contests! Contests for commenters, for linking people, and for donors. Up for grabs will be items from the Morningstar Hall etsy site, as well as items I'm not offering anywhere else.

But, I hear you ask, what about those of us who have already donated, or are going to donate this week? Well, next week marks one month, and the drawings for the merchandise will be monthly, so that works out very nicely! I've kept track of all the donors -- thank you all! -- and anyone who has donated or donates through next Thursday will be put in the running for a Faery Jewel suncatcher or pendant in your choice of colors. (I'll be notifying you via your PayPal email, just so you know.)

I'm still trying to figure out how best to do all this, so bear with me. Mostly, I think it's just going to be fun!

And, as always, I'm going to make it just this easy to medicate the lycanthropic pornographer. Sorry to flog it, but it's becoming necessary. Seroquel is not cheap and neither are blood tests for my thyroid meds, and my new insurance doesn't cover as much of those expenses as the COBRA insurance did.

Vengeance and Valor Chapter 2 is up at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Our hero is betrayed, and then there are pirates! And wonderflonium!*

Those of you who voted for devil woman pirates should enjoy Captain Savage in all her cloven-hoofed glory. I promise she spends a lot of time naked. The sex starts in the next installment, but I promise the plot chapters will be rollicking good fun!

And, as always, I'm going to make it just this easy to medicate the lycanthropic pornographer. Sorry to flog it, but it's becoming necessary.







Hope you're enjoying. Hope you're reading. Really, what is there not to love about goofy steampunk pirate porn?

You don't have to ask to be friended, by the way. All the Vengeance and Valor stuff will be posted unlocked, and I will be unlocking past entries as well. This is my way -- perhaps over-optimistically -- of not having to wrestle with the friending limits on my end.

As always, feel free to leave comments either here or there! If I know what you like, I can do more of that stuff.

* It was that, unobtainium, phlebotinum, or the doesn't-matter. I went with my gut.

Over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams I have posted the first installment of the steampunk adventurotica I promised you.

The Chronicles of Captain Blackheart Vol. 1: Vengeance and Valor

Summary:
In order to find his father's secret workshop and gain the knowledge hidden there, young genius gadgeteer Valor Fable must throw in with the dreadful and lovely Captain Savage, a science pirate seeking the lost treasure of Captain Blackheart.

Warning:
The sexual encounters in Valor and Vengeance encompass all sexual orientations and include a wide variety of BDSM themes.

Here's the deal, folks: I am going to try to update once a week. There will be sex, but not in every single update. I write a lot of plot. When there is sex I will try to keep it interesting. I like variety. There'll be kink and vanilla, boys and girls, girls and girls, boys and boys, borderline non-con and sappy romance. I like a little of everything, I write a little of everything. This is just how I roll. Something for everyone!

I am not putting it under f-lock. You don't have to ask to be friended. The whole journal is flagged for adult content and I figure y'all are grown-up enough to cope with that. All I ask is that if you plan to read, please friend [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams so I have some idea of how many folks are following along and so, if I have to, I CAN friend everyone and f-lock the whole thing if I must.

Also, comment! Ask questions, discuss the story among yourselves, go for it. The great thing about storytelling online is that you get to interact with other readers!

The second thing I ask is that if you like it, please link to it. I have some fun ideas coming up, with everyone who links being entered in regular drawings for neat handmade stuff. Don't feel that you have to wait, though. I need all the startup enthusiasm I can get.

And the last thing I will ask of you is that if you like what you read, and you have the money, you donate whatever you think the storytelling's worth. My insurance subsidy runs out at the end of this month. I need bloodwork about three times a year, in addition to other doctor visits, my meds, and visits to my therapist. I don't have a source of income right now besides what I make and sell, and what I write.

Also, conventional wisdom is that people will not buy plot-heavy erotica that features a mix of straight, gay, and bisexual content. I think publishers are terribly, terribly misinformed about that, and I would love to prove them wrong. I would love to show them that you all have way more sophistication than that.

Most of all, though, I just want you to read and have fun. It's a ridiculous, silly, wild story, and with any luck, you will enjoy it as much as I do!





naamah_darling: "Vengeance and Valor" over a background of assorted steampunky objects. (Vengeance and Valor)


Over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams I have posted the first installment of the steampunk adventurotica I promised you.

The Chronicles of Captain Blackheart Vol. 1: Vengeance and Valor

Summary:
In order to find his father's secret workshop and gain the knowledge hidden there, young genius gadgeteer Valor Fable must throw in with the dreadful and lovely Captain Savage, a science pirate seeking the lost treasure of Captain Blackheart.

Warning:
The sexual encounters in Valor and Vengeance encompass all sexual orientations and include a wide variety of BDSM themes.

Here's the deal, folks: I am going to try to update once a week. There will be sex, but not in every single update. I write a lot of plot. When there is sex I will try to keep it interesting. I like variety. There'll be kink and vanilla, boys and girls, girls and girls, boys and boys, borderline non-con and sappy romance. I like a little of everything, I write a little of everything. This is just how I roll. Something for everyone!
