We tell ourselves stories

We do. We tell our lives through stories. The problem is that stories wrap up. Their arcs complete. They come to endings. Very neat, tidy, and satisfying endings, even. But so long as we're living them, our lives don't. (And when they do end, well, we no longer need to worry about them, do we?) So all our stories are a little bit wrong.

My therapist wanted me to write a story. She seems kind of fascinated by how much I write and the way I write. But we were talking about this, that in the stories I've written that were on some level about my problems, in those stories the problems get solved in some way, where my real problems often don't. What if, she said, what if you were to face that, and rather than trying to solve the problems, what if you were to work on accepting the fact that you won't, and can't, and will always struggle with those problems? I told her that maybe I should write a different story, then, a story that's about accepting that there's no end, that the struggle goes on.

So I did.

It's also a sequel to Less Than, which some people here seemed to like. :3

Sheik and Link shared a pair of brief kisses. But what comes after? With Link and Zelda--and therefore Sheik--trapped in an endless cycle of conflict and rebirth, must destiny play out exactly as it always has, or can they defy destiny and fight together?

P.S. I will be posting another story later today. The thing about me and writing is I do a lot of it. I feel sometimes like asking people to read my writing is like asking people to drink from the firehose. There's too much, it comes out too fast, and I've yet to encounter anybody who could keep up. (Or who wanted to/had the time to spare to, at least.) Sorry, I guess? Read this if you like/have the time, read the thing I'll be posting in a little bit if you like/have the time/want to buy it, that one's one of the published-for-sale ones. I wish everyone had more hours in the day and could read all they like. I'd have more readers, then. :3

Smut for sale!

The old world has ended, technology no longer works, and everything is falling apart. Yet in the midst of this chaos a new world is beginning, a world full of strange and magical beings, including vampires, and were-creatures.

Thomas is learning to deal with life as a vampire, though he isn't entire happy about it. But when the first full moon after the apocalypse arrives, it turns out that Thomas isn't the only one whose nature has been profoundly changed...

Storm Cat, the third and final (for now, at least) book in my set of vampire/were-creature post-apocalyptic porn stories is out! On Smashwords, anyway. Link to Amazon to follow once they finish processing it, but I will be honest, Amazon kinda is obnoxious to work with. And Smashwords has a kindle-compatible e-book format available, so even if you use Kindle you can still buy it there. Also, Smashwords lets me easily change prices, so I have put the previous two books up for sale! You can get all three for $3.97 total. :3

Storm Cat for sale on Smashwords. <--the handy link to the other two is right at that page, also!
