"My Very Own Serial Number" is now an e-book

This is one of the stories I'm proudest of writing, and it's now for sale at Smashwords (where, as usual, you can get a 25% discount for the first month of sales - the coupon code is HV86F). You can also get it on Amazon

Here's the synopsis:



Amanda is smart, gorgeous, and not afraid to strip for money; but she’s too na├»ve for her own good. When she finds a web service that will let her sell nude photos while preserving her anonymity, she doesn’t question the idea at all. It sounds wonderful, and it even allows her to try a host of top-shelf products for free. They seem free, anyway; Amanda doesn’t notice the secret cost to her free will.

Her boyfriend is more skeptical of the scheme, but he doesn’t stand a chance against Amanda’s new friends. Soon she’s involved with a snarky lesbian photographer who helps her make her (anonymous) name in the modeling world and initiates her into the deepest mysteries of One World Future. The boyfriend is long gone by then, but he’s not forgotten – by Amanda or the ones who now control her.

If you enjoyed “Willing Subject,” you’ll love “My Very Own Serial Number.”

This story involves brainwashing, straight sex, lesbian sex, light bondage, conspiracy theories, and a smattering of aliens.

Yay! I've been wanting to read this one, hadn't gotten around to it before you pulled it off the archive.

One question though, what's "zentai?"

I'm glad you're looking forward to the story. :-)

"Zentai" is full-body enclosure in a form-fitting suit. The background on this blog is a photo of a pile of people in zentai suits, and if you've read Sleepwalkers, you know someone's zentai fetish plays an important role there too.

I mainly like zentai when it's the right texture, something that looks like it could be latex or rubber. That doesn't apply so much to the body suits in MVOSN, but the tag is accurate and will pique the interest of zentai fetishists, who aren't normally as picky about material as I am.

Somewhat off topic, but I'm not sure where it would be on topic - I noticed there's a whole bunch of stories missing from your EMCA page that are not currently e-books either. Are they upcoming? I'll happily wait and pay, but I miss them!

Thanks for noticing. :-) Yes, all or almost all of them will eventually end up as e-books ("White Slavery" was never any good, but I might rewrite it one day).

I left the ones that were collaborations with other writers, plus "Spellbound," "Solitaire," and "Raggedy Anne," which I plan to put in anthologies, but which I think work well as free publicity pieces.

In the meantime, just for the record, I'm plotting a new e-book that will be extra special: a "Choose Your Own Adventure." It'll take some time to put together, but I think everyone will love it.
