Hey, people! Just some publication news– I am making my books available on Lulu for the first time! You can find them on my author page, and I will add more over the next few weeks. I decided that I wanted to offer more options for readers since not everyone prefers the Kindle.
Some thoughts on my first three Lulu publications:
Cursed by a witch, King Holland Jordain begins turning into a girl. One of the first stories I ever wrote, I originally published the first half of this story on Fictionmania under the title Witch War, and it marked the first time I explored in writing an idea I had thought over for many years: what if a man were trapped in the world of a fairy tale princess? In this case, I added extra dynamics to the mix because as Jordain becomes more feminine in mind and body, his wife takes over rule of the kingdom and his own daughter takes a role in his feminization. I had a lot of fun in this as the king suddenly finds himself being subjected to all sorts of restrictions and expectations, including a debutante ball and his wife’s desire to see him married off for political advantage.
I had one idea when I started Voices: What if all the men on Earth suddenly had high-pitched voices like little girls? I didn’t have any idea where the story would go or what would happen, but just started with that notion. As I wrote, I decided to gradually add more changes, so that as the boys got used to their new voices, they had another change and another. I enjoyed writing the first story so much, I wrote two more. One took place at the same high-school but featured the outsider kids more than the cool kids, so it mostly focused on a speed metal kid and his girlfriend, and the third featured a group of male and female soldiers. I really enjoyed this work as it explored how the changes might impact the psychology of a jock, or a punk, or a soldier. What would happen if a male commanding officer suddenly had the voice of Mini Mouse? Would people still listen?
And Krystal Kinsey. One of my personal favorites to write and a disappointment in that not too many people actually ended up reading it. For Krystal Kinsey I wanted to explore a story where a straight white man allows himself to be gradually transformed into a woman of color. The main character, Arthur, considered himself a failure, suffered a lot of self-hatred and has become consumed with the belief that the cure for everything wrong with him is FAME, so when a famous and powerful agent comes along and promises to make all his dreams come true, he is eager to leap into her trap and gradually allows her completely change his identity and turn him into a prancing pop princess whose fame is built as much on his willingness to be used as a sex object as it is his singing. I loved the character and writing the story, and I had really thought it might be one of my most successful publications, but alas it was not to be! Now, maybe a few more people will take a chance and read it!
