Works in Progress.

 While it may have been some months since I actually published the last story, and I am not as of yet that close to publishing a new one, I am actually working on new stories. Quite a few of them. Some of them have been in the hopper for a long time, going back 10 years or more, some are much newer. None are what you would call complete, but there are a few that  can at least see the finish line in the distance.

 Not surprisingly most of the stories are erotic swords and sorcery tales, and all of them are set in the same world as The Spellsword and The Halfling’s Lust. That setting, a land called Makeover, was designed to be pretty flexible and allow for a lot of different kinds of stories. But more on that later.

Subgenre: swashbuckling and espionage

In the story, it’s been ten years since Tanilen has seen Rhiannon, his first love, and the bard-turned-spy soon finds himself embroiled in a plot involving secret societies, slavers, and Kingdom Inquisitors. His first love is at the center of all the plots, but is she a victim, or the puppetmaster? The first two acts are done, and it needs at least one more to complete the tale. There is a fourth act that has emerged recently, but I have not decided if it is the concluding entry to this story, or the opening act of a new one. Quippy dialogue, romance, some sly humor, adventure, and little hints of bdsm will be the main themes of this story.
