Adventurotica Titles:

Pride and Prostitutes
Wild West shenanigans! To save the town of Century from bandits, brawlers, and mad science gone awry, the sheriff's wife and the town's most infamous madam must both assume the identity of the Black Lash! Sargon and I collaborated on this one. It's our best seller.

Witches' Mark
This one got 5/5 paddles on BDSMBookreviews.com. Prepare for sex magic, double-crosses, and sexy sacrifices as gifted but inexperienced witch Stormy must defeat Thomas Winter, the hot, manipulative, and very powerful warlock who murdered her grandmother. This one contains some of the most intense BDSM scenes I've ever written*. It's primarily het but there is some pretty freakin' awesome M/M and M/M/F sex. I'd really appreciate downloads and reviews of this one.

Hour of the Gryphon
A novella! In a time of war, the restless Avelia places herself on the front lines by impersonating a boy. When her secret outs, the honor of her family and her future as a warrior are placed at stake, and she must convince her general that she is no traitor. This, of course, involves a fair amount of BDSM. An older piece, but one I am still really fond of.


Short stories by me:

Wings
When Sara finally works up the nerve to get the tattoo she's always wanted, she finds that the intimacy of pain is a fine prelude to the intimacy of pleasure. Appeared in the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, so I must've been doing something right. I think it's the cock jewelry, myself.

The End of Memory
More erotic than explicit. Small talk over absinthe leads to intimacy of the body, and of the mind. What would you give anything to remember? What would you give anything to forget? This story originally appeared in the guest quarters of Jennifer Brozek's Edge of Propinquity website.


Awesomeness by Sargon:

Union of Heroes
Not porn! This is an awesomely hilarious superhero novel. If you have any affection for the genre at all, you need to read this one. Worth it for the superhero recruiting scene alone. Tears. There were tears.

Cold Lady
Once upon a time, Sargon decided to see exactly how scary he could make a scary story. I dare you to read this one at home, alone, at night, and not get a terrible case of the shudders. I'm still kind of angry with him for how bad it freaked me out the first time I read it.


Download 'em all! You literally have nothing to lose.

If you have read our stuff and liked it, pass the links to your friends and they can get a free taste. And, if I can ask a major favor of those of you who do download and read, review us on Amazon and Smashwords? It helps us sell, and obviously we are in favor of that.

There are also a ton of books by other authors available at various discount levels. I suggest checking it out!

You can take a look at what other authors are doing here.

TW: Bloodplay. Not loads, but it's there. I personally think it's super-hot. Also some quasi-consensual/coercive sex.
naamah_darling: Close cropped image of a blonde ponytailed man with a woman pulling a black stocking tightly around his neck. (BDSM)
So, I just sent the next four chapters of Frontiers and Fables to Sargon.  Only I sent it to the slightly wrong email address.

So some anonymous person just got four chapters of bisexual pirate bondage porn.  The first two are especially filthy.  Femdom flogging, restraint, bar gags, butt-plugs, F/F, female ejaculation, humiliation. . . .

I hope this random guy is understanding, or I'm gonna end up on some sort of watch list.

I did send another message with DEAR GOD PLEASE DISREGARD THE FORMER EMAIL in the title.  Hopefully he'll listen.  Or at least be entertained by what he finds.

I'm so sorry, random person.  I hope you like humiliation, ravishment, and fingerfucking. If it's any consolation, the third chapter has some nice dialogue.

Cecilia Tan at Circlet Press is running a really cool thing. It's basically NaNoWriMo for smut writers.

I'm going to be sort-of trying it, either to finish Frontiers and Fables, sequel to Vengeance and Valor, or to start work on a new thing, tentatively titled Lawless Stars, which will be a space opera action-adventure BDSM smut novel. With pirates.

Because apparently, I cannot write anything pornographic lately without there being hot pirates.

Details of Cecilia's project are below, but came from here, so if you want to link back to anything, link back to there. You don't have to start today; the challenge runs until V-day on February 14th, so you still have some time to get your shit together if you want to try it. I say go for it. The world needs more smut.

