Umbral Coil Chronicles I: Dusk

Exiled to the harsh wastes of the Zo’qeth desert by its mythical monarch Kassopeia – avatar of the Heavens given life to rule – two men will find comradery in one another that lasts into the deadly night, whence terrors stalk the sky.

Yet just as the sun sets each day, this is not the end of their tale, but a beginning to the night, of wandering another world where carnal encounters are not exempt as method of payment. What begins as the day of exile is but the first steps on a much longer journey than either could ever have imagined.

This is but the dusk to a perfect night.

News of my demise is greatly exaggerated. 

Now, I'll be the first to admit I've been really out of it the past months. It hasn't been the best of times - nothing too extreme like a death in the family or anything, but personally I haven't been in the best. Brief reminder that self-diagnosis is rarely a good idea. It wasn't lupus, and I wouldn't call it narcolepsy either, but it was sure something. I'm inclined to blame the winter cold coupled with the boiler trying to destroy itself again doing nothing to help matters.

That said, the support I've recieved throughout is really what keeps things going. It's said that it's not about how hard you can hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep going forward. I'm the only one that's really taken a hit from this whole ordeal, and I'm the one that's taking it and moving forward for the sake of all the awesome people who really make it possible.

So enough about me. Dusk, the first volume of the Umbral Coil Chronicles is a new storyline set in the monstrous deserts of Zo'qeth. While you might know the name from Deity of the Desert and Goddess of Sands, this is set in a different time period and locale to those. There's a lot I really want to say about it but can't since that really spoils how it ties in with other books and my vision of this world and its vast desert kingdom.

What I can say is that this is the first in a little experiment of mine with Kindle Unlimited - Amazon's relatively new look into 'subscription service'. So I think to myself, okay, normalising prices and royalty to a subscription service. Subscriptions tend to imply a constant beat of content, and it struck me that that's largely what I, and likely many others, aim to do with serial volume releases. You get that constant beat of what you could call premium subscription content 

So, with the majority of my audience congregating and utilising the Amazon storefront for its sheer force of content, search engine and rank quality, why don't I try to work with this new system and create a sort of subscription content in part for people with Kindle Unlimited. That's what I'm aiming for with the Umbral Coil Chronicles. To people without, it's available all the same as any other publication, if limited to Amazon, and down the road I'll be releasing the novel format of all volumes at a reduced cumulative price that tells the entire story. It may not all happen as fast as it could but I have several great stories to tie up first before I can really get into it - this is a sort of pilot run.

That said, this first volume is a lot about setting the stage and introducing some of the characters that will really make up this story, including the Pharaoh Kassopeia, said to be an avatar of the gods. It begins with an exile into expected death, but sometimes things don't work out how you expect, and sometimes, even in the underworld, things can take a wholly erotic turn.

The Lusty Dark Elven Maid II: Maid to Serve

Milenna Nightwhisper, the dark elven maid in a castle shrouded in darkness and intrigue alike, has no mind for the plots of nobility. Hers is a simple life of service, with simple desires that in time give way to greater urges. Having been confronted by a strange being that can mimic her appearance and allow her to disappear once her innocuous price is paid, Milenna is about to be sent on to fulfilling that desire. 

Down a winding secret passage between the walls of Castle Olvang, presenting herself to a crowd of men three times that of the nobility she is accustomed to, each and every one of the lusty maid's abilities are about to be put to the test in exactly the service she has longed to give.




There's a lot of things it's high time I get back into, and the Lusty Argonian Elven Maid is certainly one. Deciding when and what to do things is very much feeling around in the dark, but dark elves especially can see pretty well there and will eventually find their way along.

It actually still strikes me as funny how in what's essentially an intense gangbang of every hole with a seemingly endless crowd, just how much subtle life and back story comes to life along the way, just through the characters and races living at all. It may not be immediately obvious, but it's something I'm aware of as I went along, so it really helps build on things for the future.

