So, it's no secret that I love to write. I've been around the *B/DL community or "scene" since 20002. I started writing that same year, and haven't stopped since. In 2002, I wrote Jake, and the following year its sequel.
But in 2004, I wrote The Story of David Mayter, and then I began the Aden series, and Kidnapped. Those stories in particular, I've received considerable merit. They don't center around a fap scene or are based off of wild fantasies - they're reasonably realistic. At least that's what I go for. And I think thats why some people like them, and some don't. And that's okay.
Point is, in recent years (especially for Kidnapped, and Aden 3 and 4) - I've put a LOT of effort and time into making some solid material for people to read. And I think it's paid off. Kidnapped, for example - has two threads (one in stories in progress, the other in finished stories), both of which add up to over 110 replies and almost 20,000 views!
I haven't released anything in a little while. I finished the Aden series last summer, but I've been hard at work at a few other things (they'll see the light of day soon enough).
The point of this post is, the next thing I want to do is going to be self-published and released in physical form. This is a goal of mine that I plan to make happen. I've done research on self-publishing, and I find it very doable and I'm extremely excited for it.
In the meantime, before I finish up what I'm working on (which is a way's away) - I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a possible novelized version of any of my stories. Now, interest goes beyond "Hey yeah that'd be cool". It involves money.
Would anyone here be interested enough to either purchase, support, or donate to - me possibly trying to get a physical form of my stories made?
I was thinking the full Aden series in one book. But, Kidnapped or David Mayter is possible (though I think David Mayter is out-dated in terms of my writing abilities. I'd rewrite it, as well as the first two Aden stories). I've got a bunch of ideas, like possibly just putting them all together in one package.
We're not talking about a lot of money. It's whatever you can afford. It'd be for the fans!
I would continue this thread but there is golf-ball sized hail outside of my window and a tornado warning in effect. So I have to go.
Let me know!