Okay, we’re doing it! Organized Advanced Smut-writing Month (OrgASM) is happening Jan 1st through Feb 14th!

What is OrgASM? Organized Advanced Smut-writing Month (OrgASM) is kind of like NaNoWriMo, except each participant sets their own goal (novel? 2 short stories? post in your WIP every week? do a kink meme or fest? pro fic or fan fic welcome…) so long as the writing is erotic or about sex! All those who self-report as winners/having reached their goal will get an ebook of the new anthology Fantastic Erotica and a $25 gift certificate for any ebook(s) sold through circlet.com! Anyone who wants to work on an erotic writing project can join–you don’t have to be a previously published author, nor have any connection to Circlet Press.

Signups are going on now, and you can start posting your progress anytime between January 1-14. The challenge runs until Valentine’s Day, February 14th, so your “month” can be from Jan 3-Feb 3, for example. Totally up to you! Links and details below the cut:

The “advanced” part of the challenge is that what you are writing should be intended for publication/posting somewhere. Even if it’s fanfic, you should share it with the world when it’s done.

Signups and progress posts should be made in our Livejournal or Dreamwidth communities (ideally both, since LJ has been flake-tastic lately).

http://orgasm-circlet.livejournal.com

http://orgasm-circlet.dreamwidth.org/

The posts in the comms will be visible only to members of the comms, so please do post your progress, excerpts, rough samples, whatever you like, and please do give feedback and encouragement to others who post.

Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande is out on Smashwords and Amazon!

You can get it at Smashwords here, and the Amazon link is here. We get the money faster and get a better cut if you buy through Smashwords, and reviews are great everywhere.

I'm sorry for not getting it out sooner. I know some of you have been waiting, and I apologize for that. Things got a little rough. But here it is in all its cheesy glory! How, I ask you, can you not love a book that has a hot tiger-striped chick bronco-busting a pterodactyl?

But wait, there's more!

Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande!

The year is 1867, and mad science has made the Wild West even wilder. Sky pirates haunt the western territories, savage prehistoric beasts have been set loose to roam the grasslands, and the science-enhanced Experimentals are hunted by the government that made them.

Eden Kane is a shy girl working a dead-end job as a clerk with the Smithsonian's Department of Hazardous Artifacts. Unable to explain that her brilliant Experimental mind makes her uniquely qualified for the task, she is rudely refused a position on a dangerous assignment to reclaim the sky pirates' secret Dark Aetheric Transmitter.

She mounts her own expedition, freeing Zenobia Santiago, ex-bandit and Experimental tiger-woman, to guide her through a West full of criminals, rogue Experimentals, and dinosaurs, and into the secret lair of the Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande.

A secret war is brewing in the West. Hunted by desperados and government agents alike, Eden and Zenobia may be the only two people who can stop it.

From the Smashwords site:

March 12, 2012 - PayPal update: I met with PayPal this afternoon at their office in San Jose. They will soon announce revised content policies that I expect will please the Smashwords community. Effective immediately, we are returning our Terms of Service to back to its pre-February 24 state. Beyond that, our friends at PayPal have asked me to hold off sharing additional details until they've had a chance to finalize their new policies. Thank you for your patience and support during this crazy last few weeks.


So, looks like we won. Hallefuckinglujah.

Mark Coker at Smashwords has been pretty good about keeping us informed, and wonderful about making this whole thing as painless for us as possible. I know a lot of people are not pleased with the way he has handled this, but I am decidedly not among them. I think he has done an amazing job. He was in a tight spot initially, not wanting to cave without a fight and screw himself and a good chunk of his authors, but also not wanting to stand up and brazenly tell PayPal to take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut and getting Smashwords' accounts locked. He had to very carefully walk the line between open defiance and ass-kissing, trying to get PayPal to actually listen, and this tactic worked better and faster than I expected it to.

