Ahh, I don’t know where to begin!! There is so much exciting happening. One of my most painful medical problems is slowly but surely resolving, I figured out I’m the perfect candidate for something amazing that involves something about myself that used to make me feel like a freak (in a bad way), I’ve also found some fantastic people to reach out to since I’ve become a part of Postmodern Woman, and…and some of my favorite books are being released very soon.
So, first, the boring medical and emotional stuff. Though I’m still in pain every day and having to pop pills like an addict just to keep myself operational, I am still filled with joy, wonder, and gratitude. There is so much beauty and love and sorrow. Pain and pleasure have never really been separate things for me; I’ve always tended to experience them at the same time. It is a bittersweet ecstasy I find myself experiencing more often than not. The day my boyfriend died is coming up on its one-year anniversary. And my tribute to him, living well, is coming to fruition. It’ll be a task I must continually work on for the rest of my life but I am delighted to do it in his memory. My living partner and child are still far away right now but one day soon we’ll all be together again. It hasn’t been easy but it has been so worth it. I would not have been able to get this same amazing care or these awesome opportunities if I had remained in the city I came from.
The thing that I’m a perfect candidate for…I’m going to be sneaky about it. Let’s just say there’s a big hint in the book The Realms. Aniella Brewster gets something near the end of the book that I only recently started looking into. Initially, I studied it for more background for the story. And then I grew more and more intrigued the more I studied. And then I found out I could totally do it and that I’m built perfectly for it. And I’m really fucking excited about that. So if you want to be a little pervy and see what that thing is, take a look at The Realms, which has been published and is now available for sale or on its way to all sales channels right now. It’s a kinky, funny, sexy adventure and you do get to peer deeper into the missing moments from the Allison Dutch series.
Postmodern Woman is transforming and growing. Louisa and I are brainstorming more ways to spread the word and include our community and supporters on our journey. I’ve had the honor of talking with and reaching out to some fantastic people and I cannot wait to see where this all goes. It’s a really beautiful and empowering thing. And I’ve discovered I actually like Twitter a bit better than Facebook. I literally never imagined I’d ever, ever use Twitter. Luckily, everything in life is transitory, shifting, and mutable.
Lastly, Ripley Santo, the shy Japanese boy, has his first book set for release next month. Unloved and Untamed is the first book in The Representative series. It’s definitely erotica, even though most of the works in The Cuil Effect Project contain sex of some kind (being demi with a high drive means finding healthy ways to channel that energy. So it ended up in stories. Shrug.). Anyway, the second book, Desired and Proper, will be released a month after that. You can already find some scenes from this series in the Cuil Peeks section, which I’ve divided up by series. Remember, you can always request scenes from any of my works. Just take a peek at the book guide and if it’s been written, I can add a scene or some juicy tidbit for it.
Whew! Okay, I think I’ve covered most everything. Oh, I’m also on Pinterest now. Still figuring out how that works and the purpose of it. We’ll see how that goes.
