Judging from the synopsis, I've already seen the movie. In fact, I have seven different versions, in three different languages, on my hard drive.

Smashwords is free, but you're fairly limited in what you can post in the synopsis.  I do urge you to read the free sample they offer.

As to said movie..err...mind posting a link?

I mean, strictly for research purposes for the sequel I'm working on...

Yeah, that's it...research.

You're too kind.

Seriously, writing this thing was easy...took about two weeks.  (Although it's based on an idea I've been kicking around since before there was an internet)  Editing it was a pain...ebook formatting wasn't too bad...choosing the cover art was fun...but marketing?

I have no clue what I'm doing :)

My only computer class involved punchcards, so I'm basically learning all this modern stuff as I go.

You start your pitch with "hot lesbian bondage" on Fark, I'd say you know EXACTLY what you're doing

/and the punch card thing?
//yeah... that was my first computer class

Oh, and...woohoo!  First greenlight!

And I only had to write a book to get it...

Not my cup of tea, but best of luck and I mean that sincerely.

My impressions from the sample:  the sexual slavery thing is utterly horrifying even as a concept because it happens all too often IRL.  In this case it also involves BDSM with an unwilling participant (no problem with willing participants engaging in BDSM) which is all the more horrifying...to the point where there can be no happy ending (the protagonist dies or the protagonist lives and has to live with what transpired irrespective of any kind of retribution she may enact).  I'm not the guy that believes that all stories need to have a happy endings but something like this would be a downer no matter how you slice it (no pun intended).

The other reason this thing got to me in a negative way is that I reminded me of the serial killer tandem of Leonard Lake/Charles Ng.  Not the best thing to be thinking about around the holidays.

You don't claim "hot lesbian bondage" without posting links to NSFW images.  This is Fark.  There are rules.

Sorry, but I want wider distribution for my novel...so, no nudity on the cover :(

Still, researching potential cover artists was a LOT of fun :)

K...one more try...had OM on ignore for some reason, took him off, yet the system keeps greying him out...weird.

Third time's the charm, hopefully.

To answer him, I want wider distribution for my book, so, no nudity on the cover :(

Yeah, it's a pretty strong cup of tea, but it's not really all that bleak at the end of the day.  The "dubious consent" approach goes WAY back in literature and film; think of Rhett carrying Scarlett up the stairs in Gone With The Wind.

All I can say is, my readers so far have liked it.  The opening's particularly rough, deliberately so;  then things get better ... and weirder...for Linda.  It's an exploration of dominance and submission, among other things.

Working on a gatling gun duel for the sequel, and the working subtitle for the third book in the series with these two characters is "Dykes with Nukes"...so, sort of a happy ending?

SOMEONE'S going out with a bang...

Heh, I had no idea who that was:

There's also some hot accounting action in my book, btw...

Sigh, still can't post anything to reply to Ogre; I'll try again tomorrow.

Happy Holidays, everyone.

One more thing...ALWAYS your employment contract carefully...Linda really shouldn't have skipped those ten pages of fine print in the middle...

What kind of plug?
 
2013-12-25 01:16:13 PM  
As a hetero woman, this kind of porn doesn't interest me at all. In fact, I'd rather be farking a hot dude then simply reading about fictional folks farking.

But hey, if this kind of stuff gets you off, so be it.

Soooo....what kind of porn DOES interest you?

I'm a noob author, so, I'm looking to expand my readership.

I've got the bare-bones outline of a fantasy trilogy in the works; dominant female, somewhat unwilling submissive-by-circumstances male...that float your boat?

(It's not going to be done, if at all, until the middle of 2014 at the earliest)

dprathbun: What kind of plug?


Heh.  It's actually less about fetishism and more about raw power.

Ie, no butt plugs.  At least not yet.

Well, just for you, Ogre:  (EXTREMELY NSFW, btw)

The rest of your headline past "featuring hot lesbian bondage " was not read by anyone.

Actually, considering the central story of Christianity is a guy getting killed and tortured, my stuff is kinda mild...

According to Google, you died in 1911