There were a few things in his first email that bothered me, but subsequent emails revealed that his stance on the issues had evolved, and his understanding of the genre and its particulars had broadened, and I hope that this will be reflected in any new policies he drafts. I applaud him for the hard work that he has done, and hope that whatever agreement he came to with PayPal, it will mark the beginning of the end of this sort of stupid, stupid fuckery. In the meantime, I will happily remain on Smashwords. It's an amazing service, and one that I hope will stay amazing.

As for PayPal, I will stick with them because I have to, to use Etsy and Smashwords, and to take donations and so on, but I will continue investigating alternate methods of payment for the website on principle. They are bastards.

When I first discussed this, some people -- okay, a lot -- mentioned that PayPal had done things like this in the past, and it didn't start with Smashwords. Between the taking Christmas from orphans thing, and the destroying the gorgeous violin incident, they've gotten a lot of bad press lately. I've known about their no adult products or services clause for years, but I had not seen it enforced this broadly. So, forgive my ignorance on that one. I appreciate the info! If I'd known about it sooner, I'd have mentioned something about it sooner.

I do want to remark that, while PayPal was initially claiming that the credit card companies were pressuring them, that line was absent in later statements, and Visa finally came out and said that no, they never said anything to PayPal about it. Essentially, Visa said that if it's legal to buy, you can buy it with their card, and they don't give a fuck. So, good for them. As the first credit card company to issue a statement on the issue, helping to definitively sink PayPal's logic, I'm kind of glad my credit card is a Visa. I expect that it is the same for other credit card companies, statements or not. PayPal has made themselves look really, really stupid, and I hope that they learn that this kind of shit is really more trouble than it is worth.

Anyway, to bring it back to how it affected us, our books actually remained up the entire time. Mark extended the deadline twice, trying to keep Smashwords authors from having to unpublish, which was awesome of him. It could easily have gone the other way, so I don't regret pointing you guys that way and saying "Get it while it's hot!" We do really appreciate the business we got. We sold a few extra copies, and while I won't see that money for a while yet, it will be welcome when it appears.

In the meantime, I want to thank y'all for your support. For us, for Smashwords, for incestuous puppy-fucker porn. I've been shite at getting back to folks and answering comments, and I feel bad about that, but I appreciate every comment, every sale, every email, and every crosspost and repost and tweet and status update. Thank you for getting the word out. I think this time we did some good.

Let's have a cookie.

naamah_darling: The letter A in a compass rose. (Adventurotica)
Holy cats! I mailed out like eight packages yesterday morning. That's a lot for me. After having put it off due to extreme feeling like leftover ass, I feel so much better! And better in general, too, I think. I think. Very much a hurry up and wait and see sort of thing. Mood is so damnably hard to predict.

So everyone should have their stuff in a few days to a week or so, and thank you to everyone who ordered!

In other news, we have a really great sex scene up for free over at Adventurotica, and I think you should go check it out. It's not wild and kinky, it's not crazy-filthy, it's just hot.

Chapter 4: Wolf in the Folds

Her soft thighs closed around him, her body rocked up to meet his, she stroked his shoulders and neck, kissed him lushly, gently biting his lip, sucking on his tongue. She was a truly prodigal screw, and it struck him as a criminal shame that she should have put it off as long as she had. Still, he was reaping the benefits now, her sweet breasts grazing him, eyes fluttering closed, lids dusky with passion, her lips flushed and bitten red. He knew he would wear the perfume of her body on his for the rest of the day. And the other way around. He showed his teeth in a hungry snarl, drove his cock further into her, as far as it would go, intent on spending so deep inside her those twice-damned twins would be tasting him for a week.

Nyvala wasn't a passive little thing, though she did lounge under him like a housecat. The sun was gorgeous on her skin. She sighed and twisted and tossed her head, and worked a hand between their bodies to stroke herself, giving him a little sidelong look of embarrassment that was utterly charming, coming as it did from a girl whose lips tasted like him, and who was currently digging her heel into his backside to spur him on.

