2013 in Review & Ch. 7 of Wolf

Good grief it's been a busy year for me!!!  But before we get started with that, make sure to check out Chapter 7 of Taken by the Wolf on Literotica =)  Ok... now onto the past year!

I started writing Marriage Training in January 2013... so it took almost an entire year for me to finish that one!  Pretty close to anyway =)  It's probably the most involved story I've written for Literotica.  And, as usual, one of my favorites.  I'm looking forward to 2014 and putting out the book version =)

I finished off the Poker Loser Trilogy and finally released Winning Hand, the last book of the trilogy, also in January.  That was a big deal for me because that was my second ever Literotica story and one of the favorites of people throughout the years.  Looking back at it, I always feel like I did a surprisingly good job considering that it was my second story, I didn't have a lot of experience in the stuff that I was writing about, and I didn't have a lot of experience writing period.  It holds up and that makes me happy.  Some of my older stuff I read it and I'm like "I must have written this for the Survivorphile contest when I was trying to churn out large quantities."  I mean, even then, I wrote pretty decent erotica, but the actual storylines weren't real interesting / the characters were kind of shallow.  But Poker Loser is still one of my favorite stories that I've ever written.

This past year I also finished off the Venus Rising Quartet, which was also very exciting for me because fans of the Venus School of Sex on Literotica were the reason I started publishing on Amazon in the first place.  And now it's done!  Which was sad, but exciting because it let me move onto Stronghold!

And speaking of original stories, I also wrote my first book that doesn't have anything to do with anything I've ever written for Literotica - not even tangentially.  Birching His Bride came out in March and the second book in the quartet, Dealing with Discipline quickly became my highest selling book EVER in its release month.  Apparently people like the rough Victorian punishment erotica with some romance!  Which made me happy because I like it too =)  If I could have gotten the third book out this month I would have, but I'm seriously sooooo close, so that'll be my first book of 2014.

I  need to send out MAJOR thank-yous to AquaPrincess, Fifi, Lydia and Amanda, all of whom helped me out during the past year with getting these books out and definitely had a huge impact on the quality of the books that were released.  I can't thank you all enough for your help over the past year.

So yeah.  This was a very busy and exciting year for me.  I had four books come out on Amazon, started making my books available for the Nook, wrote my most intensive series ever for Literotica, and in general just had a smashing good time.  Thank you all for seeing out this year with me... tomorrow I'll be posting my resolutions for the upcoming year and talking about how well (or badly) I did with 2013, despite all the successes I've written about in this post LOL.  There's a LOT to look forward to this year!

Have a wonderful New Years Eve and stay safe!