One thing that the Lusty Elven Maid also does is run as a parallel to Huntsman, the next installment of coming soon. What it's allowing me to do is create a separate theme and style, but entwine their stories to a greater whole for those interested in both the more simple, straightforward hardcore erotic encounters Milenna goes through and the more heroic and romantic endeavours of the noblemen, knights and even Princess and Queen above them in Huntsman. 

The way they tie together isn't hugely important, so you won't be missing out on some big plot point, it just kind of fills in the little gaps of like where the doppel got the uniform from and what her place in the plots are, or in the next installment, how the situation has developed into where Milenna is taken.

But that's talking a little far ahead. Right now I'm looking to chase up my loose ends and get stories locked down and finished. I've found my footings and know what I'm doing, so going from here things are going to be much more interesting and consistent.

For now though, an excerpt of what this dark elven maid is getting herself into.

Soulflame III: The Invitation (Historic Lesbian Erotic Romance)

In the months following their audition to the stage, whilst change grips 17th century London, life for Annabel and Alice is good. Returning to privacy, the couple struggle to restrain the love of intimacy shared behind closed doors - until knocks come to those doors. 

Invited to a party of sorts in thanks for their audition, the young women will find themselves invited to the beginnings of an age of influence can be felt to this day, all the while secluding and enjoying the simple love and life that they share in the grand city of London.


I'll be the first to admit time has slipped by for writing this feature, and it's funny how that works. What was once yesterday is now last month, what feels like a recent, fond memory was ten years ago. What was once someone's current day is now ancient history, and the truths of it lost to the annals of time.

The passage of time and its affect on the world in its own subtle ways is a fascinating thing. I saw a picture on twitter recently that really drove it home. Looking at it, I can remember a time with all those appliances, and still grasp to justify that they still exist now and are likely more proficient than the smartphone that's sitting on my desk with probably more relative processing power than the first, albeit already unstable, PC I owned.

And of course they are still around and still have their uses, but what makes it interesting is you can't really pin a specific point when this technology really came around to what it is and stuck. Unless of course you're that sort of technophile that can recall productive history but the point is as months turn to years and those years sneak on, little technical things sneak into life at such an easily accessible way that you don't really think much of it.

This isn't really a new phenomenon. Back in the 17th century and before, not everyone was literate and romance novels just didn't exist. There was poetry and playwright, but things only really started developing into what would later be known of as a novel in the late 1660s, where Soulflame is set.

A lot of things happened in London around this time period, and this volume moves the timeframe forward some months to accommodate that. It also expanded to a point of where I couldn't really just wrap up on this volume because there's so much going on. 

So to really enjoy the richness of the period, and given that Soulflame is as much a story of the city as the two women within it, this volume covers the formal invitation women received to finally join the stage in employ. In a similar vein to other historic retellings for entertainment, I've taken some liberties with character and place, because it just makes it feel better, and who knows how far from the truth it really was?

What was once their present day, where things were slowly, subtly changing around them, is now several centuries history left to imagination and fancy. That's what I've really wanted to capture with the Soulflame series, a sense of things so inherently similar, yet still so different and distant.

Darkfallen: Demonic Slime (Futa, Slime Monster and Transformation, oh my!)

In the darkest reaches of the demonic prison that lays under Sarandin Isle, where demonic essence is at its greatest, the strangest of monsters can be found and formed. While the world above seeks to forget and seal those demons within their hold, none would even suspect to imagine the existence of the demonic slime in those depths.

Captured and held in one such darkest corner, one noble woman who'd come seeking fame and tall tales will learn first hand of a story none would believe, for whence she touches the dark matter dripping through cracks in the wall, it takes on a life and lust of its own, intent on bringing her unimaginable pleasure. The well endowed succubus drawn to the commotion will only aid in the slimes animate desire to mimic and please Victoria in this tale of those confined to the demonic hold.



Darkfallen: Demonic Slime makes the point of that basic entry-level D&D monsters need love, too. It also let me do something rather different to usual, which is one of the charms to my Darkfallen series, that I wanted to come back to once more.

While one of the charms of the Darkfallen series is an ability to just drop in at any place and not really need to know the other stories in sequence to appreciate them, I did start this one off with a little consideration to padding up the surrounding story, so it begins with giving you a pretty simple glimpse into how this volume's 'protagonist' came to be a part of the demonic prison, and how others have been winding up there in their stead.