He kissed her, tasted her, then simply leaned there and panted, thrust into her eagerly, moaning as pleasure mounted, as the tightness, wetness, began to overwhelm him. And feathers of Aon, the heat of her.

She was coming up fast on another climax, eyes clenched shut, nose wrinkled, head turned to the side, the most unladylike grunts and growls tearing free of her throat. Valbrand didn't think he would be able to take much more, either.

He was so caught up in her that he didn't even notice when the door opened, was alerted only by the satiny swish of skirts. He turned just in time to see Korinn, her eyes glinting like knives, face white with fury. He sat up, startled, and she closed on him like a real dragon.


Hawtness!

Also, I have a new article up that ought to be of interest to those of you who write:

"I Don't Get It": on writing kinky porn for non-kinky people

Even if your reader is kind of a perv, they might not find that particular thing appealing. You have to convince them that it is appealing. You have to actually try to expand their horizons by giving them something new and making it relatable.

This is especially important work, I think, if you are at all trying to be sex-positive or feminist, and are not just exploiting an act for its shock value (it is surprising how much kinky porn does not appear to be made by people who have those kinks). There's a lot of horrible porn out there that makes the viewer or reader feel gross for watching or reading it, and the narrower the niche the more it seems to be clogged with the bad stuff.

What I want to do is create an "A-ha!" moment, where the reader suddenly understands why something is sexy. Where, even if they don't find it sexy, the scene at least works well enough for them to understand what other people see in it. Because one of the things I hate most is people dismissing things not because they are gross or offensive but because they are "boring."


Truly, one of my hugest pet peeves.

In other news, we're still wrestling with commenting issues over there. Totally open commenting, or even commenting visible to non-registered users, would mean that people's names could be indexed by search engines, which is a privacy issue. I'm trying to think of a way around it, but it's really kind of sticky. Suggestions welcome, though we will be raising the issue over on AE proper sometime soon.
naamah_darling: Lucian from Underworld next to a snarling wolf. From the dark into the black, throwbacks always have to go. (Lucian Throwbacks)
Over at Adventurotica.com we have some great new content!

I've posted the first of our twice-weekly articles: Erotica vs. Pornography!

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I've had people asking for my take on the subject for a long time, so if you want to know what I think, by all means, go, read, comment!

There's a tendency to define one's personal preferences as "erotic" because we are told that erotica is okay, that it's healthy sexual expression, that it's meaningful, that it has social value. And we are told that pornography is disgusting, exploitive, meaningless, and dehumanizing. Nobody wants to think of their preferences as being unhealthy or disgusting. Okay, some people do get off on being really, really "bad." But most people do not like to think of themselves that way, and they create a definition of "erotic" that encompasses what they like, so that they don't have to feel bad for liking it. And they shouldn't feel bad about what they like, absolutely. That's the opposite of what I want. But I wish people didn't feel the need to define what they don't want as gross and meaningless and wrong.


Really good stuff, if I do say so myself. It's a fun subject. Feel free to link, tweet, post to Facebook or Google+. I'd love to get some discussion going on.

Also, Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande is chugging along. We're up to Chapter 4 now, and it's still free to read!

Get started:

Chapter 1: An Unintended Embarrassment
Chapter 2: An Unwarranted Refusal
Chapter 3: An Ill-Advised Plan of Action
Chapter 4: The Adequate Escape

Also! Plugging for a friend's webcomic! Go check out Walking on Broken Glass, and if you like what you see, kick some fundage toward their Kickstarter to fund the next print issue. They aren't far from their goal. I frankly think the sketch updates are the best thing to hit my RSS bookmarks every week. Caytlin's art makes me LOL. And if you link to them and let them know, they will enter you in a drawing for a signed and sketched issue, so even if you can't donate, spread the word and win cool shit! And everyone wins.

Yes! It's time for the next book trailer! Sorry for those who see this twice, but there's people reading me that don't read [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams, and vice-versa. Tell me this isn't the best title ever:

Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande!


