Woohoo! We're less than 24 hours from the end of our mini-campaign, and we're 150% funded! If you want a print edition of Pride and Prostitutes get in now!

Once things have wrapped, I'm ordering the supplies for these:

Purple Bookmark

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS, Y'ALL. I can get you a bookmark with no porn attached. In case you're opposed to that kind of thing.

Thanks to those who have joined in! I'm really looking forward to this.

I many not surface until after Thanksgiving, so all y'all have a safe and pleasant holiday, if you are doing the holiday thing!

We will be doing a mini-Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign to do a print edition of Pride and Prostitutes next week. Short, like two weeks.

It's a huge-ass honkin' book at around 500 pages, so it won't be le cheap, but hopefully those of y'all who have been pining for a print edition (count me among you) will be glad to hear that and will jump on board.

The advantage I'm throwing at all y'all who haven't read it is that if you don't know if you want a print copy or not, you can buy the ebook and see.

From now until next Tuesday, Pride and Prostitutes is on sale at Smashwords for 33% off! Enter coupon code UD83V at checkout to get your discount!

I am showing you the cover again because I still think it is really cool:



In the meantime! I would like to invite everyone who has read the book to go and review it, because I might be picking some quotes from the reviews to go on the back. Also, because that would be just generally helpful.

(And for those who ask, I prefer to sell through Smashwords, but reviews help more on Amazon.)

ETA: Got the right cover in this time. DAMN YOU CTRL+C.

It won't matter to anyone but hardcore Assassin's Creed fans, but I just got 100% sync for AC:Brotherhood. Like, the whole game. I beat it. All the missions, 100%, every flag and treasure chest and shop quest, everything.

Holy shit, that is awesome. And it puts me in a good mood.

In news that is likely to be more interesting to everyone, we are within spitting distance of 100 copies sold of Pride and Prostitutes. I would really like to make it to 100. I mean, really, 100 isn't even all that many. But I will still be proud to get there. Less than 20 copies. Can we do that? I think we can do that.

It's downloadable in, like, eight different formats, so go for it!

To make it even more fun, have some codes to get 25% off! These are good until Friday the 1st. Well, actually, to the 2nd, but it ends at an odd hour and who the hell knows what time zone y'all are in, so we'll call it the 1st.

Pride and Prostitutes coupon code: MG62X

And don't forget, there's Hour of the Gryphon, which is also awesome:

And I tried to generate a coupon code for Wings, but it's so cheap already that it wouldn't let me. So, here, for 99 cents:

And I'd like to encourage everyone who downloads to leave reviews at Smashwords. It really helps boost confidence when a potential buyer sees something that's rated, let alone rated well. I can see the stats on how many people look at the book vs. how many people buy it. Right now, 54% of people who preview P&P buy it. That is actually pretty darn good, IMO, and I am sure the reviews that are there make a difference.

Thank you to everyone who has already bought, read, reviewed. Thank you so much.

Couldn't do this without you. Porn is, at its heart, exhibitionistic. It requires an audience. Thank y'all for being mine.

Hey! Pride and Prostitutes is on the bestsellers list at Smashwords!

Right now, the link is here. It's currently at #14!

It must be determined by how many copies have sold in a given time period, because it can't be quantity. I've sold 34, which is awesome, but probably not enough to qualify, on its own, as a bestselling anything.

Still! Keep up the good work, 'cause this is awesome! Thank you guys so, so much.

And don't forget! If you link and spread the word, then comment on this entry, you have a chance to win either a free e-book of your choice (of two, I know, the options are overwhelming, try not to hyperventilate) or a free month on [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams! I'll be doing the drawing after midnight US Central time tonight.

And the coupon code NK74H entered at checkout will still get you 20% off until tomorrow!

So happy. It's a tiny thing, but at this point I'll take any validation I can get!

We have a Pride and Prostitutes bonus scene up at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Saxon Plunder!

For all you Cas and Sax fans out there. Enjoy. This one's for you.

My yardstick for what is kinky and what is not was long ago broken over some poor pretty boy's ass, so I'll just say that while I don't think it's particularly outré and both parties are totally into it, there's a little pushy-pushy, a little verbal abuse, a little tiny bit of what some folks might call humiliation, some breath play, and lots of fucking.

I think it's awesome. And it's a long scene, too.

Can't see it? Donate! Even a dollar gets you in. If you feel so inclined, comment and let us know you donated, since we don't always get notifications from PayPal, which can delay things. All we need to be able to do is connect your email with your LJ handle. The button is at the bottom, here.

So . . . this officially wraps all the P&P material that we had prepared. We will go back to Century someday, I'm sure, but for now, roll credits, ride off into the sunset, all that good stuff.

As we brush off the trail dust and stretch our legs, I want to take a chance to thank, extravagantly, every single donor, and everyone who spread the word. We're not making a living wage with this, which is what we need to be doing, but we are growing, working on a website, getting the back catalog formatted. And all the support we have had so far has allowed us to make house payments every month. That is not a small thing, and we are very, very grateful.

I really hope that you not only stick around, but that you will bring new people in once Witches' Mark has started rocking, so that we can grow our reader base and make this a self-sustaining thing.

