It's about that time!

Pride and Prostitutes is, unfortunately, drawing to a close. What, you may wonder, will we replace it with? Well, wonder not, for I shall enlighten you!

The renaming gave us fits – though the brainstorming session was a lot of fun – but we've finally got it nailed down about as well as we are going to be able to, I think.

We're switching gears and moving from Wild West Kansas and into the present day Pacific Northwest. . . .

The Witches' Mark: The Trailer



(Begin with a shot of clouds racing over the moon, trees waving their limbs in the night wind, and like an owl or something blinking and doing that head-turn thing)

NARRATOR who has a really sexy voice with an English accent, like Kate Beckinsale having a Really Good Dream VO: There has always been evil.

(Close shot of WINTER's cold blue eyes reflecting flames, a circle of robed and chanting cultists around a totally hot naked dude bound on an altar, and then the sound of chanting.)

NARRATOR who is sounding mit der sexay VO: . . . and those who oppose it.

(Image of MELISANDE, an awesome-looking older woman like Helen Mirren or something, standing with her hand stretched forth and light flaring from her palm. Quick cuts of flashy-bangy magic stuff and then a scream as her hand falls limp on the grass in slow motion.)

NARRATOR Sexy is sexy: And when one falls, another must arise.

(The scene shifts to sunlit forest and hills, and trees moving across the windshield of a rental car. We move in on STORMY as she drives up a hill through a gorgeous forest to look up at a super-awesome old house.)

STORMY (In British-accented VO over tracking shot of house): "I live in America now. Shouldn't I live dangerously?"

HER BROTHER (Over the phone VO): "Is my suddenly wealthy sister going to live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse?"

STORMY, Still in VO: "Your suddenly fabulously wealthy sister is going to live to be a hundred and twenty and leave her fortune to her unworthy descendant, just like her great-grandmother did."

(Shot of Stormy getting out of her car and approaching a tall, dark, and spectacularly hot man, who turns around and is revealed to be WINTER! We can tell he's the bad guy because the music will do that minor key shift thing. Also, he's totally hot.)

WINTER (Staring with his sexy blue eyes): "I'm Thomas Winter. You must be Miss Willowsong. Silver, isn't it?"

STORMY: "Everyone calls me Stormy."

RICHARD, raising eyebrow: "Isn't that a little . . . Mary-Sue?"

STORMY screws her face up like she's trying to look angry and trying not to laugh at the same time, and gives him the finger.

(Music starts leaning on the French Horns as we get shots of fire and magical battle, mixed in with shots of STORMY fucking several different people, then more violence and a flaming pentacle drawn on the floor in a huge dark space with a really pretty naked young man tied down inside it.)

NARRATOR who is clearly doing something naughty with her hands where we can't see: An evil is waiting here. Waiting to be completed. Waiting to be made whole.

(STORMY stands with the wind whipping back her hair, she holds out her hand and a translucent glowing sword materializes out of thin air. She stares at it.)

STORMY: "Fuck me."

NARRATOR clearly Having a Moment: And she is the only one who can stop it.

(WINTER gestures and a shadowy shape rises up from a sacrificial circle. STORMY and RICHARD engage in lusty, naked sex magic. DARRA holds up her hand, intoning words of power. Pretty gothy boy DARIUS kissing WINTER, with WINTER's hand around his throat. WINTER with one hand between STORMY's thighs, as she pulls him closer with both hands.)

WINTER in VO: "We really must teach you never to let your guard down among your enemies."

(STORMY thrusts the glowing moon-sword upwards into a flash of fire.)

STORMY, hollering: "If you want me, come and take me!"