Opens with jerky, sepia-toned newsreel footage from the 19th Century. We see wide streets thronged with horses and carriages, women in big dresses and men with funny hats and big moustaches. We faintly hear plinky player-piano music.

SEXY KATE BECKINSALE-SOUNDING NARRATOR: The Civil War ended in 1865, and a new era began in the United States.

More footage of workers driving railspikes, chugging trains, steam billowing as people cheer.

SEXY NARRATRIX: It was a new age. A time of expansion, a time of technology leaping forward in great bounds, a time when anything seemed possible.

Machines with whirring gears, spinning flywheels, and great cascades of sparks.

SEXY SEXY OH YEAH BABY: The railroads expanded across the nation, opening the vast, uncharted territories of the frontier. Here the West began, and it engaged the imagination of Americans as few things ever had, or ever would again.

Train vanishes into a tunnel and we follow it, the screen going black.

SEXY NARRATOR IS SERIOUS NOW: (Screen is silent and black for a beat) But all of it – everything you ever learned – was a lie.

BOOM! We go to a full-color sweeping shot of the surreal landscape of the Southwest – pillars of stone and vast open spaces of barren red earth. An AIRSHIP swoops in past the camera, sun gleaming on its copper-plated sides, showing off open gunports and the churning blades of the propellers that drive it. We pan slowly past the stern as it pulls away to reveal a GIANT PIRATE FLAG! Music swells and we see the Smithsonian Institute, inside we see EDEN KANE crossing a fancy room and peering through a doorway. She is young and pretty but dressed somewhat poorly.

MAN IN VO: "This pirate matter, you understand, is far too important to entrust to just anyone."

ANOTHER MAN IN VO: "So you said in your cable, something about a code machine?"

Closeup on EDEN as she peeks through the door.

FIRST MAN IN VO: "It could be aboard an airship, but we think it may be in El Dorado."

Wide shot of a cliffside city with airships all around it, coming and going, swooshing past the camera. Cut to EDEN looking flustered and nervous.

EDEN: "Sir, I would like to volunteer for the mission to find El Dorado and the coding machine."

Cut to the dour face of the first man, then to the second man. Two-shot and they both laugh derisively.

BOOM! The music kicks up and we get rapid-cut shots of: airships with all guns blazing, exploding, men clashing sword to sword and firing pistols as they scream war-cries. This continues as . . .

FIRST MAN IN VO: "This is going to be a tremendously dangerous mission, young lady. It will entail travel across the most forbidding and hostile terrain in the territories of the thirty-seven states and beyond them. It will mean dealing with savages, cutthroats, anarchists and outlaws of all sorts. It is not a mission for a clerk or a woman."

Cut back to him as he stands up and points directly at her.

FIRST MAN: "Now kindly get back to your job while you still have it!"

EDEN: (Eyes downcast) "Yes sir."

RETURN OF THE SEXY NARRATOR: If you want to have an adventure. . .

We cut to ZENOBIA in a cage. She is a tall and stacked woman with tiger stripes down her arms and back and thighs. She stands up slowly.

EDEN VO AS WE CHECK OUT ZENOBIA'S HOTNESS: "I know everything about you. I read all the encrypted files. You were a bandit in Texas before the war. They caught you and brought you here. They gave you to Doctor Laclos for his theriomorphic experiments."

Quick cuts of ZENOBIA snarling and fighting like a feral animal, ZENOBIA with a sword in her hand and surrounded by men on the deck of an airship, ZENOBIA with a knife in her hand, snarling and bloody, ZENOBIA doing a backflip off an airship, middle finger upraised.

EDEN VO AS WE WATCH ZENOBIA KICK ASS: "Most of his subjects died."

Close shot of ZENOBIA's eyes as she looks up, bright gold.

EDEN VO: "But not you."

Cut to EDEN leaning toward the bars, her face earnest.

EDEN: "I need you, I need someone who can handle themselves, someone who can fight."

ZENOBIA: "What for?"

EDEN: "I can find El Dorado."

SEXY NARRATOR: . . .You're going to have to break a few rules.