Essentially, those beyond Sarandin Isle don't even believe the threats there are as real as they are, and ride out in hunting parties together for potential of fame and glory, which everyone loves. At least the people that wind up as the human captives for lovely stories of demonic corruption and sexual happenings.

This is one such story! And it's a little different. This time, I wanted to play around with a Slime monster, because they're squishy and can change their body entirely, which makes them a lot of fun for filling holes to the limit with and generally doing stuff you could never do in any other way, such as a tongue turning into a throat-fucking phallic tentacle or a succubus' demonic cock popping from between one participant's lips while they're kissing the other, clamping them into the kiss so that they can't help but have their mouth filled with cum.

Slimes are just fun like that! So I got a little carried away enjoying how this one played out in writing. 

Similarly, while I'm not really trying to make Kynthia from previous volumes a centrally key character that recurs constantly, I got thinking while I wrote. The previous two volumes have had futa, so people who've enjoyed those would enjoy more of it in this, and I could work it in easily enough. Practically, she empowered the Slime monster into acting as quickly as it did, and why not? 

It might not always be a thing that I include futa, but I figured for a third installment of a series where it works, it works!

Boys Will Do Boys (Gay Male Menage)

When Daniel came to the elusive fetish party held in a remote countryside mansion in the company of his Mistress, he never anticipated the night leading him into the company of a pretty, effeminate boy and his more dashing partner. Due to a twist of circumstance that see him ushered into their company, that's exactly what's happening. Having already crossdressed to look the part, Daniel will spend the night with the couple as ‘Danielle’, earning a taste of an entirely different world of pleasure and submission. 

What began as sensual temptation, teasing and a question in A Carnival of Phantasms develops now into an intense night of pleasure only be shared between boys.



I'll start off by saying this one was a bit tough to write, and contributed to May being a pretty slow and dry month for me, so I apologise for not being around much! June is shaping up to change that, but this was the first real debilitating slump I've ever felt, hopefully the only one. Being stubborn isn't always the answer, but I got through it.

It's been planned since the beginning, along with every other side story in the Carnival series, and there's one more to come, but sometimes it's just plain difficult. That's kind of the charm behind it, though. It's difficult because what A Carnival of Phantasms has allowed me to do is to bridge characters that wouldn't normally interact or even be in the same universe, and drop them into some really unique sexual encounters. 

In this case, that proved more of a challenge than I'd anticipated since it was just so different for the new boy being introduced to them. There's not really a purely dominant figure between the three either, unlike how Jessica could direct the scenes from her position as the top perfectly in 'Tied up in Good Company'. That said, once things get going, it stops being a problem and moves into a pretty unique night.

So we have a man, an androgynous, feminine trap - both from the Femboy's Trap series - and a crossdressing boy who's never thought of doing something like this with other guys before, from Shoes of Glass, who usually has a Mistress that enjoys crossdressing and dominating him. Everything's been spun around tonight, and it makes for a fun night of easing him into the acts and pleasures that come with the sort of clothing he's decided to put on, including the more experienced pair teaming up on him from both sides at once.

Excerpt that also explains how I handle realising I've used the same name for characters that, at the time, were never going to clash and be an issue follows the pagebreak:

For Love of a Succubus (Brother/Older Sister Incest)

Living with a succubus can be trying at the best of times, so when Theodore overhears the demonic woman shout his childhood nickname in the height of self-pleasure; their relationship is destined to propel past simpler, platonic affection for the love of a succubus. 

These lustful, blue-skinned demons come with many tricks and talents, however. After this sleepless night, nothing will be the same between this brother and sister.


First thing's first, the blue on the cover is because [this] is the sort of succubus I was going for. A slightly different sort from the ones I have in Daemonique. These are more 'traditional' in a way, the blueberry succubus butt is a tasty thing well known through ages.

Whenever I mention black (or any other colour) sclera, this is the sort of style I mean too. Sclera being the whites of the eye, having it black instead really gives a more exotic and demonic appeal to things, and again, very traditional succubus form. I can't complain.

