One of the Best Feelings in the World

My print copies of Succubus Summoning 101 arrived last week. To be honest I'd been biting my knuckles in worry over how the cover would turn out. The design looked great on computer screen, but often What You See Is Not Always What You Get with these things. Thankfully, they turned out great.

It’s a narcissistic, egomaniac thing, but I like having a couple of print copies for the shelf. Being an author has always been a lifetime ambition, so actually holding the print proof of that is one of the best feelings in the world.

If you want your own dead-tree form of Succubus Summoning 101, you can get it through eXcessica or on Amazon. Sorry about the price. That’s POD (Print-on-Demand) for you. Still, it’s available for anyone wanting a physical version.

Succubus Summoning 201
is still in progress. I’ve written a short story featuring Phil, Cέrμləa and another summoning mishap to fill in the gap while I get 201 back up to speed again. Look out for it here sometime next week…


  1. Those things look _belting_! It must be a great feeling to accidentally write a novel.

    Out of curiosity: I get the impression that SS was never meant to get as big as it has. Have you ever wished you could reboot the series and start things off differently?

    1. It was a short story that grew some legs and kept going. Phil proved surprisingly resistant to the usual death-by-sex.

      I think the only thing I might consider rebooting is the head wings, and that's only because I keep forgetting to add them to later descriptions!

      I had to stop using the serial approach for SS 201 as I was worried I would end up writing myself into a corner. I think that was a mistake as I lost a lot of momentum in the writing.
