New Book: Denial

 

I had so much fun writing Denial!  In this story, the main character, Taylor, watches as her boss slowly turns into a woman.  But, he remains in complete and total denial, refuses to accept that he is experiencing a sex change and trying to play the bro despite his wide, birthing hips and perfect, soft skin.

Meanwhile, as he changes, Taylor finds herself obsessing over the young woman he is becoming.  What’s happening to her, she wonders, as the budding young she bro her boss is becoming lights her up like she’s never been lit in her life?

This is a stand alone story that takes place in the SheVirus universe, which I have previously depicted in my Deviant Art pages.  It’s a world where, you guessed it, a virus spread which rewrites male DNA, turning the men who catch it into gorgeous, fertile young women.  This story takes place in the early days of the virus, when it is just starting to spread and most people don’t even think it’s real.

If you liked unwilling changes, humiliation and crazy sex, you will probably dig this story!

Let Me Bring Your Dreams To Life!

youwebcover

Hey, folks.  I want to bring your dreams to life!  Seriously.  I have recently had the pleasure of creating three different stories on commission, and I have enjoyed the experience so much that I have decided to make commissioned stories a regular part of my writing practice.

Do you have certain dreams or fantasies you would love to see brought to life in the form of a short story or novella?  A plot you would love to see explored? Please allow me!

Here’s how it would work.  You would sketch out the plot and characters as well as the preferred length.  This can be as detailed or as abstract as you prefer.  One of my collaborators wrote down a plot point by plot point synopsis with very specific scene requests.  Another just offered a couple sentences.  Both projects were a blast and turned out great!

Once I understand what you are looking for, I would then write out the story and send it to you for your thoughts, feedback and/or approval.  I would then revise as necessary based on any additional ideas or requests you have, and then you would have your story.

Right now, I would charge 5 cents a word and request the rights to distribute the story with you sharing in the author credit.  If you prefer to remain anonymous or would like a story just for your private enjoyment, we can work that out as well.

Now, my specialty is, of course, stories exploring gender identity in which characters experience sex-changes of various kinds. I am only interested right in writing stories that fall into the TG or genderfluid category.  I do have some things I am reluctant or unwilling to write about in this realm, but if you have any thoughts or ideas message me.  I will entertain your pitch without judgement.  I will only decline story ideas if I feel I am not going to be able to enthusiastically and passionately bring your vision to life!

Hope to hear from you! redbankmick@aol.com

Game of Gowns

Cover Concept 1

Cover Concept 2

cvrmaybe2
I have a new book underway, and I am very much obsessed with it to the point that I am dreaming about the characters and their lives, waking up with scenes in my mind that seem to have written themselves in the night.

As the title to this post suggests, the new stories owe something to Game of Thrones, specifically a desire to portray a TG story set in a more brutal fantasy world.  It begins with our hero, the rightful heir to the throne, betrayed, transformed into a woman and then given as bride to a brutal warlord.  Our hero, now given the name Delicatha, finds himself trapped in a woman’s body and a woman’s life with a stone age husband who considers him good primarily for providing sexual pleasure on demand.

Meanwhile, the usurpers who stole his throne, emboldened by their success and their new power begin to establish a matriarchy in his kingdom, driving rivals to begin plotting to overthrow these dangerous females who would upset the “proper” order of things.  Soon, boys will be girls and girls will be boys, and the lines between the sexes blur as all the kingdom is forced to play the Game of Gowns!

One thing that happens when I write is I will begin to also create artwork, and above you will see two rough ideas for covers I have been working on.  Both tell stories that will echo one of the primary themes explored in this novel: men who find themselves the conquests of other men, subjected and turned into female sex-objects.  I may choose one of these or neither, and any feedback would be great.  In any case, this will be a much more slutty book than I have written lately– or ever– but the sex will all serve to explore characters and identity.  How would a warrior and a man used to not just ruling other men but brutally killing them in armed combat react to find himself small, helpless, reduced to serving as the wife of another?

How does a man get power when all he has is his pretty smile?

I expect to have this one out by the end of the month, so hopefully one or two of you will read it and get as much pleasure out of the experience as I am getting out of writing it!

Do you want muscle?

esther

So, I found myself considering a proposal to create something new: an illustrated TG story.

SteeleBlazer, proprietor of the fantastic Mighty Female Muscle Comix website, who also maintains an excellent site on Deviant Art, started it off with an email proposing that we collaborate.  He wanted us to create a story together, working out the details of the plot and characters, and he would offer suggestions and tweaks and edits, then add pictures.  I thought– hell no.

My reaction had nothing to do with SteeleBlazer.  I had a previous unpleasant experience with a potential collaborator that made me very reluctant to even think about working with someone.

Besides, I enjoyed the autonomy writing and self-publishing my books gave me. I wrote what I wanted, how I wanted, when I wanted.  Why change that?

And yet, the idea intrigued me, and I thought – maybe it is time?  Maybe I should give this another chance?  So I sent an email, and the two of us laid out some things and got some clarity established as to how this project would work.  Between my previous unpleasant experience and my discussions with SteeleBlazer I had read Twyla Tharp’s book about collaboration, and I had realized that for it to work there needed to be clear understanding of how we would work together before either of us committed.  We established that, and then….

