Again sorry for the high price. That's the downside to Print on Demand.
I'll also repeat the same warning from the ebook version. The last story will be outside some people's comfort zone. If you thought "The High-School Sweetheart Removal Agency" was a little too dark, treat "Nazi vs. Succubus" as a bonus story for extreme horror fans and give it a wide berth. The rest should be the usual sexy succubus stuff. Apart from the skinless people having sex . . . and the giant octopus queen . . . and the weird slug thing summoned up from the bowels of hell . . . and the . . . Okay, so usual might not have been the right word.
Anyway, apologies for making print fans wait a little longer for this one. I'll try to make sure both ebook and print version come out simultaneously for the next one (which should be here next month if I pull my finger out).
Now I've got to go and order my own author copies for the Shelf That Must Never Be Seen By Others.

My print copies finally wound their way to my remote abode. I always look forward to seeing the finished book. (and that the covers are the right colour, in the right place and not wrong in the many ways printing can sometimes go wrong).
It's a little chunkier than my other collections (although obviously slimline in relation to the average George R. R. Martin epic). I ran out of the short short stories and got too carried away writing all the sex in the new ones.
You can pick up a copy of your own from Amazon here, or here if you live in the UK. One day it would be nice to have a mass-market paperback printing to make the price a little more acceptable, but that would mean I'd have to write something more mainstream and who'd want to do a boring thing like that . . . ;)

I also have a few new stories coming out in eXcessica's fundraising anthologies.
The first, Colors, is out now.
It's an anthology of interracial erotica. I submitted a story about two lovers skinning each other and having sex.
Sometimes I wonder why the good folks of eXcessica put up with me...
The next is back to more familiar territory for me: an anthology of erotic horror tales to chill the bones in time for Halloween.
My story for that one is titled "Crabs" and I believe the anthology will be available on the 12th October.
Warning: Will Make Readers Wince.

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…

Apologies to anyone trying to buy from the eXcessica site today. It should now be available to buy instead of displaying as coming soon. You can get it here, and the print version from CreateSpace is also available here.
It's also available from the major online ebook stores such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords, and in a variety of formats.
This is sort of my donation button if you enjoyed reading the series. Thanks for the support and I hope you like the little extras in the novel.
Succubus Summoning 201 should be out later this year. That's a release to get more excited about... ;)

“Is this where you tell me, ‘Yer a wizard’,” Phil said.
The man laughed. “No, not a wizard,” he said. “A warlock.”
“What’s the difference?” Phil manhandled a big bin liner full of crap into the skip.
“One’s make-believe while the other is very much real.”
So are daemons…
Phil Rowling, a normal eighteen-year-old, discovers this when he is plucked from a dead-end life of fast-food service and enrolled into Wargsnouts College for Warlocks. At the college students are taught how to summon and control daemons from hell.
Everyone at Wargsnouts knows what a succubus is, and why warlocks summon them. It’s a dirty joke shared in sniggers amongst the students. Succubi are female sex daemons, famed for their mastery of the arts of pleasure. Eager to experience this pleasure first-hand, Phil and his friend, Jake Pulman, take the Daemonica Malefique from the library and use it to summon a pair of succubi for a night of sexy fun. After all, succubi are sex daemons, used only for sex, how dangerous can it be…
Phil finds out exactly how dangerous when the ritual goes wrong and he is taken prisoner by a harem of hot succubi. Trapped in a perverse corner of hell, can he escape before the erotic wiles of the succubi claim his life and soul…?
Yes, I finally got around to collecting my Succubus Summoning 101 series together into a novel. If you ever wanted the complete story in a nicely formatted ebook, or even an actual paper-print book, you'll get your chance in a week's time.
So what's new? As you may have noticed already from the little excerpt in the blurb above, I've included some extra pages to give more of Phil's background--how he came to be recruited, who he met on enrolment, and so on. Nothing major, I don't want to dilute all those sinful succubus sex scenes after all, but enough to add more flesh to the world. I also spent some time cleaning up the chapters, fixing some iffy grammar, correcting typos; basically all the boring editing stuff required to bring the novel to as close to a professional standard as I could manage.
One thing I haven't cleaned up is the sex. Some authors tone their work down before putting it up on sites like amazon. In true John Carpenter style, I cut nothing. No need to worry there. Verdé and company are just as sexually uninhibited (depraved?) as before.
In case you're wondering, I'm not going to pull the existing chapters from Literotica and the other places I posted them. While I intend publishing the follow-up, Succubus Summoning 201, as an ebook first, I will continue to serialise the chapters on Literotica. All I ask is if you read the series and enjoy it, please support my writing by buying the ebook.
If you haven't read it yet, whoo boy are you in for a treat!

It's available now from amazon. Or you can even buy it from eXcessica directly.
Here's another little excerpt, this time from The Spiders of Thomisoidus:
Of the list of possible planets to be posted to, Thomisoidus was down in the bottom half. It was a gloomy, brooding place. Vast swathes of the planet’s surface, the only habitable areas, consisted of gigantic twisted trees rising out of a vast primordial bog. The light from Thomisoidus’s sun was so weak the vegetation was all brown, almost verging on black, as if even this small amount of reflected light was grudgingly returned. Beneath the canopy the forest was swathed in perpetual dark gloom. Festooned with decrepit old lines of spider silk, most of the forest Joe had seen resembled the sets from old antique horror flatties.
Thomisoidus wasn’t without its positives. One of them was currently leading their small expeditionary group as a guide.
“We should leave,” Amycis said, checking the silent trees around them. “The fire may attract others.”
Amycis was typical of the Aphantokiles, the indigenous people of Thomisoidus, which meant by Earth standards she was a total babe. She—like all the Aphantokiles—had bright blue skin and long lilac hair. So what, it really didn’t matter when the average Aphantokile had a figure that looked like it had come straight from a Bosom Babe focus node and their cultural philosophy precluded the wearing of any clothes. It wasn’t a surprise The Company used pictures of the Aphantokiles to sucker gullible fools into signing up for five year residency contracts.
Joe was one such fool. He’d been too busy dreaming of a paradise planet populated with blue-skinned alien babes, he’d rushed to sign up before actually bothering to do the research.
Yeah, not so smart. Had he done some checking up first he’d have discovered the things The Company neglected to mention—the endless bogs, the perpetual gloom and the spiders, those damn creepy-eyed giant spiders.
Too late now, he was stuck here, four and a half years still to go on his contract. What a moron.
He consoled himself by watching the lovely curves of Amycis’s ass waggle from side to side as she walked in front of him. Absently, he fantasised about that perfect peach bouncing in his lap even though it was a waste of time. It wasn’t that the Aphantokiles weren’t approachable, it was just...well...it was complicated.
Joe was woken from his daydream by a sudden crack and cry of surprise. Part of the felled log they were walking on gave way underneath Amycis’s feet and she toppled over the side. They weren’t very far from the ground and it was only a short tumble to the floor below. Thankfully the bog wasn’t so deep here and Amycis had fallen into a shallow section where the water didn’t rise much higher than her calves.
Everything would have been fine—Amycis was unhurt and already getting back to her feet—but then a monstrous spider appeared out of the gloom right behind her.
