Story Inspiration - A Succubus for Freedom

After a slight pause to Covid and getting other things back on track, it's time to continue with the impromptu Q'n'As about the stories from my various collections.  We're now up to the 4th collection: "A Succubus for Freedom".

For a reminder, here is the list of stories from that collection:

1) A Succubus for Freedom *
2) Exile
3) Guard Duty
4) Don't Fuck the Flowers
5) The Biggest Tits in the World
6) A Night at McHooligans
7) Barbarian vs Succubus *
8) Onychophoral Dreams *
9) Naga Massage Review
10) Come on the Candle *
11) What Bad Boys Get For Christmas
12) Riding the Medusa *
13) Locked in with a Succubus

* exclusive to this collection

If you have any questions about the inspiration behind or anything that happened in these particular stories, fire away below.

As I mentioned, the last couple of months have been disrupted by Covid and other distractions.  I'm trying to get up to speed again.  I was blocked for a while trying to write the Story Inspiration segment for "A Succubus for Christmas".  I've now got over and completed that.  I need to prep the manuscript and give it a thorough editing pass.  Once that's done, I'll get the collection back up on Amazon and other places ASAP.

Public Demo Version of "House of Hellish Harlots" updated to v0.029

So, what happened to February?

A bit of burnout followed by a lot of Elden Ring, which thankfully seemed to fix the burnout problem.

I'm back and working on The House of Hellish Harlots again.  Patrons got the first two of the new batch of harlot scenarios (I have another 6 or so queued up behind that are written to various degrees of completion).  These are the scorpion-tailed geisha, Sasori Oiran, and the White Latex Milkmaids, Elita-05 and Elita-07.  That comprises version 0.030 and can be obtained on my Patreon here.

With the Patreon version up to v0.030, that means I can get the public version back to being one release behind.  v0.029 is a relatively small release as I was concentrating on writing new raw harlot scenarios for that month.  It adds 1 harlot - the 'loveheart' succubus, Amoura D'Coeur.  She is intended to be a two part scenario with her much more dangerous 2nd visit to be added at a later date.  For now, you can enjoy her attentions in relative safety.

The House of Hellish Harlots can be played here.

More lovely art of Nurse Honey

Thank you again to Mark45 for having this commissioned and for allowing me to share it here.  The artist is Marco Marco and can be found on twitter as @hiradeira.

Nurse Honey is suspiciously coquettish here.  I suspect someone is about to get in too deep.

Story Inspiration - A Succubus for Valentine's Day

As I said in a previous post, to mark the rerelease of my ebook short story collections I want to add a section at the end with behind-the-scenes notes.  So, if you have any questions about story/characters/inspiration, fire away below.  It'll likely be something I hadn't considered and would therefore be good to add in that section.

Today we'll be looking at "A Succubus for Valentine's Day".

Here is the running order for that collection:

1) A Succubus for Valentine's Day
2) Initial Infiltration
3) The Succubus Heart Squad**
4) Puffed Up*
5) The Spiders of Thomisoidus*
6) Delivery Special Soap
7) Knight vs Succubus
8) Interrocution
9) Crushed Between Her Breasts
10) Venus of the Red Lights
11) The Soul Worm
12) Foam Shower*
13) A Summer Dance with a Succubus

* Exclusive to this collection

** This was the 1st chapter of Succubus Summoning 101 in the original collection.  Back then there was a minor gold rush of people rushing to self publish on Amazon's kindle platform and some less scrupulous people were ripping stories off places like Literotica to publish under their own name.  I'd already had someone try to swipe the Succubus Summoning series a year earlier for a smaller fan-writing site, so included the 1st chapter of SS101 in this collection (which was originally written as a standalone short story) as a form of pre-emptive copyright protection.  Now that Succubus Summoning 101 exists as its own book, that isn't necessary, so I'm planning to replace it with the appropriately Valentine's Day themed "The Succubus Heart Squad".

Fire away with questions below.  I did get distracted for a while at the start of the year, but I am hoping to get these collections back up on Amazon ASAP.

Story Inspiration - A Succubus for Christmas

Despite getting distracted by various things, I still want to get those old short story collections back up for sale again.

One thing I wanted to add was a little segment at the back detailing the inspiration behind the stories.  Writing them (or rather rewriting them as I wrote some for Christmas and Valentine's Day a while back) did unfortunately lock me up last month and is part of the reason why I've been a little quiet recently.  It's usually the non-fiction that locks me up, for some reason.  It's why I stopped blogging on almost anything other than documenting recent releases.

In this case I wasn't happy.  What I was writing felt self-indulgent.  I know I'm only trying to emulate what I've read in other horror short collections/anthologies, but let's face it, I'm not Stephen King and a previous publication history of "I uploaded them to Literotica" is not as interesting as a list of dates and original magazines the stories were published.

I think it might be better to use this segment to answer questions people might have on the inspiration for the characters and story, or to clarify things I intentionally left vague and cryptic.

Starting up is "A Succubus for Christmas", which has this line-up:

1) A Succubus for Christmas
2) The Masterton Covenant
3) Bubble Bath
4) Flesh Pitchers of Prague
5) Hookah'ed
6) Pool of the Undine
7) Slayer vs Succubus
8) Arachne's Web*
9) Wrapdance
10) The Coils of Aenictia
11) Squeezed
12) Happy Ending
13) Incall with a Succubus

*exclusive to the collection

If you've read the stories before and have any burning questions on them, fire away below.

That might be a little more interesting for me to write about than "I was inspired by a monster girl picture I saw on the internet and uploaded the story to Literotica on [insert date here]".

More Potential Covers for "A Succubus for Christmas"

 Getting closer, I think.

1. My current favourite (and why I put it first).  Abstract enough that the usual AI weirdness doesn't seem out of place.  I think I might change the font colour from gold to silver to make it stand out from the background.

2. Technically the 1st from filenames, but I thought I'd change the order to put the good one first.  This one has similar problems to the old pic I posted and is the weakest of the 4 options in my opinion.

3. Okay, but maybe not as good as 1 and 4.  I like that she appears to be wearing some kind of bondage mask.  Gold again might not the right choice for the font.

4. My second favourite.  The colours are nice and vibrant.  Has a decent impression of a feminine figure without falling into the uncanny valley problems.
