I've just edited an item in my portfolio:
 To Swindle a Succubus  (18+)
A nerdy boy tricks a succubus into becoming his girlfriend for eternity.
I've decided to suspend my previous "professional vibe" for my portfolio until my book is ready to be published. So until then, some of my old items are once again public. However, the others that nobody really seemed interested in have been deleted.
Don't worry too much.
I've added a new item to my portfolio:
 Shillberg Suites  (13+)
Follow the residents of a boardinghouse full of monsters and their human landlord.
Might take a look.
Hey everybody. So, some of you might know I am currently working on my very first book that I intend to physically publish. It has been an on and off thing for the last few years, and to be honest, I haven't gotten very far with it, mainly due to getting new ideas for other works when I'm in the middle of something else, and various real life distractions.

I've decided that it's about time I get serious about this, and get rid of the stuff that's putting me off track. Therefore, I am going to use this account for more professional purposes, as well as delete my lesser works. However, I feel a certain attachment to my interactive stories, especially the more popular ones, so if anyone is willing to take those off my hands, please let me know, and I will transfer them. I'm probably not going to do anymore adds to interactive stories from now on also, choosing to focus on my personal works.
Hey, man. I'm willing to take the Beastly Babysitter interactives off your hands if you haven't already given them to someone. It'd be a shame to see a premise like that go to waste.

Cheers, mate.

A low level politician sells his soul to become president.

In the distant future, godlike beings rule humanity, but are they what they seem?
I've added a new item to my portfolio:
 Perdition University  (13+)
You think your school is hell? Well, here, that's literally the case.
I'm going to try reposting some old stories from before, in an attempt to get some exposure for my works.
Big announcement, everybody!

In one week from today, it will be my birthday. So, I was thinking, why not have a little contest with my followers just for fun? Who ever makes the best addition to any of my interactives before May 8th, will win a prize of gift points from me.

1st prize - 50,000 GP
2nd prize - 20,000 GP
3rd prize - 10,000 GP

Each addition must follow the rules of said interactive, and must be a minimum of five paragraphs. Short adds and option chapters do not count. Hope to see plenty of entries from you!
We'll see.
Sad news, folks. A couple weeks ago, my grandmother passed away from a stroke. We had her funeral on Friday, we buried her with my grandpa. She was a devout catholic, and the sweetest, kindest lady you could ever hope to meet. She wasn't a nun, but she might as well have been.

At her viewing, I volunteered to say a few words about her to the family. I told them about a time not too long before her passing, when I said to her that when the time came for her to be reunited with grandpa, she should be canonized as the newest saint in the catholic religion, and she simply smiled and said thank you. If we're being honest, that's probably going to happen, but everyone in my family knows, and I'm sure you would agree if you has known her, it should.
Been there buddy.
To all my followers who enjoy reading about their favorite characters battling each other for supremacy, I just started a whole new series you might enjoy! You even get to vote for the winner! Feel free to do so, and suggest future battles in the official forum, linked to the main hub.

I'm in a bit of a dilemma, guys. Another member of this site, who has made several additions to my interactive stories in the past, is running out of time for his upgraded membership, and asked if I could send him about five hundred thousand gift points, about fifty dollars worth, so he can extend it.

That might not seem like a whole lot to some people, but I don't work very many hours at my job, and thus don't get paid a whole lot. He offered to add to my interactives whenever I ask for a whole year if I do him this favor. It's a tempting offer, and I know it's almost Christmas, season of giving and all that, but still, fifty dollars is a lot to me. What do you guys think I should do?
I'll admit that I asked for some a little while ago - and some people were more than generous - although I didn't ask for the full amount and admitted to having a backup-plan (income tax returns).

As is, I wouldn't give anyone the full amount, as I might need that myself. Also, as previously mentioned, RAOK does help out there.

Personally, the guy might want to open a Savings Account to save up the $50.

There are many ways for an active member on the site to save up enough gift points to pay for an upgraded membership. Asking for help toward a membership can be one of those options, but asking one person for the whole amount is too much.

Tell the member to check out:

Big news everyone! I am currently working on my most ambitious interactive story yet. If you like movies, games, or just stories in general like The Witcher, Diablo, Elder Scrolls or Lord of the Rings, then this should be right up your alley!

Basically it will be sort of be like an old school RPG, where you select your gender, race and profession, before choosing a character in the world and following their adventures. I'll keep the major details a secret for now, but I'm sure my followers will enjoy it!

It's a work in progress, and I don't know when it will be ready, but just something you guys can look forward to. That's all for now!