Disaster! The worst experience of my life!

Not really!  Actually, I have had one of the best creative experiences of my life, and I am so happy we worked together and created a really special project which I think is going to be called Lift Like A Girl.

It takes place in a small town in Iowa, and follows the lives of some typical high-school kids as something strange begins to happen:  the girls all start to get really big and strong, while the boys struggle to maintain muscle and find themselves getting smaller.

For both SteeleBlazer and I, the story is very much about what happens to the minds of the characters as their bodies change, and the ways it impacts how characters see themselves and interact with others as males become the weaker sex.  It explores how high-school dynamics might change in such a world, and it was loads of fun to create!  We look at the changes from a variety of perspectives.  Esther, seen above, is a mousy intellectual nerd with a crush on a star athlete.  Mallory is a pretty, popular girl who is all about fashion and trends:

mallory

And Kat is a gloomy goth-chick:

We also see the world through the eyes of Derek, the stud jock Alpha Male of the school and Jack, a member of the swim team.

This story is a true collaboration, and I feel a seamless melding of our respective visions to create something that is certainly different from anything I have written before in a variety of sometimes nuanced ways.  I don’t want to give away too much away, but I had so much fun writing this, and I have to say that even days after completing the story I can’t stop thinking about these characters as they pop up in my dreams, while I am driving, eating… all the time!

It’ll be available soon!

 

LULU!!!!

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:

princesskinglulu

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.

voicesAMAZON

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?

krystalfirstsingle

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!

New Book

promo

 

This time, I want to tell the story of a gender swap from a woman’s perspective.

That’s the idea I came up with to get started on my newest ebook.  I have written a lot of genderfluid books in the past couple years– more than 1000 pages worth, and I am always striving to find ways to challenge myself to write something different from what I’ve done before.

This time, I decided to do a first person account of a husband and wife who switch genders all told from the first person perspective of the wife as her husband gradually turns into a gorgeous little female and she turns into a tall, muscular male.

I think it will be a lot of fun as most of my books have always focused on the male experience of being swapped into a female body or gradually changed into a woman.   This time, I will focus just as much on how the woman feels about her own transformation as well as the conflict she feels as the big, strong man she married blossoms breasts and becomes smaller, weaker and more vulnerable, now looking to her for protection.

Once I had the idea for the perspective, other parts just started to occur to me.  I dreamed of the couple trapped on a desert island, and once that happened I knew I would have to write a classic TG story with my own twists and turns.  I began to see scenes from the story, including what will likely be the opening scene.  It’s all coming to me now as I work, drive, sleep, and so now the story has to be written because I know that until I do write it I won’t be able to stop thinking about it.

I haven’t seen the end yet, but I am excited and curious to see where these characters take me.  I am excited for them, to see what they discover about themselves and how they deal with their changing bodies and challenging new environment.  It will be fun.  It always is, and the biggest challenge for me now is to just let the characters and the story take me where they want to go, to resist the urge to make it happen in a different way than what has to happen.

Here I am.  At the start.  Let’s see where we go!

 

He, She and TG

 

 

       Nubia lifted the bottle higher, and some of the dark red wine spilled from the corners of Ambrose mouth and dripped onto his breasts. He swallowed and burst into giggles, falling onto his back again, staring up at the spinning ceiling.  Nubia licked the wine off his soft breasts, then wiped them with the corner of the sheets they lay upon, then looking down at Ambrose’ pretty face, his cloudy, drunken eyes, she said, “Opium!”

            “No,”  Ambrose said.  “I can’t even sit up right now…”

            But then Nubia was sitting him up, and she took a toke of opium and then covered his lips with her own, blowing the smoke into his mouth.  Ambrose inhaled, the world had gone bleary, and he slurred, “I love you so much. By the gods just take me.  Take me now.”

            “Let’s play a game,”  Nubia said, stroking his soft cheek.  “Something different.”  She draped her silken top over his breasts, the top she wore as his slave girl.

            “No,”  Ambrose said, his voice rising into a girlish whine.  “Let’s just make looooove!”

            “For me.  Wear this.  Come on now.”

            “Oh, fine then.  Just hurry.”  Nubia fitted the little silk top over her master’s breasts, tying to strings behind his slender neck, then the panties, the pantaloons, and finally the glittering golden torque, which she locked into place with a clinking of metal. 

            She put her finger under Ambrose’ chin and tilted his head back.  “You are my slave girl now.”

            “Is that what turns you on?”  Ambrose said, barely aware of himself, of what he was doing or saying.  “Do you want me to be your slave girl?”

            “Yes.”

            Ambrose giggled.  Knelt back on his heels, his legs together, shoulders back, breasts out, and then in a tiny little voice he said, “How can I please you master?”

            “Good,” Nubia said.  “Yes.  Very good.  Show me that pretty smile.”

            Ambrose smiled. 

            “Get on your hands and knees.”

