WARNING: Descriptions of actual animal death, plus nasty imaginary stuff.
It took me a while to figure out what you were on about, until I checked back through my journal and found this:
Not my best, but at least I’m not one of the Smashwords pornmongerers.
You missed the context, which immediately follows:
Valentine’s Day is a shitty day for an ebook site’s servers to go down like the cheap whores the users are trying to peddle.
I published that particular story close to Valentine’s Day, when Smashwords had a major server outage. I was stating my sympathy for the native pornmongers, a friend included, not condemning them—Valentine’s Day is like Black Friday for the erotica circuit, if the shops close on you, you’re screwed. As a point of fact, the story in question is NC-17 in nature, if you had taken a closer look.
I love porn and whores and pornmongering and whoremongering. I’m just not very good at it. I do have an ongoing project, though, which hopefully will someday see the light of day, and you can catch glimpses of here, including posts where I went to bat for Smashwords when Amazon tried to censor the site.
Outside of my professional writing, I “own” three succubi, one incubus, and one androgenus, three out of five of which work at the brothel touched on in the aforementioned project (current non-working title “that dickgirl thing”). If you’d like, one of them would like to settle things down…
Thank you, Dreizehn. (and thank you, #toastdraws, for your amazing art)
ETA: Also, look, I tried not to say this. I really did. But you can’t really threaten someone with “People might not buy your stuff” when I’ve opted in for my work to be free all month. I have never sold a single copy for actual money and don’t expect to.
Hello, Dear Reader! This is a place where my loyal fanbase (which will presumably exist once I start publishing porn) can ask questions about my work, things pertaining to me, or general bullshit.
Feel free to ask whatever you want, although I will filter out creepers—just because I write porn does not mean I want to have sex with you or your character. I would say it also does not give you the right to ask questions about my sex life, but I’ll just clear the board there by stating I don’t have one.
I’ll be posting random images that may or may not be related to the question in each post. This is a thing that I do. If I’m especially motivated* I may illustrate the answer in an incredibly crappy MS Paint comic. Be warned.
Before it can actually be made an Ask, “Why AskShotgun and not AskIzzy” is for two reasons: The URL was already taken and it looked weird anyway. “Shotgun” is a nickname based on my height that my psych teacher gave me in college, which I proceeded to bastardize into “Winchester” for my drag name because no one believes you if you say your nickname is “Shotgun”. Seriously, they think you are lame and sad and made it up yourself. It’s depressing, really.
I may also post tidbits and trivia relating to my work that don’t fit anywhere else, or ask for feedback if I think anyone is actually reading this. Until then, Ask away!
Oh God I’m so lonely.
*This will rarely or never happen, as I do not motivate well.
