Re-Form School!

The state has demoted teen-age Franklin Probst to girl.  He may not have excelled as a dude, but he certainly never wanted to give up being one.  Now, he finds himself sent to reform school, where the state intends to re-form him body and mind into a docile and submissive female.

Reform school, my latest ebook, is now available on Amazon!

Re-Form School!

You Have To Admire The Speed

So, only two days after I triumphantly submitted my amazing, ground breaking gender bending project to Amazon, they rejected it with a “we’ll take a pass.”

Am I disappointed?  Of course.  I knew when I submitted it that the odds were very low, but of course I had some small hope that somehow a wacky idea from a guy with absolutely no experience would somehow make it through the gate keepers.  I thought I would get to live in that dream space for weeks or months, imagining myself being interviewed by Steven Colbert and saying, “It’s true.  I had  no experience at all, but I believed in myself and that was all it took!”

Well, it actually takes way more than that.  Disney lied to us!

So, what next?  More scripts, more submission and continued efforts to find an agent!  You need a gatekeeper to get past the gatekeepers.   Why?  Because they have the keys!

A few muses on various ideas and emotions I have been stirring around in my brain since finding out my show wasn’t getting anywhere at Amazon:

It has been my quirk in life to only find myself drawn to professions in which rejection is a constant and inevitable part of the experience: acting, comedy, writing, to choose any of these paths is to embrace a life up to your eyeballs in the fetid muck of “we’ll take a pass.”

Now, usually the rejections are generic and compassionately bland, but especially in the acting world you sometimes deal with cretinous people who feel a need to take a big steaming poop on you as they “take a pass.”  I have had people laugh at me, mock me, tell me to “go live your life.”  I have seen casting directors on the street and said “hi,” only to have them comment to the person next to them that I am “terrible.”  One casting director once compared to a serial killer.

(That same casting director, by the way, was on twitter a few weeks ago complaining that he didn’t even get health care in his job, and I thought–  karma!  Perhaps your lack of caring for others is just bouncing back on you!)

Okay.  Sometimes I do get bitter.  What do you want from me?

But I keep going.  That’s all I can do.  And I keep writing, and I put my own stuff out these because I live in an era where I can do that and reach readers who aren’t finding that the gatekeepers are making stuff for them.

And my message today to anyone out there reading is to do the same.  Next time you face rejection, just keep going.  Keep going.  Keep going.  Just make sure you never reject yourself.  Keep on loving yourself, and that rejection will only make you stronger.

Going Crazy!!!!

I did it!   I submitted my gender fluid pilot to Amazon!

https://studios.amazon.com/users/125052

Click on the link if you want to read the script for free.  I would also love feedback!!!!!!

What was I thinking?   Everyone knows this type of stuff is just for a niche market.   Amazon would never consider it, right?

Well, I don’t know, but I had to try.  I have this belief that everyone is a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll, if you know what I mean.  And I feel like now is the time to really bring an exciting, action packed show that explores gender identity!

The story, which I am also shopping around to agents as a YA novel, uses some plot ideas I have written about for adult readers.   The Crown Prince of The Shattered Isles finds himself transformed into a princess, and as the younger sister watches in disgust as his older sister seizes the crown.

Now, both of them find themselves struggling to gain and keep power and young women in a man’s world.  There is palace intrigue, sibling rivalry, witches and priests as the whole world faces massive and dynamic changes, and everyone has to ask– what does it mean to be a woman?  Or a man?

I don’t know what will happen.   But, I know that I am excited to have written the script and made the effort.  If you get a chance, check it out!  I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback!

Be who you want to be, people!  It is awesome!

Going Crazy!!!!

Books books and more books!

Hey. folks.  I have been writing like crazy lately and released three ebooks in the past couple of weeks.   Rather than my blog becoming a steady stream of me mentioning one book after another, I am going to do them all in one swoop starting with my latest book, which has gone to #1 in its category on the first day of release!  (Thanks everyone who bought/read it!)

Boy Gone Blonde by [Cooper, T.G., Anonymous, Anonymous]

In Boy Gone Blonde, a high-school jock finds a ditsy blonde voice in his head that wants him to act like and become a ditsy blonde girl.  This story was written as a commission based on the request of an anonymous client, and it was a whole lotta fun to write, and I am so glad people are loving it!

Geisha was not a commission, but it was inspired by a reader who suggested the plot line and details of a rich young jock forced to train as and become a geisha.   I had a blast researching geishas and then writing this story, which also has been very popular.

Hero: The Complete Saga by [Cooper, T.G.]

The last new publication is not new, exactly, but I have assembled all three books of the Hero Saga into one text, which is cheaper to buy than the three separate stories originally published as Hero, Hero:Book Two and Hero: Book Three.

And lastly, I decided to delve into the Amazon Paperback option and create a paperback version of The Goddess Zeus, one of my personal all-time favorites in which the Greek Gods and Goddesses switch genders and roles.   I am just experimenting to see if there is a market for these books in print form, and if there is I will make more available over time.

If you are still reading, thanks!  And here is a list to my author page in case the above links don’t work for you:

All my books can be found on my author page.   And, if that still doesn’t work, let me know where you are, and I will send you a link for your country!