ZENOBIA (leaning on the bars of her cage): "And what do I get from this?"

EDEN (cocks an eyebrow): "Don't you want out of here?"

Cut back to Zenobia, music stops. A beat, and then she grins with her sharp teeth.

BOOM! The music kicks into high gear and we get rapid cuts of gun battles, swordfights, EDEN and ZENOBIA kissing like maniacs, then standing back to back with swords ready. Charging bandits! Explosions! Dinosaurs! Shit, yeah, you heard me!


NARRATOR OF SEXY AWESOME: Everything you thought was true . . .

Pirates charging the camera! Swords clash! Naked thrusting!

NARRATOR TEH SEXIEST: . . . is a lie.

Six-legged horse! Hot chick with a rattlesnake tattoo down her back! ZENOBIA getting seriously fucked!

NARRATOR IS AWESOME YO: And the history you never knew . . .

Woman with horns cracks a whip! Scaled dragon-man grabs EDEN and kisses the fuck out of her!

NARRATOR KEEPS ON GOING: . . . is the greatest story of them all.

Witches' Mark Chapter 50: Laid to Rest is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

The last chapter. The end. Finito.

I am really, really sad to see it go. Like, mega mixed feelings.

I'm very proud of it. It'll get one more polish and then get turned into an e-book as soon as I can manage it!

Tomorrow we'll have a preview trailer for the next project, though! It's awesome.

Pardon the brevity. I'm really tired and my head hurts, and I kind of want to go play with my kittens.

I am working on Darius and Winter's backstory, a more or less novella-length piece, and I haven't yet decided whether to publish it serially, as a bit of filler between Witches' Mark and what comes next, as bonus content in the Witches' Mark e-book, or separately as its own e-book. Each possibility has its strong points.

The more serious narrative with greater character depth has been quite rewarding, but we're going back to action/adventure porn for the next one – I will be announcing that one later in the week. That one will be all Sargon's, though I'll be editing lightly. I don't want to claim credit. I hope that everyone who has enjoyed what we've done so far will stick around for the next project.

I, frankly, need the break, and I want to get back to work on a couple of things that are going to be all mine, so I hope everyone understands and sticks with us. We need you all if we're going to make this work.

We're running the new site based on a suggested donation model. Membership will start at $5.00 a month, but you can set your own recurring amount if you want to donate more, which we really hope people will. I'll be putting up a "donate" button somewhere, too, I'm sure, so that people can drop some extra in from time to time for werewolf meds and kitty food, if they feel so inclined.

Witches' Mark Chapter 47: The Gathering Wilderness is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

This marks the beginning of the final run of action! Oh my god, I don't want this to be over! Noooo!

I am still no closer to a cover, by the way. Arrrgh. I know what I want, and don't have the means to make it happen. Grrr.

Witches' Mark Chapter 46: What the Heart Demands is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Kind of a serious chapter, but I like it. It has some really good character moments, and pays off a character arc. I can't say much more than that without committing spoiler.

Man, I SO don't want this to be over, but I SO want to post the last few chapters. I'm not ashamed to say that Sargon handled the big final action scene, and it's amazing. And, again, I can't say any more without committing spoiler. But . . . wow.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has been reading. It's an honor to know that people are taking a chance on our work even though we haven't gone the traditional publishing route, and finding it worth the investment. It means the world to me that I have readers. I hope you all continue to do so once we've moved to the website, which will be up really soon. We'll be giving more than adequate warning before the switch, and will work with people to make sure that everything gets ironed out.

Witches' Mark Chapter 45: Dark Night of the Soul is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

We are approaching the end of Witches' Mark!

The next project, which I'll be announcing as soon as the website is ready, is already in the works. Sargon is doing the legwork on the next one; we're going to try to alternate to keep us both fresh. This one has been mostly mine. I'm looking forward to giving Sargon the reins. He did a fine job on Pride and Prostitutes, most of which was his, and I hope you'll all keep reading. We really, really need this to work.

Thank you to everyone who has donated!
