My CHoS book is AVAILABLE! :-)

It's true, kids. My third book is out. 





I'm still not thrilled with this cover, but with their very limited Cover Creator function, it's the best I could do. I just didn't want to bother trying to have a spectacular cover designed; I did that with Late Bloomer, and that's where it really mattered.

Anyway, it's on CreateSpace here, and on Amazon here. Who's going to be the first to order it? :-) Come on, it's cheap!

Sorry, no e-book version yet. I haven't worked that out; CreateSpace linked me to Kindle Direct, where I could convert my book file into a Kindle file. I tried it... and it was completely effed up. And I don't know how to fix it. So I'll have to go another route for an e-book, and I don't know what that will be at the moment. When I work that all out, I'll let y'all know.

The paperback version is 160 pages. That's a whole lot of idiocy. I hope people will enjoy it.

This has been a good writing week. As I'd mentioned on Monday, there was a piece of writing on FetLife from a Dom talking about all the difficulties of being a top. I think it was somewhat satirical, but some of it annoyed me. Since it got over 1600 Loves and hundreds of comments, I figured I'd piggyback off it and write a rebuttal, which I did yesterday morning. I linked to the original, so people could compare the two, and called mine: "Rebuttal: Being a Bottom Really Can Suck Sometimes." Figured I'd have a brief flurry of comments, maybe a few Loves, and that would be that.

As of this morning, the piece made Kinky & Popular (first time my writing has ever done that), has 67 comments and 213 Loves. And here's the coolest part: the guy whose piece I spoofed was a really good sport about it. He commented and added his own Love! LOL. We had a brief private message exchange and he jokingly said that if my tongue is that sharp when it's firmly planted in my cheek, he'd hate to see what it could do when it roams free! (yes, he would)

Unfortunately, you have to be a FetLife member to read it. If you are, and you have not seen it yet, it's here.

All right. I am a busy girl. Must go market book. Must work on projects. Must concentrate on trying to stay comfortable. Yes, the A/C is still severely compromised. It blew one of its compressors and is operating on 1/2 capacity, and will continue to do so until a new compressor can be located and installed. Challenging, considering how busy the A/C repair people are right now and how in demand parts are. Blech.

Hope everyone here in the States has a wonderful July 4th holiday tomorrow!

  10. Actually, I believe it was pretty much serious, Erica. It may have just been done in a tongue-in-cheek manner to better gain acceptance. There were many things in it that I not only agree with , but have have experienced first hand. I just wish that people would stop mixing tops and some in the same breath. Not all tops are doms and vice versa.

  11. Loki -- whether he meant it or not, I appreciated his having a sense of humor about my writing.

    1. True. I have not been able to spend much Fet-time this week due to work. A welcome breather from dwelling in the cybermuck that can be generated there and have to be tolerated. I only skimmed through both postings and some of the responses on the Dom one. Responses which validated the article and will lead me to post this question....

      What the hell do people want from us!

      I am not going to tie up this page with this question, but it will make an appearance on Fetlife when priorities allow me. The amount of grief hurled at male tops and male doms is unbelievable. Our female counterparts do not receive one fraction of this! And for what reason?

  18. Congrats, and Write On!

    So, "Create Space" is a tool you can use then to format/publish/print books that you've written?

  20. Thank you thank you thank you, everyone!

    Greeneyez, CreateSpace is Amazon's self-publishing platform. They do the publishing and printing on demand, and the distribution. You do the writing, of course, and the editing and formatting, although they have pay services to assist you with the latter two if you want.