Thank you all so, so much for the support, for the fun, for the lols.

Here. Have some pictures of Jensen Ackles in a cowboy hat. Taken at about the right age to be Casanova, too. Cute, ain't he? Nice ass, too. As much of it as I could find a picture of, anyway.

naamah_darling: The right-side canines of a wolf's skull; the upper canine is made of gold. (Pride and Prostitutes)
WOW.

The 58th and final chapter of Pride and prostitutes is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 58: Viking Funeral

And that, my friends, is how it's done. Final stats: just under 190,000 words. Of serialized adventure porn. Frankly, I think that kicks ass.

On Wednesday I will have a Saxon/Casanova bonus scene for all y'all, like me, who think that if they're going to love the same woman, they really ought to get along. . . . I am really looking forward to posting that! It's long, too.

After that . . . Witches' Mark!

I have to say that I am simply stunned that we have made it this far. I want to point at [livejournal.com profile] sargon999, who kept this on track in a major way. He deserves way more credit than I do. Major round of applause.

I will be sorry to leave Century, Kansas, I will be sorry to leave these characters, but rest assured, we're not closing the door on it completely. We may come back around that way sometime.

And, last, I am obligated to say that if you've been waiting for the book to be done before you read, go forth and donate! I'm working on the e-book, but am not sure how long it will take me to do the final edits and format it. As soon as I have an ETA on that, I will let you know.

For now, we'd love to have new readers! Donate anything at all, get in! Just let us know your LJ handle and email address!

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 57: Two On One is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Back to normal enough to post. Terribly sorry about the delay.

This is the penultimate chapter of P&P! Chapter 58 will be the last chapter, followed by a bonus scene, and then it's on to Witches' Mark! To say I'm nervous would be an understatement, and I will be very sorry to leave these characters behind. Not forever, I don't think, but for a while.

If you've been waiting to donate, this would be a great time. You'll be here for the wrap of Pride and Prostitutes, the beginning of Witches' Mark, and you'll get access to the posts for Blades of Desire and Hour of the Gryphon as well. I really can't think of a better time to ride this train.

Any amount, y'all! And it'd be a great time on our end as well, since . . . you know . . . unexpected expenses. Just make sure we can connect your PayPal email and your Livejournal handle!

We'll see you on Monday with Chapter 58!

Still hanging that cliff!

The winner of the e-book giveaway has been announced, and notified. Congratulations, Matt! Thank you to everyone who entered by linking, and thank you to everyone who bought a copy. Seriously.

I would greatly appreciate it if some of you who did buy it wrote reviews for it. I will try and come up with some sort of incentive. Reviews help a lot!

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 53: Three Bullets and Naked is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

It features an awesome chapter title, some of the funniest shit-talking I have ever read, and one hell of a well-hung cliff!

I thought I would take a moment to say that the last words of Pride and Prostitutes have been written. I'm working on a Saxon/Casanova bonus scene -- turning out awesome! -- but we will wrap before the end of the month. I want to give people a chance to see some of the new book before renewals.

Speaking of which, I know I've been promising news on that front. There were some technical difficulties that briefly stalled it, but the post is written. I'm running the synopsis by Sargon, and then I'm posting it, so you will be getting it today.

That sounded threatening. Sorry.

Also, there is still time to link to this post in Twitter or your journal/blog and get a chance to win a free copy of the Hour of the Gryphon e-book. I'll be drawing tonight after gaming, roughly 11 p.m. US CST.

Now is also a swell time to donate and get in on the action! Any amount, get in until the end of next month!

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 51: Won't be Caught Dead is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams!

Ridiculawesome action!

The announcement of the next project has been temporarily delayed by technical issues, a phrase which, used here, means "a sudden inability to paraphrase, summarize, or produce a synopsis." Just a little tired in the brain today, so I spent it cleaning up and formatting our first e-book, which I would just LOVE to tell you about, but it hasn't finished uploading to the server. So. Soon, now. I'll have that summary, or at least an announcement, up tomorrow.

Fine time to donate, by the way. Any amount, in until the end of next month. It's a sweet deal. You'll be catching the end of this story and the beginning of the next.

Since we've had PayPal fail to deliver donation notices twice now, I'm going to encourage people to comment to let us know they donated, or email us, or something. Sargon keeps the records, so it's sargon999 at gmail.com.

Pride and Prostitutes Chapter 50: Dead, Hot, and Ready is up over at [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams.

Holy crap, guys! Holy crap! Fifty posts! And closer to the end every day. This thing is really going to happen!

Actually, a couple things are fixing to happen over on [livejournal.com profile] fever_dreams in the near future. Good things.

Tomorrow (or thereabouts) I will be making a post about our next project so that you'll have an idea of what we'll be doing next.

Friday (or thereabouts) we will be releasing our first e-book into the wild. It has a cover and everything, which I will be making you look at because I made it myself and it looks really good.

I also wanna, as always, encourage folks to donate. Sargon handles the action scenes, and I have to say this final run of action, the climactic fight? It is incredible. Mad science and unlimited special effects budget incredible. He's really been ringing that bell and I am very smug that I get to read it way ahead of time. It is that fun.

So, make sure we know your LJ handle when you donate!