From my book, Metanoia

I have generally chosen to keep using my character’s original gender pronouns when writing, even after the character has become fully gender changed in body and even sometimes in mind.  I will often alternate them in a passage to represent the character’s shifting sense of self, in a scene like this:

Paul smiled as he slipped out of his bra, letting his breasts sway free.  His wife, Jane, looked at him, letting her eyes drop from his face to his breasts, and Paul felt his cheeks flush as he glanced down bashfully.  “You’re such a beautiful girl,”  Jane said in her deep, husky voice.   Paul giggled.  He felt so sexy.  Jane lifted his chin and kissed him, then pushed him onto his back and slid her hand down his belly, to the slit between his legs.

Paul gasped as she felt her wife’s fingers slip into her vagina; she arched her back and ran his fingers through his thick, curly hair while Jane put his mouth on one of her nipples and began to suck, and Paul knew he was his wife’s woman now, and he always would be.

One reason I started to keep the pronouns is because I often felt when I read longer works of TG fiction– or saw some movies– that it would often become irrelevant that the characters was gender swapped.  I would essentially forget I was reading or watching a story about a man trapped in a woman’s body.  Especially in cases where the character adjusts, it would usually seem more and more that I was not watching a movie about a man who was turned into a woman at all, but just a movie where an actress started off doing a poor impression of a man and then started to just be herself.

In books, scenes that often seemed very charged for me as a fan of TG fiction when written with male pronouns would become boring with body consistent pronouns, and more so still if the name was also changed.

Paul grabbed his purse and slipped it over his shoulder, pausing to check his make-up

versus

Paulina grabbed her purse and slipped it over her shoulder, pausing to check her make-up

For me, the first sentence is fun as I feel the conflict is embedded in the writing via the use of the male pronouns, whereas the second I will read as just a sentence, or more so a sentence, especially if the pronouns and names switched 100 pages ago.

The essence of drama is conflict, and I want to keep my characters in conflict right up until the very end, where I often will completely switch the pronouns if I want my character to happily accept his new gender.

One of the first scenes I remember reading where this was done to incredible effect was in the first book in the Hot Bloods anthology series.  I can’t seem to find my copy, but the story was by Graham Masterson, and in it the main character wakes up in the body of a super hot woman he has been having an affair with, and when he explores his new body we get a line like, “He reached down and put his hands on his vulva, and then gingerly slipped a finger into his vagina.”

I remember finding that line incredibly impactful in the mixing of male gender words with female anatomy, and I have been drawn to those kinds of sex-scenes ever since.

Of course, we can all do what we want, and I am not trying to tell anyone else how to write. I just personally chose to keep using male or female pronouns even after characters switch for the reasons listed above.  I also tend to write stories about people who are not TG who get switched, so it makes sense in my stories that there is a conflict, whereas many people write stories of discovery where the character is female to begin with but just has the wrong body.

Kitty Pride and Professor (really) X (Spoilers!)

skeevy

So, do you remember the time Professor X tried to do it with the teen-age Kitty Pride, but it wasn’t Kitty Pride but actually Baron Karza, the supreme enemy of the Micronauts?

The subplot, featured in the 4 issue x-Men and the Micronauts mini-series, flirted with Sub/Dom TG.    Baron Karza, trapped in the body of a female and dressed like a slave girl, on his back in such a vulnerable position, his arch-enemy, dominant, ready to make his move.  In the book, realizing his enemy intends to have sex with him, Karza tries desperately to distract his enemy, to keep him busy, because Karza feels physically helpess and unable to defend himself.

To understand the dynamic Chris Claremont was playing with, understand that Baron Karza was the Darth Vader of the micro-verse, the ultimate bad guy.  Like Vader, he always wore armor and a helemt, a cold, distant figure, inscrutable.  He ruled over others, had an near-omnipotence in his realm, and could even take on the form of a centaur, cementing his status as an emblem of masculinity and virility..

baronkarzamv12

So, for him to find himself trapped in the body of a girl, helpless and in the clutches of a predatory male was as close to a total reversal as could be imagined.

The added level of kind of strange pervyness was that the villain is actually Professor Xavier, and, of course, Kitty Pride was one of his students.  The story line didn’t really delve too much into this, and there were never any ramifications beyond the mini-series, but it was a very interesting, human and flawed Xavier that emerged.

A third little bonus for me was the fact that I had owned many micronauts as a kid and loved them, so now one of my favorite toys had merged with TG fiction, and I was in heaven.

In any case, these kinds of role-changes are very interesting to me.  Karza very quickly chose to play the helpless maiden, seeking to flatter and cajole and manipulate the man who wanted to have sex with him, all his usual shouting and bravado gone.  Yet, he was still Karza, and he was just waiting for the chance to try and kill his enemy.

How much of femininity is simply practicality?  Would any intelligent man, placed in Karza’s situation, resort to passive, feminine strategies?  Would many women, if they were bigger and stronger than the men in their lives, take on the dominant role because they could?

These are the questions I feel we can explore in genderfluid fiction, readily and overtly.  Of course, Chris Clarement, author of the series, didn’t have the freedom to pursue the story line very far or very deep.  The most he could do was play at the surfaces.   But that doesn’t mean, and I am sure others, haven’t written fan fiction in which Baron Karza remains a teen-age girl, and where he comes to find the pleasure in surrender.