(Montage! A hand presses down on a bosomy breast and icy blue light flares. Another shot of bare skin, real close-up, blood trickles across the Mark. We see the Mark between a pair of really epic tits, only we can't really see whose, because she's got her head pulled back and is snogging WINTER, with an arm in the way. Another shot of the Mark among a bunch of other alchemical-symbol scars/brands on a totally hot semi-goth boy; he pulls Stormy up his body from off-screen into a totally hot tongue-piercings-visible kiss. Last, the hand from the beginning of the montage pulls away from the epic rackage, revealing the Mark, which glows brighter while the rest of the picture fades out.)

NARRATOR VO purring over sexay montage: Where evil dwells . . . there is drawn the Witches' Mark.

All dark and quiet.

STORMY in VO: "Sex magic, human sacrifice, lies, deception, powers of ultimate darkness? This is the most fun I've ever had on holiday."

Because it's hard to wedge it into a trailer that you can't actually see, what this book will have:

A heroine who is short, plus-sized, and has eyes and hair of a perfectly normal color. Of course she's smokin' hot, too, but you probably knew that.

Characters of color. We'll see if I can pull this off without offending anyone or making an ass of myself.

M/F, F/F, M/M, MMF, MFF, and any other kind of sex I can cram in there.

What this book does not have:

Werewolves, unless it's in passing. (Nothing against werewolves, will be doing a werewolf book someday.)

Vampires, unless it's in passing. (Nothing against vampires, will be doing a vampire book someday.)

Demons. Not the way you're probably thinking, anyway. (Nothing against that sort of demon, will probably be doing a demon book someday, too.)

A whole lot of non-con, though a few scenes are sort of in the neighborhood. (Nothing against non-con.)

As much ridiculous action as Pride and Prostitutes had; this is more supernatural drama/suspense than action/adventure. I know, I know, I'll miss the explosions, too. (Nothing against ridiculawesome action.)

Pride and Prostitutes was an ensemble cast piece. Witches' Mark has fewer characters and much greater character development.

It's a big change, but changing things around is good! We're hoping that this will appeal to a wider range of people. Quasi-steampunk Wild West porn is kickass, but not exactly what you'd call a thriving genre.

I'm nervous, of course, but that is mostly because I care a lot about these characters and this story, and want it to do well.

I'm looking forward to this, though, and I hope that, now, you are too!

Thanks to Sargon for most of the trailer, which saved me from having to write a fucking synopsis. Ugh. Hate those things.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] apocalypticbob has promised to write some smut, too. She's awesome with a very dirty mind. You are getting a really good deal, here.

You guys are AMAZING.

As of now, [livejournal.com profile] clayshaper is short only a couple hundred bucks for his service puppy, and because it has to go from PayPal to the bank, he basically needs the money today to be sure of having it. He's already gotten an extension on the time, so he really needs it, sort of, like, now. It takes time to move money from PayPal to the bank.

In case you don't recall, he is getting a trainee pup to succeed his current totally awesome superdog, Big Bertha, whose adventures are chronicled here on Livejournal: [livejournal.com profile] bboa!

So.

There is a donate button here.

I do not grok Facebook, but I know many of you understand the interface. Here are Facebook links. Spread them!

Service Puppy Facebook page!

Auctions on Facebook here!

Donate button, to which you can link!

Please spread the word. That may be the most helpful thing you can do.

Seriously, y'all, how much would it suck to miss getting something this necessary by just a couple hundred bucks? I've kicked in what I can, and I am sure that we can make the rest happen.

Spread the word on Facebook, if you use it, on Twitter, wherever you can. We can do this, and we can do it fast.

And I will make you a deal. I am going to bed soon. In nine hours, I am getting up.

If he has the money by then, I will write and post an erotic short story (about 2,000 - 4,000 words, maybe more) with subject matter likely to relate to:

1) Werewolves.

2) Vampires.

3) Pirates.

4) Some other thing, good suggestions to be seriously considered.

Gods save us all, I will poll you for your preference, take that heavily into account (no promises, but I will try) and post it on the twenty-first of June, for the summer solstice.

Buy this man a puppy, for Pete's sake.

I love you all.
