More Avatar!

Yup, Chapter 27 is up! Or at least, I’ve submitted it to the site, so I’m sure Laz will have it up soon enough. That guy’s just friggin’ amazing. Speaking of amazing, so is my editor. Great guy, KB, and I really appreciate working with him, or rather, him agreeing to work with me.

Speaking of work, I have good news and bad news.

The good news:
The shitty company I work for has found a way to continue my employment.
The bad news:
See above.

Yeah, it’s cheesy, but what they hell, it’s my blog. Don’t get me wrong; continued employment is good. I just have no intention of stopping my regular job search. Every time I turn around this fucking place gets worse in some small (or not so small) way. But I’m still employed. For now. And that’s good.

Now, about that more Avatar stuff. Can you believe I’ve started messing about with another side story? I doubt this one will be very long — perhaps five chapters or so. However, there is the potential for something of a spin off. We’ll see. I’m hungry to finish Avatar Establishment, because I’m really itching to write some stories in the Conflict Saga. I started one of those as well, and I think it’s gonna be kick ass. I’d start posting it, but um… it’s spoiler laden, and I think folks might be a little annoyed.

Also, I’d like to point you to the following story by MWTB. I like all his stuff, but I’m really liking his latest story called Growing Up a Master. Good sex. Good concept. Good writing. What more could you ask for?

Finally, something I found mildly amusing and somewhat depressing happened yesterday. I was looking online for something, and came across a story by Angela Knight. Now, I don’t usually slam other authors — unless they are pros. This woman has a ton of soft core porn out, and I gotta tell ya, it’s… not so great. The concept for one of her universes is mildly interesting, but honesty, I think Avatar’s better. Of course, she’s published and I’m not, so perhaps Avatar isn’t better. That was the depressing part.

I gotta find some way to get my erotica published, cuz it’s gonna be another century before I get around to writing actual SciFi. Why the hell wasn’t I born rich? Then I’d have more time to write.

    Chapter 27
    Great as usual. It’s still a little like just getting one potato chip at a time though.
    You still haven’t explained (or at least I haven’t seen it) about Naked at School and this version of Cindy.

      Re: Chapter 27
      Well… the Naked in School thing. Yeah. I’ve given hints about it, and it’s becoming more clear with every chapter. So if you haven’t figured it out yet, it should become obvious. Eventually.

    Well:
    1) Continued employment can be bittersweet, can’t it? My sympathies, I’ve been there. Eventually, I got a “Sorry, but we can no longer use your services” letter, and found a job which I still enjoy, 20 odd years later.
    2) More Avatar stuff is always good! I loved this chapter, and the thought of another side-story is linda cool, too. Whatever, whenever, you’re assured of a reader.
    3) I’ve already found MWTB – you’re right, he’s very, very good. I loved some of his short stuff, and his longer stories are sustained eroticism of a high order.
    4) I’ve read published authors who are much worse than you, or Nick, or Frank, or… many of the people who I regularly read on SOL or ASSTR or LitE in fact. There seems to be a dice-toss in there somewhere to determine who gets lucky.

      I haven’t given up looking for a job somewhere else. But, with all that has gone on in these last months, I sort of need a break.
      I’m not sure if the next side story will be posted as such, or just pushed into the main story. I’m leaning toward posting as a side story, but I haven’t finished it yet, so who knows?
      His latest was VERY well done, and I’m hoping for a follow on.
      Well, I just need to get my lazy ass in gear and finish something that the main stream folks migth wanna read. Cuz I can’t imagine that Avatar would have a large appeal to folks not into BDSM.

        I don’t see Avatar as a BDSM novel. More like a SciFi /Fantasy with a lot of erotica and a little BDSM. Never been in a sex shop in the USA, but in Europe, most of the literature you find in there IS BDSM.

      • Dark Pen says:

        Wait, you don’t see Avatar as a BDSM novel? But… the entire thing is pretty much one long sex scene. Well, at least book one is. But still… I see it as lot’s of BDSM with a bit of SciFi thrown in.
        I’ve never been in a sex shop in Europe… but I’m looking forward to it 🙂

    If you want to self-publish, try lulu.com. You won’t be in bookstores, but at least people can buy your work in print form.

      Re: LuLu
      Not sure I want to do the self publish thing. Plus, I’m not sure there’s much of a market for Avatar in print. But, I do appreaciate the link, since I might end up having to do some kind of self publish for my main stream writing. If I can ever stop writing smut…
