Thursday Morning Teaser

Yup, it's that time again. (and if that makes you think of Pinky and the Brain, that makes you awesome!) No, it's not time to take over the world. It's time for a new teaser!!! Chapter Seven is a lead in to the next stage in our heroes' relationship. It also focuses almost entirely on Alicia. It's not an entirely "nice" chapter, but it is what it is and I was happy with it.

I plan to submit the chapter over the weekend for an early week posting on Lit. I may submit it on Saturday as I'm not sure how they handle US holidays.

As for the rest of the story, Chapter Ten is still plodding along like a slow thing that plods slowly. Snails are passing it. But it's about half-way there and I hope to zoom through Chapter Eleven to make up for my snail-ishness. One can only hope.

If you need to catch up on the story, click on the tab above or follow THIS LINK. If you're all caught up and thinking just post the damn link already!!  then you can find the snippet HERE.

Oh, and a last thought. I had my loverly editor, Archangel_M, look over Innocent Deceptions and will be replacing the old version with the edited one over the next few days. It's another Phantom fanfic but much darker than Help Me Say Goodbye. Give it a few days and check out it's shiny new edited status or check it out now and groan at the errors lol

There's a Fine Line Ch06 is Live!

Things are moving right along on the story front...well, the posting side of it, that is. Chapter 10 is still being a bit of an ass but it'll get there. I hope. For now, Chapter Six of There's a Fine Line is available both on Literotica and the blog. You'll get to meet the fashion-forward Councilman, Devereux Armentage who's living proof that you can't judge a book by its cover (yeah, terrible cliche, I know). You'll also get another look at the bad guys and a better clue as to what they're capable of. Future chapters will get darker but I promise you that there is light at the end of the tunnel (woo hoo! another cliche!). I'm fairly certain it's not a train.

Wednesday Morning Teaser

Well, it's that time again! Time for a SNEAK PEAK into the next chapter of There's a Fine Line. In this chapter, Alicia confronts Blake about the attack, you get to meet a brand new yummy character - Devereux Armentage, and you get learn a bit more about our resident bad guys - Malphas and Andrealphus. The teaser, however, only covers part of the confrontation between our protagonists. As this is a rather short chapter, I didn't want to put a bunch into the teaser and make posting the chapter rather anticlimactic. Therefore, the teaser is shorter than usual even for me at less than 1000 words.

Also, you might have noticed a missing tab (or maybe you didn't, but it's still missing). I've removed the links to Laelah's Folly since it's become clear to me that I won't have time to work on it for a while. Between Fine Line and the upcoming NaNoWriMo, Laelah is getting pushed further and further into the background. I may revive it. I may not. At this point, I'm uncertain so I've removed the links until I decide which direction I'm going.

There's a Fine Line Ch 05 is Live!

After a failed ambush on Blake, information about Malphas starts to trickle in with Chapter 05 of There's a Fine Line (also found here on Literotica). Lysavar returns with some miniature helpers while aid comes from an unexpected source as the protagonists grow closer to discovering the truth of what Malphas is and what his plans are for Alicia. Meanwhile, she's trying to come to terms with her submissive and masochistic needs as well as her growing physical changes and abilities. Throw in an over-protective and dominating vampire mate and her life has been fully turned on its head. Things are going to start moving at a good clip from this point on.

Though I've said it before, I do want to reiterate that this story isn't all sunshine and butterflies. There are dark segments that some may find disturbing or outright unpleasant. This is deliberate and I won't apologize for that fact. It is mostly contained in a single chapter (nine) for now, but will probably bleed over into others as the story evolves. Remember: not all bad guys are misunderstood - some are pure evil.

New Bio Available - Devereux Armentage

This is a quickie as I'm supposed to be getting ready for the party. Here's another of the Councilmen (and thus a suspect) that you'll meet in There's a Fine Line.

Devereux Armentage is flamboyant, flashy, and sinfully hedonistic but is he a traitor to his race? You'll meet him in Chapter Six but here's a taste of this delectable vampire.

Wednesday Night Teaser

Tomorrow night I have a party to attend for the daughter of a very close friend. This family has accepted our version of crazy for over 20 years and are more like family than mere friends. Their daughter is graduating from college with an Engineering degree and so we're going to be there to celebrate in their kind of crazy. We'll watch her walk on Saturday.

Since I'll be spending most of tomorrow hunting for those last minute gag gifts I should have gotten this week, I figured I'd post the Teaser a mite early. The chapter should still get submitted on Sunday which will put it at a Tuesday/Wednesday posting date on Lit. In this chapter, the good guys finally start learning more about the bad guys' plans and you'll meet a few new folks from the Northeastern Council. You'll also see a return of the pixies, Sapphire and Opal though they don't appear in the teaser snippet. It runs just over 9k words; the teaser comes it at around 1400 words.

As for the story's progress, I've started chapter ten. I don't much like what I've got now and all of it could change but it has been started. lol Hopefully, inspiration will strike soon.

I posted the following on my Lit bio and I think it should be shared here as well. This is the proposed schedule for There's a Fine Line. None of the dates are set in stone, however. Also, please note the warning posted in paragraph two. I'm not a fan of story disclaimers but this one has some significantly dark aspects that might be unpleasant for many readers. The warnings are there for a reason!

There's a Fine Line - NonHuman category
This story will be posted biweekly (every two weeks) give or take a day here and there. Should I fully complete the story while there's still a significant amount left unposted, I *might* shift to a weekly schedule. Don't hold your breath.

Also, this story will contain many situations that readers may find disturbing. These include, but aren't limited to, aspects of BDSM (namely sadomasochism), graphic violence, demonology and the occult, sexual abuse, rape, ritualistic murder, and torture (physical and mental). Please check the story tags and heed any warnings if any of these things might trigger unpleasantness.
Any date other than for a Live Chapter is an approximation only based on current posting schedule and subject to change without notice or explanation.