The Best TG on TV (Spoilers)

(Tip in Boy Form)

For fans of TG fiction, the best place to find it right now is on Emerald City embody in the character of Tip and watchable on Hulu and NBC.   Now, everything that follows is a spoiler, so you may want to just go and watch!  But, if you read on, just know I will be revealing a lot of Tip’s journey.

Thematically, one of the reasons I love this character is that he discovers he can only gain power by embracing his female self.  It is a nice twist on traditional gender roles, and when I say embrace his female self it comes down to him accepting that he is a princess and magically dressing himself in a fairy tale dress, earrings, a fancy dress and an elaborate updo in order to command the loyalty of a group of witches.

Now, to back up, when we first meet Tip he is being held captive by a witch, who feeds him special medicine everyday and tells him she is protecting him from the dangers of the outside world.  Right off, the situation is deliciously twisted, as Tip is being held in a tower sealed by brambles, and he is hoping that a male friend named Peter will rescue him from his captivity.  Sounds like a traditional damsel in distress, right?

Well, Dorothy comes along– this is an Oz-based TV show– and she frees Tip, who runs off with his friend Peter to be free and explore the world.  There’s only one problem: the next, Tip wakes up to discover he has turned into a girl.  He hides from his friend and is appalled and embarrassed to have a girl’s shape, so he and Peter set out to find someone to make more of the medicine the witch had been feeding him.

(Tip in girl form)

All along, we get nice little crumbs of Tip’s struggle with his identity.  At one point he is in a restaurant, his boobs exposed in his too small shirt, and a waitress tells him that unless he’s planning on making some money off his boobs he should probably cover them up.  He is shocked and humiliated to realize men have been ogling him.  He freaks out when he needs to use a restroom and can’t decide which one to use (very timely), and then he gets the greatest shock of all when he and Peter find a chemist to analyze and make more medicine.

The chemist returns and tells Tip he can’t make him the medicine because it is black magic and will turn him into a boy.   “I am a boy,” Tip says, and the man says, “No.  You aren’t.  You were born a girl.”

This knowledge unnerves Tip, who is totally disoriented by the idea that he was born female.   He refuses to believe it.   This situation gets worse when his equally confused friend, Peter, tries to kiss him.

The journey continues on with Tip trying to join the army, but instead ends up at an all-girl orphanage run by Glinda, who wants him to be a nun.   Then, the Witch of the West arrives and offers to let him join her and learn to be a slut, which causes him to say, “So, as a girl my choices are to be a virgin or a slut?”

He chooses to go with West, but only find himself forced to wear dresses and work as her serving girl, making her tea and performing other menial tasks.

Now, this is all doled out very slowly over several episodes.   Finally, he discovers that not only was he born a girl, but a princess, which is just the worst form of girl in his mind, but then Witch of the West asks him a question.  “Do you want to be a boy who has nothing and no one, or a girl who is destined to rule Oz?”

This, to me, is where it starts to kick into high gear because he begins to understand his path to power only comes if he embraces his girlhood.  It takes a couple of episodes, and he briefly even manages to regain male form, but then he is once again powerless, and it is only by going full on princess that he can advance and have any power and future.

The actress who plays Tip, Jordan Loughran, is extremely talented and does a almost too good job portraying his confusion and alienation as he struggles to figure out who he is and what he can be in the world.

I am looking forward to see what happens, and eagerly watching the ratings to see if there will be a second season.  This is very cool stuff for a network TV show to explore.

Legion: (Spoilers)

Image result for legion fx

So, I know a lot of us heard about the body swap element in the new FX show, Legion.  In fact, it served as a central element in one of the promos for the show. I haven’t been so excited for a show’s premiere in a long, long time and even raced home from a social engagement to make sure I got to watch it live.

The TG element of the first was promising, but not awesome.  I love the girl that he gets placed inside, and the whole thing was set up nicely because he is in love with her, and they have a relationship, and then he suddenly becomes her, and he is just kind of freaked out and wanders off into the city.

We get to see him check himself out in a mirror, touch his new boobs, but not much else. There is a trippy scene where he has all these flashbacks to being a boy, and his mom calling him her little boy, and it contrasts nicely with him now this pretty blonde woman, and sugggests ways in which the switch may be impacting his sense of self. However, before really having to deal with his new body and gender at all, her just suddenly pops back into his own body and goes on with his life.

As for the series, the body swapping character, Syd Barret, remains in the show, and the two of them continue to have a relationship.  It seems very likely there could be further explorations between the two, and that as she learns to control her power she may do swaps with other people.  As it is, she projects into his mind and influences his thoughts and memory, and we get a nice role-reversal where she comes and rescues him after he has been captured.

In addition, Aubrey Plaza plays a very butch character named Lenny who seems like she may have some gender issues of her own.

So, I think this show is going to have lots more to say about gender fluidity, and will have additional body swaps as well.  Best of all, it is a really interesting show in its own right, and is great to watch, so it isn’t like one of these TV shows or movies where you have to suffer between the TG moments.

It should be interesting, and I can’t wait for the fanfic to get going!