But why succubus, why incest? It just came as a sort of story idea someone wanted to see, and after all the work Dhampyre took to put together, I wanted something nice and easy to work on, and it sounded fun. It also served as a sort of test, since due to how channels react to the idea of incest, I've been rather cautious and dubious about writing it at all. It's like asking to get taken down, and/or upset people. 

As is, I can't mention the incest factor anywhere that may be visible in public on most channels, which is stupid. I worry that 'what if someone really likes the idea of Succubus femdom with orgasm denial, but hates incest?' The best I can do is what I always do in putting content warnings in the front pages. This way, it's gotten out to every channel without a problem and won't be taken down, I can continue writing without fear and hopefully people who enjoy it can find it!

I went with Succubus - aside from being the idea - for a few fun reasons. As a lustful demon that practically lives on the energy of powerful emotions, predominantly lust and love, it seemed appropriate that she'd be a really lustful figure, and that her brother would be her biggest desire, with how close to her he was. To make it passable, I've had to edit one or two lines to seem 'pseudo-incest', but if you put that aside, Lizbeth's brother is very special and delicious to her exactly because he has their parents' heritage, while also being a man. There's just no one that could compare.

Throw in the chance to use some demonic magic, glowing eyes and a shadowy portal to introduce a short cameo, and it just adds that little bit of extra spice and life that makes it special and really fun to have written. Hopefully all the right people find and enjoy it!

Dhampyre: Blood Beginnings (Erotic High Fantasy)

In the peaceful town of Ironwood, a mysterious, darkly dressed woman answers the call for aid to watch over a farm after fears of a flying nightmare begin to circulate. Before long, this solemn traveller will be left with more questions than answers and a hunger that only one thing can satisfy. Seeking those answers will draw her deep into Ironwood Forest, entangling her at the mercy of monsters and plots she cannot even begin to understand.

The lives of common folk and the common monsters that live in peace together will change in her wake, but hers is a story in its blood beginnings. Hers is the path of a vampire's half-bred child; the Dhampyre.


The link section looks sparse in this case because this is infact an Amazon exclusive! That means readers with Amazon Prime can 'borrow' the book for free, and I have a number of tools to play around with.

Such as making it FREE as a short promotional event from the 20th to 21st!

This title is going to be one of my more interesting little projects, and the use of Amazon's Select feature is one instance of exactly how. In more interesting terms, contrary to the usual method of releasing serial volumes and gauging interest through time, Dhampyre will be a routine release of novella format length books with accompanying paperback on release, covering a full arc with several erotic scenes to drive the journey along.

What this does is give me the best of all worlds, giving me a place to write up the initial shorter chapter pieces one by one on a more-or-less weekly basis, get thoughts and feedback on the progression of those, then come back later and edit them all a second time to put into a chaptered novel book format where I can make full use of chapter breaks to shift the time, scene, character focus and even theme in a way that standard serial releases don't really allow.

So I'm really excited about this, but what's it all about? Fans of my other high fantasy titles - Daemonique, Deity of the Desert and Huntsman imparticular - will get some similar vibes from some of the content, and that's because it's set in the same world. There's strong connection to the Northlands and the history of the world that is only being teased out in whispers, so far, as well as using the same religious setting as in Daemonique. The town of Ironwood is far inland from Kinsport, where Daemonique's setting has moved to, and far south of the region's capital, but it is held under the same faith. 

This volume really sets up and gets you comfortable with the world and its inhabitants. There are a lot of monstrous types here, a lot of twisted creatures, spirits of nature and some more traditional types like the Vampire and the main travelling protagonist - the Dhampir, child of a Vampire and Human. Many of these monsters will be involved in wholly erotic encounters. 

Fans of my similar work and Monster Girls at large will find scenes including vampiric biting, Holstaurus cow girls, Alraune plant girl and Dryad wood spirit, a Manticore and more. These rich, varied monster types are a real driving force behind the setting,so their involvement and interactions with the girl who balances between worlds of monster and human will only get more intense from here on.
