Oops, sorry, everyone, for zoning out like that, for… four whole months??
No way. It can’t be that long… but date stamps don’t lie. Dammit.
Just a quick update, then: I’m down to literally the last pages of Wonderlust, and I’ve been doing a lot of work on Futa Centaur 3 at the same time. I’m hoping you’re really going to like the next one, as it takes the story much further. We meet Sharronne’s (extended) family, and find out a bunch more about centaurs, among a whole lot of other stuff.
Jennifer’s insatiable lust, accompanied with her regimented life, leads her to a life altering decision.
Some famous author, whose name escapes me now, once said, “I don’t have time to write short stories”.
While that might seem contradictory, there’s some hard truth in it: a (good) short story has to do a lot of lifting, in a very short time.
Character development, scene setting, plot – all the things a novel typically has whole chapters to get done, a short story has to achieve in a page or two, maybe.
This is what makes Sexcretary such a delight: Bella Bondai quickly and deftly sketches her characters, her protagonist especially. She also makes her characters unique. Jennifer has just enough quirks to make her human and relatable, without straying into the tired “manic pixie girlfriend” stuff.
The characters and the story are enjoyable, relatable, and above all, believable. The story is hot. And the writing is good.
This is Bella’s first story. Here’s looking forward to more.
Hi everyone – sorry for forgetting to post an update last week.
Winter has really hit hard, now, here in Tasmania. I’m sitting in my library with a duvet around my shoulders as I type.
I’m ploughing on with The Red Queen’s Gambit, the fourth and final installment of Wonderlust. After charging through the first four chapters, it’s been a bit bogged down, but… slow and steady, as they say.
Well, Romanced by the Futa Centaur is out and going very well – thank you to all who’ve been reading it, and especially to its first five-star reviewer on Amazon.
Right now, I’m chugging along on the fourth and final installment of Wonderlust, The Red Queen’s Gambit. I’m about half-way through the first draft. This one’s going considerably darker than the others.
*Unfortunately, Amazon are messing me around and still charging for my books which are free from other storefronts. If you’re a Kindle user, please download the following books free from a different storefront:
I’m exceedingly pleased to announce that “Romanced by the Futa Centaur” is finally available.
In the sequel to “Saved by the Futa Centaur”, Gennara and Sharronne are dragged from their romantic idyll by a chance discovery. They set out on a quest that takes them back to Gennara’s home city – A city under occupation from a war that drove her from her home when she was just a child.
What they find there will set both of them on a collision course with their pasts.
I tweeted the other day about whether or not to include something awkward-but-real in a sex scene in Futa Centaur 2 (ok, talking about realism in an erotic romance between a futanari centaur and a human might seem to be stretching the bounds of “realism” a bit, I admit). The ensuing conversation was interesting, and most responses were in the affirmative.
Because, the thing is: most sex scenes in erotica/romance aren’t particularly “realistic” (even when they don’t involve half-horse-half-human dick-girls!) – and there’s no reason they should. This is, after all, fantasy.
But, sometimes a bit of realism with sex and all it’s awkward, squishy bits can be fun. One of my favourite literary sex scenes is from Ben Elton’s This Other Eden:
